But deportation aside, not much happened really. Jennifer Aydin was her usual extra self. And that meant that we spent the majority of the season reviewing her fight with Jackie Goldschneider over a damn pizza party. Sorry if I’m not impressed by that story line. Nor am I impressed by the revelation that Jennifer got plastic surgery. She’s married to a surgeon, she has five kids. I would be doing the same. Also, she looks amazing either way. But speaking of surgery….
The coronaviruspandemic disrupted life in very visible ways. Schools were closed, non-essential employees worked from home, and Netflix became a whole lot more popular. What was not apparent at first was how the lockdown would affect our guilty pleasure of watching reality TV. Specifically, of the RealHousewives of New Jersey. Cutting filming and production will create a lag time between the most recent season and the next.
Back in March, filming for Season 11 was cut short amid fears for the health of cast and crew. At that point, RHONJwas only a few episodes in before production was shut down. The Garden State has seemingly gained control of the coronavirus. As a result, the network has released a tentative timeline to resume filming.
We have seen the couple go head to head with Melissa Gorgaand Joe Gorga many times throughout the years. The longtime couple has never backed down from a fight, no matter who it is with. JoeGiudice is now taking his old moves that he previously reserved for his brother-in-law and moving them into the boxing ring!
Reality Tea is proud to announce that we’re collaborating with our fellow Evolve Media LLC websites for #WeSayThanks. This is campaign to thank and raise money for essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.
#WeSayThanks coincides with Police Week, Public Works Week, and National Medical Services Week. We have also created a limited-edition T-shirt, with the promise to donate $5 from each sale to charities that support our essential workers and their families during this difficult time.
We understand that the pandemic has affected everyone in some way or another. Charity should be about contributing what you are comfortable with and able to do. It is completely understood that not all of our readers are in the market for a philanthropic t-shirt. That is completely OK! Whether or not you purchase a shirt, we would love it if you joined our initiative by telling us who you are thankful for in the comments section of this article or on Twitter with the hashtag #WeSayThanks. A simple “thanks” goes a long way.
We would also like to thank some reality TV stars who have given back during the coronavirus pandemic. And, of course, we want to thank everyone who has given their time and money during this time, especially those who are not in the public eye. We appreciate you!
It has been a difficult few years for the Giudice/Gorga family, to say the least. Earlier this month, Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorgashared the heartbreaking news that their father Giacinto Gorga passed away. “Nonno,” as he was referred to by his family, was a beloved character by his grandchildren and RHONJfans alike.
Since Nonno’s passing on April 3rd, Teresa and Joe have both been sharing family photos on their respective Instagram accounts. Their kids have posted sweet messages and tributes to their grandfather. Joe Giudicealso posted some touching tributes to his father-in-law. Now, Melissa Gorga is speaking out on how the family is coping with their loss.
