Even though it's my job to blog on reality shows, and while I love every housewives franchise for different reasons, I have a hard time following the rumors swirling around the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey…mainly because it's exhausting. One minute Jacqueline Laurita is bowing out, the next minute most of the cast is being replaced by people who will actually film with Teresa Giudice. Add in the off-again-on-again family relationships and friendships, and my head is spinning!
However, this new gossip is beyond awesome. Two words: Lil' Kim. I'll get back to that later, but it's hilariously amazing. According to sources in the Garden State, all of the women will be returning for another round. Yes, that means we'll all be getting our fill of Jacq, Teresa, Melissa Gorga, Caroline Manzo, and Kathy Wakile. Not only will all of the ladies be back for more, we'll be treated to some additional familiar faces as well as some newcomers. Count on some Kims, that's for sure!

It's always fun to hear stories about fan encounters with celebrities – especially reality TV stars because they are so much more unfiltered than your typical celebs. Sometimes it pains me to find out a favorite star is a complete diva or jerk (I won't mention any names), but it gives us a twinge of hope when a celeb is cool. One of our readers (user name Desiday) shared her recent Real Housewives of New Jersey encounter with us and gave us permission to post it – along with her great photos! Desiday met up with Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Albie Manzo and Chris Laurita at a blk. water tasting and meet 'n greet this past weekend in L.A. Desiday lucked out and before any crowds arrived, she was able to hang out with the RHONJ crew and get some juicy deets!

Apparently Jacqueline Laurita has ulterior motives for joining Real Housewives of New Jersey. And she's willing to put up with fighting, destruction of friendship, and negative situations for money – and to help her son Nicholas!
Tom Murro asked Jacqueline what motivated her to return to the show when she seemed so unhappy during the reunion and with her co-stars. Jacqueline's response: "Several things make me stay, contracts and the money of course, but also because I know my son will get so much help and support from others."
"As much as this helps us, we can help others in a big way," Jacqueline added. "We can use the platform to raise awareness and do so much good."

Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Yes, we have ANOTHER Real Housewives of New Jersey post for you on this fine Wednesday morning! As fast as we type up one round of news, something bigger and better comes our way to contradict the last bit! We need a nap.
Our favorite celeb journalist Tom Murro spilled some hot tea on the upcoming season's casting and filming. Tom's source shared this juicy tidbit (juicy, but it gives us the serious sads), "All of the Housewives are back for the 5th season. Danielle has NOT been asked back and Kim D has not been given a contract, but has a small role (and not that of a Housewife). Teresa has friends they they have asked to film with her but not offered contracts yet or to be Housewives."
