Blast from the past!
The speculation about the casting of next season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been swirling for awhile. As we reported exclusively, our sources say that former housewives will not be returning. However; that doesn’t mean that some of the Real Housewives are not hoping for it. In fact, Danielle Staub, would “love” it. The return of Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita, in particular, would be something she wants.
Danielle told US Weekly, “I would love it because Teresa [Giudice] and I have each other’s back. They did to me what they did to her, so…” Contrary to the earlier seasons of RHONJ, Teresa and Danielle have actually become good friends. Apparently Danielle knew all along that Teresa and she would be friends. She said of the friendship, “I knew we would [become friends]. I just think it was the universe calling. I just think I had to wait and she had to wait and time had to go by. Things needed happened and those things happened and time went by and here we are.” We’re so glad to be here for the RHONJ ride. Most likely their friendship will continue to grow over the course of the show. Teresa is done flipping tables on Danielle now, instead she is only turning the tables.
It’ s not so likely that Danielle will develop a friendship with Carline and Jacqueline, though. A month ago Caroline commented on the speculation saying, “It’s not a no and it’s certainly not a yes. It’s a who knows.” Our sources said, “Season 9 will include last years cast, minus Siggy. It is possible that we will meet a fresh face or two next season.” Former Real Housewives are not set to return, and our sources said the show will begin with the current cast and the new additions will be added “down the road.”
I think it would be so entertaining to have Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita return as friends of the housewives for a few episodes. There are so many unresolved issues between Danielle, Jacqueline and Caroline. That would surely boost the ratings and make for good reality TV. However; I don’t think any former ladies will be coming back as a permanent cast member. (Not for this coming season anyway!)
Do you want to see Danielle, Caroline and Jacqueline hash it out? Is the friendship between Teresa and Danielle solid now for good? Who would you like to see cast next season? Sound off below!
