It was recently announced that after a year of being away from the TV screen the Real Housewives of New Jersey will be filming their seventh season. There has been a lot of talk of who is returning, what is being filmed, when and so on- and now Radar Online has revealed some inside scoop on what is to come for the new season.
As it was confirmed by an exclusive source from us a while ago, the site reports that Teresa Giudice will return despite her serving her prison sentence, the star will be out right before Christmas. A source claimed,Â “They are getting her to come back.”
But not so fast! The site’sÂ source claims that there are still some contract issues going on over Giudice’s salary.
“Teresa got paid $750,000 last season and she is only getting between $750-850,000 for the new season,” the source says. “She wanted a million but they won’t give it to her.”
Although she will make a return, the source is claiming that Teresa is refusing to film with her cousin Kathy, as the two have been known to have their differences on the show.
Teresa absolutely refuses to film with Kathy,” the source says. “She hates Kathy. After Kathy called her father a coward and her mother a liar, she never forgave her for that.”
From recent seasons, Teresa has been fighting with everyone on the show and the insider is sharing that Bravo wants to cast new ladies who will have Teresa’s back.
“They are trying to cast someone still to be Teresa’s friend on the show,” the source says. “She has no allies so she needs someone to lean on.”
Former BFFs Teresa and Jacqueline Laurita had been fighting for the past few seasons, but the source revealed, “Teresa had her lawyer bury the hatchet with Jacqueline.”
“Jacqueline agreed to make up for this new season and play nice,” the source says. According to the source, Laurita is still waiting on her own offer from Bravo and “feels this will help her get the contract.”
The source shared that Melissa Gorga has already filmed for the new season though the whole cast won’t start until late November.
