When The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns for a sixth season, things will be pretty different. Gone are Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile is taking on a recurring role, and in their places are three new faces and one returning lady.
Dina Manzo will join Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga for season six with new castmembers Amber Marchese, Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea. With the new ladies it looks like season six will be a wild ride. Get to know the new faces in our exclusive sneak peeks below!
Amber, a cancer survivor and old friend of Melissa's, was born and raised in New Jersey. A mom of four, Amber is very fitness-oriented; she has a masters in bio-behavioral studies/exercise physiology from Columbia University.
The new Teresa, Teresa A. and her twin sister, Nicole, are the best of friends. As she explains above, Teresa married her husband, Rino, in 1991, got divorced and then married him all over again 11 years later. She helps him run their successful restaurants.
"Don't mess with twins," Nicole says in the video above. "Especially me." Nicole is a divorced mom of two teens and moved back in with her parents. After her divorce, Nicole made a name for herself as a jet broker.
Melissa told us with new girls comes new drama. "I think where you're going to get drama is with these new girls that are coming in," she recently told E! News.
"I keep saying they're swinging from the chandeliers and we're trying to catch up with them," Dina added. "They're a lot to handle, but they're a lot of fun. They're great TV. Their one-liners are amazing and they don't even realize how funny they are. They're those kind of girls."
The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres Sunday, July 13, at 8 p.m. on Bravo. A preview special airs Sunday, June 1, at 10 p.m.
(E! and Bravo are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
