With Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Joe Giudice most likely having to do at least some jail time after his trial, come rumors that he is already staging his own reality TV show from behind bars! Check out this crazy rumor out there…
“The show would focus on Joe’s day-to-day life in prison,” a “pal” tells the National Enquirer. “It would follow him as he comes to grips with being stripped of his freedom and interacting with other inmates.”
The Passaic County chief assistant prosecutor alleges that Joe will most likely be guilty. He tells the publication, “We have enough evidence in this case beyond a reasonable doubt to prove guilt.”
Apparently Joe knows this, and he is scrambling to set up his own spin off! “Joe wants the show to be a ‘Housewives’ spinoff on Bravo so he could include scenes of Teresa and maybe even other cast members visiting him. Filming would also make doing his time a little easier. It would break up the daily routine and give him something to look forward to.”
The source adds that Joe has even storyboarded his own scenes up. The source claims, “Joe envisions himself sitting around with his posse and dispensing advice like the godfather. And if Joe is convicted, he wants to fire his lawyer in the opening scene.”
This literally makes me LOL. I just don’t see the Giudices taking on this because of their daughters. Yeah, they might need the money, but I don’t see this flying. What jail would allow a reality show? Joe clearly hates the cameras too, but sucks it up for his wife since it’s her job.
Not to mention, I doubt Bravo (who probably has “rights” over the Giudices as TV characters) would air this. I don’t see jailhouse reality being in line with their brand and programming.
Do you believe this story? Would you watch a spin off of Jailhouse Juicy Joe?
