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.
