Bravo publicly maintains that no decisions have been made yet about the future of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” while Teresa Giudice remains locked up in jail, one show insider tells GT that several cast members have been told they will begin filming season 7 this fall.
“They plan to start filming in November, which means they will be putting together story lines after the summer,” says our source. “Not everyone is coming back, and it is still be big question mark as to what they will do with the problem known as Teresa.”
Giudice, who has already inked a deal for the upcoming season, will be released from prison in December, and home in time for Christmas, so if she does return, she will miss a few weeks of filming, we’re told. Our insider adds that we should expect to see the return of Kathy Wakile to the cast along with Jacqueline Laurita, who will be returning despite Giudice’s attempts to keep her off the show. Giudice won’t travel far for her part on the show–she’ll finish the remainder of her sentence with home confinement until February.
