Jennifer Aydin Real Housewives Of New Jersey

It’s always been a wonder to me what goes on behind closed doors in Jersey. The Real Housewives of New Jersey franchise has always rested on the fact that blood is thicker than water. We’ve seen how family loyalty can trump almost any outright mistreatment. But what happens when the outside friendships start to erode the family ties?

The last few seasons we’ve seen Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice try to manage their “sister-act” alongside Teresa’s growing friendship with Jennifer Aydin. In the final reunion episode of season 11 it seemed new lines had been drawn. There was Melissa, Jackie Goldschneider, and Margaret Josephs on one side. The other side sat Teresa, Jennifer, and Dolores Catania. Yet there was no clear rift between Tre and Melissa in any of this.

Melissa Gorga Shares Her Daughter’s Reaction To Marital Issues With Joe Gorga

Not that anyone asked, but my reaction to Melissa Gorga and her husband’s “marital issues” was one giant eyeroll. Obviously children of the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars would interpret and process things in a much different way, but you might be hard-pressed to find an adult who actually believed that mess. I’m sure Melissa’s sister tucked away in a cave somewhere would agree.

Every Housewife gets in a rut. After numerous consecutive years on one show surrounded by the same people, environments get tired and cast gets stale. Some ladies are stale on arrival and manage to hang on anyway. Speaking of Melissa, last season fans saw something they never thought they would see on RHONJ. This was a hiccup in the solid, sexy marriage between Melissa and Joe Gorga. While viewers and Jennifer Aydin might not have bought it for a second, her kids apparently did, and that isn’t good at all.

Jackie Goldschneider Teresa Giudice Real Housewives Of New Jersey

At the beginning of Season 11 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, it seemed as though Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider would never be friends. Let’s get this straight — Jackie started as a fan, while Tre is the queen B of RHONJ. And Jackie was coming for her, and we all know what can happen when you try to go against Teresa and her four dorters. The analogy heard around the world was seemingly the nail in the coffin. But then, shockingly, Tre showed some growth. Just a little, but a lot for her.

By the RHONJ reunion, the two made up and even made plans to go on a double date. Yes, Evan Goldschneider was opening to hanging with the woman who spread rumors about him cheating on Jackie. That takes being a bigger person, and Tre looks like she may actually be learning a thing or two about accountability. Hell has frozen over.

Jennifer Aydin Real Housewives Of New Jersey

I wasn’t terribly enamored with Jennifer Aydin her first season on Real Housewives of New Jersey. I thought Teresa Giudice had enough people sucking up to her and didn’t really care about Jennifer’s house, her 86 bathrooms, or her curious lack of area rugs. As time went on, I developed a tolerance of Jen based on the raw exchanges she has with her family and her unrelenting disdain for Melissa Gorga.

Jen’s husband is Bill Aydin. The man, the myth, Tony the Turk himself, has endeared himself to viewers with his reasonable approach to life, support of his wife, and friendship with the other husbands. But Bill is also a successful plastic surgeon and utilized his skills on Jennifer when she underwent a tummy tuck. Now Jen teases a “new look” on Instagram and fans wonder if Tony the Turk took his wife back under the knife.

RHONJ-Melissa-Gorga

Bravo has been serving us endless cast shake-ups across almost every franchise in recent history. The latest is the mass exodus from Real Housewives of Orange County. In that case, it’s out with the new, and in with the old. And please know that’s not an age comment, Heather Dubrow! Most of us are ready for the sequel of your reign!

When it comes to Real Housewives of New Jersey, there hasn’t been a cast shake up for the last 3 seasons! That’s almost as consistent as Joe Gorga’s unnecessary sexual innuendos. Word on the street is things could get mixed up before season 12, though. And tragically, no, I’m not referring to Joe gaining any other form of humor.

The summer is here in the Northern Hemisphere, and everyone wants to believe the coronavirus pandemic is over.  Restrictions have eased and people are ripping their masks off in a 21st Century version of bra-burning.

It may be a bit premature, and certainly people are still contracting the virus.  Each and every tally and life matters, but some just get more media spotlight than others.  In our beloved Bravo community several Real Housewives and their families have contracted and, thankfully, recovered from the disease.  Shannon Beador, Kyle Richards, Frank Catania, Margaret Josephs, Joe Beningo, Marge Senior, Kathy Hilton, Dorit Kemsley, and Jennifer Aydin all recovered from the coronavirus.  And now one more familiar Bravo face is battling COVID-19.

Even though the ladies of the Real Housewives of New Jersey are in-between seasons, the drama never stops. Last season featured several explosive head-to-head feuds that took a turn for the nasty. There were cheating rumors and bad analogies that kept up the bad blood between Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider. Melissa Gorga got into it with Tre, her husband (and bonafide Real Housewife) Joe Gorga and, of course, Jennifer Aydin. Jennifer knows how to push buttons, especially when it comes to MelGo and Margaret Josephs.

The Marge v. Jen feud particularly took a turn for the dark. They argued over the cheating rumors surrounding Evan Goldschneider and brought their husbands into it. Marge shamed Jen for being a stay-at-home mom and referred to Bill Aydin as her “meal ticket.” Jennifer, who seems to have no filter whatsoever, slut-shamed Margaret several times, including during the reunion. This feud is particularly hard because both bring something to the table every RHONJ season. And while they may never be good friends, they both make reality TV gold in my book.

Jacqueline Laurita Weighs In In On The Rumors About Joe Gorga Not Paying His Contractors; Says “I’ve Heard Those Rumors Many Years”  

Per usual, the latest season of Real Housewives of New Jersey came with rumors aplenty. Even more on theme, the house-husbands were deeply tangled into the mess. There was the entire Evan Goldschneider cheating debacle. Then there was the hearsay about Joe Gorga not paying his bills. Danielle Staub has also alleged something similar about Joey G.

This season, the rumor about Joe came from Michelle Pais. It was then backed up by Jennifer Aydin. Jennifer went a step further, though. Jennifer waited for her moment, and then dragged “The” Margaret Josephs into the fiasco. Let’s not forget Marge’s husband, Joe Benigno is a plumber.  Supposedly, off camera, Marge confirmed to Jennifer that she already knew Joe G didn’t pay his bills. Jennifer claims that Marge said something to the effect of, “You think I don’t know? My husband’s a plumber,” behind the scenes. Yikes.
