This WWHL was shown at a special time, a 9pm Eastern standard time slot. Andy has done this several times in the recent past. Do you prefer the 9pm slot, or the 11pm?
Andy welcomes Rita Wilson and Jacqueline Laurita to the Watch What Happens Live Clubhouse.
Andy ran into Rita Wilson last night on an elevator in New York City. The first thing Rita asks Andy is what is going on in Florida with #RHONJ! Yep, Rita is a true #LoyalBravoFan.
Andy is obsessed with Jacqueline's shirt. It says big dreams and late nights and good music.
Bartender: It's Lady Gaga's bandleader and right-hand man, Brian Newman!
Drinking Game Alert: BOBBY
Andy, Rita & Jacqueline dish a little over tonight's #RHONJ episode. Kevin Jonas is building Kathy's house on #RHONJ.
Teresa said that it was hard to trust Jacqueline even though the two of them had made up. It wasn't a surprise to Jacqueline, she kind of figured it out after they were done taping and they didn't hang out anymore. They both hurt each other and they both agreed that they were going to put the differences aside in Arizona. They had a choice either they move on with their friendship or they leave it as casual acquaintances. At the moment they text each other but they don't see each other anymore.
JL:"We made a pact that we were going to move forward in the friendship and rebuild that and I kept my end and she didn’t."
1) Andy plays a clip of this weeks episode of #RHONJ. Rita wants to know why is Jim getting involved? (that is a good question Rita, can you say attention whore?)
Andy Plays a sneak peek of next weeks #RHONJ at the request of Rita. Rita says that was very dark. (when you watch that clip you'll agree.)
2) Amy Phillips gives us her first impression of the twins, with hysterical parity of Nicole and Teresa. You can watch some of Amy's parity's if you click here. They haven't uploaded this new one yet.
3) Andy wants to know how Jacqueline & Rita would handle the situations that have occurred this season on #RHONJ if they were on the show.
AC: If the Victoria Gotti told you a rumor would you repeat it?
JL: Jacqueline would and then she would say why is this bitch lying?
RW: Rita wouldn't want to be swimming with the fishes so she wouldn't repeat it.
AC: Would you want to know if someone was spreading rumors around about your family?
AC: If someone you barely knew came to you about your personal legal problems with questions how would you handle it?
JL: Jacqueline would say, "You have to watch what happens!"
RW: We're handling it thank you so much for asking, but I'm not allowed to talk about it.
AC: Do you think it was necessary for Jim to avoid Joe Giudice because of Joe's legal problems?
RW: Rita never followed that story, she couldn't get the connection. (It's a mystery to most of us Rita)
AC: If Jim confronted your husband and called him a dumb ass how would you handle it?
JL: Jacqueline would make popcorn and just sit back and watch it.
RW: Nobody would call Tom Hanks a dumb ass it's not possible to call him that, he's Tom Hanks.
Rita's secret to aging so gracefully is she does nothing. Once she did a movie and she had to get Botox and her eyebrows wouldn't move. She'll never do that again.
At the end of last season Jacqueline had her neck and her tummy done. Andy says she looks great. Jacqueline is very happy with the results of her surgeries.
Jacqueline would like to get her breasts reduced again. They keep getting bigger.
Joe calls in to ask how Nicholas is doing.
Jacqueline says he's doing great and making a lot of progress.
Andy asks Jacqueline after Nicholas got diagnosed with autism, how is Nicholas progressing on the autism track?
Jacqueline says he's progressing well. Every child is different. There's no track. He's doing well, he's reading and spelling and he can label pretty much everything. He can't have a conversation yet. (It will happen, I have faith in Nicholas)
GIF of the Night: Goes to Milania Giudice with her Father, Joe.
Diana from California called in to ask Rita if she can give us some juicy good details about the Good Wife?

Jacqueline will be appearing on Manzo'd with Children. Dina and Jacqueline are not in touch with each other. Jacqueline and Teresa text each other pleasantries from time to time.
Wendy from New Jersey calls and asked Rita out of all the housewives in New Jersey who would she like to go to dinner with.

A question came in for Jacqueline asking why did she not believe Victoria Gotti's rumor about Reno and Santa?
JL: Why would someone come on the show and say something like that? Jacqueline actually met the twins and their mother, she doesn't buy that rumor for one second.
Andy asked Rita if there will ever be a sequel to the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding?
RW: Yes, they're making a sequel and they're going to start filming in January! They have all the original cast coming back. (Very exciting news!)

@regina162 asked if Rita was still in contact with her uncle from when you were on Who do you think you are?
RW: Sadly he passed away about six months ago. Andy wants to be on that show so bad. He's asked several times. It takes about two weeks to shoot that show.
Haley from Michigan says Jim Marchese is the Danielle Staub of this season of #RHONJ 😂 and then asks if Kathy's son is single?
JL: Jacqueline doesn't know that answer but she will find out for her and tweet it.
Benjamin from New Hampshire asked Jacqueline and Rita what their opinions of the twins are.
RW: Really likes the twins especially after seeing Amy Phillips parity tonight. You can tell who's who because one has her hair on the left and the other has her hair on the right. She likes them because they're funny.
JL: Likes them because they bring a lot to the show and they have a good family. Jacqueline has hung out with them a few times and she really does like them.
Brandon from New York City called in to ask Rita what you thought of the street artist posting pictures all over the country of Tom Hanks?

Jacqueline asks if #RHOM is coming back?
Andy says he doesn't know?
Rita likes to talk houswives with Julia Roberts. She's a fan guys!
On that note, Andy bids us a good night.
Did you enjoy this episode of watch what happens live? I thought Jacqueline looked great and it was nice to get an update about Nicholas from her. I don't think Teresa & Jacqueline should go back to being friends again. Jacqueline doesn't need that negativity back in her life. Rita was a ton of fun to have on the show. She gave us all some fun answers. How fun was it that Brian's mom & Dad called in? I loved that moment. Tweet me and let me know your thoughts.
