Many Bravolebrities attended the Upfronts in New York City last Thursday, and Dina Manzo and Melissa Gorga looked beautiful as they represented The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Noticeably missing was Teresa Giudice, and according to a new report Bravo execs were not happy about Giudice’s absence.
“The network obviously wanted her there and wanted her to talk about her legal problems because they are in the show, but she just isn’t willing to do any press right now,” an insider tells RadarOnline. “Bravo is totally stuck with Teresa.”
Teresa and her husband Joe will be sentenced on July 8th, and according to the insider, she will not be doing any press.
“Teresa is terrified of making a wrong move between now and her sentencing,” the insider explained. “She’s praying that she gets only house arrest or even probation. So she’s staying out of the limelight and avoiding any situation where she will have to talk about the case.”
“But this is putting Bravo in a really awkward situation,” the source continued. “Teresa is a huge draw for the show, but of course they can’t force her to do anything that would put her in legal jeopardy.”
“Bravo is going to push as much as they can with Teresa,” the source said. “She will eventually have to do press for the show, and hopefully won’t be in jail when the reunion show films!”
