I think by now everyone has heard the rumor that all the ladies have been asked back except for Danielle. And although nothing has been confirmed, this does appear to be the case.
TMZ reported that Teresa is now demanding 30k an episode or she will not be returning.
A quote from the article:
A source extremely close to Teresa tells us, “She would like to be paid more equivalent to what the ‘Jersey Shore‘ kids are getting” …. adding, “If she’s not treated better by Bravo, she’s ready to walk away.”
I know you all are crossing your fingers hoping they turn her down and she walks. But that will never happen. She is addicted to the fame and even if Bravo said they were going to pay her $1 an episode she still wouldnt leave the show.
Apparently all the women are asking for a pay raise, but Teresa took it a step further and is also asking for a cut of the DVD and merchandise sales. I don’t think that’s an entirely unfair request considering that it’s her public humiliation that is driving up the sales of these items. Its has been her general insane and out of control animalistic behavior that drew a lot of viewers in. Not to mention her real life
financial train wreck mess drama playing off screen in the media. If the show would have been all about Caroline and Jacqueline sitting in their kitchens, no one would have watched. I don’t know how much money Teresa deserves to make, or whether or not she will get it. But I know this, Teresa sold her soul for fame and when you make a deal with the devil, you often get screwed.
In other news I have heard from a few different sources that Teresa’s sister in law (the one who she supposedly doesn’t get along with and who may or may not be the mother of the “nephew” mentioned at the reunion) has been asked to join the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. According to rumors Teresa was not happy about this, but eventually agreed to go along with it. No contracts have been signed yet so nothing is official at the moment.
No word on Kim G, but I doubt she will be asked to join the cast. I’m sure she’ll use her friendship with Jacqueline and her skills as a seasoned shit starter to worm her way onto the screen in some way or another. So why would Bravo bother paying her if they already know she’ll do it for free? According to TMZ, Season 3 is going to begin shooting on September 3rd. Which means that they will be filming in October when Kim G shows up to Teresa’s auction and buys all of her possessions to sell on Ebay. Maybe she will have a heart and at least give the kids their beds back.
