A day after Melissa Gorga accidentally leaked taglines for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 11, Bravo has released the official ones. The housewife made a post on Instagram with a provisional opening sequence for the upcoming season of the show. However, after Gorga seemingly noticed she had made a mistake, the video was deleted. The latter didn’t happen before avid fans were able to download the video and share on social media.
What were the original taglines?
One thing that fans always look forward to when a new season of The Real Housewives is about to premiere: taglines. The phrases that the stars of the show read become iconic and their storyline for the season. People have become accustomed and the shadier the tagline is, the better.
When Gorga accidentally released a provisional video with the taglines, viewers didn’t know if it was the final version. The intro pumped fans up for the upcoming season and excited for their respective favorites.
Jennifer Aydin: “I’m the rock for my family, I just happen to be a diamond.”
Jackie Goldschneider: “I may be cut from a different cloth, but it’s top quality fabric.”
Margaret Josephs: “I renovate, elevate, and sometimes, I instigate.”
Melissa Gorga: “I can tell you’re green with envy, and honey, green is not your color.”
Dolores Catania: “I’m loyal and I’m lovable, but don’t you dare call me gullible.”
Teresa Giudice: “They say it’s never too late to start over, I say starting over never looked so good.”

Did the taglines change with the official version?
Although most of the taglines eventually ended up staying the same, there were some differences with the final version. Bravo had no choice but to release the real intro to not confuse fans when the show began airing on TV. Aydin got a completely different tagline than the leaked version. As the RHONJ star is the one that opens the intro, it was the most noticeable change.
“Whoever says money can’t buy happiness, clearly doesn’t have my credit limit,” Aydin says in the official intro.
The other tagline that change was the one delivered by Giudice. In the leaked version, Giudice is seen popping a wine bottle which becomes audible as she reads her line. However, in the official version, they changed to a scene where she says, “I’m still sweet.” Additionally, they swapped the word “looked” in favor of “tasted.”
“They say it’s never too late to start over, I say starting over never tasted so good,” is what Giudice’s tagline reads.
Tagline reading is not only an issue on RHONJ, over on The Real Housewives of Dallas D’Andra Simmons had issues with her own. Many fans noticed that her voice sounded really deep, something she didn’t realize herself.
“I didn’t even know that my voice was that low, that register,” Simmons told Brice Sander while doing an interview for ET. “It was kind of like a shock to me too. I had several reads of that line and that’s the one [producers] chose. It certainly surprised people.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres on February 17 on Bravo.
