The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 13 Recap: Prisons, Proposals, and Parties

With the news that Siggy Flicker was quitting The Real Housewives of New Jersey, many many questioned what her final storyline would focus on. 

Unsurprisingly, The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 13 did not paint her in the best light, and the season concluded with the star looking like the rudest housewife in the history of the franchise. 

When the episode began, Margaret was getting a little too excited about her birthday party. She was having her dress fitted, and there’s no denying it was a visually delightful dress. 

Danielle appeared and could not resist taking some more shots at Siggy. Maybe Danielle is just glad that she’s not the one on the outs with the gals. The days of Danielle being a pariah are over, and she’s using it to her full advantage. 

The action switched up to Casa de Giudice as the family got ready to give Teresa a surprise of her own for her birthday. Melissa, Joe and the girls. 

It was a cake with letters from the girls to show how much they loved her. If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you will already know that the girls have been hard on Teresa this season. 

For Teresa, she’s had a lot on her mind with her mother dying and her husband locked up in the slammer. Speaking of Joe, Teresa had not been to visit him in almost eight months. 

Given the countless rumors that Teresa has moved on with a new man, maybe she’s officially through with Joe. They’ve been through a lot as a couple, and maybe it’s time for them to move on. 

Anyway. Teresa wanted to visit and have him apologize for everything the family has been through. 

“I’m nervous to see Joe after all this time, and I want him to say sorry and really mean it,” she confessed to the camera with a tear dripping down her face. 

In an unsurprising turn of events, the cameras were not allowed in the prison and Teresa reported back that she did not get that apology she so desperately wanted. 

Before Teresa got to tell Melissa and Joe Gorga about all of it, the husband and wife chatted about the prospect of Teresa leaving her husband. 

They both agreed that Teresa would leave if he didn’t apologize, but Teresa confirmed the truth when she arrived to meet them. 

“He said, ‘I’m so sorry, I’ll never let anything like this happen ever again,’” she reported. “He seems sincere,” she added. “Listen, no one’s perfect. Everyone makes mistakes.”

Margaret’s party finally arrived, and she actually entered the venue on a fake horse. So, yeah, that happened. Everyone seemed to be laughing at Margaret as opposed to with her. 

Then, disaster struck when a rumor spread like a wildfire around the party that Siggy was not coming. It was quickly revealed that she fell and hurt herself. 

“Oh my God, it’s another deflection,” Danielle said with a grin. “She’s trying to get attention.” Dolores sprung into action, saying: “You’re such a slob.”

Siggy started texting the other women and completely iced Margaret out. We finally got to see her leaving the hospital, so it sounds like she really went. 

It was obvious Siggy did not want to go to the party, but she heard that Danielle was trash talking her and made it her mission to get there. 

As Margaret checked in with her, Siggy said, “I don’t want to be friends. I came here to be with Teresa and Melissa.”

Who goes to a party and speaks to the host like that? Margaret’s actions to Siggy have been justified because of the way Siggy has acted in the past. 

“If you don’t want to be here, just f–king leave,” Margaret said because she was done with the whole thing. 

Siggy got up to leave, and Dolores and Teresa left with her. This only made things more awkward for everyone, but it also closed out the season. 

Now, what will happen at the reunion? Will Siggy even show up? Oh, the drama!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey continues Wednesdays on Bravo.


Teen Mom 2 Sneak Peek: Babies! Proposals! New Cast Members!

If MTV learned anything from the fist-pumping phenomenon that was Jersey Shore, it’s that reality TV sensations don’t last forever.

As such, the network isn’t wasting any time in cranking out new seasons of its current wildly-popular franchise, Teen Mom.

Last night, another season of Teen Mom: OG came to a close, and the network took the occasion to announce that the long anticipated ninth season of Teen Mom 2 will be debuting July 17!

(Officially, it’s the show’s eighth season, as the most recent installment was referred to as season 7B for legal reasons, but we all know that’s a load of crap.)

Given the amount of drama that’s transpired in the months since the show last wrapped filming, we’re half wondering how producers will cram it all in …

… especially since this season will see the addition of a fifth mom.

Yes, Briana DeJesus will join the cast following a one-season stint on the ill-fated Teen Mom 3.

It’s curious timing, as the show has a whole lot to address as it is.

Here’s what the rest of the girls will be coping with in the season to come:

Jenelle Evans: You might want to start wearing hats on your feet, folks, because we are truly living in an upside-down opposite world where nothing makes sense.

Jenelle recently got engaged to David Eason; she’s welcomed a third child; and sources say she’s committed herself to creating a stable home life.

She’s basically Martha Stewart with just slightly less time behind bars.

Yes, the occasional social media feud with Eason’s sister aside, Jenelle appears to have found genuine domestic contentment.

We hope Satan is a hockey fan.

Kailyn Lowry: We’re guessing producers didn’t have to do much brainstorming to come up with a storyline here.

Kail’s life has been non-stop drama since the cameras stopped rolling on Season 8 (or 7B, if you must. Sigh).

In case you somehow missed it, Kailyn is pregnant with her third child, and the whole thing has been so eventful that she probably could’ve supported a spin-off season all by herself.

We finally learned the identity of Kailyn’s baby daddy after months of secrecy, but that’s just one of the many shocking developments on As the Baby Bump Turns.

Leah Messer: Unlike in years past, Leah has actually kept something of a low profile between seasons.

According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Hot Messer’s storyline will revolve around her efforts to launch a life-coaching business.

Yes, Leah has had her sh-t together for like seven or eight months now, so she apparently believed it’s time to help others do the same.

Hey, whatever makes her happy.

Interestingly, The Ashley also says that Leah’s second baby daddy, Jeremy Calvert, will be returning to the show, despite earlier promises to quit.

Chelsea Houska: Chelsea would probably beat out Jenelle for the title of Most Stable Teen Mom, were it not for one thing:

Her douche-tastic baby daddy Adam Lind is still a factor in Chelsea’s life, and these days, he’s more ridiculous thn ever.

Lind tested positive for meth recently, and it looks as though he’s soon to lose custody of his daughter with Taylor Halbur.

It remains to be seen if Chelsea will pursue similar legal action against her ex.

Fortunately, her life at home with new husband Cole DeBoer, son Watson, and daughter Aubree remains picture perfect.
