RHONJ Prison Collage

While questions continue to swirl around the future of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” some answers are starting to be revealed, helping to clarify the outlook of the franchise.

An exclusive source has given All About the Tea a peek into the behind the scenes, network scrambling for a projected plan. Bravo is seeking to bring a decisive and strategic order to a filming schedule that was thrown into an uncertain upheaval by Teresa Giudice’s stage left exit to federal prison.

Our source asserts that filming is being scheduled to kick in around April of 2015, and is expected to continue for several months, with the last episode being strategically arranged to feature Teresa’s jubilant spring from the slammer. So is there life beyond the table flipping drama that Teresa brings to this Jersey reality hour? Evidently, the answer is a YES, but Giudice is not out of the picture yet…she has barely been in the Big House for a couple of weeks, and Bravo is already plotting to cash in on her first day out.

    ‘expected to continue for several months, with the last episode being strategically arranged to feature Teresa’s jubilant spring from the slammer’- SO does that mean Bravo is going to be filming from April to Feb,2016?!
    Bravo’s so full of it!

    • BeachSpin

      Hey Twi…my guess is that with consideration towards production editing time that the bulk of the filming would end well before that. I think it’s common to film pick up scenes along the way to piece in also, such as the release.

      • twifan2

        Hi Hi BeachSpin! 🙂
        In other words. all Timelines will be ‘re-organized’ by Bravo’s discretion?
        :/

        • BeachSpin

          Not much would surprise me at this point.

          • twifan2

            ONLY Bravo cancelling RHoNJ would surprise me! 😀

    • Marsbars09

      ITA. Bravo is out of their mind. :/

  • WestCoastFeed

    Her lawyer said she could be released to a half-way house or for home arrest next December. That is after she has served all but 10% of her sentence. So it could be timed with a Christmas celebration for the extra festivities that would bring.

  • Marsbars09

    I think it’s morally apprehensible for Bravo to place their hopes on a CONVICTED FELON. Legitimate networks would have thrown the Giudices out with the trash long ago. If Tre returns to RHNJ after she is release I will not watch the show.

  • Marsbars09

    Bravo can’t do no better than to have that lowlife return to the series. Why not have Danielle and Kim G. join the cast? Now that I would watch!

    • twifan2

      Hi Hi Mars! 🙂
      Those 2 would be a BETTER addition than what Bravo has now!

      • Marsbars09

        Amen! Plus Kim G. has serious coin.

        • twifan2

          AND she knows about the skeletons in their closets! 😀

  • Dave

    If she makes any episode in season 7 that will be her last as new charges are coming. That’s big gossip here in New Jersey.

    • twifan2

      Spill it Dave! What’s the big gossip?! 🙂

      • Dave

        She committed insurance fraud. She allegedly lied in her original bankruptcy filing when she claimed certain jewelry was stolen which she collected insurance money on. Word is the raid was real and more charges are coming.

        • twifan2

          BOOM!
          Thanks for the tea, Dave! 🙂

    • BeachSpin

      Let’s take bets…tax evasion or insurance fraud???

    • OMG! Please spill the tea, Dave. What are the natives saying around Dunkin Donuts counter?

      • twifan2

        Monday & Dunkin Luv! 😀

    • disqus_jpuxh67QSR

      I read that too in NJ. com. The transcripts of her sentencing make clear that it is a real possibility.

  • Yolie

    I was hoping no more Dunkin Donuts twins. This is a disappointment.

    • twifan2

      Yep. Looks like ‘$$$ talks. Integrity walks’ with them too! :/

      • Yolie

        They’re all about the money. You would think after motherfuckergate, they wouldn’t come back. Guess they weren’t that “hurt” by the nasty rumor.

        • twifan2

          That’s what they kept saying during the season.
          ITA, $$$ helped cover over those nasty rumors. :/

        • Yolie, Preach!! They were sooooooo hurt yet their coming back for more. LMAO!!

        • BeachSpin

          Yes, they were so crushed that Teressssa was bringing up the subject every time she opened her mouth by the end of the season.

  • Fritz the. At

    I am in the camp that bravo has cut ties with teresa. Ratings were bad this season because most people didn’t want to watch her prancing around looking for symphathy. Joe tried to get a gig as a housewive and that fell flat. Teresa has complained that her products can’t be placed on stores because nobody wants to do business with her. NBC has stockholders and while there would be an interest, NBC is no different than Costco and other companies when it comes to dealing with felons. Teresa will write her book and a few people will buy it. She is pretty much finished when it comes to television. Glam will have her Internet cooking show, that will be it for her.

    • WestCoastFeed

      And Teresa has also said that she is “done with Bravo.”

      • twifan2

        Trying to make it like SHE made that decision huh?! Yeah right!
        The Juicys desperately need the Bravo paycheck!

    • RealitytvJunkie

      At the reunion when Andy asked if this was her last reunion that was very telling. IF she’s only going to be jailed for 12 months, why would he ask such a question. Her response was equally telling along with the tears. I agree with you, Bravo has cut ties with her. She’s done.

  • TartLemon

    Teresa’s not a personality who deserves to be put on a pedestal. She was molded into the “star” of the show. Someone else could be molded as well to take her place. If she showed any signs of intelligence or unique talent, Bravo should wait. But, she doesn’t.

    I don’t get why this common CONVICTED FELON is in the news every time she farts. WE are the ones making her noteworthy by commenting on this POS.

    • twifan2

      I guess because some of us-me, I’ll admit it-are waiting for the
      other Louboutin shoe to drop!
      More charges to be filed. 🙂

  • WestCoastFeed

    When will we get the response to Teresa’s malpractice lawsuit against her bankruptcy attorney? It has been over a month since she filed suit. Wasn’t he supposed to respond within 20 or 30 days?

    • I suspect now that the client/attorney confidently has been lifted, both parties may be negotiating a settlement in Kridel’s favor. I suppose, Teresa and her stupid lawyer opened up a can of worms by filing this suit.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Yes. that’s what I have been wondering, too. Has she been scrambling to fix the stupid situation that she got herself into by filing this in the first place?

        • twifan2

          Too late!

          • WestCoastFeed

            If that is where this is going, then it will probably be settled with a gag order and all we will ever really know for sure it that the case is closed.

          • twifan2

            Sadly that’s true.

          • Unfortunately yes, but like Twi said people are human and can’t help themselves from spilling a little tea.

          • twifan2

            I take mine with some lemon & honey, ty. 🙂

    • twifan2

      Maybe Mr. Kridel is being ‘investigated’ by the State/Feds over the Juicys’ bankruptcy fiasco?
      Tre was dumb to even try to sue Mr. Kridel!

  • TartLemon

    Throughout this comment section are posts about the ONGOING legal stuff for the Giudices. What’s going on? Can someone in the know put it together for me please? I’m intrigued.

    • twifan2

      Basically this, Tart:
      Dave • an hour ago
      She committed insurance fraud. She allegedly lied in her original bankruptcy filing when she claimed certain jewelry was stolen which she collected insurance money on. Word is the raid was real and more charges are coming.
      http://allaboutthetea.com/2014/12/17/feds-seize-cash-jewelry-in-surprise-raid-of-teresa-giudices-home/

      • TartLemon

        Oh okay. Wasn’t there a big deal about the watches Juicy wore to the sit down interview and reunion?

        • twifan2

          I don’t know about that, Tart.
          WCF or someone else could tell you more about it.

          Tre filing a lawsuit against her ex-bankruptcy lawyer, Mr. Kridel-may have opened her up for more charges also:

          ‘Seusseroo Loving Heart! WestCoastFeed • 29 minutes ago
          I suspect now that the client/attorney confidently has been lifted, both parties may be negotiating a settlement in Kridel’s favor. I suppose, Teresa and her stupid lawyer opened up a can of worms by filing this suit.’

  • cait

    Do you think the Tree is so stupid that she thought she could sue the lawyer but he wouldn’t be able to defend himself against her because of lawyer/client confidentiality ?

    • twifan2

      Exactly, cait! Thought she was going to get him to settle out of court. DUMB!

      • cait

        And, TF2, now she has sued him he can disclose “EVERYTHING” as he will be free to defend himself ! I wonder how much he knows about other criminal acts, or will he be confined to the case in hand ie B/ruptcy ?

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    This is what I thought all the time (thinking about the insurance fraud). I am just about positive that Teresa is going to end up doing more time. Perhaps for insurance fraud but maybe for perjury (or perhaps both).

    I will say this: if Bravo airs anything with that disgusting criminal on it, I will NEVER watch another of their shows, no matter how much I like it (which wouldn’t be much–as the only shows I watch as of now are HWoBH and Top Chef. I can’t stand the OC, NJ (haven’t watched that since the Gorgoyle’s joined), never did watch Miami and I no longer watch NY. I hate the Mill.Match (can’t stand Patty Skanker) and won’t watch GFGTD even though it has gotten good reviews.

    As long as Bravo rewards thieves and criminals, I don’t want much to do with them. But if they put that forehead challenged chimp on another show, I’m DONE for good. And I really hope others follow my suit. I’ll read about the recaps to support blogs I like but will NOT watch their shows. I put my money where my mouth is.

    • twifan2

      Bravo is ALL about the $$$, so they’ll milk their ‘cash, ratings’ cow for all she’s got/worth! :/

      • cait

        What is Bravo supposed to do ? They’re a BUSINESS ! It’s the mutts who go on these shows, shaming themselves and their families who make the dosh for Bravo !
        You should read about the crap going on, over here on Celeb (?) Big Bro ! Ferret(z) Hilton junked himself off, on screen !

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I really think that’s going to crash and burn for them. I don’t think they really get just how many people can’t stand Teresa. If you read any blog, it’s 95% negative–and that’s being generous to the potential 5%. She has followers that she paid for on Twitter and FB (believe me, I know you can do this–many entertainers, writers, artists, etc. do it). I just don’t buy that she has the fans to support a return to TV. At least I sure as hell hope not.

        • twifan2

          ‘that’s going to crash and burn for them’ <–That’s what I’m waiting for!
          *got my fixins for s’mores ready!* 🙂

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            hahahaha! I’ll join you! I love me some s’mores!

          • twifan2

            You can have my marshmallows. I’ll have some vanilla ice cream with mine instead. 🙂

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Oooooh, I love vanilla ice cream too! Vanilla bean gelato to be exact–although I had some caramel apple ice cream that was to die for when we were out to dinner this last weekend. YUM! Oh crap, now I’m getting hungry!

          • twifan2

            GF! I made my own caramel-rum sauce the other nite!
            *waved the caramel over the rum* 😉

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            OMG–that sounds divine! Rum sauce with a dash of caramel. Make mine a double!

    • Hi Heels! Missed your insightful comments!!♥︎

      TreApe is in debt to the tune of $13.4 million big ones, a convicted felon and now a federal inmate, WHY on earth does Bravo want to bring back this scumbag is BEYOND my comprehension. SMFH!

      • WestCoastFeed

        I doubt that they really will. How would they fit any story line about Teresa in with the cast they now have? How many scenes of cast members talking about her and how she is faring in prison before that becomes very boring?

        • Teresa’s storyline was boring last season, I agree with you, I don’t see how her release will have any impact.

        • twifan2

          This could Sheila’s way on the show? Maybe?

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Hi Suesseroo! I’m kind of busy these days–was REALLY busy last week but this week is lighter. I always take a lot of time off during the Holidays but I’ll be checking in more often this week.

        I so agree with you–and the thing is–I really do believe the MAJORITY of viewers feel the same. I really hope no one tunes in to watch this convicted felon continued to be rewarded for her criminal behavior. SMFH too!

    • I1ST5XS

      In agreement. And write their sponsors that you won’t watch if the theif is brought back on TV.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Good idea.

        • I1ST5XS

          Thanks!

    • Wendy Owen

      Not to worry about GFGTD – it’s like listening to crap by carole radziwell for too long.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Oh my! LOL!

        • Wendy Owen

          not a lie! the “star” is even a boney-assed, wrinkley woman a la skelator whom we’re supposed to believe is made of cake and every man wants to eat it. it’s like the screenwriter’s took some shitty work and added carolisms to it.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I did see the previews–I’ve seen that actress before but I can’t remember when I don’t remember her name. The show didn’t look interesting to me at all, compared to the great new shows on Netflix and such. I wish Bravo the worst anyway–Andy Cohen is a misogynistic asshole who likes portraying women in the worst possible light. I don’t want to support that network (except I can’t stay away from BH–still love that particular franchise, mostly because of Lisa V and now Eileen D.).

          • twifan2

            She was on House, M.D.-Dr. Lisa Cuddy-
            Lisa Edelstein 🙂
            I liked the show-House, that is.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Oh thank you! Of course. I loved that show too–although I didn’t see that many episodes.

          • twifan2

            I loved it for the new medical equipment they had almost every week. Plus, I liked House. He was brutally sane. I guess you could call his medical expertise ‘sane’?! 😉

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            His was one of the best written and best acted characters I’ve ever seen. That seemed like a great show.

          • twifan2

            I would have loved to have seen him on E.R.! 🙂
            I liked that show too. Wish I could find all the episodes online. 🙁

          • Wendy Owen

            She may be a decent actress but the show is so bad, I can’t tell. I watch mostly Netflix, too. BTW, watch Broadchurch — it was so much better than the Fox version.

  • WestCoastFeed

    ROL has a story claiming that Sheila is vying for a spot on the show. They could have asked her. She denied that rumor when Rob Shuter posted it.

    • twifan2

      Sheila?! No way! She’s more boring than the twins!
      UNLESS VG has ‘info’ on her too?! 😮

      • WestCoastFeed

        She hasn’t been indicted yet, either.

        • twifan2

          Interesting. :/
          Very interesting!

        • twifan2

          So now Sheila ‘hates’ Tre? o.0

          • WestCoastFeed

            The Sheila hates Tre story has been around a long time. It seems to have been an off and on relationship.

          • twifan2

            Like when it serves a person’s purpose most likely. smh

    • She wanted on the show a few seasons back and Bravo went with Melissa instead.

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    Ha-ha! Sheila a housewife? Bwha-ha-ha-ha-ha! That’s hilarious. Not with the skeletons they have in their closet! LMFAO!

    (Oh & btw, ROL is sooo lame they didn’t even put the correct pic in their article! The pic they are showing? It’s not Sheila Giudice!)

    • twifan2

      I saw that!
      I was like WTH? Isn’t that Tre’s assistant-the one that ‘handled’ the CASH ONLY, No Receipts events?!

      • WestCoastFeed

        Yes, it’s Priscilla di Stasio, once Tre’s makeup artist.

        • twifan2

          She did look familiar to me.
          That site is getting REALLY sloppy! :/

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Getting sloppy? That’s the sloppiest, nastiest, cootie-filled rag I ever saw!

          • twifan2

            I was being ‘nice’. 😉
            *really wanted to say they are ‘skanky’*

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            That too!

          • Wendy Owen

            ROTFLMFAO! cootie filled rag! Love it!!!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            😉

        • twifan2

          Maybe it’s Priscilla vying for a pot on RHNJ, not Sheila?

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        I don’t know how they stay in business. If I had my ad on their site, I’d want it pulled immediately. No way would I want to be associated with that rag!

        • twifan2

          :/
          Just smh. :/

        • twifan2

          Tre can sue ROL for getting her stories wrong! 😀

  • BuckJohnson

    Sheila Giudice has just as much if not more skeletons than Teresa. And if her husband is smart he would say no especially after what the show did to his brother and outed all their business.

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      To be honest Buck, if you stop & think about it, Tre has nobody but herself to blame. When she pulled out $120,000 in CASH the first season to pay for all that gaudy-azz furniture I knew right then & there these two were shadier than the National Forest!

      • corky21

        That was staged. Production gave her the cash

        • WestCoastFeed

          That was her excuse. And that is what she said about that Valentino purse, too.

        • twifan2

          She could have said sh wouldn’t do it.

        • Shy-ra

          Bull!! No way in hell did production come up with that – they were just salivating when they realized that was what was going to happen!!! How come none of the other Housewives in any of the other franchises aren’t out paying cash on their shopping sprees??? Why would that even be a thought in production’s mind? Instead they just “let” her do it because they knew it was shady as hell and knew that it would rile people up. Obviously production was clued in to the fact that they were criminals from the get go – and they were hoping to catch it on camera for ratings. NO ONE IS THAT STUPID, ONLY TREE APE & CO.

  • WestCoastFeed

    US Weekly is saying that Juicy and the girls visited Tre over the weekend.

    • twifan2

      :/

    • Those poor girls. I can’t imagine what they felt. My heart truly weeps for them. Teresa is a POS mother to permit those kids to come visit her in that place…in that state

  • doggiedaddy

    This woman should just fade into obscurity, but Bravo has elevated her to status of Saint.
    Felon, con artist, crook, thief, misanthrope and loving mother…
    Just what TV needs – more crap.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      I really do wish the news stories about her daily life in prison would stop. Unless there is REAL news like new charges, etc. then the media is keeping her in the spotlight and helping to reward her loathsome behavior. I know it’s all about readership and ratings but I would really prefer to see her slide into obscurity unless there are new charges that will lead to more jail time.

      • I agree and some of the stories are downright ridic. Like the “Gay for stay” nonsense. I almost fell off my chair when I saw that on Facebook.

        • twifan2

          All I could think of was that Big Bertha has done her ‘job’! 😀
          Wonder what/how much that ‘source’ got paid for that!? :’D

          • I bet you it’s a Corrections Officer spilling the beans to the tabs for money, outside of her lawyer. He’s still supposedly behaving unscrupulous and babbling too.

          • twifan2

            Makes sense to me about a Correctional Officer. They would have close contact with her. Know her routine & have easy access to the internet after working hours.

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Yes! And I am so grateful that you guys aren’t doing what ROL has been doing. I’m not commenting on any more of their stories–or at least I am putting GREAT effort into not even clicking them. She just needs to die right down. She doesn’t deserve to be a celebrity anyway. She’s got less talent that fat-ass Kartrashian, she’s downright ugly and scary looking, plus she’s a convicted felon. And this deserves fame and fortune because…..? I’m just so sick of this nasty HO and I hope she’s miserable 100% of her time and I hope she does more. She got off WAY too light.

          • Thank you! For the life of me, I do not understand how she has fans who spew HATE in her honor. I have some Trehugger friends that are NOT fanatical and very respectful. BUT her crazy fans need psych evals.

          • TGIP>>STHU NenePhaedraBrandi

            Maybe they could all go in together and get a Bozo No No Discount deal. As if that group of McPsycho P-A folks could actually talk intelligibly to a professional therapist…. Uh, probably not.

            That cozy little group of Teresa Giudice fermenting fools haven’t yet fallen from the apple Tre.

          • twifan2

            ITA that she got off too lightly. BUT remember Judge Salas said she was considering just giving her ‘probation’!
            Tre really screwed up in front of Judge Salas for her to change her mind!
            2 things struck me from this scene last season:
            http://media.giphy.com/media/5Iv8j1R1aATsY/giphy.gif
            1) That is not the face of an innocent person. She was too shrewd-ish!
            2) IF Tre is such a ‘religious'(Catholic) person, where were her ashes. It was Ashe Wednesday that day.

          • TGIP>>STHU NenePhaedraBrandi

            Now wait a second…doesn’t that “evil eye” pendant take care of the ashes on her forehead stuff?!?
            Whaaaaaaaa…………..!

          • justanothermary

            There’s no room on her forehead for ashes.

          • Harleygirl0685

            Maybe it’s just me but I don’t think you were clear enough on your feelings about Teresa…could you elaborate a bit more?…

        • Harleygirl0685

          I’m afraid to ask what that even means and even more afraid what’s gonna come up when I Google it

    • Harleygirl0685

      That’s a nice little resume you just wrote up for her…that should surely land her a great job on some boob tube!!!
