Will Teresa Aprea and her twin sister, Nicole Napolitano, return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey for season seven? According to a report by E! News on July 1, the chances are slim. After deeming Teresa Aprea’s return to be at just 30 percent, the site explained why fans may have seen the last of her on the show.
“Real Housewives of New Jersey ended in November 2014 and Bravo’s been mum about the future of the show while Teresa Giudice is locked up. Newbie [Teresa Aprea] did spar with some of the ladies, but maybe not enough to stick around.”
Teresa Aprea, along with her sister, Nicole Napolitano, joined the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey for season six, following the exits of Caroline Manzo, who went on to star in her own spinoff, Manzo’d With Children, and Jacqueline Laurita, who was ultimately brought back to help with ratings.
E! News also claimed there was just a 30 percent chance Napolitano would be welcomed back to the show.
“Nicole, along with sister [Teresa Aprea], will probably not return should RHONJ welcome Teresa Giudice back.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano were rumored to be on the chopping block with Bravo months ago. At the time, a source told OK! Magazine that the twins would be leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey after just one season on the show.
“They want everyone to think they’re coming back, so they keep posting old pictures of themselves filming.”
One week later, an insider released the following statement to Real Mr. Housewife.
“A lot is going on right now with the show, as I’m sure you’re aware. To date, [Teresa Aprea & Nicole Napolitano] have not been fired. Many things are going on with the show and no final decisions have been made.”
Teresa Aprea and her sister were a fun addition to the show, but since their story lines are less than crucial when it comes to their co-stars, their return is far from certain, as are those of the other stars of the show.
While there is always a slight possibility that fans will see more of Teresa Aprea, the official cast announcement for the seventh season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey likely won’t be made until late this year, around the time Teresa Giudice is released from prison on December 23.
