Although Teresa Giudice just got home from jail and is doing great, she is acting as a single mom while her husband, Joe Giudice, is behind bars. This is, of course, hard on Teresa, but she is also trying to figure out how to pay all of the bills on her own. In Touch Weekly shared that Teresa thinks that joining Dancing With the Stars could end up fixing her problems. It would come with a great paycheck.
Teresa Giudice has been out of jail for a bit now. She has already written a book that was a best-seller, and she is back on The Real Housewives of New Jersey again. A source revealed that it is really important to Teresa that she get on this show. The source said, “Teresa is scrambling for cash so a Dancing With the Stars gig — and the paycheck that comes with it — would be a huge help.” This show does come with a huge paycheck, and if Teresa Giudice could make it pretty far on the show, she would make a lot of money.
The thing is Teresa Giudice has to pay the bills and take care of her girls while Joe is behind bars. Joe Giudice won’t be bringing in money from a prison cell. The couple actually still owes $551,563 in taxes, so she needs to pay for this, too. If Teresa was to win the show, she could make over $300,000. It is also really good for her image to get out there and have everyone seeing her again.
The one thing that would be really hard about this would be that Teresa Giudice would be away from the girls and really busy right in the middle of the school year. This would be hard for her to do with her husband Joe Giudice in prison. Teresa would have to be in LA while the kids were in New Jersey. When Kim Zolciak was on the show, she would go back home to Atlanta for part of her rehearsals. Teresa might be able to work something out like this to make it easier on her.
Celeb Dirty Laundry also shared about how Teresa Giudice wants to join the show. At this time, ABC isn’t speaking out at all about their plans. They will not talk about speculation at all. A source shared, saying, “Teresa is trying to act casual about it, telling friends that it would be fun and that she’d be in great shape. But everyone knows the truth; she’s desperate to get on the show because she doesn’t have a dime.” This could really help her out a lot.
Right now, there is no way to know if Teresa Giudice would actually be invited to join DWTS. They have had people from Real Housewives on the show before, and she is a big name. If Teresa is telling them that she wants to do the show, ABC will probably at least consider her. On August 30, you can watch Good Morning America and find out who will be on the show this season. If Teresa Giudice is joining, this is when the news will come out. The new season of the show begins on September 12.
