So in case you haven't heard, Joe Giudice was charged with like 3 zillion money fraud related indictments. Which is about how much money he also owes because of bankruptcy debts related to falsifying income. And when he's done there he owes the IRS big too. Long story short, homeboy is in biiig trouble!
Among the revelations that emerged about the Real Housewives of New Jersey star during the court proceedings was that, despite being married to Teresa Giudice for like 15 years, Joe never bothered to become a U.S. citizen. Which means he's still an Italian citizen, since he was born there. And since he's not a U.S. citizen, as a felon or a convicted offender he could be deported!
We've been wondering how likely it was that ol' Juicy could be shipped off to Italy and lucky us, we got the opportunity to speak to an immigration attorney who gave us some insight into how cases such as these generally work.
Disclaimer: This attorney does not represent Teresa or Joe and is in no way connected personally or professionally to their case or to Reality Tea. This attorney just so happens to be a RHONJ fan like the rest of us!
Jennifer Dalton is the new girl on the Franklin Lakes block and she has wasted no time taking on the biggest drama starter of them all: Kim DePaola! The ladies bitterly hate each other and have been slamming each other left and right; on twitter, in interviews, in blogs. I guess with Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga "getting along" someone needs to be hating on each other in public, right?!
Well now the arguing is getting downright nasty – and possibly law enforcement will be getting involved.
Among the various Gorga family feuds, Teresa's father is also at odds with Kathy Wakile's mother and they have been for years! This week Teresa and Rosie Pierri sat down to try and iron out differences and be a family again. Our source gives us an EXCLUSIVE back story about the Gorga family feuds, both Original Flavor (old school) and Reality TV Flavor (New School starring Poison and Teresa!).
Apparently part of Teresa's parent's drama with Kathy centers around her decision to join RHONJ despite the family issues. "Teresa's parents were against Melissa [Gorga], Joe, and Kathy joining the show. Why? Because of all the family drama. Who would want their family drama on TV? So, yes, Teresa's father holds a grudge against Kathy and her family as well as their own son and his wife."
Despite what anyone wants to say about Teresa Giudice, the infamous bankrupt villainess of questionable intelligence has managed to convince producers to entirely craft the storylines of Real Housewives of New Jersey around her. Genius or lucky?
In tonight's installment of Teresa's Revenge, she will go head-to-head with cousin Rosie Pierri, who was last seen in a drunken stupor instructing Teresa to participate in some lurid sexual practices. Hey – hate sex works for some people!
Anyhoodle, Rosie and Teresa will sit down tonight and try to iron out all the conflict that has erupted since their parents stopped speaking and Wallpaper Wakile joined the show as Melissa Gorga's sidekick.
The RHONJ couple attended a meet 'n greet book event in Coral Gables to sign copies of 'Fabulicious On The Grill'. Fans have been sharing photos of their encounter on Twitter. The Giudices even hung out and had a beer with some of them. Tonight Tre heads over to the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale at 7pm.
We'll be bringing you our regular Sunday night preview ahead of the show, but we wanted to share some inside info about what we can expect from the new episode. We're impatient and hate to hold out on ya, what can we say?

Tonight's episode the plot will mostly center around Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo facing off for the first time since last season's "Disgrace" argument in Napa. The former friends, turned frienemies, turned total enemies will meet to try and mend Teresa's relationship with poor, widdle Poison.
Tom Murro's source EXCLUSIVELY reveals that the main point of contention will be Teresa's continued friendship with Kim D. Caroline presses Teresa about why she would remain friends with Kim given her involvement in the Posche Fashion Show set-up with Melissa Gorga last season.
Since each family attends a different parish, it was unfortunate that the churches scheduled the events on the same day. Our source tells us that while Teresa opted for a low-key family celebration, Melissa opted for a huge bash filmed by Bravo and filled with vendor "donations".
"Teresa had a small immediate family only party at an Italian restaurant," our source shares. Gabriella wanted a "simple" party and was happy. "Teresa's parents did attend both parties," but were "less than thrilled to attend their granddaughter's over the top affair. Of course, they went for their granddaughter."
Well, a very reliable source just confirmed EXCLUSIVELY to Reality Tea that the recently reported RHONJ salaries are not true! In fact – they're totally off base.
"All 5 RHONJ cast members, Teresa, Melissa, Caroline, Jacqueline and Kathy made the same amount this season – $600k. That wasn't always the case but for season 5 they are all on the same salary," our source shares.
