It’s become fairly well publicized that Season Five of the Real Housewives of New Jersey will center largely on burying the hatchet and healing old wounds between Teresa Giudice and her RHONJ cast-mates. But, if you’re a Bravo producer, too much peace and love is bad for business.
Not to worry, RumorFix has learned exclusively about some of the secret drama which erupted recently, just before production wrapped up on the latest season of RHONJ.
Sources close to the show tell RumorFix that as Bravo prepares to introduce one of Teresa’s friends as a new character on RHONJ, Posche Boutique owner Kim DePaola has become very jealous and is causing more trouble than ever before.
Such was the case last week when Bravo crews showed up to film a segment at a charity fashion show organized by a personal friend of Teresa’s, Jennifer Dalton. The entire RHONJ cast was there for a juvenile diabetes fundraiser, including Kim D.!
Our sources confirm that what was supposed to be a positive occasion took an ugly turn when Kim D. confronted Jennifer about her friendship with Teresa. The encounter nearly came to blows before others stepped in to calm the women down.
We’re told that producers never saw the drama coming on this particular night but that viewers are about to find out just how low Kim D. can go when season Five of The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres on June 2.
