Though it hasn’t been confirmed, the head honchos at BravoTV may have finally realized that there are black people who don’t live in Atlanta. Rumor has it, the network is adding a black family to Real Housewives of New Jersey cast.
According to All Hip Hop.com
One of NYC’s very own popular DJs and his wife will be starring on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives Of New Jersey”. According to an exclusive Sydney Lace source, DJ Envy from the popular Breakfast Club morning show on Power 105.1 in NYC, will allow cameras into his life for the popular TV show.
In addition to co-hosting the Breakfast Club, he also runs his own management and production company called Blok Entertainment and he’s a MTV2 VJ for “Sucker Free Countdown”. There’s not much information out there about his wife Gia Casey but, last year, Gia was photographed seated at a table with some RHONJ castmembers at the Children’s Aid and Family Services’ annual Spring Gala, Love is All You Need.
DJ Envy (born RaaShaun Casey) and his wife are an odd choice for that show because all of the RHONJ castmembers are related by blood or marriage. Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita are related. Teresa Guidice, Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile are related and Teresa’s daughter’s godmother is Caroline’s sister (and former RHONJ castmember Dina Manzo). So where does that leave DJ Envy and Casey? It’s possible that Bravo wants to add randoms to the cast because Teresa isn’t talking to any of the current castmembers.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey castmembers are all married, so that’s a plus for DJ Eny and Casey considering reality shows have a way of destroying marriages. In fact, with the major exception of New Jersey, the divorce rate of Real Housewives is especially high. If this couple does decide to go on the show, let’s hope they aren’t headed to divorce court as a result.
If the couple is on the show, this will be the first time since (canceled) Real Housewives of DC featured Stacie and Jason Turner that city other than Atlanta had a black couple represented…and that a wife on the New Jersey cast doesn’t look like she could also be on Mob Wives.
What do you think? Are you a fan of RHONJ? Would you watch if they add DJ Envy and Gia?
