The Real Housewives of New Jersey kicks off its 8th season on Thursday 5th October on hayu, reality on demand.
The Garden State girls are back with a 75-minute supersized premiere. Returning housewives for the new season are Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, and Siggy Flicker.
The ladies will be joined by new housewife Margaret Josephs who runs her own global lifestyle brand. The self-proclaimed “powerhouse in pigtails” shakes everything up when she arrives so expect plenty of fireworks.
This season the women are faced with new trials and tribulations that test their close-knit friendships. In the midst of their newfound familial peace, Melissa is thrown a curve ball when Joe and Teresa decide to open a family restaurant without consulting her.
Dolores has finally found the man of her dreams, but when her ex-husband asks to move back home, it jeopardizes her own romantic future. After finding overwhelming success with her book and speaking engagements, Siggy decides it’s time to take her career to the next level. Ironically, this causes relationship issues of her own as her husband questions her commitment to work-life balance.
Meanwhile, as Teresa comes to terms with life as a single parent with Joe in prison, her world becomes further fractured by the heart-breaking and sudden death of her mother. The dynamic of the group gets thrown off-course when Danielle Staub re-enters the picture after years of total absence, threatening a 20-year friendship between Teresa and Dolores.
Tensions rise even more between Siggy and new housewife Margaret on a ladies trip to Boca, forcing all of the ladies to quickly choose sides. After years of rebuilding old relationships and establishing new ones, will these women rise above the obstacles thrown at their friendships, or will they realize that some bonds are, in fact, meant to be broken?
