Bravo TV producers are reportedly on the hunt for new cast members to join the hit reality TV show "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," according to a report.
Teresa Giudice, Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile, Caroline Manzo and Melissa Gorga recently filmed the season four reunion show special but none of the cast mates have been confirmed for season five, raising questions that some cast members could potentially be replaced for the new season.
"[Bravo execs] are looking all the time for new cast members for all the franchises but nothing gets serious until after the reunion show has been taped and the season comes to an end. Now they are deciding what to do with next season, with the biggest problem being Teresa Giudice," a source reportedly told The Huffington Post.
"No one wants to tape with Teresa anymore. She has done so many things to each member of the cast that at this point it is everyone versus Teresa. I know they are looking at several friends of hers to join the show so she has someone to film with. At the moment, no one has been invited back, but we are all pretty sure Teresa will have two new friends," two "RHONJ" cast mates allegedly said.
The news following reports that Manzo, who was accused of Bullying Giudice, 40, throughout season three of the hit Bravo TV show, is reportedly so determined to have the mother of four kicked off of the show that she recently turned to Gorga, 33, and Wakile, 46, in a bid to gang up on Giudice.
"She's been trying to get the other ladies to all gang up on Teresa and make some kind of ultimatum of 'Teresa or us' to Bravo producers, she believes that could work, but I think she is seriously underestimating the star power of Teresa," a source previously told Reality Weekly.
Gorga, who is married to Giudice's estranged brother Joe, has also reportedly been plotting to ruin Giudice's fame status.
Although Gorga has always insisted that she does in fact want a relationship with Giudice despite their vicious blowouts, new reports suggest that the reality TV star is too consumed with jealousy to befriend Giudice and that Gorga is doing everything that she can to rid of her.
"Melissa is a bad person and holds a grudge against Teresa because of her fame," a source told RadarOnline.com.
"Years ago, Melissa and her husband, Joe Gorga, sent a tape to the producers promising that if they were cast on the show, they would do whatever it takes to get rid of Teresa," the source added.
