Last week on Real Housewives Of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice headed to court where she and Joe Giudicepled guilty for various frauds. Teresa submitted a plea for 4 counts and Joe for 5. Although the couple hasn’t been sentenced yet they’re both looking at jail time!
This week the Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars struggle for normalcy after the media explosion of their guilty plea. That includes being brave and thinking positively for their four girls – and turning to old friends like Jacqueline Laurita in times of need.
Yesterday Joe was spotted in court alone so attorneys could determine whether or not his identity fraud trial should take place before or after his federal trial for fraud. Decisions, decisions! Noticeably absent (as she always is) was Teresa!
“They are having problems. It is almost impossible for a marriage to survive all this stress,” a friend confides to Naughty But Nice Rob. “We are praying for them, but it does not look good."
Teresa Guidicehas become the break-out star for Real Housewives of New Jersey. But unfortunately with fame and success there often comes a price. While Teresa’s third cookbook has already landed on the NY Times Bestseller list, her home life and family life remain in upheaval. And while she was competing on the hugely popular Celebrity Apprentice her friends and co-stars have all but disowned her.
Plagued by rumors of her husband’s infidelity, along with his legal and financial woes, Teresa put her big girl panties on and went to work. And apparently, Mrs. Giudice, who despite her tongue twisted ways, appears to be a bit of a marketing genius. Teresa intends to have the last laugh and spin all of the drama to her favor. In a new story by Us Weekly several sources reveal Teresa’s plans to turn lemons into fabulicous lemonade.
Teresa’s marriage has been making headlines since the first season of RHONJ, while Joe Giudice often behaves like a drunken buffoon, Teresa consistently defends him. “Teresa puts on blinders when it comes to Joe,” a family insider tells the mag. “It’s difficult for her to accept he’s such a scumbag.” Indeed, Teresa recently confessed to losing her virginity to her husband of twelve years, and she has ardently defended him through all his tribulations.
It seems Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudicesells magazines! That is evident by the fact that she is gracing three magazine covers this week, two of which are above (you can click on the covers to make it bigger). And if the cover stories are to be believed, Teresa is both pregnant and pursuing a new man. So let’s examine both stories!
First up is the In Touch cover story as Teresa graces the magazine cover for the 4th time in 6 weeks! Holy famewhore! Out of all the mags, In Touch actually has a paid real interview with Teresa.
The cover touts “A Baby Boy For Teresa!” So is she pregnant? Well that answer is NO. In reading the actual story, it is a what if scenario for Teresa who reveals she is considering having another baby, a son, for husband Joe Giudice. “I don’t know if my body will be able to take it,” explains Teresa who gained nearly 50 pounds with first child Gia.
Teresa, who has four daughters with hubby Joe, adds that having a son is very important to her husband. “That’s important to him, she says adding that even though a new baby would take a toll physically, financially and emotionally, she still wants to give Joe the little boy he’s always wanted.
In fact, Teresa and Joe already have a name picked out for their yet to be conceived baby boy. “It would definitely be Franco, after my father-in-law,” she shares. And Joe approves. “I think my dad would like that,” smiles Joe adding that he daydreams about teaching a son “football, baseball, boxing, karate, anything he likes.”
Teresa, who filed bankruptcy in 2009 with an $11 million debt, however worries about the financial toll having another baby would bring. “You have to worry about college,” says Teresa. “I want to be able to give them everything, and the more kids, the harder that gets.”
Moving right along to the OK! story which states Teresa is on the brink of divorce with Joe. The reason? Because he might be going away for 10 years. Joe was arrested earlier this year and charged with using his brother’s ID to get a driver’s license (his license is suspended due to a past DUI conviction) and faces up to 10 years in prison.
“If he goes to prison for years, Teresa will likely file for divorce,” says an insider. “Teresa’s really angry at him, she can’t believe he got arrested again. She just can’t forgive him. The fact that he premeditated [illegally getting the driver's license] and didn’t ask her what she thought has made her flip,” adds the source.
“She’s accepted that Joe will probably end up in prison for a while, and there’s no way she wants to be single. She’s faced the idea of dating again,” reveals the insider before going on to state Teresa already has a certain man in mind that she wants in her life.
As for Teresa, she is laughing all the way to the bank about the stories. She tweeted yesterday morning after the mags came out, “Happy hump day!!! What’s news (besides more tabloid covers…)? Enjoying your summer? xx.” You can read more of both stories in the issues of In Touch and OK! magazine.
