In case you missed it, Victoria Gotti made a bombshell revelation on the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Gotti revealed to Teresa Giudice that the mother of Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano once slept with Teresa's husband. (While their father was in prison, no less!)

The twins apparently had no idea that this scandalous information would be revealed on air, and they're said to be furious with Bravo execs.

In fact, they were so pissed when they first learned of the scene that they both immediately quit the show and refused to even finish filming for season six.

Whether or not there are Bravo cameras at Teresa Giudice's sentencing next month, it's sure to be a dramatic day for the outspoken Real Housewives of New Jersey star. 

Along with her husband Joe Giudice, Teresa was convicted of fraud back in March and could face serious jail if the judge decides to make an example of her.

The Giudice's sentencing was delayed following the death of Joe's father, but with the new date of September 23 fast approaching, friends say Teresa isn't the least bit concerned.

"Teresa has been telling friends she doesn't think there is any way the judge will send her to jail because she's the mother of four girls," a source tells Radar Online.

It's been over two years since Victoria Gotti got fired from on Celebrity Apprentice, and now it seems the daughter of the Teflon Don may finally be ready to return to the world of reality TV.

With Teresa Giudice possibly headed to prison and the show tanking in the ratings, The Real Housewives of New Jersey producers have reportedly offered Gotti a lucrative deal to join the cast full-time next season.

Victoria dropped a bombshell revelation on last night's RHONJ, adding some much-needed drama to an otherwise lackluster season.

Bravo execs reportedly fell instantly in love after seeing Gotti's interactions with the rest of the cast and they now believe she'd be a perfect fit for the Housewife franchise's most sleaziest iteration.

Combustible reality star Teresa Giudice might be getting the chop from The Real Housewives of New Jersey sooner rather than later, a new report indicates.

Teresa Giudice: Table Flipping
And now for the classic. Teresa's face is priceless as she famously flips the table. Bravo. Bravo.

Whispers of Bravo firing Giudice have been circulating for some time, having intensified since her serious legal problems became a national story.

Basically, the woman is a convict and a felon and who is very likely to serve jail time for fraud; Guidice reportedly begged Bravo not to air her sentencing.

This might be a case of "be careful what you wish for," as you may not see her if you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey beyond this season.

All reality shows thrive on drama, but it appears this one may be attempting to preserve a modicum of remaining respect by firing Teresa as soon as possible.

Rumors have indicated that Bravo executives would fire her before she ended up in jail, and that she made it easy on them by feuding with the network.

Sunday on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 7, special guest Victoria Gotti full-on dropped a BOMB on the Bravo show's cast.

What did she have to say? And about whom? You can watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online to see, or follow along for our recap below ...

First, we begin with Amber Marchese going to visit Melissa Gorga, who is grieving for her aunt, who passed away after a prolonged battle with cancer.

Then, we see Nicole Napolitano chat with her mom about Bobby. Her mom and Teresa Aprea are both worried that this lifelong bachelor will not commit.

At Teresa Guidice's home, she and Melissa are having a date night, with Teresa throwing shade every chance she gets (to the cameras, not Melissa's face).

One can understand why she's not in the best mood, even if it's Valentine's Day. Teresa and Joe Giudice have a mountain range of legal bills to pay.

After she and her husband were guilty were found guilty on several counts of fraud, it began to look as though Teresa Giudice would be headed to prison.

Their original sentencing date was delayed following the death of Joe Giudice's father, but now the new day of reckoning is fast approaching, and Teresa is reportedly begging Bravo not to send a Real Housewives of New Jersey camera crew to document what may turn out to be the worst day of her life.

Teresa and Joe Giudice Head to Court

"Teresa doesn't want cameras from Bravo to be at her sentencing on September 23," says a source close to the network. "[She] has told producers of the show her thoughts. Bravo doesn't care what Teresa wants or thinks and they are done protecting her."

Teresa has complained about being "exploited" by Bravo in the past, and her diva-like behavior on set coupled with her habit of bad-mouthing the network has gained her little sympathy from execs.

Even so, if Bravo does send cameras Teresa's sentencing hearing, they'll likely be doing so not as an act of revenge, but out of a desire to protect their investment.

If you watched the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, you may have been moved by a touching scene in which Teresa gave her eldest daughter Gia a diamond ring that had been in their family for generations.

It was a rare moment of tenderness from a woman who's best known for her raging temper and constant legal problems.

Teresa and Gia Giudice

The only problem is - the whole thing was faked.

"The diamond ring had been given to Teresa about a year ago by a jeweler in New Jersey," a source close to the show tells Radar Online. "Teresa wanted to give Gia the ring on camera to give publicity to the jeweler."

And we're gonna go ahead and assume that Teresa received something in exchange for that "publicity." Disguising shameless product placement as a heartfelt moment with your daughter - classy move, Teresa!

It was Amber Marchese vs. Nicole Napolitano again Sunday on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as the new cast members do their best to make a name for themselves.

Not in the way you might expect from a Bravo show, though.

With news that Jacqueline Laurita is returning to stir up drama and ratings, they upped their game on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 6.

Or did they? What played out last night, and might these events be exactly the reason producers are having Laurita return for the back half of the season?

Amber Marchese and Nicole Napolitano sat down to discuss their infamous hair-pulling fight, and at first it looked like we might see a bit of a rematch.

The body language and words were tense, and a few insults lobbed each other's way felt like the opening salvos of a war that we'd better buckle in for.

But then the unthinkable happened.

Jacqueline Laurita is coming back to join The Real Housewives of New Jersey to stir the pot this season, and some people are not happy about it.

One person in particular.

Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo

In particular, Dina Manzo is so pissed about Laurita returning to the show that she said she wouldn’t have decided to join the cast again if she had known.

“Dina is furious that Jacqueline is back. She never would have come back if she knew Jacqueline was still on the show,” a source close to the situation said.

“She is mad that she’s been put in this position.”

Manzo came back for Season 6 of the struggling show despite saying, “I will never do a reality show with family ever again. It’s just not a healthy environment.”

Laurita is her sister-in-law. It's complicated.

Former reality star Jacqueline Laurita is returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey for a few episodes later this season, as reported last week.

Bravo hopes this will provide a return to past ratings gold.

  • Dina Manzo on RHONJ

"Jacqueline wasn't happy to not be returning to the show [as a cast member] this year. She was sad about it," an insider said of the longtime star.

The ratings for the sixth season so far have been struggling badly, and fan-favorite Laurita's return might provide a necessary spark to boost viewership.

"Now that Jacqueline is coming back for a few episodes, it's Bravo's way of trying to stir up drama. And it probably will," the source close to the show said.

Laurita, 44, had been on the show five seasons but was let go after sister-in-law Dino Manzo said to fire Jacqueline and Carolina Manzo, otherwise she'd walk.

The network obliged, but may be having second thoughts now.
