Well, folks, the controversial three-part series catching up with the Giudice family since Teresa Giudice’sJanuary incarceration is here. Who’s watching? Since we here at RT pledge to bring you the latest reality news – whatever that news may be – we’ll be recapping the Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In each week. Admittedly, this series has a lot of us questioning just how far Bravo will go to expose/support/capitalize on the misdeeds and fallout of Joeand Teresa’s crimes, as well as the sad after-effects these crimes have had on their four daughters: Gia (14), Gabriella (10), Milania (9), and Audriana (5). So, let’s take a look at how this all shakes out…
In our first shot, we’re told the series was filmed six months into Teresa’s prison sentence. Joe, who is currently without a driver’s license (due to previous suspension) counts on his side of the family to help out with the bulk of carting his daughters around, and for emotional support. As he prepares breakfast for the girls, Milania steps in to cooks the sausages. Joe says this has been the hardest year of his life with the passing of his father and Teresa’s imprisonment. He thinks Teresa is proud of his efforts at home, though, because if not, she would have probably sent him divorce papers by now.
14-year-old Gia Giudice, the eldest of Teresa and Joe Giudice‘s 4 daughters, is very aware of all the changes taking place in her life. As her mother prepares to return home from a year-long prison stint, Gia’s father Joe prepares to ‘go away’ to federal prison for 41 months. Following that Joe could face deportation as he is not a US Citizen.
“It could be worse,” acknowledges Gia; trying to keep a positive attitude. “My mom doesn’t want me or anyone to get emotional, so I try my best just to keep it all together.”
This weekend Joe’s Jersey Shore neighbor called the police on him after the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star was reportedly heard screaming at his eldest daughter Gia. Of course other sources claim that although Joe was screaming at a family member it certainly wasn’t his 14-year-old daughter!
It looks like that fabled Real Housewives Of New Jersey spinoff is becoming more and more of a reality everyday! Last week Andy Cohen insisted he had no knowledge ofJoe Giudice filming a special with his daughters about their lives while Teresa Giudice is in prison. Buuuut no one believed him! And it appears Joe is filming much more than a brief update, but a full-on series!
While mom’s away, the kids will play! It’s a Gorga-Giudice pool party! Real Housewives of New Jersey fans have been wondering if Teresa Giudice’s kids were seeing their cousins, Joe and Melissa Gorga’s kids, while she’s in prison. It looks like we now know the answer!
Melissa posted this photo of all seven kids – Gia, Gabriella, Milania, Audriana, Antonia, Gino and Joey – on Instagram, writing “Cousin Love.” It so great to see the kids having a blast together. I have a feeling that they probably see each other more than we know, but keep it off of social media.
Teresa Giudice wants the world to know she supports the Supreme Court’s ruling to make same-sex marriage a right nationwide, and she’s taking to Twitter (via Gia) to prove it. “Finally some good news coming out of a court! #Justice&Equality4All #LoveWins,” Tre tweeted Saturday after the landmark ruling was announced June 26.
Teresa’s followers responded with a mix of praise and scorn for the ongoing Twitter activity the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is engaging in from prison. “@Teresa_Giudice prison must not be too bad if you’re tweeting. Must be nice to be a ‘celebrity’ in ‘prison’. u should not have access,” commented one follower.

Teresa Giudice caused quite a stir on Sunday when a tweet popped up on her personal Twitter account. “Thank you everyone for all of the cards, letters, and kind words of support,” the tweet read. “I love, love, love you all. XO, T!”
Many wondered, is the Real Housewives of New Jersey star getting special privileges in prison? Or is a friend/family member tweeting on Teresa‘s behalf? Teresa’s lawyer, James Leonard Jr, came forward to clear up the confusion.
