There are many, many decades of marriage between all of The Real Housewives of New Jersey couples. So that might be why RHONJ newbie/relationship expert Siggy Flicker vows you'll never, ever, ever see any of the ladies split from their significant others.
"I feel like — and I can say this for all the Jersey Housewives, and I hope that you play this over and over again — unlike any other franchise you're not gonna have divorce with the Jersey housewives," Siggy told The Daily Dish. "I have to tell people, I want to think about it like a car, because my husband is a car salesman, if you don't put gas in the car, the car's not gonna move from point A to point B," she added. "You can say, 'Oh, I'm married. I can just put my hair in a ponytail, put on my UGG slippers, sit on the couch, eat potato chips.' You got to maintain yourself. You got to keep the marriage alive and it's called work. Nothing in life that's worth it comes easy. You got to work at it."
Siggy's own relationship history is a bit colorful. She's currently married to her first husband's best man, Michael Campanella. And she has a very specific theory about making a marriage work. "It takes two to tango. You come together and you do for each other," the Write Your Own Fairy Tale: The New Rules for Dating, Relationships, and Finding Love On Your Own Terms author told us. "And I see that with Chris and Jacqueline [Laurita]. I see it with Melissa and Joe [Gorga]. I see it with Teresa and Joe [Giudice]. I see it with Kathy and Richie [Wakile]. I see it with Rosie [Pierri] and her girlfriend. And Dolores, Dolores is taking a dating detox."
Well, there is currently one single Jersey lady. Dolores Catania split from her ex-husband, Frank, 15 years ago and is now on strict orders from her pal to re-prioritize and put herself first when it comes to dating. "What was important for me with Dolores is for Dolores to know she's the biggest lottery ticket I've ever come across," Siggy explained. "I love Dolores. It's time for Dolores to know her worth."
