I suppose no one can accuse Danielle of not being a romantic. Even with twenty engagements under her belt and the ink on her recent divorce papers still went, our favorite former “dancer” has found true love once again. <cough cough>
Two months into their marriage, Danielle Staub and Marty Caffrey announced that they were going their separate ways. Their divorce proceedings lasted even longer than the marriage itself. Now, it’s official.
They are finally divorced! Even though they are still living together in the same house. So how does Danielle feel now that it’s all done? She’s handling the situation with respect and maturity. Just kidding. This is Danielle we are talking about. Come on.
It was the splash heard all over New Jersey when Margaret Josephs and her husband, Joe Benigno, shoved Danielle Staub’s soon-to-be ex-husband Marty Caffrey in Jennifer Aydin’s pool. The bash to celebrate Jennifer and Bill Aydin’s sixteenth anniversary was featured on the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 finale. At least Bill didn’t spend all his time hiding in his pool-house.
Jennifer requested that the ladies wear red, and when Marty insulted Margaret’s appearance, Joe B. sure was seeing red. It wasn’t the first time that Marty slammed Margaret’s looks. At Milania Giudice’s listening party, Marty said that Margaret wouldn’t want to be in a room with Danielle because no one would be able to take their eyes off Danielle.
I can’t believe we’ve come to the end of this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. It seems like it has gone by so quickly, but in some ways, it’s been quite a long, drama-fueled road that culminated in the ladies seeing red at Jennifer Aydin’s anniversary party celebrating sixteen years with Dr. Poolhouse. Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub are perusing scarlet ball gowns while discussing Margaret Joseph’s gala. Danielle gets in a requisite amount of digs while questioning whether she’ll be well received at the party. Teresa reveals that she doesn’t have an issue with Margaret and sees no reason not to be her friend. Danielle bristles, questioning whether Teresa will have her back if someone comes for her at the event. Of course, Tre is nothing if not loyal. It was hard to even type that with a straight face!
Jackie Goldschneider takes her mother for a makeover, but her mom explains that her physical appearance has never had an impact on her self-esteem. Jackie believes her mother has felt she had to be frumpy to be taken seriously as a business woman. She compares that fear of finding beauty with her reconciliation with her sister after a fifteen year estrangement. I’m not sure what one has to do with the other, but her mother’s hair and make-up looks nice.
We don’t deserve The Real Housewives of New Jersey. This season has been the perfect season in so many waves. The new ladies were explosive right out of the gate. Both Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldschneider found themselves at the center of many jaw-dropping moments.
The tequila monster Jennifer SMASHED A GLASS AND THREATENED Melissa Gorga. Jackie went toe to toe with Teresa Giudice and lived to tell the tale. The drama was sizzling throughout the entirety of the season. Besides the new wives, we got to see the insane end of Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub’s friendship. WHAT A TABLE FLIPPING RIDE.
The biggest thing to look forward to now is the always dramatic reunion show. The Real Housewives of New Jersey always deliver come reunion time. Teresa manhandled
rag doll Andy Cohen during the Season 2 reunion. Teresa went up against all of her costars for multiple seasons in a row at the reunion tapings. Last year, Teresa exploded on Kim D in a memorable confrontation. CLINK CLINK. Hopefully, they kept the drinks to a minimum (looking at you Jennifer!) because tensions will be running very high. Will the Real Housewives of New Jersey survive the reunion show unscathed?
After a season full of glass smashing, wine throwing, and alliance shifting, Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 ends tonight. All of the ladies get together for a “red-themed” party for Jennifer Aydin’s sixteenth wedding anniversary. Who has a party for a sixteenth wedding anniversary?
Before the party, everyone cannot keep Danielle Staub’s name out of their mouths. And just think about this: she’s not even a full-time cast member. Nevertheless, they (pretty much) all want her off the show. Clearly. No one understands why Teresa Giudice is so loyal to Danielle. Oh right, she needs a
soldier sidekick friend by her side.
Love comes and goes on Season 9 of Real Housewives of New Jersey as fast as exits on the New Jersey Turnpike. Case in point, Danielle Staub’s barefoot wedding to Marty Caffrey resulted in a marriage that lasted for a New Jersey minute. Is that a thing?
In contrast, there’s Dolores Catania. She has managed to have a longlasting relationship with her ex-husband of all people. However, they insist it’s platonic. Last season, she welcomed her ex-husband/father of two Frank Catania back home. As a result, viewers, along with cast members, have wondered if the exes are actually BFF’s with benefits ever since. Come on, the chemistry between them is just so strong! Right?
Had you been waiting with bated breath like me for last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey? All week I pondered who would prevail in the battle of Envy by Melissa Gorga and Jennifer Aydin’s tacky Chanel. Frankly, I wouldn’t put my money on either of them to throw down after Margaret Josephs doused Danielle Staub with Dolores Catania’s wine, but crazier things have happened in Cabo! Also, I appreciate the RHONJ’s producers for giving us a “to be continued” episode last week. What’s that old saying? People in garish houses shouldn’t throw glass? Jennifer gets in Melissa’s face, and Melissa quickly retreats. Dolores steps in to intimidate Jennifer, and Danielle intervenes. No matter how much Danielle hates Dolores, she respects her ability to beat Jennifer’s monkey’s ass lip liner.
Dolores takes a walk to cool off. Margaret confides in Jackie Goldschneider about how disappointed she is in Teresa Giudice’s behavior. She thought they were friends. Why is Teresa condoning Danielle (and subsequently Jennifer’s) abhorrent behavior? Teresa chases down Melissa who is disgusted by her sister-in-law’s loyalty. Dolores approaches to second Melissa’s assertions. Tre is peeved by their statements while Melissa and Dolores find Jackie and Margaret to share what escalated. At the bar, Teresa, Jennifer, and Danielle defend their actions. At least Teresa tries to show Jennifer the error of her ways…sort of.
