According to a new report, the mother of four is ready to end her marriage to Joe Giudice as he prepares for his impending deportation this March and wants to ensure she can afford to maintain her pricey lifestyle without him.
“Teresa wants to have her very own Bravo spinoff show,” a source revealed to Radar Online on January 29. “Her role on RHONJ just doesn’t pay enough, and Teresa needs the extra cash to be able to buy Joe out of his portion of the ownership of their mansion.”
“Teresa has held back a lot of intimate details about her personal life from viewers and is pitching Bravo that this project would allow her to be essentially reintroduced to the audience,” the source explained.
“Teresa will sign the Bravo deal before the divorce from Joe is final,” the insider continued. “She has already had her accountant do the analysis of how much she is currently worth, and potentially what she will owe Joe.”
As for any future projects outside of her Bravo TV commitments, such as endorsement deals, they wouldn’t be signed until after Teresa’s potential divorce from Joe is made final because she doesn’t want to have to give him a portion of her earnings.
Rumors of a possible divorce between Teresa and Joe have been swirling for months and during the recent taping of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Teresa reportedly revealed her plans to split from Joe to her co-stars.
“She is talking about divorce, absolutely,” the source confirmed. “There is no way Teresa is going to uproot her life. He did this, why should she suffer? Teresa won’t be moving to Italy with Joe, period.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season nine airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
