Teresa GiudiceApparently Bravo likes Teresa Giudice's family -- a lot. According to RadarOnline, the network is now courting Giudice's cousin, Katherina Wakile, to appear on the third season of 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey.'

This news follows reports that Bravo has already asked Giudice's sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, to join the show. According to Radar, Giudice is not pleased that either woman is poised to become a regular 'Real Housewives' cast member. "Teresa isn't happy that her family is being asked to join the cast," a source told Radar. "She feels as if her entire family is being approached to be a part of the show."

Production on season 3 is set to begin soon, though Giudice has still not signed her contract for the show.
