Teresa Giudice Makes the Most of All the Housewives -- Wait 'til You Hear How Much

OMG 64

teresa giudiceHere I was all this time, thinking NeNe Leakes was the highest paid of all the Real Housewives. How wrong I was. Turns out, none other than Teresa Giudice is the lady raking in the most cash of all the Bravolebrities. And you'll never in a million years guess the insane amount Tre banks in a season. No wonder Melissa Gorga hates her so much.

Teresa reportedly makes a whopping $600,000 a season for being on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. And that doesn't include her Skinny Italian franchise, her appearances, and whatever else she's got going on. Teresa has legitimately gotten rich off the cray she's brought to the show (or at least gotten out of debt). I would have never guessed she made that much. The second highest paid Housewives are RHONY's LuAnn DeLesseps and Romana Singer, making $500,000 a season; followed by NeNe, who makes $350,000 a season (plus her spinoff, I Dream of NeNe).

Knowing what I know now, I have a feeling that Teresa's insane paycheck is what fuels some of the fire between her and Melissa. Not that it looks like Melissa and Joe Gorga are strapped for cash, but I bet it kills Melissa that her sister-in-law makes so much more than her. (No word on exactly what Melissa makes a season, but I've heard $300,000.)

Whether you like Teresa or not, there's no denying that the woman is damn entertaining and she brings an element to the show that no other person possibly could. I'm not saying it isn't a little gross that grown women are becoming millionaires off their immaturity when perfectly intelligent people can't pay their rent. But I get it.

What do you think of this?

I don't think this is factually correct. NeNe just renegotiated and makes well over $1 million per season, up from $750,000 last season. Tre probably comes in second.

I hate Teresa. She is out of her mind and this story line is getting so old, I often have to turn the show off. I don't know why I watch. I guess because I like the others.

Mary Margaret Flores Ruckman

She's a hard hard working girl. Stepped up to the plate when her family had financial hardships. Had to handle her jealous relatives trying to GRAB the spotlight and put some things on air that even Theresa didn't want exposed. SHE BETTER BE THE HIGHEST PAID HOUSEWIFE.

Brenda Colón Hill

Yeah but she doesnt know how to manage her money so it doesnt matter. The property taxes and the way she spends is just stupid


Marilynne Dwire

She needs it to keep her fat ass "husband" out of jail. WTF does he do? He likely gets paid from Bravo, as well as other husbands on these shows. Think about it, what 'normal' people would put out all of the shit the Gudeis's do out for everyone to see, if they both weren't making money from it? Pay your lawyer fees, Tre, so you don't go to jail either.

Laurie Black Gaspard

I can't help it, knowing what I know about Teresa, still I love her!
