A source close to The Real Housewives of New Jersey has come forward to RumorFix to exclusively tell us that there will be No official new, full-time Housewives come next season — just “friends of Housewives.”
Our source confirmed to our Real Mr. Housewife that ex NJ Housewife Danielle Staub is NOT returning at all for Season Five. “She is off the radar,” our source says.
There have been strong rumors that Teresa Giudice’s friend Jennifer Dalton is joining the case of RHONJ. She was even asked on Twitter if she was a new Housewife, to which she responded with a tease. Here is the Twitter exchange:
Although she may enjoy the attention, our source tells us Jennifer is NOT a full-time Housewife, neither is Kim DePaola; they both will be “friends of the Housewives.”
Other “friends” will include Noelle Brescia and Gia Casey, who is famous DJ Envy’s wife.
Bravo is trying a bunch of “friends” out this season. While they didn’t specifically say this, it would lead one to believe, Bravo may be testing out potential newbies to see how they fare with the audience should they need to replace a Housewife come Season Six. We now can rest assured that there will not be any new full time Housewives and all of our favorite ladies will be back. Bravo does not discuss casting news.
