Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga went to Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s show with the New York City cast members Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill, and Tinsley Mortimer. Did they all sit together? Did they pregame the event? Was there a post-game? I have so many questions. Danielle Staub shared her own photos from the show, did she hang with them too? Did she go on a different date?
Real Housewives of New Jersey is a rare show in the Real Housewives franchise because the side characters are just as vital as the actual Housewives. As the ladies have said Kim DePaola aka Kim D is a “cockroach” that just hasn’t gone away. She probably never will if she continues to get the newly zen Teresa Giudice so riled up every single time she is mentioned- let alone when she actually appears. It is prime TV- although a lot of people are getting sick of the chronically recycled stunt.
Then there are other side characters that make the show better in a positive way. One of those is Teresa’s third daughter, Milania Giudice. She always manages to steal the show, say what everyone is thinking, and bless us with the best meme material. Obviously Milania is just a child, but Teresa recently revealed that she weighed in on the feud with Kim D.
Original Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub made her big comeback this season after five seasons away from Bravo. She started out on the show as a friend of Jacqueline Laurita and she left the show as an enemy of Teresa Giudice’s after Teresa flipped a table on her and chased her through a country club.
Now Danielle and Teresa are on good terms, but the same cannot be said about Danielle and Caroline Manzo, Dolores Catania, and Siggy Flicker – which is surprising to just about no one. Speaking of Danielle’s beefs, she recently revealed that she has issues with Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes.
Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey just wrapped and there are already rumors about next year’s cast. There is a lot of speculation that original cast members Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo will return to the show which would be very interesting considering their contentious relationships with Teresa Giudice. Plus fellow OG Danielle Staub is back on the scene these days so there is plenty of potential for drama.
Teresa was asked about the possibility of Jacqueline and Caroline coming back and she hurled some harsh insults their way. Now Jacqueline’s daughter (and Caroline’s niece) Ashlee Holmes is firing back.
Now that Danielle Staub is back on Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s hard to not feel nostalgic for the good old days. The first two seasons of this show were nothing short of iconic. Sure, there have been some epic seasons since then (and some lackluster ones as well), but it’s hard not to miss the original cast.
Dina Manzo lives in California now so it makes no sense for her to be on the show, but there are some rumors swirling that Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo might return to Real Housewives of New Jersey next season. Now the only remaining OG cast member, Teresa Giudice, is sounding off on the rumors.
There are few things that I love more than a Real Housewife attempting a music career. If the song is great, then that gives me another bop to listen to. If the song is terrible, it’s entertaining for a totally different reason. I will listen to it just as much (if not more). It’s really a win-win for the super fans like myself.
That’s why I miss Melissa Gorga’s early days on Real Housewives of New Jersey when she wanted to be a pop star and her husband built a recording studio in their basement. These days she is caught up with her clothing story Envy and all of that restaurant drama, but if she ever wanted to record another song, I would be all for it.
The first two Real Housewives of New Jersey seasons were nothing short of iconic. Teresa Giudice, Danielle Staub, Dina Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, and Caroline Manzo made up the perfect cast. Eventually RHONJ turned into the Teresa Giudice Show and Teresa turned against sisters-in-law Caroline and Jacqueline (and vice versa).
Now there is some chatter that Caroline and Jacqueline might return to Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Whether you love Kim DePaola or love to hate her, Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers have to admit that she makes good TV. Her best friendship turned rivalry with Teresa Giudice has blessed us all with some epic Posche fashion show encounters over the years.
This season, Teresa claimed Kim D spread rumors that she is “reigniting old flames” while her husband is locked away in prison. Kim
stirred up so much shit made such a major impact that she was invited to argue with Teresa to share her side of the story at the Season 8 reunion.
