The Real Housewives of New Jersey returned for it’s eighth season that premiered on Wednesday, Oct. 4.

The full time cast features five women:

  • Teresa Giudice, who starred on this show in season one and is the only original Jersey housewife and she is known for having a strong personality and is not afraid of confrontation.
  • Melissa Gorga, Teresa’s sister-in-law, who joined in season three and is willing to deal with anymore who comes in between her business.
  • Dolores Catania, who is Teresa’s friend for more than 20 years, joins in season seven and she has several businesses which include a gym. She is sweet but can be a firecracker.
  • Siggy Flicker, a relationship expert, also joined in season seven along with Dolores, is known for fixing relationships and playing peacemaker among all the ladies.

Margaret Josephs, the new housewife, is introduced as Siggy’s Friend, is shown as a successful business and is not afraid to speak her mind and say how she feels.

There is a friend of the housewives, which is Danielle Staub, who originally starred in the first two seasons of RHONJ with Teresa, is known for bringing drama wherever she goes.

The season starts off with Teresa dealing with her mom’s death and her brother Joe Gorga, who is married to Melissa, is having a hard time as well.

Siggy proposes that they take a girls trip to Florida to help Teresa deal with the loss of her mom and they all agree.

The trip starts off with the women unpacking their bags and going to a restaurant that Siggy picked and she starts getting loud when arriving to the place they are eating at.

Danielle joins the women in Florida and the girls are shocked to see her and she gets along with them quickly and proposes a toast for her comeback.

She catches up with all of them and informs them about the latest news of Melissa’s enemy, Kim D., who is known for being an instigator and her infamous Posche fashion shows.

Melissa and Danielle both hate her but Siggy keeps on defending her and Melissa tells Siggy to watch her back because she feels like Kim is a snake and has no loyalty towards anyone.

Towards the middle of the episode, we finally get to meet Margaret and so far she is an awesome addition to the show.

All six women go eat to celebrate Melissa and Siggy surprises Melissa with a cake and Teresa decides to throw some cake at her, which shocks Siggy.

The episode ends with a cliffhanger of Siggy being upset with Teresa and Melissa for throwing a cake she made for Melissa.

This franchise is a must see for many people who are interested in drama, how the women interact with each other and the extravagant lifestyles.

The first episode of the season was brilliant and light-hearted that many viewers should watch and it is worth every minute of it.

These women are relatable in so many ways such as losing parents, dealing with marriages and other drama that the audience can understand.

Many viewers should expect many fights which leads to chair throwing, a trip to Italy and a lot more that will have the world surprised and shocked.

RHONJ is aired every Wed. at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
