If longtime Real Housewives of New Jersey fans know anything, it is that what you see isn’t always what you get with Danielle Staub. I’m looking at you, Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo!) And now, Margaret Josephs is finally accepting that fact.
So far in Season 9 of RHONJ, we have seen Danielle lose her mind because Margaret was invited, and wanted to attend, Dolores Catania’s ax throwing party. If I was Danielle, I would be afraid of all the women who have an ax to grind with me.
Even though Danielle Staub is not a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey, she always brings it. During the Season 9 premiere episode, there was some major foreshadowing for drama.
Danielle was talking to anyone who would listen about Dolores Catania’s ex-husband/current roomie Frank Catania getting disbarred. Danielle’s bridesmaids Margaret Josephs and Teresa Giudice seemed overwhelmed by her wedding planning demands. Not much happened, but the are laying the groundwork for future drama. Plus they threw two new girls in the mix, which has to really sting for Danielle. This is her second season as a “Friend of the Housewives,” yet Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Aydin are full-time cast members.
Real Housewives of New Jersey has always had a strong emphasis on family. The relationships between the early cast members of this show run deep and there is a lot of genuine animosity along with some strong love. At the beginning of the series, Teresa Giudice was considered family by Caroline Manzo, Dina Manzo, and their sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita.
Teresa and Dina are still close, but she has made it very clear that she cannot stand OG cast members Jacqueline and Caroline. Even Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga has issues with Jacqueline, although she is open to a Caroline comeback. Someone else who wants Caroline to return to the reality TV show is Dolores Catania. Not only that, but she wants Jacqueline back in the picture as well. Season 9 has already wrapped up filming, but bringing back the two OG’s sounds like a guarantee for drama for Season 10.
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars enjoyed some quality time with their kids this week. Kim Zolciak celebrated her daughter Ariana Biermann’s birthday. Former New York Housewife Jill Zarin hung out with her daughter Ally Shapiro. Teresa Giudice supported her daughter Gia Giudice while she cheered at her high school’s football game. Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks let her daughter Palmer play with a Shep Rose bobblehead. Who got that for her?
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?
