Now that decision day for the Giudices has come to an end, with Teresa serving 15 months in prison and Joe serving 41, in addition to the fines he will have to pay, the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars probably have a lot to say.
Although Bravo hasn’t made a statement regarding its stars’ fates, the crooked celebrities will be sitting down with Andy Cohen for their first post-sentencing interview in Watch What Happens Live: One-on-One With Teresa and Joe. But that shouldn’t surprise RadarOnline.com readers, because we already told you that!
As Radar previously reported, Teresa was hoping to cash in after the proceedings by doing a paid interview with a celebrity entertainment show. Her hopes were dashed, however, when Bravo reminded her that she would be contractually obliged to sit down with Cohen first, which means she would lose out on a big paycheck.
“Andy has the first right of refusal under Teresa’s contract with Bravo…Obviously, Andy and Bravo know this will be ratings gold, and wouldn’t pass up the chance to interview Teresa one-on-one, after she is sentenced on October 2,” a source told Radar exclusively.
“Teresa had been in talks with several entertainment shows to do a paid interview, but now that won’t be happening,” the source added. “She has to tell Bravo in writing what media interviews she is doing, and Bravo has the right to do it first. This interview will be separate from the reunion show.”
Despite friendly appearances on-air, Giudice and Cohen have been feuding for sometime. The WWHL host cancelled an appearance with Giudice after he and Bravo became upset with the reality star after she let her diva behavior ruin RHONJ promotional appearances.
“The last thing Teresa wants to do is do an interview with Andy about how she feels about whatever the criminal punishment will be,” the source adds. “She will do it, and plans on being as non-emotional as possible. There is no way Andy is going to make Teresa cry.”
