"Filming for the next season is going to start at the end of February or right at the beginning of March," a show insider snitched to RadarOnline.com.
"Producers want to make sure that they have everything about Joe Giudice’s deportation situation on camera for maximum drama," the source admitted.
RadarOnline.com broke the news that Teresa’s imprisoned husband Joe had been ordered deported from the United State by a Department of Justice Immigration judge. He appealed the ruling and a decision is expected as early as March regarding his fate.
"If Joe gets kicked out, if he stays, if she files for divorce, they want to make sure they don’t miss anything so they’re not delaying production at all."
And luckily for the rest of the cast, producers want to bring back the rest of the RHONJ stars as well, including Teresa’s family Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania and Margaret Josephs, as well as the new ladies Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldschneider.
"All of the ladies are going to be offered contracts to come back and they’re not planning to add any new women into the mix for the first time in a while," the source told RadarOnline.com.
But Teresa and Joe’s deportation nightmare and their marriage status is going to be the focus of filming.
"The show producers want some insurance that they’ll be able to get the drama in real time. Deportation or not, this would be ratings gold for them so they’re locking everything down and are immediately filming before too many things happen," the insider revealed.
