Real Housewives of New Jersey Surprising New Cast

Real Housewives of New Jersey

Fans of the Real Housewives of New Jersey will be both disappointed and surprised by the new cast of ladies for season six. Fans will be happy to know that Teresa Giudice and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga will be returning, however, they are the only ladies from season five that are. Other fan favorites, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, and Kathy Wakile will not be returning to the show.

There is no official word on why Jacqueline Laurita or Kathy Wakile will not be returning with the other ladies for season six. Perhaps viewers were bored with their lack of story line, as both ladies had a very stable family life and kept a level head throughout the season. Most of their drama came from fighting with Teresa Giudice. There is still a chance that they may make an appearance, as Wakile might be shown when she hangs out with her family members, Gorga and Giudice.

However, fans will still be able to keep up with Caroline Manzo, just on a different show. Manzo is getting her own show called Manzo’d With Children. The spinoff show will feature Manzo and her tight knit family. Perhaps viewers will also get to see an appearance by Laurita on this show, as she and her sister-in-law Caroline Manzo are very close.

One of the new cast members for this season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey might surprise some fans. Bravo is bringing back fan favorite, Dina Manzo, from season one. Viewers fell in love with Dina Manzo, who is Caroline Manzo’s sister and Jacqueline Laurita’s sister-in-law, and were sad when she left the show. Dina Manzo has remained close friends with Teresa Giudice, but is not speaking with either Caroline or Jacqueline. Fans are speculating that is why neither of those ladies are returning, as filming would be very awkward.

Dina Mazo’s storyline will feature her divorce from husband, Tommy Manzo, and her coping with her daughter, Lexi, leaving for college. Dina is also going to attempt dating and will lend emotional support to good friend, Teresa Giudice, who is facing intense legal problems.

Adding to the Real Housewives of New Jersey of the cast is Rino Aprea, Amber Marchese, and Nichole Mauriello. Aprea owns a restaurant in New York City and is twin sisters with Nichole Mauriello. Mauriello works as a broker and is dating a man who her family does not approve of. Marchese is a cancer survivor and is trying to rekindle her friendship with Melissa Gorga.

One thing is for sure, the new cast of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is sure to serve up plenty of surprises and loads of drama. Although fans are sad to see some of the regular cast go, it is always fun to watch these ladies make new friends. Bravo has kept with the family theme by adding the twin sisters, along with Giudice and Gorga. Fans are undoubtedly going to tune in to see how Teresa and Joe Giudice’s legal problems progress, and to see if Dina Manzo finally addresses her ongoing feud with her sister Caroline Manzo and sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita. Bring on the table flipping.

    Watched last night’s show. Cannot feel sorry for Teresa and Joe. They committed crimes and are complaining about attorney fees! Do feel sorry for their children.

    Ok!!! I love all the Real House Wives and Nj is one of my faves! I did watch the the preview show and it was very interesting but almost seems very scripted…. I was hoping they would bring housewives on the show and not just a bunch of mean girls back! However… I am glad Theresa is back…. But instead of breaking up the show… Why didn’t they give Theresa her own spin off and keep her on the show like the wedding spin offs? I’m sure that would have been fun to watch! I just hope is viewers get to see Rosie and all the other departed housewives 🙁

    Saw the preview episode & am not a fan I liked Caroline, Jaqueline & Kathie so I won’t be watching this year maybe Caroline’s show though.

    VERY disappointed. Never cared for Dina. seemed selfish & controlling to me–no wonder she is looking for husband #3. Seems a pity that Bravo would allow Dina such a hold on this show, after decorating show went bust, I guess she’ll do anything to keep her name in the public. Also, I have many relatives in New Jersey, none are Italian. How is it that EVERY one of the housewives past and future are Italian. Not a good representation of Housewives of New Jersey. Use to like it, but will no longer waste my time with the likes of Teresa,& Dina! Good Bye!!
