The Real Housewives of New Jersey continues to film, working to crank out some footage that won’t put viewers to sleep.
Originally, the reinstated Teresa Giudice, was to be crowned a
fake New York Times bestselling author during the slated finale episode. The need for additional footage, has made it necessary for Bravo to change it’s strategy.
An insider is dishing the dirt, about a splintered cast, and emerging problems, as Bravo struggles to pull a franchise back together. The source spills that producers are hoping that a March 30th fashion show, hosted by Melissa Gorga, will serve as a perfect spot for the cast to gather, to shoot the finale.
Jacqueline Laurita remains vehemently against supporting Melissa, which could pose a problem for producers. The insider spills.
“Jacqueline will not show support for Melissa. She believes that Melissa is self-obsessed, and is annoyed that she didn’t reach out and support her husband, Chris, when he launched his popcorn line. She will refuse to attend.”
The source dishes that producers were hoping that last Friday’s housewarming party for Dolores Catania would work for the finale episode, but Teresa Giudice was a no-show. The insider explains.
“Teresa said that Milania was upset that she missed her father’s call from prison, and that she wanted to be home with her.”
The party turned out to be an icy affair, with obvious tension existing between Jacqueline and Melissa. The insider also shares that there is a filmed event going down tonight, at the Old Bridge Township gym, owned by Catania. The ladies are expecting to gather at Powerhouse Gym for a ladies night. According to the Instagram announcement, we may see the yoga-zen side of Teresa, in snoozy living color.
Laurita is not expected to attend, due to an illness. The source says,
“Jacqueline is feeling ill today. She will not be attending the gym event, but she actually wanted to go.”
Will the feud between two core cast mates make a finale gathering impossible?
