Season four of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ was so explosive, Bravo would be silly to not renew the series for a new season. Apparently, they agree. A source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that season five is confirmed with Teresa Giudice and a number of new housewives! Read on for all the details.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion will air this Sunday Sept. 30 — the first of three parts — as the housewives battle it out with Teresa Giudice. The preview looks so scandalous that we’re curious how season five will play out. The cast allegedly won’t film with Teresa, but we know exactly how Bravo plans to bypass this roadblock.
A source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “They’re definitely coming back for a fifth season and Teresa will 100% be on it. But there is talk of casting some new wives — they have had the same cast for two years and it may be time to mix it up. Bravo is currently looking for a few new housewives because no one wants to film with Teresa, and they need some more people to film with her.”
New housewives are always a great addition to the long-running Bravo franchise, but we’re skeptical about who may sign on.
An original report claimed that Teresa may get her own spinoff on Bravo, focusing on her family on husband Joe Giudice’s side. However, Teresa denied this claim on Anderson Live saying, “Not a spinoff on my family, but I would love t0 do a cooking show.”
While we have confirmation that Teresa will be back for season five of RHONJ, we’re not positive who will be joining her. Reports claim potential additions could include Teresa’s sister-in-law (on husband Joe’s side) and a possible return by Danielle Staub!
On Sunday Sept. 9, Teresa admitted to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she misses Danielle.
UPDATE: All of the housewives are expected to return (Teresa, Caroline Manzo, Kathy Wakile, Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita), but the new housewives will simply be additions.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited for season five of The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
