Since "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" reunion show has already been taped, the produces are deciding who will stay on the show, who will be told to go, and which ladies, if any, will be added on.
"They are looking all the time for new cast members for all the franchises," one insider told The Huffington Post. "But, nothing gets serious until after the reunion show has been taped and the season comes to an end. Now they are deciding what to do with next season, with the biggest problem being Teresa Giudice."

The "New Jersey" cast, including Giudice's brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, had not been in contact with Teresa since they finished filming more than one year ago. That is, until, they spent nearly 13 hours in the same room of the Borgata Hotel and Casino.
"No one wants to tape with Teresa anymore," two cast members told The Huffington Post. "She has done so many things to each member of the cast that at this point it is everyone versus Teresa. I know they are looking at several friends of hers to join the show so she has someone to film with. At the moment, no one has been invited back, but we are all pretty sure Teresa will have two new friends."
Rest assured, the "New Jersey" reunion special will be very emotional and very dramatic.
A show insider told AllAboutTRH, that the reason Joe had not spoken to his sister for more than a year was because Giudice told their father Melissa had been a stripper.
The source claims Teresa denied telling their father that and said she just heard it was a rumor, but Joe's mind was already set -- he didn't believe her.
"Things got real ugly between them but Teresa got extremely emotional talking to her brother who she had not seen in a year."
On 'Watch What Happens Live!' Teresa shared Joe's "lies" with host Andy Cohen. Teresa said she called her father and he denied ever telling her brother Joe that. However, Cohen stopped her from revealing anymore about the reunion.
Things also got nasty between Teresa and the other cast mates. Her cousin, Kathy Wakile, even targeted Teresa's mother.
"Kathy calls Teresa's mother a liar which makes Teresa freak out. I think that got Teresa upset the most and Caroline is seen even comforting her," the source claimed.
The big falling out (which is set to air on Sept. 23 as the season finale), was so bad that Jacqueline Laurita refused to appear on last season's reunion show.
However, Laurita made up for lost times: she reportedly had to be held back either by Caroline Manzo or her husband Chris this time around, Bravo.com reported, though they later removed that statement from their blog post.
During the taping of the reunion, Laurita told her Twitter followers she needed to pop a Xanax in between takes.
