Although we love all the housewives; RHONJ will always hold a special place in our heart. The show seems more organic than some of the others as the ladies already were friends (or family) and had genuine relationships before they joined, making the show seemed less forced.
We cannot wait for the new season, and in celebration of the upcoming premiere, we ranked what we thought were the top 10 most memorable moments of NJ. Did your top scene make our pick? Find out below!
10: Cast Trip to Italy
While the NJ ladies don’t always get the most exotic trip locations (Atlantic City, Vermont) the cast trip to Italy was truly something special. First off, most of the ladies are Italian (some 1/16th Italian) so seeing them go back to the motherland was unique. Seeing Teresa and Joe connect with his family along with Caroline’s parents on the gondola ride made us a little misty eyed. Truly a great trip!
9: Posche fashion show
We’re not going to name a particular Posche fashion show or moment – they all deserve a place on this list! For the sake of keeping this list at 10, we think the infamous fashion show in general deserves a spot. You know when you hear ‘Posche’ on RHONJ it’s going to involve some serious drama!
8: The Mother of All Rumors
Of all of the crazy storylines that have been a part of the housewives series – this one takes the cake! The fact that it came from Victoria Gotti even makes it even more bizarre. The rumor that Rino was a little too close to his mother in law (to put it nicely) is beyond disturbing and is one of the oddest rumors ever to appear on a housewives series. Hopefully this is the last that we will hear of this one!
7: Nicholas saying ‘I love you’
Despite all of the tears that happen on RHONJ, some of them turn out to be happy ones. This was the case when Jacqueline’s youngest son (who is on the autism spectrum) said ‘I love you’ to his mommy. For those that are not familiar with autism, loss of eye contact along with children becoming non-verbal are common traits. The fact that he was able to articulate his feelings to his mom was truly heart warming.
6: Teresa Pushes Andy
Before we had Kenya with her props we had the original outbreak at a reunion that involved a walk off by Danielle and Teresa turning on her boss. Teresa was so upset at the reunion that she ended up pushing the host Andy Cohen (to which she later apologized.) Andy was a little embarrassed that a girl could push him around and admitted that Teresa was ‘freakishly strong.’
5: Joe vs. Joe
Who can forget the infamous Joe vs. Joe brawl? When Joe Giudice came in demanding an apology to his wife, Joe Gorga came for him that resulted in an all out fistfight. Thankfully no serious injuries occurred; however Joe Gorga’s ego was a little bruised as we found out that he used spray on hair color to fill in his receding hairline! Thankfully now he has given into age/genetics and just decided to shave his head.
4: Dina being made Audriana’s godmother
Another sweet moment involves Teresa’s BFF Dina being made Audriana’s godmother. When Dina came to visit Teresa in the hospital, Teresa asked Dina how it felt to hold her godchild. Another RHONJ tear jerker moment as you could feel how special the moment was. Dina has made a great godmother, making sure to spend 1-1 time with Audriana, and throwing her an over the top christening party.
3: The Christening
Speaking of christenings, this was where viewers got to see just how bad the family feud between the Gorgas and Giudices was! What was supposed to be a religious celebration for the Gorga’s youngest son quickly turned into one of the most jaw dropping fights of the entire series!
2: Teresa and Joe Sentenced
Although the ‘Real Housewives’ can be accused of being fake – it didn’t get more real than this. Viewers and housewives watched as Teresa and Joe were sentenced to prison. Everyone agreed to put their differences aside as a mother/father having to leave their children put petty disagreements into perspective. This was also a major turning point for the Gorgas/Giudices.
1: The Table flip
Although Teresa has always been a superstar, this is the scene that put her (and RHONJ) on the map! It was picked up by every major news/entertainment outlet and is the most talked about Housewives moment of all time! Although Teresa said it wasn’t her proudest moment – she says it best in her new tagline: “I used to flip tables. Now I’m turning them!”
