Everyone wants the new season of Real Housewives of New Jersey NOW!
Bravo should know their Bravoholics don't like to be kept waiting, yet it seems Teresa Giudice is powerful enough to stall one of their hit shows.
With the sentencing for her fraud case pending, Bravo is putting a hold on the debut of the new season until Tre is free to do press.
You see, Perezcious readers, one doesn't promote a reality show while facing a jail sentence as a source revealed:
"Bravo doesn’t have an air date for the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey because of Teresa Giudice’s prison sentencing hearing. Obviously, Teresa is going to be a key character in the upcoming season, and Bravo wants to maximize her storyline. Having Teresa available to do press interviews, and promotions is essential.
Teresa’s legal team absolutely won’t let her do any interviews before the sentencing hearing because it could impact her sentence. If Teresa was out doing press interviews promoting RHONJ before the July 8 sentencing, it would look like she wasn’t taking the process seriously…..which she definitely is. After the sentence is handed down, it’s expected Bravo will officially give season six a premiere date."
Well, we guess we can understand this considering she IS facing 27 months in prison.
But we sure hope Bravo brings it big with the new season if they're going to keep all the fans waiting like this!
And we mean bigger than strippergate AND Tre's table flip combined!
