According to Radar Online, Giudice recently signed a deal with the feds to allow 25% of her Bravo paychecks to go towards paying off her $400,000 restitution. It is expected that she will write a book detailing her experiences in jail to raise a bit more cash to pay her debts.
An insider says;
“Teresa is looking forward to getting out, obviously. Knowing there are creditors waiting to collect the outstanding $13.5 million debt, she is already trying to line up jobs now. Since the biggest paycheck would come from the RHONJ, Teresa wants to go back to the show.”
Bravo had been playing it cool while they decided whether or not to let her back in their Housewives' family—but they finally appear to have come to the conclusion that they need her on board. Radar report that recording will be delayed until the Fall so that her release can be filmed for the show—she would then be included in the second half of the season. The source admitted;
"Without Teresa there just isn’t a lot going on with the women. With her on board, cameras would film Joe’s final days with the family as he prepares to begin his 41 month prison sentence.”
However Teresa may have to do a little persuading with the probation department as they have to sign off on whatever employment she chooses, and she is a little worried her career choice won't be acceptable—although quite how else they would expect her to earn a living is beyond us.
When she gets out in December, she will be on probation while her husband Joe Giudice will begin serving his sentence. Their mansion is currently in foreclosure and the beach house is due to be auctioned off soon to pay the debts, furniture and a 2005 Maserati have also been seized.
Teresa is also going to have to deal with the countless claims of Joe's cheating while she has been away—will prison have given her a new approach to dealing with her douchebag husband, or will she follow her previous custom of sticking her head in the sand and standing by her man no matter what?
