It’s been quite some time since the Real Housewives of New Jersey has graced our television screens. November, 20, 2014 to be exact. That’s when Season 6 concluded. So as to be expected, you might be a little rusty on your cast history. Well thanks to Jacqueline Laurita, who’s back as a wife for Season 7 after a brief absence, you can now brush up on your Housewives history with this handy cast timeline from Wikipedia.
As Jacqueline points out, her and Teresa Giudice are the two OG’s of the series, and have been mainstays on the show since Season 1.
“Yup! Everyone is on here! SO cool! Wow! Teresa and I are the only OG’s! It’s crazy that I’ve done this for so many years! Time flies! The year I was a “friend” on RHONJ, I was also a “friend” for 2 seasons of “Manzo’d With Children”. That was a lot of fun. #RHONJ”
Also returning this season is Melissa Gorga, who made her debut in Season 3. Kathy Wakile and her sister Rosie Pierri will be back as well, as friends of the ladies. Rounding out the cast are newbies Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania, who will both be making their Housewives debut. And back as a special guest is RHONJ resident drama-stirrer Kim DePoala, who we haven’t seen since Season 5.
Who won’t be returning is Amber Marchese, and twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano. These three ladies made their debut in Season 6, but unfortunately won’t be back. Dina Manzo, who’s been on and off the show since Season 1, will also not be returning.
We can’t wait to see the ladies in action when Season 7 premieres on July 10!
