The Real Housewives of New Jersey have officially begun filming for their ninth season and we can confirm which Garden State ladies are returning to the dramatic reality show.
Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania & Margaret Josephs are all set to return in full time positions for the new season. The cameras have just started rolling and captured Melissa's birthday which was also featured in last year's premiere, so it's a safe bet that season nine will probably air in October, like last season.
OG Housewife Danielle Staub returned in a part time position last season and seems like her role is still undetermined at this time, which she is allegedly pissed about, but it's not like she's going to walk away from the show.
Producers are apparently casting new ladies for the show and if they can't find enough good girls to join the show then they will probably bump Danielle up to full time status.
There was lots of tea swirling that Caroline Manzo & Jacqueline Laurita were set to return to the show, with Teresa even "daring" them to come back, but it seems like the producers didn't want any of the old school drama to be brought back to Jersey.
Siggy Flicker announced her departure from the franchise last year and won't be returning for any future instalments of the show. It's unknown if Kim D will be featured, but I'm sure if this season is lacking in drama then the cameras will walk straight on over to POSCHE to get some premium shit talking from Kim.
The upcoming season is expected to feature Joe Gorga moving his restaurant to a new location after his shady business deal went south and Danielle will probably get married because we all know that she is so thirsty for a Bravo wedding. I'm not sure where all the drama will come from because this cast mostly like each, but I'm sure some fireworks will fly in this group!
