“RHONJ” Cast Shakeup: More Housewives Exit, Scoop on 3 New Ladies


They say that nothing lasts forever, and that certainly couldn’t be truer than with friendships among “Real Housewives.”

The New Jersey cast is the latest of the “Housewives” franchise to experience a major cast shake-up, with Caroline Manzo confirmed to leave for her spinoff, “Manzo’d with Children.”

Additionally, Radar Online reports that Kathy Wakile has been demoted “to a part-time role,” while Jacqueline Laurita is rumored to be leaving as well.

In response to a Twitter follower asking if she was departing the hit Bravo series, Laurita replied simply, “Not sure yet.”

Along with the shocking return of Dina Manzo, which is in the works, there are at least two new ladies rumored to join the Real Housewife ranks.

Twin sisters Nicole and Teresa Napolitano are reported to be joining the show, with their friend, Amber Marchese, named as a possible addition as well.

There is good news for fans of the current cast, as Wakile’s sister, Rosie Pierri, “will finally get paid to appear on the show.”

No word on the return of “RHONJ,” but the new season will premiere in 2014. Are you bummed about the cast departures?
