Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice In Court

More news to report in the Teresa Giudice bankruptcy saga.

Somehow this news has managed to slip through the cracks, but two days after the Ibuysss blog first broke the story, Reality Tea has uncovered some documents showing that on September 24, 2010, New Jersey Judge Morris Stern ruled that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa and her husband Joe Giudice are required to stand trial on July 14 & 15, 2011 for charges relating to bankruptcy fraud.

The Giudices had tried to get the bankruptcy fraud allegations dismissed. If you recall, Teresa and Joe filed bankruptcy back in October 2009 to the tune of $11 million in debt. Things were working according to plan for the Giudices as Teresa even went on a $60,000 shopping spree just days after filing Chapter 7.

The problems arose however when on 06/30/2010, John W. Sywilok, the Chapter 7 Trustee assigned to oversee the Giudices bankruptcy filing, alleged they had commited bankruptcy fraud by concealing assets and income from their filing. The accusations include -

  • Failure to report $250,000 (an advance Teresa received from a publishing deal for her book)
  • Failure to report Joe’s ownership/interest in a Pizza shop
  • Failure to report a $3,333.33 monthly income
  • Concealing assets including a bank account of Joe’s, two pieces of real property, vehicles, the ownership of an online boutique called TG Fabulicious
  • Presenting false income tax returns to the bankruptcy court

From looking at the court documents, tt seems the July, 2011 court date is simply to get a judge to dismiss the Giudices’ Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition because of fraud. If the trustee does suceed in getting the bankruptcy dismissed, the Giudices would then be responsible for their $11 million debt.

We’re no legal experts here at Reality Tea but it is likely criminal charges for lying under oath, IRS fraud, etc will follow if the Giudices are found guilty of commiting bankruptcy fraud as it appears the July 2011 hearing is solely focusing on getting their bankruptcy dismissed, and not so much on the criminal aspect of the serious allegations.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS? IF THE GIUDICES DID LIE IN THEIR FILING, DO THEY DESERVE TO GO TO JAIL?

“Alright for the record, Life&Style=garbage, RadarOnline=flies who eat poop off of garbage. You will all see the truth when Season 3 airs. xx.”

Above is what Teresa Giudice had to say about media outlets RadarOnline for reporting that she and hubby Joe Giudice started a brawl at her nephew’s christening, and Life & Style magazine for doing a cover story alleging Joe was cheating on her.

Appearing in the latest issue of In Touch magazine, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star attempts to put an end to the cheating rumors that continue to plague her marriage.

Teresa adamantly denies all the cheating reports and says she isn’t even giving any of it a second thought. “I know my husband – I’m not covering for him,” she insists. “If I knew he cheated on me, I would leave the guy in two seconds.”

As for how’s she’s so certain, Teresa adds, “You get that feeling when you have a boyfriend, fiance, whatever – you get a feeling when it’s not right. By the way they act, and the way they interact with you, you can just tell.”

Teresa does admit however that the constant reports have changed the way she and Joe live their lives as they are both now very careful in their actions when they go out. “I was at a bar [with girlfriends] and some guy asked me to dance,” Teresa shares. “I said no, because I knew that if I dance with him, it would be all over the papers.”

She also states that Joe no longer likes to go to clubs without her because “if a female fan comes up to him and takes a picture with him, it will be all over the place. People will think he’s on a date.”

Things are so great with Teresa and Joe that they are even considering trying for baby #5! “If you ask my husband, I’m sure he would want to have more,” Teresa says. “I did go to a psychic once, and she said I was going to have five. You never know!”

And finally, Teresa confirms to the mag that she has no intention of leaving the Housewives series. She also denies there is any trouble in her friendship with co-star Caroline Manzo, despite multiple reports stating otherwise.

Following her firing from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, despite her multiple denials that she quit the show on her own accord, Danielle Staub continues to be an attention whore .

The latest is an interview she did with Rob Shuter of Popeater for his new HDNet show, ‘Naughty But Nice With Rob.’

When asked if she’s dating a man or a woman these days, Danielle replied: “How about both?” She then added that she’s honest with all parties involved while making it clear the three don’t ever play together. “No, no, actually they’re not really happy about each other!” she added.

And when it comes to how she is perceived by others, it seems Danielle realizes she doesn’t have the best rep. “People do call me crazy. I don’t call myself that cause then I would be,” she said.

Just a week after an all out brawl at a child’s christening ceremony, it seems there is still drama raging on for the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

And once again the drama ensued at the Posche Fashion Show, you know, the same place cops were called to last year during the weave pulling fiasco involving Danielle Staub. And though there were no cops called this go around, RadarOnline reports emotions spilled over during the fashion show.

According to Radar, the show last night was the first time feuding sister-in-laws Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga (pictured above at the fashion show) came face to face following the fight that broke out at the christening of Melissa’s son. As reported, Melissa has been added as a new housewife to the Bravo hit show.

“Melissa and Teresa were on separate sides of the room,” an eyewitness told RadarOnline. “And not surprisingly, they were not speaking. It was Melissa’s side versus Teresa’s side. But you could see Teresa was intimidated. She sat in her seat. She didn’t move or talk to many people. She was not her ‘big’ self.”

The cause of the tension this time around? Competition according to sources. “It all started because Teresa was mad that Melissa was in the show for Posche and that Melissa was originally supposed to walk the runway before her,” said the eyewitness, who added that Teresa ended up walking out first.

The source added that the audience made it clear who’s side they were on. “When Teresa came out there was not much clapping or reaction. But when Melissa came out the room went nuts! A lot of the guests even stood up,” the eyewitness said. “Melissa looked beyond beautiful.”

And despite the denials from Caroline Manzo and Teresa that all is well in their relationship, RadarOnline reports once again that there is a rift between the two ladies which was  more obvious last night.

“Teresa and Caroline were talking at the table, but you could tell that they aren’t as close anymore,” an eyewitness said. It didn’t help matters when Teresa’s hairdresser Daniel, who was reportedly intoxicated began hurling profanities at Caroline and her husband Al Manzo.

Caroline reportedly reacted to the outburst by saying, “This is my home and this isn’t the time or the place,” and then kicking him out of the event, as the event took place at the Brownstone.

Radar also adds that Teresa’s cousin Kathy Wakile has been added to the cast and that Teresa was unhappy last night as she thought Kathy was too friendly with Melissa. Sources however say Kathy was just trying to play peacemaker between Teresa and Melissa.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY? ARE YOU AS EXCITED ABOUT THE 3RD SEASON OF THE NJ HOUSEWIVES AS WE ARE?

Danielle Staub got an unpleasant treat while at a Halloween party last night reports TMZ.

According to the site, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star got served for a defamation lawsuit her ex-boyfriend Steve Zalewski is bringing against her.

Danielle was reportedly on the red carpet at the Halloween event in Woodridge, NJ when the process server walked up with an envelope and said, “Here, Danielle … you’ve been served.” Danielle did not seem too distraught as she simply handed her publicist the envelope.

Steve is suing Danielle for defamation as he is claiming she falsely accused him of secretly videotaping a sex romp with her.  Danielle made the claims during an episode of the Bravo hit show. Steve has since stated publicly that Danielle was well aware she was being taped.

Danielle is no stranger to defamation lawsuits as she recently settled one with her ex-husband Kevin Maher. Though the settlements terms were kept confidential, sources close to Kevin have stated Danielle had to pay him a nice sum.

In other Danielle news, a new report by RadarOnline states her faux lesbian relationship with songwriting “superstar” Lori Michaels was just that – a faux lesbian relationship. A friend of the now broken up couple tells Radar that though the two women were “physical” with one another, they “were not a couple.”

“Did they have a connection? Yes. Was it was very strong through work and song? Yes. Did Danielle feel more? Yes. Did she indicate that to Lori? Yes. But Lori was never going to put herself in a place where she was going to run away with Danielle,” adds the source.

Radar adds that Danielle has wasted no time in moving on as she showed up to the Thursday night Halloween party (the same party she was served at) with a mystery man.

We reported two days ago that Joe Giudice started a brawl by punching his brother-in-law at the Christening ceremony of his wife Teresa’s nephew, well it now seems there might have been good reason for Joe’s misplaced anger.

Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, graces this week’s issue of Life & Style magazine under the title, “Betrayed By Her Man.” The magazine cover (a bigger photo is below) goes on to state: ‘Teresa’s Sleazy Husband Caught With Another Woman.’

According to Life & Style, Joe has been leading a secret, double life – filled with regular visits to strip clubs. A former dancer at the Showoffs strip club in West Orange, NJ tells the mag that Joe was a regular at the strip club before it was closed down in 2006 amid accusations of prostitution.

“He was always up for a lap dance,” reveals the insider. “There was a lot of hanky-panky that went down in the club’s basement… If you had money, you could get pretty up close and personal with the strippers.”

Joe was also allegedly a regular at another NJ bar called the Latin Bar. A source says “there was one particular waitress Joe really liked there.” The insider recalls, “She was from the Dominican Republic, about 5 feet tall with big breasts and long, dark hair. Joe would always make sure that wherever he was, he could be back in Paterson on a Friday night so he could see her.”

And finally, Life & Style reports that Joe developed a very close relationship with a “young female staffer” who wasn’t “qualified” for the job back at his former real estate development office. Sources reveal that Joe called his upstairs office the “boom boom room,” and that when he tried to give away his couch, no one would take it.

When contacted by the magazine for a comment, Teresa maintains that her marriage is strong. “I have a great husband,” she tells Life & Style. “I wake up every morning and I’m like, ‘Thank you, God.’”

Magazines usually contact their story subjects to get their statement on the story they’re doing about before the issue hits the press, so there’s a good chance Joe and Teresa knew this story was coming days ago.

More details about Joe’s alleged sleazy ways in the latest issue of Life & Style magazine. The cover photo is below.

Just when you thought the Giudices could not get any trashier, RadarOnline is reporting today that Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice did just that at a baby’s christening over the weekend. The story you are about to read is insanity squared.

According to Radar, the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars single handedly started an all out brawl at the Christening ceremony for the son of Teresa’s brother and sister-in-law Joe and Melissa Gorga. If you recall, Melissa, whom Teresa absolutely hates and does not get along with, has been added as a cast member to the Bravo hit show, must to Teresa’s dismay.

The drama began at the Gorgas’ Sunday Christening ceremony for their son, you know, the same son Danielle Staub accused Teresa of not acknowledging. Teresa attended the church ceremony without husband Joe, but following the baptism, she and Joe along with their four daughters, arrived an hour late to the reception ceremony which took place at The Manor restaurant in West Orange, NJ.

As the Bravo cameras rolled, Teresa walked up to her brother Joe Gorga to congratulate him and he said in an upset tone: “Now you want to congratulate me after all this time? Now you want to be nice to me? Your husband didn’t even come to the church and you show up an hour late!” a source tells Radar.

Teresa attempted to play dumb and simply responded with, “I just wanted to say hi and congratulations.” However due to the bad blood between the siblings, a verbal argument ensued during which Joe Giudice got involved, leading to a physical altercation between him and Teresa’s brother Joey.

“There were punches, vulgarity. It was like a scene out of a movie,” another source tells Radar of the fight. “Guests were also screaming at the Bravo cameras to get out of there.” With over 100 people in attendance, family members and most of the guests tried to help break up the fight.

Shirts were ripped and Joe Giudice, who might or might not be a midget himself, reportedly yelled at one point to the people holding him back: “I’ll kill that f**king midget!” Another source adds, “Joey Gorga and Joe Giudice were like animals. It was complete chaos.”

Teresa’s father was reportedly extremely upset and yelling for them to stop fighting in Italian. Teresa kept telling her father: “I didn’t do anything, I didn’t do anything,” says a source. At some point, Teresa was yelling at Melissa and Melissa’s sisters got involved. “They also got into a physical altercation with Teresa, who was fighting back. Joe Giudice’s father punched one of Melissa’s brother-in-laws in the face and he was bleeding,” the source said.

Melissa and the guests were reportedly mortified by the barbaric behavior. A family friend at the party tells Radar that “Melissa is disgusted and humiliated. Her heart is broken for her son on his christening day.” Most of the guests were reportedly angry that their kids were traumatized and left with their gifts.

“Teresa’s children Gia and Gabriella were hysterically crying,” says a source. “Melissa’s daughter Antonia was also upset. Kids were running around crying, screaming and hiding.”

The family friend adds that “It was a special day; it was going wonderfully and perfectly and Teresa lost her mind and wanted to make it about her and does what she does best. She couldn’t stand all eyes on the Gorga family. It was similar to the Posh runway show situation [that aired on Bravo] where she started a fight with Danielle [Staub].”

Wowzers! WTF is wrong with these people? And for some odd reason, Teresa continues to wonder why people refer to her as trashy. It seems her contract dispute with Bravo is over as filming has started on the 3rd season of the show. Melissa hasn’t updated her twitter account in days and Teresa, who did not tweet all of yesterday, seems to be in damage control mode as she has spent the last 30 minutes tweeting photos of her daughters in their Halloween costumes, with zero mention of this incident.

UPDATE – Melissa Gorga posted the following on her twitter page – “Thank you all so much for your support, The day started out beautifully, I can’t stop looking at my son, I’m still in shock….”
