Warning! The following contains spoilers for the Real Housewives of New Jersey episode "Cleaning The Heir." Read at your own risk!
The cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey went to the Hamptons for a relaxing girls trip, but of course, things couldn't be that simple. Drama was brewing from the moment everyone stepped through the door, and really reached a boiling point at a restaurant where utensils were hurled almost as far as insults. Who would've thought such drama could manifest over pizza being served at a birthday party?
The Real Housewives of New Jersey fans are confused by Jennifer Aydin's jabs at Jackie Goldschneider. Things got real between the two when word reached Jackie, who asked Jennifer what her problem was about pizza being served at her child's birthday party. Many on Twitter had the same question, and didn't know quite what Jennifer expected.
Most children would kill to have their friends over for pizza and cake on their birthday, but to be fair, that wasn't really the point Jennifer Aydin was making. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was using the pizza as an example that Jackie Goldschneider threw a party that was well below what she could afford to do.
There were more than a few people who thought it was completely fine that Jackie Goldschneider threw a pizza party, though Jennifer Aydin had some defenders as well. If the Real Housewives of New Jersey star really is as wealthy as she revealed, why was she being stingy with money?
Jackie Goldschneider may not spend as much as the other New Jersey housewives, but that's okay. At least, that's what Melissa Gorga said as she rose to Goldschneider's defense. As Gorga said, spending less on a child's birthday party now is money they may have 30 years from now to forge their own way in the world.
The elephant in the room that really started the whole fight was that Jennifer Aydin was consumed with Jackie Goldschneider's wealth, as Goldschneider lived a lifestyle which Aydin considered to be frugal. While the snide comments kept raining in, many were in agreement that it really wasn't Aydin's business what Goldschneider does with her money.
Truth be told, this felt like a standard Real Housewives of New Jersey fight until Jennifer launched some utensils at Melissa Gorga. It was then the battle lines were drawn, but as is the case with most reality television, the credits rolled just as things were about to get good.
It was a small taste of what's to come next week, and The Real Housewives of New Jersey fans are already all about it. Jennifer Aydin going to war over a pizza party with Jackie Goldschneider and Melissa Gorga is the kind of twist that defines a season, and could carry on long after that.
Unfortunately, The Real Housewives of New Jersey is almost done for Season 10, and sometimes even the fiercest drama can fade between seasons. This fight has the makings of something different, however, mainly because Melissa Gorga inserting herself into the drama added an extra layer of depth to the madness.
Jennifer Aydin will eventually see the episodes, and when she does, she'll know Melissa Gorga wasn't just sticking up for a friend out of the goodness of her heart. Gorga had some thoughts on Aydin running her mouth so much during the episode in general, and attributed her obsession with money with the fact that being wealthy is new to her.
There are still some episodes left in Season 10, though, so it's not impossible this whole situation will be worked out. Of course, it could also bleed into future episodes, and be one of those infamous fights that constantly comes up time and time again. All we know right now is the drama on The Real Housewives of New Jersey is at a peak, and things are getting good.
