As we previously, EXCLUSIVELY, reported Dina Manzo has signed on to return to season 6 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, joining Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga as full-time Housewives. Kathy Wakile has been demoted to a ‘Friend of the Housewives,’ as we stated in our report and according to RadarOnline the terms of her contract are dramatically different. “The financial terms of her contract have been drastically reduced,” an insider tells the site, adding that Kathy’s sister, Rosie Pierri, will now be paid to appear on the show.
“The show got really dark,” the insider explained to In Touch. “They needed to bring in new faces to get back to some of the lighter drama that everyone loves from the Real Housewives franchise.”
The Naplitano sisters are from Colt Neck, NJ and have no connections to the current cast. As we previously reported, the ladies are all affluent, intelligent women with strong family values.
But the insider assures the mag there will still be regular Housewives drama. “These twins will be sassy and you can bet it will turn into new girls vs. old girls drama,” the insider says.
