By Allison Crist

The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s charity softball game made its official return on Tuesday, March 14’s all-new episode.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Like she did in Season 12, Dolores Catania once again recruited her castmates to play softball and raise money for a good cause. Hitting the field this time were cast members Teresa GiudiceJennifer AydinMargaret JosephsMelissa GorgaRachel Fuda, and Danielle Cabral, friend Jackie Goldschneider, and several of their husbands and kids. 

See the whole group here, and keep reading to get a behind-the-scenes look at the softball game as well as a recap of some of the drama that went down during it.


Dolores may have been running the show, but she also had to deal with her ex-husband, Frank Catania, expressing his disappointment in the fact that they were growing apart. Thankfully, as she put it in the caption of her behind-the-scenes video, the game still ended up being “a home run.”


Jennifer was fortunate enough not to fall on her face this time around, but she did end up getting hurt when it was revealed that her daughter Olivia had told Rachel that she wants to be a couples therapist when she grows up. Reflecting on her husband Bill’s affair coming to light last season, Jennifer said, “I never spoke about this infidelity for this very exact reason. Why would I want them to know this about their dad?”

The Gorgas and Giudices

The ongoing drama between Teresa and Joe and Melissa put a slight damper on things, but Gia and Milania were ultimately able to spend some time bonding with their cousin Joey.

Rachel and Jackie

Rachel and Jackie didn’t run into any trouble on the field, but they did find themselves in an awkward pre-game conversation when Danielle and Margaret began discussing what Jennifer and Teresa had allegedly said about Margaret.

Brittany, Melissa, and Rachel

Also in attendance at the game? Frank’s girlfriend, Brittany Mattessich. She made her RHONJ debut on the Season 13 premiere, during which Dolores confirmed that Brittany has her approval. “I love Brittany,” she said. “They’ve dated back and forth over the years, and they’re just a really great couple for each other.”
