5 Things You Didn't See at the RHONJ Reunion
We're spilling all the behind-the-scenes details.
Fans got a ton of juicy information out of The Real Housewives of New Jersey two-part reunion. First, Teresa Giudice accused Jacqueline Laurita of calling the IRS on her, then Chris Laurita revealed he knows who really called the IRS, and Melissa Gorga told the truth about those nose jobs, but believe it or not, that wasn't everything. There were plenty of other things happening that viewers didn't get to see, and we're sharing all of the details now.
1Melissa and Teresa shared a dressing room.
If you ever wondered how genuine Melissa and Teresa's newfound bond is, the proof is in the reunion preparation. Not only is this the first reunion where the sisters-in-law sat on the same couch, but they even opted to share a green room together. It's a far cry from reunions past.
2It was hard on Joe Gorga when Melissa became a Real Housewife.
This season we watched Joe struggle with the fact that Melissa wanted to work outside the home. During the reunion he revealed he had the same struggle when his wife joined RHONJ, because it took her away from the home.
3Jacqueline clears up the rumors that she wasn't asked back for Season 6.
While some fans assume Jacqueline wasn't a Housewife last season because Bravo didn't want her to be, Jacqueline insisted that wasn't true. Andy Cohen also helped clear things up and said Jacqueline was asked back for Season 6, but she turned it down.
4The Housewives aren't the only ones who get emotional.
Fans see the Housewives exhibit a range of emotions during the reunion, but Andy isn't immune to it. When they played back the moment Teresa came home from prison, Andy started tearing up, along with people standing in the wings.
5There is a lot of shushing.
The amount of times you see Andy telling the ladies to be quiet is nothing compared to how many times he actually mediates. It's almost impossible to keep count. But really, are you surprised?
