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-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.

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?

Jennifer on embracing the “monkey’s asshole” comment and her banter with Margaret

After months of dieting and not drinking for her fitness competition, Teresa Giudice just wanted to celebrate her accomplishments with some fun in Mexico. Of course, the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast couldn’t wait to leave their husbands and kids behind for a  vacation.

Before the trip, Jennifer Aydin mentioned to Teresa that her brother was getting married to a woman he didn’t know. OK, he knew her for a couple weeks, but still! At Dolores Catania’s fundraiser, Margaret Josephs referred to Jennifer’s future sister-in-law as a “mail-order bride.” Oh boy. In true RHONJ form, that got back to Jennifer and she was not happy about it. At all!

Real Housewives of New Jersey Cabo Trip

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.
