 The stars of the Bravo reality series "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," who played a very limited engagement in My Big Gay Italian Wedding at St. Luke's Theatre in September, return to the Off-Broadway production Oct. 20.

Through Oct. 23, Teresa Giudice, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo and Lauren Manzo will again assume the roles of the Wedding Officiator, Toniann Naso, Angela Pinnunziato and Maria Pinnunziato, respectively.

The housewives will celebrate their return to the show at 6 PM at Planet Hollywood Times Square.

In an earlier statement, Caroline Manzo said, "The last two weeks of rehearsal have been so exciting for all of us. Our limited engagement sold out very quickly and the ladies and I have had so much fun with the show, that we decided that we should return for a second engagement next month. If you are surprised at how well we can all dance now, just wait and see what we look like in October!"
