I cannot believe we’re already to the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion! Last night’s first installment of the ladies’ sit down with Andy Cohen was reality gold…and pewter and bronze and silver. Their gowns were like a medal ceremony in the Envy by Melissa Gorga Olympics. Also, whoever told Jackie Goldscheider that the attire was cleavage optional is clearly getting the last laugh. But at least Jackie’s least likely to have a wardrobe malfunction when being screamed at by the first eight seasons’ Teresa Giudice who throws
tables punches instead of rolling with them. Shockingly, Jennifer Aydin has her girls under wraps as well, although she does arrive in a Rocky-style blinged-out boxing robe. Of course, she does.
Andy welcomes the newbies before questioning Teresa about Joe Giudice’s impending deportation. Teresa is clearly upset, but they table the discussion for later in the reunion. He continues schmoozing the RHONJ cast before complimenting Margaret Josephs’ facelift. He even gets Dolores Catania to admit to butt implants with her own fat. Jackie shares she had a tummy tuck after giving birth to two sets of twins. Margaret also reveals that she and husband Joe Beningo shower together every morning.
No one is at all surprised by the seating arrangement at the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 Reunion. Teresa Giudice is sitting with
her soldiers Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin. On the opposite couch, Margaret Josephs is joined by Melissa Gorga and Jackie Goldschneider, duh.
However, Melissa had to be
jealous at least a little surprised that Margaret got the seat next to Andy Cohen. Then again, Melissa doesn’t have as many battles to fight this season. Margaret had it out with Jennifer, Teresa, and Danielle Staub, who will not appear on Part 1. Meanwhile, Melissa promoted her own store and took a genetic test to match with a “sister” that does not actually exist may or may not exist.
Margaret Josephs instantly resonated with viewers during her first season on Real Housewives of New Jersey. The fans weren’t the only people that she won over. Margaret formed a very close friendship with Danielle Staub.
They really had each other’s backs, but that’s not the case these days. Margaret did what she could to be the bridesmaid and friend. She put up with Danielle’s bridezilla demands and came through on all of her requests. However, nothing was good enough for Danielle and her attitude just kept getting worse. Sadly enough, there was so much drama surrounding a wedding for a couple that broke up shortly after they got married.
Is Real Housewives of New Jersey experiencing a case of déjà vu? So far in Season 9, fans have once again witnessed family tension explode between Melissa Gorga, her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, and her husband (and Teresa’s brother) Joe Gorga. People- can’t we all just get along? Obviously not, or it would be a boring show.
The family pulled together and buried old grievances when Teresa served her 11-month prison sentence for fraud. Now her husband, Joe Giudice, is serving his prison sentence and faces deportation to Italy when he is released in March of 2019.
For the 9525025252524638th time, Real Housewives of New Jersey has reverted to the Teresa Giudice vs. Melissa Gorga Show. This means that everyone is picking sides, including the new Housewives.
Jackie Goldschneider has come off the bench for #TeamMelissa. Meanwhile, Jennifer Aydin is firmly on Teresa’s side. Interestingly enough, they both made their Watch What Happens Live debuts during yesterday’s episode.
Both Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Aydin are making an impact on Real Housewives of New Jersey. The rookie Housewives are far from bashful. Obviously, Jennifer is an extremely polarizing character. Starting with the positive, Jennifer gives us a lot to talk about. Then again, the incessant bragging got old. Very quickly.
Next episode, it looks like Jackie earns her stripes and calls out the OG herself, Teresa Giudice. Teresa claims that Melissa Gorga can “control” her husband. Jackie points out Teresa’s blatant hypocrisy. She went to jail (in part) thanks to her own husband. Yes, I know that Teresa was responsible for her own actions blah blah blah. Nevertheless, she could not “control” her husband, who is currently rocking an orange jumpsuit. Pot, meet kettle.
All eyes are on Lisa Vanderpump these days. If you’re searching for her, don’t look anywhere near the Beverly Hills Housewives. She’s not hanging out with any of them these days, but she does spend time with some beloved animals. Recently, she shared a photo of herself holding a giant bunny.
Flipping Out cast member Jenni Pulos posted a photo of herself and her new puppy named Jax. She did not specify if she named him after Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor, but that’s the first “Jax” that popped up in my mind.
Real Housewives of New Jersey has reverted back to Giudice vs. Gorga era. After two seasons of peace, Teresa Giudice is at odds with her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga. The three of them argued every single episode this season. To be fair, we are only four episodes in. That had to be a tough time for the family. I imagine it’s also difficult to watch back.
I don’t blame Teresa for escaping the show (and social media critics) with a family vacation. Teresa and her daughters got away from the New Jersey cold with an escape to Turks and Caicos.
