‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ Episode Guide (Jan. 17): Reunion Part One

“Reunion Part 1” (01/17/18) – The ladies of Jersey come back together to hash out their differences, relive their funniest moments and reflect on the loss of Teresa’s mom. But the biggest surprises comes when Kim D arrives on set, forcing the ladies to take sides and pushing Teresa to her limit.

Everyone’s favorite Garden State girls are back and better than ever when Bravo Media’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” returns for season eight with a 75-minute supersized premiere on Wednesday, October 4 at 9pm ET/PT.

Returning for another roller-coaster ride are Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, and Siggy Flicker, who are joined by new housewife Margaret Josephs. When thrown into the Jersey scene, the self-proclaimed “powerhouse in pigtails” holds her own, even if that means clashing with some of the other women. Not to mention, the highly anticipated return of Danielle Staub (Seasons 1 & 2) shakes everything up this season when she comes back ready to reopen old wounds and reveal new secrets.

This season on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” the women are faced with new trials and tribulations that test their close-knit friendships. In the midst of their newfound familial peace, Melissa is thrown a curve ball when Joe and Teresa decide to open a family restaurant without consulting her. Dolores has finally found the man of her dreams, but when her ex-husband asks to move back home, it jeopardizes her own romantic future.

After finding overwhelming success with her book and speaking engagements, Siggy decides it’s time to take her career to the next level. Ironically, this causes relationship issues of her own as her husband questions her commitment to work-life balance. Meanwhile, as Teresa comes to terms with life as a single parent with Joe in prison, her world becomes further fractured by the heartbreaking and sudden death of her mother. The dynamic of the group gets thrown off-course when Danielle Staub re-enters the picture after years of total absence, threatening a 20-year friendship between Teresa and Dolores.

Tensions rise even more between Siggy and new housewife Margaret on a ladies trip to Boca, forcing all of the ladies to quickly choose sides. After years of rebuilding old relationships and establishing new ones, will these women rise above the obstacles thrown at their friendships, or will they realize that some bonds are, in fact, meant to be broken?
