Teresa Giudice may be behind bars, but she’s managing to make the situation lucrative for her. First, there’s the ‘Real Housewives New Jersey’ special that’s airing this week and shows how Joe Giudice is managing to care for their four daughters on his own. She’s also said to be negotiating for her first post-prison interview, too.
In a clip from the ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ special, their 14-year-old daughter Gia tells her aunt, Melissa Gorga:
I mean, he’s pretty good. He helps out and tries his best. It’s rough without my mom there.”
In one scene Teresa calls from prison and prays:
Oh, please God bring me home to my family as soon as possible. And bless my four daughters and my husband. Amen.”
So how’s Joe doing?
It’s hard keeping up with all these kids. I’m doing a lot. I think I’ve lost about 10 pounds. It’s just amazing how [Teresa] still controls everything while she’s in there.”
That will be interesting to see!
Meanwhile, Teresa is planning an interview for after she is released from prison. Her lawyer reportedly has reached out to media outlets.
She wants at least $200,000 because there are many creditors Teresa needs to pay off. The ideal situation would get competing magazines to start a bidding war pushing the number over $200,000.
“Teresa would use her own hair and make-up team but wouldn’t pay for it. That would be the responsibility of the outlet that gets the interview.”
However, some don’t think a $200,000 payday is likely.
[The idea of getting $200,00 for an interview is] delusional, especially since she sold photos of herself visiting with the kids while behind bars to a tabloid. The demand has been driven down obviously because the public got a hint of how she looked physically. It seems very unlikely Teresa will get the huge paycheck she wants.”
The Feds have already arranged to garnish 25% (OUCH) of any paycheck she gets after her prison release. Something tells me Teresa will manage this, though. She may not get $200,000 for one interview, but she’ll likely get a lucrative deal for some kind of reality show to see how she’s adjusting after getting out of prison. Here’s a clip from the ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ special:
