There are new ladies joining the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey to fill the high-octaine void left by the exit of Danielle Staub. And these just aren’t some Jersey girls they picked out from the local mall. No these new cast members – both moms – are part of the family…literally. Who are these two mothers that may (or may not) bring the drama in Season Three? And who are their kids? Will they be RHONJ household names soon too?
Kathy Waklie is Teresa’s Guidice’s first cousin. She has two teenagers, Victoria (age 17) and Joseph (age 15). She “works hard to keep her family’s world in order and carefully monitors her children’s social lives.” Other teenagers of the Real Housewives of New Jersey moms have been the limelight including Danielle and Jacqueline, with their lives becoming part of the storylines.
The other new cast member is Melissa Gorga, who is Teresa’s sister-in-law (Melissa is married to Joe Guidice’s brother). She has her hands full with three children all under the age of six (Antonia age five, Gino age three and Joey, who is almost one). She is a stay-at-home-mom and has a B.A. in education and psychology.
One big question, will Kathy and Melissa’s kids be a big part of the show like the other ladies? Teresa loves to bring her daughters into the spotlight, does that mean her little ones will be competing with Melissa’s for the camera’s attention? And will they be sporting the same kind of over the top fashions? And will Kathy’s kids bond with the older kids on the show? Whatever happens, you know there will be drama.
Here is a clip of the show too.
