'RHONJ' Amber Marchese closest with Teresa Giudice and Dina Manzo

New "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" cast member Amber Marchese has given a hint on the alliances that viewers will see on the current sixth season. As reported by All About The Real Housewives on Tuesday, July 15, Amber, while at the show's premiere party on Sunday, revealed which cast members she became closest to during filming.

Amber said that she became very close to Teresa Giudice and Dina Manzo. Amber's response indicates that Teresa and Dina, as veteran housewives, likely took her under their wings. Teresa has been on the show since the very first season while Dina has made a splashy return after being away for three seasons.

Amber also revealed why she decided to join the show. She said that she viewed being on the show as the opportunity of a lifetime. She also said that her experience as a breast cancer survivor helped in her decision because she wants to use the platform to increase breast cancer awareness.

Amber's naming of Teresa and Dina as her closest co-stars isn't that surprising since just a few days prior to the premiere, when she did an interview with OK! Magazine about the show, she sat alongside Teresa and Dina and admitted that she "lost friendships" while filming the season. It's likely that her "lost friendships" didn't involve Teresa and Dina since they didn't have a negative reaction to what Amber said.

Rather, Amber's lost friendships likely involves Melissa Gorga, Nicole Napolitano and/or Teresa Aprea. Instead of sitting with Amber, Teresa and Dina, Melissa, Nicole and Teresa A. did their own separate interview.

The sixth season of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" premiered on Sunday, July 13. The premiere episode opened with Melissa Gorga calling Teresa Giudice to make sure that she's okay considering her and Joe Gorga's legal troubles. It then reintroduced Dina Manzo and introduced twins Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea to viewers. Despite being only the first episode, there was already a hint of a feud brewing when Amber confronted Melissa about not contacting her about her breast cancer, something which Melissa denies.
