The Jersey ladies are returning sooner than you think for season 12 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
In recent weeks new scoop about season 12 has emerged including some new blood that’s joining the cast and when cameras will begin rolling!
Let’s break down what we know so far!
RHONJ currently stars Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Jennifer Aydin, Jackie Goldschneider, Margaret Josephs, and Dolores Catania and none of that is changing for season 12.
According to Deux Moi, “The Jersey cast is staying the same by the way. They’re still pleased with all of the girls. The husbands definitely help the show in a way the other shows do now. They are going to test 1 or 2 new girls.”
Speaking of testing out some new blood, RHONJ Obsessed reports that Aikisha Holly is joining the season 12 cast as the 7th Housewife. Aikisha will make history as the first black Jersey Housewife. She is married to former NFL player Willie Colon. The two have a son together and are expecting a baby girl.
She is the co-founder and President of the Willie Colon Foundation, which aims to better the “community through education, economics, wellness, and sports.”
Melissa and Margaret recently followed Aikisha on Instagram and Joe Gorga posted a photo of him with Aikisha’s husband on his Instagram Story.
As for when filming for season 12 will begin, sources say filming is set to start on Tuesday, June 8th.
Part one of the two-part Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion airs on Wednesday, May 19 at 9 p.m.
