Teresa Giudice: Earning 12 Cents an Hour, Blaming Family For Prison Sentence

by at .

It's a good thing Teresa Giudice made big bucks for her pre-prison interviews, because now that the former Housewife is behind bars, her paychecks won't have quite as many zeroes.

By which we mean, she'll be lucky if there are any numbers in front of the decimal point.

Teresa reported to prison on Monday, and sources say that like all other inmates at Danbury Correctional, she was likely put to work on day one.

Mortgage Fraud

The exact nature of her job is unknown, but it almost certainly involves manual labor, and pays approximately jack squat.

Teresa might make as little as 12 cents an hour.

To make matters worse, since Teresa was found guilty of bankruptcy fraud, half of her pay has to go toward paying off her $414,588 debt to her creditors. 

One might think she'd really be regretting her shady actions at this point, but naturally, the reality-star-turned-jailbird is still finding ways to point the finger at everyone but herself.

At first, Teresa blamed her husband for her legal woes, now she's reportedly moved on to hating on her brother and sister-in-law, Joe and Melissa Gorga.

"She thinks they made her look like a bad character [on the show] and that ultimately is why she had to go to jail," an insider tells Radar Online. "What Teresa doesn't realize is that she made herself look bad in terms of how she dealt with the charges."

"It's sad that she can't take accountability even at this stage."

Yes, "sad" is pretty much Teresa's middle name these days. Watch the Real Housewives of New Jersey online to relive a time when Teresa was just pathetic, and not insanely depressing.
