Just a week ago, The Real Housewives of New Jersey came back for Season 2 on Bravo, with new merchandise to hawk. Table-flipping Teresa (a Taurus) has written the cookbook, Skinny Italian, freely emulating a title coined by NYC Housewife Bethanny Frankel (a Scorpio), of Skinnygirl fame! Meanwhile, stalker-esque Danielle (a Leo) is releasing her book, The Naked Truth: The Real Story Behind the Real Housewife of New Jersey. The two ladies are enemies on the series; will their books also rival each other? Beyond the show, who has the better shot at success?
Bets are on Teresa; a recipe book from a Taurus is perfect segue to a more high-profile career outside the realm of reality TV. While drama-loving Danielle may get some attention for telling her side of the story, she’s much more of a spectacle to watch than to read about -- and although her aspects as a Leo do indicate a good career boost (she has the planet of ambition in her identity house), it won’t necessarily come with staying power.
