Bravo has confirmed that Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga will both return to the show.
Sources confirmed offers were sent to Teresa, Melissa, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, Jennifer Aydin, Rachel Fuda and Danielle Cabral. Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Fessler are set to return to the show as friends.
There was some speculation that Melissa might not return to the show. It was reported that Teresa changed her mind to not wanting to see her sister-in-law on the show, instead saying she would “ignore” her.
Andy Cohen explained why there was a delay since last season.
“When you see Part 3 of the reunion, you’re going to be like, ‘Oh, I see why they’re taking a second,'” Cohen said at the time. “That was a bloodbath, let’s take a minute and let everyone have their chance.” Before we send in cameras, take a deep breath. And with that I want to say something: Usually cameras are sent the next day, but it was too hot. Too hot to touch.”
