With the fate of Teresa Giudice’s freedom up in the air, RadarOnline is reporting that the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey are getting nervous about production for the next season of the show. We EXCLUSIVELY broke the news that production on season 6 of RHONJ will begin early to capture the Giudice trial, but Radar reports none of the cast has signed any new contracts. “They’re all starting to freak out,” a production insider tells the site.
“The women won’t get their contracts until after the reunion show for this season is filmed and that is happening the first week in September. They have to do everything that is required of them for THIS season and then Bravo will lock them down for the next season. But the stalemate is making everyone really nervous,” the insider continues. “With Teresa’s crazy indictment and October trial coming up the ladies know that Bravo wants them all back, but they don’t know if they’re going to be able to get any more money,” the source said, noting how Bravo handled the cast of RHONY when they demanded raises.
“They would basically be filming two seasons back-to-back without a break and that is a lot more pressure for all of them,” the source says. “All the ladies know that Teresa’s court drama could be amazing for ratings and they all want to be a part of that and they’re hoping Bravo will quickly get them all new deals so they can start filming again right away. They know that Teresa is the star and they’ll have to have her back so they’re hoping that they all will be back too.”
Our sources say there WILL be a season 6 of RHONJ and that Bravo will do everything in their power to document the trial.
