Since her December 23 prison release after serving 11 months on fraud counts, Real Housewives of New Jersey’sTeresa Giudice has certainly been busy trying to get her life back in order. The reality series star and best-selling author, who has probably been hounded by hordes of media vying to get the first post-prison interview with her has agreed to a sit-down with ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America.”
Teresa and husband Joe Giudice have in the past, given exclusives to their boss, Andy Cohenwho is an executive producer on RHONJ, a former Bravohead honcho and the host of “Watch What Happens Live” on the same network. Now Teresa will chat with Amy Roach (pictured right), GMA’s news anchor. Page Six states that took place at Teresa’s Montville, N.J. Township mansion and will air on February 9 which is coincidentally, the very same day her memoir, ‘Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again’ is set to be released. Perfect timing or perfect orchestration?
According to TMZ, Teresa, who has to adhere to a 10:00 pm curfew as part of her probation, nearly missed her check-in time had it not been for an Uber driver, who was willing to break speed limits to get her home and the merciful cop, who stopped but didn’t ticket them.
The old saying goes there’s three-sides to every story: your side, my side, and the truth. But when it comes to Real Housewives Of Atlanta there’s at least 63 sides to every story and probably none of them contain the truth. This season Phaedra Parks is being accused of withholding money she owes Todd Tucker over a prenatal workout video they worked on 3 years ago.
“The issue of me owing money to Todd Tucker for production of a prenatal workout video has gotten completely misrepresented and needlessly become the source of harsh feelings,” Phaedra begins in her Bravo blog. “Let me set the record straight for those who lack the necessary rudiments.”
Real Housewives of Atlanta’sKandi Burruss is hopping mad at co-starPhaedra Parks and did not mince words when she responded via Instagram and Twitter to some incendiary comments made by the attorney against her husband Todd Tucker. The Tuckers, who maintained a close relationship with Phaedra and her now incarcerated husband Apollo Nida have gravitated away from their once tight bond and all over a dispute surrounding the almighty dollar.
Apparently Todd, who is a television production manager, felt he was owed the remaining balance of $8,000 for a pregnancy video he worked on for Phaedra before Apollo’s imprisonment. Todd claims Phaedra never paid him in full and Phaedra insisted that he not only never completed the project but felt she did not owe him any more monies. Well the pair finally got together on last night’s RHOA episode to iron out any misunderstandings. Well after discussing the project and budget, Todd agreed to complete his part and Phaedra agreed, she would in turn, hand over a check to him but implied as an aside, that this will happen whenever she got around to it.
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star is planning to divorce Apollo while he is behind bars serving an 8 year sentence for fraud, even though she still has feelings for him. “I still love my husband, and I’ll always love him,” revealed Phaedra. “He’s the father of my children, and something great came from our union.”
Phaedra vows, “This has not tainted my view on love.”
TMZ is accepting collect calls from Federal Inmate Apollo Nida. Apollo answered questions about the status of his marriage (or rather, his divorce) from Phaedra Parks, staying in touch with his children, and relocating prisons. Apparently the new prison has better “ambiance”. Oh my…
Recently Apollo agreed with his Real Housewives Of Atlanta star wife that prison is no place for The Prince and Mr. President to visit. Now he’s changed his opinion.“For my own mental sanity, I tried to kind of recognize where she [Phaedra] was coming from, but I never agreed on the fact that I did not want to see my children.”
Nida didn’t mince words when he went on Instagram to let ‘er rip about his feelings towards Peter. “CRAZY WORLD RIGHT!! I GUESS IT’s TRUE THAT IN TIME ONE WILL SEE WHOM THEIR FAKE FRIENDS REALLY ARE!!” Peter apparently saw the rant and wasted no time in responding to the man, whom he still considered to be a friend stating, “Wow!! Fake friend, never that, my number hasn’t change. Still holding it down for everyone I love, including you my brother @apollonida03.”
Andy starts off by asking Phaedra about the stories that circulated recently, claiming that Apollo was being transferred to Ft. Dix, the prison Joe Giudice will be heading off to in February to serve his four year stint. She confirms that Apollo is already there.
