As excited as we are to see the Franklin Lakes ladies when they return to Bravo this Sunday, July 13 with season 6, let’s be frank here–Real Housewives of New Jersey is all about the kids. Milania Giudice has enough one-liners to fill a book and the Manzos, while they won’t be a part of this season, are pretty much funnier than the Kardashians. So it’s time to decide once and for all which RHONJ family is your favorite to watch on TV.
First, there’s Teresa‘s girls—Gia, Gabriella, Milania and Audriana. Gia is the oldest and is clearly wise beyond her years, but Milania is the firecracker of the bunch and is just freakin’ hilarious. Here’s a summary of her best moments. Clearly Bravo agrees that this kid is amazing:
Then, we have their cousins, the Gorga kids—Antonia, Gio, and Joey. It doesn’t get more Italian than that! Melissa’s boys are relatively quiet, but Toni’s got quite the little diva personality, just like her mama.
Next we have Dina Manzo and her daughter Lexi. Last time we saw Lexi on RHONJ she barely had boobs, and now Lexi’s flashing them all over Instagram! Oh yes, and Dina has a plethora of disabled pets, but for our purposes, we’re going to leave them out of the voting because Mr. Wrinkles would have an unfair advantage.
Now, let’s move on to the cute kids who we unfortunately won’t be seeing this season. Jacqueline Laurita is mom to Ashley and two sons TJ and Nicholas. Ashley and Jacqueline have fought quite a bit on the show, but then Ashley moved across the country to live with her dad and that was the end of that, basically.
Kathy Wakile‘s kids, now teens, are pretty rad too. Victoria’s survived two brain tumors (!!!), and nothing will compare to that clip from last season where their son Joseph took his dad’s Ferrari for a little joy ride:
And alas we have the Manzos, who are so entertaining that they got their own spin-off! Caroline’s clan consists of Albie, Chris, and newly-engaged Lauren. Instead of looking back at their time on RHONJ, here’s a look ahead at the shenanigans they’re going to be pulling on their new show, Manzo’d With Children. How does Caroline not have a full head of grey hairs by now?
And don’t forget—there’s three new girls on this season of the show, all of whom have kids, so we can’t wait to do this poll next season and include them! Yay.
And be sure to tune into the RHONJ season premiere Sunday, July 13th at 8pm on Bravo! Which RHONJ kid is your favorite? What’s your favorite RHONJ one-liner ever? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
