How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

“Today would have been Jan’s 75th birthday, he passed away unexpectedly last week and a piece of us died with him,” she wrote in an Instagram tribute on Monday, September 5, also sharing a photo of her ex-husband. “We are heartbroken. The night before he left us we shared a beautiful conversation of how blessed we are, our children all successful and happy, and that we could only brag to each other. We spoke every day, he was my family. Jan was an amazing father, grandfather, friend, partner to his girlfriend, he loved everyone unconditionally, he loved Motown, working out and Italian food, but most of all he loved his family. I chose this photo not only because it was one of his favorites but because he had a youthful spirit and will be forever young. Happy Birthday my angel.”

Margaret has not only spoken about her marriage to Jan over the years on RHONJ, but he also appeared on the show in Season 8 and the pair shared an emotional moment.

After sharing the sad news of his passing, Margaret received messages of support from across the Bravo family, including Dolores Catania, Melissa Gorga, Joe Gorga, Jackie Goldschneider, Dorinda Medley, and more.
