Bravo’s preview may reveal which New Jersey housewife is leaving the show

Bravo’s annoying promo voice-over guy has been teasing that one of the cast members of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will leave the show forever on Monday’s episode, but the network may have already revealed who it is. (Stop reading if your life will be ruined by finding out which cast member you will not have to listen to after Monday.)

Blogger ninedaves realized what Bravo’s pre-season promo reveals: There are no “scenes of [Dina] doing anything we haven’t seen before!” He notes that we see Dina Manzo “fighting with [Danielle]” and “telling [Jacqueline] to watch out” but there’s “no footage of new stuff. which means, she’s the one!”

Check his blog post for that preview, which does seem to spoil the surprise, although it is not as blatant as Bravo’s previous episode-spoiling promos.
