Season 11 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is underway and just as fans have come to expect, this season promises to be just as dramatic as the last.
RHONJ star Jennifer Aydin recently dropped by The Rumour Mill podcast for a chat with hosts Spencer and Abby where she dished on what to expect throughout the season, as well as the impact that sharing her personal life on television has had on her and her family.
Jennifer worries that her family may be judged for airing their ‘dirty laundry’
During her chat with Spencer and Abby, Jennifer indicated that she was worried about what would be shown when the new season aired.
“I’m a little nervous about things, you know, that has to do with my own personal storyline,” she shared.
Jennifer then delved into why she’s nervous about her family’s portrayal in the new season.
“I’m nervous on how my family’s going to react,” she said. “So, me, personally, I’m all about sharing it all. I feel like that’s my gift. But not everybody’s like that. And, culturally, coming from a Middle Eastern background, we don’t like to air our dirty laundry.”
Jennifer then talked about how she’s often more comfortable opening up her life on social media with her “American people” than she is with her “cultural people” because they’re more judgmental.
“I feel like, you know, I’m already very candid with my life before I was on the show. So, I don’t really see necessary – like, I don’t feel it’s necessary to alter [it] just cause the cameras are rolling,” she shared.
Jennifer wants RHONJ fans to see more of her personality in Season 11
RHONJ fans have come to expect Jennifer to be up to her usual antics, and this season is no different.
Trailers for the season showed a very drunk Jennifer, stumbling around and dropping to her knees at a pool party. Jennifer says that’s not who she is, and in addition, she’s hoping to show fans a different side of the this season.
“I am the silly girl, I’m the funny girl, I’m the way that I can be. I’m really great at being passive aggressive for getting my point across. And, honestly, what you see on the show as far as, like, my no filter strategy, that’s how I am in real life all the time,” she shared.
Jennifer continued, “And I’m actually very excited for this season because I feel like you’re gonna get to know so much more of my personality than you did my first season. You know, my first season, they concentrated on the house, with the money and the bragging and the ‘money can’t buy you class’ thing. Like, that’s really not what I’m about.”
According to Jennifer, all the flack she got last season wasn’t warranted. She wasn’t bragging or showing off, she was excited with her new home and wanted to share it with her friends.
“I feel like this season you’re going to, I feel like people are over the money thing. I mean, we’ve already established that I’m not the richest Housewife and I don’t care. Like, I’m good to have this beautiful bubble that I’ve created for my kids and I’m grateful for it. So, I feel like this season you’re gonna get to see more of my personality,” she concluded.
