I love the husbands on Real Housewives of New Jersey. This season, what happened at guys’ night didn’t stay at guys’ night, which means more drama for RHONJ viewers! When the guys met for poker, Margaret Josephs’ husband, Joe Benigno, admitted that he had also heard that Evan Goldschneider was cheating.
Unfortunately, Bill Aydin carried the news back to his wife, Jennifer Aydin. And on the ride to the Jersey Shore, Jennifer shared it with Dolores Catania, her ex-husband, Frank Catania, and Teresa Giudice.
I love a good mystery and when all else fails, this one will do. Recently Andy Cohen announced a Watch What Happens Live special featuring the children of Bravolebrities. “Children” meaning 18 years old and over… No minors will be a part of this program, but that doesn’t stop parents from subjecting their youngsters to scorn and humiliation over the course of 13 episodes. The line up includes various spawn representing most of the Real Housewives franchises.
Not every adult kid could participate. Some are in college, some have families in far away places, and some weren’t asked to join in on the fun. Rumors began swirling that two pissed off Housewives called Daddy with a bone to pick because their child wasn’t tapped. The Bravo detective squad, arguably more lethal than the CIA, began sleuthing in attempts to figure out which indignant women complained. According to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Rinna, we can eliminate her from the list. But we all know Lisa has memory problems, so she might not even remember making the call…
While Margaret Josephs is past her days of feuding with Danielle Staub and throwing her ex-husband in the pool on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, she has a new enemy in town. This season, Jennifer Aydin and the Marge have been going at it, throwing low-blows back and forth at each other. Jennifer is a ride-or-die to Teresa Giudice, while Margaret tries to hold Tre accountable. The two have never really gotten along, but this season is a whole new level.
And apparently, Jennifer Aydin isn’t the only Jen that Marge has some opinions about. On a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Marge gave her feelings about the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. And particularly, what she thinks about Jen Shah’s recent arrest for her alleged involvement in a telemarketing scheme that targetted the elderly. She and her assistant Stuart Smith are facing federal fraud and money laundering charges, which hold a 30-year maximum prison sentence.
This week Andy Cohen gifted fans with news of a “Bravo Kids” special that will be featured on an episode of Watch What Happens Live. The special includes Gia Giudice, Frankie Catania, Albie Manzo and Chris Manzo from Real Housewives of New Jersey, Brielle Biermann, Riley Burruss, and Kairo Whitfield (THANK YOU) from Real Housewives of Atlanta, Avery Singer and Victoria de Lesseps from Real Housewives of New York City, and of course OG kids Briana Culberson and Shane Keough (YES) from Real Housewives of Orange County.
The “kids” featured in this special all grew up on TV and probably had zero say in showing their awkward years on camera for millions of people. So, this could be awesome! While the show features our favorite Bravo kids, there are some noticeable names missing. Yolanda Hadid’s daughters, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid are probably too busy being supermodels to show up on WWHL. But what about Kyle Richards’ daughters? Or Lisa Rinna’s? Nene Leakes’ kids? Or Jill Zarin’s daughter? Something tells me they’re dying to be included – and Andy has hinted as much without naming names.
This season of the Real Housewives Of New Jersey has introduced us to a significantly hornier and finally single Teresa Giudice. While the latest mid-season trailer shows that her new boo Luis Ruelas is making his RHONJ debut soon, Tre’s still single on the show. She’s up-front about wanting her “peach kissed,” is drinking pineapple juice by the gallon (to Joe Gorga’s horror) and obviously flirting with pool boy Tony Delorenzo whenever she can.
While Luis is apparently Tre’s “soulmate,” with Juicy Joe Giudice and their four dorters’ sign of approval, there’s undeniable chemistry between Tre and the hot pool boy. He’s old-school Italian, which we know didn’t go well for Tre last time, so maybe it’s better that they didn’t get together. Even though I ship it real hard. Melissa Gorga says he’s into younger women anyways, so the ship has sailed.
Sutton Stracke was a polarizing figure last season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She was only a Friend of the Housewives for Season 10, but she still managed to stir up plenty of drama. Sutton is wealthy and informed everyone that she only wears couture. Sutton was appalled that Kyle Richards didn’t have place cards at her dinner party. During a game of first impressions, Sutton told pregnant RHOBH co-star Teddi Mellencamp that she thought she would be “boring.”
Sutton’s antics even caused Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jackie Goldschneider to call her “a little too uppity.” Sutton insisted that she was “not a mean girl.” She also said, “Can I be a little snobby? Yes. But is that my whole personality? No.”
You can’t get blood from a stone, but you can surely squeeze Bravo stunts for all they are worth. First we hear a Real Housewives All Stars project is in the works and now we have… Children of the Bravolebrities. If you aren’t staying awake at night wondering what haute couture Brooks Marks will release next, then who are you? Bravo has never ventured into these waters before, but it’s not a half bad idea. Why not hear from the people who never signed up to be on television?
While most of Bravo’s content stems from adults, often times the kids are the most level-headed. I’m looking at you, Gia Giudice. Some start out as toddlers and literally grow up before our eyes, venturing out into the real world and starting families of their own. They also have their fair share of challenges from cameras following them throughout their awkward years. Now Andy Cohen is giving fans the opportunity to catch up with some of the Bravo spawn and he has announced the line up. Spoiler alert, Milania Giudice got the shaft, but perhaps, that’s because she’s not 18 yet.
Even though he was deported to his native Italy, Joe Giudice’s shadow still looms large on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Joe served time in prison for federal fraud charges, as did his now ex-wife, Teresa Giudice. After he was deported, the couple decided to split up.
RHONJ viewers know that Joe cheated on his wife, and Teresa’s bestie Dolores Catania alleged that Joe was a serial cheater. In a recent episode of RHONJ, Teresa revealed that her divorce from Joe was final, and that he walked away with nothing. He was horrible to Teresa and got exactly what he deserved. Now Joe is moving on with his life, keeping busy selling sex toys and dating his girlfriend, Daniela Fittipaldi.
