Teresa and Joe Giudice were indicted on 39 counts of fraud the other day, which could result, if they’re found guilty, in a 30-year prison sentence for each. While they’re contemplating this fate, the two are also in a position in which they’re to consider a jail-free future in which they’re no longer reality stars.
The New York Daily News cites a very reliable source at Bravo as saying that network bosses, and show creator Andy Cohen in particular, are thinking of axing the hit series The Real Housewives of New Jersey because of all this legal drama.
Clearly, a proposed Giudice spinoff is also out of the question.
“Nobody wants to see their talent in this kind of a situation,” says a network insider.
As for the spinoff, adds the spy, “They are not interested. Bravo only spins off happy situations — marriages, baby news. Not prison.”
As we also reported a couple of days ago, Joe could be deported to Italy if he’s found guilty, after he completes his sentence on American soil.
An attorney for Teresa has already told the press she plans on pleading not guilty in the case.
