Bravo and the producers of The Real Housewives of New Jersey are getting ready to fire Teresa Giudice in earnest, even though they’ve managed to keep her around for this long. Teresa Giudice will be fired and a divorce from Joe might forestall her leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey. But that being said, there’s no way they’re going to keep a convicted felon on air, especially if she ends up being sentenced to serious prison time.
We’d previously reported that Teresa was looking for any and every way out of getting jail time, including taking advantage of the jury’s sympathy and a divorce from Joe Giudice. But at this point in the game, it’s much too late to pull any major PR stunts. The only thing Teresa can do is pray that the producers can’t find anyone to replace her so she won’t be fired , but it might already be too late for that as well.
Star Magazine reports that Jacqueline Laurita has been brought back on the show, ostensibly to ‘support’ Teresa. In other words, they’re getting ready to transition Jacqueline into Teresa’s place as they prep the process of firing Teresa. It also doesn’t hurt that Jacqueline is extremely close to Teresa, and in some ways, she’ll be able to carry on Teresa’s presence without Teresa actually being there. It’s better than Bravo risking their neck for a jailed housewife, especially one that has refused to do much promotion for the show that’s her bread and butter at the moment. Even if she somehow manages to escape prison time, she’ll still have hell to pay with fines and legal fees – all of which she needs a steady income to pay. Sources have confirmed that Teresa and Joe are in a serious financial rut, and getting fired from the Real Housewives franchise will continue to push her over the edge.
