All that glitters is not gold, especially when talking about The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 12 reunion.
The trailer dropped, and the three-part reunion is explosive.
After arguably one of the better seasons in years, the reunion adds another layer to the already fractured cast.
What can viewers expect from the RHONJ Season 12 reunion?
The ladies all showed up wearing gold outfits, but Teresa Giudice ensured that she was more blingy than the others.
She even stood up and said, “Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? Teresa Giudice.”
Margaret Josephs goes head-to-head with Teresa again. Their Nashville incident is revisited, and Marge calls out Luis Ruelas for lying on camera. This turns Teresa’s anger up a notch, which only means things intensify.
Jennifer Aydin is asked about the affair, and she deflects it as Margaret’s fault. Dolores Catania and Jennifer have unresolved issues, and those also come out.
When the men come out, things get even more out of control. Jennifer yells at Bill Aydin to speak up. Andy Cohen questions Frank Catania about not liking Dolores’ new man, making things between the exes more intense. The men allegedly don’t see eye to eye.
Andy didn’t waste any time and asked Louie about the accusations against him, including slashing tires and alleged physical abuse.
Jackie Goldschneider opened up about making her battle with an eating disorder public. She was visibly upset but felt it was important to get it out there. It was easily one of the most challenging parts of the reunion.
Teresa Giudice slams brother Joe Gorga
For weeks, there’s been speculation surrounding what caused Joe Gorga to storm off the reunion stage and threaten to quit. It was rumored to be about Gia Giudice and their rocky relationship, but Melissa Gorga dispelled that rumor during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
The reunion trailer revealed what set Joe off, and it was his sister, Teresa Giudice. Things escalated quickly when the conversation turned to Jennifer calling Joe a crook and Teresa not defending her brother.
When the comment about Jennifer saying Joe was a “b***h boy” was repeated on the reunion stage. Shockingly, Teresa agreed with her friend and called her brother the name as well.
After preaching about family for several seasons and watching Melissa and Joe keep their mouths closed about Luis Ruelas out of respect for Teresa, this comment was the ultimate betrayal.
Where things stand among the women and their husbands now remains unknown. Given the intensity of things, it will be interesting to see who returns for Season 13.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
