Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Seeing Red

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.

Teresa Giudice Calls Jackie “White Trash” And A Stalker In Reunion Trailer

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? 

Margaret Josephs pushes Marty Caffrey in the pool RHONJ

After a season full of glass smashing, wine throwing, and alliance shifting, Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 ends tonight. All of the ladies get together for a “red-themed” party for Jennifer Aydin’s sixteenth wedding anniversary. Who has a party for a sixteenth wedding anniversary?

Before the party, everyone cannot keep Danielle Staub’s name out of their mouths. And just think about this: she’s not even a full-time cast member. Nevertheless, they (pretty much) all want her off the show. Clearly. No one understands why Teresa Giudice is sloyal to Danielle. Oh right, she needs a soldier sidekick friend by her side.

RHONJ-Jennifer-Aydin Real Housewives of New Jersey

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.

RHONJ-Jackie-Goldschneider

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?

Teresa Giudice

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.

Margaret Josephs Still Working To Give Brave Kids Brave Gowns

When you hear the word “gown”, one might be compelled to shout “JOVANI!” in a room full of people. However, while Brave Gowns definitely deserves a shout out, you will not find them at New York Fashion Week. Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Margaret Josephs is on a mission to make the lives of sick children a tad more bearable. After staying on a pediatric oncology floor for a medical procedure, Margaret was moved to create hero-inspired hospital gowns for kids.

During the last episode, we saw the result of her hard work with an epic fundraiser. The food was amazing, people got along (for once), but most importantly we heard from children who would wear Brave Gowns. I have to say, there wasn’t a dry eye in the venue or on my couch. What is the status of this project? Recently. Margaret shared some updates with her fans.

RHONJ-Dolores-Catania

Love comes and goes on Season 9 of Real Housewives of New Jersey as fast as exits on the New Jersey Turnpike.  Case in point,  Danielle Staub’s barefoot wedding to Marty Caffrey resulted in a marriage that lasted for a New Jersey minute. Is that a thing?

In contrast, there’s Dolores Catania. She has managed to have a longlasting relationship with her ex-husband of all people. However, they insist it’s platonic. Last season, she welcomed her ex-husband/father of two Frank Catania back home. As a result, viewers, along with cast members, have wondered if the exes are actually BFF’s with benefits ever since. Come on, the chemistry between them is just so strong! Right?
