Teresa Giudice Caught On Camera Selling Fans ‘Cash Only’ Books At New Jersey Fashion Show


RadarOnline.com:
Teresa Giudice held a book signing on Wednesday night at The Porsche Spring Soiree in Garfield — and in exclusive video footage obtained by RadarOnline.com, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is seen charging CASH ONLY — with no receipts — for her book and signature!

Headlining the event — hosted by one of her best friends Kim Depaola — tickets were advertised for $110 that included dinner, wine, music and a fashion show, but there was no mention of charging for a signature from one of Bravo’s most controversial stars!

“Teresa was advertised as the the celebrity guest and that she would be signing copies of her latest book. But nowhere was it advertised that she would be charging guests $25 to sign and take a photo with her!” one guest told Radar.

“When you walked up to her, the woman next to her was quick to advise that it was $25 and ‘cash only.’ Cash only? Who takes cash only? Even Teresa was telling guests it was ‘cash only, no receipts’  and she had bags of cash beside her where her colleague was collecting the money.”

According to the eyewitness, guests were okay with paying for a book — but some were shocked when their plastic was turned down!

“The reaction of everyone was priceless. It was the hot topic of the event. Why would someone insist on cash only?” the eyewitness added.

“Everyone was saying it was clearly to avoid a paper trial of her sales.”

As Radar previously reported, Giudice, 41, and her husband Joe were charged with 41 counts of fraud and tax evasion and after pleading guilty and ultimately taking a plea deal, both face large fines and prison time.

Teresa now faces 27 months in prison, while husband Joe could get 46 months and is likely be deported back to Italy.

The original bank and bankruptcy fraud charges centered on their inability to file tax returns from 2004 to 2008.
