The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns for sixth season on Bravo July 13, and when that day comes, fans will see some different faces among familiar ones.
The half-dozen cast members of the upcoming season?
Returning stars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, former member Dina Manzo, and newcomers Teresa Aprea, Nicole Mauriello, and Amber Marchese!
Veterans Teresa and Joe Giudice will air their personal struggles behind their public legal battle, "fighting to keep their family intact" amid fraud charges.
Melissa and Joe Gorga will also return in July, as will Season 1 star Dina Manzo "to help her soul-sister (Giudice)" only to reveal "her own private pain."
Sounds rough. The blonde star's storyline will feature her divorce from Tommy Manzo; Caroline Manzo's estranged sister will also try "to face her fear of dating."
Surprisingly, Dina's sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita, who's been a Real Housewives of New Jersey staple for five seasons, is out for the coming year.
Also departing from the show are Kathy Wakile and Caroline Manzo, although Caroline will star in her own upcoming spinoff, Manzo'd With Children.
Seriously. That is an actual show that will be on the television.
In their place, three new cast members have been added ...
- Teresa Aprea, and her husband, Rino Aprea, owners of a famous Italian restaurant
- Nicole Mauriello, a two-time divorcee and Teresa Aprea's identical twin sister
- Amber Marchese, a no-nonsense Jersey native and breast cancer survivor
Should be interesting and drama-filled, to say the least.
As always, you can watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online to catch up on the show at TV Fanatic before, during and after the sixth season!
