Fans of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" don't have to wait long. According to an All About The Real Housewives article posted on Thursday, Dec. 5, filming for the new season already began this past Tuesday. The returning housewives from last season, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, as well as Dina Manzo, who is returning to the series after a bit of a break, will meet the new housewives very soon - this weekend in fact!
"The ladies will finally get to meet the new ladies this weekend and are all nervous to see what the twins and their friend are about," said a source.
The source also said that the returning housewives are "anxious for the new season" because of the new housewives, who are twins Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Napolitano and their friend Amber Marchese.
Caroline Manzo has left the show to star in "Manzo'd With Children," her own spin-off focused on her family. It's also been widely reported that Jacqueline Laurita isn't returning and that Kathy Wakile has been demoted to "friend of the housewives" status.
It'll be interesting to see what roles Jacqueline Laurita and Kathy Wakile will indeed play in future episodes of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey." During an appearance on Bethenny Frankel's talk show in mid-Nov., Jacqueline said that she hasn't been officially fired yet and that she herself doesn't know whether viewers will see her. As for Kathy, she has stayed mum over reports of her demotion, although her husband, Richard Wakile, did tweet to not believe the news via Twitter in October.
