Fans of Teresa Giudice don't have to be too upset over her non-appearance on "Watch What Happens Live." On Sunday, July 20, host Andy Cohen seemed to promise a disappointed fan that he'll see the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star on a future episode of the show.

The fan wrote that he was looking forward to watching Teresa on "WWHL" and called Andy a "Shady Queen." The tweet didn't go unnoticed. "GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT!" Andy quickly responded.

Another person speculated that perhaps Andy is waiting to throw a huge going away party for Teresa on the show, an obvious reference to the possibility that Teresa may soon be going to prison. Both Teresa and her husband, Joe Giudice, are expected to be sentenced in late September. The two pleaded guilty to multiple counts of fraud in early March. She faces up to 27 months in prison while he faces up to 46 months.

Some people couldn't help making mean and critical comments. One person joked that Teresa will be making her "WWHL" appearance from a prison cell while another two others wrote that Teresa should stop putting herself and her family out on TV.

Earlier in the day, Wetpaint Entertainment reported that Teresa Giudice was originally scheduled to appear on "WWHL" on Sunday, July 20, but she was ultimately replaced by part-time housewife Kathy Wakile and Kathy's sister, Rosie Pierri, who are Teresa's cousins. According to one insider, the network canceled Teresa's appearance because they weren't happy with how she didn't promote the show much in the lead up to the new season.

Teresa Giudice is so well-known and controversial that it's hard to imagine that Bravo would risk high ratings simply to get back at her. Perhaps Bravo just thought that having Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri on "WWHL" right after their first appearance on the new season of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" would just make more sense?
