The casting rumors for “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” are starting up again and it’s not looking good for the double-trouble twins, Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea. We first met the girls when they joined the show during Season six, and according to OK! Magazine, Nicole an Teresa have reportedly been let go, but are holding out hope that producers will change their minds. An insider said,
“They want everyone to think they’re coming back, so they keep posting old pictures of themselves filming.”
Another housewife unsure of her future is Amber Marchese. In response to a fan who asked Amber via Twitter if she’ll be returning next season, Amber said that she wasn’t sure, “We are all still in flux,” Amber replied on Friday morning.
Although Andy Cohen has admitted that RHONJ is revamping, no official response about casting has come from Bravo. Melissa Gorga is rumored to be returning with a $750K paycheck. Obviously, Teresa Giudice is locked into another reality show called, “This Is What Happens When You Commit Fraud.” Caroline Manzo has her own show, “Manzo’d With Children,” and sister Dina Manzo has moved to the West Coast and reportedly filming a new show in Malibu. Dina posted a photo of herself walking on the beach with her dog, past a camera. Dina wrote, “Film crews at the beach house today…#malibulife.”
Also part of the casting rumor mill is “Cake Boss” star Buddy Valastro’s wife Lisa Valastro and Geraldo Rivera’s wife Erica Levy, to name a few. Wouldn’t you just love to see Geraldo Rivera and Jim Marchese go toe-to-toe?
