Danielle Staub has already confirmed she’s leaving, but will Teresa Giudice be the next Real Housewife to go? According to a friend, the already financially strapped Giudice has a deal with Bravo involving royalties from her ‘Skinny Italian’ cookbook.
The New York Post is reporting that Guidice had negotiated with the network to give them 10% royalties from the best-selling cookbook in exchange for promoting the book on the show. She filmed several scenes promoting the book, but unfortunately that footage seems to be sitting on the cutting room floor (of course it did – there’s too much drama on that show to spend time on a cookbook!) The book was only mentioned once in the reunion show too!
The Post reports that Bravo is trying to ‘hardball Giudice by moving to hire her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, whom she hates, as a possible replacement.’ A friend of Giudice is claiming that she is done with Bravo though, and not to expect her to return. What do you think? Do you really think someone in Teresa’s financial situation right now can afford to be picky?
