tv guide



This hugely addictive reality show brings together some of New Jersey’s most glamorous and entertaining matriarchs, with tempers as fiery as their lip gloss. With a whiff of the Cosa Nostra and a shedload of hairspray, they fight, cry and compete with each other for dominance like a bunch of fabulously coiffed alley cats.

Oh, and gurlfriend, you better not say nuthin’ bad about these tough mudders unless you wanna find yourself in the Jersey river in a pair of concrete Jimmy Choos. That’s because the Real Housewives of New Jersey are the bold, brawlin’ bad-asses of the Real Housewives franchise.

In Seasons 2 and 3, it’s all about family, revenge, fashion shows, and social events that go badly wrong. In fact, there ain’t nothing going on but feuds and Italian food. Hide the breakables, because this is gonna get brilliantly nasty…

Watch out for:

  • The legendary reunion fight between Teresa and Danielle in Season 2 – ending in what can only be described as ‘JERSEYGEDDON.’
  • ‘It only takes one smack to the head to make a person never walk again.’ Says Danielle, conspicuously taking up boxing.
  • The Real Housewives Italian Vacation: ‘What happens in Italy stays in Italy.’ Barks Teresa. (If you’ve never felt sorry for a country before, you will now.)
  • Melissa’s son’s christening in Season Three, Episode One. Oh my GAWD, fists fights at Christenings are soooo classy. Someone pour Holy Water over them, quick…

Sometimes the RHoNJs are difficult to read. You may think they’re screaming at each other, with eyes popping wildly out of their heads and talons bared, but actually this most fascinating of species are carrying out subtle communication rituals that require careful Attenborough-esque interpretation. So here is a handy translation tool to help you figure out what they’re REALLY trying to say in Season 5.

How to dress like a Real Housewife of New Jersey

Elegant, classy and understated: three words RHONJ do not adhere to when choosing an outfit from their mammoth walk-in closets. And why is that a bad thing? Sure, French fashion editors looks great in simple tailoring in slate grey but could they pull off a dress combining leopard and zebra print? Can their eyes continue to blink with 4lbs of mascara and false eyelashes on them? And, most pertinently, do any of their evening gowns look like Daniel Swarovski sneezed on them? Being chic is great, but treading the fine line between tacky and insane is much more interesting so take a leaf out of the New Jersey ladies’ handbook and get a look fit for a queen from the great Garden State.

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY Should we express our feelings like a Real Housewife? By Amy Swales

Most of us can't even tell our hairdresser that the edgy 'do he just foisted on our head for an eye-watering price looks like someone pooed in a squirrel's drey (thanks, primary school knowledge) but the Real Housewives of New Jersey throw it all out there in truly jaw-dropping fashion. They have constant screaming matches, bitch freely and copiously, and – most shocking to those of us allergic to uncomfortable – actively instigate awkward discussions. How incredible would it be to go RHONJ-style in everyday situations if social etiquette, the threat of arrest and wanting to have any friends at all were no longer obstacles?

How would the girls get on if they were freed from the shackles of capitalism and found themselves trying out some low key alternatives?
