There has been lots of speculation on who will be the new real housewife joining the ladies of New Jersey. One thing for sure, it won’t be mom of four Elvira Grau! Although she seemed keen on making an impression during this week’s episode, her on screen “audition” didn’t make the cut. This is Real Housewives not Desperate Housewives. But apparently Elvira didn’t get the memo…
Andy Cohen, the vice president of programming for Bravo, tweeted, “To the Lady named Elvira sending out press releases saying ur the new RHNJ: It ain’t true. Ur on 2nite’s ep for 10 mins tho. Enjoy+Sorry!”
Yes, she actually sent out a press release saying she was going to be the new housewife…classy.
Dina Manzo chimed in saying on Twitter, “This Elvira is too much. I would NEVER speak to a client that way! Cookoo Cookoo!” She added, “Looks like somebody was trying to get a lead role on the housewives…How did that work out for ya? just what this show needs, another beyotch with an entourage… ; )”
But Teresa would love to see her join the cast. She wrote on her blog,
We need a new Housewife to replace Dina, yes? I vote … Elvira! “I know, I know, she’s a “whackadoodle” as Bethenny puts it. (Yes, that was Elvira on Bethenny Getting Married last week!) But that’s what makes her fun. She makes me laugh. She’s off-the-wall and I’m over-the-top, so we complement each other. She is an amazing party planner too.
And not being cast on Real Housewives isn’t her only problem, she in trouble with the tax man too. The New York Post is reporting that her and her husband owes about $300,000 in past due taxes. Looks like they were spending their money on their lux lifestyle with their nannies, maids, cooks and drivers and not paying their taxes. But we may see more of her on the show, the New York Post says she will be returning, but Bravo is denying the claim.
Do you think she would have been a good addition to the show?
