Season 9 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is premiering tonight at 9 pm! Yay! So excited!
So, we thought what would be better than a little inside scoop into the season?! Nothing, absolutely nothing.
The singer turned boutique owner first opened up about the two new additions to the RHONJ – Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldschneider.
“I say both of them are so great for the show,” Melissa explains. “They are polar opposites which are really funny because they bring their own little pizzazz to the show. They have such different opinions on everything which I think is great. They are super fun to watch and super exciting. It is hard to mesh with us in Jersey and they do a really good job.”
As for the rumored blowups between her and Teresa during season 9, Melissa says “Yeah, you are going to see us disagree on a couple of things this season!”
However, Melissa says its the intense family aspect of RHONJ is what sets them apart from other Real Housewives franchises.
“We are family so it is a little bit more intense and the feelings are stronger with family and it is just so real. That is why people come back to us because we are intense. I always say we love hard and we fight hard. We are intense people and they love it. It’s real,” Melissa says.
Speaking of family drama, Melissa also reveals that she will get a lot more personal about her own family this season including her late father.
“You are going to see me open up a little bit more this season about my own life at home growing up as a child and some things that come about naturally as we start filming this season. I can’t say what they are but there are some things I find out about my father and I try to dig into it a bit more this season. My personal storyline gets pretty deep this season.”
Sounds like we’ve got a lot to look forward to this season! Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres tonight at 9 pm! I’ll be live tweeting RHOD and RHONJ tonight so make sure you follow AllAboutTRH and me, Lara Sophia, on Twitter!
