EXCLUSIVE: Details on Why Teresa Giudice Is Not Getting Her Own Cooking Show

Posted on Dec 4 2014 - 12:42pm by BeachSpin

A Fabulicious Mother's Day and live recipe demonstration with The Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Giudice in Bensalem, PA

One thing that most people in the know would agree on when bantering about “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star, Teresa Giudice, is that her reputation for being a busy bee is solid. Whether it’s churning out cookbooks or making stomachs churn with cheap wine, showing up for personal appearances, or just chasing after the latest designer duds for Milania, Teresa is always hustlin’.

Teresa Giudice is set to surrender to federal prison in about a month, and one commonly raised question asks, what exactly comes next for a convicted felon who will be out of commission, and absent from her TV gig for a whole year? That’s exactly why people went berserk all over social media, when it was reported that Teresa had inked a lucrative deal with Bravo to host her own cooking show, as well as had solidified a part time Housewife spot, the hour she gets sprung from the pen. An inside source close to Teresa reached out to All About the Tea, and spilled it, calling FOUL on this story, insisting that it is absolutely false.

Our tipster revealed that a similar deal had been in the works during the months that Teresa was awaiting her sentencing. That tidbit, along with the $2 million figure, which our source confirmed was proposed by Teresa herself, points to this story being presumably planted by the Giudice camp, but in reality, the contract that was being assembled did not include Bravo, and it consisted of much more than a cooking show. Again, Teresa’s looming sentence is the giant chink in the money making armor.

According to our EXCLUSIVE source, a package known as a Special Project Appearance (SPA) global deal was pitched to a network. The global deal consisted of a series of sit down interviews, including pre and post-prison appearances, as well as a cooking show, that would be kicked off after Teresa was set free.

Joe and Teresa’s one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen was a ratings jackpot, which would presumably sell Teresa’s inside story as profitable to the networks. This deal was pitched to a network, with Bravo not being a player in the game. The $2 million figure would be collected over a period of years, and would cover the payment for the whole shebang, not just the cooking show. Any proposed extra projects would be contingent on working effectively under the umbrella of the SPA. It appears likely that there will be before and after incarceration interviews, but that is all that is predictable at this point.

The bottom line, according to our insider, is that there is NO Bravo ‘Cooking With Felons’ show in the works. The SPA is currently off the table partially because of the scattered upheaval that followed Teresa’s sentencing. The network producers and executives that did review the deal shot it down, largely because Teresa’s post prison mental state is still a giant, and investment risky question mark. A year behind bars is sure to change anyone…even a workhorse like Teresa Giudice.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Congrats on the scoop, Beach.
    Was that “scattered upheaval” the sound of millions barfing?

  • Nene robs kids

    There is no end to this crazy ass felon and her hustling ways! Go to prison now please!

    • Marsbars09

      They need to throw Tre’s trifling ass in prison and throw away the key. I’m so sick of hearing how she’s trying to dodge serving her sentence.

  • Nene robs kids

    Great scoop Beach! Keep them coming I love your site

  • MorningYawn

    sniff, sniff… so sad for Teresa… it wasn’t her FAULT y’all! HAAAHAHAHAHA

  • Good research Beach! Too bad Teresa blew this cooking show deal for lack of a brain. She’s too dumb to pull off the interviews & cooking show without her former crisis manager holding her hand and whispering in her earpiece.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Doc! Tre’s shenanigans are showing how truly dumb, ignorant, and uneducated she really is. She has no reasonable intelligence whatsoever.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Doesn’t Bravo have some kind of “right of refusal” for a couple of years after a cast member leaves? I seem to remember that they retain the right to okay any move to another network. Anyone have an answer?

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Sounds like a slave contract. I thought their contracts were renewed every year.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    No deal for Teresa! This is good news. She or any other criminal should not be rewarded for bad behavior. She couldn’t pull off her own show anyway.

    • Marsbars09

      ITA.

  • Shelly Jones

    I cant see her doing a cooking show.

    • Marsbars09

      Tre probably could pull it off with an interpreter. 😉

      • Shelly Jones

        Or perhaps mispronounced word subtitles. EXAMPLE: Ingrediences = Ingredients

        • Marsbars09

          LOL! Great one Shelley!

  • twifan2

    Well dang!
    Now I have to unload my stock in Tums! :/

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Tums will still be necessary!!! she will find a way to make some moola!!!

      • WestCoastFeed

        There’s still that shipping container of Felonellini to peddle. Packaging it with Tums as a gift with purchase would be ideal.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          LOL!!!!!!!! Great idea–hope she reads this!!!!!!

    • Seriously!! Maybe you can return them.

  • WestCoastFeed

    A couple of years ago, a casting agent was on twitter or facebook looking for women to compete with each other making their favorite Italian recipes. The concept was that Teresa would host the show and select the winning entrant.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    After what we know about her special “ingredients”, why would anyone trust this ape???

    • HAHAHAHA!!! Who in their right mind would buy any of her cookbooks when NONE of those recipes are hers. She doesn’t cook. Notice no culinary schools have ever hosted her like they do with Kathy Wakile.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        She can’t read or write, how could she “host” anything. the woman is totally ignorant!!!

        • That’s why the deal is done. She doesn’t have Wendy Feldman there to spoon-feed her dialogue. And make sure she stays stabilized.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Caroline Manzo would make a terrific side-kick for Tre. Caroline can cook and talk at the same time.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            But remember, according to Treape, Caroline is only 1/16th Italian!!!! What was Treape ever even thinking to write that????

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Poor Wendy!!!!! What a horrible job that must be. I hope she is well compensated for working with apeface!

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Don’t forget ‘talk’ — she can’t talk either.

        • Pinky Pie

          Imagine teresa giving instructions on how to make something, and then trying to follow them. It would be anger inducing. Plus, if people don’t want to follow Gwyneth Paltrow as a life style expert, why would they follow Teresa Giudice the poverty stricken baboon who is a convicted felon. Why would anyone want to follow. Her life style advice?

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Kathy’s canolis look delicious. They are just a little to pricy for me though. I hope she makes a bundle!!!!

        • Oh yes! They are amazing but I don’t like the assembly hassle.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            It is easier to buy ready made at grocery store!!!! (cheaper too!!!!!)

  • She Stinks!

    Good. I have zero interest in seeing a cooking show with this uneducated no talent grifter felon. I doubt Giada and Ina Garten are worried about this trash taking their places.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      She probably has cases and cases of ready made sauce in her pantry!!!! Prego!!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    One of the complaints in Teresa’s latest lawsuit is that her lawyer’s negligence and malpractice resulted in her being the butt of—ridicule and public derision. Yep. She can just cut and past blogs from here to prove it. I’d advise her to choose the Saturday Funnies blogs.
    Now for more ridicule and derision, gang.

    • This is hilarious! And I’m SO happy she filed the malpractice suit because now MORE of her lies will be uncovered.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        I love lawyers and the lawyers are going to love this!!!!! Shakespear knew what he was talking about!!!! What a trip this will be!!!!

        • twifan2

          NAWS!!!!
          Hi Hi Youses & The Pennster too! 🙂
          Can you imagine how much a person(s) could make putting a ‘comic’ book together from that suit!? 😮

          • twifan2

            & it would be PUBLIC domain, so she’d never see a cent of it in HER pockets! 🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Even better!!!!

          • twifan2

            Tell The Pennster Chats would be willing to collaborate with her. 😉
            *I get dibs on the pizza*

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Done deal!!! The Pennster is ready for some fame—she is tired of sharing with Giggy!!!!

          • twifan2

            The Pennster will have to do the pics. Chats’s still in a cast, I’m busy eating pizza & I guess you’re tied up with eating canolis…. 🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            LOL!!!!! For sure!!!!

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Hi Twi. How’s the poor little man doing? How on earth did he do that?
            Oh pizza! Sounds yummy. Enjoy.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I think that would sell too!!! Even my doctors tell me their wives watch the shows!!!!! (I think the docs watch too, but are too embarrassed to say!!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Twi, can you cyber-bind the Saturday Funnies? That’s a best seller for sure. And would be exhibit A when Tre gets to court.

          • twifan2

            Edi would have to do it. But it can be done.
            Let her lawyer do it-they’d have to pay Edi for the use. 😀
            j/k 😉

          • WestCoastFeed

            Wouldn’t that be splendid? Oh, for cameras in the courtroom when the dancing chimps stomp grapes in the Fraudulini commercial!!!!

          • twifan2

            ONE MORE TIME!!! 🙂
            *donations gladly accepted*

          • Awww….LOVE the dancing chimps!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Thank you!!! Yes, Public derision!!!!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Never gets old!!!!! Some art is so timeless, and this is one of those!!!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Who would get the money? It has to go somewhere!!!! I’m lost, as usual!!!!

          • twifan2

            On their way! 🙂

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          I love that you referenced my man Shakespeare on this!!!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            He is my guy!!!! And oh, how the lawyers love to be called wrong!!!!!! They will spend all the time in the world on these suits!!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I know–they will. So awesome that you love Shakespeare. I’m a big fan.

        • Fascinating trip indeed! As usual, I’ll have the wine on chill….you supply the popcorn! Let’s sit back and watch the shit hit the fan.

          • twifan2

            Let’s all knock a few back! 🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Rum balls too!!!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Oh YES! Bring on the rum balls!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            So festive!!!!!!! Very appropriate for this time of year too!!

          • twifan2

            I call the red ones! 🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Remember Alec Baldwin and his “balls” speach??? I laughed and laughed!!!!!!

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Schweddy BALLS!
            The best!!!!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            That’s it!!!!!! Priceless!!!!

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            One of my all time faves! I almost pissed myself when they did it the first time. Hilariously funny!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Indeed! I wish I had one now! =)

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Her delusion knows absolutely no bounds. Her picture should be featured next to “narcissist” in the encyclopedia.

      • Tre’s Going to Prison

        Oh…I think I’d see her picture next to “dumb cluck” too!

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    I really hope this bitch isn’t rewarded by anything other than having a thorough cavity search before entering prison, and having a cough and squat after every visit while IN prison, and then after, having a meeting with her parole officer once a week and having to submit urine tests.

    She’s not a star–she’s not someone that anyone with VALUES would want to support as a (cough cough) “celebrity” (using that word VERY loosely). She’s a common criminal–a thug, a terrible person and horrid mother.

    Just go to jail and learn some humility you ape-faced POS. And if Bravo does give her a contract, I swear to God I will stop watching the 2 – 3 shows I still DVR.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Agree, agree!!!! But you know Bravo…….anything for a dime!!!

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I think they are really barking up the wrong tree on this one, NAWS. MOST fans are truly upset with her. I doubt very many would support this. Only her equally criminal “fambly.”

    • Marsbars09

      Hi 4th! Thank you for stating Tre is not a “star”. She’s nothing but a common, lowlife criminal and should be treated as such.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Thank you Mars! And it’s true. These “television personalities” are NOT stars and WE are not “fans”– we are viewers. The reason so many people watched the interview is because we wanted to see if she would take responsibility. That interview (imo) KILLED her career forever.

        No one likes an entitled criminal chimp.

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    What’s that smell? Oh yes, it’s the smell of our collective VOMIT at the very thought of this happening.

    • Tre’s Going to Prison

      Heels,
      Do you know who Mr. Creosote is? I know that Tiger does.
      Anyway, he’s they REAL Big Guy from the Monty Pyton movie “The Meaning of Life”, who explodes at the restaurant. The maître’d asks him how he feels and he says he feels “Bettah. Bettah get a bucket, I’m gonna Throw UP!” And boy does he.
      Now THAT’S a Collective Vomit. Hewh!

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        LOL!!! I saw that movie years ago–and I totally forgot about that.

  • Marsbars09

    Tre shouldn’t be rewarded with sh*t! She’s a CONVICTED FELON for christsakes! In the real world felons don’t get perks & breaks. People are accommodating these crooks like they walk on water and I don’t get it.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Her day in the sun is over. She’s no longer famous. She’s INFAMOUS. She’s a notorious common criminal and really, there’s nothing sexy about that.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        I love the term you use “collective VOMIT” !!!!! So true!!!!

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Thank you. I thought it was spiffy too! 🙂

    • v blackwell

      Bingo, Mars! It’s ludicrous.

  • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

    Hey Tre in less than a month the ONLY show you’re gonna get is this one!

    http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/173/e/7/bbw_softbody_test_wip_by_grico316-d7njt5i.gif

    & as a bonus you know what Tre?

    Big Bertha & her girls are real, real happy to hear what a “hustler” you are.
    That devotion & great work-ethic, (cough-cough), is sure gonna pay off big time… for Bertha!

    (Apologies in advance if the gif offends anyone.)

    • noarguingwithstupid

      OMG!!!!!!! What a great gift!!!!!!! I love it!!!!

    • Chloe

      O.M.G. I’m speechless. This is hilarious.

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        Thanks Hon. Tre will have her own show every night. Exactly what she wished for Chloe! LOL! & she gets to be the star. Center of attention. Just like she wanted. Like they say be careful what you wish for, you just might get it!

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Is this a preview of Kim Kardashian’s in another year? I am morbidly fascinated by those butt cheeks. WOW.

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        So was I, 4th. LOL! I hesitated to post them. Didn’t want anyone to stroke out or have a seizure! LMFAO!

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Ha! I’m so twisted that I like it! (I know it’s wrong but I can’t help it!!!).

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Whats truly twisted is that my mind comes up with this chit & I can find it on the internet. Which means there are others like me out there!
            *Insert scary “Twilight Zone” music here!*
            Do-do-do-do. Do-do-do-do!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            LOL!!! These are twisted times, Tiger–TWISTED, I tell you!

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            At least I know I’m in good company! (>‿◠)✌

            Here at AATT, we all are–at least we have that! Lovin the artwork btw.

            Inmates running the Asylum is always the best! The most fun!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            LOL!!! that’s very true!!

      • v blackwell

        Oh dear, just saw your post, 4t.

    • v blackwell

      No apologies should be required, Tigerlily. Why would Kim K “breaking the internet” be offensive the 2nd time around?

  • colleen

    Congratulations on yet another scoop, AATT. Tre &Zen (Dumb &Dumber) must have thrown the idea of a cooking show at least 3 times during the Reunion. They’re dying to be stars.
    Does money she makes post sentence, go to the Feds?

    • Nene robs kids

      Teresa not only owes the Feds she owes the creditors 13.4 million dollars

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Plus don’t forget the IRS. They owe them tons too–and they are like a little dog biting at your ankle–they don’t let go!

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

          The IRS don’t play. They will dig yo azz up, your dead relatives up & pry the jewelry from your cold dead bodies to get their money!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            QFT! No kidding. They will be looking down her throat and up her ass at the same time with very high watt flashlights. Whatever these two scumbags are hiding–the IRS will find it–believe that.

          • Pinky Pie

            When? How have they gotten this far in that house with those cars, all on stolen money. And, Teresa is still spending like a lunatic. I hope the government comes back with more charges, and she stays in prison for 30 years.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Unfortunately, they are very thorough in their investigations. They really do dot all i’s and cross all t’s. They will be coming after them but their finances are in such a freaking mess–that I’m sure it will take them at least a year to figure it all out. But they should have it all figured out (and there really could be more fines and charges that follow, depending on what they learn from their investigation) such as hiding money in off-shore accounts (and not doing it in a smart way). I really do believe that they have MANY more problems to come. They had a 10 year scam going–that takes a while to investigate.

          • Pinky Pie

            I’m sure you’re right. But, I would like to see Teresa try to live like a normal person. Teresa’s behavior is sickening.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Oh me too, Pinky! I’d like to see her at Mickey Dee’s asking Danielle Staub “would you like fries with that?” Priceless!

          • Pinky Pie

            Yes! That’s what I would like too. How about if she has enough money to buy a burger off the dollar menu!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Oh that would be sheer awesomeness. But I’d rather see her SELLING the dollar menu burger–lol. 🙂

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Don’t forget Pinky. There’s a 7% sales tax on prepared foods in NJ. Hope she saved that penny!

        • Nene robs kids

          Yes them too the list is so long!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            And I think it’s going to continue getting longer. Like all those Hurricane Sandy victims they ripped off. They’ll be coming after them too (thank Goodness!). I hate to say—every time I see your S/N I crack up!!

    • WestCoastFeed

      10% of her wages will be going to a laundry supply company until she has paid them the $300+K she owes them.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        And more cases will follow….

  • italiano bambino

    Imagine the hours of tapping? Millions of dollars waste…. not worth it. Tre packed that fugly leopard clothes of yours that you call exquisite. and go to jail

    • twifan2

      BAM!!! Hi Hi! 🙂
      Finally caught up with you…maybe?! :/

      • italiano bambino

        Hi babe how you been

        • twifan2

          Doing ok today. Next week another horror time tho. 🙁
          Hope you doing good! 🙂

          • italiano bambino

            Im doing good babe just busy at work. Glad to hear from you. I ask seuss the other day

          • twifan2

            I think I hit you up on Twit-I think…I don’t remember. 😀
            Long days & nites—working! 🙁

          • italiano bambino

            I forgot my Twitter password I need to reset it.

  • Pinky Pie

    I actually hope that soon all networks will flat out tell Teresa Giudice she is unemployable. I hope all networks realize we don’t want to see this ugly on the inside and outside woman. Her face hurts my eyes. Her screechy voice hurts my ears. And, listening to her try to pronounce words is mind numbingly boring.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      I so hope so too.

    • italiano bambino

      Some fans think her way of saying things is “cute” trying to hold my laugh

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        I agree Bam, if she were 4, not 42.

        • italiano bambino

          Teresa giudice is one con artists who try to play the audience but fail to fool the IRS.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Exactly Bam. Well said.

          • v blackwell

            Proving, italiano, you can fool some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, the IRS …. You’re the fool if you ever think about it!

      • Pinky Pie

        I’m sure they do. But, I think those fans need to be checked to see if they are emotionally stable.

        • italiano bambino

          Lol for sure

    • Addie2U

      Teresa can barely utter a coherent sentence — how many hours long was this proposed show going to be?!!

      • Pinky Pie

        Don’t you think she could last 2 seconds before we could hear each other change the Chanel. Instead of “clink, clink,” it will be click, click. We’re all done with her!

  • noarguingwithstupid

    On the last interview I was weirded out by her fascination of finding a penny in her pocket. What does she think about??????

    • Pinky Pie

      Omg! I was laughing at that. I mean, Teresa sounded like a 4 year old that found a used piece of gum. Strange woman.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Glad to know that I wasn’t the only one who found it soooooooooooooooo odd!!!!

          Do you think she was that drugged up or just that mentally challenged? I mean the way that happened, Teresa wasn’t going to sit and listen to her relatives video and discuss it, but “oh, a penny!” It was weird. Especially from a woman who scammed millions out of banks.

            It was Teresa’s child like way to deflect the conversation. I’ve noticed several instances where she seems to revert to a little girl when things don’t go her way. Or she’s trying to get her way.

            Maybe you have hit on it!!!! I never thought about her taking drugs to “calm” down, but maybe that is the answer!!!!

      Hmmm, good question Naws. Lets take a look inside.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Would that involve cutting into her ape brain????? I doubt there is much there except maybe some pennys!!!!

          Don’t think they make a blade strong enough to get through her neanderthal, cro magnon skull. Heck, it’s the only thing stronger than a diamond cutting blade & a water laser! LOL!

        Well I’ll be damned, Tigerlily, and impressed too! You’re way too modest. You don’t even mention the real clout you have, yet you definitely have enough leverage to gain access to Tre’s brain x rays!!! Most of us didn’t even know she had one (and I DON’T mean ‘x ray’).

      She’s so dumb she probably thinks it’s a sign from Jesus telling her she won’t really have to go to jail.

      These days, she’s hanging on to anything!!

    They don’t know how haggard or if she gains weight etc. etc. she will be in. Also they got her over the barrel, they give her the money they want not what she wants.
