Teresa Giudice is reportedly in danger of being fired from the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Producers are reportedly considering drastic options to cover for Teresa once she goes into prison a few days from now.
“After all of the options were considered, Bravo did approach Teresa about filming prior to her heading off to prison with the intent of working her into the new season,” a source reveals. “However, she was insisting she wanted an astronomical paycheck. Much to her surprise, they turned her down.”
“Production is currently holding focus groups about moving forward without Teresa,” an insider added of producers considering firing Teresa for being demanding. “They are trying to determine what the public perception was of the new cast and if any casting changes need to be made in regards to the new additions last season.”
“If Bravo finds out that the public perception of the current cast is positive, they will likely begin filming in February; however, they are also exploring the option of putting on the show on a hiatus until the fall,” the source added. “This would allow them to play around with the cast if need be and film around the normal timeframe the show films in, which is typically the fall.”
Previously, Teresa complained that producers were exploiting her personal problems for ratings. After claims that she had become difficult to deal with, it was reported in September that she was in danger of losing her place on the show.
Yesterday, it was reported that Teresa’s daughter, Gia, 13, landed a reality show.
