On Dec. 31 The Hollywood Gossip reports that "RHONJ" star Teresa Giudice is getting a friend on the show. In fact, it is a long time friend of Teresa's that says she will always have her back against the other cast members because she simply doesn't know the other women. Elvira Grau will be joining the cast in season five as part of Teresa's support system against Melissa Gorga, Caroline Manzo, and Jacqueline Laurita. There have been rumors that Teresa's friend Jennifer Dalton may also be joining the show as well, however, that remains speculation at this point.
Elvira is a party planner who runs Space Odyssey USA, a celebrity party and event hosting agency. She says that she is Teresa's friend because they respect and are comfortable with each other as they are. Neither is jealous or insecure of the other for any reason. It sounds like this is the perfect relationship for Teresa considering she spent season four arguing and fighting with everyone on the show.
Elvira Grau says that she has zero loyalty to the other women of the show and will absolutely defend Giudice against the other women when they attack, which is likely that they will. Grau will be joining the show with her four children, Emmy award winning television producer husband, and her two dogs that all live with her in Bergen County.
