There have long been rumors that the show — which has been seen as needing a shake-up — is set to add twin sisters Nicole and Teresa Napolitano to the Season 6 mix. Also reported to be joining the cast is their pal Amber Marchese. Bravo has yet to confirm anything about next season's cast, although an official announcement seems likely to come soon.
In the meantime, it's sounding like a member of the current cast is trusting these rumors. Indeed, Jacqueline tells Us Weekly that she's bracing herself for the arrival of the three new ladies.
"There's two twin Italian girls — Teresa and Nicole — and then a girl named Amber," Jac says about the coming season. We can't wait to meet these new faces! In addition, Dina Manzo has confirmed that she's returning for Season 6.
Jacqueline's own future on the show appears to still be up in the air. Earlier this month, when a Twitter follower asked if she would be returning, Jacqueline responded, "Not sure yet. ;0)"
But what do we know about Teresa, Nicole, and Amber? According to Faux Reality Entertainment's description of Teresa and Nicole, "Both are affluent, beautiful, and intelligent women with strong family values." Plus, Nicole owns a Dairy Queen. So any of the Housewives who are nice to her get free Blizzards!
As for Amber, she's a Columbia University-educated mother of four who owns her own fitness line.
So are you hoping Jacqueline sticks around? And do you think these three new faces seem like good additions to the show? Let us know!
