Joe Giudice

On the last episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, millions of viewers watched as Joe Giudice not only got drunk in his home, but also berated his wife Teresa Giudice in front of guests and called his brother-in-law a gay slur.

Fast forward to today and in usual Teresa fashion, she is now defending the actions of her husband. Teresa, who graces the latest cover of In Touch Weekly magazine with photos of her extravagant vow renewal to Joe, tells the mag despite coming off as a jerk on national television, Joe is still her Prince Charming.

“He doesn’t act for the cameras,” says Teresa (Not helping his case there Tre!) adding that deep down Joe’s really a “sweetheart.”

When asked about Joe’s “drunken bullying” on the recent episode of the RHONJ, Teresa asserts that she wasn’t hurt by the incident. “He was drunk, in his own home and upset. I get where he was coming from.”

Teresa also insists that Joe is not verbally abusive to her — but simply a guy who speaks his mind. “Joe is Joe,” she states. “You really have to know him to know it’s not malicious.” She adds, “You learn, with age, to let things bother you less and less.”

In other news, Melissa Gorga discusses the hardship of doing the RHONJ in the beginning and how she decided to join the show in an interview with The Insider. Below are excerpts from Melissa’s interview -

TheInsider.com: What’s it been like watching yourself on television?
Melissa Gorga: In the beginning it was hard, but the more I watch it, the more I enjoy it. I’m now at the point where I feel grateful that I’m getting to share my life with America. Show them how I do things. It’s a great experience and I’m eating up every minute of it.

Insider: Teresa and her husband have not said very nice things about you and your husband. Has that been hard?
Melissa: It is. We all went through it months ago so to sit there and rewatch it and find out all these new things that people said behind your back in the confessionals is hard. It’s hard not to pick up the phone and ask, “How could you say that about me?!?” But I take everything I see with a grain of salt because it was said when we were in that place. It’s always hard to go back and watch it, but we knew what we were signing up for.

Insider: Having watched Teresa go through it for two seasons, what made you want to be a part of this?
Melissa: You know, in the beginning, Joe and I weren’t sure if we wanted to do it. But because it really involved my husband’s family, I completely left the decision up to him. It was so much more personal for him, so if he said yes, we were in, if he said no, we were out. I think he knew that we had something to offer and he went for it.

Insider: The cast is about to go on a big vacation together. Can’t imagine that’s going to be good.
Melissa: Yea, we go to Punta Cana and it’s crazy. Kathy & Teresa get into a little tiff on the beach, but there’s always a lot of fun mixed in with the drama – which is the Housewives way!

And finally, following a two week hiatus, a new episode of the RHONJ airs tonight on Bravo! On the 16th episode this season titled ‘Singing in the Pain,” the wives are up and running when they participate in a charity race, with Teresa’s competitive nature on full display. Meanwhile, Melissa premieres her song to an unforgiving crowd in Hoboken. And Teresa throws a birthday bash for one of her daughters, highlighted by a jaw-dropping gift.

The episode airs at 10/9c. A preview clip is below!

Non-famewhore/Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice graces yet another cover of In Touch Weekly magazine! Except this time around, she’s in a wedding dress!

The latest In Touch cover features Teresa alongside her non-famewhore husband Joe Giudice with the heading “A Wedding To Save The Relationship.” The mag reports that despite Joe’s drunken bullying, Teresa refuses to leave him, instead opting for a second wedding.

The Giudices, who filed bankruptcy back in 2009 with over $11 million in debt, spared no expenses when it came to the fairy-tale-themed wedding, which included an odd surprise appearance by celebrity Kevin Jonas.

According to In Touch, Teresa’s big day featured everything from a horse-drawn carriage to a $25,000 Pnina Tornai wedding gown. Yes, $25,000.

“I was just so happy… marriage means for better or for worse. We’ve been through a lot, and if anything, it’s just made us stronger,” said Teresa of her second wedding to Joe at Long Island’s Oheka Castle. They originally tied the knot back in 1999. “I wanted to show my girls that marriage is really important, as is being faithful to one another.”

When it comes to their sometimes rocky relationship, Teresa acknowledges while things have gotten “heated” between Joe and her in private, they always make certain to work through their problems… in bed. “We try not to go to bed angry,” she states. “We resolve fights in bed. He’ll come in and say, ‘I love you.’”

Teresa goes on to add that despite their legal troubles and financial woes, divorce is not on the table. “I don’t think divorce is an option, unless it’s over something horrible like cheating,” she confides. “Not every day is going to be peaches and cream.”

Teresa and Joe also exchanged new rings described as “elegant bands designed by Zaven Ghanimian” during their vow renewal. The couple also enjoyed a decadent five-tiered chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream, and an extravagant floral arrangement.

And just hours ago, Teresa, who was more than likely paid for this cover story and photos by In Touch, stated she wasn’t happy with the cover. She wrote on her facebook, “Not happy about the InTouch cover title & we got married in 1999, not 2000, but I love all the pictures. 8 pages! And a Jonas Bro. Crazy! And I love love loved my Pnina Tornai gown. xx.”

Perhaps not continuing to give these interviews and pose for these photos for the same magazine over and over and over again will do the trick.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Bravo offers us a different perspective on the most infamous family feud in reality TV history, and quite possibly everything is the fault of Joe and Joe. Go figure.

Arriving at The Caroline’s parents’ house in the middle of a scary dark woods, making me think this is a Steven King movie instead of an episode of RHoNJ — Caroline explains that Chris Laurita has started a mysterious new business that produces something mysterious and all the employees will be her blessed boys and some other rando nephew who will be setting up office in her parents’ old house.

A new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is set to air tonight, and once again it’s Giudice vs. Gorga!

However, it’s not Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga fueling the drama this time around, but rather Joe Giudice. In the preview clip below, Joe Gorga reveals his brother-in-law sent him a threatening text message asking him not to come to Teresa’s book signing. Teresa was the one who invited her brother and Melissa by the way.

According to J. Gorga, the text read: “So nice of you and your fake wife to support your sister tonight for the first time. Yous are so fake it makes me ill… I’ll break your jaw. I’ll wire it shut.” J. Gorga also adds that Joe referred to him as a word that was bleeped out in the clip. In another preview clip, it sounds like J. Giudice might have used a gay slur that begins with a letter F. Not certain on that however. No word yet on how Teresa’s going to try to clean this one up.

Also coming up on the 15th episode this season titled “Black as Ink,” Caroline’s pride spills over when her two sons set out to launch their bottled-water line. Meanwhile, Lauren’s grand opening for her cosmetic venture brings Jacqueline together with her daughter.

The episode airs on Bravo at 10/9c and a preview clip is below!

In other RHONJ news, a week after it was revealed her dad and step mom were arrested on charges ranging from arson to money laundering, Ashley Holmes is once again defending her parents.

Earlier this year, Matt Holmes Texas home caught on fire garnering him a $429,000 check from the insurance company. Months later, cops revealed a “credible witness” came forward stating Matt started the fire with kerosene and gasoline. Investigators had already suspected arson so Matt was arrested for arson, insurance fraud, and money laundering while his wife Jodi Holmes was arrested for money laundering as well. You can read more about that here.

Ashley, who has now decided to start going by Ashlee, posted the following on her twitter page yesterday -

“As most of you know my dad &step mom are going through a VERY hard time right now.. they are not allowed to comment on anything at this time.. but those of you that are close to us know the truth.. the media is eating them alive and of course are saying MANY things that are untrue.. It’s so hard not to be able to tell our side of this, but we will soon! We’re leaving it in Gods hands now & we know that everything will be ok…Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers..xo thank you.”

Meanwhile, as we reported earlier this week, Ashley has moved to California! She made the move days ago and later blogged that she got an internship. “I have an internship waiting there for me with Buzznet & Celebuzz. I recently formed my own LLC. I’m currently working on my own clothing line that I hope to launch by 2012. I am working on building my own website… I am also writing a book,” she wrote.

Fans of the show who keep up with the RHONJ on twitter noticed this week that most, if not all, of the cast took a trip to California. We have to wonder if this has anything to do with Ashley. Only time will tell as Bravo is currently filming the 4th season of the show.

And finally, Ashley made the following tweet just moments ago about former RHONJ star Danielle Staub: “LOL guess who keeps trying to contact my boss @LizzieGrubman BEGGING her to rep her…. ? what a joke #clown #notgonnahappen.” The drama never ends.

In last nights installment of Real Housewives of New Jersey it’s another round of the feud that never ends (it just goes on and on, my friends), as Teresa and Melissa engage in sister-in-lawemy behavior with behind the back comments and to the face fracas. Kathy hosts a goddess get-together to debut her catering ideas, but Teresa decides that she is the only goddess there, so the party becomes allll about her! Jacqueline and Ashley argue, and argue, and argue some more until Chris reaches his breaking point! Oh, and no Joe G-to-the-orga this episode – so happy days!

Things pick up where Hat-ley and Jacqueline left off last week. In an extremely emotional scene, Jacqueline is sobbing in the basement of the restaurant while Chris tries to console her. Jacqueline asks the questions millions of viewers have been screaming at the TV for 2.5 seasons: Why are they letting Ashley have free room and board when she treats us like crap? Exaaaactly, Lauritas, exaaaactly!

According to a report by Life & Style magazine, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is facing jail time.

And as expected, this all has to do with her ongoing bankruptcy legal drama. See back in 2009, Teresa and hubby Joe Giudice filed bankruptcy to the tune of over $11 million in debt. However, almost a year later, their bankruptcy trustees alleged that Teresa knowingly withheld assets, including a $250,000 advance for her best-seller Skinny Italian and a business bank account.

An offense lawyers reveal could easily land her in prison for six months to a year. In fact, in unusual Teresa fashion, she actually spoke to the mag about the bankruptcy case. “I wish I could make this all go away,” admitted a clearly shaken Teresa, who insists any omissions were accidental, “but all I can do is take this one day at a time.”

Legal experts however add that Teresa, 39, is living on borrowed time. She and Joe were originally due to appear in court to face allegations of bankruptcy fraud on July 14, but the proceedings have now been postponed, giving her extra time before she faces the possibility of being torn from her daughters.

And unfortunately for Teresa, an attorney say it’s her own fault, even if she didn’t intend to commit a crime. “Teresa had her book contract a week before bankruptcy papers were filed but waited until a month after to sign it.” notes New Jersey lawyer Eric Lubin, who isn’t involved with the case.

“It seems as though she was avoiding signing the contract so that the money would come to her after the bankruptcy petition was filed. How could anyone forget that they have $250,000 coming to them?” In bankruptcy, everything a debtor owns before filing goes toward paying off debts. Anything earned after filing, the debtor can keep.

Meanwhile, bankruptcy trustees have also raised questions about $100,000 in deposits associated with Teresa’s online boutique, TGFabulicious.com. Because of that, Teresa “could be looking at life-altering consequences here,” cautions James Leonard, another New Jersey lawyer.

As for Teresa, she continues to keep her head up high while the legal drama looms on. “I’ve worked hard to brand myself,” she tells Life & Style. “I have no fears… Hopefully everything is going to be good,” adds Teresa.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS REPORT? DO YOU THINK TERESA KNOWINGLY WITHHELD ASSETS OR WAS IT AN INNOCENT MISTAKE?

Another day, another Teresa Giudice In Touch Weekly magazine cover!

This time around, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star poses for the mag with one of her daughters, and grants them an exclusive interview to discuss her finances today and most importantly her fear of going broke… again.

As you may recall, Teresa and her hubby Joe Giudice filed bankruptcy 2 years ago to the tune of $11 million in debt. Teresa once again claims she was kept in the dark about her finances which were being handled by Joe. “Most couples would have gotten a divorce,” Teresa tells In Touch. “In most cases, people would have fallen apart,” agrees Joe. “But we are strong.”

Teresa, who can be seen on recent episodes of the RNONJ driving a Benz and wearing Christian Louboutin boots, goes on to reveal she and Joe have learned their lesson citing they have cut back on their extravagant lifestyle. “I don’t try to keep up with the Joneses anymore,” shares Teresa who has also been shown on the Bravo hit show having hairstylists come into her home to do her hair. “Sometimes, I do my own hair and makeup. I spend within my means,” she adds.

As for their finances today, the Giudices, who are “terrified of being poor,” assure us they are now very careful in how they spend their money. Joe’s new motto? “It isn’t how much money you make, it’s how much you save.”

Teresa adds that she has “no credit card debt” today. “I live a simple life,” Joe shares. “I shop at outlets and buy things cheap.” Joe also denies he is sponging off Teresa as a report that came out weeks ago stated he had sold his pizza place and was no longer working. “I am not living off Teresa,” he fumes. “I got money. What we are doing now is working together.”

You can read more of Teresa and Joe’s interview in the current issue of In Touch.
