Two days ago Teresa and Joe Giudice faced a judge in their bail hearing where they consented to understanding the 39-charges leveled against them and agreed to the terms set under their bail agreement. As part of that they were required to pay a whopping $1 million dollars bail ($500,000 apiece!). Wanna know where they came up with the money? Teresa's earning baaaank!
And apparently not reporting it to the IRS.
Sources told the NY Daily News that Teresa earns a whopping $33,000 per episode of RHONJ which equals about $750,000 per season! In addition she also earns bonuses for things like appearances on WWHL.
In addition Teresa earns hundreds of thousands for book advances, royalties and revenues, and earnings from other products like Milania Hair Care, her website, endorsement deals (like PearlBrite) and Fabulicious Foods, a prepared foods line she is launching.
“She has been a huge success on the show,” Teresa's attorney Henry Klingeman said. “She has millions of fans and we’re hoping that all the good qualities that led to her becoming a television celebrity and attracting as many fans as she has will continue to resonate through this case.”
Teresa's attorney added that people should reserve judgment because what we see on TV isn't necessarily the truth. “While it’s called reality television, I’m not sure everything you see on the show is real."
Well, Teresa's fans better continue to buy her stuff cause the RHONJ star needs the money more than ever! She owes thousands in fines and back-taxes, along with mounting legal bills. Oh brother…
