I really didn’t think it would come to this, but I miss Real Housewives of New Jersey. Don’t get me wrong, I like the franchise just fine. But this past season was a big nothing burger for me. Watching Danielle Staub try to claw her way back to relevance just doesn’t do it for me.
That said, I’m excited to see what the ladies are cooking up for the upcoming season. They’ve been filming and there might even be a new cast member. One person I’m excited to see back is Jackie Goldschneider. I know what you’re going to say – she’s boring. But I beg to differ. I think Jackie brings a realness to the show. And anyone who isn’t afraid of OG and untouchable housewife Teresa Giudice is ok in my book.
Other than Jennifer Aydin offending Melissa Gorga and
her cronies Margaret Josephs and Jackie Goldscnheider constantly, the most recent Real Housewives of New Jersey cast gets along pretty well. Without Danielle Staub’s hair-pulling antics, we are left with a pretty harmonious cast… which makes for boring TV.
They have to be adding someone else to the group, right? Nothing has been officially confirmed, but there are rumors floating around on social media along with some photo evidence.
All roads lead to Denise Richards these days. Even Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga has chimed in on Denise’s drama with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast.
Denise has caught some flack for not showing up to events and leaving early, and, apparently, Melissa’s perspective is similar to the RHOBH ladies’.
Welcome to my press conference with absolutely zero press. I’m here to announce a few things, and don’t worry, none are printed on the back of my t-shirt. First of all, after a Coronavirus delay, our Real Housewives of Potomac ladies are set to come back for Season 5 the first week of August. Taglines are here people! I’m about to build an entire champagne room to celebrate. This franchise is an absolute gift. If you’ve been sleeping on this one, it’s time for a binge. Trust me.
This season viewers will be welcoming Dr. Wendy Osefo to the cast. Apparently Bravo thought she would bring a nice work ethic due to the fact that she’s a political commentator and professor. I’m looking forward to watching her mix it up with either Candiace Dillard or Monique Samuels. You can’t stay neutral on these two! Both women have filed second degree assault charges on the other. These claims were made after a dinner party during the filming. All for this new season! Apparently, the charges were dropped. And what’s the next thing you do after being dismissed from a crime? Drop a rap song! Of course!
A lot of people would be better off not being on reality TV. Jana Kramer is one of them. For the readers scratching their heads, Jana was a top 4 finalist on Season 23 of Dancing with the Stars. She also ruined the later seasons of One Tree Hill by playing an annoying character desperate to ruin Brook Davis’ relationship with Julien. Today, she co-hosts the podcast, “Whine Down,” with cheating husband, Michael Caussin. She’s also a country singer, so triple threat!
Jana tends to over-share on social media. In theory, this should make her a fantastic Housewife. Michael, an ex-NFL player, is Jana’s third husband. In addition to the podcast, they share two young children. The couple married in 2015 and separated in 2016 because of Michael’s “massive sex addition.” They renewed their vows in 2017. But a minute later Jana was airing their dirty laundry on the podcast and blaming hot nannies for breaking up marriages. Obviously, the best way for Jana and Michael to slow down this rollercoaster is to audition for a Bravo reality show.
The coronavirus pandemic disrupted life in very visible ways. Schools were closed, non-essential employees worked from home, and Netflix became a whole lot more popular. What was not apparent at first was how the lockdown would affect our guilty pleasure of watching reality TV. Specifically, of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Cutting filming and production will create a lag time between the most recent season and the next.
Back in March, filming for Season 11 was cut short amid fears for the health of cast and crew. At that point, RHONJ was only a few episodes in before production was shut down. The Garden State has seemingly gained control of the coronavirus. As a result, the network has released a tentative timeline to resume filming.
Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice have been through hell and back. Since the couple’s debut on Real Housewives of New Jersey they have had major ups and downs. From losing their parents and having their family fall apart.
We have seen the couple go head to head with Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga many times throughout the years. The longtime couple has never backed down from a fight, no matter who it is with. Joe Giudice is now taking his old moves that he previously reserved for his brother-in-law and moving them into the boxing ring!
It has been a difficult few years for the Giudice/Gorga family, to say the least. Earlier this month, Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga shared the heartbreaking news that their father Giacinto Gorga passed away. “Nonno,” as he was referred to by his family, was a beloved character by his grandchildren and RHONJ fans alike.
Since Nonno’s passing on April 3rd, Teresa and Joe have both been sharing family photos on their respective Instagram accounts. Their kids have posted sweet messages and tributes to their grandfather. Joe Giudice also posted some touching tributes to his father-in-law. Now, Melissa Gorga is speaking out on how the family is coping with their loss.
