Teresa Giudice has reportedly asked Bravo not to cover her upcoming court hearing, but the network is apparently planning to go against her wishes. According to Radar Online, producers of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey want to film segments when Teresa and her husband, Joe, go to court in September, and said segments will supposedly air during the show’s reunion specials at the end of the current season.
“Teresa doesn’t want cameras from Bravo to be at her sentencing on September 23, and has told producers of the show her thoughts. Bravo doesn’t care what Teresa wants or thinks, and they are done protecting her. So, Bravo will absolutely send cameras and plans on utilizing for the reunion show. It’s no secret that the ratings are in the gutter, and Bravo knows there will be a lot of drama during Teresa’s sentencing.”
Teresa Giudice believes that Bravo has exploited her situation according to sources. Since this season has had a heavy focus on Teresa and Joe’s life, many believed that Teresa wanted it like this — that she was happy to be the center of attention. Now, it appears that Teresa feels like she was taken advantage of, and that the television coverage of this private matter has not been in her best interest.
Interestingly enough, Teresa and her husband Joe know that cameras (aside from Bravo television cameras) will be waiting for them at their hearing next month, so, sources say, Teresa will be dressed up, with her hair and makeup done, in preparation for the onslaught of media coverage.
Teresa Giudice could be sentenced to prison at this court hearing, and if that turns out to be the case, the media is going to have a field day with the news. If Bravo cameras are on the scene, the footage is likely going to produce great ratings when it airs — and that’s what Bravo wants. Since this season’s ratings have been pretty terrible, Bravo might be counting on Teresa — and her court hearing — for a revival of sorts.
The other way the network plans to save the show is by bringing back former HousewifeJacqueline Laurita. According to The Inquisitr, Laurita will film a bit for the end of the season and will likely be offered a sweet deal to return full time next season. Another person rumored to be returning is Kathy Wakile (Teresa’s cousin).
As far as Teresa Giudice’s future, some people really think that she’s going to jail along with her husband, Joe. According to Classicalite, Nancy Grace thinks that Teresa and Joe are totally sunk — and that they are both going to do time as part of their plea deal.
“I think [Teresa and Joe] were in it together and you know what? You can get away with shoplifting, maybe stealing a car but don’t mess with the feds when it comes to money. Never mess with the tax man. Never mess with the feds alright? They have no mercy. I predict they’re going down. Much as Martha Stewart was used I think they will be used as an example to other people.”
