The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 will reportedly include a few new faces — and some old ones.
While Bravo has yet to officially renew the series, rumor has it that the upcoming season of the show could look drastically different than it did during Season 6. In fact, according to a new report, the network is unsure which, if any, of its current Real Housewives will return.
On March 6, an OK! Magazine source claimed everyone is in jeopardy of losing their role.
“Everyone is on the chopping block – Teresa Aprea, Nicole Napolitano and even the Gorgas.”
The source claimed Bravo was hoping to bring “new faces” to the The Real Housewives of New Jersey in an effort to boost ratings, which suffered a noticeable drop last year, following the exit of Caroline Manzo. They’re even said to be considering bringing Manzo, along with Jacqueline Laurita, back to the series.
“Casting directors are thinking about bringing back some of the original women, like Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita.”
After Season 5, Bravo reportedly fired Laurita from The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but after seeing a huge ratings drop, opted to bring her back mid-season.
Appearing on the show’s sixth season, after taking three seasons off, was Dina Manzo. Dina reportedly agreed to return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey after her sister, and Laurita, moved on.
As for the possibility of Dina appearing alongside Manzo and Laurita on Season 7, there doesn’t seem to be much of a chance. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Dina recently moved to Los Angeles.
Teresa Giudice is also reportedly moving on from the series.
On March 2, a source told Real Mr. Housewife she had no plans of returning for Season 7.
“I do not believe Teresa and Joe will be filming the upcoming season. Teresa is done with the Housewives.”
In a second Real Mr. Housewife report, a source claimed it was unlikely Melissa Gorga would be brought back to The Real Housewives of New Jersey if Giudice did not return. According to the source, Bravo feels Giudice and Gorga go hand in hand, so if the currently incarcerated Giudice chooses to move on, there simply wouldn’t be enough story line for the network to have Gorga return.
Amber Marchese appeared on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 as one of three new wives, along with Aprea and Napolitano, and recently told AllAboutTRH she would return to the show if presented with the opportunity.
