Joe Giudice

Teresa Giudice - Standing Strong Memoir

There’s never a dull moment in Teresa Giudice‘s life. Less than a year after being released from federal prison, Teresa suffered the tragic loss of her mother Antonia and the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star admits that nothing she’s endured has been harder than this. 

Teresa has been working through her grief with yoga and writing. She recently shared more details about her upcoming memoir, Standing Strong, which is about finding her way back to herself and figuring out how to handle not only Joe Giudice‘s prison sentence, but also her mother’s unexpected passing by finding zen and learning to rely on Joe and Melissa Gorga.

To say that Teresa Giudice has had a tough year would definitely be an understatement. Whether you’re a fan of hers or not, you have to admit that she’s gone through a lot. She is a single parent now that her husband Joe Giudice is serving his prison sentence for fraud, her mother passed away, and I’m sure that she is dealing with a lot of drama as a Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member.

The one bright side of all this is that she has a lot of material to work with, not only for a reality TV show, but also for another book.

Teresa Giudice & Joe Gorga Restaurant

Well, they have gone from keeping everything OUT of the family, to keeping everything in the family. Teresa Giudice recently opened “Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza” with Joe and Melissa Gorga. Stranger things, right?

With Joe Giudice in prison, it seems like the whole Real Housewives of New Jersey fambly came together like an everything-on-it pizza. Poison revealed he is in communication with his incarcerated brother-in-law. Should I be awaiting some sort of fambly food fight? “Joe’s doing good,” Poison shared. “He is doing his thing. He is working out a lot and looking great!”

RHONJ Teresa Giudice Instagram - mom

It is with a heavy heart that I write that Teresa Giudice’s mother has passed away. Y’all know I love this job, as it’s fun to snark on the world of reality television stars, but, as with this post, we are often reminded that they aren’t just present for our entertainment and amusement. Regardless of their attitudes, their flaws, their ridiculous quirks, or their over-the-top personalities, reality stars are actually real people who experience highs, lows, loves, and losses just like the rest of us.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star encapsulates so much of what we love to hate, hate to watch, and are mesmerized by thanks to her opulent lifestyle, unabashed and unapologetic relationships with family and friends, countless legal woes, and prison terms. However, at her core, Teresa is just a woman who lost someone so incredibly near and dear to her, and I feel horribly that she has to go through it. Coming on the heels of so much other drama in her life, it must be shattering to her.

Just over a year after being released from her time “at camp,” Real Housewives Of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has reportedly paid off the big chunk of change owed the government from her unlawful activities.

Teresa has paid in full the $414,581 restitution fine she and husband Joe Giudice were slapped with in their 2014 court case, which found both Giudices guilty of tax fraud. Since that time, Teresa’s wages have been garnished to pay the sum. One can assume that those wages have largely come from Bravo – or from Teresa’s memoir about life behind bars, Turning The Tables, From Housewife To Inmate And Back Again, which inexplicably became a NY Times bestseller last year.

Joe goes to prison

Aside from Teresa Giudice bragging about how much weight Joe Giudice has lost in prison and the fact that he wrote her a song that he wanted John Legend to sing, we haven’t heard too many specific updates about Joe’s life behind bars. But now it is being reported that the father of four has a new job working at the prison gym.

I’m not exactly sure what Joe is doing at the gym, but he is allegedly making $100 a month for the work. Plus, I assume that he can work out in between his shifts, so this seems like a good move on many fronts.

Brooks Ayers fires back at Vicki Gunvalson's daughter

Unfortunately for the ladies, the cast members of Real Housewives don’t always have the best boyfriends and husbands. Sometimes that makes for good TV and other times it’s just genuinely sad to watch and hear about. Nevertheless, there are Real Housewives husbands and fathers that you would never want to date if you had the chance – at least in my opinion.

These dudes are the worst of the worst: from the cheaters to the jail birds to the fame hungry. These are not the kind of men that you would want to be with, but they managed to end up with reality TV’s finest (and some of them did make for better reality TV viewing).

There have been some infamous Christmas moments on Real Housewives of New Jersey over the years. From Teresa Giudice throwing Melissa Gorga’s sprinkle cookies in the garbage, to the the two sisters-in-law ending their feud, this holiday has always been a big deal to Teresa. The viewers know how much the queen of RHONJ lives for Christmas and I’m sure that a lot of them are curious about how she is going to celebrate the holiday while her husband Joe Giudice is in jail.

I will never forget Teresa’s emotional homecoming perfectly timed with Christmas celebrations last year, but I have to assume that this year is going to be a way less happy occasion.
