Well, it looks like Apollo Nida is the only RH star that will be sentenced for fraud charges on July 8th! The U.S. Attorney's office confirmed today that sentencing for The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Joe and Teresa Giudice has been pushed back to September 23rd, 2014.
The move has nothing to do with yesterday's death of Joe's dad Frank. The U.S. attorney's office confirms that the schedule change is due to an administrative issue and Rebekah Carmichael of the U.S. Attorney's Office shared, "It was not moved because of any other factor."
Joe Giudice's dad, Frank Giudice, died this afternoon at the age of 63, reportedly of a heart attack.
Reports are coming in which claim that Frank was building a chicken coop in the backyard and collapsed, and passed away on the scene. No other details are available at this time.
Our thoughts are with Teresa and the Giudice family. This has been a rough year for the family. Granted, they brought the legal drama upon themselves, but those poor girls are facing losing their parents for a few (or more) years and now they've lost a beloved grandfather, too.
As the Giudices are less than a month away from their sentencing hearings both are embracing denial in a different way. For Joe Giudice he is using his precious time to party and possibly cheat!
It's all but certain that Joe will serve jail time related to their 2013 fraud indictment and instead of staying home to cherish the moments, he's out on the town and "ignoring" his family. And Teresa Giudice is not happy! You know what they say: psychotic wife, unhappy life!
“Teresa feels like Joe should be spending every minute that he can with her and their four girls, but he’s still doing his own thing, doing stuff with the guys and she’s getting really frustrated,” a source confided to Radar Online. "She doesn’t understand why he can’t just stay home with their girls and with her. She wants to know why he’s ignoring them." Well, would you want to spend time with Teresa?
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 photos from this week! Enjoy!
It seems like Joe Giudice should just resign himself to spending a looooong, looooong time behind bars! Besides awaiting sentencing for his federal fraud case, Joe still has not settled his case in New Jersey for identity fraud! Aaaaahhh…. the felonious Fraudices.
NorthJersey.com reports that Joe spent his day in his home away from home on Monday – a NJ courtroom – for a "status hearing" as he and lawyers attempted to iron out a last-minute plea bargain. Joe has a pre-trial date set for July 14.
Could this be Joe Giudice's last birthday of freedom? Too mean to joke at a time like this? Aaahhh… it's my job!
Anyway, Juicy Joe, my favorite Neanderthalian (I know it's not a real word) Real Housewives of New Jersey husband just, celebrated his birthday with a low-key dinner that included Teresa Giudice and his four daughters.
Teresa shared some photos on twitter of the family. I have to say, good for T-money for resisting the urge to splash out on a big fancy party, I mean given that this could be Joe's last birthday out before he goes "away".
Above, Teresa captioned the photo "Happy Birthday to my Love…"
They say you can't take it with you, so you might as well spend it, right? That seems to be the Giudice's train of thought at least. The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple doesn't seem the least bit faced by the umpteen fraud charges and potential jail time they are facing. Instead, Teresa and Juicywant to make sure that everyone knows they are still the highest rollers in the Garden State…at least as far as their Bravo counterparts are concerned!
The pair recently celebrated daughter Milania's first communion, and Tre and Joe spared no expense at the after-party which included a custom gown for the guest of honor and–thankfully–no family drama. Teresa's sister-in-law (and former nemesis) Melissa Gorga even shared pictures of the happy occasion on Instagram. At least that's a plus!
The couple is still hoping Teresa will be able to avoid jail time and in the meantime are putting on a happy front. With Real Housewives of New Jersey starting days after Teresa's sentence is handed down, one of Bravo's most recognizable stars has been suspiciously absent from any network events – even skipping the Upfronts. (Somewhere Melissa Gorga is doing a happy dance that she is finally number 1! Let's hope Poison didn't take any business tips from his brother-in-law.
