Over in the world of “The Real Housewives”, it appears that Teresa Giudice may be planning to leave “The Real Housewives of NJ” if she doesn’t get more money.  Reports all over the net are saying that she may be planning to leave if Bravo isn’t willing to pay her more money.  Of course the fact that her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, and possibly her cousin joining the cast must not be making her want to stick around either.

Meanwhile, in Orange County, CA, Vicky Gunvalson of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” reportedly has filed for a divorce from her husband, Donn.  Vicky and Donn have been married for 14 years.  I believe that the cast is in the midst of filming season 6 of their show, so I’m assuming this divorce will play out on the new season when the show returns.

What do you think?  Would you miss Teresa from RHONJ?  Are you saddened about Vicky and Donn’s divorce?

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.

The Real Housewives of NJ is basically filmed in my backyard, so it was simply a matter of time before I got to meet these divas.  The pictures below were from Dina Manzo’s Project Ladybug event earlier this summer.  I’m obviously the guy in the photos, lol.  These ladies are SO sweet!  And I can’t wait to see them again in two weeks for the Posche Fashion Show.
