According the above report by Entertainment Tonight, Bravo cameras were following Melissa Gorga as she sets about to open a boutique. The story says they are not sure if she if filming for the upcoming three part special with Joe and the girls, but I’m pretty sure that is already in the can. Also, Melissa opening a boutique is not a storyline for the Teresa is in Prison special. It is a storyline for RHONJ though. It’s one of the last businesses left that Melissa has not already tried.
This actually makes sense. Last season, filming started during the holidays. The season premiere in July and had a million episodes ending in November. If they start filming now, they can all sit around and gossip about Teresa being in prison, stop by and see Joe and the girls and then film the whole house arrest thing with Teresa around Christmastime.
Melissa will be the queen bee of the show with Teresa’s girls. That will yank Teresa’s chain and she will come in hot. I wonder if Andy will ever be able to get Caroline back. When she was on WWHL recently, it seemed like Andy was admitting that Caroline had already turned down a million dollar offer. I swear if they bring back the cancer woman and her dweeby shithead of a husband I won’t be able to take it. The twins seem to be all but forgotten. Who else is there? Well, Jac is coming back but other than Jac and Melissa and Kathy they really need Caroline back. Maybe now that Dina is safely ensconced in L.A. Caroline will return. I’d like to have an old school cast for Teresa’s prison release. Random newbies wouldn’t work so well.
If they wrap in February, the new season could start in late spring. That would be great. Sundays sucked this past summer. I guess we will wait and see.
