Teresa Giudice Starring in a 'Real Housewives' Spin-Off? [VIDEO]
She and Her Family Are Reportedly in Talks to Leave RHoNJ and Star in Their Own Reality Series
Let's face facts: if TLC can turn the pint-sized curiosity that is Honey Boo Boo into a reality series star and get millions of people to watch, there's really no ruling out anyone as a reality TV star.
Even, perhaps, one of the most hated reality stars in Bravo's stable, Real Housewives of New Jersey villain Teresa Giudice.

Giudice and her equally annoying husband, Joe, are in talks with Bravo execs about spinning off into their own series, RadarOnline reports.
With all her co-stars squaring off against her in the just-concluded fourth season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, it's tough to imagine them getting together to film a fifth season of the show, so a spin-off might be the only way for Bravo to continue showcasing the Giudice family's antics.
And it would be a family affair, as RadarOnline reports that the spin-off would feature Teresa and Joe and their brood, as well as other Giudices, like Joe's brother Pete, who popped up several times in season four.
The one potential glitch in the spin-off plot: Joe Giudice's legal woes. He faces up to 10 years in prison for charges that he used his brother's ID to try to obtain a new driver's license after his own license was suspended for a DUI charge.
But RadarOnline's source says Bravo is determined to find a way to keep the RHoNJ stars on the air, even though viewers are tiring of their drama.
"People are starting to bore with the same old cat fights every episode so they need to change it up," the source said. "And those Giudices will do anything to earn a dollar!"
As for the rest of the cast, they get together with Teresa Giudice -- for the first time since season four was filmed a year ago -- in the three-part reunion special that debuts on Sunday.
And, as the previews below suggest, the reunion finds the women, and men, of the RHoNJ getting even nastier with each other than they have in the past:
