Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 newbie Siggy Flicker is proving yet again why she is our new favorite. The prominent relationship expert reflected back on her humble beginnings, while celebrating her birthday with a fancy dinner at The Polo Bar in NYC.  She says, “Infatuated. Obsessed with @ralphlauren – when I was growing up and living paycheck to paycheck I would jump for joy when I could go to any @tjmaxx or @marshalls and buy a #polo shirt for 12.99. Thank u for giving me a piece of the American Dream #ralphlauren.”

Siggy, short for Sigalit, wasn’t born into money. She worked her way to get through college, as a waitress at T.G.I. Friday’s, and shopped at discount chains like TJ Maxx. Her lifestyle is a lot more luxe these days, but clearly it hasn’t gone to her head.

My happy place! #Boca #newyorkprime #ysl

The new “RHONJ” recently showed off a customized bag by @luxe_btqe on Faceboook explaining: “Growing up no one could say my name so I shortened it to Siggy and people still don’t get it right and call me Ziggy. Can’t win. #sigalit #siggy #ziggy”
