Fresh Face on The Real Housewives of NJ

Now that Dina Manzo has left the show after having her fill of Danielle Staub, who will be her replacement? Elvira GrauRumor has it that Elvira Grau, a Russian immigrant and creator of 2 of the hottest entertainment venues in N.J., will now be sharing the mall screen with this cast of socialites. Grau, who came to America at the age of 9 has been quoted saying “I am a Russian immigrant that grew up in Brooklyn on food stamps and now I am living in an affluent neighborhood in Cresskill, with a fabulous family, doing what I enjoy most,” she said. “That’s a true success story. If there is one thing I want people to take from this is that with hard work, perseverance and complete focus, you can go everywhere you want to go.” Looks like adding reality TV star will be a nice addition to her very own rags to riches story. Grau who is the Owner of Space Odyssey in Englewood,N.J. will be featured on the show as the event producer for Housewife Teresa’s Giudice child’s 5th birthday at Grau’s newly-launched Space Port in Paterson. Grau was also the event planner for Giudice’s housewarming party at their private home with more than 100 guests! Maybe having some fresh blood on the show will breath some fresh air into what has become a weekly display of high school drama and playground theatrics, mostly thanks to Danielle’s (I hope I don’t find a horse head in my bed) paranoia.  I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t happen at the Brownstone.
