On Thursday, Teresa Giudice, Jacqueline Laurita, Melissa Gorga, Siggy Flicker, and Dolores Catania gathered together, along with host Andy Cohen, to film the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 7 reunion show. Earlier Thursday morning, Bravo released the seating chart for the reunion. The chart shows that Melissa and Teresa sat on one couch with Teresa closest to Andy. On the other couch sat Jacqueline, Siggy, and Dolores, with Jacqueline closest to Andy.
As and after the reunion show filmed, some of the cast members and well as the host posted photos of and reactions to the big day.
Teresa posted a photo of herself in her hotel room with a production executive getting ready for the reunion.Teresa's sister-in-law posted a photo of herself with her makeup and hair team. Melissa described the reunion filming as a "loonnnggg day" and expressed hope that viewers will enjoy watching. it. Jacqueline posted a photo of herself on the reunion show set with Siggy, Dolores, and the production executive. The photo shows that Dolores wore a shimmering gold dress, Siggy a low-cut gray and silver dress, and Jacqueline an off-the-shoulder green dress with a high slit. All three women wore their hair down in loose waves. Jacqueline Laurita also posted a photo of everyone filming the reunion show, giving people a full view of Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice. Melissa wore a short white dress while Teresa wore a black bustier mermaid gown. While Melissa chose a straighter hairstyle, Teresa went for curled hair. Andy wore a blue suit and blue striped tie. The photo was apparently taken during a lighter moment of the show, and it shows everyone smiling at something Siggy is saying. The set was decorated in a silver and gold toned theme with some pops of color and contrasting patterns. Befitting a cast with several members who have professed their love of all things leopard-print, there is a giant leopard-print rug on the floor. As for what Jacqueline thought of the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 7 reunion show, she called it "shocking, bizarre, and AMAZING all at the same time."
Siggy Flicker actually brought something along with her to the reunion show to help her get through it. She re-tweeted a photo that shows her cooling herself with a fan during filming as Dolores Catania humorously looks on.Did Siggy bring the fan along in order to cool herself down while talking about the season's more dramatic moments? As viewers saw on the last episode, Siggy, while talking in a confessional interview about the disastrous Vermont trip, during which Jacqueline, after fighting with Robyn Levy, then got into a very nasty argument with Melissa and Teresa, had to pull out a small fan. She confessed that talking about what happened made her so heated with anger and frustration.
Prior to the big day, Siggy, whom viewers have watched cry numerous times from all of the show's drama, confessed to the blog 10ThoughtsBlog that she's terrified of filming the reunion.
"I'm so nervous. I just want it to be tomorrow. I'm so scared. I'm so scared."It was also the first reunion show for Dolores. How did Dolores do? In response to a viewer who expressed excitement over watching it, Dolores said that it was "an Amazon." Also at the reunion show were some of the husbands. A show producer posted a photo that shows Melissa's husband, Joe Gorga, and Jacqueline's husband, Chris Laurita, sitting behind their wives.Did Teresa and Joe's cousins, Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri, also film the reunion show. Despite the fact that Kathy and Rosie's attempts at reconciling with Teresa, and Teresa's rejection of them, have been a major storyline this season, it doesn't seem that they made an appearance. On Thursday, Kathy was on her way to Toronto, Canada. Rosie, whose appearances on the show usually also include Kathy, didn't post anything about the reunion show on her social media accounts. On the season 6 reunion show, Teresa walked off the set as Kathy and Rosie tried to talk about their family drama. Surprisingly, Teresa is now open to reconciling with Kathy and Rosie, albeit not now, but a few years down the road. As the Inquisitr reported, Teresa wrote in her latest blog that she might work on her relationships with Kathy and Rosie in a few years time, since they are family, when she has the energy to do so.
Host and executive producer Andy Cohen also gave revealed something about the reunion show. In response to someone who asked him how it went, Andy said that it was "super dramatic" but also had some funny moments.[Featured Image by Bravo]
