Teresa Giudice is getting a lot of attention as of late for her alleged criminal activity.
Earlier we wrote that Teresa and Joe Giudice had hired separate defense attorneys to combat their fraud indictment. We speculated that it seemed uncommon to have separate attorneys as a married couple fighting the same charges and I commented that I believed Teresa and Joe were planning to have him take the heat so she could try to avoid a more serious punishment like jail time. Remember, Teresa has no priors. Joe, well – you know…
In response to our story a criminal defense attorney (who does not represent Teresa or Joe) reached out to us to clear up some aspects of how the legal process works. The attorney we spoke to explained that it's "very common in criminal proceedings" to hire separate attorneys. Apparently many judges will not allow both parties to share legal representation because "as individuals, they have separate interests and those interests need to be protected."
Snooki andJWoww are back for a third season of theirJersey Shore spinoff, Snooki & JWoww, set to hit screens in October. As filming gets underway, Snooki hit the beach with her family. Nicole showed off her bikini body as she relaxed in the sun (with leopard print beach blanket, of course) with her fianceJionni LaValle and their ahhhhdorable little guy Lorenzo, 11 months.
TELL US – ARE YOU READY FOR SEASON 3 WITH THE JERSEY GIRLS?
They say a tough situation determines your friends from your enemies! I guess you could say Teresa Giudice has a real friend in Kim DePaola. Who woudda thunk it?!
In response to Teresa's recent indictment, Kim is defending her friend and fellow Real Housewives of New Jersey star. "Knowing Teresa as well as I know her, and I think I know her, I don't think she would ever willingly do any of this," Kim insists to Us Weekly.
Kim just doesn't think Teresa would knowingly take the risk! "She has four kids. I don't think she's capable of it. I think there's been a witch-hunt going on for a long time for her."
Rumor has it Teresa is setting up a defense that while she participated in what Joe Giudice was doing, she was pretty clueless about what she was signing, etc.
If you watched Monday night's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County (and didn't skip the commercials like I did), you may have already seen this little gem, but for the rest of us – here it is. Bravo is really getting into these fun promo videos/commercials! They did give us a sneak peek back in June, showing us a glimpse of what we can expect. This promo is a nice little teaser without showing too much of the good stuff just yet.
Have y'all missed Cathy and the Candy Apples? Abby Lee Miller certainly has not, and we got to hear all about it on last night's Dance Moms. Is it just me, or has this been like the longest season in the show's history? Geez Louise!
After touting her recital as a raving success, Abby goes straight into the pyramid. Not surprisingly, Paige is on the bottom for not participating, followed by sister Brooke. Abby rants on about how she was giving Brooke the opportunity to resurrect her old song, but that Kelly loves to thwart her daughters' happiness at every turn. Kelly, Brooke, and Paige are not in attendance. Surprisingly, Asia is after Brooke, and for once, Jill and Christi may get to see more tears (they love when Asia cries, don't they?). Asia will never be allowed to dress herself after that backwards pants fiasco. Nia rounds out the bottom for just being mediocre, and Holly speaks up that Abby never gives her daughter extra time.
Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice were indicted on 39-counts of money fraud earlier this week. Yesterday the couple was released on $500,000 bond each and it was discovered that Joe isn't even a U.S. citizen and faces deportation if convicted. So yeah, good times!
In August the couple meets back in court where both plan to enter Not Guilty pleas, but it's apparently Teresa will try to get out of jail time while Juicy does the dirty work. Hey – they do have four kids AND a reality television career to nurture!
Speaking of reality TV, Teresa's attorney Henry Klingeman is targeting Real Housewives of New Jersey as the reason Teresa and Joe are in such trouble. Oh rlllly…
