Teresa Giudice Replaced By Rosie, Kathy on Watch What Happens Live — Why?
If you watch what happens live tonight (Sunday, July 20), you won't watch Teresa Giudice. She was scheduled to appear on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, after the second episode of The Real Housewives of New JerseySeason 6, but she's been replaced by sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri.
On July 9, Kathy tweeted, "See you all in the #WWHL Clubhouse with my sis @RosiePierri @Andy @Bravotv Sunday night after this weeks #RHONJ."
“Teresa was notified by Bravo on Friday that her appearance on Sunday’s show was being canceled,” a Bravo insider told RadarOnline. “No official reason was given, but the network has been upset with Teresa for not doing as many promotional appearances for The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” But this would’ve been a promotional appearance for the show, so…
Whatever the reason, it’s an awkward move that follows WWHL host Andy Cohen mocking Teresa's legal woes on the show earlier this week. On Tuesday night, while talking to guests Kelly Ripa and Anderson Cooper, Andy said Joe and Teresa Giudice “didn’t get out of jail by being on the Housewives of New Jersey … They are going to have to do whatever time they do.” The comments reportedly "pushed Teresa over the edge," an insider told Radar. "She felt so betrayed by Andy.”
Teresa and Joe's sentencing was pushed back from July to September, and the source said Teresa would prefer that Andy not make any comments about it because she doesn't want anything to impact what the punishments could be. "It’s one thing for the legal proceedings to play out on the show, but Andy isn’t a lawyer, and shouldn’t discuss things he knows nothing about.”
However, Teresa was still planning to appear on Andy's show tonight, the source added. "No one can ever say that Teresa isn’t professional. She hopes not to discuss the sentencing, and instead focus on the show, and other projects and charities she is supporting."
That source was obviously Team Teresa, but it turns out Tre won't be talking about anything since her appearance was nixed.
Are you disappointed to not get to hear Teresa's side of ... whatever ... on tonight's show, or are you glad Rosie and Kathy will be on the show instead?
