“Everyone in the cast is currently negotiating their contracts,” our insider says. “Caroline Manzo will not return to season 6 because of her spin-off show on Bravo, Manzo’d With Children.”
“Kathy Wakile was offered a part-time contract and will appear as a Friend of the Housewives,” our source continues. “Bravo was debating whether or not to give Jacqueline the same type of contract. I think Jacqueline will return, but in a part-time role.”
“There are two twin sisters that are currently test shooting with Bravo right now to see if they will work as full-time Housewives,” our insider reveals. “They are not relatives to any of the current cast, but with Caroline, Jacqueline and Kathy out the network is looking for fresh meat.”
“There has also been talk that since Caroline and Jacqueline are out Andy is trying to bring Dina Manzo back,” the insider reveals. “Dina always said she would never return if her family was on the show, and now that they aren’t Bravo really wants her back. The network is looking to revamp the show and the drama.”
