Real Housewives of New Jersey, meet the Jersey Shore.

The real one. Not the reality show.

Teresa Aprea is one of three new "Real Housewives" castmates from Colts Neck. Aprea's twin sister, Nicole Mauriello, and Amber Marchese will also join Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dina Manzo and sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri, who will appear occasionally.

Filming took place at all three homes of the Colts Neck trio, including Mauriello's home. Marchese, who grew up in Lavallette and in Berkeley, is a breast cancer survivor, according to The Asbury Park Press.

"I was diagnosed at 31, and I had two babies and two stepchildren. I was a wife and a mother, and the next thing I knew, I was fighting for my life," Marchase said in The Asbury Park Press. "This opportunity allows me to reach other young women of childbearing age and say: 'If you find a lump, please take it seriously."

The changes come as more legal trouble has hit members of the cast. 

Two co-stars of Bravo network’s hit reality series, Melissa and Joe Gorga, have lost tens of thousands of dollars in lease payments on their home and are looking to evict the current tenant.

The dailyrecord.com reported that the Gorgas are seeking an eviction of Kai Patterson, 54, who has been living in the couple’s 13,500-square-foot Montville home.

Joe Gorga had previously filed a landlord/tenant complaint against Patterson, saying he did not pay the $20,000 monthly rent since March. Patterson did not pay rent in May or June, and his April rent check bounced, the report said.

Sale of the home and the high-end housing market in New Jersey was a topic of discussion on the reality show in July 2013, when Melissa Gorga asked her real estate agent, Jerry Sahlman, why the home wasn't getting any bites at its list price of $3.8 million.

Melissa Gorga said when the house was listed for sale, the family was mainly looking to move because of how close it had become with family member Teresa Giudice, also a cast member of Real Housewives of New Jersey. The relationship between the families had become strained, Gorga said.

The Gorga's planned on building a new home in Franklin Lakes when they listed the Montville home.

Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, were indicted last year on charges they defrauded lenders, illegally obtained mortgages and hid assets and income during a bankruptcy proceeding. In May, a Bergen County judge dismissed all charges against Teresa Giudice, saying she had no role in the alleged crimes.

All of Bravo's "Real Housewives" shows are nothing more than modern day soap operas.
