ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Noelle Brescia, Gia Casey and Priscilla DiStasio are joining RHONJ. Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile are not returning to Real Housewives of New Jersey. And Teresa Giudice could still get a spinoff series.
Gia Casey, DJ Envy’s wife, is among the new RHONJ cast members for 2013, news reports claim today. Weeks ago, reports claimed that DiStasio, Gia Casey and Linda Berger were being considered. But Berger reportedly has not been offered a role.
News reports today claim that Manzo and Wakile are not returning while Brescia, Casey and DiStasio will all be given full housewife titles. All three women reportedly derive from a Giudice, not a Gorga, storyline. Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita are also returning to the show.
Giudice will get new supporters in the cast. Casey is reportedly Teresa’s friend. And Kim DePaola will tape episodes with the show again but not as a housewife.
Weeks ago, All Hip Hop reported news that “According to an exclusive Sydney Lace source, DJ Envy from the popular Breakfast Club morning show on Power 105.1 in NYC, will allow cameras into his life for the popular TV show.”
Bravo and the current (and future) cast members have yet to comment about today’s news.
