Real Housewives of New Jersey: Is Teresa Giudice Quitting?Mara Siegler
She’s not being greedy though she certainly needs it now that the Giudices have declared bankruptcy. She just wants what is fair and right now, she makes less than her cast mates.
“I think people deserve to know the truth,” a friend of Teresa’s tells PopEater.com. “Bravo pays Caroline and Jacqueline more than Teresa and she isn’t holding out because she thinks she’s bigger. She just wants to make the same.”
The reason Caroline Manzo gets paid more is that she gets paid for her children. Teresa can not get the same compensation because her children are minors and it would violate labor laws.
Adding the amount that adult children are given, the Manzos are getting $310,000, the Lauritas are second with $270,000 and the Giudices receive the base rate of $250,000, say reports.
I’d certainly be upset as well. Do you think Bravo should pay Teresa more? She does have to hire a babysitter, after all.
