Last night's Christmas episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey featured Joe and Teresa Giudice going about their holiday business while staring down the possibility prison time for fraud charges.
To say the Giudices have a lot on their plate these days would be a colossal understatement, but believe it or not, their problems may have just gotten worse.
Reports emerged today that Bravo executives are seriously considering the idea of firing Teresa from the show that made her famous.
With prison looming and four young children to support, now would be the worst possible time for the Giudice family to lose Teresa's $700,000 salary.
However, the show's declining ratings, coupled with Housewife's diva-like behavior have reportedly led producers to consider dropping her from the cast.
Sources say Teresa's recent feud with Andy Cohen over comments the Bravo president made on Watch What Happens Live may have been the final straw.
"Bravo bosses are starting to think Teresa isn't worth keeping around if her behavior continues," an insider tells Radar Online.
"The network is very sensitive to the fact that she's facing a looming prison sentence and has tried to work with her during this difficult time."
"But Teresa has cut back substantially on media appearances to promote the show and has been acting like a diva."
Of course, if Teresa ends up being sent to prison in September, then she likely won't be capable of filming season seven of the formerly popular reality series.
Still, getting canned would serve as the latest in a long line of humiliations for the Giudices. Think it will happen? Should it? Share your comments below ...
