Instead the ladies joined Andy Cohen in New York yesterday, where all were present and accounted for – even Teresa! Teresa arrived at the taping, dressed casually, and shared that she’s doing “OK” in the wake of her sentencing for bankruptcy fraud, wire fraud, and mail fraud. Joe Giudice also attended the reunion filming, but arrived separately from Teresa.
Some options include putting filming for season 7 on long hiatus until Teresa returns from prison. “It’s been done before,” an insider explains. “There was a point where `Real Housewives of New York’ was off the air for almost a year.” It’s fair to note however, that when the show return ratings were at an all-time low. Of course with the drama of Teresa re-enacting Orange Is The New Leopard Black, I doubt that will be the case with RHONJ!
Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe have a long road ahead of them. But since they were each handed prison sentences on Thursday, they can finally see a light at the end of their fraud tunnel.
The embattled Real Housewives of New Jersey stars were sentenced on multiple charges of fraud. The judge read them both the riot act as she first gave Joe 41 months in prison and then Teresa 15 months. The one area in which she was lenient is the fact that she is allowing Teresa to serve her time first, then Joe will serve his, allowing one parent to always remain with their four daughters.
The couple have yet to publicly comment on their sentences — that will happen on Watch What Happens Live on Monday — but many relevant and non-relevant reality stars shared their positive — and not-so-positive — reactions.
Well I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow night! Bravo seems to be cashing in on everything Giudice now that the stars of Real Housewives of New Jersey are heading to the clink. I have to admit, I am still a bit of shock to think of Teresa Giudice serving actual time. Something tells me that Juicy Joe wasn’t surprised to hear his sentence. I feel like he’s been dodging the law for so long, it has to be a bit of relief to get to stop running.
Of course, the Giudices (and the network that introduced them to the world) want to proactively handle the insane publicity that is sure to intensify as we countdown to Tre’s lock-up. Andy Cohen is no dummy. He’s going to milk this for all it’s worth, and he’s already teasing the Giudices’ Monday appearance in the clubhouse on the heels of Teresa canceling her public appearances.
In light of the events that have taken place in the last few days, Teresa Giudice has decided to cancel an appearance that was set for this coming week.
Unless you have been living under a rock or lost your internet connection, you know that the troubled Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband, Joe Giudice were both handed prison sentences on Thursday for their multiple charges of fraud. She was given 15 months in prison and he was given 41 months.
So I guess we probably all understand that a few days after learning you will be spending 2015 in the slammer, you may not feel up to signing bottles of wine and having your picture taken.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!

It has been a busy couple of weeks in the life of former Jersey Shore star Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino. First he had to turn himself in to authorities after being indicted on millions of dollars of tax fraud. Then he had to appear in court on an unrelated charge of bouncing a check to an employee at his tanning salon.
But in his last court appearance of the week, was when Mike made a revelation that surprised even us. In order to get his tax fraud case postponed, Mike revealed that not only is he engaged, but he is also getting ready to film the new season of Marriage Boot Camp.
