Dolores Catania and Margaret Josephs Think Jennifer Aydin Is More Upset About Her ‘RHONJ’ Reputation Than Her Husband’s Real Deal
Dolores Catania and Margaret Josephs of The Real Housewives of New Jersey think their co-star Jennifer Aydin isn’t upset about her husband’s affair, which was revealed in season 12. Instead, both women think Aydin cares more about how viewers perceive his life now that everyone knows the truth.
Aydin defended his marriage and his life. The 44-year-old explained that she had a long history with her husband, Dr Bill Aydin. They share five children: Justin, Jacob, Christian, Gabby and Olivia.
‘RHONJ’ cast members called Jennifer Aydin a ‘hypocrite’
In the Season 12 premiere, Jennifer had a fight with Josephs at Teresa Giudice’s pool party. The fight began shortly after Jennifer and Bill Aydin arrived at their co-star’s house where fellow cast members Dolores, Margaret, Melissa Gorga, Jackie Goldschneider and Traci Johnson were socializing, according to People.
Josephs opened up about Jennifer’s husband’s affair, which happened 10 years ago but had not been publicly disclosed. During the argument, Josephs told Jennifer that she thought she was unhappy.
However, Jennifer replied that she woke up feeling blessed and that she loved her life and her husband. She added that he did everything for her without nagging her about the bill. Giudice intervened and stopped the fight, but Jennifer and Bill left the party abruptly.
After they left, Josephs told the other housewives that Jennifer was the biggest hypocrite and had pushed her so far that night. However, Goldschneider revealed that she already knew about the affair but didn’t want to hurt the couple’s feelings by bringing it up.
According to Reality Blurb, even though Jennifer was hurt, Catania and Josephs discussed her marriage, citing that she was hurt more by her image than by the affair.
Jennifer Aydin knew about her husband Bill’s affair many years ago
Jennifer threw a pool party at her house the next day and invited Giudice and Catania. Then Jennifer revealed that her husband was so embarrassed that he hid upstairs. In an interview with The Sun, she also shared that the affair happened while she was expecting her third child.
Jennifer revealed that she learned of this from text messages and credit card receipts from her husband. When confronted, her husband told her he was not in love with the other woman.
During the season 12 premiere, Josephs also added that Jennifer has always projected the perfect lifestyle. She was proud of her huge home – nicknamed the Taj Mahal – as well as having a husband who is a doctor. Now that everyone knows about her husband’s infidelity, she worries what people will think of her.
This isn’t the first time affair allegations have surfaced on ‘RHONJ‘
Once Jennifer found out, she questioned her friendship with Catania. On the Behind the velvet rope podcast, DePaola revealed that Jennifer’s friendship with Catania is officially over. Jennifer also opened up about how Catania and Joseph dared to discuss her marriage when theirs wasn’t perfect.
Jennifer previously revealed to the other housewives that Josephs met her husband, Joe Benigno, when she was married to someone else. She added that the way they met was brazen and taboo.
Josephs met her husband and got married in 2013 after divorcing her first husband. Jennifer added that Josephs is used to a cheating environment. She even added that Joseph’s mother had an affair for 15 years.
Prior to the divorce, Frank Catania cheated on Dolores while she was expecting their son, Frankie. Despite the affair and the divorce, the two still have a relationship.
