Bravo still hasn’t confirmed Jennifer Dalton’s role on Season 5 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but in our minds, this gal is totally going to be a cast member. Jennifer — who has been friendly with Teresa Giudice for years — was reportedly recruited so Tre would have people on her side after she damaged her relationships with all of her co-stars, but now new photos show Jen hanging out with Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile!

Sure, Jennifer and Teresa have posed for several pictures over the past few months, but why is she now cozying up to Kathy and Melissa both of whom have notoriously fraught relationships with Tre?

According to All About the Real Housewives, Jen is befriending the cousins because she works as a real estate agent and is trying to help Melissa sell her house. A source says, “That’s why the three have been hanging out. Jennifer does not have a problem with any of the ladies and wants to keep it that way, but her loyalty will always stay with Teresa!”

And while Jen is getting closer to Teresa’s fam for her own benefit, Tre isn’t worried that she’ll lose her pal to the other side. “Jennifer will always be loyal to Teresa and Teresa doesn’t mind that Jennifer is hanging out with Melissa and Kathy,” the source adds.

Do you think Jen is just getting friendly with her other co-stars for business, or does she have a hidden agenda? Vote below!
