Producers would like Teresa to film the extra scenes needed to spice up the show and pull in ratings. However, Teresa already satisfied her contract so she’s turned down the offer.
“Bravo is desperately trying to save this season from being a total bomb,” reveals a source of the show’s ratings.
Several of the franchises are doing poorly right now and Bravo is becoming desperate to shake things up by pulling stunts and hiring old cast members.
“They have taken the unprecedented step of filming new scenes,” the source added. “Everyone has agreed to do it, except for Teresa. She is busy enjoying her summer vacation with her four daughters on the Jersey Shore ahead of her criminal sentencing. So, Teresa is refusing to participate and says she has completed what is contractually obligated.”
The Daily Mail reported in July, Teresa “could face up to 27 months in prison while her husband could be incarcerated for 46 months.” As such, Teresa doesn’t want to lose precious moments with them.
Teresa has also reportedly decided not to return for the next season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
