"Bravo is NOT filming at the moment but producer have reached out to her and asked that she document what’s going on in her life," a production insider spills.
With talk de Lesseps, 52, could be headed to jail, and with the Bravo having no plans to postpone filming, the network has asked the reality star to start shooting video effective immediately!
"They need as much home footage as possible to edit Luann and her troubles into the show"
Meanwhile, Bravo plans to cash in on de Lesseps' downward spiral. "If anything this incident has secured her job," says the source. "The producers love nothing better than real life drama and with the exception of wedding and divorces" — both of which Luann did last season!
"Nothing is better on reality TV than a court hearing that could result in jail," the informant dished to Radar. "They are giddy with excitement about what will happen to Luann."
