Teresa Giudice Scores MAJOR Payday For Pre-Prison interview; Bravo Paid Her HOW MUCH?!

by at .  Updated at .

Even though Teresa GiudiceĀ is headed to prison soon, that doesn't mean the troubled Housewife has any plans to let up in her relentless hustling.

Along with her husband Joe, Teresa sat down for an interview with Bravo recently to speak publicly about her crimes and punishment for the first time since her sentencing.

The interview will air in its entirety tonight, but regardless of whether or not it turns out to be the ratings bonanza that Bravo is banking on, it's already proven to be a hugely lucrative 30 minutes for the Giudices.

The couple was reportedly paid $325,000 for offering Bravo honcho Andy Cohen first crack at an interview.

The network initially offered $275,000 for Teresa alone, but threw in an extra 50 grand in order for Joe to join her.

Of course, the Giudices have been ordered to pay $414,000 in restitution, which means that all of the money they make from the interview will go to directly the victims of their various financial scams.

It's still a pretty sweet deal for Joe and Teresa, as they're now well on their to settling their debt just days after being sentenced.

Teresa has been ordered to report to prison on January 5 in order to begin serving her 15-month sentence.

Joe Giudice has been sentenced to 41 months, and will begin his serving his time after his wife is released.

As always, you can watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online at TV Fanatic to relive the Giudice's fall from grace.
