Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey, we were reminded of why Danielle Staub is basically the worst – and that she’s truly in her element while on stage with men gyrating all over her. Since that’s exactly what the ladies served up for her bachelorette party, we got to see the many faces of Danielle go from full on rage to frightening glee all within a 30 minute timeframe. Even though Margaret Josephs was the ambassador of Danielle’s dreams, all she had to show for it at the end of the episode was a huge party planning bill and a chewing out.
Margaret was also put in charge of buying penis straws and dildos for Danielle’s big night. So we find her in the store looking for the “classy” items Danielle would approve of. Ahh…’twill be a night to remember! They shall celebrate Danielle’s last night of freedom in style before her marriage to Marty Caffrey, which will last approximately 4 seconds before restraining orders and divorce papers are filed. But who’s counting?
Both Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Aydin are making an impact on Real Housewives of New Jersey. The rookie Housewives are far from bashful. Obviously, Jennifer is an extremely polarizing character. Starting with the positive, Jennifer gives us a lot to talk about. Then again, the incessant bragging got old. Very quickly.
Next episode, it looks like Jackie earns her stripes and calls out the OG herself, Teresa Giudice. Teresa claims that Melissa Gorga can “control” her husband. Jackie points out Teresa’s blatant hypocrisy. She went to jail (in part) thanks to her own husband. Yes, I know that Teresa was responsible for her own actions blah blah blah. Nevertheless, she could not “control” her husband, who is currently rocking an orange jumpsuit. Pot, meet kettle.
If the Real Housewives of New Jersey haven’t been banned from the fly-over states, it’s a corn shucking miracle! Poor Oklahoma is still dealing with the weaves and wackiness from last week’s episode as the ladies head off to a tense dinner. Margaret Josephs is happy to hear that Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga seemed to have smoothed over their argument…although Tre is unaware of how riled up Joe Gorga is after hearing Melissa’s rehash of the nasty breakfast. At the restaurant, Jennifer Aydin is talking about her ginormous house. She has to have an extra “wife” to cook and clean her seven bedroom house. She even has cameras in every room and she does random bag checks before the nanny heads out for the evening. Jackie Goldschneider finds it frighteningly hilarious that Jennifer trusts the nanny with her children but not with her collection of Chanel.
To change the subject, Margaret enlists the ladies in a game of two truths and a lie. Her statements: she used to fool around with her high school gym teacher, she’s only done cocaine once, and her ex-husband used to lock her in a closet when she made him angry. The women are surprised to hear her lie was the gym teacher. They can’t imagine feisty Margaret putting up with that in her marriage. No one believes Dolores Catania when she states she had sex with her ex-husband/roommate Frank Catania last week. Jennifer goes for shock value with tales of playing the submissive to her bestie’s dominatrix, getting a butt lift, and pooping herself in traffic. She was lying about the butt lift. Jennifer was wild before she met her ultra-conservative husband.
So far, Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 has a lot of promise. There is a lot of tension with the Housewives. Let’s hope that major drama is on the way. Their trip to Oklahoma has been more of an aggravation for the Housewives than a vacation. Then again, these Real Housewives trips are usually heavy with the drama, which is why they do multiple every season.
Tonight’s new episode picks up where the last one left off. Teresa Giudiceand Melissa Gorga are still at odds about Joe Gorga’srelationship with his father. Some fans are engrossed in that story. Then there others who are over (multiple seasons of) their family drama. At least we have a new storyline tonight! Margaret Josephs calls out new Housewife Jennifer Aydinfor her lack of manners.
