Teresa Giudice has truly turned the tables on her financial fate.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey jailbird, 43, begins a media blitz today to promote her book, Turning the Tables, with appearances on Good Morning America, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood and Watch What Happens Live — and she's set to score a huge payday from the rush of good fortune, can exclusively reveal.

Giudice, who was paid $250,000 for a final sit-down interview with Andy Cohen before her one-year sentence on fraud charges, will be getting a $100,000 increase for Tuesday night's interview with Cohen, bringing her up to $350,000, sources told Radar.

Her upcoming Real Housewives of New Jersey paycheck will be in the $1-2 million range, and she received a healthy six-figure advance from publisher Simon & Schuster for her memoir.

It's a stunning turnaround for the previously broke reality star. Prior to going to prison, her beloved Montclair, New Jersey mansion was in foreclosure, and she owed almost $500,000 in restitution.

Her tough-as-nails attorney "has been able to get the best possible deals for Teresa to put her in the black for the first time in years," a source explained. "He has been very aggressive but professional in his representation of Teresa. The house is now out of foreclosure, and restitution is paid off."

Her $550,000 back taxes "are being dealt with," the source also assured.

But it's not all good news for Giudice: Her husband Joe, 43, begins his 41-month prison sentence next month.

Giudice's attorney did not immediately respond to request for comment.
