Rumors continue to fly about who is and isn't going to appear on Real Housewives of New Jersey's upcoming Season 6. Most recently, Richard Wakile issued a strong statement about his wife Kathy Wakile's future with the show.

One of Richard's Twitter followers asks him about the rumors that Kathy will only be on the show part time next season. And what is Richard's response to that story? He thinks people should take the rumor with a grain of salt... although he didn't quite word it like that. 

"@BrianaSulli @PerezHilton don't believe the BS!" Richard tweeted in response. 

So what are we to believe? Well, both In Touch Weekly and All About The Real Housewives are reporting that Kathy will be back next season but in a more limited role. Time will tell if that's correct, or if she's still a main cast member.  

There are plenty of other changes afoot for next season. Twins Nicole and Teresa Napolitano and their friend Amber Marchese are rumored to be joining the cast, while Caroline Manzo will not be returning. Reports say Jacqueline Laurita is likely to not be on the show next season either, but Dina Manzo might be back full-time. Whew. 

It makes sense that Bravo is looking to switch things up for Season 6, given that the recently completed Season 5 earned the show's lowest ratings ever. Still, it's hard to imagine so many cast members departing.

Are you hoping Kathy is back on the show next season? Or will you not miss her?
