Jennifer Aydin is married to plastic surgeon, Dr. Bill Aydin. He runs Aydin Center for Plastic Surgery and together, they have five children. She’s also close friends with Teresa Giudice’s cousin Kathy Wakile.

No more Jersey?

Bravo has put filming for the new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey on hold during a casting crisis, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned.

“Filming was supposed to start on February 1, and nothing has happened,” a show insider snitched to Radar about the ratings-challenged reality show.

After star Siggy Flicker quit the show last month, “a new woman hasn’t been hired yet, so production is on hold. And producers are still threatening to cancel the whole show!” the source said.

Teresa Giudice, whose husband Juicy Joe remains behind bars, was hit hard by the frozen pay day, the source added.

“Teresa desperately needs the Bravo money, she wants to start filming as soon as possible,” the source spilled to Radar.
