Is Real Housewives of New Jersey experiencing a case of déjà vu? So far in Season 9, fans have once again witnessed family tension explode between Melissa Gorga, her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, and her husband (and Teresa’s brother) Joe Gorga. People- can’t we all just get along? Obviously not, or it would be a boring show.
The family pulled together and buried old grievances when Teresa served her 11-month prison sentence for fraud. Now her husband, Joe Giudice, is serving his prison sentence and faces deportation to Italy when he is released in March of 2019.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville sparked rumors that Orange County Housewife Kelly Dodd will join RHOBH with her Instagram caption? Can’t we just keep Kelly on RHOC and get a Brandi comeback in the 90210 instead?
Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghishared a solo shot rocking some lingerie. In contrast, her costar Mike Shouhed shared a selfie from the dentist’s chair. Hopefully, that does not become a trend.

In 2014, both Teresa and Joe pleaded guilty to fraud and both were sentenced to prison time. Teresa served 11 months, while her husband received a whopping sentence of 41 months. Joe, who came to this country from Italy with his parents when he was 1-year-old, never became a citizen. The judge decided to deport Juicy Joe because he “committed a crime of moral turpitude.” What Teresa will do if her husband is deported to Italy is a source of endless speculation.
Real Housewives of New Jersey has reverted back to Giudice vs. Gorga era. After two seasons of peace, Teresa Giudiceis at odds with her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga. The three of them argued every single episode this season. To be fair, we are only four episodes in. That had to be a tough time for the family. I imagine it’s also difficult to watch back.
I don’t blame Teresa for escaping the show (and social media critics) with a family vacation. Teresa and her daughters got away from the New Jersey cold with an escape to Turks and Caicos.
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.
Teresa and her daughter Gia Giudice rallied for Giacinto and encouraged Joe to see his father more. Joe claimed that he was so busy with his business. Teresa wasn’t buying it. Both Joe and Teresa dragged Melissa into it. The whole thing is just a mess. It could easily be resolved by a phone call or a lunch date here and there. Nevertheless, it is the focus of the season, at least at this point.
