As we previously reported, Bravo has been looking for new glamorous women to join the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but a new report claims that all of the rich and fab wives of Jersey have no interest in joining the “trashy” show.
“After the seedy drama surrounding Teresa Giudice, production really wants to class up the franchise,” an insider shared. “They’re looking for someone like Lisa Vanderpump from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
“Mercedes? BMW? That’s not at all what they’re looking for,” the source told RadarOnline. “They want someone who drives even more expensive cars than those. Think Bentley. They also want someone who has a huge house.”
“Women who have that much money simply are not interested in doing something like the Jersey Housewives,” the source claimed. “For one, they find it to be a trashy franchise.”
“Some of them also do not want the scrutiny of the IRS!” the insider added. “Anyone who would go on that show with massive amounts of money would likely be closely monitored after what happened to Teresa, so some people are simply choosing not to do that to themselves.”
