Pics Of The 'RHONJ' Cast Before They Were Famous

by Marenah Dobin

There is just something special about The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The Jersey Housewives have a style and attitude that's all their own. This is something that has always been true based on what I've seen from the photos of the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast from before they were a part of the show. Even in a photo, it is very clear that these women have always had so much sass and very Jersey taste when it comes to their fashion and beauty decisions.

Now that RHONJ is back for Season 7, I cannot get enough Jersey-related content whether it's new gossip or some classic throwback pics. These women will forever be entertaining to me, whether they are trying to be or not. It's obvious that the RHONJ ladies were meant to be in the spotlight, so I'm not at all surprised that they all ended up starring in a reality TV show.

You know you want to see what they all looked like before they upped their hair, makeup, and wardrobe budget and gained access to experienced stylists. There is just something really endearing about seeing these ladies back in the day when they were hitting the hair spray hard.

Teresa Giudice

Wow, look at how young Teresa and Joe Giudice look! Teresa's hair is super curly, but they still look pretty much the same way these days — for the most part, anyway.

Melissa Gorga

It's hard to remember that these two were actually good friends before the years of public feuding and subsequent best friendship that came about recently. They look so stereotypically Jersey though. From the sequins to the zebra print, they were really killing it back in the day.

Jacqueline Laurita

I was so curious to see a throwback photo of Jacqueline since she is so vocal about being into plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures, but she doesn't look super different in this photo. Jacqueline really does look like Jacqueline in this old pic.

Rosie Pierri

This photo that Rosie posted is everything to me. She is totally on trend — for the time period and, ironically, nowadays — with those high waisted shorts.

Kathy Wakile

Kathy Wakile and her husband Richie are really rocking all of the style trends from 1989 in this photo. Just look at that hair! They were really on point back in the day.

Siggy Flicker

I'm not sure how to react to a throwback of Siggy quite yet, since she has only been in one episode so far and during it she was recovering from a face lift. Nevertheless, she looks stunning and fresh faced in this old photo with her daughter.

Dolores Catania

Dolores looked just as good now that she did back in the day. She has the biggest smile, which hasn't changed.

Things might be changing in New Jersey, but these ladies have always killed it and these throwback pics serve as proof.
