The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice has reportedly made a friend behind bars. According to a new report, Giudice, who is serving a 15-month prison term for crimes of bank and wire fraud, has bonded with a woman named Jennifer Kirk.
On March 19, Radar Online claimed The Real Housewives of New Jersey star had grown close to fellow inmate Kirk, 34, who is reportedly serving more than 15 years behind bars after conning a whopping 22,000 victims out of $30 million.
Radar revealed Kirk, along with then-boyfriend Matthew Hicks, who died of a heroin overdose in 2007, ran a telemarketing scheme, in which they targeted victims from all 50 states, as well as Puerto Rico and Canada.
“Teresa is good friends with two girls, including Jennifer. Jennifer is Teresa’s trainer behind bars. She’s helping her stay in shape.”
Giudice has starred as an official cast member on The Real Housewives of New Jersey since the show began years ago, but now, as filming is reportedly scheduled to begin next month, her role could be cut.
E! News reported of Traci Lynn Johnson’s likely addition to the show. According to the site, producers were hoping the wife of former NFL pro Tiki Barber could “glam” up the series.
“Yes, the rumor is true. Traci is down the road with the production company. She and Tiki moved to NJ a few years ago. They are next door neighbors with Snooki.
“When producers approached Traci, they told her they were revamping the show. Their goal is to include more well-known names and make New Jersey look more glamorous, like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
Despite the multiple casting reports, The Real Housewives of New Jersey has yet to be officially renewed for a seventh season.
