The Real Housewives of New Jersey

It is finally back, the long awaited return of Real Housewives of New Jersey and Teresa Guidice.  Time has flown by since that infamous season 6 reunion scene where Teresa basically says her goodbyes to the RHONJ viewers before embarking on her new adventure, into prison.  This was one of those twists that I didn’t expect to see on a reality TV show I watched.  At times I felt like it was glamorising the prison sentencing but at other times I think maybe this was done to protect Teresa.  It’s safe to say that someone wanted to ensure Teresa had a safety net after prison.

So now into its 7th season it kicks off on the run up to Christmas with everyone preparing and discussing the return of Teresa.  She was sentenced to 15 months in prison but released after 11 for good behaviour.  Underneath all of the makeup and drama it is clear that Teresa will do anything for her girls.  As the money from her business has dried up, Teresa needs to do what she can to bring it back.  Exclusive photos for magazines, a tell all book and of course RHONJ.  She has to hustle no more than ever but this concerns me.  Will the storylines of drama with the other girls be more superficial than before? More on that to follow.

I won’t lie, I shed a tear when Teresa hugged her little girlies when she returned home. It is filmed like she has just walked in the door after 11 months to her loving family…and a film crew.  Fingers crossed this wasn’t the actual reunion.

The cynic in me wasn’t sure if Joe and Teresa would make it through her prison sentence.  Yes she should have read what she was signing but she trusted her husband so the fault lies heavily with him.  But they are still together, at the moment, as he services his 41 month prison sentence.

Onto the other ladies.  I have to admit I was very glad that Amber and the twins were not coming back this season! Something didn’t click, I think I found them too fake sadly.  The new girls, Dolores and Siggy, seem like a wild and funny pair.  Siggy in the first episode braves the cameras post face lift. She is ballsy!

Back again this year is Jacqueline with her lovely family. Who’s heart doesn’t melt when they see little Nicholas?! He is incredible. Seeing him develop despite autism brings a humble side to the narcissistic world of the housewives. Jac and Chris have been open from the season premiere about their financial situation after a bad business decision.  This also concerns me that the drama will be false to get air time and then turn bring in the cash. I hope I am wrong!

The Gorga’s are back of course and the tables have turned. Melissa has bought a shop and is making it into a boutique. Not sure how this will pan out as she should be at home cooking for her husband of course! Silly Joey.

So I am pretty excited to see how this season pans out as I am a huge fan. Let me know how you feel about this season in the comments.  I am looking forward to posting more Housewives related posts 🙂

Thanks for reading,

Kirsty 🙂 xx

  1. This is the only show of the Real Housewives franchise that I don’t get excited about. Well, this one and the Miami Housewives….I never did like that one!
    With the NJ women, it just feels forced, every lunch, dinner, and random meetings feels so un-organic. Maybe that’s because everything Theresa does has to be scheduled and approved in advance. I know everything they do is technically scheduled but it doesn’t usually come across that way. It just doesn’t flow the way the other shows do.

    1. I completely agree with you there. There is something about it I absolutely love but at others times I cringe at how forced everything is. This season for me is to see how they try to spin the T prison sentence into a good thing when that should not be happening.
      I’ve never been able to watch Miami. Which is your favourite?

      1. I really favorite the girls from NY, but that may have something to do with the fact that I’m from NY too!

        I just watched the newest episode and had to ask myself if I would be as angry as Lu is over the other women talking about their previous relationship with Tom. The answer is yes! I can’t imagine being so happy and in love and then having to hear from all my friends who also dated him too! Then again, I wouldn’t date man a friend of mine was seeing, definitely not right after or during!
        What do you think? Most of this drama for the show or do you think she’s really in love?

      2. I agree, it would make me pretty annoyed as it’s then going to be aired on television for everyone to see. It may be a lot of drama for show as what other storyline does she have? It’s going to be interesting how this plays out with the information B has and the photos.
        How do you feel about Jules?

      3. Jules…I didn’t like her at first but she’s grown on me. But I’ve heard rumors she won’t be back for a second season, have you heard the same? What are your thoughts?
