The two new cast members on Real Housewives of New Jersey better be bringing it next season. How is Danielle Staub not a full-time cast member, again? She can throw shade like no other and she always brings the drama.
During one interview alone she shaded Margaret Josephs, her soon-to-be-ex-husband Marty Caffrey, RHONJ alums Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita, as well as Jackie Goldschneider, one of the two new Housewives. The other ladies better be bringing a lot to the table, if Danielle is giving this much and she’s only a Friend of the Housewives
Congratulations are in order former Real Housewives of New Jersey kid Ashlee Holmes. Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter just announced that she and longtime boyfriend Pete Malleo are married.
The two share a child together and have been engaged since 2016, so it was only a matter of time before these two tied the knot. Instead of opting for an over-the-top event, they had a very low key wedding.
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars were focused on the family time this week and they snapped plenty of photos.
New Jersey Housewife Teresa Giudice enjoyed some mother-daughter time with Milania Giudice– the true scene-stealer of Real Housewives. Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks threw a birthday party for her son. Albie Manzo shared an adorable photo with his niece. Jon Gosselin hung out with his daughter Hannah.
After Siggy Flicker left Real Housewives of New Jersey, many people assumed that OG cast member Danielle Staub would just move up from her “Friend of the Housewives” status to secure a full-time spot. That might not be the case though.
There are now reports that not one, but two new women have joined Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, and Margaret Josephs to film Season 9 of the show. Will one of them get a full-time spot in the cast? Will both of them? What about Danielle?
Once again, the Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers were teased with the idea that OG cast member Jacqueline Laurita might return to the reality show. And once again, Jacqueline shot down the offer and shared her reasons why with the public.
It turns out the reason that the fans were hoping for a Jacqueline return is the same reason she doesn’t want to do it; i.e. she is not down for round 6473 of fighting with Teresa Giudice.
With the Season 10 premiere of Real Housewives of New York on its way, expect more photos from the show’s stars on social media, just in time to get us all hyped up.

As loyal as I am (and have always been) to Real Housewives of New Jersey, I cannot help wondering where the show goes from here. Season 6 (with those twins and Amber Marchese) was the worst ever. Then they took a break in filming Season 7 since there’s no way they could have done a season of this show while Teresa Giudice was in prison. Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga made up after years of feuding during that season and turned their one-liners against Jacqueline Laurita. Other than that, the season was just OK. I was expecting so much more after waiting forever and a half for it, but I obviously watched every single episode (many times over).
Jacqueline was out for Season 8 and we watched Siggy Flicker and Margaret Josephs go at it for most of the season. Conversely, Teresa experienced her first season where she was on good terms with every cast member- including her former enemy Danielle Staub. With Siggy off the show, we are only left with some second-rate tension between Dolores Catania and “Friends of the Housewives” Danielle to sustain us. Is this the beginning of the end?
The last time we saw Kathy Wakile on Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice referred to her as a “cancer” that she needed to cut out. Since Real Housewives of New Jersey is essentially The Teresa Giudice show, it’s not surprising that Kathy is no longer a cast member.
What is surprising is that Kathy didn’t mention Teresa or Melissa Gorga (by name) in a recent interview about time as a Real Housewife. Most likely that was something the interviewers agreed upon beforehand because if I ever got a chance to talk to Kathy, those two would be the first people that I mentioned to her. She was at odds with her cousin Teresa the entire time she was on the show and Melissa shifted from #TeamKathy to #TeamTeresa, so I would love to know what she really thinks about her relatives.
