You've really gotta love/completely despise Teresa Giudice.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member could be facing years in jail for financial fraud. She's lucky to be a free woman at the moment, let alone someone earning six figures for starring on a reality show.
But Giudice still has something to whine about: she feels exploited by Bravo!
According to a Radar Online source, Teresa can't believe producers are taking advantage of "her legal trouble for ratings,” which may be the most ridiculous complaint we've ever heard.
What, exactly, did Giudice think the show would center on when she signed up for Season 6?!?
Moreover, Giudice recently grew angry after the network arranged for her to do a sit-down interview with The New York Post, one she considered to be “an absolute hatchet job."
The interview painted Giudice as petty and spoiled, with Teresa upset because the Bravo publicist on hand did nothing to steer the conversation in a more professional direction.
"Teresa has been lighting up the publicity department’s phones and emails revealing how upset she is. It’s non-stop. Nobody knows what to do to make her happy," a Bravo insider says.
Another source, meanwhile, sympathizes with the troubled mother of four.
"Bravo needs to recognize and respect that Teresa is facing serious prison time, and stop looking at her for ratings only. Whether you like Teresa or not, she is a human being, and deserves to be dealt with professionally."
Yes, she's a human being. Who broke the law on multiple occasions. And who agreed to have her life chronicled for television. Sorry if we're not breaking out our violins.
