Some fresh meat may be joining the season 12 cast of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
This week, Traci Johnson was spotted filming with the Jersey Housewives at a PRIDE event in Englewood, NJ.
Traci, the wife of former NFL star Tiki Barber, is good friends with RHONJ star Melissa Gorga.
After the event, Melissa shared a photo of her and Traci on Instagram, which quickly sparked rumors that Traci was possibly joining the season 12 cast of RHONJ.
This isn’t the first time these rumors have surfaced. There was chatter that Traci was joining the show during season 7, but that turned out to be false.
It’s unclear if Traci is being tested to join RHONJ or not, but she would be an exciting addition to the cast.
Traci has a VERY scandalous past when it comes to her marriage to her husband, Tiki.
Tiki left his wife, Ginny, who was already the mother of his two sons and was pregnant with twins, for the then 23-year-old Traci. Tiki filed for divorce in April 2010, and his estranged wife welcomed their twin girls the following month.
Rumor has it that Traci was the former couple’s nanny; however, the NY Post reports that Traci met Tiki while interning at the TODAY show, where the former NFL star was a commentator.
Traci and Tiki now share two daughters of their own.
Meanwhile, RHONJ fans are getting a sneak peek at one of the events for season 12, a party to celebrate PRIDE month.
All of the ladies, except for Jennifer Aydin, attended the party. Check out photos from the event below!
Season 12 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is expected to premiere on Bravo in early 2022.
