Back In The Garden State (Television Thoughts: Real Housewives Of New Jersey Season 7 Premiere, Bravo)


I was never a big fan of ‘Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ even though I should be, being an ex-New Jersey resident. (I much prefer the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the New York housewives from the down-to-earthness of the New Jersey gals) But I saw the show on and off, though more off. I of course tuned in part of last season, just to see the sendoff of Theresa Guidice to prison. She was one of the ones I really disliked, and it didn’t help matters that up until the very end she was trying to play victim, as if it’s not really clear to everyone that she had a hand in what she was accused of. So yes, of course the franchise closed for a year while she was ‘away,’ and now that she has been released (this actually happened in December 2015) the cameras are rolling again.

So what have we got here? Well, Jacqueline is back, of course, to torment her ex-BB Theresa. And Melissa is, too, as she opens her new boutique called ‘Envy.’ And we get two new housewives: Dolores, who seems to have ties with all the housewives (she is boring me already) and someone named Siggy, whose entrance is stunning – she i swearing turban and sunglasses, because she has just had a facelift in Boca Raton. (So many yummy things in that sentence) Well, this season may not be a snoozefest for me after all.

And of course, they document Theresa’s homecoming, and it’s waterworks city. I may or may not admit that I kinda sorta shed a little tear as she sees her kids for the first time back in her house (She revealed she saw them once a week so I feel kind of stupid crying) But – there STILL seems to be little remorse from Theresa. She says “I’ve been fooled once and never again,” still claiming innocence, still miss goody two shoes.

So will this make me go and keep on watching? We’ll just have to wait and see..
