Teresa Giudice doesn't come cheap!

The OG Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member has proved valuable to the show in the past, and that's definitely reflected in her Season 6 salary, which a source tells RadarOnline.com is a cool $700K.


This number jives with what we've heard before. In the past, Teresa's salary has been reported as $650K, and it makes sense that she may have demanded a raise going into Season 6, especially because her family is going through so many difficulties. Extra troubles should equal extra cash if you're going to expose your life on national TV, right?

Of course, with Joe and Teresa currently in the midst of a major legal battle with their federal fraud case, it's also not a surprise that Radar's source claims most of that money is going to legal fees.

Still, Teresa’s paycheck dwarfs the money her co-stars are bringing in. According to another report, Melissa Gorga is making $250K, returning H'wife Dina Manzo gets $100K, and the three newbies, Amber Marchese, Teresa Aprea, and Nicole Mauriello, each get $60K.

Are you surprised by how much Teresa makes? Let us know in the comments below!
