UPDATED (June 7, 9:47 A.M.): After sharing in March that she and Dr. Bill Aydin had not been back to couple's therapy since attending a session early on in Season 13, Jennifer Aydin confirmed during Part 2 of the RHONJ Season 13 reunion that they have no plans to resume counseling.  

How to Watch

"I gotta say, that one therapy session did wonders for both of us," Jennifer said. "Things have been so great between us that I'm just, like, not gonna push it."

She added that the two have begun to spend more time together, and though Bill still retreats to the pool house from time to time, Jennifer now has a better understanding as to why. "He explained the pool house to me," she began. "He said, 'Look, Jen, I'm all day with patients. I'm on, on, on. When I walk into the house, I know there's you, there's a nanny, there's your dad, there's four kids, now there's a dog. I need to unwind a little bit.' And I have to say, I've been using the pool house a lot at night, and now we just hang out there together."

Ultimately, Jennifer said she's "so happy" and "wouldn't trade [Bill] in for anything."

The original story continues below.

During Season 13 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Jennifer Aydin and her husband Dr. Bill Aydin have been taking fans inside their marriage like they never have before.

The Aydins have not only given fans an inside look as they go to counseling, but in a first look at the March 21 episode of RHONJ, Jennifer and Bill also have an intense conversation as they continue to take "small steps" amid the ups and downs of their marriage. They also reveal how it's all affected their family.

In the preview for next Tuesday's episode, above, the couple sits down for a status update on how they are feeling about the work they are putting into their relationship. Jen wants to know what Bill thinks of their therapist, Dr. Judy. "I think she was very insightful," he said.

However, Jennifer notes he was "silent" during their time with her, and he explains why in the clip above. In the moment, Jennifer notes there are things "unsaid" between them (fans will recall their past marriage struggles became a hot topic during Season 12).

"We keep pretending everything's OK when it's not," she told him during their heart-to-heart. In an interview featured in the episode, she notes that while trying to have these conversations it drives her "nuts" when he gets overly analytical and she thinks he uses that as a way to not open up.
