The Real Reason Teresa Giudice Has Yet To Renew Her Contract For Real Housewives!

| Filed under: Business BlitzReal HousewivesReality TV


When you hear it from this perspective, it actually makes perfect sense!

We reported earlier that Teresa Giudice was holding up production of the third season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey because she was demanding a bigger salary, and new sources are coming forward to verify that this is indeed true - but NOT for the reasons one would assume!

According to insiders, while all the women technically make around $250k for a season, the network compensates Caroline and Jacqueline's adult children for their appearances, so the Manzo families make closer to $310k and $270k respectively!

Meanwhile, despite Teresa's kids constantly being featured on the reality show, they are not compensated any extra due to child labor laws!

The insider explains:

"I think people deserve to know the truth. Bravo pays Caroline and Jacqueline more than Teresa and she isn't holding out because she thinks she's bigger. She just wants to make the same. She brings in ratings and [really] invites viewers into her house, even the birthing room of her daughter. That she gets less — that's crazy! Teresa understands her children can't get paid because of issues with child labor laws, but she just she just wants them to have a college fund. It's actually harder for Teresa because her children are small. She doesn't have a nanny, and she needs to pay babysitters when Bravo forces her to leave town for filming and press. Bravo could make it even by giving the Giudice girls a college fund or trust or by paying for a babysitter or an assistant for Teresa, yet they won't."


If this is true, then we DEFINITELY think that Bravo needs to step it up and help that family out!

Although we're happy to see Danielle gone this season, we'd be devastated if Teresa left the show, too!

What do U think?? Does Teresa deserve to make more money?

    Boo hoo, she can't hire a dozen nannies and can't go shopping every week! You know, because she can't get an actual job or anything, that would cut in on her pampering time!

    Teresa needs to stay!

    I say she should take what she can get.

    Look, without Bravo, she'd be up to her irregularly low hairline in debt right about now while her thug husband pokes her kooch. You think anyone genuinely wants cooking advice from someone who probably sheds chimp hairs in the soup she boils up? Do you think anyone wants to watch this rabid monkey toss a table or shake her junk at a club? No. Not without the show.

    If she can't get the deal she wants, it's 100% better than nothing. She certainly can't rely on her meatball of a husband to pay the bills so I wouldn't mess with the network if I were her.

    Boo fricking Hoo. I wish that hag would be gone from the show along with Danielle. The fact is, Caroline and Jacqueline's kids are adults and have some storylines to contribute that pretty much center around them - i.e., Albie's getting kicked out of law school and J's kid just being a stupid bitch.

    Trust me, no one wants to see teresa's little brats.

    I just recently have found a new love for this show, and Teresa….Bravo needs to keep her on!!

    Perez Hilton, champion against anti-gay bullying and outspoken proponent of… more money for Teresa Guidice?

  7. 7

    Umm the kids don't have a college fund because mommy and daddy blew all the money. Besides here kids are horrible whiny little brats. just leave them off the show because no one wants to watch such ill behaved children anyway. For that matter just leave Teresa off the show and bring in someone that is not part of this whacked family.

  8. 8

    Oh no…Only $250,000??? Shutup and be happy you are getting any money to act like an idiot!

    250K? When she filed for bankruptcy didn't she cite that she only made 40K a year from Bravo? I thought they were only paid like 2-3K per episode? I mean I think that's a very low salary to begin with, I'm just questioning the huge discrepancy

  12. 12

    I was sympathetic until I read "she wants her children to have a college fund." The way they spend cash, they obviously have no interest in saving for their children's future.

    Teresa, per usual, is being disengenious; her mother serves as live-in baby sitter (so I've read); sometimes BRAVO films the mother peaking around a corner of one of the rooms of her (Teresa's) house. HWNJ certainly "plays" the Viewer — the Viewer is constantly being shown Carolyn reguritating particular scenes and putting the Family spin on them (beyond insulting to the Viewer). Perhaps less & less spin will be required in the future as The Family is getting more cohesive in playing their part/roles in the manner that Don Carolyn dictates. With respect to Teresa's kids, she gets a lot of milage out of BRAVO in promoting them/free PR — e.g., Gia's modeling/acting "career." Finally, want to switch gears a bit and state that Viewers should cut Albie some slack — it appears that he gave law school as much effort as he was capable of and it, unfortunately, did not work out for him academically. I respect him for trying and for landing back on his feet so quickly with respect to finding another career path. May he always be an honest/up-front policeman.

    She should be worried about paying some of her debts. What is wrong in this couintry, that someone can spend as negligently as she did and still not lose their home? I think her behavior is criminal. Who gets themselves $11million in debt?

    We are in a fucking recession nothing is for free, especially ones time and reputation..
    Pay up BRAVO, GOD knows you greedy mother fuckers have the money….

    I hate Teresa. She is tacky and blows OTHER PEOPLE'S money. She is also a bully. Let her go Bravo….. please, I'm begging.

  19. 19

    Umm… i'm all for equal pay and everything, but wasn't the original premise of the show how to see how sickening rich "ordinary" housewives live?? Why are they making it sound like Bravo's job to start a college fund for Theresa's kids?? Maybe she should have thought about them more before declaring BANKRUPTCY!! Whatever. I'm totally not falling for the "poor me" argument on this one. I am usually pretty easy to convince, but not in this case.

    Seems this lady bases her self worth on material possessions, the only one I had some respect for was Caroline that was until her son opened or said he wanted to open a stripper car wash, I work in the mental health field and I work with women who were abused everyday.. when you meet these women they seem bubbly and happy alot of them strippers or involved in other lines of sex work, and it just truns my stomach that people like Corlines who comes off so knowledgeable or her son never look deeper and ask why these women do this, trust me they are not happy about it even though they seem thrilled.. and men will take advantage of them all their lives as they did when they were children.. like her son is about to selling their bodies for profit luring men into his carwash.. maybe he should ask his sister to work there???very sad..

    I think she should be paid the same amount as the other ladies. Their kids are receiving compensation, and her kids should too. Plus she isnt saying give me the money in hand, she would like to atleast have the sitters get paid since they have her traveling or have the money put aside for her kids future. I guess all of the negative comments means that majority of the people are Danielle fans, so if she needed her kids compensated it is ok? LOL

  22. 22

    Ya, if she sold all her tacky crap & some of her bizarre outfits, she would have PLENTY for her girls' college fund.

  23. 23

    What is good for one is good for the other. I think that Teresa brings in more viewers than Caroline or Jaquline. For all the haters out there, are ya all just jealous of how much she is making? She will laugh all the way to the bank. All reality stars make too much money. Our dumb down nowaday society has made it this way so blame yourselves. Tv years ago was entertainment. Now it's all BS.

    I wouldn't watch if Teresa wasn't on. I mean I love all the other girls but it's the dynamics of Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline that makes it so funny/watchable. I don't understand how a big network can be so freaking stiff with money…??

  26. 26

    If it weren't for Teresa and Albie, Caroline's son…I wouldn't watch the show. Albi could have his own show, the guy has "it"/star quality/stage presense.

  27. 27

    get off the show and get a job, you dumb bitch!!!!

  28. 28

    Read the article! She is making exactly what the other housewives are. Jac & Caro are NOT getting extra $ cash because their kids are adults; their ADULT children are being compensated. It's a specious argument.

  29. 29

    Stupid American bullcrap attitude! Bottom line you make 250K for filiming a season of this show!!! They also pay for a place to stay food and there are all sorts of other pluses and promo crap that adds to teh salary… Most High end execs, that actually have real jobs, and run fortune 500 companies don't make the same salary as she does and she gets that for beign a mom on a TV show that if she weren't pn she'd still have to be for no money but she needs more money than what she gets… Blah blah… I am sure her kids college funds could easily have been set up by the show had she simply discussed this all up front with Bravo execs… Also I beleive this is crap from her side as in her own words, she'd rather quit a job of being a housewife earning 260K a year, with which she'd easily be able to set up pretty decent education funds in one season of filming and still live pretty good to be a housewife earning nothing and not be able to set up her kids college funds without the job… HMMMM let's think a minute… The people in this real world tv shit need help! don't expect this 15 minutes of high paid fame to last forever use it the right way while you have it and set yourself and your kids up right now while you can instead of demanding more thinking they can't find another housewife to replace you… Really it's normal everydays that make reality TV what it is and there are thousands of her out there… She's an idiot!

    She didn't have a college fund for the kids? That house, those kind of bills on clothing and there was no college fund?

  31. 31

    I like Teresa. I hope she will still be on the show. Her book 'Skiny Italian" is good. I want to see how she is dealing with her family economic problem.
