Jennifer Aydin certainly knows how to make gift-giving an unforgettable occasion. Not too long after we witnessed The Real Housewives of New Jersey newcomer give Jackie Goldschneider a "shady dagger," she called the necklace given to Teresa Giudice by the group "f--king ugly" after she found out the ladies didn't purchase it from her brother's jewelry store.
As one might expect, that statement made all jaws drop during the girls' trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, especially since no one was intentionally trying to snub Jennifer's brother, as Margaret Josephs, who organized the gift, explained during The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 After Show, above. "I don't even know Jennifer's brother, and she probably thought that we should give him the business," she said. "But I cleared it with her. She said she was gonna chip in for the necklace."
Jennifer said during the After Show that she agreed to chip in for the gift, not knowing that they would be buying jewelry for Teresa. Otherwise, she said she would have suggested they get it from her brother's store.
But she's not sorry for how things ultimately went down at that dinner in Cabo. "No, I don't regret saying it because in the heat of the moment, I was so angry that I wanted to make a point. I told Teresa afterwards I did not think it was ugly. It was a beautiful necklace. But I did want to make a point, and I thought that saying the necklace was ugly was the best way to do it," she explained. "I wasn't so upset that they didn't go to my brother to get the necklace; I was upset that they expected me to chip in when we could have given my brother the business."
So, did Jennifer end up chipping in for this most upsetting piece of jewelry? Press play on the above video to find out.
