So, as many of you know, there are a lot of new housewives that will be popping up on the Bravo shows over the next year.  Let’s take a look at the confirmed and rumored new housewives…

First off, on “The Real Housewives of Orange County”, with the exit of Lynne Curtin at the end of last season, a spot was opened for a new wife.  In steps Peggy Tanous, a good friend of current housewife, Alexis Bellino.  Peggy is 41 and is married to a web entrepeneur.

Meanwhile, it has been announced that Bethenny Frankel will not be returning for the fourth season of “The Real Housewives of New York”.  Now, while that show already had enough housewives even with Bethenny leaving, they still have replaced her with Cindy Barshop.  And don’t fear, Bethenny Frankel is currently filming a second season of her hit “Bethenny Getting Married”.

Over in my neck of the woods, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” lost two cast members over the past season.  First, Dina Manzo left the show about half way through this season, and then Danielle Staub sang her swan song after the two part reunion.  That leaves two vacancies, one of which is supposedly being filled my Teresa Giudice’s sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga.  According to Teresa, the two get along.  According to Melissa, the two don’t really get along.  So, let the drama ensue.  Who will fill the 5th spot in NJ?  Rumors have said that Teresa’s cousin may also be joining the cast, while other rumors still say that Kim Granatell (Danielle’s frenemy from this past season) may have a shot.  I’ll let you know for sure when I find out.  Also, Danielle is currently filming her own spinoff that does not yet have a title.

Finally, we’re getting a whole new cast with “The Real Housewives of Miami”.  Some reports say that there will be 5 women starring on the show, others say 6, and others say 7.  Below are pictures of the 6 rumored stars of the show.

 Which newcomers are you most excited about?  Will you watch Miami?

Well, with the cast of Jersey Shore all going on to new adventures, I think it’s unlikely that MTV will be able to afford their paychecks for a 4th season.  I’m not saying we won’t see a Jersey Shore season 4, but I doubt we’ll see the core cast of The Situation, Snooki, Jwoww, and DJ Pauly D star in a 4th season.  So, what have the core 4 been up to since they wrapped up filming season 3 down the shore?  Let’s take a look…

Dancing with the Sitch

The most obvious has been Mike Sorrentino (The Situation).  He finished filming Jersey Shore season 3 and was on a plane to LA the following day to start his stint on “Dancing with the Stars”.  He actually lasted much longer than most anticipated, but he was voted off this week.  Let’s face it, The Situation was DEFINITELY not the best dancer…especially on a show that is currently starring Jennifer Grey who could dance circles around him.  According to his Twitter, The Situation came back home to Jersey this past week.

Jwoww Smackdown!

Jenni Farley, better known as Jwoww, made her WWE debut this past Thursday on Spike TV.  Jwoww was taking on the WWE’s caricature of Snooki named Cookie.  Will this open up a new career for Jwoww?  Only time will tell…

Snookin' for Love

Speaking of Snooki (real name: Nicole Polizzi), she just signed a deal for her own TV Show, “Snookin’ for Love”.  While that is only the temporary title, it appears that the show will be a “Batchelorette” type of show where Snooki will weed out Juiceheads to find her Mr. Right.  I wouldn’t be surprised if Jwoww appeared on this show to help her choose the right guy.

DJ Pauly D

Finally, DJ Pauly D (real name: Paul Delvecchio) has also signed a deal for his own TV show on MTV.  Apparently this reality show will follow Pauly D and his friends as they tour the country working as DJs.  Again, I wouldn’t be surprised if some of his “Jersey Shore” castmates appeared on this show.

So, with these 4 moving onto these bigger projects, will MTV be able to afford their paychecks for a 4th season down the shore?  I seriously doubt it.  My prediction is that the other 3 castmates might return with some new faces, leading the show in a new direction.
