The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been focused on Teresa Giudice and her family’s legal problems for quite some time. Bravo decided to add a few of her family members to previous seasons in hopes of sparking some tension and it worked. But now that her family members have left the show and Giudice is behind bars, it sounds like the producers are struggling as to what to do.
There have been many reports questioning what will happen with The Real Housewives of New Jersey, now that Teresa Giudice is behind bars. Of course, Bravo spent much time showcasing Teresa’s legal troubles on several season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which meant that the other ladies were focused on talking about Giudice. In other words, they had very little time to develop their own storylines. This could be why Bravo is struggling at the moment.
According to a new Radar Online report, The Real Housewives of New Jersey is rumored to continue even though Teresa won’t be out of jail until next winter. Since she is behind bars now, it isn’t even certain whether she would want to film The Real Housewives of New Jersey when she is released. Teresa will have very little time with her husband before he goes in to serve over three years.
“The show will absolutely go on without Teresa,” a source close to The Real Housewives of New Jersey has revealed, adding, “Bravo isn’t expected to make it public until the end of February, but filming has been loosely scheduled for late April, early May. No formal dates have been made for filming to begin because producers are still looking for potential new cast members.”
The report also claims that Bravo producers are looking for new wives for The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Apparently, they are thinking about getting rid of Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea, as their storylines were not a big hit. Amber Marchese may be left on because of the drama with her husband and the other wives.
Dina Manzo has been questioning her return, so she may not be interested in filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey if Teresa isn’t doing it, and if Jim Marchese is planning a return. But Manzo and Giudice may have an interesting storyline. Dina wasn’t with her when she turned herself in.
According to the Inquisitr, there have been some rumors that Lauren Manzo could potentially replace her mother Caroline Manzo on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. However, the Manzo family appears to be happy filming their own show, Manzo’d with Children.
