Danielle Staub may be gone, but the drama will still be boiling over every week on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The series returns on May 16 with a special 90-minute episode, during which viewers will meet two new cast members, both with connections to Teresa Giudice: Melissa Gorga is the her sister-in-law, while Kathy Wakile is Teresa's cousin.
Bravo has released the first promotional shots of these new stars.
Wakile (right) is married with two children. Her official Bravo profile makes no secret that this is a woman "who loves to party and have a good time."
Gorga, meanwhile, has three kids and is married to a successful real estate developer. You won't believe this, but she does not get along with Giudice at all. Why would Bravo possibly cast her on the show in that case?!?
