Teresa Giudice Desperate For Book Deal of Prison Diary

It’s time for Felon Update with Teresa Giudice, star of “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” who is completing her third month in jail. Easter will be Teresa’s first real holiday without Joe and the girls.

READ: Melissa Gorga Has Not Visited Teresa Giudice In Prison & Says She Took The High Road With Teresa!

No word if Danbury will hold an egg hunt, but in the meantime, RadarOnline is reporting that Teresa is taking matters into her own hands since Joe has proven himself useless in the honest wage earning department. An insider revealed that even though Teresa is locked up,

“it’s not stopping her from asking lawyers to help secure a book deal. The family is broke and has absolutely no money coming in….and there is nothing in a savings or checking account. Joe still hasn’t gotten a job, and isn’t even looking.”

As reported earlier that Teresa has been keeping a notebook close to her at all times and when she isn’t holding it, she locks it away.

“Teresa thinks she can land an advance from a publishing company.” The source confirmed, “She has been keeping a meticulous journal about her experiences in prison.”

So this would essentially be another “Orange is the New Black” however, in that memoir, author Piper Kerman not only wrote the book herself, she learned from her experiences and is now an advocate for justice reform. Time will tell if Teresa will be able to secure a book deal, write the book herself, and take accountability for her actions. Until then, the insider says,

“The family is being financially supported by Teresa’s parents, and Joe’s mom.”

Sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, finances are doing just fine. She has scored a huge pay increase for her upcoming season of RHONJ. Teresa’s brown eyes must be turning green when she learned that Melissa will be paid $750,000 – a salary that Teresa used to make!

    Teresa who???

    • Right! Thank you!!

      • Babson_Chick

        any time lol

  • twifan2

    OH PULLEEZ!
    What can she say in her book that we’d be interested in?
    IF she wrote about how she got shanked in prison, then maybe…

    • Babson_Chick

      Hey GF how have you been. Haven’t been on here much – am trying to get yard work done before it gets to hot.

      • twifan2

        Babs!!! 🙂
        Been ok. Just dealing with ‘stuff’ & a low supply of ‘beverages’. 🙁
        Getting Spring planting done? We just had some snow Saturday, so early planting is out for a couple weeks here. 🙂

        • Babson_Chick

          yes planting some mini roses and other flowers and doing lots of trimming – we’re having our last cool weather I’m thinking. Cheers to ya!!

  • Sophia Z.

    I have absolutely no sympathy for Teresa or her husband, Joe. She does not deserve a book deal and even if she got one, just how many people would be interested enough to buy the book? Let her and Joe do their time. Then go out and find work on their own. They both need to know how the rest of us have to do it and pay our taxes. And as far as Melissa goes, she isn’t exactly innocent on ‘taking the higher road’. She is as manipulative as Teresa if not more.

    • twifan2

      I want to see if Bravo will ‘buy’ her way onto the Best Seller List now! :/
      Juicy probably figures he’s going to prison soon, so why even bother to hold down a ‘real’ job. Other than his fambly, who would hire a felon who has thumbed his nose at the U.S.?

      • Sophia Z.

        I hope that Bravo cannot help her in any way now. She should be on her own as she needs to learn a lesson. I know she is doing her time but in all honesty in my opinion, people like this rarely learn their lesson unless they hit really hard times and that means in the wallet.

        I do agree with you, why get a job now when he has impending prison time coming up but it never hurts to do day labor or whatever to help pass the time.

        They want to act like mafia, send them to Italy so they can be in good company.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      PREACH!

  • WestCoastFeed

    ROL’s sister rag, Star Magazine, says Teresa has her lawyer working on getting her out of her Bravo contract and that she has been talking to Nene frequently about that. Then once her contract is fixed she wants to file for divorce.

    • twifan2

      😀
      Tre’s lawyer is going up against GE?! This I have to see! 🙂

      • WestCoastFeed

        It’s just possible that Bravo doesn’t want her anymore

        • twifan2

          I think Bravo will squeeze whatever they can from her for another 2 years, then cut her loose.

        • Tre is so stupid. She fails to realize no one wants her anymore. Such a dumb narcissist with scam artist all around her.

          • twifan2

            Oh ‘they’ want her. For what they can earn off her.
            Then when she doesn’t bring in the big $$$, they’ll cut her loose.
            What goes around, comes around-Tre!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Bravo’s new exec, Frances (something or other) talked about Bravo’s affluent, educated audience in the recent news release. If they want an educated audience, they won’t find many among the Teresa fans.

          • twifan2

            Does finding Waldo count as being edjamacted? o.0

          • Sophia Z.

            “Textes” is not a recognized word in the English Dictionary.

      • Although GE no longer owns NBC Universal, NBC is a conglomerate and not to be messed with. They don’t have a shot in hell.

        • twifan2

          They still own some shares. They didn’t sell it all completely. Smart move on their part.

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      Teresa lives for the fame. She won’t give up the show voluntarily.

      • Babson_Chick

        That’s what I’m thinking – cause in her little mind she’s the whole show

  • MorningYawn

    I look at her in these pics and think “thank God she’s not on my tv anymore.”

    • Amen! Hallelujah!

      • red robin

        Hey Doc, it’s me Fritz. Different computer, different name, same old Fritz.

        How are you buddy?

        • Hey love! So sorry. I just saw your comment to me. I’m well, thanks. Super busy and super tired but that’s the life of a working mom. How the heck are ya, buddy?

  • WestCoastFeed

    Bravo Upfronts says Manzod with Children has been renewed. Caroline just tweeted a day or two ago that she sent out invites to Lauren’s bridal shower. So filming for that must be underway or soon to begin.

    • Babson_Chick

      and what about a new spin off with Da Moose and Kim Z???

      • WestCoastFeed

        Yes, where did I read that one? That one and the Tucker’s spin-off? Two different press releases?

        • Babson_Chick

          Nene announced on twitter

    • DLister

      Who the hell would want to waste precious minutes watching this offal? And if so, do we get to see when Lauren acts like a praying mantis and bites Vito’s head fully off during the wedding night? Losers.

  • red robin

    Here is my prediction. Teresa will find some 4 tier publishing company to put her book out. It will bomb. While there is interest in seeing Teresa get her comeupings, there is little interest to reward her with hard earned money. Look at her products dying by the day. Bravo is done with her and she knows it. Here shelf life has reached the end of the line.
    As for melissa, there was no big pay day, there is NO big payday for any of these reality hounds. Just saw lawyer Lisa Bloom on an interview and she has repped many reality stars and she confirmed what I always knew, these people do not get paid big money, it’s pennies. That is why they have to hawk everything under the sun while going bankrupt to keep up. Until Bravo confirms these $600k salaries, I will believe Ms.. Bloom.

    • MindStretch

      Red Robin – Thanks for that info….Girl, its the ILLUSION of fame/celebrity/social status, etc. Its so freaking not worth it

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    By the time she’s out, no one will care anymore! Well, maybe that leopard idiot on twitter. So over for this uneducated low class thieving ape! Will some other inmate just beat the living crap out of her already? That’s THE story I want to hear.

    ps – I changed my name and avi, I was She Stinks!

    • TartLemon

      What would Teresa’s storyline be? Everybody knows and it’s been proven every thing Teresa tried to pass off as an affluent lifestyle was STOLEN.

    • Hey buddy. Thanks for letting us know. You know I love your comments!

  • TartLemon

    Everytime I read Teresa keeps her diary “locked away”, I laugh. Teresa is in PRISON. What part of that word does she still not get? They can go into her ‘personal’ space anytime they want. There is no such thing as private property exempt from the prison’s reach.

    • cait

      The warders can’t examine your legal papers, so inmates hide their private papers amongst these ! Then pass them off to their attorney.

    • Bad Barbie

      They still have lockers that are secure. The wardens have access with a master key but having a journal is not illegal.

  • Marsbars09

    There’s no way Tre is coping well in prison knowing she won’t be with her girls on Easter AND the family is destitute. I feel bad for the girls and Tre’s parents, who probably don’t have two nickels to rub together themselves.
    I wonder how the Giudice girls are faring without their extra-curricular activities?

    • Imstillstanding666

      Yep, gia was missing from the kids choice awards this year

  • TartLemon

    What happened to Teresa’s lawsuit against her attorneys?

    • WestCoastFeed

      Stacy, AATT’s legal blogger, is keeping up on that one. She says they are clearing up some procedural matters before anything of substance will happen. She will keep us posted when something happens. Watch this space.

      • twifan2

        ‘procedural matters’??? :/

        • WestCoastFeed

          Something about “jurisdiction” and one other legal term I have no clue what it means. It’s some kind of maneuvering until the case really gets going. James Kridel has not issued his official response yet.

          • TartLemon

            One more thing Teresa still doesn’t get yet. If her lawyers had not fought for her, Teresa/Joe would be looking at DECADES behind bars.

          • MindStretch

            Tart – Question…How will T and Joe PAY for these lawyers if they have zero $ (allegedly)?

          • Rochelle Barozzi

            That is what I have been asking too.

          • WestCoastFeed

            One of the gossip blog sites claimed that Teresa’s brother, Joey, is paying for her most recent lawyer. He’s the one who drove her to Danbury.

          • twifan2

            Dang! That is so wrong.
            Joey didn’t take her to Danbury. The pics that day show that.
            I seriously doubt, Joey is paying for her lawyer. :/

          • WestCoastFeed

            Sorry about the pronoun confusion. The lawyer drove her to Danbury. I wasn’t paying enough attention to my antecedent. But Joey may be paying his fees. He is the lawyer who negotiated the Gorga Bravo contract.

          • twifan2

            😀
            You had me going there, WCF!

          • Rochelle Barozzi

            OK thank you!

          • chacha1

            They will go and dig up some more money in the chicken coop where the old man died burying it

          • MindStretch

            Oh sh!t…LolLol….that was hilarious..

          • twifan2

            I wonder what that ‘maneuvering’ entails? :/

          • WestCoastFeed

            Next time Stacy is here we’ll have to ask her.

          • twifan2

            🙂
            I’m hoping that doesn’t void Mr. Kridel’s counter-suit against Tre.
            Or her lawyer saying that he didn’t file before the deadline. >(

  • DLister

    Now there is in this post the real truth that all these sources are bullshit — “Teresa is keeping a meticulous journal.” Apewoman can’t even WRITE a coherent sentence beyond, “See Spot run.”

  • Sophia Z.

    Karma in this case: The IRS will be watching both Teresa and Joe for the remainder of their lives. That bites.

    • twifan2

      & their kids’ incomes also!

      • Sophia Z.

        I don’t wish anything bad on the kids but the odds are stacked against them as they will probably turn out to be white collar criminals also.

    • I would surmise all of her Bravo paycheck is being seized by the Feds. The house is in foreclosure and her marriage is falling apart.

      • MindStretch

        Girl, OMG…could you imagine?!? her situation is F’ed up. Seriously, it wasn’t worth it…at all. Jesus!!!!

        • Not at all. Crime never pays and she’s seeing it now.

      • Sophia Z.

        It does make sense. I don’t wish bad on anyone but the money part, heck yeah, they need to pay up. If I have to, so do they! 😉

  • italiano bambino

    Can you imagine that BOOK? I can only see the tre huggers buying that shit

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    Locked away? You can’t have locks in jail.

    • twifan2
      • Rochelle Barozzi

        LOLOL!

      • Ewwww….that looks like Tre and Joe’s cock ring!

    • Bad Barbie

      Actually, they have lockers that are locked.

      • MidwestMiddie

        True but I’ll bet prison officials have the keys to open those lockers.
        Nothing is ever private for prisoners ………. well, except their time
        spent with their lawyers.

  • MindStretch

    This is enough to cause a damn nervous breakdown!!! O-M-G to the fullest.. Cheating husband Joe, no income, in PRISON, no indulgence, children being (-) hurt, family deaths, lawsuits up the wazoo, blah blah blah…this situation is F’ing horrific. What makes this horrific is that TERESA DID THIS TO HEFSELF….umph umph shaking head like my grandmother.

    • chacha1

      you reap what you sow

  • MindStretch

    Easter is approaching… Can any of you ladies bake BC T needs to eat some HUMBLE PIE.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    What publisher in their right mind would want to sign a deal with Lying Teresa Giudice? There will be absolutely nothing in her book other than the lies she has repeated ad nauseum already on the show. This woman has spent the last few years shutting everyone up, covering up, spinning lies. The only time she wants to tell the “truth” is when it involves someone else’s misfortune or rumors and is nothing to do with her. I think they should pay Joe Mastropole and a few of her creditors for a book deal. That would be more interesting. In fact I think I would prefer read Joe Giudice’s account of what happened when he hasn’t got her in his ear telling him what he can and can’t say.

    • Nancy Krystofik

      Every day you can watch some sort of “lock up” extended stay, women in prison, cops, even Dog the bounty hunter! Who cares about her account of things when we can watch and see what goes on anytime we want? The only one I haven’t seen is “Orange is the new black,”I think I’ll check it out soon.

    • Shy-ra

      Yes!! I totally agree with your post, all of it! I would LOVE to read Joe Mastropole’s book!

      • chacha1

        Is he writing a book?

        • Shy-ra

          Nah – just wishful thinking! Such a great idea though – and would totally piss off control freak TreApe – haha!! Score all the way around

    • chacha1

      she sure shut Jailbird Joe down when they were being interviewed on WWHL and Joe said “they had the $200,000 to pay the court but it went …….. and then she glared at him and said be quiet Joe and he said “whatever”

  • MidwestMiddie

    Jesse Jackson, Jr. has just been released from prison after serving a 30 month sentence for
    misusing campaign funds totaling $750,000.
    His wife began her prison sentence 30 days after he did and that extra time
    at home was to help her organize the care for their children.

    The Giudices should be sending their Judge Thank You Notes for treating them with
    such leniency.

    • chacha1

      ITA

    • Linda Blansky

      Maybe they should thank their parents for being immigrants whose allegiance is to themselves not their host country.

  • Just a jersey girl
    • WestCoastFeed

      I saw that patch article yesterday, too. But I dismissed it since it was pretty much a repeat of the story that was wrong two weeks ago. I think he really is in court today.

      • Just a jersey girl

        No NJ advanced media group would be there if the had court today, and it would have hit the news last night if there was a sentencing.

        • WestCoastFeed

          One of the commenters on that Patch article said that the case was scheduled for 9 a.m. this morning at the Passaic County courthouse. I’ll wait to see if any other news shows up.

        • WestCoastFeed

          There has been an update from NJ dot com. The hearing is now set for Thursday at 2 p.m. Their cited source was Joe’s lawyer, Miles Feinstein.

  • Bad Barbie

    Hmmm… and you know damn well fans and haters will read it. I didn’t say “buy” though. There is always pirate bay. We are hypocrites if we say that ‘famous’ criminals can;t come out and make millions again. It’s happened too many times to say different. This is the USA, were your kids educators are living in almost poverty and you have people who did time running corporations and being “coaches”. LOL

  • chacha1

    I never bought any of her bogus cookbooks and I will never spend a dime on her future books

  • WestCoastFeed

    One of the Teresa fan pages has spoken with Pete & Sheila who visited Teresa this weekend. Of course, they reported that Teresa looks good and is doing well. However I see no mention of whether Joe visited this weekend. Or the girls.

    • It’s sad that Tre is further fueling the feud by purposely isolating Melissa and Joey from seeing her. She’s an evil, vindictive woman.
