Certain people across The Real Housewives franchise like to talk about how often they get down with their spouse — but Jennifer Aydin is calling bulls--t.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom of five and husband Bill Aydin say they keep it real when talking about their sex lives. In fact, on a recent episode, Bill admitted they have sex once a month, which was definitely less often than a lot of the other couples were admitting to. In an interview with The Daily Dish podcast, Jennifer opened up more about their sex life and the decision to be honest about it.
"We don’t time it. So, I mean, I would say it’s on average like once or twice a month. But this is something that is not — this is not something that has always been. People have to realize it has evolved to this point," Jennifer explained. "The more kids we have, the less and less — and it’s not that we don’t want to. I mean sometimes we, like Bill and I, we make, we make a schedule. Like we’ll be like all right, babe, you know, I’m not gonna eat a lot tonight, you’re not gonna eat a lot tonight. We’ll put the kids to bed early and we make it date night. But then something will happen and Olivia took a late nap and she’s not going to bed anytime soon. And she sleeps with us. And then we just look at each other and he’s like, you know, we look at each other, like, with this apologetic look."
Jennifer reiterated, "It’s not because we don’t want to, it’s because we’ve got a whole s--t ton of c--k blockers at my house, honey."
But make no mistake: It's quality, not quantity, that counts. Melissa Gorga has previously said she and husband Joe Gorga have sex "three or four" times a week, and Joe claimed it's more like five times a week. But when Jennifer was asked on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen if she believes that claim, she replied, "Absolutely not."
In fact, she doesn't think that more frequent sex necessarily means a better relationship.
"That does not define a good marriage. There are marriages out there that could have the best sex every single day of their life and their partner is an a--hole, is a f--king dick," she said. "My husband is the whole package. He is my best friend. He is my support. He is my backbone. He’s there every time I need him. I mean, he will rearrange his schedule to film with me, when it is not his job. And every time he rearranges his schedule, he loses money. But he knows it’s important to me... So you’re defining my marriage based on the amount of sex that we have? That’s not because we don’t want to have sex. It’s because I have little children."
But Jennifer is actually working on a solution to keep the kids out of her bedroom, and get more alone time with her hubby. Plus, she shared how she keeps Bill satisfied when they don't have time for sex. For that, you'll have to tune in to the podcast above. And make sure to catch RHONJ every Wednesday at 8/7c.
