Season 11 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres in less than a week, and Jackie Goldschneider just dropped a major tease about what fans can expect from the emotional new season, including why she needed to take "a step back" during the season.
“These shows are about our real lives right? I have a situation that I've never been in before in my entire life; something very dramatic and very trying. If you had an explosive fight with another woman, would you go on vacation with her the next day? I had to step back a little bit, because that was authentic to me, and that's what I would do in my real life, and the show is about my real life. So yes, I took a step back and I had to evaluate, based on what was going on, whether this was the place for me anymore. It's really interesting to see how me and my husband together made the decision whether or not to come back, and really the way we got through everything," she told LIT Entertainment News this week.
She continued, "So yes, I did have to take a minute and just be with my family and evaluate whether this group of women was for me anymore.”
In a trailer released last month, above, viewers were treated to a preview of Season 11 and, it definitely teased an interesting season for the cast. In a press release about the new season, some of what Jackie is referring to was also teased as she deals with new drama in the group that leads her to "[question] her relationships with the women. Will she be able to move forward, or will she decide that her fate lies with a new circle of friends?
Still, her tagline makes it clear she has what it takes to tackle anything: “I may be cut from a different cloth, but it’s top quality fabric.”
Season 11 premieres on Wednesday, February 17 at 9/8c. Check out the rest of the cast's taglines, below.
