Kim DePaola is one of the most controversial figures on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and she’s set to make quite the appearance during season 8.
As always Kim D’s presence causes a ton of drama especially considering her past with the RHONJ cast.
On the one hand, Kim is the sworn enemy of Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, and on the other, she’s good friends with Siggy Flicker.
Quite the conundrum, right?
It’s no secret that Siggy’s friendship with Kim D has raised more than one eyebrow. In fact, earlier this year we questioned how Siggy’s association with Kim D could affect her friendships with Melissa and Teresa.
So, why does Siggy remain friends with Kim D?
During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Siggy explained why she’s friends with Kim D and why she has no plans to end their friendship.
“Well, the thing is that Kim D. is my friend, and I’m gonna stand behind her, and there’s nothing that anybody can do about it,” Siggy explained. “I’ve been friends with her five years prior to even knowing who Melissa and Teresa were.”
Plus, Siggy says one day Melissa and Teresa could be friends with Kim D again.
“You never know where friendships are gonna go. Who would’ve thought that Melissa and Teresa would be so close? And who would’ve thought that Teresa flipping a table at Danielle [Staub], and now they’re namaste-ing together,” Siggy pointed out. “So I’m a leader; I’m not a follower, and I’m just not gonna dump friends because my friends don’t get along.”
I’ve talked to Siggy several times about this subject, and she’s made it clear she ALWAYS shuts Kim D down when she tries to bad mouth Teresa in front of her. I think Siggy’s in quite the pickle but if she can be friends with everyone than good for her.
Will Siggy’s friendship with Kim cause issues with Melissa and Teresa?
