Joe Giudice’s upcoming Real Housewives of New Jersey spinoff will include his sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga. Just after Gorga shared a photo of her son filming for Bravo, a source has confirmed to Radar Online on July 22 that she and her family will have roles on Joe Giudice’s show.
“Melissa is filming with the girls. She has been really close to them and has been a part of their lives since their mom went away.”
Joe Giudice has been filming the upcoming special for the last couple of weeks as his wife, Teresa, remains incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Facility in Danbury, Connecticut. As fans will recall, Teresa and Joe Giudice both received prison time as a result of their guilty plea to charges of bank and wire fraud.
Once Teresa completes her sentence, which is 15 months, Joe Giudice will begin serving a 41-month term. In the meantime, Joe Giudice and his four children are busy filming their show, which will take fans inside their life without Teresa.
“Teresa doesn’t care any more that Melissa is filming with the girls and [Joe Giudice]. She just wants to get out of prison and be back with them.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Joe Giudice was recently targeted by a cheating scandal, which alleged he had recently been spotted with another woman. Earlier this month, a source revealed the following of Joe Giudice to Radar Online.
“When [Joe Giudice] was done with Gia’s graduation, instead of staying with his family, he took his friend on a date to Rare The Steak House in Little Falls, NJ. They were partying their butts off. They were drinking wine and he was acting cozy enough with her that people took notice and were appalled.”
According to Radar Online‘s source, Joe Giudice’s oldest daughter, Gia, had gotten word of her father’s outing with the unidentified woman, and had reported contacted her mother to let her know what was going on as she sat behind bars.
“She’s emailing Teresa telling her that Joe’s out, but not saying he’s out with a girl. Gia is trying to protect her mother because Teresa is in jail and Gia doesn’t want her to get physically ill over it, so she’s trying to cover it up.”
So far, no premiere date has yet been set for Joe Giudice’s spinoff. However, it will likely air late this year or early next year, as Teresa is released from prison.
