After Siggy Flicker left Real Housewives of New Jersey, many people assumed that OG cast member Danielle Staub would just move up from her “Friend of the Housewives” status to secure a full-time spot. That might not be the case though.
There are now reports that not one, but two new women have joined Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, and Margaret Josephs to film Season 9 of the show. Will one of them get a full-time spot in the cast? Will both of them? What about Danielle?
According to Us Weekly, the two newest New Jersey cast members are Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldschneider. Jennifer is close friends with Teresa’s estranged cousin (and former Housewife) Kathy Wakile. Does mean that Kathy and her cannolis will be back on Bravo next season as well? Jennifer is a mother of five who is married to plastic surgeon Dr. Bill Aydin.
Jackie is a mother of two sets of twins. She has her own website called IntoTheMommyBrain.com, and also contributes to Huffington Post as a freelance writer. Jackie recently wrote an article about OG Jersey Housewife (and longtime Teresa enemy) Jacqueline Laurita.
As of this moment, there’s no word on whether Jackie or Jennifer will become full-time cast members, but for now it looks like they are both joining as “Friends of the Housewives,” and production will see how they fit in with the rest of the ladies. Neither Jackie nor Jennifer has posted anything about the show on their Instagram accounts, but if you check out their tagged photos, you can see that they were spotted filming with Teresa, Melissa, Dolores, and Margaret during the cast trip to Oklahoma. Where was Danielle though?
