We may not be able to officially confirm Jennifer Dalton’s addition to The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast, but judging by a recent barrage of tweets and pictures, we’re almost certain that this Garden State girl is now on Bravo’s payroll.

When Twitter followers began asking Jen about some alleged hurtful remarks she made about Teresa Giudice’s daughter, Gia, at the 12-year-old’s birthday party last week, Jennifer was understandably defensive.

“You cannot believe everything you hear! I love Gia and all the girls as if they were my own. Xx,” she tweeted on Jan. 14.

And to prove that her bond with Tre is totally pre-Housewives, Jennifer also tweeted a few old pictures of her with the RHoNJ star. “Known Teresa a long time, long b4 my baby shower on Pregnant In Heels,” she wrote with the above picture.

As we previously reported, Jennifer is no stranger to the Bravo family, having appeared on an episode of Pregnant in Heels last year — and it looks like Teresa has always supported her gal pal!

Are you surprised that Jennifer and Teresa have known each other for such a long time? Sound off below!
