Teresa who? Bravo producers have decided that just because their favorite felon is sitting in prison, there is trashy Jersey drama to be had, and “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” MUST go on. The reality cameras are ready to roll without Teresa Giudice, and her sister in law co-star Melissa Gorga is cashing in!
Radar Online is reporting that Melissa has landed a raise, and will earn $750k for the upcoming season of the show, the same figure as her stuck in the slammer sister-in-law earned last season.
“Melissa has been given a raise in her new contract,” a source close to the situation told Radar. “Her new salary now matches Teresa’s old one. Melissa has always been highly paid but now she’s getting the same amount of money that Teresa used to get.”
There has been much speculation about the future of the franchise, but apparently the absence of that crazy lady who flipped the table is proving to be no biggie.
“They want the franchise to continue no matter what now,” the source explained.
Teresa’s loss is Melissa’s gain! Sorrryyy Teresa!!
