NOW THAT'S FUNNY
The Real Housewives of New Jersey buzz these days is all about Teresa Giudice. First, she was refusing to sign her new contract unless her salary is doubled. Reports have her making $3,000 per episode, and a look at her bankruptcy papers seem to bear this out. She also wants a cut of the DVD and merchandise sales – the network is selling t-shirts with Teresa's slogan "Happy Wife, Happy Life" on them for $24.95 a piece.
Teresa also wants to be free to make more paid personal appearances. She has been quoted as saying that she wants her salary to be more in line with what the Jersey Shore casts makes — they just signed for $30,000 an episode.
Then comes the news that the RHONJ is adding a new cast member for the upcoming season, and guess what? It's Teresa Guidice's sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, as reported by RadarOnline.
