NJ ‘Housewives’ Gets a New Cast Member?

/ September 2, 2010

Could The Real Housewives of New Jersey be getting a new cast member?

RadarOnline reports that the Bravo hit is getting a new housewife to stir up drama and possibly fill that Dina Manzo-shaped hole left in the show. Who is this lovely new lady? It is reportedly going to be Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudice’s sister-in-law.

According to a Giudice family friend, Melissa is reportedly going to be “Dina’s replacement” after she left the show this past season. However, Danielle Staub is rumored to be leaving the show after the other cast members asked Bravo to kick her out.

Teresa herself is also reportedly trying to leave the show. The bankrupt housewife has hinted on Twitter that she may be leaving. Teresa recently had a major flip-out during the reunion special of RHONJ and her reaction to Danielle’s allusion to a “nephew” sparked rumors that Teresa’s husband, Joe Giudice had fathered a love child with his sister-in-law.

A Bravo rep tells RadarOnline that they “haven’t made any announcements about casting yet” but some more family drama couldn’t hurt the show.
