For the most part, Real Housewives of New Jersey has come through with the entertainment season after season.
However, there’s one season that really wasn’t great. At all. I’ve always felt that there was one RHONJ season that should be wiped from the history books; i.e. the DVR. And I feel validated knowing that Andy Cohen feels the same way I do.
I have a feeling that Bethenny Frankel is unaware of it, but she is in a (one-sided) feud with Jennifer Aydin. It all started with an Instagram comment that is standard Bethenny. She responded to a clip of Jennifer from a recent Real Housewives of New Jersey episode. Jennifer said, “I’m a funny girl. I’m a comedian. I get off on making people laugh.”
In response, Bethenny commented, “Said nobody funny about themselves ever.” It really wasn’t the biggest scandal, but, of course, a caller asked Jennifer about it during her Watch What Happens Live appearance last week.
We’re officially less than a month away from Season 10 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and the Bravo gods have finally smiled down on us with a sneak peek of the premiere.
Jackie Goldschneider shared a preview of the episode this week, and looks like the drama between the Jersey girls picks up right where it left off.
You know when Housewives are introduced but they don’t win over viewers? Sometimes we have the fortunate occasion when new wives come into the fold and stir things up a bit. Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldschneider were added to Real Housewives of New Jersey last season and they were far from boring. While Jackie was team anyone but Teresa Giudice, Jennifer found herself aligned with the veteran.
Sucking up being friends with a felon the main OG has it’s benefits. It provides a layer of protection and guaranteed screen time. Last year, we saw a relationship bloom between Teresa and Jennifer. Now in her second season, Jennifer says some friendships have taken a turn for the worse. With reports of feuds and handbags on fire, RHONJ is getting dirty. According to Jennifer, purses aren’t the only thing lit this season. Apparently pre-zen Teresa is back, and her temper is hotter than ever.
For a long time, Kim D’s fashion show was a Real Housewives of New Jersey staple. Who could forget Teresa Giudice chasing Danielle Staub around that country club? However, Kim D and Teresa are done and there’s a new fashion show to attend.
The entire Real Housewives of New Jersey cast showed up for the Envy by Melissa Gorga fashion show. Well, almost the entire cast. In not-so-shocking news, Danielle was not there. However, her status as a “cast member” is perpetually unclear.
At this point, it’s just a known fact that Ramona Singer is rude, right? How many people have said it? Pretty much every Real Housewives of New York star has called her rude. Even Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid called her out for being rude. Real Housewives of New Jersey pot stirrer Kim D said she is the rudest person she’s ever met.
If so many people are saying it, it has to be true. Now, Dolores Catania, someone who doesn’t talk shit about anyone (for no reason), is coming for Ramona. Dolores always keeps it classy. Until she whips out her inner Patterson. Watch out, Ramona.
The last Real Housewives of New Jersey was a revival for the show. They didn’t even need to bring in Kim DePaola, aka Kim D, to make things interesting. However, she’s still doing that. It’s just not in front of the Bravo cameras.
She still has a ton of tea to spill on her enemies Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. She discussed Joe Giudice’s possible deportation to Italy. As expected, she had a lot to say about the Teresa cheating allegations. She even came for Joe Gorga. It was a glorified family affair- with a little Ramona Singer shade thrown in to mix things up.
Revenge is a dish that Kim DePaola likes to serve hot. The recurring guest and chief pot stirrer on the Real Housewives of New Jersey is the queen of gossip. Particularly when the topic is Teresa Giudice. That’s not a one-way street though. During the Season 8 reunion, Tre infamously accused Kim D of being a madam.
Kim D has gleefully chimed in on the heated speculation surrounding the state of Tre’s marriage now that rumors of infidelity are swirling around. What’s the latest? Those photos catching Tre holding hands with a much younger man in Miami, who was definitely not her husband Joe Giudice. That hand belonged to Blake Schreck. Meanwhile, Joe is still cooling his heels in prison until March 2019 when he is expected to be deported to his native Italy.
