We've seen a lot of parties on The Real Housewives of New Jersey over the years, but never anything quite like this.
Teresa Giudice hosted a pool party at her home in the March 17 episode of RHONJ, and let's just say that Jennifer Aydin definitely had the best time out of all of the attendees. The New Jersey Housewife memorably imbibed during the bash, earning her the nickname "Tequila Jennifer."
You may be surprised to learn that Jennifer was actually looking forward to watching this episode back. "You know, I was really eager to see it play back because I don't remember anything after going into the pool for tequila pong," she said during her March 17 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "The only thing I remember after tequila pong was what I thought was an out-of-body experience when they were carrying me, and I just saw the sky moving on top of me. But I realize now that they were just carrying me to the car."
Jennifer also responded to Margaret Josephs' concerns about her drinking in the episode on WWHL. "I mean, seeing it from the outside looking in, I appreciate that she was really concerned. After the fact — you'll see how it plays out — it didn't come across that way, but I do see that she's concerned," she said. "And I get it. But that was like a one-time thing."
Related to that, one fan asked Jennifer on WWHL, "Jennifer, last season we saw your husband get drunk and everyone thought it was hilarious. This season, we see it happen to you, and some of the ladies think your behavior is awful. Is there a double standard in the group?"
"First of all, if you've seen any of that footage, that s--t was hilarious, OK?" Jennifer replied. "And yes, there is a double standard. Mine was much better."
Margaret explained why she was worried about Jennifer at the pool party during The Real Housewives of New Jersey After Show. "I didn't want her to get hurt, and I didn't want her to have alcohol poisoning, and I don't want to see any woman like that," she said. "The other girls were laughing, and it's not laughing with her; it's laughing at her."
Jennifer's husband, Bill Aydin, said in the RHONJ After Show that he was surprised by his wife's behavior at the pool party. "It's one that I wanted to forget," Bill said of the event. "I honestly did not see it coming. You know, what happened was, in the beginning, we're all hanging out having sips of drinks, which is good, and then I knew that when she went in the pool, they were doing shots. I didn't realize they were tequila shots."
Dolores Catania said in the RHONJ After Show that Jennifer "almost threw up in the pool" at one point. And when Bill drove his wife back home in his Ferrari convertible, no one was sure if she'd be able to make it home without getting sick. "I did have to get a full detail," Bill shared in the RHONJ After Show.
"I didn't throw up in the Ferrari — at first. At first, I didn't," Jennifer added. "A little bit came up, and it was on the seat belt. I actually took one for the team and threw up on myself and my Chanel bathing suit, all to avoid throwing up in the car."
Jennifer went into more detail about the aftermath of Teresa's pool party during a recent interview with ET. "I threw up that night, like, four times," she recalled. "And the first time I threw up was when [my husband] Bill had pulled out of [Teresa Giudice's] house, I threw up on the side of the road and [Margaret Josephs] told me how she was driving past me. And she's like, ‘Oh my god, I felt so bad. You were throwing up on the side of the car,’ and my first instinct was, did you get it on camera? ‘No, I thought about it, but I didn't want to do it to you.’ And I was like, no b***h, that is TV gold, honey! You get it on camera and let's show everybody."
However, Margaret was able to capture a gorgeous group photo of the RHONJ crew at the pool party, referencing her iconic "your husband's in the pool" moment from Season 9.
Jennifer also shared a fun moment from the pool party on Instagram in which she can be seen putting her own twist on the Luann de Lesseps classic "Money Can't Buy You Class." She even revealed her one regret about the pool party: "not getting a spray tan."
