All the current cast members of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" have been asked to come back to the show, leaving Teresa Giudice to be public enemy No. 1 again.
But the producers are trying to get two of Teresa's friends to film with her. The three frontrunners are Priscilla DiStasio, Gia Casey and Linda Berger.

DiStasio is one of Teresa's best friends as well as her makeup artist.
According to a RadarOnline source, "She would be perfect because she's full of drama and has a mouth on her."
The source also said DiStasio would never turn her back on Teresa.
"And Teresa knows what she's doing. She's been making sure Priscilla will be faithful to her by featuring her in her cookbook and doing cool things with her that way if anything goes wrong, Teresa can say, 'But I was so good to you.' She will be the perfect puppet for Teresa to have on her side."
Berger is a divorced mom with two sons and the source described her as a "Teresa soldier" who "does whatever Teresa says." The insider added that though Teresa claimed she and Casey are best buds, The New York Times best-selling author might be associating with her because of her well-known husband.
"Gia is married to DJ Envy who hosts a morning show on Power 105 in New York and Teresa has always bragged that she is friends with Gia," the source said. "But so far Gia has steered clear of the Bravo show, even though she's been attending Teresa's children's parties for years. How close they really are has yet to be seen."
And with all of the "Housewives" drama and the legal issues concerning her husband, Joe, Teresa could use a few allies.
The hearing for Joe's driver's license fraud case was postponed the week of Oct. 1 for undisclosed reasons, the site reported.
Joe was arrested in March 2011 after three law enforcement agencies - the Passaic County Prosecutor, its Financial Crimes Unit and the Montville Township Police Department - found that he had allegedly obtained a license in June 2010 using his brother's ID. This was after his license had been suspended as a result of a DUI conviction.
Joe turned down a plea deal of five years imprisonment. His attorney claims his client is being unfairly punished because of his fame, according to RadarOnline.
Two years ago, Joe spent 10 days in custody because he drove without a license, a stint he compared to a vacation.
Joe will return to court on Oct. 29 in Paterson, N.J., to set a trial date. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.
