Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa and Joe Giudice were sentenced yesterday for their federal fraud case. Joe Giudice walked away with 41 months in prison as well as two years in probation while Teresa got 15 months. Teresa will begin her sentence in January after the holidays so that she is able to spend it with her four daughters.
Teresa who was reportedly hoping to cash in for a paid interview is unlikely to happen. Radar revealed that by contract the Giudices’ will have to sit with Andy if they want to do any interview meaning they will lose out on money with other interviewers.
“Andy has the first right of refusal under Teresa’s contract with Bravo…Obviously, Andy and Bravo know this will be ratings gold, and wouldn’t pass up the chance to interview Teresa one-on-one. Teresa had been in talks with several entertainment shows to do a paid interview, but now that won’t be happening. She has to tell Bravo in writing what media interviews she is doing, and Bravo has the right to do it first. This interview will be separate from the reunion show. The last thing Teresa wants to do is do an interview with Andy about how she feels about whatever the criminal punishment will be. She will do it, and plans on being as non-emotional as possible. There is no way Andy is going to make Teresa cry.”
Teresa is a very strong person and there is no doubt in my mind that she is going to be OK! If I was Teresa, I just wouldn’t do any interviews and focus on the time I have with my family.
