I am loving Real Housewives of New Jersey this season. Of course, there is still bad blood between Melissa Gorga and Jennifer Aydin. Last season, Jennifer indulged her tequila monster and tossed a set of silverware at Melissa during a luncheon in the Hamptons.
During the Season 11 RHONJ premiere, newbie Michelle Pais dropped a bomb on Jennifer. She told her that Joe Gorga, Melissa’s husband, owed her husband “tens of thousands of dollars.” Michelle’s husband, Jonathan Steingraber, spoke at Joe’s “Growing with Gorga” event, but supposedly wasn’t paid.
Even though Joe Giudice hasn’t appeared (aside from on Teresa Giudice’s phone screen) on the Real Housewives of New Jersey since going to jail and getting deported, he stays central to the drama. Tre and Juicy might have called it quits after their stints “at camp,” but Joe is being more faithful to his ex than he ever was during their marriage. Particularly, Joe has taken any chance he could get to bash Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga in the press, so it’s messy as ever.
The fight came to a head during last week’s episode when Melissa and Joe called out Tre for always taking her ex’s side. Joey G. says he puts the blame on Joe Giudice for his mother’s early death. In case you forgot, their mother, Antonia Gorga, died on March 4, 2017. And then in April 2020 “Nonno” Giacinto Gorga passed away. Joe and Teresa have both said that’s far from the truth, which is a bit of a surprise, considering we know that Teresa did blame her ex for making her miss out on precious time with her parents.
A storm has landed over the Jersey Shore, and The Real Housewives of New Jersey might never be the same. Forget the idea of a relaxing vacation on the beach. That’s not even close to what’s happening on this trip. Teresa Giudice & Jackie Goldschneider are at war. Let’s make that clear right away. There is no denying the toxicity of this feud. It’s causing everyone to dredge up past emotions and take fights to the next level.
EVERYONE is involved in this feud in some capacity. Margaret Josephs has been blindsided by the news that Joe Benigno talked about the rumor at guy’s night. By revealing he heard the rumor too, it breathes life into the venom Teresa’s been spewing. If that wasn’t bad enough, the Gorga family is at it again. Joe Gorga & Melissa Gorga don’t understand why Teresa hasn’t defended them against Joe Giudice. HERE WE GO AGAIN!
The feud between Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider on this season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey has gone on far too long. Tre started it all when she spread a rumor that Evan Goldschneider cheats on his wife at the gym. Jackie, for some reason, tried using LOGIC on Teresa and made the worst analogy ever that involved a rumor that Gia Giudice snorts cocaine at parties. As expected, Teresa exploded because family is #thickasthieves around here.
Since the first episode, this fight has been brought up time and time again this season. Jackie skipped the first cast trip because of the feud and hosted a second birthday party for Evan since Teresa “ruined” the first one with the rumors. And even though they haven’t filmed together since the blowup, the two have spent the majority of their screentime bashing one another. And, of course, the fight has made its way to social media.
Season 11 of Real Housewives of New Jersey is on fire. Jackie Goldschneider threw a birthday party for her husband, Evan Goldschneider. While at the party, RHONJ co-star Teresa Giudice shared the rumor that Evan was cheating. Happy Birthday, Evan!
Teresa and Jackie met to discuss the rumor. When Teresa refused to reveal her source, Jackie tossed out an analogy about Teresa’s daughter, Gia Giudice. Jackie said that she heard that Gia snorts cocaine in the bathroom at parties. What a terrible analogy.
After watching the absolute chaos that ensued from Teresa Giudice’s rumor mill antics, Jennifer Aydin took a different approach with some delicate info in a recent episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey. Jennifer came directly to Melissa Gorga with some gossip she’d heard about her husband, Joe Gorga. She relayed a message from Michelle Pais, a real estate guru. Michelle claimed that Joe owed her husband, John Steingraber, “tens of thousands of dollars.” Of course, Melissa called her hubby ASAP. He told her none of it was true. Joe claimed he and John never had a contract when they had previously worked together at a public speaking event.
When the two couples came face to face in last week’s pool party episode, Joe took John aside pretty quick. The two seemed to hash it out within minutes. I was hoping for more. They parted ways as John said something to the effect of “now let my wife sell your sister’s house” to Joe. From there, viewers spent the rest of the episode watching Jennifer get wasted.
If anyone is bringing it this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s Jennifer Aydin. Her drunken antics and family drama has been a welcome relief from the Teresa Giudice/Jackie Goldschneider feud that’s dragged out far too long.
And of course, Jen‘s never afraid to push some buttons, especially when it comes to Melissa Gorga. Let’s take a second to remember when she said Melissa was too self-absorbed to have a kid, despite being a mother of three already. Iconic.
Real Housewives of New Jersey has had approximately one story line all season. We’re finally getting into this Michelle Pais and Joe Gorga drama, and just in time. So far the entire season has centered around the cheating rumor Teresa Giudice spread all over Evan Goldschneider’s birthday party. The worst part? Having to watch Jackie Goldschneider throw him an entirely new party to erase the memory of the party she didn’t even know was sabotaged. She used this completely unnecessary do-over to
make tons of happy new memories relive Tre ruining her night over and over and over again. Joyous!
It’s hard to pick a side between Teresa’s inability to understand what she did wrong and Jackie’s insatiable need to keep repeating it. So difficult that Tre’s new pal Jennifer Aydin has been doing her best to stay neutral about the entire topic. She even gave Teresa a light call out over dinner. Jennifer also said Teresa is beating the topic “with a dead horse” in her confessional. Can’t wait to see that covered in the reunion.
