Lordy the saga that of felonious Teresa Giudice never ends! This morning Teresa’s crisis PR representative Wendy Feldman fired her because Teresa refused to follow her advice, and allegedly took it upon herself to write a letter to the judge begging for a prison assignment at Danbury Federal Prison in Connecticut. And even worse – Teresa is now attempting to serve the bulk of her sentence in a halfway house under a seldom used Second Chance Act!
First Teresa’a attorney sent a letter to Judge Salas requesting clarification of the judge’s “language” during sentencing, explaining that it wasn’t explicitly clear if she was recommending a prison camp or detention center.
Oh Teresa Giudice… remember when you promised to be a better person? And to learn from your mistakes through this whole legal tribulation? Well, ummm… we’re still waiting! Teresa has parted ways with her crisis PR manager Wendy Feldman after she submitted a letter to Judge Salas requesting Danbury Federal Prison to serve her 15 months.
“Sadly, my time with Teresa and has come to an end,” Wendy said in a statement. “My client relationships are very important to me, however today’s filing regarding Teresa’s Bureau of Prisons designation request was not done with my knowledge or input.”
According to Wendy the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star worked with someone else – Juicy?! – to submit a letter to the judge asking that she be placed at Danbury in Connecticut, where Piper Kerman the author of Orange Is The New Black served her time. Good lord – Teresa probably thinks of herself as the new Piper!
When last we left Caroline Manzo on Manzo’d With Children, her kids were having a knock-down drag-out fight, regarding her eldest son’s new lady love, Brittany, and how his little sister, Lauren Manzo did not approve. Well, actually, “did not approve,” is putting it kindly.
The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star, on the other hand had a pretty realistic — which is why we love her — approach to the whole situation. “I get very upset when my kids fight, but it’s part of the growing process of family life. They are a necessary evil. I’d rather my kids argue than dismiss each other’s feelings and let resentment fester without communication. I won’t say too much more until next week. The saga continues and Al and I step in. Things get interesting.”
Interesting indeed, read on to see how Caroline put an end to the drama, plus she also explains why exactly she shaves her face…
Victoria’s rep Steve Honig reached out to share that she did NOT get paid for her guest appearance on the show. “Victoria did not get paid for her appearance on RHONJ, so she didn’t do anything for money. ” He continued, “And as far as her being a liar, well, we have a polygraph test that says otherwise.”
It turns out when Kim told Poison Gorga she runs with the big the boys, she wasn’t lying – her man is New Jersey’s infamous “King of Con” Thomas Giacomaro! Thomas just got out of prison after serving time for bilking investors out of $73 million dollars! And now he’s ready for the next phase: working on a book, movie deal and television show about his legendary life. “Hundreds of millions of dollars went through my hands,” Thomas bragged. “It makes ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ look like he stole a pocketbook.”
Andy commented and asked Teresa Aprea if she felt bad about her scene with the “clink clink” karma diss, saying she took a lot of heat over it on Twitter for “kicking”Teresa Giudice when she’s down. Teresa A says she did feel bad and that the two of them are okay at the moment. “I did apologize. It came from a place of anger. It was mean, it was a little harsh. So, I did apologize and I did address the situation.” Teresa G sees the clip for the first time at the reunion and Teresa Aprea admits that Tre was pissed.
I don’t mean to be negative but compared to previous seasons this one was kind of weak sauce, no? I mean, Fabellini has more sparkle than last night’s finale did. And dare I say it, it’s far less tacky!
Really – what could possibly be more tacky than having your boobs, butt, and midriff hangout at a charity fashion show for children with cancer?! Oh wait – trying to start a fight at one… while your boobs threaten to pop out of your Posche clearance special gown! When you get a reputation for running out of stores without paying for the clothes, I suppose you get stuck with the Posche end of the season leftover sale! Pass the Dunkin’ Donuts – the twins and their DDs are out to play.
It’s also the first time Bravo has recycled a Housewife by bringing Dina Manzo back from the dead as an official Housewife. And poor Dina – what a mistake that seems like it was for our zen princess! Tonight Dina will try to inject a little positivity into the show when she hosts a Project Ladybug fashion show to raise money for children with cancer.
But SOME PEOPLE – some people like the Troublemint Trashbag Twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano decide to cause trouble when the confront Teresa at the event because they blame her for a little rumor that’s been spreading around. A little rumor started by Victoria Gotti who revealed that Rino, Teressssssa’s hubby, slept with his mother-in-law, Teresssssssa’s mama! That’s gotta make for an awkward game of Family Feud!
