Meet New 'RHONJ' Star And Melissa Gorga's Employee Derek Zagami
A new year and a new cast member!
As the cameras begin to roll for the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the Bravo franchise has welcomed another new cast member to the group: 21-year-old rising fashion star Derek Zagami.
"Yes I am involved in the show," Zagami told RadarOnline.com.
Zagami joins the cast as an employee at Melissa Gorga's new boutique, Envy.
"I am the manager," he confirmed.
Zagami was brought into the group by Gorga's business partner, Jackie Beard Robinson.
"I was introduced to Melissa through Jackie," Zagami said. "Melissa, I love working with her. She is a great person."
"She is great at buying," he continued. "She is always in here."
And according to Zagami, he films with both Robinson and Gorga when she is in the store.
But while Zagami has "yet" to score any camera time with his other costars, he has hung around with Teresa Giudice in the past.

"It's fun and it's going be good," he said.
