It’s a sad day for the Bravo family. Real Housewives of New Jersey patriarch and fan favorite, Nonno (real name Giacinto Gorga) has passed away. His death is an extra tough pill for the family to swallow since it comes only three years after wife Antonia passed away from pneumonia.
As the father to star Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga, Nonno has been around since the show’s beginning. With good reason – for a reality show that focuses heavily on close-knit Italian families, Nonno was right where he belonged. It was hard not to love him as he stepped up to help his granddaughters when Teresa went to jail, followed by her husband Joe Giudice. By far my favorite Nonno memory is from last season when he boiled a full octopus at 6:15 in the morning.
During the finale part of the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 reunion, Danielle Staub made her “final” appearance as a (part-time) cast member. During that same appearance, she also admitted that she would probably be back. In actuality, she’s hoping she can weasal her way back into the fold somehow.
She also denied being a “rat” because she told Melissa Gorga that Teresa Giudice is the one who encouraged her to pull on Margaret Josephs by her ponytail. Instead, Danielle focused on the semantics. She told the cast and Andy Cohen “ratting somebody out is somebody who goes to prison and gets arrested because someone ratted them out.” That doesn’t quite make sense, but that really is what she said. Click here for a clip of that explanation.
Did Joe Giudice get a paycheck for Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10? Even though he was in jail/ICE/Italy for the past few seasons, he’s still managed to dominate the storylines with all of his legal drama.
This season, a big topic of conversation was the “rumor” that Joe Giudice cheated on Teresa Giudice. She even admitted she found a secret cell phone that he used solely to contact another woman. And even with that glaring evidence, Teresa still wasn’t sure if he was cheating on her. Is she playing dumb? Or does that evidence really not sway her? Well, anyway, Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga c
ontinued to use her for screentime shared his thoughts on the Joe Giudice cheating rumors during Part 3 of the reunion.
The dramatic Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion has reached its conclusion. This episode is all eyes on Danielle Staub. Her final act as a cast member of this show is coming. It’s sure to be a fiery ending to her run. Also, what will happen with Teresa Giudice and Margaret Josephs‘ friendship? That hair pull might have ruined everything between them forever. I don’t really see how Marge and Tre move forward after that.
Jennifer Aydin has been stealing the show at this reunion, but the other women are sick of it. Melissa Gorga & Jackie Goldschneider are likely hoping Jennifer stays quiet during this final part. Good luck with THAT. She was entertaining, but it started to border on obnoxious. Just. Let. Someone. Else. Speak. PLEASEEEEEE. Can someone convince Dolores Catania to go full Patterson Dolo on her?
Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 concludes tonight with Part 3 of the reunion. Last week’s episode left off with Danielle Staub refusing to come out unless she’s sitting next to Andy Cohen.
News flash, Danielle, you are not a full-time cast member and you have not been since Season 2. As we saw in the trailer, Danielle ends up sitting nowhere near Andy. Instead, she’s ostracized to a chair by herself, and she couldn’t be sitting any further from Andy. In a Hail Mary attempt to get next to Andy, Danielle claimed she couldn’t hear Andy at the reunion because of where she sat last year. Sure, Danielle.
Joe Giudice is ready to issue a mea culpa. Just a few days ago, we reported on Juicy Joe wandering the streets of Italy, complaining about everyone’s reaction to the coronavirus. In case you missed it, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star posted a video to his Instagram account, griping about the lack of people in the streets and making the absurd claim that more people die from Viagra than the coronavirus.
Now I thought about reaching out to the CDC for comment on Joe’s claims. But, I figured it might just be a waste of my time. Either way, it looks like Joe might have already seen the error of his ways before I even had my chance to refute his claims. Thank god for that. I don’t think anyone was really following Joe’s feelings on such a serious matter too closely. Still, it really was in poor taste on his part.
Just what nobody asked for- another reality TV star is starting a podcast. Don’t we have enough of these already? Apparently not since Danielle Staub recently announced that she has a new podcast in the works.
On Real Housewives of New Jersey alone, Danielle’s best-friend-turned-enemy Margaret Josephs recently launched a podcast. Even Teresa Giudice’s estranged husband Joe Giudice announced his plans for a podcast. And this is just among the RHONJ cast members. The podcast market is just way too oversaturated with reality TV stars at this point. Yet, here we are.
Buckle up for the second part of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. On part one, Jennifer Aydin stole the show. She made the entire event revolve around herself. She found a way to insert herself into any and all conversations possible. Teresa Giudice has finally opened up about the issues in her marriage, so hopefully we learn more. There’s a lot more to that mess of a relationship than we are hearing.
Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, and Jackie Goldschneider are all sick of Jennifer at this point. Expect more fireworks to go off during part two. She has bad blood with all three women and is on the warpath at this reunion. The biggest question mark in the episode is Danielle Staub. What impact is she going to have? What will her final act as a cast member of this show be? We won’t have to wait too long to find out.
