“Teresa is now getting $62,000 per episode and with 18 episodes a season that comes out to $1,116,000,” an insider revealed to Radar Online. “Teresa got a bump up from her $1 million she was earning before.”
Joe is set to be released from prison on March 14, but he will be going straight to an ICE detention center as he is yet to receive a response regarding the appeal he filed against his deportation last year. While there is a chance the ruling will be overturned, his marriage to Teresa will come to an end if it is not.
“Teresa’s family drama is what people want to see,” the insider said. “So, she is getting a generous raise to continue sharing the drama, especially after Joe’s release date.”
“I’m not doing a long-distance relationship. I’m not doing it,” she said. “You know, I want somebody with me every day. I know exactly what happens. You know, I’m sure he’ll be with other women. It happens. We do the long-distance thing, it’s not going to work. I’d be like, ‘Bye, bye.’”
According to a separate report from Us Weekly, filming started on the new season last week and the entire season nine cast, including Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, Jennifer Aydin, and Jackie Goldschneider, will also be seen on season 10.
“All of the Housewives are returning,” a source told the magazine.
