Now that Teresa Giudice is officially locked up and the citizens of New Jersey can sleep at night knowing another criminal is off the street, rumors are swirling about the reality “star.”

The newest one is Bravo offered “Real Housewives of New Jersey” felon, Teresa Giudice, a lucrative deal to grant them permission to film her final days before entering prison.

A source tells TMZ that Teresa was offered upwards of $50,000 but she declined the offer. The source claims, Teresa feels the filming could have potentially angered prison officials and affect any potential early release. Additionally, the source added, Teresa didn’t want to exploit her family during a difficult time.

This is ironic since Teresa allowed the Bravo cameras to roll during her legal drama even stooping as low as filming her children’s sorrow over her going to prison.

Do you believe Teresa declined Bravo’s offer to film her final days of freedom?

    Yes I do. Remember a lot of the filming was done prior to her acceptance of the plea deal. Also she had a contractual obligation to interview with Andy after the sentence was carried. This is a good sign to me.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Yes, I believe her. I have heard he say that she is “done” with Bravo. And I think that any mother would prefer these last few hours with her family to be private. Even Teresa has to have a limit to her greed. In this case I think she really did put her family first.

  • Lucy94

    Here’s my guess. Bravo offered her $50K to film; she wanted $500K and Bravo told her to go pound sand.

    • THANK YOU! Based on Teresa’s despicable morals, it’s the only logical deduction (IMO).

    • TartLemon

      Yeah, I just posed the same thing before reading your post.

    • RonnieIsBack

      or license plates..

  • MorningYawn

    Do you think she “refused” because she didn’t want her empty home filmed, a Christmas with no presents, or having to admit to her kids she was going to jail. If this was offered after the raid, no way she’d want video proof that her stuff was taken. It always comes back to her ego.

    • I hadn’t thought about that factor. Very plausible conclusion.

      • MorningYawn

        I guess it depends on the timing of the “aledged” offer

  • TartLemon

    IMO, Teresa wanted more. Bravo declined.

  • cait

    Just getting Ser.6, and listened to Dim MarcSleazy criticising my new BFF’s the Guidices for their criminal activities ! Wasn’t he the guy who masterminded a diabolical plan to distribute dodgy cancer drugs, then got his ass out of the wringer by grassing up everyone else ! What a SLIME BALL !

    • WestCoastFeed

      Now, cait. he claims he wasn’t the mastermind. However he did profit from the scam. And, just wait, he is a bigger slime ball than you see so far.

      • You also stated NUMEROUS times he wasn’t the mastermind. LOL!

        • WestCoastFeed

          No what I said was that the judge didn’t find that he had been PROVEN to be the mastermind.

          • cait

            And the SLIME BALL got a big pay out for his criminal associations !

      • cait

        How much bigger slime can he be ? Not enough room in this world ? AND of course he’s working closely with the Attorney General on the Guidice case !

  • TartLemon

    Andy Cohen used to be obsessed with G tothe IA, showing her ridiculous foray into modeling. He never mentions her now. It was also posted a while back that Teresa quit mentioning Bravo in tweets.

    I think Teresa thought Bravo was going buy that inane 3KT series. Like she deserved it or something.

    • Tart. You’re so right. I sense Teresa feels Bravo let her down in some way. We all know she blames them for her demise, bringing her family on her show. I bet she did try to pitch Gia’s show to Bravo and was turned down flat.

    • Ben_Dover

      Interesting. Though I won’t be shocked if it’s picked up one of the networks that caters to the lowest common denominator.

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    I don’t believe it at all. Teresa would jump through hoops of fire if she thought there was a nickel on the other side. What is far more likely is that SHE went to Bravo and begged them for 50,000 to fund another trampy video of Gia and 3kt and Bravo told her “Buzz off, felon-forehead.”
    That’s what really happened. Your gigs are up Tre-ape. You are a joke–people aren’t laughing with you, they are laughing AT you. You are not admired, respected, liked, or wanted–right now you are just another piece of convicted felon trash who is just where she belongs.

    • RonnieIsBack

      You may have a point..unless Gia was begging her not to do it. I think that his the only way she would decline.

    • Hahahaha @ “buzz off felon forehead” *dead*

      Something tells me she won’t be returning to reality TV and it’s not by her choice.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I do believe you’re right. For one thing, I am almost positive she has more time coming. She won’t be out of the slammer long enough to film anything!

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    Interesting, now after reading all the comments of everyone–it seems like the consensus is that Teresa went to Bravo, not the other way around. I think Bravo is done with Teresa. It appears that everyone who has anything to do with her hates her guts soon after.

    • I couldn’t agree more. I still believe she’s the reason Andy was demoted, basically fired.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Interesting! There’s certainly no love lost between Teresa and Andy. You can see that in the way Andy talks about her these days.

        • She messed up big time with Bravo when she dragged the show into her legal drama, claiming scenes were fake and she did them at the direction of production.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Oh you are sooooo right. And we don’t even know if Bravo might have their own legal repercussions because of that. We really don’t know-but Bravo truly showed their sleaze when they wouldn’t kick Teresa to the curb when she pled guilty. Any other network would have–heck, people have been fired for even saying the wrong thing, let alone ripping off 13 million!

  • italiano bambino

    Coming from the woman who EXPOSED her entire faux lifestyle to viewers to see and drag her children to her criminal career. Really this woman BELIEVES her own Bullshit. Didn’t wanna show her life during hard times. —-my ass

    • RonnieIsBack

      Hey Bam
      We think alike. this bish films EVERYTHING…I was surprised also…she is pissed…

      • italiano bambino

        She got mad bravo didn’t offer her shit

    • BOOM! Tell it.

      • italiano bambino

        Like this women for reals?

  • RonnieIsBack

    hehe heheh Tre didn’t want them filiming her going…away…asunder…that was a dis to Andy pants trust lol

  • Anne Green

    I agree with a lot of the postesr who believe that Teresa approached Bravo. I used to get upset at Bravo’s appearance of condoning her criminal behavior. It seems to me now that they used their “cash cow” (and rightfully so) for ratings gold during her indictment, plea deal, sentencing and interview. What does she have to offer Bravo now? Or in a year? These people who believe that she is going to come back to TV better than ever….please tell me what she has to offer. Any other network would cut their own throat if they ever took her on. I think her goose is cook. There might be some coverage and hoopla when she does get released but in a couple of days it will pass…..it always does.

    • WestCoastFeed

      If she could bring herself to really making an effort to redeem herself, she might have an audience for a “come back story.” She would have to fully admit her guilt, apologize to those she harmed and then, buckle down and work hard at paying back all those people she stole from. Is she capable of that? I think that is the question that remains to be answered.

      • italiano bambino

        Wcf she apologize to the FANS not the people they screwed that’s very telling. Highly doubt it at this point.

        • WestCoastFeed

          She has 15 months to reflect on her past actions. Let’s see if time makes a change.

          • italiano bambino

            You have fate wcf. That woman has a burn switch in the head that’s is not processing things correctly. Jmo

          • WestCoastFeed

            I fear you are right. But I hope that she can change.

          • Ben_Dover

            13. They cut her sentence before she’d served 48 hours!

      • I agree with this but doubt she would ever humble herself to change.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I think it’s too late for that. That moment has come and gone where she could have done that.

      • Anne Green

        You’re right West….but for me the time to have done that was the past 3 months and was there was zero attempt at redemption. All she did was give me reason to forget about her….we will……we all will….. until the release date comes. What place will everyone be in their lives at that point…she will just fade. Unless, of course, there are additional charges….lol

    • italiano bambino

      Her 15 mins are Done. No one is going to waste money and time on her anymore

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        ITA.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      She has nothing to offer, Anne. The majority of viewers cannot stand Teresa. Her fanbase is vocal but they are very small. On any article, the comments are 95% negative. If she had humbled down, acted very remorseful and started paying her creditors as soon as the cash started flowing in, she might have written a different destiny for herself. But not now.

      • Anne Green

        ITA

      • TJ Marcus

        Standing Ovation!!!!!!

    • misstc

      Only thing I’d want to hear is how awful it was being there. She still got off easy.

      • Anne Green

        She so did get off easy. Her loss of freedom and control does give me some satisfaction because that has got to be killing her.

    • Ben_Dover

      Regardless of whether people are Tre Huggers or not, I think Clap Hands! is banking on viewers who will tune in to see the train wreck. I’m guilty of watching Tre and Juicy’s interview with AC after the sentencing. Granted, I FF’d through Part 2. With the cash being thrown at them, I bet Clap Hands! is banking on viewer curiosity. Here’s hoping no one tunes in to help further the profit this criminal family makes unless the earnings are fully garnished and all valuables are hauled away by the IRS.

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    Imho. The only reason this did NOT happen is because the price wasn’t right. They didn’t offer enough $$$ as far as she was concerned.

    • misstc

      Or that money would be taken away to pay off the debtors & she wanted cash to stuff a mattress with the other money they’re hiding.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Just read that they took off another $500,000 on the price of their house. Now it’s down to just $2.99 mil. LMFAO @ $2.99 mil. What a joke!

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      I agree. She probably demanded 100k

      • Atomicbetty1000

        I’ll bet it was higher than 100k.

  • Anne Green

    Her surrender is going to be the beginning of their forced down-sizing and living within their means for this fambly. We likely won’t hear much about it but if we do, the excuse will be no more big lavished birthday parties for the girls – Teresa won’t be here to enjoy it with us. No more huge parties at the Jersey Shore – Teresa won’t be here to enjoy it with us and on, and on.
    You’ll never hear “we’re poor, we can’t afford it”.

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      She can’t downsize. Who will give them a mortgage? Jim?

      • Atomicbetty1000

        Free room in someone’s garage? Theresa is counting on being a big, big, star when she gets out of the pen. I hope not.

      • TJ Marcus

        Living at the YMCA

  • WestCoastFeed

    They dropped the price on the mansion by $500K. Another $500K and it will come close to being priced right. When it sells will they move into the apartment over the pizzeria? Joe wont have to drive to get to work. He’ll just have to find someone to drive the kids around.

    • Anne Green

      Is the pizzeria and apartment a separate building from the one where he tried to kill the tenants?

      • WestCoastFeed

        No, it’s the same building.

        • Anne Green

          Ok…thanks West.

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      Not even close. The house appraised at 1.7. The liens exceed the value. It’s just another Giudice scam. They don’t intend to sell.

      • Atomicbetty1000

        I don’t think they intend to sell, yet, either. I was wondering if putting the house on the market for such an over inflated price was to send a message, but not sell the house. What person, with that kind of money, would buy at that over inflated price.

        • TJ Marcus

          Atomicbetty, remember Brain or Intelligence is not one of Teresa’s strong suits, she wants people to believe she’s doing the right thing. She wasn’t planning on people being smarter than her.

          • Atomicbetty1000

            I had that impression to. I think Theresa believes she has outsmarted everyone. Time will tell whether she does another “term at college.” 🙂

      • Ben_Dover

        Who knows what is real in the house and what is Styrofoam, duct tape, plastic and non-functional.

  • colleen

    I would think Bravo would have exclusive rights to film. Maybe she’s still under contract. Someone posted here earlier Tre Huggers are few and far between. Agree, but think if Bravo used footage of her walking into slammer for next season opener. All the viewers that don’t like Tre might tune in. Personally, I think HW franchise has run its’ course

    • Ben_Dover

      Indeed…they all have. Things only got interesting during the last season of NJ with the introduction of Hurricane Jimmah, calling people on their BS. I’d like to see him unleashed on other HW franchises.

  • I1ST5XS

    PFFFFT! Like Teresa would turn down 50K! LMAO!

    • Atomicbetty1000

      I wondered if it would be legal to turn down a paying job, because she owes so much money.

      • I1ST5XS

        I hope so but don’t know for sure. Probably not. She’s such degenerate scum bag.

  • carefreemama

    I don’t remember seeing any photos of TreFam taken in the minimanz. I know there were pics posted at other homes….Is it just me or were there none taken??? Thanks

    • Atomicbetty1000

      Interesting!

    • Ben_Dover

      Juicy stayed behind to take the children to school. (I guess he got a restricted license?) since Tre went in on a Monday.

  • WTF

    I do not believe Teresa at all. Never have never will!!!!

  • Vince Foster, Jr.
  • Ben_Dover

    Teresa didn’t want to exploit her family?! That’s priceless. This woman will do anything for a buck. She has AC in her pocket. I dread to see what the Clap Hands! network will bring us in terms of documenting as many seconds as possible; tears, hand-wringing, sad music, saying good-bye to leopard print, as Tre preps for her years…I mean months at Camp Cupcake.
