In this week’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Bravo introduced a new member to the cast, Jennifer Dalton, who is said to be a high-end real estate agent … except she’s not!
Jennifer, who is a friend of Teresa Giudice’s, was brought on to the Bravo series to help Melissa and Joe Gorga sell their Montville, NJ mansion.
RumorFix has done some digging and has learned that while Dalton is licensed, she has only been practicing real estate for less than five years and no one in the Bergen County real estate community would consider her an agent to the stars.
“Jennifer does no marketing whatsoever and has sold only a handful of million dollar properties ever,” says one real estate source, “And those were just favors from friends who wanted to help Jennifer launch her career.”
But according to another source, Dalton has never done any business in Morris County which is where the Gorgas live, and “she knows absolutely nothing about Montville real estate.”
For their part, Melissa and Joe Gorga still reside in her current Montville home which has yet to sell for the asking price of $3.8 million.
Following Sunday’s airing of RHONJ, Melissa admitted via Twitter:
@melissagorga: FYI I love @flygirljennifer sometimes 1st impressions aren’t the greatest…
RumorFix has learned that in recent years, Jennifer has relied mostly on rental commissions and generates an estimated $30,000 – $40,000 per year. In addition, court records would indicate that the aspiring reality star actually filed for bankruptcy in 2012.
Dalton formerly starred in Bravo’s Pregnant in Heels and is eventually hoping for a marquee role on RHONJ.
We wish her luck.
