We have an update on The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast salaries.
According to Radar Online insiders, new cast members Nicole Napolitano, Teresa Aprea and Amber Marchese are making $60,000 for Season 6; Dina Manzo is pulling in $100,000; Melissa Gorga is taking home $250,000.
And Teresa Giudice is making $700,000. For one season of work.
Bravo really has to stop exploiting her, doesn't it?!?
Of course, Teresa and husband Joe are on the hook for a lot of financial fraud, facing an upcoming prison sentence and unable to splurge like they used to with this cash.
"Despite that huge paycheck, most of that money is going to pay for Joe and Teresa’s legal fees," Radar writes, explaining:
"There will also be expected fines assessed to the couple when they are finally sentenced in September, and Teresa has been told that could be up to $250,000."
For those unaware, Giudice pleaded guilty in March to falsifying mortgage documents, lying about her income and other white collar crimes.
This Radar source claims Teresa “hasn’t scalded back on shopping sprees” for her daughters, while doing all she can to come up with new income streams.
She "stays up late at night when the girls and Joe are asleep and tries to come up with ideas to make a quick buck. She feels very limited in the paid promotional appearances she can do with the sentencing date approaching...
"The idea of losing her home and the lifestyle is just to much for her to deal with."
Please don't tell us this is all leading to a Teresa Giudice sex tape. Please.
