With legal bills to pay off and no source of income in sight, Teresa Giudice is cashing in from behind bars the only way she knows how: by setting up TV deals! RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is in talks for a spot on Dancing With the Stars.
“She said she was asked to do Dancing With the Stars,” an inmate, who was recently released from Giudice's Danbury Federal Corrections Institute, told Radar.
Although the reality star's 15-month sentence is stopping her from showing off her dance moves for now, Giudice still found a way to make easy money in the meantime.
The inmate confirmed Radar's report that Giudice and her family sold a photo taken during a prison visit for a massive payday.
“She was talking to one woman about it and she said 'We sold the photo for $75,000,'” the source explained.
But Giudice backtracked once the fraudster's fellow inmate informed her that selling the photo behind bars was not allowed. “Teresa quickly said, 'Oh no, we gave it to them,'” the insider said.
The source added, “I don't know how they got away with it. She wanted that photo out there, absolutely.”
But Giudice isn't the only one who is using her misfortune to cash in!
“An inmate did have a phone and was trying to take photos of her,” the source said, confirming Radar's report. “Someone ratted her out and Teresa was like, 'They're taking photos of me doing yoga!' She was upset about that.”
