Bravo hasn’t commented on whether or not The Real Housewives of New Jersey will return for Season 5, but judging by the killer ratings for Season 4, the network would be foolish not to extend the series.
However, another season of RHoNJ could be difficult for Teresa Giudice considering she’s hated by her co-stars, all of whom have reportedly said they refuse to film with her any longer.
Instead of giving Teresa the axe (Bravo knows better than that), they are apparently looking to cast some “allies” for her in Season 5.
According to Radar Online, Bravo is currently looking at three possible women to fill two spots.
Priscilla DiStasio, Teresa’s makeup artist, is being considered for a role because she is fiercely loyal to the hated housewife. “Priscilla is Teresa's new best friend and her makeup artist. She would be perfect because she's full of drama and has a mouth on her,” a source explains.
Another potential new cast member, Linda Berger, is also friendly with Teresa. “She will be the perfect puppet for Teresa to have on her side,” the source said of the divorced mother with two sons.
And finally, producers are also reportedly considering casting New York radio personality DJ Envy’s wife, Gia Casey.
While she is a “close friend” of Teresa’s, her loyalty to the Fabellini queen is debatable. The source explains, “So far Gia has steered clear of the Bravo show, even though she's been attending Teresa's children's parties for years. How close they really are has yet to be seen.”
