AllAboutTRH Exclusive: Secrets From Behind the Scenes of the RHONJ S8 Reunion Revealed!

If you think fans saw all the drama on the recent Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion well it turns out there was a lot more going on behind the scenes that viewers didn’t get to see.

Now that the reunion is done and over with it’s time to spill all the behind the scenes reunion secrets!

The reunion taping was a stressful and grueling experience,” a source tells Life & Style. “The Housewives were required to watch a marathon of the whole season a day or two before the reunion, so some of them showed up on very little sleep and walked in very heated after seeing every confessional interview.”

Tempers were so flared that “the women were separated until they got onstage,” the source reveals, “so they could save their confrontations for the cameras.”

Taping stretched for more than 12 grueling hours but it turns out many of the most dramatic and interesting moments occurred when the cameras weren’t rolling.

On camera, Teresa seemed cool and collected when asked about divorce rumors and Joe’s possible deportation but apparently off camera it was a different story.

“But behind the scenes,” an insider says, “she was freaking out about it because the last thing Teresa wants to do is pull her four daughters out of school and drag everyone to Italy.”

And while it was well known that Siggy was leaving RHONJ she wouldn’t say the reason on camera.

Siggy had a breakdown over the show,” the insider reveals. “She says it was all too much for her.”

Now, back when the reunion filmed one of‘s RHONJ spies told us a few little secrets that we are finally ready to reveal.

“The night before the reunion, the RHONJ cast was forced to stay in a hotel on Long Island,” our source revealed.

The ladies spent the night getting ready for the next day’s drama and “producers even helped some of the Housewives prep for the reunion,” our spy explained, adding that everyone was “nervous.”

We were told that everyone was worried about Teresa’s dad, who was sick with pneumonia, and could tell she was “stressed” and “worried.”

The day of the reunion, everyone had to “put their phones away” out of fear that the “chaos and diva behavior” happening behind the scenes would be shared.

To wrap our spy told us that backstage “Siggy was acting like a nutcase.”

I think the RHONJ cameras should film the behind the scenes drama next season because it sounds like it’s super juicy.
