Report: Teresa Giudice Is Already Filming the Next Season of ‘RHONJ’
Reality TV star Teresa Giudice is reportedly going ahead with the next season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” and will let her prison sentence be part of the TV drama.
RadarOnline.com reports the 42-year-old, who was convicted of bankruptcy and bank fraud along with husband Joe Giudice, has already begun filming the 7th season of the Bravo reality hit as she preps to begin her 15-month sentence on January 5.
A source told Radar, “It was a no-brainer for Teresa to decide to do the show, because she obviously needs the money to pay off mounting debts. The producers were thrilled, because it will result in a ratings bonanza.”
According to Radar, Giudice is also negotiating more money for her four daughters, Gia, 13, Gabriella, 9, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 5.
An insider said, “Teresa is using the girls as leverage to get more money. She knows viewers will want to see how they are coping with the fallout from their parents' legal problems.”
Teresa will also be featured in a holiday special to say goodbye to fans before she goes to prison.
