Well, folks, the controversial three-part series catching up with the Giudice family since Teresa Giudice’sJanuary incarceration is here. Who’s watching? Since we here at RT pledge to bring you the latest reality news – whatever that news may be – we’ll be recapping the Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In each week. Admittedly, this series has a lot of us questioning just how far Bravo will go to expose/support/capitalize on the misdeeds and fallout of Joeand Teresa’s crimes, as well as the sad after-effects these crimes have had on their four daughters: Gia (14), Gabriella (10), Milania (9), and Audriana (5). So, let’s take a look at how this all shakes out…
In our first shot, we’re told the series was filmed six months into Teresa’s prison sentence. Joe, who is currently without a driver’s license (due to previous suspension) counts on his side of the family to help out with the bulk of carting his daughters around, and for emotional support. As he prepares breakfast for the girls, Milania steps in to cooks the sausages. Joe says this has been the hardest year of his life with the passing of his father and Teresa’s imprisonment. He thinks Teresa is proud of his efforts at home, though, because if not, she would have probably sent him divorce papers by now.
14-year-old Gia Giudice, the eldest of Teresa and Joe Giudice‘s 4 daughters, is very aware of all the changes taking place in her life. As her mother prepares to return home from a year-long prison stint, Gia’s father Joe prepares to ‘go away’ to federal prison for 41 months. Following that Joe could face deportation as he is not a US Citizen.
“It could be worse,” acknowledges Gia; trying to keep a positive attitude. “My mom doesn’t want me or anyone to get emotional, so I try my best just to keep it all together.”
Teresa Giudiceis still serving her prison sentence, after being convicted of fraud over one year ago, and while she’s been locked up, her husband Joe has had to take care of the household. That includes making the money, which is why Joe and the kids will be seen in their own spin-off very soon. But just because she’s in the slammer, doesn’t mean that Teresa hasn’t been thinking about her next paycheck.
In fact, rumors have been buzzing for some time about whether or not Giudice would be heading back to The Real Housewives of New Jersey once she is released. But it appears that is not all that Giudice has been planning – she’s also planning to do a post prison interview. And in typical Giudice fashion, she is also planning to cash in big time for the interview!

It’s no secret that Lance Bass has been besties with Lisa Vanderpump for some time now, having made cameos here and there on both Vanderpump Rules and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now Lance is spreading his Housewives wings and weighing in on his faves across the franchises, as well as what he hopes to see in the future (anyone up for Lance’s hubby as the first male “housewife,” he wonders? Yes, please!)
Lance reveals, “I was a huge Real Housewives of Atlanta fan at the beginning. And now I’m a huge Beverly Hills fan, and I’m kind of a newbie fan of New York.” Although he’s branching out with his viewership, Lance admits that for now, “Beverly Hills has my heart.” Well, no surprise there! “Lisa [Vanderpump] definitely is one of my besties. It’s real fun to be able to watch and know someone on the show. But it’s also nice to know a lot of the backstory that other people don’t see. It’s really interesting because, to me, it’s like my own personal reality show,” explains Lance.
Danielle Staub was all about creating waves (um, tsunamis?) when she appeared on the early seasons of Real Housewives of New Jersey. I’d venture a guess that she paved the way for all other housewives villains, but Danielle was certainly the original when she went up against the Manzo-Laurita clan. Of course, dare I say she’s having the last laugh as the ladies continue to battle, no longer having her to blame as the scape goat?
The prostitution whore author, singer, and one time lady pond dipper, peaced out from RHONJ to focus on her two daughters, leaving a table-flipping Teresa Giudice in her wake. She’s remained relatively quiet (for an ex-housewife, at least!) over the years, but Danielle is now revealing that her “love and light” philosophy has extended to her romantic life. The one time pot-stirrer has settled into a drama free life with her new fiance Joseph Masalta.
