Teresa Giudice was pulling out all the last-minute stops to get out of her impending 15 month fraud sentence, including having her new attorney petition the judge to let her serve 12 months of her sentence in a halfway house. But today a judge said No way – you did the crime, now you do the time!
The prosecution immediately opposed the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star’s petition and Judge Esther Salas agreed. She told Teresa she will not recommend that she serve the bulk of her sentence in anything less than a prison.
Her main reason is, like with everything else, Teresa’s disorganization shot her in the foot! The judge told Teresa that she and her former defense attorneys (the ones Teresa implied didn’t do their jobs) should have made that request at her October 2nd sentencing instead of weeks later by letter. Of course. at that time, Teresa believed she wouldn’t do time. Oops.
“We made it Housewife friends!” cheered Amber. “As it was my rookie season, I felt like I was being hazed in a sorority, but as hard as it was, I made it!”
“I learned so much about how strong I am as a person and some areas that I can work on. I learned that I really do have a ‘no surrender, never retreat’ mentality. I will go to bat with anyone, at any time, and will defend myself and my family at all cost. I also witnessed the undying love that my husband has for me and his family. He was not going to let anyone hurt me and will unleash hell if someone tries. He is truly my modern day Spartan warrior.”
Rumor has it RHONJ season 7 has already started filming so they can capture Teresa Giudice as she heads to prison, and then focus on Joe Giudice as he tries to juggle a life without Teresa. And apparently, Jacqueline has signed on again so she can… talk about Teresa?! I mean, that’s been her storyline for like 4 seasons now, basically ever since Danielle Staub left when Jacqueline’s storyline was to talk about her.
Noticeably missing from the reaction shots were Dina Manzo, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga. Melissa took to her blog to explain why she didn’t let cameras into her home that day and throw a little shade at those who did.
Addressing the fans of the show, Melissa said, “We’ve been through so much together throughout the years. It’s not always easy being on reality TV. I’m not complaining, because obviously I signed up for it, but there are times I wish I could turn it on and off. Unfortunately I don’t have that option, so here we are.”
The two have been sparring for a while but they really got into it at the RHONJ reunion. And then Dina and Jim really, really got into it on twitter! It got so intense that Dina has stated she will not return to the show.
The latest drama started when Jim started making accusations bout Dina’s charity Project Ladybug.
After Teresa was sentenced and all the bigwigs sat around wondering what to do now, I was like, “Um, FIRE HER?!?” I mean, seriously! I was not shocked, however, to learn that a pink slip wasn’t on the list of options.
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!
