Siggy Flicker’s 50th birthday party turned into another drama filled night for the Real Housewives of New Jersey star after her husband refused to let Bravo cameras film inside and RadarOnline.com has exclusive photos from the event. Michael Campanella turned production cameras away from the big party on May 20, 2017 after the RHONJ stars battled during filming all season and producers had the rest of the ladies suddenly film Danielle Staub’s “secret engagement,” an insider told Radar.

Flicker turned 50 with an over-the-top birthday celebration in May, surrounded by her family and friends, including her RHONJ co-stars Teresa Giudice and Dolores Catania, but no RHONJ cameras were allowed.
Not invited to the party was Margaret Josephs, after she and Flicker butted heads the entire season, culminating with Flicker quitting the show.
The party honored her cousin, Nicole Campanella O’Brien, who passed away from cancer in April. Flicker asked guests not to give her gifts but to donate to charity in O’Brien’s name.
Giudice, a friend of Flicker’s for 15 years, attended the birthday celebration.
Flicker’s abrupt resignation at the end of the season was documented by Radar with the letter she sent detailing the reasons for her departure. “The season has caused me so much grief. At the end of the day, I can no longer risk my health or my family. I count my blessing and I’m grateful for all I have in life and wish to be far removed from hostile working environment that Sirens Production created and manipulated.”
Flicker told Radar that she was “so moved by Teresa and Dolores and all of my friends and family that gave money in my beautiful cousin’s name. They are truly good people.”
