'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Casting; Who Got Kicked Off 'RHONJ?'

After an intense "Real Housewives of New Jersey" reunion a few months ago, Bravo has decided to tip the scales in Teresa Giudice’s favor.
The erratic cast member has a lot to celebrate tonight considering some of her enemies from the show have been kicked off.
After season 4’s reunion show, it seemed the entire cast was upset with Giudice, and rumors soon began to swirl that not all of the members would be returning for season 5.
It turns out that for once the rumors were right and Bravo wanted to settle the score by getting rid of two of Giudice’s biggest rivals.
Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile will not be returning for another season of RHONJ, according to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.
To make things more interesting, Bravo has decided to add three newbies to make up for Manzo and Wakile departing the show.
The three new housewives joining the show are Noelle Brescia, Gia Casey and Giudice’s best friend and hairdresser Priscilla DiStasio.
It was reported by the celebrity blogger that all three women have friendly ties to Giudice, which will give her a bigger advantage during the new season when drama inevitably ensues.
But no need to worry, Bravo isn’t getting rid of all of Giudice’s rivals. Melissa Gorga, her sister-in-law, and Jacqueline Laurita will be back on camera — probably ready to take on Giudice at any moment.
If the last reunion show was any indication of what the newest season of RHONJ will be like, Jacqueline will be showing a whole new side of herself when drama arises with Giudice.
According to insiders who spoke to Perez Hilton, the reality show should begin filming soon, so new episodes could air as soon as the spring.
