Rumors continue to swirl about season 7 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. It seems that fans are eager to know who’s going to be in the season 7 cast, when it’s going to begin filming and when we can expect to see it air. Until Bravo divulges some official information, the rumors will just continue to arise.
Right now the three biggest rumors swirling about season 7 are that the New Jersey franchise will be canceled or delayed due to Teresa Giudice’s exit. Other rumors say that the cast will be entirely revamped and that Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita will return to lead the new cast.
“Production is currently holding focus groups about moving forward without Teresa Giudice,” an insider states.
“They are trying to determine what the public perception was of the new and if any changes need to be made in regards to the additions last season.”
Teresa Aprea, Nicole Napiltano, Amber Marchese and their husbands all brought that drama in season 6 but was it enough for Bravo to bring them back?
“If Bravo finds out that the public perception of the current cast is positive, they will likely begin filming in February,” the source reveals but a hiatus is also likely.
“This would allow them to play around with the cast members if need be and film around the normal timeframe the show films in, which is typically the fall.”
It’s also highly likely that Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita will definitely be returning for season 7 and Kathy Wakile may also be brought back.
Back in November, All About the Real Housewives talked with Amber Marchese and she told us her thoughts on Season 7 of RHONJ.
“I think it would be very silly. I think they have an excellent cast as is and you know we can carry on. I mean I don’t think she (Teresa Giudice) is going to do the full 15-months. She’ll be back season 8 very easily so I think it would really silly if they were to do that. They’d lose a lot of fans. They should really focus on getting to know the new girls and everyone has an amazing story and I think they need to focus on the dynamics of the girls – less fighting. You saw the lost footage…you saw we were getting along and they cut out all of that and they went right to the drama and there was so many things that happened before that. New Jersey’s about fun, we’re about strong personalities, were about family and the Italian way and were just so different and it’s unique and everyone brings something to the table. “
What is your ideal situation and cast for season 7 of RHONJ? Would you be sad to see it canceled or postponed?
