Teresa Giudice recently raised a good deal of suspicion on Facebook, when she forced fans to pay in cash at a book signing. Now, the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is either feeling very generous or is simply eager to cover up her tracks — she recently donated the proceeds of the book signing to charity!
Given all the drama related to her current fraud charges, it seems odd that Teresa Giudice would risk it all by engaging in further shady business. But that’s exactly what the reality star appeared to be doing last week, when she collected cash from fans at a book signing. An attendee told Radar, “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.”
Whether she originally intended to keep the proceeds of the book signing or not, Teresa has decided to hand over the money to the Nephcure Foundation. According to another insider for Radar, “The arrangement was always that Teresa would be giving all proceeds to the Nephcure Foundation which seeks to find a cure for debilitating kidney diseases…All of the profits were donated to the charity. In no way whatsoever was Teresa trying to make a quick buck.”
Teresa confirmed rumors of her charity efforts on Twitter, explaining, “As I so often do, I’m donating all proceeds from selling my book at a recent event to the charity dear to my heart, Nephcure Foundation.”
Followers were very supportive of this decision, although a few noted how odd it was for the celebrity to conduct the charity effort on a cash-only basis. Do you agree? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
