Season 11 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey has been full of DRAMA! So, we were happy to sit down with RHONJ star Jennifer Aydin to dish on ALL the drama!
Jennifer chatted with AllAboutTRH founder Roxanne Jajo for the latest episode of our AllAboutTRH podcast, and she didn’t HOLD back!
Let’s dive into the drama and find out what tea Jennifer is spilling.
To start, Jennifer discusses Melissa Gorga’s recent claim that she threw her mom “under the bus” by airing their family drama on the show.
“Says the woman who spoke to her fifteen-year-old about losing her virginity on camera…okay right, right, yes you know we shouldn’t talk about those who live in glass houses,” Jennifer said. “I think it’s funny because you know what anybody who doesn’t understand family in the traditional sense of the word they may not understand that I’m all about my family – my social life consists of the people from our community. I do have a small circle of what Bill and I like to call our ‘American friends.’We love them; we love hanging out with them, but it’s two different vibes.”
Speaking of Melissa and Jennifer’s hot and cold relationship, Jennifer also reveals if she thinks she and Melissa will ever be friends.
“I mean, we get on good terms. But let’s say the show ended – I don’t think she would really continue a friendship with me. Whereas if the show ended, I think Dolores, Teresa, and I would still carry on that friendship,” she confessed.
She also dished on Margaret Josephs constantly dissing her throughout season 11, including Margaret mocking her for buying clothes on Amazon, calling her tone-deaf, and saying she’s not the poster child for stay-at-home moms.
“Show me a stay-at-home mom that has the means that I do and has five kids and doesn’t have help. I feel like it’s nonexistent, and if people out there could do it…fine, and I can do it, but I don’t want to do it anymore,” Jennifer explained.
“She is so far from what a typical housewife would be,” she continues. “I like to mix and match and I know you understand this like we can put on an outfit that we got on Amazon and jazz it up with some gorgeous jewelry, make your hair killer, Louboutins and Chanel bag, and you gotta love it. [For Teresa’s pool party] I didn’t want to be walking around in a bathing suit because, quite honestly, I’m not comfortable like that. I feel more comfortable with a sarong or a wrap or something, and I was like where am I going to find a royal blue chiffon kimono? And literally, I went to Amazon, and I wrote ‘blue chiffon bathrobe Komodo,’ and that’s what came up, and it was like, I don’t know what it was like, thirty bucks or something. I liked it! I got it in every color. So yeah, I heard her talk about it a couple of times, and I’m like, I don’t get it? What’s wrong with going on there? I see so many people in these – so many lawyers with these types of clothes. Margaret is just coming for me. You know when people have no content? Or they have nothing else to do, and they want to make themselves relevant?”
When asked whether she wants to see anyone else join the cast, Jennifer had a lot to say.
“I’m having a lot of fun & I’m pretty confident. I wouldn’t mind if they added to the bunch so you know Margaret can concentrate on someone else as a target. She really has no other target but me. When she found out Teresa was behind the hair pulling, she gave her a f–king pass, which is great. I’m happy for Teresa but trust me, if that had been me..she would never. They treat me differently,” she said.
