AceShowbiz - Teresa Giudice will not stepping onto "Dancing with the Stars" stage as she wanted to focus on her daughters. "She didn't do it because she didn't want to be away from her girls," a source told PEOPLE, "Her focus is family. Her kids are in school and she would not have wanted to be away from them, even for a couple days a week. She sacrificed a nice paycheck to be home with her girls."
According to a "DWTS" source, there was no formal offer being made. The 43-year-old reality star, however, is returning to "The Real Housewives of New Jersey". Andy Cohen confirmed the news on his Sirius XM radio show "Radio Andy", saying, "We were shooting when Teresa left Danbury, when she got home, we've been shooting for the last few months."
Teresa will rejoin her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, and Jacqueline Laurita, who is also returning this season.
Bravo teased the upcoming season of "RHONJ", which will return sometime "later this year." The network said, "This season, Teresa looks to repair fractured relationships with her family and friends. As her release from prison brings the Giudice family back together, the reunion is short-lived as they prepare for Joe to begin his sentence at the end of March. Hoping to repair relationships with her brother and sister-in-law, Teresa reconnects with Joe and Melissa to permanently put the past behind them."
Teresa recently finished her house arrest after serving her 11-month sentence. Her husband Joe Giudice will begin his 41-month prison sentence in March.
