The Real Housewives of New Jersey is about to get a major shake-up when Season 6 returns on July 13. Not only are old-timers Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita leaving the show, but Dina Manzo is making her triumphant return.
What's more, three brand-new cast members will be on board: twin sisters Nicole Napolitano Mauriello and Teresa Aprea, plus Amber Marchese. Here's the scoop on one half of the twins, Teresa.
Unlike Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, who have a rocky relationship, Teresa and her twin Nicole are super tight. Nicole is twice divorced, but Teresa is happily married to her hubby, Rino. She lives with him and their 18-year-old son, Giovanni, in Colts Neck, New Jersey.
It wasn't always an easy road for Teresa and Rino, however. Although they first married way back in 1991, they ended up getting divorced and spent 11 years apart. But, clearly, the couple was meant to be, since they ended up getting back together and giving their marriage another try.
Together, they run two successful NYC restaurants, one in Manhattan and the other in Brooklyn.
We can't wait to see the new Jersey additions in action. Even though Teresa and Nicole get along great, that doesn't mean they will play nice with the rest of the cast. Get ready for a summer full of drama.
