Real Housewife of New Jersey Jackie Goldschneider Candidly Details 18-Year Battle With Anorexia

For five seasons today’s guest has shared her life with us on the Bravo juggernaut “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”  Jackie Goldschneider has had her share of misunderstandings, parties and fights.  But it was her real life battle with anorexia that made this Housewife someone we could all relate to.

She gives us a peek behind the curtain of this upcoming season of RHONJ:  She hints at the ever changing alliances within the friend group, what it meant to have Teresa Giudice at her book signing and what fights are good fights in the Housewife world.

Jackie also opens up about her new book “The Weight of Beautiful” and the journey it took to get here. From her rock bottom to her recovery, she talks honestly about why she felt it was important for the show to air her struggles and the need for a role model for those living with the disease.

Jackie’s in a great place in her life right now, and we were so happy to get to chat about it all.  Take a listen!
