The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 7 Recap: Another Fiery Feud Kicks Off

Danielle Staub’s return was always going to make sparks fly, but the drama from her has been rather subdued to date. 

That all changed on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 7 when she was put on the spot once again for Dolores allegedly warning her about Teresa Giudice only wanting money. 

When the episode got underway, Siggy Flicker was going on about her brand new idea to host overnight retreats to help empower women. If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you will know that Siggy has done anything but empower her co-stars. 

She’s flat-out publicly shamed some of them, belittled them and made them feel like their feelings are not being taken into consideration. We shudder to think what she would be saying about Margaret if Dolores did not manage to get her to give the fashion mogul another chance. 

It’s unclear whether Michael knows his wife does not empower women. Maybe that’s the reason why he wants her to do fewer things associated with extending her brand. At the first big speech of the retreat, it seemed like Siggy was calling Margaret out in the same way she called Melissa out two weeks ago. 

Margaret, and most viewers, prepared for the worst when Siggy brought up the whole “Soggy Flicker” thing. But Siggy opened up to a whole room full of people about the various names she was called in school. 

It was horrible to watch because, for the first time, it seemed like Siggy was being genuine with all of the women about her past. The ladies then made their way to a room that included various things for them to do. 

They could talk about plastic surgery, get some new pictures taken for their dating profiles, get make-up done, or even buy clothing with empowering statements written on them. 

Most of the ladies bonded, but Teresa turned to Danielle and told her about a meeting she had with Dolores. Teresa noted that she had known Dolores for over twenty years, and it would not be wise to cut her out. 

Danielle got on board with that, but she was not impressed when she heard that Dolores practically called her a drug abuser. Danielle managed to keep her composure, but the two ladies went at it over dinner. 

Dolores questioned Danielle’s motives for being friends with Teresa after all of the years of animosity. Danielle denied that she had any bad blood with Teresa, noting that she wanted to be friends with her. 

Somehow, we believe her, but she does have a sketchy track record when it comes to keeping people close to her. The other ladies seemed to collectively agree that Dolores went below the belt by saying she had a drug problem. 

Danielle is not one to let things go, and if the trailer at the close of the episode is anything to go by, she will get her revenge, and it will be worth the wait. 

The episode featured a lot of filler, and it’s becoming increasingly apparent that these women are just not able to bring the drama. They don’t make the fight scenes like they once did, and it’s sad. 

We would even go as far as to say it may be time to rest this iteration of the franchise. All of the stories have been done to death previously. The only two that can still bring some drama are Dolores and Danielle.

Teen Mom New Jersey: Canceled Before It Even Aired!

MTV and the Garden State formed an unholy alliance years ago with the debut of Jersey Shore, a harrowing documentary series about the devastating impact of Ed Hardy shirts and tribal tattoos on one sleepy seaside town.

Both parties experienced tremendous good fortune in the years that followed–MTV with the Teen Mom franchise, and Jersey with the slow, meatball hoagie-fueled decline of Governor Chris Christie.

So hopes were high when it was announced that the network execs who gave us Snooki and the state that gave us Springsteen would once again be joining forces for Teen Mom: New Jersey.

The project was announced over the summer, and MTV immediately cranked the hype machine up to 11.

Within days, there was sky-high anticipation from the same demographic that made Teen Mom: OG and Teen Mom 2 smash hits.

Social media pages were launched, and the identities of the show’s stars were teased as though they were the members of a new Simon Cowell-founded pop group.

So you can imagine the waves of surprise and chagrin that rippled across the internet yesterday when The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reported that MTV had pulled the plug on Teen Mom: New Jersey before the show ever made it to air.

Teen Mom New Jersey

Yes, it seems that the show will never see the light of day, and its “stars” are every bit as confused as its potential audience.

“Last weekend the girls on the show got calls basically informing them that the show isn’t going to air,” a source tells The Ashley.

“They didn’t really give them an explanation—just the standard ‘We’re moving in another direction’ line. The girls are really upset because they’ve worked so hard on this project and were really excited for its premiere.”

Details are scarce, but it sounds as though MTV simply passed on the show, presumably after getting their first glimpse at the finished product.

It’s worth noting that the show was not produced by 11th Street Productions, the company responsible for the 16 and Pregnant and the original Teen Mom shows.

It’s another reminder that you can capture lightning in a bottle twice, but not three times, as Teen Mom 3 so poignantly reminded us.

Sigh. At least we’ll always have the original series.

So practice some self-care and watch Teen Mom: OG online to get yourself through this difficult time.

There will only ever be one Farrah Abraham, which is both tragic and wonderful news.


The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 6 Recap: Growing Up Jersey

Bravo’s successful Real Housewives franchise has always aimed to bring high drama to viewers, but the drama is all based on whether the cast members want to bring it. 

Unfortunately, the current housewives on The Real Housewives of New Jersey are not working. On The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 6, Teresa thought she was getting a break from the drama. 

However, her vacation was ruined by her daughters continuing to whine at her every single time she spoke to them.

It was painful to watch, but it certainly made me think those kids are sick of having cameras around them. They have been on the show for the entire series, and the recent bad press about their parents has to have had some sort of effect on them. 

The producers are trying to implement this whole storyline about Teresa letting the children get away with everything, but it seems more like that’s just been thrown in to explain their very blatant hatred of the cameras. 

It must be difficult for Teresa because she was gone from their lives for a considerable amount of time, but the kids either need to be left out of the show or be told they need to participate if they are in front of the camera. 

Teresa’s storyline this week consisted of her trying to get through to her children while trying to have a little fun herself and you could tell she was miserable. 

What didn’t help was everyone at the resort in Puerto Rico staring into the camera. Maybe Teresa’s storyline has just run its course, and it’s time to follow some new people. 

Back in New Jersey, Siggy went to get pellets to get her hormone levels back on track because she admitted she had something wrong with her. 

Hey, it’s the first step to recovery, so everyone should be giving her the thumbs up. Her mood has been all over the place, and it’s a little bit unethical to have her in front of the reality tv cameras in that manner. 

Margaret decided it was time to nip all the feuding in the bud and called Dolores to meet her for lunch. It started off very awkward, and it was clear Dolores wanted to stick up for Siggy. 

That’s what friends do, and Dolores is coming across as the most loyal woman on this show nowadays. Margaret is a real hoot. She has eyelashes on her mini cooper, so she must be a great person. 

For some reason, Margaret opened up about raising her ex-husband’s children for several years before they fell out with her for leaving their father. 

It seemed forced, but Dolores reacted to the waterworks. The two women found some common ground, and it helped Dolores understand what Margaret was about. 

Dolores took the news to Siggy during a double date with Frank and Michael. Initially, Siggy was against being friends with Margaret, but Dolores continued to push the fact that she thought the woman was misunderstood. 

Siggy finally decided to give Margaret another chance, but it’s difficult to expect the two women to do anything other than fight until the bitter end. 

This was hands down the worst episode of the series. There were no big talking points. It was all filler to show off Teresa on her all expenses paid family vacation to Puerto Rico. 

Danielle was not even part of the episode. Her voice was in it thanks to a phone call with Teresa, but isn’t this woman supposed to be, like, causing all the drama to keep us tuning in?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 5 Recap: Not Over It

Siggy Flicker does not miss a trick. 

That much became clear on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 5 when she continued to put Margaret on blast for everything that happened in Florida. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you will already know that Siggy and Margaret put their beef aside. So, it was confusing as hell when the ladies assembled the Gorga restaurant to test out the menu. 

Initially, it seemed as though Siggy and Margaret were on good terms, but that all changed when Margaret stopped defending Dolores for the way she had been acting to everyone. 

Everyone thought it would be a good idea to talk about Dolores still living with her ex-husband while dating a brand new man. The thing that irked Siggy was that Dolores had not arrived at the party, so she could not defend herself. 

When that was shrugged off, Danielle Staub wanted to know whether Teresa believed her claim that Dolores called her greedy. Teresa could not answer it. In all fairness, she was in a difficult situation. 

Dolores had been in her life for 20 years, while Danielle only returned to her life just three months before the filming of the episode. You could tell Danielle was mad. 

At the other table, Siggy went nuclear about Margaret. 

“I want to give a really sharp knife to Margaret so that when I leave tonight, she can continue to stab me in the back.” Siggy then took aim at Danielle, saying she was making everything up. 

Margaret and Siggy went over to the table, and Siggy stuck her tongue out at Margaret like a petulant child. When Dolores appeared, Siggy and her claimed that Margaret’s fashion line was complete trash. 

“You’re one of the ugliest human beings in the world for making fun of me!” Siggy shouted as made her big exit. “This is boring! It’s boring!”

Danielle decided to throw her two cents in and aimed at Dolores for having a new boyfriend while living with her ex-husband. Dolores got ready to take a hit at Danielle, but Teresa got her out of the restaurant before anything happened. 

In all honesty, the whole scene seemed like a desperate ploy from the producers to get some footage because the rest of the episode was light on the drama. 

We found out that Dolores’ boyfriend was buying take out for her ex-husband and son, but does the man really exist? Maybe he just does not want to be part of the show because we all know how toxic it can be. 

The big blowup that was teased between Melissa and Teresa was a complete and utter dud. The two women bickered over photos, and that was it. It was resolved in a matter of scenes. 

It’s a shame because this season kicked off with so much promise, and the drama has fizzled out very quickly. We need Danielle to stir the pot some more and keep us entertained.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 4 Recap: The Public Shaming of Melissa

Danielle Staub is back, but is she the root of all the drama?

That became the biggest storyline on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 4 when she revealed some shocking details to Teresa about Dolores. 

Dolores allegedly said that all Teresa cares about is money and that Danielle would be wise to steer clear of her. Danielle thrives on some drama, so she dished the goodies to Teresa. 

Teresa was mad, and she thought it made sense because of the way Dolores has kept her distance from her over the last few weeks.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you will know that Dolores has been too busy following Siggy around to bother with the other women on the show. 

Teresa wasted no time in dragging Dolores for her alleged comments, and Dolores went straight for the jugular with Danielle. 

“Welcome back, Scumbag!” she barked at her new enemy as she tried to clear her name. Teresa did not know who to believe, but a part of her was saying that Danielle was telling the truth. 

Dolores called Danielle a liar, a “crazy person,” and a“starving, hungry bitch.” She then tried to diagnose Danielle’s multitude of problems and said that it was no coincidence that Danielle returned and things got bad between the women. 

Danielle started bawling like a baby and made a swift exit with Teresa and Melissa. If Danielle is here to cause the drama, she can stay. This episode was crazy!

Then there was Siggy who thought inviting all the women to her cocktail party would continue to repair their fractured friendships. However, things took a crazy turn when Siggy ambushed Melissa about throwing the cake. 

“In a million years I wouldn’t take a beautiful cake like that and throw it across the floor,” Siggy yelled. Melissa was shocked but asked to buy her another cake to shut her up. 

Siggy then asked every single person whether Melissa acted wrongly and they all sided with Siggy. This was yet another moment that proved these women are going to be fighting until the bitter end. 

Elsewhere, Teresa and Melissa are starting to fight again, and part of the reason is that Joe bought the restaurant without consulting Melissa about it. Melissa learned that she was the last person to know and that did not go down well with her. 

The ladies bickered when they met with Joe to speak about running the restaurant. Melissa claimed she would not be doing anything that would involve getting her hands dirty. 

So, it looks like Melissa and Teresa are going to be feuding once again. Would we have it any other way?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 3 Recap: The Apology

Siggy “Soggy” Flicker cannot let a grudge go. 

That became abundantly clear on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 3 when she tried to steer clear of Margaret. 

When the episode got underway, it was all about Teresa as she tried to move her father into her home. Even though her mother was gone, she knew her father wanted to be around. 

That’s why she let him move all of his antique furniture into the house. Having him around is good for her because it means that she will have someone to help with the kids while her husband is in the big house. 

Teresa met up with Siggy to clear the air, and Siggy was anything but nice about Margaret. She felt like the woman betrayed her trust and tried to steal her friends. 

She told Teresa she wanted to pull her pigtails out of her head because they were just plain annoying. As much as Teresa wanted to say Siggy’s crying was equally as annoying, she managed to keep quiet. 

Melissa was blindsided when Joe bought a restaurant and staffed it without even consulting her. Being in a relationship with someone, you expect to know these things before a sale even starts. 

Joe used a petty excuse and said it was mostly for his father. Melissa was mad about all of it because all she wanted was to be kept in the loop. She had every right to be annoyed. 

The big event of the episode was Margaret’s party for her new clothing line, and Siggy and Dolores gave her rude responses when she invited them. It did not help that Margaret invited Siggy after realizing she was blocked on her social media accounts. 

At the party, which looked like it was on a construction site, Margaret reached out to Siggy to meet up to clear the air. Siggy and Dolores laughed as they replied back to her. 

When it came to the lunch date, Siggy had her guard up, and the two women went at it. It was tense, and it looked like Siggy was going to cut Margaret’s pigtails at one point, but the turning point was when Siggy started wailing. 

Margaret said her intention was not to make her cry and that they should not be acting in such a way because it was not good for women empowerment. They decided to put the past behind them. 

But, based on the preview for next week, cakegate continues and all of the ladies look ready to fight one each other. Even though the action is blatantly fake, the addition of Margaret has been a good one. 

She is a hoot to watch on screen. She says exactly what she thinks, and that’s about all we can ask for.
