We’re the first to admit that we’ve never thought of these two at the same time, but when you think about it, a friendship between the two makes tons of sense. When we saw Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Danielle and former Jersey Shore star Angelina making dinner plans via Twitter, our first thought was “um, what?” but after a few minutes of logical thinking regarding the science of reality television, it all made sense.
Here’s a quick summary for those of you who may not be reality TV gurus. Danielle was on the first season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, which first aired in May of 2009. Angelina was on the first season of Jersey Shore, which started a few months later in December. Both women found themselves in the eyes of some of the most legendary reality TV dramastorms of all time and ended up leaving their respective shows before the rest of the OG cast members.
Recently, Angelina tweeted to Danielle to initiate dinner plans, to which the former Real Housewife responded “sure thing kiddo!”

It appears that they actually have been friends for years! (If we’re going to use this tweet from 2011 as solid evidence, that is.)

So, there’s your daily dose of New Jersey reality TV history. Oh, and here’s a photo of the two with Dina Lohan for good balance.
