With weeks to go until it officially hits the airwaves (May 12, 11 p.m. ET), Bravo offered a taste of the drama to come on The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Tuesday night. And although it was just a sneak peek, there was already talk of boob jobs, phone sex, strip clubs, plenty of extravagant cars, clothes and even an overturned dinner table.
Could this be the most out of control Housewives series yet?
It doesn’t hurt that many castmates are related this season: Caroline and Dina — sisters who are married to brothers — and their sister-in-law, Las Vegas transplant Jacqueline, are all in the mix. While redheaded Caroline seems to relish her role as the bossy, brassy one, she tells us that her younger sister Dina also frequently snaps into “b—- mode” when she’s toiling away at her job as an interior designer and event planner. Dina’s best moment, though, may have been outside of work, while she was just hanging at home with her teen daughter. Sweetly, her daughter looks at the camera and says how much she loves her mom. Why? Because she’s pretty and not, you know, old and fat.
Even more outrageous, newly divorced Danielle, a friend of Jacqueline’s, and the self-professed “outsider” of the group was looking for a man to rescue her — and her two kids — from financial turmoil. Her solution? Hit the Internet and date a younger guy named “Gucci Model.” Before stepping out with him on their first date, Danielle admitted her online lover was good at one thing: phone sex! And in the category of egregious admissions, Danielle boasted that she had been engaged 19 times (!) and had a Black American Express card before Madonna.
Last but not least, there was Teresa, who kicked off the mini-episode bemoaning her modest bust. While she wasn’t convinced she needed a boob job — she says flat-out her hubby is an “ass man” — she nevertheless broaches the subject of cosmetic surgery over dinner … in front of a waiter and her young children. So, it would appear that surgery is in her future.
