We know y'all have been dying to discuss the latest and greatest Teresa Giudice exploit, so here it is. Eat your hearts out.
Teresa, whose defense strategy is 'Juicy did it! Y'all know I'm illiterate so I just signed where he told me to sign!', is attempting to walk away from her 39-count federal fraud indictment without doing any jail. You know, stranger things have happened… maybe.
Earlier this week the Giudices entered Not Guilty pleas at their arraignment and the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars had a trial date set. However, according to sources before going before the judge, Teresa and Joe's defense teams attempted to reach a plea agreement with prosecutors and were rejected!
“Teresa wanted a plea deal that keeps her out of jail so she offered to do anything else BUT jail time and have Joe serve all of the time in jail. The prosecutor dismissed the deal outright," a source tells RadarOnline.
So in case you haven't heard, Joe Giudice was charged with like 3 zillion money fraud related indictments. Which is about how much money he also owes because of bankruptcy debts related to falsifying income. And when he's done there he owes the IRS big too. Long story short, homeboy is in biiig trouble!
Among the revelations that emerged about the Real Housewives of New Jersey star during the court proceedings was that, despite being married to Teresa Giudice for like 15 years, Joe never bothered to become a U.S. citizen. Which means he's still an Italian citizen, since he was born there. And since he's not a U.S. citizen, as a felon or a convicted offender he could be deported!
We've been wondering how likely it was that ol' Juicy could be shipped off to Italy and lucky us, we got the opportunity to speak to an immigration attorney who gave us some insight into how cases such as these generally work.

In the video, Teresa pulls out the speech she wrote (Or did she? I know y'all love to run with the idea Tre doesn't write her own blogs! Me, I'm neutral…just trying for a little joke!), and gives her thanks to a woman she's clearly never met–awkward! Teresa flips through her many note cards and reveals that daughter Milania shares that the product "smells like poop" on an upcoming episode after she learns that no children are invited to the line's launch party. The always hilarious Milania even tells her mother she needs to change the name of the collection if she can't attend! Out of the mouths of babes!
And hey, if you already have hair products you can't part with, you could get some Milania products to use as hand cream. No, I'm not kidding. Watch after the jump!
"Of course, the Gorgas will step up, as will [cousins] Rich and Kathy Wakile, especially since the kids are involved," a family insider revealed to Perez Hilton.
If that happens, Bravo better get those cameras rolling. I can only imagine Melissa Gorga wrestling with Milania as she tries to plaster down that hair and turn her into a sweet little angel with coordinated outfits. Milania doesn't do charm school, bitch.
Caroline made it clear that since the case isn't the typical silly drama of Real Housewives of New Jersey, she's not dishing on it. She told AndyCohen, "I texted her the day of the indictment. I just sent a message that I'll keep to myself and she did respond back and I'm going to keep that to myself as well.".
This week kicked off with a bang as Teresa and Joe Giudice were in federal court where they were indicted on 39 counts of fraud, learning that they can't have their million dollar cake and eat it, too. It has been a frenzy of information since and it's been hard to keep up with the breakneck speed of the stories! Now that it's the weekend and things are a little more mellow, we're rounding up all the news related to the latest RHONJ mess so that you can sort through it and see if you missed a few things along the way.
Teresa and her daughters (three of them at least) are hanging in the Hamptons with Dina Manzo and her daughter Lexi. The former co-stars have been Tweeting up a storm, showing off their vacation pics. Teresa wrote with the above photo, "Hamptons visit with my girls @dinamanzo and @pamcolacino #greatfriends".
Teresa hasn't shared any photos of Joe or Gia, so they must've opted to stay home. I can only imagine how tough this media storm is for Gia. Adolescence is hard enough but then add into that your family is on reality TV and now being federally indicted for fraud…I truly feel for her.
