As RadarOnline.com previously reported, on top of the legal drama, Melissa and her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice have been battling it out on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Sources said producers are unsure how to move forward with another season as Teresa refuses to film with Melissa after a drama-filled year.

As a result, the network has yet to offer contracts to the cast for the next season.
