Jennifer Aydin's birthday proved to be plenty sweet, even amid self-quarantine. The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom got roses and a bottle of champagne from her husband, Bill; her daughter, Olivia, made her a heart-inspired cake. And later, after her family made a contact-free delivery of homemade sweets, the mother of five got a taste of the treat she can't resist.
On her April 16 Instagram Stories, the Jersey beauty, who's recovering from the coronavirus (COVID-19), said: "I'll let you guys in on a little secret: When this quarantine s--t all started happening, I started to gain some weight — like almost five pounds — because we were just eating all day. And then once I lost my sense of taste, that went out the door. But now that it's coming back, I feel a problem coming on. I feel that now that my taste buds are back, I'm going to be eating a lot more and more, which is, like the danger zone."
Later, she clued us in on a particularly dangerous treat. Zooming in on a plate of brownies that her sister Tina had brought by, Jennifer said: "Homemade brownies [are] my weak spot. I think I'm about to gain back the weight I lost." She added to her daughter Olivia: "Mommy just needs to take one bite. Just one." With an ice-cold glass of milk, of course.
