What is The Show All About?
Even though many of you have already watched the show and, therefore, have an idea about what it is all about. However, for all those who are hearing about it for the first time, we will share some significant details for your convenience. The Real Housewives of New Jersey is an American reality television series. It first premiered on May 12th, 2009, on Bravo.
This was, in fact, the fourth installment of The Real Housewives franchise. Until now, they have aired around eleven seasons that focus on the personal and professional lives of several women residing in New Jersey in the United States. Needless to say, this show has always been a box office hit and has received immense love and appreciation from the fans.
However, the twelfth season soon shifted away from the drama between Gia and Joe Storms. In fact, they focused more on the drama between Jennifer Aydin and Margaret Josephs and the tension between Margaret and Teresa Giudice. But that does not say that there have not been cracks in the Guidice-Gorga relationship. So let us now delve deeper into some of the other issues centering on the show.
The Issue of Teresa Giudice’s Wedding Comes Up
If you watch the show regularly, you must have seen the wedding of Teresa taking place. In fact, Luis ‘Louie’ Ruela proposed to Teresa just after the filming for the season had ended. Needless to say, the RHONJ OG has been quite open about her wedding planning much ahead of the reunion.
Fans will indeed remember what Teresa Giudice shared in an episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. Here she had revealed that she had not asked her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, to be one of her bridesmaids for the upcoming nuptials. So probably something was going on among the celebrities.
At this moment, Andy Cohen seized the opportunity to ask Melissa Gorga how she felt about her exclusion from the reunion. It can actually be assumed from her words that something is rotten in the state of New Jersey! So responding to Andy’s question, Melissa explained that the situation did not offend her initially. However, when she saw who was there at the bridal party, the situation changed.
In fact, Melissa also pointed out that if Teresa had only selected her daughters, she wouldn’t have felt anything. However, when she saw Louie’s sister was also a part of the program, she was hurt. Furthermore, Melissa also pointed out that she had included Teresa in her wedding to Joe Storms.
However, Teresa quickly fires back, saying that if she cared about Teresa at the time, she would have shifted the wedding to another time. She was pregnant, so they could have easily shifted the date.
Teresa Giudice’s Altercation with Her Brother
By now, you must have indeed heard that the relationship between Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law is not in a good position. In the midst of this, Andy brings in another member of her family: her brother, Joe Storms. In fact, it also becomes quite evident that Mr. Gorga is not thrilled with his sister.
So when Joe thinks back on the issues he has faced with his sister throughout the season, Joe complains that he felt disrespected by his niece. However, things become tenser when he mentions Teresa’s response to Jennifer calling him names. In fact, she had also called him a “crook” on social media.
Even though Jennifer initially interjects and points out that she had tried to apologize, things continue to escalate. Finally, when Jennifer uses slang, things go south for the Giudice-Gorga family.
Furthermore, Teresa doubles down on Jen’s words, telling Joe Storms that he is truly “a little b***boy.” In fact, it is his habit to involve extensively in the women’s business. Naturally, Joe does not take the comment well. This escalated the situation and made him storm off set, telling both Andy and Bravo that he was quitting the show. So the situation is indeed pretty tense. In an upcoming episode, we find that Andy asks Teresa to bring him back to the reunion. However, we are yet to see whether she is successful or not.
What are The Fans Reaction To The Explosive First Part of The Reunion?
Needless to say, the fans were highly supportive of Teresa Giudice throughout this season. However, many fans are now finding it difficult to defend her after watching the first part of the reunion. Comments have started pouring in from Melissa’s wedding to her inability. Moreover, the viewers have quickly pointed out that Teresa is not always the best sister-in-law.

Teressa you have chosen this new family and lets hope you don’t ever have to come back to your actual one cause they won’t be there ever again #RHONJ— SArN94 (@confused_dork) May 4, 2022
Therefore, it is hard to believe that we are just one episode into the three-part reunion when so much drama is happening. We sincerely hope they can sort things out amongst themselves soon enough and keep spreading love.
So as we conclude, we can say that Real Housewives of New Jersey is an iconic show of all time. Its popularity is at a different level altogether. Therefore, when our favorite characters fight among themselves, it also affects us. Since the show centers on a family, we hope that they can maintain the bonding among the members and sort things out soon.
