The Real Housewives of New Jersey always seem to attract drama, and now sources are saying that a new housewife (or even housewives) may be added to the the mix.

A reliable source close to Real Housewives of New Jersey production tells All About the Real Housewives that no one has signed on for Season 5, but that fan-favorite Jacqueline Laurita is definitely out.

The source also says that Jacqueline’s rumored replacement is Claire Szucs-Pavlinec. The brunette beauty was crowned Mrs. New Jersey in 2010, and is currently a stay-at-home mom with two children. Claire is reportedly not friends with any of the other housewives.

Other rumored housewives include Heather Robinson — mother of three and wife of NBA veteran Clifford Robinson — who is already friendly with Kathy Wakile and Melissa Gorga. Heather was on-hand at Wetpaint Entertainment’s one-year anniversary party last fall, for which Kathy made some delicious desserts. She’s also been spotted at other housewife-centric events in the past few months.


Teresa Giudice’s sister-in-law, Sheila Giudice is also rumored to be joining the cast. Could Season 5 of RHoNJ become the Giudices vs. the Gorgas once again?
