Rumors surrounding the next cast of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” continue even as filming is apparently already underway for Season 7 of the once wildly popular reality series.

Teresa Giudice

Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri will be “friends” of the main cast, which is not expected to include season six newcomers Amber Marchese, Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano, according to an ETonline report this week, which cited two sources close to the show. They haven’t been asked back, the report added, which also said Dina Manzo will not return.

As The Record reported in July, current prison inmate Teresa Guidice is expected to return to the show that made her famous when she is done serving time. She will be joined by Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita.

Gorga seemed to confirm that filming had already begun with a couple of late July Instagram posts that showed her son and cameras set up in her home with the hashtags #rhonj and #setlife.

The rumors continue that Traci Johnson, wife of former Giant Tiki Barber, could join the cast, but that hasn’t been determined, according to ETonline, which also reported that Bravo sought out “Jersey Shore” alum Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi as well as Geraldo Rivera’s wife Erica Levy to join the cast. Levy declined, the website said.

Gorga’s Instagram account fueled the Johnson and Polizzi rumors as she posted photos of the three of them together having “a liquid lunch,” as well as some pictures with Gorga and Johnson’s daughters playing together in a pool. Gorga also posted a few shots with Cake Boss Buddy Valastro’s family, sparking some to think his wife, Lisa, may become part of the group.

Giudice had already continued her television life, in some capacity, while in prison, as she took part in filming of husband Joe Guidice’s Bravo special, The Record previously reported.
