It has been about 80 years since the last season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. If you’ve been wondering what most of the cast has been up to during the RHONJ hiatus, you can ask any local New Jersey plastic surgeon. We might need name tags for the first few eps, until we figure out who everyone is.
The Season 11 trailer has dropped and it is full of drama… intrigue… and… so much hairspray. Thankfully Teresa “I’m Single And It Will Be Painfully Obvious” Giudice still has that gentle, lilting voice that could put you to sleep like a lullaby. Melissa Gorga will return to defend her marriage, so nothing new there. Jennifer Aydin comes back, committed to her lip liner and tequila. Will this be the year Delores Catania offers more content than agreeing with Teresa? It’s time to find out.
I cannot wait for Season 11 of Real Housewives of New Jersey to return on February 17. Just like the rest of us, the RHONJ cast has been dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. Of course, some cast members have been behaving more responsibly than others.
In April, Jennifer Aydin announced that she had coronavirus. She later donated 5,000 masks to hospitals in New Jersey and New York. Good for you, Jennifer!
It’s been a little under a year since Season 10 of Real Housewives of New Jersey wrapped their final reunion episode. When we left the women, there were talks about the now infamous pony-tail pull between Danielle Staub and Margaret Josephs. The incident sent ripples through the group, and essentially left a huge question mark for Marge and Teresa Giudice’s friendship.
The show reportedly began filming in July. The entire cast was said to be returning. In the meantime, Danielle kept the crazy coming with her accusations against Andy Cohen of all people. She also accused her long-time friend Teresa of living in a trailer during RHONJ filming. I’m guessing that means The Marge and Tre have buried their hatchet? Tre has never been great at keeping a middle ground. And the powerhouse in pigtails still isn’t over Danielle’s chaos, going so far as to call her a “virus”.
Season 10 of Real Housewives of New Jersey was Danielle Staub’s last stand, and she chose to go out with a bang. At a shopping event, after bickering with Margaret Josephs, Danielle gave Margaret’s ponytail a vicious pull. It was horrifying. None of the other RHONJ stars could understand why Teresa Giudice sided with Danielle.
Near the end of the season, Danielle revealed to Melissa Gorga that Teresa encouraged her to pull Margaret’s hair, saying “Do it. Do it.” It was a real shocker to find out that Teresa cheered on the attack. Of course, Teresa was already angry at Margaret for jokes about Teresa cheating with young guys.
Real Housewives of New Jersey “OG” Teresa Giudice is living her best life right now. She split from long-time husband Joe Giudice after his pesky deportation to Italy. Before that, Teresa stood by her man through infidelity rumors and a stint
in jail at camp.
Teresa and Joe’s divorce was mostly completed in September, but the RHONJ stars are waiting for a court date to finalize the paperwork. Now Teresa has a new man, and she made it Instagram official.
Erika Jayne did not receive a Christmas miracle. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been navigating her biggest role to date. She is currently miles ahead in the race for ALLEGEDLY taking part in the most disturbing scandal any of the Housewives shows have seen. You’re welcome, Teresa Giudice.
Erika filed for divorce from Tom Girardi and kicked off a landslide of allegations against the couple. Tom and Erika are accused of embezzling funds from former clients in an extremely vulnerable position and now Erika is accused of trying to weasel her way out of it. In an effort to gain sympathy for ALLEGEDLY stealing money from plane crash victims, Erika decided to publish some receipts regarding her very troubled husband. After posting (and deleting) screen shots of text messages between Big Tommy and his supposed mistress, Erika is finding out that doxxing a judge didn’t get her very far in the court of public opinion.
When Caroline Manzo left Real Housewives of New Jersey, she and Teresa Giudice were not on good terms. They’ve been publicly shading each other ever since.
However, they came together for a 2020 Super Bowl commercial, which had a million other people in it, but it was still exciting to see them back on screen together.
Other than bringing out the green-eyed monster in Teresa Giudice, what does Melissa Gorga bring to Real Housewives of New Jersey? Oh, right, a fake baby storyline, a fake sister storyline, a fake restaurant, and is there anything else I’m forgetting? Oh, yeah, the constant Envy shout outs and that time she advocated for marital rape.
Well, she does bring Joe Gorga’s comedic relief (and occasionally offensive remarks), but what storyline does she actually have? That’s what her former RHONJ nemesis Jacqueline Laurita wants to know.
