Teresa Giudice might be leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but her family will still be represented on season three of this Bravo hit.
Multiple sources confirm that Melissa Gorga, Teresa's sister-in-law, has joined the cast and is already being filmed by the network. She's actually the mother of the little boy that caused such controversy between Giudice and Danielle Staub on this week's reunion special.
One, big, happy, attention-craving family: Melissa Gorga poses alongside Teresa Giudice and relatives.
Gorga formerly served as the secretary for her husband when he was in the landscaping business. The family is far from poor, as a source tells Radar Online:
“Their house is actually twice the size as Joe and Teresa’s. It’s enormous! She has two live-in nannies and lives in a $4 million mansion on an exclusive lot in Montville. Teresa and Joe’s house looks like a garage compared to theirs.”
While a third season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been confirmed, it's unclear what cast members will join Melissa for it. Teresa is on the fence, Dina has not been asked back and Staub has been kicked to the crazy curb.
That's a lot of pressure on Gorga. We hope she's practicing her table-flipping and weave-pulling skills.
