Season 7 of Real Housewives of New Jersey ended almost a month ago, and we’re already getting anxious for Season 8! While attending the Posche by Kim D Holiday Fashion Show Tuesday night at The Brownstone, I caught up with stars Jacqueline Laurita, Siggy Flicker, Dolores Catania, and Kim Depaola, to find out if they’ll be back for the next one.
Siggy, whose 14-year-old daughter Sophie modeled in the show, tells me she’s still undecided. “I’m taking it easy right now. I’m not sure right now,” she says. “I’m very grateful for my experience but I really have to wait until after the holidays, where I sit down with my husband, where we really discuss it and move forward with it.”
Jacqueline tells me she would come back and reveals “there’s been some talk about Season 8,” but couldn’t divulge anymore.
Kim, whose infamous fashion show garnered a crowd of 250 people, tells me they are currently casting and she would like to see all of the current cast come back. “They’re looking to get some new people. No one has signed contracts. I truly believe this cast is coming back, there’s no question.”
When I asked if she’ll be back as well, she told me “you never know.” Kim has been a long-time “friend” of the RHONJ ladies and says she wants to keep it that way. ” I dont see myself as a Housewife. I’m more like a friend to the housewives, doing my own thing. I never was a Housewife, so you know what, I’l let them have the label and I’ll just be their friend.”
Although it seems nothing is confirmed (we reached out to Bravo but haven’t heard back yet), Season 7 newbie Dolores says the ladies are ready to go, “I think they should want to film soon, everybody is hot to trot.”
