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.

    I suspect the TMZ amount was floated by Teresa backers in order to get her big paychecks from the tabloids who will be after her next.

    • TartLemon

      Great point. I understand Bravo making everything they can from this situation, but hope they have no post prison long standing contracts with the FELON.

      Frankly, I don’t believe Teresa can sustain any of her faux celebrity notoriety being out of the public eye for so long. Her talent is showing off the stolen stuff. The publishers will find a new celebrity face to package and the food/wine companies will not put their own businesses on hold for the time Teresa is incarcerated.

      • Tre’s Going to Prison

        I agree AND…I hope they have no “Pre Prison” long standing contracts with these nimrods either!

    OT#1

    First, I want to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers. They WORKED!!! All three masses were BENIGN!!!! We are so thrilled here at the nan household….you have no idea. I couldn’t understand why I continued to hurt so much, but after meeting with my doctor yesterday afternoon, he explained in much too graphic detail what had been done, and why my soreness persists…BUT, this too shall pass, and he gave me a clean bill of health. :-)) YAY!!!

    I could not have remained sane waiting for the tests results without coming here and sharing time with you. You are all amazing, I treasure AAtT and all of the outstanding people who are a part of it. Thanks a million for being there for me.

    Love you all…really and truly,

    Nancy

  • She Stinks!

    I can’t wait til Tre does her time, then they just drag her back in for more crimes. She will be a repeat criminal, a part of the revolving prison door. Juicy will leave her and go back to Italy and hide out, get drunk, and run around with tacky HO’s.

    • toolate2care2000

      I think you could use a hobby.

  • Jennymckitty

    Fabulous interview..so insightful… Money well spent, Bravo

  • CeeJay

    Think they told the kids yet? Probably not. Melania will have to tie those two hooligans down and force them to finally admit they f’d everything up. In the mean time she’s side eyeing them every chance she gets. Maybe she’s booking odds with the neighborhood kids on how long it will take her parents to grow a set of balls.

    • TartLemon

      The girls have been in school the past 2 days. They know.

      • Chloe

        Of course they know. How could they not know.

      • CeeJay

        Absolutely and the longer they wait to deal with it one on one with the girls the more respect those kids lose for them.

        • Chloe

          That’s right. Also throw in resentment.

      • chacha1

        And dont forget there are the bullies that hate on the Guidice girls who will be rubbing it in their faces at school and have been for a long time, the Convicts have been on local news for months now and Gabriella being so quiet and withdrawn has probably been the most affected …. Gia and Milania are nasty and will bully back.

    • Chloe

      Hahaha. Milania is smarter than her parents and probably know more about their plea than they do. Don’t underestimate that kid.

  • TartLemon

    I bet Teresa is bawling, trying to get Andy to NOT air the rest of the interview. Social media has been brutal today. Before it was pretty tough, but since the court proceedings were closed, all we had was hearsay and speculation.

    Now, there is conclusive proof Teresa is a lying sack of crap who refuses to show any remorse or contrition for crimes she CHOSE to commit.

    • chacha1

      And as she was spewing her lies and playing the poor me violin I thought her false teeth were going to fly out of her nasty mouth

  • chacha1

    The Convicts think the daughters don’t know … what a couple of maroooons they are … they have social media and any 8 year old (Milania Capone) and 11 year (Gabrielle) have been navigating and googling their name for a year now …. stupid freakin convicts to say only Gia knows ….

    • WestCoastFeed

      I have a soft spot in my heart for Gabriella. She is the pretty one who hides from the camera. While, of course I really don’t know what she is like, I picture her frightened for her parents and suffering in silence because she is afraid to ask them what is going on. Of course she knows something and her schoolmates may be scaring her even more with horror tales of prison life.

      • chacha1

        ITA with you WCF she always seemed to be pushed aside by Teresa in favor of Gia ….. and she is really a pretty little girl who probably took a beating from her classmates over the Convicts disgusting behavior on TV

  • Susie Whats Her Name

    Getting paid $325,000 to tell how you feel about being sentenced to serve time in prison. Only in America.

    • chacha1

      It makes you sick doesn’t it … just like the morons who send money and love letters to convicted murderers ….. smh

  • WestCoastFeed

    ROL is claiming that Bravo will begin filming in 3 weeks in order to film Teresa before she leaves for prison.

    • Word is, they’ve already started filming.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I read somewhere that they filmed all the other cast members Oct 2nd to get their reactions to the sentence. But I figured that was footage to be used this year. It could easily be for next season, too.

    Jailbird Joe bragging about his 2 fers ….. 2 suits, 2 shirts, 2 ties .FER ONLY $250.00 . freakin moron now is humble and frugal
