“Real Housewives of New Jersey” stars, Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Caroline Manzo, Kathy Wakile, and Jacqueline Laurita haven’t signed their new contracts for season six.
The “RHONJ” girls are reportedly in major contract disputes with the Bravo Networkand not one of them has signed on for season six, despite rumors that they’ve been filming early to catch up on all of Teresa Giudice’s legal troubles.
“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,” said one insider.
The “Real Housewives” reportedly want more money, but don’t know if they’re going to get it. “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. 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 added.
However, the “RHONJ” know that Teresa Giudice’s legal problems can work in their favore, and really boost ratings for the fan favorite show.
“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,” the insider revealed.
