It has been about 80 years since the last season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. If you’ve been wondering what most of the cast has been up to during the RHONJ hiatus, you can ask any local New Jersey plastic surgeon. We might need name tags for the first few eps, until we figure out who everyone is.
The Season 11 trailer has dropped and it is full of drama… intrigue… and… so much hairspray. Thankfully Teresa “I’m Single And It Will Be Painfully Obvious” Giudice still has that gentle, lilting voice that could put you to sleep like a lullaby. Melissa Gorga will return to defend her marriage, so nothing new there. Jennifer Aydin comes back, committed to her lip liner and tequila. Will this be the year Delores Catania offers more content than agreeing with Teresa? It’s time to find out.
Season 10 of Real Housewives of New Jersey was Danielle Staub’s last stand, and she chose to go out with a bang. At a shopping event, after bickering with Margaret Josephs, Danielle gave Margaret’s ponytail a vicious pull. It was horrifying. None of the other RHONJ stars could understand why Teresa Giudice sided with Danielle.
Near the end of the season, Danielle revealed to Melissa Gorga that Teresa encouraged her to pull Margaret’s hair, saying “Do it. Do it.” It was a real shocker to find out that Teresa cheered on the attack. Of course, Teresa was already angry at Margaret for jokes about Teresa cheating with young guys.
Real Housewives of New Jersey “OG” Teresa Giudice is living her best life right now. She split from long-time husband Joe Giudice after his pesky deportation to Italy. Before that, Teresa stood by her man through infidelity rumors and a stint
in jail at camp.
Teresa and Joe’s divorce was mostly completed in September, but the RHONJ stars are waiting for a court date to finalize the paperwork. Now Teresa has a new man, and she made it Instagram official.
When Caroline Manzo left Real Housewives of New Jersey, she and Teresa Giudice were not on good terms. They’ve been publicly shading each other ever since.
However, they came together for a 2020 Super Bowl commercial, which had a million other people in it, but it was still exciting to see them back on screen together.
Other than bringing out the green-eyed monster in Teresa Giudice, what does Melissa Gorga bring to Real Housewives of New Jersey? Oh, right, a fake baby storyline, a fake sister storyline, a fake restaurant, and is there anything else I’m forgetting? Oh, yeah, the constant Envy shout outs and that time she advocated for marital rape.
Well, she does bring Joe Gorga’s comedic relief (and occasionally offensive remarks), but what storyline does she actually have? That’s what her former RHONJ nemesis Jacqueline Laurita wants to know.
Teresa Giudice is one of Bravo’s most famous stars. Not because she is an engaging public figure, who gifts the people with words of wisdom during trying moments. It’s mostly because she flipped a table and has done more time behind bars than Lucky Luciano. A few Real Housewives of New Jersey diehard fans still feel some type of way about Teresa. She was never particularly good at owning up to her crimes or being accountable for her attitude.
But Teresa hasn’t exactly had it easy. She raised four daughters with little help. She dealt with marriage infidelities. Law violations and extended camp stays proved to be too much for Teresa’s 20 year relationship with Joe Giudice. Once it was decided divorce was going to knock her traditional values to the wayside, Tre waded into the dating pool. Now that Teresa is boo’d up with Louie Ruelas, she wants folks to know she’s in no rush – so don’t go ordering those monogrammed tea towels just yet.
The Real Housewives shows are known for many things. They love feuding over petty matters. Glam squads have become a staple. Many of them seem to purposely spit out one-liners with the hope of slapping their own quotes on a t-shirt or novelty coffee mug. Plenty of Real Housewives have tried (and failed) at singing careers.
Of course, almost all of them have become social media influencers, schilling laxative teas, subscription boxes, and fast fashion products on Instagram. And, then there are the many business attempts. We have heard about many businesses that have never actually come to fruition, like Sonja Morgan’s highly-hyped-up toaster oven or Sheree Whitfield’s She by Sheree clothing line. Then, there are the businesses that crumbled pretty quickly, like Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga’s Italian restaurant.
Real Housewives viewers have seen the demise of many marriages play out on screen. Ramona Singer’s ex-husband Mario Singer cheated on her. There was some cheating in Luann de Lesseps‘ marriages… both of them.
Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice couldn’t get past their legal issues and cheating allegations. Now, there’s apparently a new cheating scandal brewing with one of the other Real Housewives husbands.
