The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Season 7 will not feature Sheila Giudice as Teresa’s replacement.
Earlier this week, the Inquisitr reported on the possibility of Sheila stepping into the spotlight as her sister-in-law serves her 15-month prison term. However, a new source claims Sheila has no interest in starring on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
In an interview with Reality Tea on January 21, the source set the record straight.
“Sheila wants nothing to do with the show. She never did and never will. She sticks up for Teresa out of loyalty and as the aunt to Teresa’s children. Sheila and Joe Guidice’s family are helping and supporting Joe and the kids.”
As for reports claiming Sheila and her husband aren’t on good terms with the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the source said the foursome have had their differences in the past, but have since made amends.
“Sheila and Teresa went through a time period where they didn’t like each other. It happens. But, for the past 4 years they have been super close. They unlike Teresa and Melissa truly made up.”
Although Giudice and her other sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, appeared to be on good terms throughout the series’ sixth season, Reality Tea‘s source didn’t sound so sure when it came to their lasting reconciliation.
On January 19, Radar Online reported the following.
“Sheila may be vying for a spot on the show now that Teresa is away. Teresa and Sheila never got along. In fact, they hated each other. Teresa used to badmouth her all the time, both to friends and cast members on the show. This is why the scene where Teresa filmed with Joe’s family this season was laughable, as she always loathed them and suddenly was putting on a front like they were inseparably close.”
According to the source, Sheila and her husband put on a family-oriented front during the Giudice’s trial in order to appear as if they were supportive, but the source said it was all a ploy.
“Sheila and her husband were present the day of Teresa’s sentencing, which was suspect because of their past relationship, and ever since Teresa went to jail, she has been all over social media defending Teresa. It’s almost like Sheila is hoping to garner Teresa’s fans in her court so she could go on the show and steal her spotlight!”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 has yet to be confirmed by Bravo.
