Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga have signed new deals for the next season of “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” In Touch Weekly reports on Oct. 16 that the show is making changes. Three housewives will be joining the cast soon.
Giudice and Gorga have already committed to the next season of “RHONJ,” but Caroline Manzo is leaving to focus on her own reality show. Jacqueline Laurita is also rumored to be leaving. However, Kathy Wakile will still be a part of show on a part-time status. Wakile’s new contract will give her a smaller paycheck, but her sister will be included.
The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” is allegedly adding Nicole Napolitano, Teresa Napolitano and Amber Marchese. Dina Manzo is also rumored to be another option. None of these housewives have confirmed their participation.
Teresa Giudice allegedly signed her contract quickly and made no attempts to negotiate for more money or screen time. Giudice’s current legal problems are rumored to have encouraged her to take the first deal that Bravo provided. It seems Melissa Gorga followed the same pattern and took the first deal.
Limited information is available about Nicole and Teresa Napolitano, the twin sisters who may be joining the show, and sources claim they are not interested in drama. Nicole is single, but Teresa is married. Amber Marchese is friends with the sisters and has known them for years.
