I hope Teresa Giudice has been practicing her yoga stretches. Something tells me she’s going to have to be pretty limber to maneuver around any drama this season. The gorgeous gals of the Garden State are back to stir the pot…of sauce…for the ninth season of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey. I’ve already shattered three glasses in preparation of what looks to be a juicy season.
From the two minute sneak peek, it looks like things have changed over in Jersey. It’s official, Siggy Flicker did not return for another season but has been replaced with two new ladies. To be fair, Siggy brought enough personality for two so the trade is pretty even. Leaping into their first season as housewives are Jacqueline Goldschneider, a former real estate attorney, and Jennifer Aydin, a home maker married to a plastic surgeon. It seems like the newbies waste no time kicking up drama as Jacqueline goes toe to toe with Teresa over Joe Giudice’s legal woes. Jennifer takes aim at returning housewife, Margaret Josephs, for the salacious circumstances surrounding how Margaret met her husband.
The more things change, the more things stay the same. The aforementioned Margaret Josephs and Teresa Giudice return alongside veteran housewives Melissa Gorga and Dolores Catania. Returning with the “friend” status is Danielle Staub, whose short lived marriage will play out this season as well. While this is a change from last season, it’s technically where these two started so we are going to umbrella this next bit of info under “things that haven’t changed.” Teresa and Melissa are fighting again. For nearly four seasons the sisters-in-law were at each other’s throats over deep seeded family issues. Once Teresa was released from her 11 month stint in prison, however, it seemed like the two had finally mended their relationship. Old habits die hard in Jersey though as the trailer shows Melissa charging Teresa while feuding from across the dinner table. All Melissa can say for herself is “we love hard. We fight hard. We go hard.”
The trip of the season this time will be in Turkey but it’s too soon to see how much drama occurs while overseas. Other tidbits worth mentioning are Dolores’ plot line of coping with empty nest syndrome and Margaret becoming Danielle’s new bestie and bridesmaid. I don’t know why it feels like we had to wait so long for a new season but I am table-flipping excited that it’s finally here.
The ninth season of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey premiers November 9th on Bravo. Check out the trailer below!
