It looks like Teresa will be spending her Real Housewives Of New Jersey paycheck before she’s even earned it. In October the IRS filed a lien against Teresa and Joe Giudice seeking recoupment for nine years of unpaid tax bills.
Jim’s panties have been in a bunch since, well, since the day we met him. But, in relation to this story, since Teresa Checks In aired. One of his many issues is that RHONJseason 7 is on hold. “It is BS that the entire cast, especially my wife, had their filming put on hold because Tre and Joe committed several felonies and [Teresa is] sitting in jail,” said the man who recently tweeted, “We are not coming back, do not need money or want fame.” So, he cares, why?!
It seems like we blinked, and just like that, the finale of the Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa ChecksIn is here. We laughed, we cried. In a brief moral crisis, we wondered why we were laughing and crying (maybe that was just me?). But it all comes to a close now, as Teresa Giudice checks in for the last time on national TV before she is released in December from Danbury Correctional Facility.
Since Teresa has been locked up, Joe Guidice has been running the household. Which means he has been spending 100% of his time trying to control Tropical Storm Milania. After fixing a clogged sink for cutie-patootie Audriana, Joe heads outside where Milania is feeding rocks to the pond fish (because she spilled all of their food on the ground). Gabriellais attempting to discipline Milania, but she gives up quickly, knowing it’s a futile battle. Joe Gorga comments that he has to hand it to Juicy for taking care of these 4 little girls because “they’re not just normal girls; they’re tough!”
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 lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some our favorite snapshots and selfies from the week. Enjoy.
Fans still care a whole lot about Teresa Giudice’sfamily and The Real Housewives of New Jersey, apparently! Preliminary viewer numbers are in for part 1 of the three part special, Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In showcasing how her family is coping while she’s in prison – and they’re not too shabby!
The RHONJ: Teresa Checks Inspecial pulled in 1.2 million viewers on Sunday night in its first airing (Bravo normally counts several same-day airings to get their own final numbers). For comparison’s sake: Manzo’d with Children had just 910,000 viewers (and only 719,000 last week).
During their bankruptcy proceedings (which led to their federal indictment and imprisonment) Teresa and Joe were allowed to retain possession of the home because they owed more than it was worth. Unfortunately with all their other financial issues the couple couldn’t make the mortgage payments of $10,679 per month and as of December 2014, lapsed into foreclosure. Again.
With their house in foreclosure, Teresa and Joe have been trying to sell at $2.99 million with no takers. Apparently no one wants to live in the fraudulently gilded remains of failed delusions of grandeur. Last week the indebted Real Housewives Of New Jersey couple attempted to contest the bank’s foreclosure proceedings, but had their request denied.
Filed under “Truly Horrifying Thoughts,” Andy admits he recently dreamed that Teresa Giudice was the Vice President of the United States. <whole body shudder> “I emailed her, and she said, ‘You know, you never know. Your dream might come true.'”
Andy tells Joe that Teresa plans to watch the show from prison (how nice) and asks if he wants to say anything to her. “Hello, baby, I love you,” he says. “You know what your brother asked me to do before we came on?! He told me to kiss him. I told him to kiss my ass.”
