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?
Real Housewives of New Jersey newbie Jennifer Aydin wasted no time creating drama on the show. There was her first ever girls’ trip to Oklahoma, where she bragged about her amazing house and all its amazing bathrooms. She also delighted in insulting Margaret Josephs’ friend, and long-suffering hostess, Polly.
Jennifer had no qualms about going on a second girls’ trip, much to conservative husband Bill Aydin’s dismay. The Cabo trip will go down as being the most infamous in RHONJ history. Margaret likened Jennifer’s plump and pouty lips to “a monkey’s a**hole.” At dinner one night, Margaret threw wine at Danielle Staub after Danielle cackled about how Margaret’s children are not in her life. Danielle flung a glass at Margaret, hitting Melissa Gorga’s leg. Finally, when Melissa accused Jennifer of throwing the glass, Jennifer smashed a glass on the table and brandished it at Melissa.
Even though Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 is still airing new episodes, the fans are already looking ahead to Season 10. It’s pretty much a given that Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, and Dolores Catania will get asked back for another season. But what about the two new Housewives? Will Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Aydin return for Season 10? Let’s not even address Danielle Staub’s situation. She isn’t even a full-time cast member.
Recently, rumors swirled on Twitter about Jackie’s status on the show. Some tweeters claimed that Jackie got fired. I find it tough to believe that anyone got fired from the show. Season 9 is the best RHONJ season in years. Why would they switch it up by firing one of the full-time cast members? Not only that, but Jackie is the only one who is completely comfortable calling out Teresa
for camera time on her hypocrisies. That warrants a callback, right?
Fans of Real Housewives of New Jersey have been wondering why Teresa Giudice was hell-bent on taking Danielle Staub’s side all season. Danielle was a bridezilla who tortured her entire bridal party, which included co-stars Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, and Teresa. I am still trying to cleanse my mind from the images of Danielle and the male strippers from her bachelorette party.
During a tequila-soaked girls’ trip to Cabo, Danielle fought with Margaret. She even stated that Margaret isn’t in touch with her children and not allowed to see her grandchildren because she is an awful person. Remember how talking about kids isn’t allowed on RHONJ? Margaret tossed a glass of wine at Danielle, which resulted in a meltdown of epic proportions, and even more broken wine glasses. (I see you, Jennifer Aydin!) Even more surprising than this rumble in Cabo? Teresa backing Danielle…again.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey Cabo trip was everything I wanted and more. There was high humidity and high drama. Margaret Josephs told Jennifer Aydin that her lip liner reminded her of “a monkey’s asshole.” Then, she upped the ante by declaring that Jennifer’s husband sleeps in the pool house and in his girlfriend’s bed. As the viewers know, she took this back immediately, but Jennifer’s reaction gave us some great drama.
Later, Danielle Staub had the nerve to tell Margaret that her kids don’t want to be around her. That’s something Marty Caffrey’s kids could relate to, Danielle. Then, The Marge retaliated by picking up Dolores Catania’s glass of red wine and dumping it on her. Somehow, this all lead to Jennifer smashing a glass and coming at Melissa Gorga with a makeshift shank. So much for this being a fun, booze-filled trip after months of Teresa Giudice’s fitness competition dieting.
Last season on Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dolores Catania referred to Danielle Staub as a “crazy scumbag.” She tried to warn the whole cast about the OG Housewife and her ways. However, no one was buying what she was selling. Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Margaret Josephs just loved Danielle. They were even bridesmaids in her wedding.
And we all saw how that went. Danielle turned into an incomparable bridezilla. Thankfully, she owned up to her antics and apologized, but was it too little too late? After the wedding, Danielle told Teresa and Melissa that Margaret told her not to trust them. Deja vu much? This very much mirrors the controversy with Dolores and Teresa last season. The common thread? These were both Danielle-instigated issues.
