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!

This must be the season of do-gooding on Real Housewives of New Jersey! Not that they weren't doing charity events before, but it seems like they're making it a focus of the upcoming season. That sounds like a breath of fresh air after last season's dark times.
Last night Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile, Rich Wakile and Rosie Pierri participated in a fan meet 'n greet to benefit Toys For Tots. Fans were asked to bring new, unwrapped toys to the Rauchberg Dental Group offices in Parsippany, NJ.
Missing from the photos is Joe Gorga. According to Kathy's earlier Tweet he was scheduled to be there. Maybe he hid from the cameras. Did anyone here go to the event? Was Joe around?

Following last season's seriously acrimonious Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion it seemed there was no hope of reconcilliation, but recently Teresa reached out on Twitter to congratulate Kathy on her new QVC deal to hawk cannolis.
Kathy graciously replied: "Thank you ! @Teresa_Giudice Your good wishes truly mean so much to me !! Xo" Awww… sweeter than desserts. Also, Kathy looks great in the above photo.

TELL US – ARE THEY SINCERE AND TURNING OVER A NEW LEAF OR IS THIS JUST ANOTHER PUBLICITY STUNT FROM THE LADIES OF RHONJ?
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."

Melissa Gorga is doing her Bravo duty and pole dancing for the network like a good little devotee.
Amid rumors that Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile are not returning for season 5 of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Melissa spoke out to In Touch Weekly insisting those rumors are simply not true! Gotta keep the fans guessing to keep controversy and interest alive, right?
"Caroline is returning,” Melissa says. “Okay, there you go. Caroline is back and so is Kathy."
Just this week a flood of rumors started emerging that Caroline and Kathy were leaving in order to be replaced by friends of Teresa Giudice. Also possibly making a return is former supervillian Danielle Staub.
