Teresa who? With Giudice locked up in jail, Bravo is proceeding with plans to recast The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and RadarOnline.com has learned they've focused in on seven women.
Producers have interviewed seven new women to join the show, according to insiders, including rock star Sebastian Bach's former wife, Maria Bierk, and former NFL star Tiki Barber's spouse, Traci Lyn Johnson.
"Bravo has a list of seven names, but Tiki's wife has already turned the offer down,” an insider said. "It just wasn't going to make sense for Tiki and Tracy to do the show at this point. But Sebastian's ex-wife Maria is extremely interested in joining the show."
"Cast members, including Melissa Gorga and Amber Marchese have also given producers names of their friends that would be interested in joining the show,” the source continued. "Shooting will likely begin at the end of May, or beginning of June. At least two new cast members will be added.”
With Giudice locked up behind bars, "this is the chance for the show to go in a totally different direction,” the source explained. "No more table flipping, or fighting with siblings."
Dina Manzo has previously said she has no interest in doing another season, and twins Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea might not be asked to come back.
"If the twins are not coming back, there could be as many as four new ladies added to the cast," the insider said.
