RHONJ Episode 4 Recap: Teresa Giudice Is Tired Of Her Castmates, Storms Off After Luis Ruelas Rumors Surface

The latest episode of RHONJ picked up with a cliffhanger. The ladies are at Jackie’s ‘frat party’ and in typical ‘frat’ fashion there was a “whose dick is bigger” argument. Well…in this case whose loyalty is bigger: Jacki vs Dolores. Don’t tell Jacki, but I think Dolores won. 


Disclaimer: Teresa was in Boston as the ladies gathered at Jackie’s event, otherwise this night might have gone down differently, but keep reading as her return is explosive. 


Dolores is upset that Jackie would go behind her back and tell Jennifer that she doesn’t think Dolores has been the kind of friend that Jennifer needs. “I’ve known Dolores since she was 19 years old,” says Frank Catana, “Dolores grew up on the streets of Patterson; she’s a street fighter.” He even goes on to say that she once got into a fight in a bar and bit through two of a girl’s nails. Dolores takes her beef and moves over to Jennifer for not speaking up about her feelings towards her. Dolores has told the ladies that she called it quits with David, her boyfriend of the last few years, so that might explain her reaction. 


The beef then moves onto Margaret and Jennifer as they have a one-on-one conversation. “I don’t want to have issues with you, but you had a double standard. You crucified me for it,” says Margaret. Jennifer is adamant it’s not the same. Margaret responds, “it is the same, your husband was like me.” Referring to the fact that she was unfaithful in her first marriage, just as Bill was unfaithful to Jennifer 10 years ago. “Okay that’s fair,” says Jennifer. 


This might be the closest we’ve gotten to an apology from Jennifer since her crusade against Margaret, where she slut shamed her relentlessly for a year. 


Margaret is up there with housewives who are considered trustworthy narrators but she may have missed the mark while Jennifer was explaining that she’s part of the Syrian Orthodox community. Jennifer goes on to say that they all know her husband Bill. “I don’t want him to be humiliated, my family’s name, it’s my in-laws, they’re going to blame me for everything.” She wouldn’t be surprised if they thought it was her fault for being a bad wife, if she wasn’t sleeping with him enough. For now this conversation between the two foes has been put to bed.


Trigger warning: eating disorder coming up


In a previous episode we saw Jackie having an honest conversation with her husband Evan about her eating disorder. Jackie says her eating is so ritualized. Which leads one to wonder if old habits really do die hard? Evan admits that her children have been noticing her eating patterns lately, and they’ve even asked “why is mom eating the same dinner every night?” The most tearful moment was when Jackie says “I’m afraid i”m going to relapse and kill myself, I just don’t want to do this anymore.” 


A round of applause to Jackie for being brave enough to share her story,  and to her husband Evan for being so incredibly supportive. Later on we see Jackie seek help as she visits The Renfrew Center, expert eating disorder treatment. Below you can find a link to locations across the US. 


Dolores’ family are all about to be under one roof, for the first time, so they’ve called a family meeting to set ground rules, including but not limited to no girls, for Frank senior. Dolores’ family might just be one of my favorite family dynamics across any housewife franchise. Her ex-husband Frank, aka her best friend, father to her children, who in fact did not raise them, nor live with them, is actually moving in with them for the first time, as grown adults. You really can’t make this stuff up, and I am here for it. 


At Jennifer’s shore house we see Jennifer recap Teresa about the frat party last weekend. This is our first time really hearing from Jennifer’s mouth that Dolores has not been a friend to her. And in an awkward moment Teresa suggests that the BBQ should be moved from Teresa’s house to Jennifer’s backyard. The look on Jennifer’s face says it all. Could this be Teresa stirring the pot or protecting her boyfriend from the cameras?

Luis Ruelas Video That Is Talked About During The Season


My favorite line while at the beach comes when Margaret describes Luis: “He is charming, he’s good looking. So is a car salesman.” And then Margaret’s husband says “Sometimes when there’s that much smoke there’s gotta be some fire.” 


The couple that shades together stays together.


Dolores finds Jackie’s newfound friendship with Jennifer suspicious. She reveals that at Teresa’s pool party Jackie had some nasty words to say about Jennifer’s husband, bill. According to Dolores, Jackie said “I don’t care he shouldn’t have stuck his dick in someone else.”


Teresa says that Luis won’t make it to the beach because of traffic, but after what we find out, he might have arrived late on purpose. 


Back at the shore house Teresa gets a call from Luis where he says “he’s a few minutes away” then he follows with “I just want to get out of here”. Teresa gasps and says “why? I’m mic’d.” Luis tells her to turn it off. Shortly after Melissa gets a text from Teresa and she reads it to the group. According to Melissa, Teresa instructed them to not say a word (we can only imagine she’s referring to the video circulating about Luis) , do the right thing and to back up her boyfriend. 


The episode ends with every viewers dream: A fourth wall break


Producer: Teresa…

Teresa: What happened with Luis?

Producer: We talked to him in the parking lot, and he’s all upset. Did he talk to you about it?

Teresa: No (we know this is a lie because of the text she had sent Melissa)

Producer: I think he feels like everyone is talking about him, and he wants to know why.

Teresa: I told him not to come around if he feels like that. He does not deserve this; he does not have to prove anything.

Producer: Here’s the thing, the story’s out there 

Teresa: (raising her voice) I don’t want to discuss it. They’re not happy for us, they want to sabotage us.

Producer: Where are you going?

Teresa: I’m leaving


Producer follows Teresa as she’s leaving Jennifer’s house. Teresa turns around and loudly asks “Why are they still filming?” while looking dead at the cameraman. Teresa gets in her boyfriend’s car but not without letting the producer know that they can all go eff themselves.

EXCLUSIVE: RHONJ’s Jennifer Aydin Dishes On The New Season & Why Bill Won’t Be Watching This Season Plus Where She Stands With Her Castmates

While appearing on Flipping The Table with Jack Sitt Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jennifer Aydin dishes on the new season and how it has affected her family and her relationships with her castmates.


The reality star talked about being surprised at how much her castmate Jackie Goldschneider had her back through this ordeal. “I wasn’t sure where she was coming from when she reminded me that it wasn’t something she could relate to but now I’m watching it back and I’m like wow she really did have my back and that is very big of her” Jennifer recalled. Jennifer made it clear that she wasn’t a fan of the first several episodes of RHONJ because it seemed to be from Margaret’s point of view but she’s hopeful that fans will soon get to see more of her spin on things in the upcoming episodes. 


Jennifer Aydin and Dolores Catania


Jennifer didn’t hold back when discussing the awkward distance between her and castmate Dolores Catania. She’s now using the advice that her once friend Dolores gave her which is “when someone shows you who they are, believe them” and Jennifer says that’s exactly what she’s doing when it comes to her relationship with Dolores. She doesn’t feel Dolores has been there for her and Jennifer is putting some space between the two. Jennifer affirmed what many already guessed which is she’s closest to Teresa Giudice but in a new development she’s made amends with the Gorgas. 



Jennifer Aydin and Husband Bill Aydin


When asked if her kids watch the show, Jennifer stated that the only person in her household that watches the episodes with her is her daughter Gabby. Jennifer quickly admitted, “Bill is not watching this season, it’s just easier for him to cope. Ultimately, he’s thinking that this was his shame, his infidelity and he’s like of course it’s easy for you to talk about it because you didn’t do it.” The reality star credits self-reflection as the thing that has helped her grow over the past seasons. “My first season I would watch it and I was thinking that everyone is going to love me. I’m like I’m a good time, I tell it how it is and then when I saw the first season and I was talking about my bathrooms and about my house and realized how I sound. I was like that’s mortifying and terrible! So, I am more conscious of the things that I say now.” 


The reality star also stated that she would love to explore writing books in the future which could include mom self-help books and a novel based loosely on her actual life! Fun fact when asked if she could switch to another franchise, Jennifer excitedly responded, “I’m loving Salt Lake City! Every single person on that cast is just dynamic and they have personality. One day Whitney’s my favorite then one day Heather’s my favorite, even Mary’s been my favorite and I’m like we need this coco for cocoa puffs woman on the show! Bring her back!”

RHOBH Producers Forced To Shut Down Filming After Lisa Rinna Blasts Erika Jayne For ‘Self-Medicating’

Lisa Rinna has reportedly turned on her “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” bestie, Erika Jayne. Bravo producers supposedly had to shut down cameras when Rinna began blasting Erika after a blowout fight unfolded during a cast trip to Aspen.

Rinna supposedly fired off a string of accusations about Erika during the weekend trip to Colorado, and there were allegedly lots of eyewitnesses to Rinna’s diatribe.

The cast was reportedly rehashing the altercation that went down hours before inside Felix Roasting Company when Rinna supposedly went off. Rinna expressed concern about Erika allegedly self-medicating with booze and pills, but Erika was not present to defend herself. Rinna’s allegations reportedly crossed some sort of production boundary, and witnesses to the drama claim that producers shut down filming.

“A producer had to step in and they stopped filming… then all the girls made an agreement to not name call anymore and filming resumed,” an insider alleged.

The source also claimed that Rinna’s tongue-lashing occurred after she mixed it up with Dorit the previous night.

Dorit maintained a neutral stance last season about Erika’s alleged involvement in her estranged husband, Tom Girardi’s reported scheme to embezzle settlement funds. The disbarred lawyer has been accused of using settlement funds owed to clients to bankroll his posh lifestyle and his wife’s pop star career.

While Dorit remained on the fence, Rinna fiercely defended Erika last season amid her mounting legal woes.

“Rinna seems to be in a good place with Garcelle [Beauvais] and Sutton [Stracke],” the eyewitness alleged. “Sounded like Rinna has gotten to a point where she can no longer defend Erika.”

“Dorit feels bad for Erika and [is] trying to help her out,” the insider later added. “Really seemed like there is a beginning to be a rift between Erika and Rinna although Rinna sounded genuinely concerned for her.”

The insider also alleged that the ladies called Erika out for “refusing to give up her earrings” and for being angry at the idea that she should.

Jackie Goldschneider Confirms Luis Ruelas Will Confront Rumors During Season 12 Of RHONJ

Teresa Giudice’s fiancé, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, will address some rumors about himself on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

“There’s a pretty epic scene [this season] where he does answer some questions,” Jackie Goldschneider, 45, exclusively told Page Six in a new interview.

“But I don’t want to spoil anything, so I will not tell you how it turned out.”

Goldschneider said there’s also “no end” to the gossip surrounding Giudice’s beau throughout Season 12 of “RHONJ.”

Jackie Goldschneider confirmed to Page Six that Luis Ruelas will address rumors about himself during Season 12 of “RHONJ.”

“There’s an awful lot of rumors and they just keep on coming,” she teased. “That kind of drama just doesn’t go away. There’s no end to it.”

“It’s never fun being the one in the hot seat, and I’m not sure that Luis knows what he signed up for yet,” she told Page Six. “Because it’s really difficult enough to film it, but watching it back is, I think, even harder.”

Luis Ruelas and Teresa Giudice have been engaged since October 2021.

She added, “I hope that he can take it in stride and, you know, kind of have fun with it, if possible.”

RHONJ Star Jennifer Aydin’s Daughter Discovered Father’s Affair On TikTok

Jennifer Aydin never thought she’d tell her kids their father, Dr. Bill Aydin, cheated on her 10 years ago — but that changed when “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” Season 12 went into production last summer.

In an exclusive interview with Page Six, the Bravolebrity, 44, reveals the heartbreaking moment the couple’s 9-year-old daughter, Olivia, discovered the plastic surgeon’s affair via TikTok, as cameras started rolling.

Jennifer told Page Six it was “not easy” to discuss Bill’s 10-year-old tryst on “RHONJ” Season 12.

“We had a blogger leak this awful storyline and somebody made a TikTok on it,” she recounts.

“My sweet little Olivia — who threw a beautiful anniversary party for us [on ‘RHONJ’ Season 11] to show how her parents are still in love — saw a TikTok that said ‘the big secret.’”

Jennifer says that Olivia proudly defended her mom and dad in the comments section of the post, writing, “This is my mommy and daddy and this is not true!”

The Bravo star and her husband, Dr. Bill Aydin, also share kids Justin, 17, Gabriella, 14, Jacob, 12, and Christian, 10.

It wasn’t long before the Aydins’ youngest child told Jennifer about the valiant effort to protect her parents.

“She came to me to show me her comment and said, ‘Look mommy, I’m defending you from all of these lies,’” Jennifer says sadly.

She quickly asked Olivia to delete the comment, as it ultimately was untrue: Bill, 43, stepped out on his wife with a pharmaceutical rep while she was pregnant with their fourth child, son Christian, now 10.

“I said, ‘It’s for the show and it’s not good if we release things, so maybe we shouldn’t draw attention.’ I had her take it down that way,” recalls Jennifer, who took a beat before sharing more details with her little girl.

Why RHOBH’s Garcelle Beauvais Unfollowed Erika Jayne

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Garcelle Beauvais settles the dust on whys she unfollowed fellow cast-member Erika Jayne, “she called me something that I did not like, and so therefore, when somebody offends you in a way, I don’t want to see her posts, I don’t want to put a little like … [We’re currently] not friends.” Beauvais said on her show ‘The Real’⁠.

Friends were texting Beauvais in shock that the unfollow reaction created such a huge commotion. With little due time, Jayne commented under a fan account, “Well [let] me unfollow her back.”

Garcelle has recently vocalized her disapproval of Erika’s actions especially her involvement in Tom Girardi’s embezzlement case. ⁠

“There’s so much more that she could do, even if she’s not guilty of knowing everything that Tom was doing,” Beauvais argued during Monday’s episode of “The Real.”⁠
