As we previously reported, The Real Housewives of New Jersey will be getting a major cast shakeup in season 6. An insider told us EXCLUSIVELY, “Everyone in the cast is currently negotiating their contracts. Caroline Manzo will not return to season 6 because of her spin-off show on Bravo, Manzo’d With Children.” Our source continued, “Kathy Wakile was offered a part-time contract and will appear as a Friend of the Housewives. 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.”
While our source shares that Teresa Giudice has not even signed her contract for season 6 yet, RadarOnline is reporting Jacqueline hasn’t officially been fired yet. “Technically Jax is NOT officially off the show,” a source close to the show told Tom Murro. “But IF Jax is off, which hasn’t been confirmed yet, but if she is, you may continue to see Chris pop up during the season for a few more episodes,” the source said about Jac’s husband, who was involved in the bloody brawl that took place at POSCHE 2.
But the site reports Jacqueline’s status as a Housewife is still up in the air. “Nobody told Jax that it was confirmed that she would be off the show yet,” the source said. “She has been trying to get off the show for a couple of seasons now but her contract has not permitted her to do that.”
“Jacqueline, Chris, and or Caroline may be making an appearance to resolve unresolved conflicts with certain cast members,” the source for Radar says.
