The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 reunion has come to a close, and we got a lot of the answers we were hoping for from the cast. There was a lot of back and forth between the 'Wives and they either made up or simply agreed to disagree on a ton of topics from throughout the season.
Although the reunion was jam packed with questions and explanations (we just love a three-part reunion), there were some things going on behind-the-scenes that we didn't get to see. From shady moments to shocking revelations, here is everything you missed!
1. A Returning Jersey 'Wife?
At the reunion, all of the RHONJ ladies were asked which former cast member they would bring back to the show. Dolores Catania's vote was for Caroline Manzo, which caused Teresa Giudice to chuckle. Teresa picked the twins from the sixth season, Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano, then switched her answer to longtime friend Dina Manzo. Melissa Gorga and Jackie Goldschneider agreed on Caroline as well, causing Teresa to say, "Oh yeah, I don't care. I like a good fight."
2. What Teresa Thinks of Jax Taylor
Andy Cohen brought up the topic of BravoCon 2019 and all of the ladies shared their best moments from the event. During that segment, Teresa shared her thoughts on a specific Vanderpump Rules cast member: Jax Taylor. "I sat next to Jax. He's really cool," she said, adding, "But you know, he seems, like, quiet in person. Like, he seems more out there on the show." However, Jax wasn't the only Bravoleb the Jersey 'Wives chatted about during the reunion. Check out the playlist above to find out who else the ladies talked about meeting for the first time.
3. Danielle's Promise
Backstage, Danielle Staub was asked if it was hard to leave the show now, after knowing the other ladies for so long. The Jersey OG replied, "No. Absolutely not. It makes it actually important — imperative — that I step away," adding, "I will never — when I say never — I will never film with the ladies that are in the existing cast right now. I won't. I just won't do it." Although she seemed to be done with the current RHONJ cast, she mentioned that she would be open to filming in another city...
4. The Jackie and Jennifer Beef
Jennifer took a moment backstage before the reunion to reveal that she didn't find Jackie nor her money impressive. "I'd rather be a role model like me, as opposed to her, any day of the week," the RHONJ mom said. Jackie had some strong words of her own to share before the reunion, and so did the rest of the cast. You can see it all in the playlist above.
5. Frank's Pre-Reunion Text to Dolores
The entire cast shared any advice they were given before heading into the reunion. Dolores revealed that both ex-husband Frank Catania and boyfriend David Principe texted her the same message that morning: "You're beautiful." Frank actually flipped the script and explained that it's usually Dolores who gives him advice and that she's good at remaining calm on stage.
6. Melissa's Reunion Prep
The businesswoman disclosed that she actually used to write down notes and read through them during breaks at her first reunion, just because she was so passionate about the drama surrounding her family at the time. Fast forward to today, and Melissa explained, "Now, I'm 40 and I give zero f--ks about anything. I shouldn't say about anything, I should say about what people think. So, I'm just going to answer it the way I want to answer it — authentic — and speak my truth, and if no one likes it, not my problem." Sounds like a pretty solid plan to us.
But wait, there's more! Check out the videos in the playlist above to watch all the behind-the-scenes moments you didn't see during the Season 10 reunion!
