Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice was not going to talk about her husband Joe’s deportation crisis unless Bravo showed her some extra cash, and the network has come through. According to a new report, Giudice has agreed to film a special about the situation in return for an extra $500,000.
According to Radar Online, a judge has ruled that Joe’s deportation process could proceed, which means he could get kicked out of the country at any time – and the scandal is all going to play out on television.
“Teresa was offered big bucks to film a special about Joe’s deportation and she agreed to do it,” reveals an insider. “Half a million dollars to share the story on camera. It is going to be like the other specials when she was in prison and will show how she and Joe and the girls are handling the scary prospect of Joe getting deported.”

An official from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review says that the records show an immigration judge ordered Joe’s removal from the United States back in March. He has another hearing scheduled in August, and Joe and Teresa needed some cash, so she agreed to film the special.
The insider says that the reality star will “do anything for money,” because she is always thinking about taking care of her girls. Teresa is a good mom who wants to provide for her kids, plus she wants them to have money for college.
Joe will complete his 41-month prison sentence in March of next year, but the deportation back to his native Italy could happen before then. If he is able to complete his sentence first, then the prison would transfer custody over to ICE instead of allowing him to go home.
Some reports claim that Teresa is hoping that her time on Celebrity Apprentice will help her keep Joe in the country. An inside source says that she is trying to reach President Trump so she can ask for a pardon.
When Kim Kardashian had success convincing the President to release 63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson from prison, it inspired Teresa, and it made her think Joe could get the same treatment.
However, Joe’s case is significantly different from Johnson’s. He came to this country as a child and never became an American citizen. Then, he pled guilty to bankruptcy fraud which led to his prison time. Johnson served over 20 years in prison for a first time non-violent drug offense.
