Next month when RHONJ returns for their ninth season, we will be welcoming two new housewives, Jacqueline Mark Goldschneider and Jennifer Aydin. And according to the RHONJ trailer leaked by Bravo New Zealand today (Thanks, Kiwis!) they are coming in hot.
UPDATED TO ADD THE VIDEO TO END OF THIS POST! It’s been released now.
Jacqueline is a freelance writer who once wrote a piece on the Lauritas about autism on NewJersey.com. Her primary writing consists of her “Mommy blog.” Jennifer is a mother of five and is married to a plastic surgeon.
Based on the trailer, Melissa and Teresa’s détente has ended and they have divided up the newbies among themselves. Teresa has taken Jennifer to her side, while Jacqueline has joined Team Melissa. Jennifer is friends with Kathy Wakile and knows everyone. Both Teresa and Melissa blame each others newbie BFFs for leading them astray. At one point when arguing over the new girls on the trailer, Teresa screams at Melissa, “You want something, bitch?” and Melissa responds with, “You’ve got the wrong fucking girl!” and things seem like they may come to blows.
The cast went to Turkey for their overseas trip in season nine. The trip seems to be based on Jennifer arranging a marriage for her brother to a family friend in Turkey. There is a lot of pushback from the ladies about arranged marriages. Jennifer was matched to someone in an arranged marriage but it is unclear from the clip if her current husband was the arranged husband. Both Jennifer and her husband appear to have a Turkish background . Jennifer known for her Turkish cuisine and I am very excited to see her cooking skills and hopefully some recipes. Melissa seems to think that Jennifer’s wealth has Teresa under her spell. I believe Jennifer’s husband is Chief of Staff at the hospital he works for.
The other trip was to Cabo. It seems to have come first because at that point Teresa and Melissa were getting along. So it seems Melissa have may have good reason for blaming Jennifer for the breakdown of their relationship. The preview ends with Melissa telling Teresa she isn’t sure Teresa will ever love her like a sister. I don’t think Melissa has a sister because this is generally the way sister relationships go. They have their ups and downs.
Jackie has two sets of twins under the age of ten. She is friends with Margaret Josephs so that means Margaret will be on Melissa’s side this season. Margaret says at a sit down meal with the cast that Jennifer’s husband sleeps at his girlfriend’s house. Jennifer loses her mind.
Oddly, Danielle Staub who got married on the season and her husband filed for divorce within months, was not seen on the trailer. If you look fast you might catch a glimpse of Delores. There are seven chairs at the dinner table in Turkey, but no sign of Danielle. The empty fourth chair is on Melissa’s side of the table but I feel like since Teresa was her maid of honor Danielle should be on Teresa’s side. All seven women appear to be on the camel ride though so it appears everyone made the trip. My sources have informed me just now that Danielle will be relegated to the friend role again.
I’m kind of excited about this trailer. I really like Jennifer at this point but I will likely overall be on Melissa’s side. So far Jackie doesn’t seem to have a lot to offer other than have twins and being a mommy blogger. Hopefully she will be more compelling than I expect.
Bravo sure is having the week when it comes to trailers for the upcoming housewives season. First, Porsha waits to come clean about being pregnant until after the RHOA trailer was completed causing a rush to add in the news before the planned release next week, and now RHONJ has been leaked ahead of the RHOA trailer. This RHONJ may not even be complete since Danielle’s drama is not included. Although, a Tamara Tattles exclusive source says that RHONJ has been worried about story lines getting leaked (so maybe they saw this coming?) and also that RHONJ was paring the season down to 14 episodes for reasons that were not abundantly clear to me. Perhaps that has to do with Danielle not being a full-time housewife?
This season on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” shocking revelations lead to shifting alliances, causing old school rules of friendship and family to be pushed to the limit. Teresa continues her journey as an independent woman during the final year of Joe Giudice’s prison sentence and decides to enter a bodybuilding competition against her husband’s wishes. Meanwhile, Melissa discovers some scandalous secrets about her father sparking her to search for answers. Dolores has been questioning her life choices and struggling with empty nest syndrome more than ever, which is partly due to her distracted workaholic boyfriend David. After becoming fast friends last season, Margaret discovers she’s signed up for more than she expected as a bridesmaid in Danielle’s upcoming nuptials. When new housewife Jennifer enters the scene, she calls out Margaret for the scandalous affair that ended Marge’s first marriage, creating a rift between the two ladies that spirals out of control. But the entire group is forced to pick sides after Teresa rips open old family wounds. And newcomer Jackie quickly proves that she’s not afraid to go up against Teresa. However, Jackie finds herself in a position where she has to prove herself after Teresa accuses her of coming between family – the one thing that you NEVER do in Jersey. After years of rebuilding old friendships and forming new ones, these ladies are left wondering if their once close-knit group has been fractured beyond repair.
