Teresa Giudice has not signed a $200,000 deal with Bravo to film her first post-prison interview with the network, despite a new webloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “not true at all.”

As Gossip Cop has reported, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star was sentenced last year to 15 months behind bars for bankruptcy and mortgage fraud. She has been serving time at Danbury Federal Correctional Institute in Connecticut since January.

According to RadarOnline, however, Giudice has now scored a major payday from the network that made her a star, having agreed to sit down for a tell-all interview following her release from prison in a few months. A so-called “insider” tells the webloid, “Bravo is giving Teresa the huge paycheck because her contract to film ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ didn’t include the post prison interview.” The source goes on to claim that Giudice’s lawyer was able to score her $200,000 “because there was bidding with several entertainment news programs” for her first interview.

But Gossip Cop has learned that Giudice has not yet booked her first post-prison interview with Bravo nor with any other network for that matter. A source at Bravo laughed off the webloid’s report that Giudice has booked a $200,000 post-prison interview with the cable network. Gossip Cop is exclusively told that the story is “not true at all.”

Of course, we’re not entirely surprised the report is untrue. Gossip Cop has repeatedly busted RadarOnline for making up stories about Giudice. We previously shot down the webloid’s claim that she was joining “Dancing With The Stars” after prison. And Gossip Cop busted the site, as well, for a fabricated story about Giudice attempting to get a “weekend pass” out of jail. Neither of those stories were true, and the same goes for the webloid’s latest report about a $200,000 interview on Bravo.
