The ladies of New Jersey love to start drama (especially on the season 5 premiere!), but they like to look good while doing it. Read on to find out what procedures each housewife has had.
Like their fellow housewives in Beverly Hills, Orange County, and Atlanta, the ladies in the Garden State aren’t afraid to undergo a little nip tuck to look camera-ready. Like in any other Housewife franchise, nothing is sacred, so if the ladies don’t openly talk about their procedures you can bet their cast mates will throw all sorts of Botox, boob job, and facelift accusations during filming or the always hostile Reunion Specials.
Over the past four seasons we’ve seen the Real Housewives of New Jersey transform into fitter, more fabulous versions of themselves. So in honor of season five being just about a month away, we decided to take a look at what each of the women have had done. From tummy tucks to breast implants, you may be surprised to discover what cosmetic enhancements your favorite table-flipping, insult-throwing Jersey housewife has admitted to doing.
During the season four reunion special Caroline Manzo admitted she had a tummy tuck at 39. But when her arch nemesis Teresa Giudice started to criticize her figure despite and say she still had stomach rolls despite her tummy tuck, Caroline fired back, ”You know what? I f**king wear them proud! I have no Botox, I have no fillers, I’ve never had a facelift.”
Kathy Wakile revealed that she had plastic surgery in an episode of Watch What Happens Live and then again during the season four reunion special. She had rhinoplasty and her lips injected, but insists that her changes were minor and mostly in response to fixing her nose because she had previously broken it. When explaining her new look she said, “The nose, the lips, the fabulous makeup that our makeup artist had provided for me, he made me look so glamorous, then my longer hair and just the highlights. So, I think it was a complete total look that made the big difference.”
During the season four reunion special Jacqueline Laurita admitted to having some fillers injected when she felt that her face had started sagging. She also admitted on her website that after the birth of her daughter she had a breast augmentation and then two reductions after that (one with a lift and small implant) and that she had a bone in her nose shaved down at age 31.
Teresa Giudice had a boob job in 2008, increasing her breast size from an A-cup to a C-cup after she felt they were deflated after having kids. In the season four reunion special, Caroline also hints that Teresa has had some facial injections, but Teresa didn’t own up to it.
New Jersey Housewife Melissa Gorga has owned up to having her breasts done as well as getting lip injections. Watch this funny video below of unseen footage, where she talks about her plastic surgery.
