The cast of the Real Housewives of New Jersey got together this week for the taping of the Season 9 reunion, and an insider says that Teresa Giudice “really went after” newcomer Jackie Goldschneider. The RHONJ vet didn’t cut the newbie any slack since the two women have been at odds for most of the season.
In an earlier Season 9 episode, the 42-year-old Goldschneider brought up Joe Giudice’s prison sentence when defending Melissa Gorga to Teresa, and that caused a rift. We thought that they got past it and mended things over coffee when Goldschneider explained to Giudice that she thought she was a strong woman, and if a woman was able to control her husband’s actions, there is no way she would have let things happen the way they did.

Goldschmidt also said that she didn’t mean to hurt Giudice, and then she apologized.
But according to Page Six, the truce didn’t last.
“Teresa went hard,” says an insider. “Jackie stood her ground. The picture that came out on social media of Jackie at Teresa’s book signing was a big conversation.”
The source also explained that the ladies thought Goldschneider being a fan of the show before she joined the cast may have tainted some of her opinions.
Another point of contention was Goldschneider’s local news article about Jennifer Aydin spoiling her kids. There was a ton of fighting at the reunion, but it wasn’t just Goldschneider who was on the hot seat.
Sisters-in-law Giudice and Gorga push each other’s buttons, and Danielle Staub and Margaret Josephs discuss their fallout. Josephs also has a heated exchange with Aydin over Josephs’ comments about Aydin’s lifestyle and her brother-in-law’s engagement.
This all resulted in the Season 9 taping being the most “aggressive” RHONJ reunion so far.

Another topic the women discussed with host Andy Cohen was Staub’s wedding and divorce just a few months later.
According to the Daily Dish, the seating chart for the RHONJ Season 9 reunion was from left to right: Goldschneider, Gorga, Josephs, Giudice, Dolores Catania, and Aydin. Of course, Cohen is in the middle of it all.
Teresa Giudice has not commented on the rumors surrounding the RHONJ reunion.
New episodes of Real Housewives of New Jersey air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
