Teresa Giudice, the Garden State’s most famous housewife, will be back for season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Bravo announced Monday. The show’s return will also include Melissa Gorga and RHONJ veteran Jacqueline Laurita.
Danielle Staub may have left The Real Housewives of New Jersey back in 2010, but she has continued to deal with a series of publicized dramatic events. Staub has blamed her two season-run on the Bravo series for bringing turmoil into her life, and revealed via Twitter on Thursday that she plans to write a tell-all book about how the reality show has affected her and her family.
Teresa Giudice gets out of prison on December 23, 2015. That means her time is nearly over, and now that we’ve finished the final hour of Teresa Checks In, our time is done, too. Lessons have been learned. (Maybe?) The family has gotten stronger.
What is the point of prison: to punish or to reform?
For a Housewife to really earn her keep, she has to make viewers simultaneously hate her, pity her, and (kind of) want to be her. It requires a careful balance of schadenfreude and envy. If you envy her wealth too much, chances are she’s not blowing enough of her money on tiny-dog jewelry, which means she’s probably too classy to be worthy of your pity. If you pity her too much, there’s no joy in hating her.
Look who’s pokey pen pals?
Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen tells EW that he remains in touch with Teresa Giudice, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star who was sentenced to 15 months in prison after she and her husband Joe pleaded guilty to charges of bank, mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud.
Though tonight’s episode mainly dealt with the tumultuous end of the ladies’ Florida vacation, it would be a disservice to not at least acknowledge here the news that came out Thursday regarding Teresa and Joe’s sentencing.
In the wilds of Florida, alligators are known to be very protective of their territory and prefer prey they can swallow whole. In the wilds of New Jersey (a decidedly different type of swamp), husbands can behave in a similar way. But instead of a quick kill when dealing with the enemy, things are drawn out for weeks, months, sometimes even years. For gators, this is due to their slow metabolism. For Jersey men, this is due to their ego.
