Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania and Margaret Josephs — are back tonight for the ninth season of Real Housewives of New Jersey premiere!
The ladies will be joined by new Housewives — Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldschneider, along with Danielle Staub.
In season 9 — Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga get into a slew of heated fights over Joe Gorga and Melissa dodging their duties when it comes to caring for Teresa’s father.
AllabouttheTEA.com exclusively reported in April, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga spice it up with a sisterly screech-fest during the cast trip to Oklahoma.
“Teresa and Melissa got into a screaming match over Teresa’s belief that Joey and Melissa are dodging their duties when it comes to caring for Teresa and Joey’s father,” dished the source. “Papa Gorga lives with Teresa, and she feels that all of the responsibility has fallen on her shoulders. She called Melissa selfish, and Melissaslammed Teresa back, for making her elderly father drive her daughters around all day. Melissa also blasted Teresa for never being at home with her kids.”
But before you start thinking these two hate each other — think again! According to our show insider, production is making them crank up their disdain from a 2 to a 10 — all for Bravo cameras.
Also this season, Dolores grapples with with empty nest syndrome more than ever, after both of her kids leave the home for college. And a scandal about her ex-husband, Frank, is exposed.
Jennifer and Margaret pretty much feud all season over Marge’s infidelity that ended her first marriage.
As exclusively reported, the ladies choose sides — Teresa, Danielle and Jennifer band together while — Melissa, Margaret and Jackie join forces.
Jackie goes up against Teresa. However, Jackie finds herself in a position where she has to prove herself after Teresa accuses her of coming between family.
Meet the New Housewives:
Coming from a traditional Turkish background, Jennifer Aydin has always put her family first. She is a mother to five children ranging from 5 to 13-years old and is happily married to a successful plastic surgeon. But as Jennifer’s youngest child is about to enter school, Jennifer finds herself ready to break out of her traditional role as homemaker and mother, challenging the roles she and her husband have subscribed to for their entire relationship. And when Jennifer helps to arrange her brother Michael’s marriage to a family friend in Turkey, she is unprepared for the backlash she faces from some of the ladies who find it difficult to accept her less than modern ways.
As a mother of two sets of twins under the age of 10, Jackie Goldschneider’s hands are completely full at all times. Worried about raising her children in a privileged home, she is determined that they grow up as strong and self-sufficient individuals. Jackie is a former real estate attorney but has recently found passion in her new career as a parent blogger. Being friends with Margaret already, Jackie is totally ready to connect with a new group of women and start giving them advice, which may not go as well as she plans.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres on Bravo, Wednesday, November 7, at 9 p.m. ET.
