Siggy Flicker was a great fit with the RHONJ cast, and with season 8 filming just a few weeks away, she’s gearing up for a big Bravo return! In a fresh new interview with FemaleFirst.Com, Siggy opened up about her emotional first season on the show, and fills us in on what she’s been up to. Even more, she tells us how she really feels about Danielle Staub’s rumored RHONJ return!
“It was exhausting. Definitely worth it but I couldn’t get out of bed for 30 days! I’m one of those people who feels other people’s pain and when you can’t help them it’s really difficult,” Siggy admitted.
She continued, “There was a lot of friendships broken up in the season and I really wanted to help people to move forward and to bring the pack together. It was heart-breaking. Teresa [Giudice] and Jacqueline [Laurita] have been friends for 18 years and they’ve shared a lot of precious moments. They’ve had babies at the same time and were really close so it was heart-breaking to see that relationship fall. It was also hard because I was just getting to know them for the first time. When I met Teresa we fell in love and had a bond but that had caused a bit of friction whereas I just wanted everyone to get along and move forward,” she confessed!
We broke the news that Siggy and Jacqueline had fallen out, but the holidays have a way of bringing people back together, which soon happened with them. As of now, her relationships with the cast are strong! “I’m close with all of them. I just got off the phone with Jacqueline, I talk to Melissa daily and Dolores and I are best friends. I would have to say Dolores and I speak the most. The Jersey Bond I think is very different to the other Housewives franchises. We all have a very common bond which is that we are all about family first and are obsessed with our husbands, ex-husbands and our children. It’s really hard to do a show when you’ve got children and husbands because when you don’t have to answer to a man, it’s a lot easier. It’s all about our families and we’re so obsessed that we call each other whenever something is happening with our families. Teresa, Dolores [Catania] and I went to Florida and we are already planning our next trip, unfortunately Melissa [Gorga] wasn’t able to make it. I just want all the best for everyone and the season was hard on everyone,” Siggy explained.
She played coy on next season, but we’re glad to hear if offered, Siggy will most likely be back. At one point we know she was on the fence, but this Bravo break has been exactly what she needed! “Contracts are coming up so you’ll have to ask me again in February,” she teased.
Siggy is a relationship expert, but I’m not sure if even she can bring Danielle Staub and Jacqueline Laurita back together. The Danielle we know is honest and doesn’t hold back. She’s been burned by Jacqueline and is out to expose her and her minion daughter Ashlee for what they really are.
Siggy is okay with Danielle coming back, and she is ready to embrace anyone new to the cast! “It doesn’t matter to me as I would welcome everyone. Bring it on! It’s never any of the other housewives who make the decision on who to bring in, so I’m always happy for anyone to join,” she revealed.
I have a very good feeling Siggy will be back for season 8; it’s clear from social media she’s a fan favorite. However, I’m not sure where her relationship with Jacqueline will go following a few months of filming. It looks like she and Melissa have gotten a lot closer, and we’ll definitely find out more about that on RHONJ!
I’m glad to hear Siggy’s positive response about Danielle’s return, and I do believe she will be welcoming to anyone on the show!
