Bravo continues to maintain publicly that no decisions have been made about the future of RHONJ while Teresa Giudice is still in prison insiders say otherwise. While it may seem that Bravo is holding off on season seven of RHONJ until Teresa exits prison that may not be the case, and RHONJ may be moving on without Teresa.
Insiders are now claiming that several cast members have been informed that they will likely start filming season seven this fall with Teresa. “They plan to start filming in November, which means they will be putting together story lines after the summer. Not everyone is coming back, and it is still a big question mark as to what they will do with the problem known as Teresa.”
Teresa is set to be released from prison in December just in time for Christmas and will remain under home confinement until February 2016. Sources say Teresa has already inked a deal to return to RHONJ, but it’s not certain that she will return if she does she will only miss a few weeks of filming.
Sources also say that fans should expect to see Kathy Wakile and Jacqueline Laurita return to the RHONJ cast.“They want to make sure the cast is full of people connected to Teresa. Her relatives and her once-best-friend, Jacqueline, will help them tell the story of Teresa’s time away, and return home, without looking like Bravo is making light of her crime. It will be more focused on family.”
I’m not sure how I feel about both Kathy and Jacqueline returning to RHONJ. I just feel like if the cast is too much of the same people the same drama will be rehashed again. I also think I’d rather see Teresa and some of the old/current Housewives return with a few new ones added to turn the RHONJ vibe around and make it fun again.
Do you want Jacqueline and Kathy back on RHONJ? Do you like the idea of Teresa’s friends and relatives telling the story of Teresa’s time away? Do you think RHONJ will start filming while Teresa is still in prison?
