For the first time since Melissa Gorga joined Real Housewives of New Jersey, family feuding will not dominate the storyline. Of course, that just means there's room for other feuds! With non-family members. Oh goody.
Teresa Guidice took to Twitter and Instagram to pay tribute to her late father-in-law this weekend. As we previously reported, Joe Giudice's father passed away suddenly on June 18, while at Teresa and Joe's home.
The troubled reality star's crisis manager, Wendy Feldman, told US Weekly that "Joe and his dad were chasing the dog Simba and suddenly Franco fell ill." She also noted that they are focusing on "their family right now, especially the girls."
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?
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.
Like her or love her, no one can deny that Teresa Giudice has had one helluva an interesting life! Between her felonious husband, to her feuding family, to her experiences on Real Housewives of New Jersey, to raising Milania! to her own experiences as a soon-to-be-con, she's lived through it.
Sources say Teresa, a savvy business woman despite her pre-school vocabulary, is "working furiously" to write a shocking tell-all about her scandalous life! “She’s been approached and offered big money for her tell-all," a source reveals to Radar Online. "There are a lot of publishers who want to get her locked down and make sure they have the book in-house.”
