The drama surrounding the Giudice’s legal matters continues to unfold. Joe Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison, followed by two years of supervised release. Teresa Giudice landed herself 15 months. During the course of the Giudice’s fraud indictment it emerged that despite living in the US for the majority of his life, and being married to a US citizen, Joe isn’t one himself, and therefore faces deportation after he serves his time.
Joe’s immigration attorney, Jerard Gonzalez, says that proceedings for a possible deportation will not begin until after Joe’s sentence is completed, however experts connected to ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) said that officials could decide to expedite proceedings at any time – even while the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is still behind bars!
“They could come pick him up tomorrow. I doubt they would do that,” says immigration attorney Edward Shulma (who is not connected to Joe’s case).“They want them to do most of the time.”
Dina is ready to move on from the Florida trip too. She kept her blog short and sweet this week, poking fun at Amber Marchesefor her victim complex and asking fans to send positive and warm thoughts to Joe and Teresa Giudice.
Oh Florida – poor state victimized by Jersification at the hands of Real Housewives Of New Jersey. They spewed their drama all over your pure Boca beaches and left nothing but the reeking wreckage of poison, Dunkin’ Donuts cups, purloined Virginia Slims, and deflated twins.
Jim and Amber Marchese are holding the living room hostage and Bobby has finally emerged from the bathroom. What a good little trooper! Mommy wiped his tushy and he skulked downstairs to be polite. Bobby is afraid of a pissy Jimonster revealing his secrets – like that secret girlfriend he has stashed away! And Jim has seen photographic proof!
Bobby denies it, then stomps back upstairs to hide in the bathroom. But not before yelling “Figaaarooooo” from the top of the stairs. Bobby the expression is, “It’s not over til the fat lady sings.” Unfortunately your IQ under 12 misinterpreted that as, “It’s not over until the stumpy guido bellows off-key.” Lucky for Bobby he has ever-desperate ever-loving Nicole Napolitano to hold down the fort from HurricaneJim. She fails. Big time.
Instead the ladies joined Andy Cohen in New York yesterday, where all were present and accounted for – even Teresa! Teresa arrived at the taping, dressed casually, and shared that she’s doing “OK” in the wake of her sentencing for bankruptcy fraud, wire fraud, and mail fraud. Joe Giudice also attended the reunion filming, but arrived separately from Teresa.
Some options include putting filming for season 7 on long hiatus until Teresa returns from prison. “It’s been done before,” an insider explains. “There was a point where `Real Housewives of New York’ was off the air for almost a year.” It’s fair to note however, that when the show return ratings were at an all-time low. Of course with the drama of Teresa re-enacting Orange Is The New Leopard Black, I doubt that will be the case with RHONJ!
Well I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow night! Bravo seems to be cashing in on everything Giudice now that the stars of Real Housewives of New Jersey are heading to the clink. I have to admit, I am still a bit of shock to think of Teresa Giudice serving actual time. Something tells me that Juicy Joe wasn’t surprised to hear his sentence. I feel like he’s been dodging the law for so long, it has to be a bit of relief to get to stop running.
Of course, the Giudices (and the network that introduced them to the world) want to proactively handle the insane publicity that is sure to intensify as we countdown to Tre’s lock-up. Andy Cohen is no dummy. He’s going to milk this for all it’s worth, and he’s already teasing the Giudices’ Monday appearance in the clubhouse on the heels of Teresa canceling her public appearances.
Several car owners accused Mr. Khan of selling their automobiles on consignment, but then never relinquishing the cash – and in some cases the owners were still paying for car loans on vehicles that had been sold to new owners because Mr. Khan was not transferring the titles. Oops.
As a result of the investigation Emporio is now closed – and Khan has since been evicted from his showroom by his landlord for failure to pay $49,000 in rent! Good thing Melissa and Joe got those Bravo cameras there in time!
The Gorgas were reportedly trading the lease (or a discounted lease) of their Bentley in exchange for getting Bobby to appear on RHONJ.
