Joe Giudice

Joe Giudice on RHONJ

Another day, another Giudice drama! This time Joe Giudice, who has been cooling his heels in prison after a money fraud situation went terribly awry, has been barred from the prison’s alcohol abuse treatment program over his immigration status.

Despite living in America since he was a baby, and marrying American citizen Teresa Giudice, Joe never completed his citizenship requirements and is currently eligible for deportation once his 41 month prison sentence ends. Last year Joe entered Fort Dix correctional facility and was placed in a special unit for substance abuse. At his sentencing hearing, the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star told the judge that he his drinking was out of control as a result of the legal issues, Teresa’s prison sentence, and the sudden loss of his father

As expected, there’s another story circulating about the state of Teresa Giudice’s marriage right after the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 trailer is released. Once again, a “source”  is claiming (again) that her marriage is in trouble.

At this point this is a headline every few months. Nevertheless, there is never any new information and the source is either anonymous or the infamous Kim D, yet this rumor always makes headlines and Teresa always denies the story.

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!”

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.
