Not happy! Teresa Giudice’s current prison photo cover on US Weekly continues to spark outrage and has even manage to piss off her employer, Bravo. According to Confidenti@l, Bravo is among the joyless.

The site claims, Bravo is bemused at the current US cover because the network worked tirelessly to secure “The Real Housewives of New York” ladies featured on the cover to coincide with the show’s April 7th debut. An insider tells the gossip column,

“Bravo is currently casting the new season and Teresa wants to prove she still sells.” 

According to Confidenti@l, Teresa via her attorney, negotiated the sale of her jailbird flicks from behind the bars of Danbury Federal Prison. It’s business as usual in prison for the Bravolebrity. They also report, Bravo worked for two weeks to secure a cover for “The Real Housewives of New York” to hype the season 7 launch on Tuesday.

“This is a make or break season for the New York franchise,” a second source tells us. “Bethenny’s big return was supposed to get all this media response, but it’s been underwhelming.”

    And her lawyer gave an interview to E Online today. He brought a copy of Us Weekly to prison to show her. She was “extremely happy” with the photo. And wept when she saw the pix of Joe at home with the girls.
    Sounds like more confirmation that her attorney was the one who negotiated the photo sale to Us.

    • twifan2

      Curious as to how her lawyer got to see Tre today? ‘Special privileges’, especially so early in the morning. & today isn’t a regular visiting day. See what I mean.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I don’t think lawyers are restricted to the weekend and holidays visiting hours.

        • twifan2

          They have to get permission from the Admin, for unscheduled visits.
          Doubt that visit was scheduled.

          • WestCoastFeed

            No, he has to know the drill. He’s been practicing law for enough years to know how to visit a client.

          • twifan2

            How many federal imprisoned clients has he had? :/

          • WestCoastFeed

            The only one i’m aware of is Lil Kim because he mentions her in his biography. I didn’t pay attention to what other courts his other clients were in,

          • Bad Barbie

            Lil Kim was in Rikers Island that was not a federal case.

          • WestCoastFeed

            She was guilty of lying to a Federal grand jury and served her time in a Federal prison.

        • twifan2

          I’ll ask Wendy. 🙂

      • Lucy94

        Maybe one of two things. Can’t attorneys see their clients at any time? Different than family and friends. Also, he probably got an advanced copy so I’m pretty sure she saw this issue before it hit the news stands.

        • twifan2

          Oh I’m sure he got an advanced copy, sine he brokered the deal.

        • Bad Barbie

          Yes attorneys are not regular visitors.

      • Babson_Chick

        Damn girl – you’re so on top of everything – am so impressed

        • twifan2

          I thank you. 🙂
          Just remembered seeing that sched because of the weird time Gia posted once when she was visiting her mom there.

          • Babson_Chick

            You’re welcome. Has anyone else visited her? (other than Joe & the girls)

          • twifan2

            Her mother. Maybe more now that Juicy can’t drive.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Pete & Sheila were there last weekend. And had another glowing report on how well she is doing. But they also asked for more fan mail from her adoring fans. If she wants the fan mail, I bet she is missing that ego boost they give her. Plus the ways they reinforce her delusions.

          • twifan2

            WCF, do you know what date Juicy reports to prison? Judge Jacobs wanted him to go in AS SOON AS Tre got out.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Sometime mid-March as I recall.

          • twifan2

            DANG! I wish it were 1,2 days after she got out! 🙁

          • Babson_Chick

            Thanks – am a little behind on stuff. Cheers!!

      • Lawyers can visit everyday. Legal don’t go by the regular visiting hours as family and friends. Also, lawyers don’t visit clients in the standard visiting room. They meet in a private room designed to give them privacy with their client.

        • twifan2

          But doesn’t it have to ok’d first by Admin to see their client?
          The prisoners do have duties to perform, classes to take,…

          • Nope. Legal can visit anytime during the designated legal visiting period…..for example anytime between 8-4pm…M-F.

          • Bad Barbie

            They can be pulled out.

      • Bad Barbie

        Because legal counsels are not “visitors” and don’t follow this schedule.

    • twifan2

      AND:
      ‘While it’s too soon to see what the reaction will be from fellow inmates, Teresa is happy to finally set the record straight.
      “Some of the stuff written about her is so ludicrous,” Leonard Jr. continues. “She’s glad the truth is out there.”

      SHE’S the one selling those stories to the tabs! >(
      Hope her ‘fellow inmates’ show her ‘da luv luv luv’! 🙂

      • WestCoastFeed

        Yep. Are they really desperate for money or is this they way they have always operated?

        • twifan2

          I think it’s both, WCF.
          They are desperate for $$$ & they’ll do whatever it takes for the fast, easy $$$.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I agree. They’ve been working the tabloids for years.

          • twifan2

            Tre learned fast where to get that $$$ quickly. :/
            Any guesses at what the next ‘big’ story will be from her?

          • WestCoastFeed

            I’d guess it would have to be about who is driving the girls to Danbury now.

          • Jennymckitty

            Your right, West. They are going to play this for all its worth.

          • cait

            WHO is the mother of Beaslyl Bessie’s Baby ? Watch out for DNA updates, on Bravo, soon !

      • T’s Martini Lounge

        Yes! Love in the form of a good shanking!

        • twifan2

          Exactly! 🙂
          If her cellmates think she’ll fulfill whatever promises she makes to them, they in for an awakening! 😀
          I wonder what the other prisoners are thinking, feeling about Tre working the prison system to her advantage? Someone’s going to blow pretty soon!

  • twifan2

    I wonder what ‘repercussions’ she’ll get from Bravo now?! :/
    Just bit the hand that feeds her & her pseudo-lifestyle! 🙂

    • Marsbars09

      Twi, I don’t think there’s anything Bravo can do to penalize Tre. She’s already incarcerated.

    • Bad Barbie

      Is she still under contract?

      Bethanny did press tours talking mad shyte about Bravo and how she hated it being on the show and look how quick they brought her back.

  • Babson_Chick

    Well now Bravo helped create this creature – so they need to just deal with it.

    Bethie’s return was underwhelming – I could have told them that!! LOL.

    • twifan2

      Cheers to that, Babson! 🙂

      • Babson_Chick

        Hey there twi – how are you doing today?? We’re having our Easter dinner tomorrow so am taking a break on here.

        • twifan2

          This is the LAST meatless Friday of Lent, so going to an All You Can Eat fish & shrimp buffet tonite! 🙂
          Tomorrow…BURGERS! ANGUS meat burgers! 🙂

          • Babson_Chick

            oh yum – sounds great. Enjoy!!

          • Marsbars09

            Yum!

          • cait

            Check corners of your bag for Furrybutticus !

          • Jennymckitty

            I ate tomato soup. My husband turned on the meat fest that is Diners, Drive Ins and Dives until I had a small fit.

    • T’s Martini Lounge

      You got that right. Nene is another creature they created that needs to go away too!

      • Babson_Chick

        I so agree!! They created them so we don’t want to hear any sob stories.

      • fred

        cartoon creature

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Babs! Bethy’s return just may be as lackluster as Dina’s return to RHNJ.

  • Lucy94

    She was pleased with that cover? She looks HORRIBLE! I’d be curious to see how many copies this issue sells. That will be the telling point. As far as NY goes…meh.

  • Jamie

    Good 4 teresa, even behind bars she beat out RHNY big bad bethenney, poor MS ANDY, checkmate!

  • italiano bambino

    Bravo needs to canned her ASS

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    Bravo needs to publicly humiliate her again, then fire her. Why does Andy like her so much and put up with all this? Although, he does with that moose Nene. He is a spineless wimpy backbone-less baby.

    • italiano bambino

      be having popcorn ready to see that.

    • Marsbars09

      Andy doesn’t like Tre.

      • fred

        neither do I

  • Marsbars09

    I don’t understand. So the RHNY ladies were supposed to garner the cover this week instead of Tre? That’s not Tre’s fault, Bravo should be upset with UsWeekly.

    • I think Bravo wanted to be the first to publish the pics of jailbird Giudice.

      • Bad Barbie

        Or Bravo is pissed that they are not grinding any ratings from such cover because she is not on a show airing at the moment. They never had an issue with all the other covers…

    • Jennymckitty

      Exactly. How would she even know? She just wanted the money.

  • Jennymckitty

    Did they even know they were comeeting with NY for the cover? I think they just took what was available. And Teresa was happy with her photo on the cover? I find that difficult to believe. She seems like she has more pride than to be seen like that. I think she enjoys having her name out there and the publicity, but this….I just can’t help but wonder if the only reason she went along with the photo is because they are desperately strapped for cash. Joe seems reluctant to work for money. If this is the case, I’d be pretty pissed that the world saw me d

    • Of course she’s not happy with the mag cover. Her nose is spread across her face and she looks horrible but you will only get lies from her new attorney. Only glowing reviews about his “happy” client.

      • Jennymckitty

        Do you think she just did it for cash? Do you think she feels she had to humiliate herself because Joe is earning nothing?

        • Absolutely. Had she not needed the cash, she never would have let the public see her in that condition.

          • Marsbars09

            ITA. We all know how vain Tre is. She kept her family waiting for her for an hour in order to do her mop of hair.

          • Yup! That was such a selfish thing to do, btw.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Reportedly the wait was for the picture they used on the cover.

          • I believe she makes them wait often.

          • Marsbars09

            That’s terrible.

          • I don’t know why she makes them wait. It’s not like she can fix ugly.

          • Marsbars09

            That’s how narcissists operate.

          • MindStretch

            Lol..girl you ain’t never lied. Lol

          • Bwahaha! Thanks GF and Happy Easter weekend!

          • WestCoastFeed

            But, Tre huggers are claiming she looks 10 years younger–like the Teresa from season one,

          • Marsbars09

            They are crazy. The way Tre’s face has evolved screams of stress and despair. She probably cries herself to sleep every night.

          • Bwahahaha! Trehuggers are a good source of comedy. Some of them should donate their brains to science when they die.

          • Jennymckitty

            She doesn’t resemble anyone I’ve ever seen on TV. I don’t think she looks older…just profoundly different. The fans she has left are certainly loyal.

          • disqus_jpuxh67QSR

            i just watched season one and two..Teresa wishes she looked like that. her hair got bigger and bigger over the seasons.

    • Bad Barbie

      I think Joe doesn’t work because he damn well knows it will be garnished. He is a fool.

  • Brattus Rattus

    ok… SO I’m not usually one to ask for help or for much. But I figure is the Giudice kid can use Kickstarter and we all looked at it, I could hook my friend up. He just posted his video to make a commercial. I popped his cherry with his first pledge but if yall will watch, I’d appreciate it. If nothing else, it’s amazing how talented he is as a bartender.

    XOXO in advance. Going back to bed.

  • TartLemon

    Bravo was Teresa’s only hope for substantial income after serving her sentence and now she’s crapped all over them.

    • Bad Barbie

      She crapped all over them because of something that US Weekly makes the decision on? I don’t get it.

  • Wendy Owen

    So, she’ll be filing a tax return next year reporting her prison-time income, right?

    • fred

      tg said what is a tax return?

    • MindStretch

      Wendy, you are so freaking hilarious!!!

    • Ahahaha! Love you Ms. Owen!

  • MindStretch

    I’m no T fan….but come on . WHO IS THE DECISION MAKER AT US MAGAZINE??? …THAT is who Bravo should be pissed off at…the criminal is guilty of many things (which she STILL takes zero accountability). Us magazine staff is responsible for this one.

    • Bonita Gee

      RIGHT……… This story confuses me. Teresa doesn’t run Us Magazine, they make their own decisions. Like you said, Bravo should be upset with the magazine NOT Teresa.

      • Bad Barbie

        In reality, UsWeekly wants to sale, that is what keeps them in business. They will go with what will sale… Is Bravo pissed because Tre is not in contract anymore? They loved every minute of the exposure when she was bringing in the ratings. What exactly was going to be published about NY anyway?

  • honeybunny

    this is just disgusting. I hope the feds make her do the full 15 months….then give her a stiff deadline on paying that remaining 200k+ she owes for restitution. I hope all of those creditors truly are going after them for the money they owe them.

  • Bad Barbie

    I don’t think bravo realized that Bethanny coming back is not a big deal. She already flopped in everything else and some of us do remember how badly she spoke about the show and how “embarrassed” she said she was being on it, so now she comes back? For what?? LOL
    The same may happen if they try to bring Tre back. People have already tuned out.

  • Wrenniethepooh

    Well, can you blame US magazine. I’m sorry but RHONY is just tired and old…as are most of the Real Housewives franchises. I used to like to watch them, but I feel like it is the same stories just different cities and I’ve just stopped watching. So putting Tre on the cover, while she’s in prison probably felt like the safer bet to garner sales.
