ABC News Denies Paying for Interview

Some are wondering if ABC News paid “Real Housewife” star Teresa Giudice (who?!) her first sit-down TV interview since being released from federal prison.

Giudice sat down with Amy Robach for Good Morning America.

Page Six says that multiple sources said Giudice was angling for “GMA” to license personal photos to use during the talk. But an ABC rep vehemently countered: “This is totally false. We don’t license material when booking interviews. That’s been our policy for years. It’s well-documented.”

Teresa’s lawyer James J. Leonard Jr. declined to discuss any interview fees, but said, “The deciding factor to do ‘GMA’ over ‘Today’ or ‘CBS This Morning’ was [Teresa’s] pre-existing relationship with Amy Robach. They worked together in the past and Teresa has a tremendous amount of respect [for] and trust in Amy.”

Personally, FTVLive believes ABC in this instance, because seriously, who would pay a nickle for this crap?

Just saying....
