Tonight’s Real Housewives of New Jersey episode is a dramatic one for Jennifer Aydin. She gives Jackie Goldschneider a souvenir from Turkey. No, it’s not a peace offering. Instead, it’s a passive aggressive gesture in retaliation for the article Jackie wrote about spoiled children.
Jennifer gives her an ancient Turkish dagger to “stab people in the back.” Did she just realize that she has to make some waves to get a callback for a second season? After bragging about her Paramus mansion for too many episodes to count, Jennifer amping up the drama tonight. Jackie isn’t the only Housewife she fights with.
Last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live was chock full of shade. Danielle Staub (shockingly) owned up to her bridezilla antics. Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club namesake Lindsay Lohan talked Real Housewives and her rumored hook up with Jax Taylor. Host Andy Cohen was loving every second of it and so was I.
The split between Real Housewives of New Jersey OG Danielle Staub and Marty Caffrey has been getting more vicious by the day. The couple’s May nuptials in the Bahamas was filmed for Season 9 of RHONJ. Still, it was clear from the beginning that this relationship was in trouble. The duo slapped each other with restraining orders in August, but they later dropped them. Danielle then retained counsel to end their marriage. Ahh…newlywed bliss!
Marty even listed the house that the
newlyweds exes are sharing for sale, but allegedly didn’t tell Danielle. On January 3, Danielle had police remove Marty from their home when the cops arrived regarding a domestic disturbance call. Danielle claimed that Marty is inflicting “emotional torment.” Perhaps it isn’t a great idea to both live in the same house while getting a divorce (just saying.)
Real Housewives of New Jersey’s nastiest divorce has just taken a disturbing turn. Friend of the Housewives Danielle Staub had police remove her estranged husband, Marty Caffrey, from their home on January 3.
The couple was married in May in the Bahamas while RHONJ’s cameras rolled. In August, the couple filed for, and later dropped, restraining orders against each other. Danielle then filed for divorce.
I’m not saying that Real Housewives of New Jersey is recycling old storylines and creating manufactured drama, but I’m not NOT going to say that. I guess it’s the curse of all of the long-running franchises, but sheesh! Joe Gorga, spend time with your dad. It will appease your sister Teresa Giudice. And she’ll go easier on your wife Melissa Gorga. However, what will become of your wife’s storyline if this happens? Also, newbies, stop trying so hard to be relevant. The pot stirring, the Chanel obsession, the article writing! Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Aydin are overachievers in this department. I guess they learned from watching the likes of Dolores Catania and Danielle Staub (except for the writing part). Exhausted, party of one here!
Back from Bimini, the women are easing back into their daily Jersey routines which includes coffee for Margaret Josephs and lots of screaming kids for the others. Dolores is still harping on ex-husband and roommate Frank Catania for omitting his whole “I got disbarred” conversation from their narrative. Across town, Jackie is lunching with Melissa who is stressing over the party she’s throwing for her son Joey’s first communion. Haven’t the Gorgas learned to keep their drama out of the church, especially where Joey is concerned? Jackie questions the status of Melissa and Tre’s relationship. Then, Melissa shares they two reconciled in Bimini. Jackie reveals that she’s sought the counsel of Dolores, but she’s not yet willing to extend the olive branch. Melissa hopes that Jackie will make her life easier by being the bigger person. Obviously, she knows she can’t count on Teresa for that!
On last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey Danielle Staub finally got her happily ever after…at least for a few months. The ladies wake up to the beauty of Bimini, and Teresa Giudice and brother Joe Gorga are finally getting along and bonding over some dumbbells. How appropriate! Margaret Josephs and husband Joe Benigno are also in tropical bliss. Melissa Gorga has foregone the weights for tanning oil to prep for Danielle’s bride squad photo shoot. Everyone is still reeling from Danielle’s comments about soon-to-be husband’s Marty Cafferty’s children. Margaret warns Joe to tread lightly if the guys take Marty out for some pre-ceremony bro shenanigans. Teresa calls Dolores Catania who isn’t the least bit sad she’s not included in nemesis Danielle’s big day. After hearing the previous evening’s dinner drama, she wonders if Danielle will even make it down the aisle.
Danielle is micromanaging her photo shoot, and I feel terrible for her beautiful daughters. The former housewife is disappointed that her tribe of bridesmaids isn’t constantly at her beck and call. Marge is concerned about being a girl that loves cheese in a group of skinny Minnies, and Danielle is peeved when Margaret refuses to take off her lacy pants. Thankfully she’s distracted by her desire to have a Baywatch strut photo and begins screaming out orders for that.
Did Real Housewives of New Jersey’s cameras ruin the loving (and oh so brief) marriage between Danielle Staub and her ex, Marty Caffrey? Well, that is what Marty believes.
In case you blinked and missed it, Danielle and Marty married in May in the Bahamas. In August, the couple filed for, and eventually dropped, restraining orders against each other, and Danielle filed for divorce. Isn’t love grand?
