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.
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?
