Product Description

Bravo heads to the Garden State to follow the five most Jersey of all Jersey Girls as they live lavish lifestyles and deal with all the drama that money can buy.

The hair is big, but the drama is bigger in THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY. For the first time in Real Housewives history, the ladies are more than just friends joining the cast are two sisters, who are married to two brothers and one sister-in-law, bringing a whole new level of familial drama to the table. While family remains a priority for each of these women, their shopping, decorating, dating and even fighting are all over-the-top.
From their wild weekend in Atlantic City to the infamous table flip, watch every episode of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY: THE COMPLETE SEASON ONE including the two Watch What Happens episodes, The Lost Footage and the Director s Cut of the season finale, all of 3 DVDs.

The conceit of Bravo's The Real Housewives franchise is to showcase women who make the fictional characters on ABC's Desperate Housewives seem like amateurs. And in that sense, The Real Housewives of New Jersey is successful. The women certainly are colorful, but as interesting? No. Still, it's easy to see why this series is popular. The women are pretty enough, plenty catty, and some are even downright diabolical. They're kind of what Heidi from The Hills might grow up to become 10 or 15 years down the line. Every reality series has to have a villain, and the first season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has one in brassy Danielle. While she may not stick her boogery finger in a jar of communal peanut butter (as did Puck on The Real World: San Francisco), Danielle is an instigator. Many of her alleged actions are chronicled in a book written by her ex-husband. Is she a drug addict? Was she a hooker in the past? Does she have a history of altercations with the police? (Her ex is a police officer.) The truth is less important than the way she--and the rest of the housewives--deal with the accusations on the show. There are histrionics, table turning, and plenty of "Oh no she didn't" moments.

And that's what makes this tacky series watchable. It's almost difficult to believe that these women are real people, because they come across as such characters. Besides the aforementioned Danielle, the show features sisters Caroline and Dina, who are alpha gals of the series. Caroline says things like, "Before I like you, I don't like you," which is either really deep or paranoid, depending on your point of view. Their best friend Teresa is a serious stage mom and their low-key sister-in-law Jacqueline deals with life as best as she can, but she has a difficult time keeping her entitled daughter in line. But Jacqueline's biggest fault--in the other gals' eyes--is her friendship with Danielle. Amid all this drama, there is hope. Danielle's daughter Christine is wise beyond her years. She sees not only through her mother's odd exploits, but also through the tough words that the other housewives spit out. It's time for this girl to get her own series. --Jae-Ha Kim

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Love Love It! April 14, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I promised I would not buy this because I have seen it a million times on Bravo but of all the "Housewives" franchises, New Jersey is my favorite! Atlanta used to be but there is something more genuine and organic about the drama between this particular group of ladies. I'm anxiously waiting for Season 2 to begin next month for even more table flipping!

I love the relationship between the sisters Caroline and Dina. With their sister-in-law Jacqueline and close friend Theresa, the odd "woman" out is Danielle. You really want to root for her but there's something about her that makes that a little difficult. I don't know if her past has hardened her (which it more than likely did), but her caustic and biting tongue are a little hard to take at times.

If you haven't checked out this series, indulge just may also love love love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best season in my opinion October 22, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I began watching RHONJ after seeing the season 1 finale based on the sensational reviews. So I wanted to go back to season 1 and see what they were like before the show really took off. This one is the best in my opinion. The cast members look calmer, not worried about making sensational statements and just being themselves with their families and friends. It's sad to see how much the show changed into sour faces and over the top drama. These people were brothers, sisters and long time friends before the cameras were around. It seems to happen to every housewife show out there...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great first season. June 7, 2010
I really enjoyed the first season of this housewives. It was packed full of intense drama and a little catfighting, as all housewives are. I'm waiting to watch season 2--it's on right now--until they run a marathon and I can't wait! Also recommend Skinny Italian: Eat It and Enjoy It Live La Bella Vita and Look Great, Too!.

Bravo and Amazon - Great job. Andy Cohen is the only host that could interview all the ladies from all the cities with such class and flair. He is a genius, not only as a host but as one of the creators. I'm a little late watching these and I am glad I got to watch this way with no adds and really get a feel for how it all works. Danielle is ill. She thinks everything is a personal slight and makes way more out of it than it ever is. Theresa, Dina, Jaquelline and Carolyn are all lovely. I wish they would have remained the cast and the brother and cousin would have never come on. That sister-in-law came on and just trashed Theresa and her family right from the get go. Why come on TV to do that. Wow. That Christening was all the brother's fault. Jo Juidice was just standing there and he went insane at his Son's supposedly holy day. And Theresa is out of line? Wow again. Of course I'm talking about Season 3. 1 and 2 were pretty good even with the whacko and her bodyguards, I did laugh about that, how over the top she is. I've known a few people like her. I hear Dina is back this year in July.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous Divas from New Jersey June 23, 2009
Wow, these ladies are scary and I would not like to see if there are any bodies buried in their back yards.
The finale, Last Supper is the best, but you really need to watch every episode that leads up to it first. This is sort of like a Sopranos episode, although none of the housewives say they are associated with the Mafia and are being victimized by the rich Italian stereotypes. At the dinner, things come to a head as Danielle (not her real name) tries to live down her past and calls out the other ladies for spreading the book about her past around town. The good things I will say about these ladies is their family loyalty and they actually seem to genuinely love their husbands and children. Power Path to Love

5.0 out of 5 stars RHONJ Rocks! August 14, 2014
By Gina
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Season One is a must see for anyone wanting to catch up the other sequels, not because it's season one, but because it is the beginning of how all the feuding began! From my favorite housewife Theresa, to her on-going feud with former model and housewife, Danielle, and the infamous table flip, to Caroline, Dina, and Jacqueline's flared tempers toward Danielle, this is sure to be one season you won't forget, and will want to watch it over and over again!
