We all know Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice is in the middle of her 14 month prison term but are Bravo executives upset that the incarcerated reality star took the cover of US Weekly magazine with her first prison photo on the same week Real Housewives of New York season premiere. The only thing I can say about Bravo being upset is “Calm down! Take a Xanax!”
Bravo is putting all their eggs in Bethenny Frankel’s basket and hoping her return to Real Housewives of New York will rejuvenate a series that has been rather lackluster the last couple seasons.
New York Daily News stated their sources bumped The Real Housewives of New York return on US Weekly cover for Teresa Giudice’s first prison photo and Bravo is not happy about it. Bravo executives have been working with US Weekly for the last few weeks to secure a cover deal with the New York ladies and even set up a cast photo for the cover. Obviously prison photos trump the Skinny Girl’s return.
It is rumoured the Giudice’s received $75,000 from US Weekly for the photo. Another source says that Teresa wants to prove to Bravo even behind bars she is still relevant.
Bravo is currently casting for the next season and Real Housewives of New Jersey and even though Teresa made it clear she was done with the show I’m sure for the right price she’ll be back.
The Real Housewives of New York airs on Bravo on Tuesdays.
