Teresa‘s absence is the perfect excuse, IMO, to put the show out of its misery.
Andy Cohen recently addressed the issue on Ask Me Anything on Reddit, “We have not made any plans relating to the future of the Jersey Housewives. We’ll go back and meet and talk and re-evaluation soon.”
It’s too little, too late, but legendary financial guru Suze Orman is administering some advice to legendary financial frauder Teresa Giudice! Like, remember that penny you found in the bathroom at the Real Housewives Of New Jersey reunion? Save it! Like, duh!
I kid. Most specifically Suze is advising all women – based on what happened to Teresa – not to blindly allow their husbands to control the money. Know what is going on in your family’s finances. As you recall, Teresa and Joe Giudice have both claimed he was the ‘mastermind’ (AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!) behind their 41 count financial fraud indictment and Teresa was just an innocent player in signing her name to whatever document he put in front of her!
“It’s a prime example for women, that if they don’t think the behaviors of somebody that they are involved with financially-speaking is going to affect them, I’m here to tell them they’d better watch what’s happening,” Suze states, explaining the situation Teresa found herself in, leading to a prison sentence and her businesses to collapse as a result of the negative publicity.
Last night was the second installment of the Real Housewives Of New Jersey reunion. I don’t want to go into the stupidness that is stupid Teresa Giudice and her stupid financial nonsense and stupid decisions that made her go to jail. I mean damn, read what you sign, ask questions if you don’t understand – hello!
The most laughable comment from the whole reunion was Teresa trying to convince us that she’s usually a very conscientious-y type of person who “always dots her ‘I’s and crosses her ‘T’s.” First of all, she knows two letters in the alphabet? Bet they were both used a lot in the PLEA AGREEMENT Teresa didn’t read, but signed. Second of all, if you were a routine “i” dotter or a “t” crosser you’d not get indicted for bankruptcy fraud or sign fake W-2s because you’d actually make sure the people you hire, like your accountant, are doing their jobs! And finally – I’m frankly surprised Teresa was able to use that expression correctly. I would fully expect her to say something like “I’m the type-a person who crosses eyes and dots my teacup, with you know, fabulicious teas – coming soon!”
Let’s just say this, Denial is the longest river in New Jersey. The river of denial flows right out of Melissa Gorga‘s $3.8 million Montville mansion (where they had the big ol’ plumbing disaster and the leaky pipes and the plastic sink) and it roars down the hill into the chicken coops of Teresa and Joe’s purloined marble encrusted converted trailer, built at the base of Mount Tackiola. Now for sale, delusion included in purchase price!
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 family photos from the past few weeks.
Above: Kendra Wilkinson shared a picture of Hank and Alijah at the pumpkin patch, adding, “My life.”
Awwww…. making those memories Giucy fan! In this case, Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice celebrated their last anniversary before one of them hits the slammer; Teresa to serve 15 months, followed by Juicy serving 41 months. Memmmmmmmrreeeeees, misty fabellini colored memmmmmmmrieeeeeeeees of the way we were!
Teresa announced on instagram that she and Joe celebrated 15 years of felonious bliss. “Celebrated our 15 yr Anniversary 10/23/99 With the Love of my Life,” Teresa captioned the photo of her looking all “Everything’s FIIIIIIINE!!!” and Joe looking all, “Where’s the wiiiiiine?!” #GimmeBoozeYouOldTroll
Noticeably missing from the reaction shots were Dina Manzo, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga. Melissa took to her blog to explain why she didn’t let cameras into her home that day and throw a little shade at those who did.
Addressing the fans of the show, Melissa said, “We’ve been through so much together throughout the years. It’s not always easy being on reality TV. I’m not complaining, because obviously I signed up for it, but there are times I wish I could turn it on and off. Unfortunately I don’t have that option, so here we are.”
In the first one Teresa attempts to explain what she meant by “I don’t understand why this is happening to us.” She also tries to plead her case about her respect for the law and how she’s going to pay back the $400,000. In the second video they take a few calls from viewers. And she goes on and on again with the ‘victim’ stance of how the biggest lesson she learned from this whole mess is to never sign things without asking an attorney to explain them. She also talks about how this is just a blip in time and they’ll get through this and move on with life.
After Teresa was sentenced and all the bigwigs sat around wondering what to do now, I was like, “Um, FIRE HER?!?” I mean, seriously! I was not shocked, however, to learn that a pink slip wasn’t on the list of options.
