During the most recent episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, a psychic revealed that Teresa Giudice has a boyfriend. After her former husband, Joe Giudice was deported to Italy, it was obvious that this RHONJ couple was over.
Now that their divorce was final, Teresa was hunting for a man. According to Melissa Gorga, her sister-in-law is in need of some sexual attention. And Teresa is eating lots of pineapple in preparation. I had never heard all about pineapple and it’s benefits for one’s love life. Who says Real Housewives isn’t educational?
Despite being a long time fan of the show, Jackie Goldschneider does not seem to know who she is up against on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. It’s just not a good idea to come for Teresa Guidice. Was Tre wrong for spreading a cheating rumor about Evan Goldschneider all over his filmed birthday party? Sure. Is Teresa going to acknowledge that? No. Is Teresa going to let you mention her child’s name in any context that isn’t idyllic? No. Is Teresa ever going to move on a perceived wrong-doing? No.
*Most* fans know these things about Teresa. It seems Jackie does not. She’s busy throwing thirsty birthday parties and calling Teresa story-line hungry. Meanwhile, Tre is “gifting” Jackie giant vibrators and calling out Margaret Josephs’ husband for hearing the same gossip about Evan. These women are opposite sides of the same dragged out coin.
Many characters in Real Housewives of New Jersey history have attempted to take down Teresa Giudice, or at least hold her accountable, but all have failed miserably. Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo threw every low blow possible her way. The army of Kims has spread every rumor in the book about her. Even her own ex-husband Joe Giudice got her thrown in jail, and Tre came back stronger every time.
And this season, we have Jackie Goldschneider trying to take a swing at it. SPOILER: it isn’t going well. Let’s remember that Teresa is arguably the queen bee of housewives, and Jackie started off as just a fan. Does she really think she stands a chance?
Season 11 of Real Housewives of New Jersey is almost here! And viewers already know that we are going to see “OG” Teresa Giudice hitting the dating scene. RHONJ viewers already saw her flirting with “Pool Boy” Tony Delorenzo last season.
Once Teresa’s husband, Joe Giudice, lost his deportation appeal , the writing was on the wall. In November 2019, Teresa accompanied her four daughters, and Bravo cameras, to Italy to see their father. Now that was some awkward footage to watch.
For years, Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers have been invested in the Manzo/Laurita family members. We met Dina Manzo and Caroline Manzo during the show’s very first episode. They are sisters who were married to the Manzo brothers. Dina has since divorced and re-married.
Jacqueline Laurita was another OG RHONJ cast member. She is married to Caroline and Dina’s brother Chris Laurita. Dina and Caroline have been infamously estranged for years, but it’s unclear if they had been in contact recently because of a family tragedy. Chris, Dina, and Caroline’s father Joseph Laurita has passed away.
Viewers love to complain about the “villains” on reality TV shows, but the truth is that we need those people. Without the pot stirrers bothering our favorite cast members, we would have nothing to root for, zero drama to be invested in.
Currently, the main Real Housewives of New Jersey villain is Danielle Staub. Even though she isn’t even a full-time cast member, she’s the show’s OG bad guy. Then, there were two ladies named Kim: Kim Granatell and Kim DePaola, better known as Kim G and Kim D. And, of course, (almost) all of the main cast members have a had at least one villain moment. Nevertheless, Kim D provided the viewers with a lot of iconic moments. She continued to come back until she truly wasn’t welcome, never actually securing a full-time spot on the show. Never, eber.
Oh the shade of it all! I’m not sure why Kim DePaola was never given a full shot on Real Housewives of New Jersey. She pretty much checks the boxes that require one to be on RHONJ. Fights with Teresa Giudice? Check. Shit-stirring gossip? Check. Curious hair extensions? Check. Why, if it weren’t for Kim D’s brick and mortar tribute to fashion, Posche, the high class ladies of New Jersey would have had to wait around for… Envy.
Kim truly is the gift that keeps on giving and she definitely doesn’t take anyone’s crap. Now Kim turns the special place she has in her heart for Teresa towards
Beverly Danielle Staub. Danielle, better known as Captain Hair Puller, has once again shown her true colors during the season. But will Danielle ever tire of potentially catching a case and putting her hands on other people? According to Kim D, all signs point to a big, fat nope.
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.
