Well it appears that Dina Manzo is officially back!
She's been evasive about whether or not she'll officially return to Real Housewives of New Jersey and been upfront about the fact that she will not let her family drama be a focal point of the show, but with word that Jacqueline Laurita is out it seems Dina is in! All Things Real Housewives reveals that Dina has re-signed a contract with Bravo.
"Dina is back and has officially signed on with Bravo for the new season,” the site reveals. “Jacqueline will not be returning to the show, not even as a part-time Housewife.”

It's no surprise that while there are many cast changes, some familiar (and bickering faces) will return!
“Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are also returning in their regular roles. Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri are both returning part-time, and their time on the show will be split,” an insider tells the site. #WallpaperReturns
To replace all of the departing cast, Bravo is of course auditioning for new Housewives – and the contenders are many. Of course because everyone in Bergen Co. New Jersey is apparently desperate to be on a show that will completely ruin their lives. Is delusional in the botox down there?
And most desperate of all is the formidable Kim D! “Kim D is expected to return to the show, but hasn’t signed on the dotted line yet," a source shares. "Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis will not be returning because of the lawsuit she and John filed against the network, cast and production company.” Obviously.
So, I wonder what rumors Melissa will be accused of this season?!
Hopefully none and then she can be relegated to a periphery character and take Teresa with her.
You know what – this could be great. I'm excited about the changes after three seasons in a row of the exact same cast. It will be interesting to see who they bring on and if the format of the show shifts dramatically. Of course we can expect heavy focus on Teresa again as her indictment and Joe's other legal woes for identity fraud unfold.
