The Real Housewives of New Jersey returned to screens in 2016, bringing Teresa Giudice, Jacqueline Laurita and Melissa Gorga back to the small screen, alongside new cast members Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania. Now that the season is over, we reflected on the drama and goings on with Siggy in a new and exclusive interview – find out what she had to say below…
How did you find your first season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
It was exhausting. Definitely worth it but I couldn’t get out of bed for 30 days! I’m one of those people who feels other people’s pain and when you can’t help them it’s really difficult. There was a lot of friendships broken up in the season and I really wanted to help people to move forward and to bring the pack together. It was heart-breaking. Teresa [Giudice] and Jacqueline [Laurita] have been friends for 18 years and they’ve shared a lot of precious moments. They’ve had babies at the same time and were really close so it was heart-breaking to see that relationship fall. It was also hard because I was just getting to know them for the first time. When I met Teresa we fell in love and had a bond but that had caused a bit of friction whereas I just wanted everyone to get along and move forward.
