The Real Housewives of New Jersey is undergoing a cast shake-up!
Insiders tell Page Six that reality veteran, Jacqueline Laurita, and Kathy Wakile are both out, as Bravo looks to a new season.
Sources claim that Jacqueline is making her exit, after Bravo declined to meet her per-episode compensation expectations. Jacqueline has been a fixture on the cast since the show debuted in 2009.
“She’s really highly paid,” an insider reported.
Kathy is said to be disappointed that she isn’t being asked to return for another RHONJ go-round. Kathy was a member of the main cast for three seasons, before stepping into a part-time role, last season.
Jacqueline’s departure lands Teresa Giudice as the only cast member appearing in all eight seasons. Bravo halted production after Season 6, while Teresa served a year in prison, after being busted on multiple counts of fraud.
Reportedly, controversial player, Danielle Staub, is set to make a comeback, further shifting the dynamics within the cast.
Bravo has not yet confirmed the news.
