With their sentencing date quickly approaching, it would appear that Joe and Teresa Giudice are desperate for cash.
Shortly after it was revealed the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars listed not only their $4 million house in Montvale, N.J., but also their Jersey Shore beach house, a new report has surfaced alleging the “Real Husband” is demanding $30,000 from Bravo for him to appear on the upcoming RHONJ reunion special!
The source claims he’s trying to swindle a deal in which he can turn himself in around the holidays—well after his upcoming Oct. 2 sentencing. This means he’d be available for the reunion special, set to tape just three days later, and he’s hoping to take advantage of the timing.

“Being fully aware that Bravo needs both he and Teresa to appear on the reunion, Joe is demanding that he get $30,000,” the source said. “If Bravo doesn’t want to pay him as much, he just won’t be there.”
Anyone who has watched a reunion special knows that he may be cutting a sweet deal—even if he doesn’t cash out.
“It actually would be a relief for Joe if he didn’t have to appear on the reunion show, because it always involves so much drama,” the source said.
