RHONJ has a new feud in the garden state, and it involves the newbies! It started when Jakie Goldschneider insinuated that Jennifer Aydin spoils her children and questioned if her children will turn into humble adults. Any parent would take offense to this and Jennifer is no exception.
The mother of five spoke out via Twitter to clarify that yes, her children want for nothing but they are not spoiled brats:
“I spoil my children but they are Not spoiled!” she tweeted. “There’s a difference!”
Jennifer then went on to clarify she did not grow up affluent and this whole ‘having a lot of money thing’ is new to her:
“I love my kids, as does any mother. I have the ability to give them a life that I always wished I had — this is new to me, people! I didn’t come from this so sue me if it happens to be my joy to reward them. But they are generous, sweet and compassionate. And I’m very proud of them.”
I was on the fence regarding Jennifer before; however this feud has made me a fan. I love that she owned that she gives her kids everything and admits that she is learning as she goes along (like all mothers.) I don’t think anyone who is welcomed into a house in good faith should be secretly documenting and judging. Hopefully Jackie apologizes to Jennifer; however judging from her conversation with Margaret and Melissa it seems like a slim chance.
