She’s back! Well, she’s not back yet, as she is still serving a prison sentence, but the controversy that seems to follow her is back. According to RadarOnline, the other RHONJ castmates got wind that Teresa Giudice was offered $1 million dollars to come back this season, and they are banding together to demand huge raises.
Earlier this week, the Inquisitr reported that Teresa Giudice has other plans for getting out of prison, like kicking her husband to the curb.
“It’s very important to Teresa that her daughters think well of her. She doesn’t want them to wonder how she could stay with him when he’s doing this to her … Teresa has already consulted with a lawyer, and she’s going to file papers as soon as she gets out. Teresa has been plotting revenge. She wants to get out of jail and punch his lights out.”
Maybe this is why she needed to score such a big contract?
But the other Real Housewives of New Jersey don’t care what Teresa is dealing with, and are furious that they are getting stiffed. An insider told Radar Online that the other ladies on RHONJ are “disgusted that Teresa is getting such a huge paycheck, especially since she is a convicted felon!” an insider told Radar. “It sends a very bad message to their fans that crime does indeed pay.”
So Melissa Gorga, Dina Manzo, and Jacqueline Laurita want a million dollar payday, too, but Teresa Giudice will not actually make that much, as court documents, obtained by Radar, show that her wages will be garnished at a rate of 25 percent to make restitution for her crimes.
“It is hereby AGREED that defendant, Teresa Giudice consents to the following: Sirens Media (producer of RHONJ), Garnishee, shall withhold 25% of any monies held on behalf of, or payable to Teresa Giudice, and pay the sum to the plaintiff.”
The Parent Herald is also reporting that Teresa and Joe Giudice have sold other possessions in order to whittle down their debts. They reported that Teresa sold her car to pay some court fees, and have considered a sale of their residence and shore home.
Former RHONJ star Caroline Manzo had her hands full this past weekend as her daughter, Lauren, married long-time boyfriend Vito Scalia at the Manzo-owned Brownstone in Paterson, NJ.
Do you think it is fair that Teresa Giudice makes more money each season than the other ladies on RHONJ?
