"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice may no longer be outnumbered on the hit reality TV show. New reports suggest that Bravo TV producers are considering casting two of her closest friends for season five.
Giudice and her season four co-stars are yet to confirm whether they are all returning for season five. It is understood that at least three of her close friends- Priscilla DiStasio, Linda Berger and Gia Casey- are vying for two new positions, according to a report.
"Priscilla is Teresa's new best friend and her makeup artist. She would be perfect because she's full of drama and has a mouth on her," a source reportedly told RadarOnline.com.
"And Teresa knows what she's doing. She's been making sure Priscilla will be faithful to her by featuring her in her cookbook and doing cool things with her that way if anything goes wrong, Teresa can say, 'But I was so good to you,'" the insider continued.
Linda, who is reportedly a mother of two, is said to be a loyal friend of Giudice, 40. There is likely to be major drama if the divorcée is cast in the new season, as the source reportedly described her as being a "Teresa soldier" who "does whatever Teresa says."
Gia is the third friend of Giudice's who is reportedly in the running to become a new housewife, although it is unclear exactly how close the pair is.
"Gia is married to DJ Envy who hosts a morning show on Power 105 in New York and Teresa has always bragged that she is friends with Gia," the source said. "How close they really are has yet to be seen."
Giudice has been at the center of the show's drama since season three- the same season that her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and cousin Kathy Wakile joined the show.
In conjunction with having tense relationships with both women, Giudice's friendships with her other co-stars Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita also crumbled, resulting in a "four-against-one" setting at the season four reunion show which recently aired.
"I need help," Giudice recently told In Touch magazine about the show. "Everyone is against me and ganging up on me."
