Fun in the sun! Filming for season 10 of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey is well underway, and of course, fans can look forward to seeing their faves unite for a lavish cast trip. Life & Style can exclusively confirm that Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs and Jackie Goldschneider jetted off to the Carribean where they stayed at the Moon Palace resort in Jamaica for their costar Jennifer Aydin‘s 40th birthday weekend celebration — and Teresa’s bestie Danielle Staub did not score an invite.
“The girls arrived in Jamaica on Thursday and are staying for a few days to celebrate Jennifer’s 40th Birthday,” an insider exclusively revealed to Life & Style. “Teresa, Melissa, Dolores, Jennifer, Margaret and Jackie are all here. Danielle was purposely not invited.”
It seems like the 56-year-old missed out on a whole lot of fun. The insider revealed that Teresa, 46, Melissa, 40, Dolores, 48, Margaret, 52, and Jackie, 42, all enjoyed dinner together at the seafood restaurant Pier 8. “They’re all in a great mood and are happy to be on vacation together, especially at a really nice all-inclusive resort,” the source added. Page Six was the first to report about the cast’s trip to Jamaica.
“The girls remained pretty low key and they all behaved. I’d say it was a pretty chill trip,” the insider continued, adding that there didn’t seem to be any fighting going on during their four-day weekend. “They enjoyed laying by the pool a lot and swimming with the dolphins on the property.”
The ladies kept that same vibe going throughout their stay in Jamaica. While birthday girl Jennifer is known for enjoying a drink or two, the insider said there really wasn’t any wild partying going on during her birthday trip. “There were no late nights. They just went to dinner every night and then afterward they would just call it a night,” the source revealed. “They did not go to the nightclub at all. They actually had bottle service set up one night and then didn’t show up.”
But one thing seemed evident — Melissa’s friendship with Jackie seems to still be going strong despite the drama it caused between Melissa and her sister-in-law, Teresa, last season. “Melissa and Jackie are still very close,” the insider said. “They had lunch alone one day and it seemed like they were having a very deep conversation.”
