real housewives new jersey teresa giudice charity 500 'Real Housewives NJ': Teresa Giudice's time isn't free (not even for charity?)With all the financial problems that “The Real Housewives of New Jersey’sTeresa Giudice has been dealing with lately, we don’t expect her to make public appearances for free.

But when a charity event asked her to grace them with her presence, they were shocked to hear from her manager that she wouldn’t come for free (especially when her typically shifty cast member, Danielle Staub, did).

]]>Mike Esterman, said “that she would not show up unless she got paid,” the event coordinator for Strengthen Our Sisters, Athena Georgiadis, told the New York Post. “I explained this was for a shelter for women and children. He said it doesn’t matter.” According to the site, Teresa charges $3,000 and car service for appearances. Georgiadis did say that Danielle, her daughters, and her rumored girlfriend and song partner, Lori Michaels, came for free. To be fair, many celebrities at all levels of popularity charge for their appearances, regardless of what kind of event it is. Esterman says he told the organization that he only handles her paid appearances and if they wanted her to come for free, they should approach her personally. We also wonder if she just decided not to come, because Danielle was there. Hello, Danielle is threatening to sue her! At any rate, is it that hard to give Teresa the message, Mr. Esterman? Don’t you think she would have waived her fee if she knew? Follow Zap2it and TheRealJethro on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news. Photo credit: Bravo
