Teresa Giudice is only about halfway through her 15-month prison sentence. (She began serving in January but will likely qualify for early release.) However, she's already receiving good news about her post-big house financial situation.
Yesterday, we learned that Teresa's assets are being seized, including her Maserati, some expensive furniture, and a chunk of her future earnings.
Today, the silver lining to that black cloud emerged, as we now know that Teresa will at least have a salary for the feds to garnish.
Yes, Radar Online is reporting that Teresa will be returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey, so that producers can capitalize on the drama of Teresa readjusting to life on the outside, just as her husband, Joe Giudice, prepares to begin his 41-month sentence.
“Without Teresa there just isn’t a lot going on with the women,” says one woman. “With her on board, cameras would film Joe’s final days with the family as he prepares to begin his 41 month prison sentence.”
The source notes that Teresa is unable to formally seal the deal while she's locked up, but producers have all but guaranteed her involvement in the show by pushing back the start of filming to align with Teresa's release date.
“Teresa hasn’t signed a formal contract yet, but it’s only a matter of time,” says the source.
So there it is - some actual good news for the Giudices. Given how much the universe seems to have it in for this family, you can expect Juicy Joe to spend the kids' college funds on hookers some time this afternoon;.
