Looks like the show will go on without incarcerated Teresa Giudice. 

Bravo publicly maintains that no decisions have been made yet about the future of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” while Teresa Giudice remains in the slammer. One show insider, however, tells Confidenti@l that several cast members have been told they will likely begin filming season seven this fall without Giudice, who’s expected to remain behind bars until nearly the end of the year.

“They plan to start filming in November, which means they will be putting together story lines after the summer,” says our source. “Not everyone is coming back, and it is still a big question mark as to what they will do with the problem known as Teresa.”

Giudice, who has already inked a deal for the upcoming season, will be released from prison in December and home by Christmas. We’re told if she does return to the show, she will only miss a few weeks of filming. Our insider adds that we should expect to see the return of Kathy Wakile to the cast along with Jacqueline Laurita, who will be returning despite Giudice’s attempts to keep her off the show.

Giudice won’t travel far for filming — she’ll finish the remainder of her sentence with home confinement until February.

“They want to make sure the cast is full of people connected to Teresa,” says our source. “Her relatives and her once-best-friend, Jacqueline, will help them tell the story of Teresa’s time away, and return home, without looking like Bravo is making light of her crime. It will be more focused on family.”

The reality star, who celebrated her 43rd birthday on Monday inside the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn., is serving a sentence for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.

Giudice has been locked up since of Jan. 5 and has “adjusted” to life in the clink, going to the gym regularly and working in the kitchen. She can email short letters, which are monitored by prison officials, to her family, and calls home for 10 minutes a day, we’re told. Her daughters Gia, 14; Gabriella, 10; Milania, 8; and Audriana, 5, visited her in jail on Mother’s Day.

Teresa and husband Joe will swaps place in January, when he reports to the clink to start his 18-month sentence for misdeeds in the handling of the family business.

Fitness trainer Shaun T wasn’t surprised when TLC singer Chili pulled him on stage at a recent show in Phoenix, but he was surprised by the lap dance that followed. “The night of the concert, I was already planning to go, but she texted me and said ‘Would you mind if I pulled you up on stage during ‘Red Light Special?’ I was like, ‘Are you kidding me, of course!’ ” he told The News’ Meredith Engel. “I didn’t know what she was gonna’ do but you I loved every single minute.”

Beyoncé and Jay Z know a good Daily News tip when they see one. The duo have been getting ideas on restaurants to hit from New York’s hometown paper. On Tuesday, the power couple had a date night at the recently opened Mamo in SoHo, an outpost of the Mamo Le Michelangelo in Antibes, which they visit while vacationing in the south of France.

Queen Bey told owner Mike Mammolitti, whose father owns the French Riviera original, that she read about the buzzy New York opening in The News. The 23-year-old original waterfront spot is a favorite among stars, especially during the Cannes Film Festival, and the New York restaurant opened earlier this month across the street from the SoHo Grand.

We’re told the couple were on a date while there and went bonkers over the restaurant’s truffles. They ordered the raviolini al tartufo (truffle ravioli in a light cream sauce), the focaccia al tartufo and the cheesecake alla lavanda. And Bey still looks flawless.

The couple have been feeling extra-charitable lately, paying “tens of thousands” in bail money for protesters arrested in Baltimore after the killing of Freddie Gray, and have given to the “Black Lives Matter” campaign.
