There have been plenty of rumors circulating over the last several weeks about the casting changes for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and now it seems that we may have some answers. In a recent interview, Jacqueline Laurita dished on the new – and returning – Housewives that will round out the cast.
“There’s two twin Italian girls — Teresa and Nicole — and then a girl named Amber,” Jacqueline told Us Weekly at the Manhattan Beach Pier on October 27. This confirms what we reported earlier in the month, when rumors were swirling that sisters Teresa and Nicole Napolitano and their pal Amber Marchese were possibly joining the cast.
And guess what else? “I think that my sister-in-law Dina [Manzo] is coming back!” Jacqueline gushed to Us. Now that Caroline Manzo is officially off The Real Housewives of New Jersey and working on her own spin-off series, estranged sister Dina has been rumored to be returning to the series. Sounds like Jacqueline took it upon herself to go ahead and validate that bit of gossip, as well.She also sort of confirmed that Dina’s return is directly related to Caroline’s exit, saying, “Well, she doesn’t really want to do the show with family because it brings unnecessary drama and causes problems. I understand why she doesn’t want to do a show with family. I totally get it.”
You know what I don’t get, though? I don’t get it when these Housewives say they like to avoid “unnecessary drama” because HELLO! – they totally thrive on drama. Like, every show. Every show is about the drama, and c’mon, we all know these ladies love it. It’s how they get paid, after all.
And speaking of drama, Jacqueline also shared her feelings about co-stars Teresa and Joe Giudice’s upcoming fraud trial, where the couple is facing 50 years in the big house for conspiring to defraud lenders and hiding assets, among other charges. “Of course I’m worried,” she said regarding the Giudice’s February court date. “I’m always there for her if she wants me, I’m there. I’m not going to push myself on anybody. If she wants me, I’m there for her always.”
Always and forever…..until she goes to prison, right?
