The two-season peace between Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice has come to an end. During the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast trip, Melissa yelled, “This one has you going in circles” at Teresa. Of course, “this one” that she was referring to is none other than Danielle Staub. The fact that these two managed to become
allies best friends after table flipping and a chase through a country club is mindblowing to fans.
Not only that, but Danielle’s bridezilla antics and below the belt insults aimed at Margaret Josephs were tough to support. Well, tough for everyone except Teresa. Nowadays, Danielle can do no wrong in Teresa’s eyes. And vice versa.
The reunion for Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 has just begun airing, and the drama shows no sign of slowing down. Not only that, but it looked like a glitter factory exploded in that room. The gowns and spray tans, were over the top. Teresa Giudice, the OG of RHONJ, was in a fiery mood, and she wasted no time in blasting newbie Jackie Goldschneider for being “a stalker.” Otherwise known as a fan. A photo together from a book signing? Run for the hills, Teresa!
Teresa also jabbed Jackie about her eating disorder by asking if Jackie had something to eat before the reunion. Then Jennifer Aydin hopped in to clarify that Teresa meant to say “thirsty.” And Dolores Catania, loyal soldier that she is, was not a fan of the way Jackie questions Teresa about how Teresa feels about her fans. Of course, Jennifer is still livid about the article that Jackie wrote about her palatial home and whether Jennifer spoils her children. (Spoiler alert: she does). Jennifer even gifted Jackie with a Turkish dagger to stab her in the back.
Yesterday had to be such an awkward day for Melissa Gorga to do press. Of course, promoting a show about arguing with family and friends has to be uncomfortable in general. Not only that, but those photos of Teresa Giudice holding hands with a 26-year-old random just hit the internet.
Obviously, Melissa and Teresa are not on the best terms these days. Nevertheless, that is such a tough conversation topic. In not-at-all-surprising news, Andy Cohen opened with that topic during yesterday’s Watch What Happens Live.
I cannot believe we’re already to the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion! Last night’s first installment of the ladies’ sit down with Andy Cohen was reality gold…and pewter and bronze and silver. Their gowns were like a medal ceremony in the Envy by Melissa Gorga Olympics. Also, whoever told Jackie Goldscheider that the attire was cleavage optional is clearly getting the last laugh. But at least Jackie’s least likely to have a wardrobe malfunction when being screamed at by the first eight seasons’ Teresa Giudice who throws
tables punches instead of rolling with them. Shockingly, Jennifer Aydin has her girls under wraps as well, although she does arrive in a Rocky-style blinged-out boxing robe. Of course, she does.
Andy welcomes the newbies before questioning Teresa about Joe Giudice’s impending deportation. Teresa is clearly upset, but they table the discussion for later in the reunion. He continues schmoozing the RHONJ cast before complimenting Margaret Josephs’ facelift. He even gets Dolores Catania to admit to butt implants with her own fat. Jackie shares she had a tummy tuck after giving birth to two sets of twins. Margaret also reveals that she and husband Joe Beningo shower together every morning.
No one is at all surprised by the seating arrangement at the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 Reunion. Teresa Giudice is sitting with
her soldiers Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin. On the opposite couch, Margaret Josephs is joined by Melissa Gorga and Jackie Goldschneider, duh.
However, Melissa had to be
jealous at least a little surprised that Margaret got the seat next to Andy Cohen. Then again, Melissa doesn’t have as many battles to fight this season. Margaret had it out with Jennifer, Teresa, and Danielle Staub, who will not appear on Part 1. Meanwhile, Melissa promoted her own store and took a genetic test to match with a “sister” that does not actually exist may or may not exist.
I can’t believe we’ve come to the end of this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. It seems like it has gone by so quickly, but in some ways, it’s been quite a long, drama-fueled road that culminated in the ladies seeing red at Jennifer Aydin’s anniversary party celebrating sixteen years with Dr. Poolhouse. Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub are perusing scarlet ball gowns while discussing Margaret Joseph’s gala. Danielle gets in a requisite amount of digs while questioning whether she’ll be well received at the party. Teresa reveals that she doesn’t have an issue with Margaret and sees no reason not to be her friend. Danielle bristles, questioning whether Teresa will have her back if someone comes for her at the event. Of course, Tre is nothing if not loyal. It was hard to even type that with a straight face!
Jackie Goldschneider takes her mother for a makeover, but her mom explains that her physical appearance has never had an impact on her self-esteem. Jackie believes her mother has felt she had to be frumpy to be taken seriously as a business woman. She compares that fear of finding beauty with her reconciliation with her sister after a fifteen year estrangement. I’m not sure what one has to do with the other, but her mother’s hair and make-up looks nice.
We don’t deserve The Real Housewives of New Jersey. This season has been the perfect season in so many waves. The new ladies were explosive right out of the gate. Both Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldschneider found themselves at the center of many jaw-dropping moments.
The tequila monster Jennifer SMASHED A GLASS AND THREATENED Melissa Gorga. Jackie went toe to toe with Teresa Giudice and lived to tell the tale. The drama was sizzling throughout the entirety of the season. Besides the new wives, we got to see the insane end of Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub’s friendship. WHAT A TABLE FLIPPING RIDE.
The biggest thing to look forward to now is the always dramatic reunion show. The Real Housewives of New Jersey always deliver come reunion time. Teresa manhandled
rag doll Andy Cohen during the Season 2 reunion. Teresa went up against all of her costars for multiple seasons in a row at the reunion tapings. Last year, Teresa exploded on Kim D in a memorable confrontation. CLINK CLINK. Hopefully, they kept the drinks to a minimum (looking at you Jennifer!) because tensions will be running very high. Will the Real Housewives of New Jersey survive the reunion show unscathed?
Real Housewives of New Jersey newbie Jennifer Aydin wasted no time creating drama on the show. There was her first ever girls’ trip to Oklahoma, where she bragged about her amazing house and all its amazing bathrooms. She also delighted in insulting Margaret Josephs’ friend, and long-suffering hostess, Polly.
Jennifer had no qualms about going on a second girls’ trip, much to conservative husband Bill Aydin’s dismay. The Cabo trip will go down as being the most infamous in RHONJ history. Margaret likened Jennifer’s plump and pouty lips to “a monkey’s a**hole.” At dinner one night, Margaret threw wine at Danielle Staub after Danielle cackled about how Margaret’s children are not in her life. Danielle flung a glass at Margaret, hitting Melissa Gorga’s leg. Finally, when Melissa accused Jennifer of throwing the glass, Jennifer smashed a glass on the table and brandished it at Melissa.
