Could ‘RHONJ’ Season 7 Include Joe Giudice?

Will the RHONJ Season 7 cast include Teresa Giudice’s husband Joe? According to a new report, it may.

“Joe is trying to make a side deal for himself because he has no job and no money,” an insider revealed to OK! Magazine, according to an April 21 report by Real Mr. Housewife.

Although no official start date has been given for RHONJ Season 7, Joe is reportedly “negotiating” with Bravo “behind his wife’s back” in hopes of landing some sort of role on RHONJ Season 7. While Teresa Giudice appeared on the show for years, she reportedly “doesn’t want to be part of the franchise anymore,” which has Joe attempting to work out a RHONJ Season 7 deal without her.

“She believes that putting her life under the microscope is the reason she’s behind bars.”

As the Inquisitr previously reported, the Giudices are reportedly at odds over their future in reality television. Still, several reports have claimed Joe will soon star in a reality series of his own, aside from RHONJ Season 7, which will feature him alongside his four daughters.

As for what the rest of the RHONJ Season 7 will look like, it’s hard to tell. Although Jacqueline Laurita and Melissa Gorga are expected to return, the rest of the cast is so far unclear. For the past several months, there have been many reports in regard to who will return, but Bravo, and Andy Cohen, have been mum on any changes.

Earlier this year, Andy Cohen hinted that the network would be moving forward with RHONJ Season 7, but didn’t give details regarding the series’ potential cast. Speaking to Us Weekly, Cohen revealed the following.

“I can’t imagine not filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey. It’s a big franchise for Bravo, and I think whatever we do, we’re going to do it the right way, so we’re still figuring that out right now.”

At the same time, Cohen claimed it was unlikely that Teresa Giudice would be featured on RHONJ Season 7, because she would be behind bars until early 2016. As fans will recall, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star was sentenced to 15 months behind bars for crimes of bank and wire fraud in October of last year.

“I don’t know the specifics of what they allow, but I can’t see them allowing [us to film people visiting her in prison].”

RHONJ Season 7 has yet to be officially confirmed by Bravo.
