Jennifer Aydin is denying she is an alcoholic after her messy RHONJ trailer debut and ahead of tonight’s Season 11 premiere, the reality star is opening up about her relationship with alcohol.
In a juicy new interview with Derek Zagami of RealiTea With Derek Z, Jennifer denies that she has an issue with alcohol and explains the new season of RHONJ came at a hard time in her life.
“I like to tell people that I’m not an alcoholic, that I actually am a social drinker and I only drink when I socialize. And everybody has to take into consideration that we’re coming off a pandemic, I haven’t socialized in months. So if my tolerance was non-existent before, like p.s., I’m a cheap date,” she dishes in the chat, which you can check out below. “That’s all I’m telling you.”
RHONJ’s Jennifer Aydin is opening up about her issues with alcohol ahead of the Season 11 premiere.
“It got the best of me in some instances but I was really just trying to let loose,” she explains. “You know, I’m dealing with a lot of stress at home, I’m homeschooling five children, I have no house keeper, no nanny, and a babysitter that comes sporadically and tells me she can’t come half of the time.”
She continues, “So I’m spread very thin and I’m also dealing with my parents’ situation, so if I’m going to a party and I haven’t been out in six months, you can bet your ass I’m going to drink and have a good time.”

In a first look at the new season of RHONJ, Jennifer can be seen falling over at a party and the footage was mixed in with clips of the other women implying their may be an issue, so we can see why she would want to address this ahead of the premiere.
After hearing what she has to say, it kind of sounds like viewers are in for a really messy season but at the end of the day, that is the Real Housewives of New Jersey we know and love.
Jennifer’s openness about her relationship with alcohol is just another thing that helps to make us love the reality star even more, so we are eager to see how her personal story plays out and hint, hint, she isn’t the only cast member who uses alcohol as a crutch this season.
