Reality star Teresa Giudice is apparently not getting a cooking show on Bravo after all.
Previous reports claimed that Teresa Giudice would have her own cooking show (with a lucrative deal attached) waiting for her after she completes her prison sentence.
However, a rep for the 42-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star reportedly told Radar Online that those claims are “not true.”
An inside source even went as far as stating that the relationship between Bravo and the recently convicted felon is not as good as many RHONJ fans and critics might think.
“Teresa hasn’t been offered any new projects with Bravo. In fact, there is [sic] a lot of bad feeling where Bravo and Teresa are concerned. The network feels used, and was stunned Teresa said in court documents that the show was a sham.”
The insider continued by stating that the television network would never sign Teresa Giudice up for her own spin-off show after everything that has happened in recent months.
Recent reports claim that someone within Teresa’s circle has been floating false stories in the media about her with the hopes of helping her get some work.
“[Teresa Giudice] is desperately trying to figure out how she is going to pay off the remainder of the $210,000 restitution. With no new job offers out there, it’s going to be very hard for Teresa to come up with the money.”
Teresa Giudice has a little more than one month remaining before she is required to report to prison on January 5. At that time, Giudice will begin her 15-month federal prison sentence.
According to People, Teresa Giudice has been spending as much quality time with her children as possible before that time comes. An inside source claimed that she did not even hire a nanny, and has been running back and forth with her four daughters.
The report further states that Teresa Giudice has been praying a lot more recently, specifically for her daughters, her family, and her ill father.
She and her husband, Joe Giudice, received separate prison sentences after they both pleaded guilty to 41 counts of fraud back in March. The married reality TV stars were accused of mail, bank, bankruptcy, and wire fraud, which allowed them to generate more than $5 million in a 10-year period.
After Teresa Giudice completes her 15-month sentence, she will be able to reunite with her daughters. Her husband will then begin his 41-month sentence.
