It seems as if that compared to seasons past, season six of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" will be much more light-hearted and fun. Viewers will see the housewives all glammed up and enjoying themselves at festive events, something that was sorely missing from the show in recent seasons due to all of the focus on the Giudice and Gorga family drama.
On Thursday, June 26, returning housewife Dina Manzo posted a photo of the cast members at one of the events that viewers will see featured on the show. Not surprisingly, it's an event put on by Dina to promote her party planning business. The posed photo shows Dina surrounded by new cast members Amber Marchese, Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano, as well as returning cast members Teresa Giudice, Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri (Kathy and Rosie will be seen on the show on a part-time basis).
All of the women, except for Rosie, have on tight dresses that show off their bodies and stiletto heels, with their hair and makeup immaculate. The only person missing is Melissa Gorga. Perhaps she was too busy to go to the event or just made it too late for the photo?
Dina's caption states that the group took the photo while at her launch party for her new party planning school. She promised viewers that the launch party will be just one of the fabulous events that they'll see in the upcoming season. The sixth season premieres on Sunday, July 13.
Dina, who left "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" after season two, certainly knows a thing or two about party planning. She works as an interior designer and special events planner. After her initial run on "Real Housewives," she had her own party-planning series, titled "Dina’s Party" on HGTV.
When she announced that she'll be a housewife again, Dina simply stated that "it felt right" because of the changes in her life and closer relationship with Teresa. Obviously, the exit of Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita from the show had much to do with it as well, since Dina has admitted that she would never do reality TV with family ever again.
Perhaps another big reason, as evidenced by her excitement at sharing the teaser pic, is to promote her new party planning school? Like Teresa Giudice, Kathy Wakile and Melissa Gorga, Dina Manzo is certainly using the "Real Housewives" opportunity to promote her business ventures as much as she can!
