"The network is looking to shake up the series next season and get rid of Giudice. Although she creates all the drama, the other Housewives hate her and her storyline is getting stale -- she holds on to the same grudges!" a source told Us Weekly in its latest October 1 issue.
Producers are "looking for a new, mean Jersey girl to replace her," according to the source.
Giudice, who also appeared on The Celebrity Apprentice's fifth season, severely clashed with Melissa Gorga during The Real Housewives of New Jersey's fourth season, which broadcast its fourth-season finale last night.
Gorga told Us she has no desire to reconcile with her sister-in-law unless Giudice admits she is behind claims Gorga was allegedly once a stripper, which Gorga insists is false.
Giudice's fellow Housewives and former friends Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita also reportedly completely cut ties with her following many arguments and falling outs.
