According to TMZ, Teresa and Joe Giudice were paid a whopping $325,000 for a two part one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live.”
A source tells TMZ, the network offered $275K for Teresa alone, but kicked in another $50K to have her less interesting husband onboard.
The felonious couple sat down with Andy Cohen for a special interview last night, read our recap here.
Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison and Joe was sentenced to 3.5 years on October 2. In addition to the prison terms, Judge Salas ordered the couple to forfeit $414,588. Additionally, the judge fined Joe Giudice $10,000 and fined Teresa Giudice $8,000. The Giudices need cash badly to pay their restitution.
However, Andy Cohen tweeted, “oh lord don’t believe everything you read there is a ton of misinformation out there today – more than usual!”
I’m not sure if Andy’s tweets directly dispel the rumors but it seems to subliminally address the rumor. Another rumor this week was that Teresa was 4 hours late to the reunion. Andy addressed that one head on, in the following tweet.
