Teresa Giudice is talking prison fights, working out in jail, and more in a new diary while her husband Joe Giudice is busy at home playing Mr. Mom, which will be featured in a one-hour special. And Joe will make $150,000 for that show, according to Radar Online.
The show agreement comes after months of negotiating on Joe’s side.
“The last thing Joe wanted to do was a reality show, but it was really the only option because there was no money coming in,” said a source. “With Joe still not working, just putting food on the table was becoming very hard without handouts from their parents.”
That big payday will help the couple with their government obligations of $400,000.
Meanwhile, The Real Housewives of New Jersey reality TV star is dishing the details of life behind bars as part of her new diary, reported Us Weekly.
In the Danbury, Connecticut, Federal Correction Institution since January, 2015 while Joe holds down the fort at home, Teresa has been busily penning away the hours. Giudice is covering everything everything from jail fights to bad food in her journal, which will be turned into a book once she is free at the end of December.
She doesn’t hold back about what she observes behind bars that is dramatically different from her normal Real Housewives world.
There is a lady in here, she hit her roommate. The officers are up here now to evaluate the situation. She is a crazy lady who fights with everyone.”
As the Inquisitr reported, Giudice also has expressed her thanks to her fans for their support.
“Thank you everyone for all of the cards, letters, and kind words of support I love, love, love you all xo T!”
As for entertainment in the Federal Correction Institution, Giudice takes yoga and Pilates classes, reported the New York Daily News.
In addition, she tries to keep her mind off her longing for Joe and her daughters by watching Real Housewives on TV.
“At 8:00, watched Atlanta’s ‘Housewives’ and was seeing Porsha’s [EX]husband [retired football player Kordell Stewart] hooking up with someone she works with. Not a good idea!” Giudice opined in a diary entry.
But can she return to the Real Housewives Of New Jersey? Neither her lawyer nor the probation department has approved Giudice’s appearance on future RHONJ episodes, according to Radar Online.
“The probation department hasn’t signed off on it,” added an insider. “And the probation department has to approve Teresa’s employer and employment because of the terms of her release.”
However, Joe Giudice is definitely committed to filming his own special, reported Us Weekly.
The show will feature the couple’s four girls with Mr. Mom Joe. The focus will be on their home life without Teresa.
And with all those daughters, Joe has no worries about what to do with his free time. Playdates, cheer practice, and soccer tournaments fill up his days.
“Days go by quick,” admitted Joe. “They go to school, they come back, they do their homework. Who’s gotta go here? Who’s gotta go there?”
