Looking back at our Real Housewives franchises, there are often people we wonder about after they leave a show. Where did they go when their moment in the spotlight was over? What are they up to now? Each week, we'll be looking into the lives of one of these familiar faces. Today, it's Jennifer Dalton from The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
She was first introduced to Bravo viewers on Pregnant in Heels in 2012. A year later, RHONJ Season 5 viewers got to know Jennifer Dalton when the real-estate agent—who happened to also be a good friend of Teresa Giudice—tried to help Melissa and Joe Gorga sell their home.
But once the season got rolling, Jennifer turned into a magnet for drama. Her loyalty was questioned after she tattled to Melissa that Teresa's friend Jan had been spreading rumors that Melissa was cheating on Joe. And then there was her tense feud with nemesis Kim DePaola at the end of the season, when they nearly came to blows at Jennifer's Juvenile Diabetes charity event.
These days, Jennifer is still living in New Jersey where she works as a realtor for Prominent Properties Sothebys, but she's earned a new title since leave the show: She's godmother to her BFF Lil' Kim's daughter Royal Reign, who was born in June. "I've been helping her with everything—anything that she needs, I'm there," Jennifer told Us Weekly. "I go with her to the doctor's appointments, the ultrasounds, if she has cravings."
Lil' Kim—whom Jennifer lived with while she was going through a divorce last year—is also "a great godmother" to Jennifer's 2½-year-old daughter, Reign, she added.
When Jennifer isn't tweeting and posting Instagram shots of her beautiful toddler, she's working on her newest project: an "elegant, sophisticated and classy all the way around" fragrance called Jennifer By Delice, plus an all-natural face and body cleansing bar. She's launching the line with a party hosted by Mob WIves star Renee Graziano in New York City's Harlem neighborhood before the holidays.
