Teresa Giudice Pre-Prison Christmas Special Coming to Bravo: She Got Paid HOW MUCH?!

Even though the delusional reality star is still fighting her sentence, there’s officially no getting around it: Teresa Giudice will serve 15 months in prison beginning on January 5.

Teresa Giudice on The Real Housewives

Though you’d think they’d have enough drama in their lives, sources say the Giudices are arguing about how to spend their last Christmas together before they’re separated for several years.

(Joe Giudice will begin his 41 month sentence after Teresa completes hers.)

We’re not sure if the felonious couple have agreed on how to spend the holidays yet, but one thing’s for sure – it will be a lucrative affair for the entire family.

Teresa and Bravo have reportedly reached a deal for a Giudice family Christmas special that will pay the Real Housewife $250,000, with bonus checks being handed out to the rest of the family.

“Teresa had been very concerned about how she was going to pay for the extravagant gifts for their four daughters at Christmas,” says a source close to the Giudices. “This could be a way for her to say goodbye to her fans ahead of the prison sentence.”

Right…we’re sure saying goodbye to her fans is Teresa’s real motivation here.

Teresa is already one of the highest-paid Real Housewives, with Bravo insiders claiming Giudice’s salary reached $700,000 a year in recent seasons. 

Between that income and the cash from her pre-prison interviews, Teresa has nearly paid off her court-ordered restitution before even beginning her sentence. Jeez, almost seems like she didn’t need to commit all that fraud in the first place, right?

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online at TV Fanatic to see Teresa living high on the hog before it all came crashing down.

Teresa Giudice Begs Judge For Placement In Connecticut Facility Over West Virginia

The Book Expo 2012 In New YorkDid you hear the rumors that Teresa Giudice was talking with new attorneys about possibly appealing her sentence? She made a comment about how she thought her attorneys would “fight for me,” so it sounds like she thought they should have done more. Maybe she blames them for getting prison time over house arrest or probation. Well, Teresa has retained new legal counsel, and her attorney has already sent a letter to the judge in an attempt to get placed at the federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, which is close to New Jersey, over the federal prison on West Virginia. RELATED: Teresa Giudice is recording videos for her daughters while Joe pleads guilty to another crime.

According to Radar Online, Teresa’s attorney has sent a letter to the judge.

During Ms. Giudice’s sentencing, the Court expressed its intent to have Ms. Giudice serve her sentence in a camp environment. The sentencing transcripts reflect that Your Honor mentioned ‘Danbury and West Virginia.’ We acknowledge that at the time of sentencing, defense counsel did not ask for a specific designation.
“However, upon review of the judgment of conviction, and in discussions with a Bureau of Prisons expert, the language of the judgment as written will likely result in Ms. Giudice being designated to Metropolitan Detention Facility Brooklyn, or Metropolitan Correctional Facility Manhattan…both of which are administrative facilities that house females,” the letter continues. “This was clearly not the intention of the court when inquiring as to Danbury or West Virginia as a designation.
“Ms. Giudice’s offense and her Bureau of Prison classification will qualify her to be designated to a camp, however, the language of the judgment must reflect the same. At this time we respectfully request the Court to amend Ms. Giduice’s JOC to state ‘the Court strongly recommends a non-administrative facility placement, specifically, the FCI Danbury Satellite Camp to facilitate visitation with her young children; or if Danbury is full, we would ask for an alternative camp, specifically Alderson in West Virginia, for Ms. Giudice to serve her sentence.’”

Teresa reportedly opted against filing an appeal of her sentence, since it would have been rejected immediately, given that one of the conditions of the plea deal was that she would accept whatever sentence would be handed down. However, even this letter feels unnecessary. The judge doesn’t decide where Teresa will be placed (that’s up to the prison administrators and is based on availability at the time she has to surrender), and the Danbury facility is transitioning to a men-only prison, so it’s unlikely she would be sent there. It looks like she’s going to the mountains of West Virginia.
I can understand Teresa doing this, though. She must feel so helpless. I can’t even imagine…

Bethenny Frankel’s Mother SLAMS Reality Star as "Nasty, Snobby, and Very Arrogant"

We think it’s safe to say Bethenny Frankel and her mother do not get along. They haven’t spoken face-to-face in years and they’ve communicated solely through taking shots at one another in the press.

Bethenny Frankel on Watch What Happens Live

Bernadette Frankel kept the tradition alive today by granting an interview to Radar Online and  –  as expected – doling out some seriously unkind word about her famous daughter.

“The things she does and says on camera is not who she is,” Bernadette says when asked about Bethenny. “She started changing at age 16. She became very snobby and arrogant, especially toward me.”

“She had sex with her first serious boyfriend while still in high school at 16 years old, and she cheated on him about a year later. That’s just how she is. She jumps from man to man.”

Naturally, Bernadette also sounded off about Bethenny’s divorce from Jason Hoppy:

“I always knew that Bethenny and Jason would divorce after two years. I just knew that as soon as that child was in daycare, she was gone. She was really nasty to him on the show.”

Despite the fact that she’s no longer a reality star, Bethenny never stays out of the tabloids for very long.

The latest Frankel controversy involved Bethenny wearing her daughter’s clothes (the girl is 4) in an effort to showcase how scary skinny she’s become.

The kid’s too young to realize how weird that is now, but someday she’ll encounter that photo online and the face palm will be heard ’round the world.

So it looks like the torch has been passed to a new generation of totally effed-up mother-daughter duos. Long live the dysfunctional Frankels!

Condescension Will Get You Everywhere


Sure, it’s better in the long run to treat people with respect, but condescension and burning bridges will bring in ratings and money, so …

Teresa Giudice to Write Tell-All Book While in Prison

Even though Teresa Giudice is still trying to get out of her sentence, the rest of the world knows there’s no getting around it:

Teresa is going to prison. But on the bright side, the PR manager she’s hired to help her navigate the crisis is encouraging her to make productive use of her 15 months behind bars.

Teresa Giudice Going to Court

“She will make money off of a tell-all book because people will want to know her prison secrets,” says Wendy Feldman who is herself an ex-con. “I have shared my prison secrets and tricks with Teresa from day one.”

Feldman has mapped out a strategy for Teresa that includes conducting interviews while she’s still locked up (if prison officials allow it) and launching a nationwide PR as soon as possible after being released. 

Feldman points out that Teresa is in the news now more than ever and has the opportunity to make her substantial Real Housewives of New Jersey earnings look like peanuts.

Now all she needs is a title. Might we suggest: Spray-Tan Orange is the New Black?

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online at TV Fanatic to remind yourself how ridiculous the idea of Teresa Giudice writing a book really is.

Teresa Giudice Recording Videos For Her Daughters While Joe Pleads Guilty Again

'Fabulicious! On The Grill' Book Signing WIth Teresa GiudiceThis just makes me go a little misty-eyed. ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ cast member Teresa Giudice is said to be recording videos for her daughters to watch while she’s incarcerated. Don’t get me wrong: I think justice was served when she was sentenced to prison, but I can’t help but feel bad about the idea of a mother being apart from her four kids for so long. RELATED: Is Teresa fighting with Joe behind the scenes?

Although Teresa is making videos, Joe isn’t, not at this point at least. E! News also reports that they haven’t told all of their daughters that they’re going to prison. Teresa and Joe have four girls: Gia, 13, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 5. I’m guessing Teresa and Joe want their last Christmas together as a family (at least for a few years) to be a happy time, which is why they haven’t let all of the children know. However, a source tells E! that Teresa’s still in denial about the fact that she’s going to prison.

Teresa is still very much in denial about the fact she’s going away. If she had her way, they would never tell the younger girls. They’re definitely avoiding the talk for as long as possible.”

She reportedly has even met with attorneys to talk about contesting her sentence. My understanding is that part of the plea deal was that she HAD to accept whatever sentence she was given; if that’s true, then I’m guessing her meetings with attorneys haven’t been productive.

Meanwhile, Joe was sentenced to another 18 months for driver’s license fraud yesterday. He’ll serve the sentence concurrently, however, so it won’t extend his time in prison, according to Us Weekly. I don’t even know what to say about that. Sources tell E! the couple are not considering a divorce, but I have to say, if I was Teresa, I might be tempted at this point.

Tamra Barney Fires Back at Gretchen Rossi: Some People Never Change!

Last night, Gretchen Rossi called Tamra Barney a lying sociopath during her appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.

Tamra was understandably less than pleased with her former co-star’s assessment, and she slammed Gretchen in awesomely passive-aggressive fashion in an interview with Radar Online today.

  • Tamra Barney Red Carpet Pic
  • Gretchen Rossi Red Carpet Pic

“Gretchen who?” Barney said. “I wish her nothing but happiness in the future.”

“It’s sad that she finally got the opportunity to come back to Bravo and all she can do is talk about me. Some people never change!”

Needless to say, Tamra’s toned things down a lot since the time she called Gretchen a “nasty b-tch” back in May.

Of course, we’re sure if these two were forced to share screen time again, things would get very ugly, very quickly.

Tamra once bragged that she ran Gretchen out of the OC, after Rossi departed The Real Housewives of Orange County last year.

Hopefully, Tamra realizes that if she keeps feuding with Gretchen, producers are just gonna offer her a boatload of cash to return to the show. Pointless drama is like cat nip to Bravo execs.

Speaking of pointless drama, watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online at TV Famatic to relive every insane argument between Gretchen and Tamra.

Why would you trust a chick ...


… with boobs bigger than her brain?

Teresa Giudice: Meeting With Divorce Attorney?!

Joe Giudice is due in court today to be sentenced for possession of a fraudulent driver’s license.

It’s small potatoes compared to the fraud charges that have already gotten Giudice sentenced to 41 months in prison, but even so, one might expect his wife to join him in court.

Instead, sources say Teresa will be meeting with a divorce attorney to begin the process of ending her 14-year marriage to Joe.

Giudices Go to Court

Rumors that Joe and Teresa are headed for divorce have been circulating for months, but insiders say that we’ll no longer have to speculate as to the state of the Giudice’s marriage, as Teresa is intent on calling it quits.

Reportedly, the Giudices have been living in separate homes ever since they were both sentenced to serve prison time last month.

Teresa is said to be fed up with Joe’s drinking and negligent parenting, and friends say she continues to blame her husband for the fact that she’ll have to report to prison on January 5.

Of course, despite signing a plea deal, Teresa is still trying to get out of her sentence, and further proving that she really doesn’t understand how the law works, she’ll reportedly demand that her divorce lawyer also help her appeal her conviction.

“Teresa really likes [the attorney], and will likely hire to handle the appeal of her looming prison sentence,” says a source. “She is going with her gut instincts on this one.” That should turn out well.

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online to relive the many times Teresa’s gut instincts have let her down in the past.

Phaedra Parks Talks About Decision To Divorce Apollo Nida On ‘Ellen’

phaedra parks on ellenLast week Phaedra Parks’s rep announced that she was planning to divorce her incarcerated husband, Apollo Nida. Today Phaedra will appear on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show‘ to talk about her decision. Ellen asked some great questions, I thought. RELATED: Phaedra Parks plans to divorce Apollo Nida.

Phaedra insisted she had no idea Apollo was committing crimes.

I really didn’t. I mean, I work. I just got my fifth college degree. And so I’m pretty much an overachiever. I have two very small children. I just stopped breast-feeding three months ago. So, I didn’t have any idea this was going on until he called me and he said, ‘Hey, I’ve been arrested and I’m having this problem, but it’s not true.’ So I went out of my way to get him the best attorneys, the best investigators, and to do anything I could, because I’m an attorney myself and so I wanted him to have the best. So we could fight this together, but obviously it did not turn out like that.”

Ellen pointed out that Apollo was out on parole for another crime when they met, so didn’t that raise any red flags for her?

Well, to be honest, he had been to prison and he was a changed person. So the person I married, I thought he was changed.”

Phaedra has five college degrees and is an attorney but didn’t think anything of marrying and having children with a man who had just gotten out of prison? Apollo was paroled after his first conviction in 2009; they married shortly thereafter and had two sons (who are three and seventeen months). Well, I guess this just goes to show, we do see what we want to see. Ellen also asks her about her plans for divorce, having to raise her two sons alone, and the cheating rumors. Check out the clip below.

Kat Dennings and Josh Groban: Dating!

Remember Josh Groban? If not, then go pay your mom a visit and check out her CD colletcion. Yup, that guy.

Groban had a handful of hits in the mid ’00s and he’s since since shown off his acting chops with appearances in Muppets Most Wanted and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

We won’t bother to ask if you know who Kat Dennings is, because boobs.

Anyway, it’s an inspirational day for band geeks and chorus nerds the world over, because Groban has proven to the world that by harnessing the power of music, you too can ensure a future filled with giant, awesome breasts.

Josh Groban and Kat Dennings

Yes, Groban and Dennings are dating. Dennings posted the above photo of the two of them at some red carpet event. The actress later confirmed that she and Groban are an item.

Both have histories of dating fellow celebs: Kat recently broke up with 2 Broke Girls co-star Nick Zano. (Although there’s apparently no truth to the rumor that Dennings dated Drake.)

For his part, Groban’s been romantically linked to Katy Perry and Mad Men star January Jones. (Although his most impressive accomplishment remains his musical rendition of the best Kanye tweets.)

This isn’t a couple that anyone saw coming, and their names don’t lend themselves to a good mash-up (Gronnings? Kash?), butJosh and Kat are both mighty cool in their own rights, and we certainly wish them the best.
