Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 twins Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Napolitano

It seems like every off season the rumor mill starts churning about all the changes being made to The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast, and yet the show has retained the same cast for the past three seasons — a remarkable and rare feat for any of the Bravo Housewives franchises! But, with ratings down and fans seemingly tired of the same conflicts, it looks as though Season 6 will actually see a shake up.

Caroline Manzo has already officially announced she will be leaving to star with her family in the spin-off series Manzo’d With Children, and All Things Real Housewives is reporting that Jacqueline Laurita will not be returning either, not even in a part-time role. The site also reports that Caroline’s departure has opened the door for Season 1 and 2 alum Dina Manzo to return, and that Dina will be doing exactly that, having already signed a contract!

Meanwhile, multiple media outlets are reporting the show will also be seeing an infusion of fresh faces — two of which to be exact. One belongs to Amber Marchese, who is still a bit of a mystery at this point, and the other face belongs to both Nicole and Teresa Napolitano, who are twins from Colts Neck, New Jersey. (See what I did there?)

On September 26 Faux Reality Entertainment reported that the sisters “have been interviewed and have made the short list. They have been offered the slots and are currently in contract negotiations – refusing to sign the contracts as presented to them by Production.”

It appears as though the two sides were able to reach some sort of agreement because yesterday The Hollywood Reporter announced “twin sisters Nicole and Teresa Napolitano and their friend Amber Marchese will be joining the Bravo reality show in its sixth season.” I should point out that the site only goes so far as to say the gals will be “joining” the show, which doesn’t mean they have earned the title of full-fledged housewives yet. (In recent years Bravo has taken to bringing on most new potential Housewives in a part-time role initially to see how they do on camera and how fans react before promoting them to full-time status.)

So who are Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Napolitano? To start with, Teresa Napolitano is now Teresa Aprea thanks to marrying this rather tough looking feller:

Other than that, not much is known about the twin Napolitano sisters, which is odd for women looking to join a reality show like The Real Housewives of New Jersey! Normally the kind of personality that would want to be a part of something like that would have an ubiquitous social media presence and be spotted all about town often. That does not seem to be the case for either Teresa or Nicole, though Teresa does have a few online profiles. (I couldn’t find much of anything on Nicole!)

Here’s the pair again (Teresa is in green on the left) in a photo from late September:

The sibling pair (seen in most all of the photos in this post) are described this way by Faux Reality Entertainment:

Both are affluent, beautiful and intelligent women with strong family values.

Teresa Napolitano Aprea and her husband are well known in philanthropic circles in New Jersey. Nicole owns a Diary Queen and is extremely successful. Teresa and Nicole are “40ish” and twins. Family is everything to these two and you won’t see the backstabbing that has become common place with Joe and Melissa Gorga.

According to online records, the sisters are 44 years old at the time of this post. And I was able to find a wedding registry for a Nicole Napolitano and Joseph Mauriello with a wedding date of March 30, 2012, which seems to line up with some online records searches that list Nicole Napolitano and Nicole Mauriello as aliases for each other. (There is also a baby registry for the couple with a due date of June 4, 2013.)

The sisters’ parents are Salvatore and Santa Napolitano (seen in the photo above), with the rumor mill already buzzing that Santa “is going to give Mama Antonia Gorga a run for her money on the fabulous Italian Nonna award.”

Here’s a little preview of what the revamped Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 cast will look like, sans the mysterious Amber Marchese:
