Nearly 12 months after The Real Housewives of New Jersey fans were left with the cliffhanger that the Bravo reality series' leading diva Teresa Giudice was en route to prison, details are emerging about the cast of season seven.
Shooting for season seven could begin as early as mid-November, E! News reports, although the producers of the reality show have yet to solidify a start date. Giudice, Jacqueline Laurita and Melissa Gorga are "almost certain" to return, according to Entertainment News.
Tiki Barber's wife, Traci Lynn Johnson, will reportedly not sign onto the cast. An anonymous source familiar with production told E!, "It just didn't work out."
Without Johnson out of the mix, New Jersey-based relationship expert Siggy Flicker is purportedly in early talks to join the housewives. "There has been a meeting," a second source told E!.
Dec. 23, 11:18 a.m.: This story has been updated to reflect Giudice's release from prison.
