The newest RHONJ Siggy Flicker wears many hats; she is a mother, wife, real housewife, and relationship expert, so it’s only natural for her to weigh in on her co-stars marriages! All of these couples have dealt with rumors in the media, yet they are proving to be stronger than ever, and Siggy is speaking out to assure fans “You’re not gonna have divorce with the Jersey Housewives.”
Siggy recently spoke to The Daily Dish and explained what makes RHONJ different than the other franchises! “I feel like — and I can say this for all the Jersey Housewives, and I hope that you play this over and over again — unlike any other franchise you’re not gonna have divorce with the Jersey housewives.”
Siggy’s been all over the media speaking out about her plastic surgery and promoting RHONJ season 7, so we’ve heard here “car analogy” before; but here it is again! “I have to tell people, I want to think about it like a car, because my husband is a car salesman, if you don’t put gas in the car, the car’s not gonna move from point A to point B. You can say, ‘Oh, I’m married. I can just put my hair in a ponytail, put on my UGG slippers, sit on the couch, eat potato chips.’ You got to maintain yourself. You got to keep the marriage alive and it’s called work. Nothing in life that’s worth it comes easy. You got to work at it.”
Siggy’s family life is far from typical, she is currently married to her first husband’s best man, Michael Campanella. She divulged her theory on how to make a marriage work, and she’s got some great advice! “It takes two to tango. You come together and you do for each other.”
While some fans think that the RHONJ marriages are in trouble, Siggy dished, “I see that with Chris and Jacqueline [Laurita]. I see it with Melissa and Joe [Gorga]. I see it with Teresa and Joe [Giudice]. I see it with Kathy and Richie [Wakile]. I see it with Rosie [Pierri] and her girlfriend. And Dolores, Dolores is taking a dating detox.” I will say I think it’s odd that Siggy mentioned Kathy and Rosie but not the other “friend” of the wives Robyn Levy and her wife Christina. From what I’ve seen and heard their relationship is rock solid, and they also have the most adorable son Jake the man! I hope as the season goes on we see more of Jac’s friends including Robyn as part of the cast, she is just as relevant as Kathy and Rosie are, if not more!
As for Dolores, she revealed in the season premiere that she had recently broken up with her ex-fiancé, and it’s been 15 years since she split from her husband Frank. Siggy has challenged her BFF to “re-prioritize and put herself first when it comes to dating.” She wrapped, “What was important for me with Dolores is for Dolores to know she’s the biggest lottery ticket I’ve ever come across. I love Dolores. It’s time for Dolores to know her worth.”
I can’t say enough good things about Dolores and I hope she finds the man of her dreams, she deserves it! Siggy’s advice is simple and applicable, although I do live sitting on the couch in a ponytail and slippers eating chips; don’t we all? Regardless, she seems like one smart woman and it’s so refreshing to see a housewife complimenting her co-stars marriages instead of putting them down (unusual right?)
I hope Siggy is right and none of these relationships end in divorce, but now we will just need to wait and see!
