You've got to hand it to Andy Cohen, he always knows when The Real Housewives franchise needs a new cast member. The Real Housewives of New Jersey (the best of all the housewives by the way) are doing just that. There are talks going on about adding Traci Lynn Johnson to the group...good move.  In fact, I'll go so far as to say that I think Traci is a first round draft pic...see what I did there? Of course Traci Lynn is the wife of Giants legend Tiki Barber.

People are saying she is "in talks" with the show but we've seen her filming with the cast around town and word is they also already filmed in her home.  Also, Margaret Josephs just had a big pride party in Englewood and she was there. Now this is most likely a test run for season 12 to see how she mixes it up with the other ladies. Which begs the question, if you're being considered for the cast and you want the gig, should you be on your best behavior or should you be a sh*t stirrer?

It's also worth mentioning that having an NFL legend on the show is certainly a shiny object for Bravo and you KNOW the fellow husbands on RHONJ are LOVING the idea of having a former Giant in their ranks.

Who will she buddy up with?

Will she friend up with Dolores Catania (my favorite), Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudice, Jackie Goldschneider, or Jennifer Aydin? To survive you have to find your tribe. I remember there being a rumor that she would join the show years ago but maybe that was not the right time for her. I hope this audition goes well...we'll be watching!
