Teresa Giudice may be spending the next 50 years in prison.
For now, though, this Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member is simply focused on the next few months: insiders confirm she's working on a new deal with the Bravo franchise for one very important reason.
“Teresa is desperate for money,” a source tells Radar Online.
Teresa and husband Joe have pleaded not guilty to federal fraud charges that include lying about their assets in a bankruptcy filing and misrepresenting their fortune in mortgage applications.
A trial date was scheduled for October 8, but then pushed back to early 2014, and legal fees will continue to mount for the couple.
