The news didn’t make it to the man-caves of New Jersey.
Jackie Goldschneider says some of the husbands of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” didn’t bat an eye at Jennifer Aydin’s revelation that her husband Bill Aydin had an affair with a pharmaceutical rep.
“I don’t think the guys get as involved in the drama,” Goldschneider tells Page Six. “The guys all love Bill. I think some of them were not shocked, and I don’t know why.”
The former lawyer, 45, adds, “Some of them were not shocked, but they would never rib him about it. I don’t even think they brought it up to him. They’re not like that.”
The bombshell confession stunned many of the women and appears to affect the group’s dynamics going forward. However, Goldschneider assures us that the “House-husbands” didn’t lose too much sleep over it.
“They’re good guys. They’re able to put aside the women drama and really have their own friendships,” she says.

“I’m so protective of the Jersey husbands,” she said. “Like the Jersey husbands just have this bond in the way they love each other. Off-camera also is just so unique — they love being together.”
