Celebrities are often compensated for making public appearances and endorsements, so why should Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice be an exception? Plus her appearances may be about to get a lot more rare. With less than three weeks until her sentencing (she and her husband Joe pled guilty to bankruptcy and fraud charges), you can bet your culo (that’s Italian for butt) you’re going to see more of Giudice hocking stuff.
RadarOnline reports that Giudice was paid $5,000 to sign bottles of her sparkling wine Fabellini at The Godfather restaurant in New Jersey. (It’s called Fabellini because each 4 oz. serving is under 130 calories, which is fab in Real Housewife-speak.) Giudice also got a percentage of the sales from the evening’s drink specials, too. Fans of RHONJ should buy up the bottles now. Chances are Joe Giudice is going to prison. After the sentencing, swallowing a glass of Fabellinni isn’t going to go down smoothly.
