Joe Giudice was just sentenced to 41 months in prison and two years of supervised release. Stay tuned.
Joe and Teresa are receiving their sentences right now and we’ll be updating as the details and news trickles in.
Joe also has to pay more than $400,000 in restitution. Stand by for Teresa’s. Early reports saying they won’t serve at the same time so they can care for the girls. So, my guess is Joe will serve first unless Teresa’s winds up being a short one and she wants to get it over with. We’ll see in a few minutes!
Teresa’s sentencing is going to continue in about 25 minutes.
No sentence yet, but Judge Salas is not happy withJoe and Teresa Giudice for not disclosing everything they should have on financial documents and for turning them in MONTHS late.
According to NewJersey.com the Federal judge is ticked that the Real Housewives of New Jersey couple left several “glaring omissions” on their financial disclosure forms, including recreational vehicles, home furnishings, cars, construction equipment and seven other items. Apparently they were also supposed to have filed these documents in MARCH, but first did it in AUGUST. That is why their hearing was delayed! “I had to put the sentencing off because the financial disclosure wasn’t in,” Salas said.
All we can do is sit and wait for the official word on Joe and Teresa Giudice’ssentencing hearing this morning. The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple just arrived to the Federal Courthouse in New Jersey and we have the first photos of them making their way to the building. Teresa and Joe both look stoic. Teresa chose a simple black suit and a soft pink blouse.
I have to admit that all along I’ve been feeling like Teresa would get off with house arrest, but suddenly this morning I feel like she might have to serve some significant time.
We’ll keep you posted this morning on any news and developments!
In light of the situation, and everyone trying to get a bite of the action, there are a TON of ridiculous rumors out there about the Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars’ futures. Personally I think they should just volunteer to be on the first human Mars colony in lieu of jail time.
Below we break down all the silliest stories we’ve heard. And guess what – in almost every single one of them Teresa is getting divorced!

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.
Teresa and Joe were able to hold onto their mansion during their bankruptcy filing after the trustee found it to be worth less than than the couple owed and not a viable option to satisfy outstanding debts. With their bankruptcy dismissed and the couple still owing $13.5 million as if they never filed, and their sentencing scheduled for October 2nd, the couple needs to do all they can to lessen their financial burden.
With all of her legal issues and the major changes facing her family, Teresa Giudice may be ready to step back from the spotlight!
She is ambivalent about leaving Real Housewives of New Jersey behind but does not deny that she may be ready. “I don’t know the future,” Teresa admits. “No one knows what’s going to happen a year from now. I might get another job, who knows?” There have been rumors before that once Joe Giudice heads to prison Teresa will be getting a spinoff, there are also rumors that she’s looking to branch out into a lifestyle/cooking show that would be an extension of her Fabulicious brand, which now also includes desserts and gelato.
