Bravo launched The Real Housewives of New Jersey in 2009, and the world was instantly captivated by five New Jersey housewives' fabulously glamorous lives, but the show hasn't been as thrilling for the past few seasons. Bravo's fourth installment of the Real Housewives franchise, featuring Teresa Giudice, Caroline Manzo, Dina Manzo, Danielle Staub, and Jacqueline Laurita, was well received by viewers. In all the franchise's installments, the show's scenes were some of its most entertaining and memorable.
There have been numerous moments of entertainment throughout season one, including Teresa's table flip and Danielle tearing Margaret's hair in season ten. The family drama took a turn for the worse when Teresa's brother Joe and sister-in-law Melissa joined the cast. Sibling rivalry took on a whole new meaning as punches were thrown, harsh words were hurled, and harsh words were hurled. It was a pleasure to watch the juicy drama between the siblings on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as well as their journey to make amends. Teresa's emotional departure from the courtroom capped off the action. She was now ready to serve her prison sentence.
RHONJ's seasons have been the shortest in the franchise over the years, and many fans wanted to know why. As a result of a metaphorical revolving door, the show has gone through a range of ups and downs, welcoming controversial wives as well as more popular RHONJ stars. This past May, however, season twelve ended, so audiences are wondering how long this show will last. To meet the twelve-episode mark, the producers are grasping at straws.It remains a somewhat entertaining show with the women giving fans their weekly dose of shadiness and class. In recent seasons, there have only been twelve to thirteen episodes, not including reunion episodes. In addition, the season ends just as the drama reaches its climax. In each episode, the drama builds, but nothing is resolved at the end. Despite the producer's best efforts, there will still be a lot to discuss before the RHOBH reunion.
There are powerful storylines, such as Jackie's battle with her eating disorder, and juicy, drama-filled arcs, such as Margaret and Teresa's confrontation in Nashville during season twelve, but it appears the series' producers are unsure how the women should contribute to the series' evolution. It is only in the final episodes of each season that these plotlines are discussed, and so much is left unsaid. Some fans wonder if the show needs to be rebranded, as some housewives are leaving the show due to a lack of entertainment value.
It's quite a letdown that there isn't enough quality content to fill out each episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which remains one of the best shows in the Real Housewives franchise. It is hard for fans to identify with wives like Melissa and Margaret, but they still love the original New Jersey housewife, Teresa, along with Jennifer Aydin and Dolores Catania, who bring a lot more to the table. It might be time for the women to take a break so that the producers can regroup and make plans for the future. It is hoped that those plans will include a facelift.
