Teresa giudice plea deal

nene leakes defends teresa giudice saying she didn't understand guilty plea

During a WWHL interview earlier this week Teresa Giudice told Andy Cohen that she didn’t “fully understand” her guilty plea meant she was admitting guilt to federal fraud charges. Despite her claim, prosecutors for the US Attorney’s office say did understand, but as NeNe Leakes points out they don’t really know how Teresa operates… 

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star claims that she thought her lawyers were going to fight for her and she put her faith “in their hands” only to find herself going to prison for 15 months! Oops. Teresa claims she’s going to learn to read things from now on – starting, I hope, with the dictionary Kathy Wakile gave her where she can look up G – for guilty. 

The prosecutor’s office, however, insists that Teresa was very aware of what she was doing when she signed that plea. They do understand that the very basis of Teresa’s defense was that she signs her name to things she doesn’t read, right? Like, duh – who has time to read when you could shop! Or bedazzle something! Or flip tables!

Teresa And Joe Giudice Court Appearance

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

Teresa and Joe Guidice plead guilty in Federal Court in NJ

The court system never fails to boggle my mind.  Yesterday Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice faced the judge to plead guilty to charges of fraud.  The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars pled guilty to a miniscule amount of charges out of the 41 total that they were facing and their jail time could be short and sweet, depending on the judge's mood come July. 

The Giudice's plea deals hit the court site yesterday and Tamara Tattles broke it down in simple terms.  We've got some of the highlights for you, but for the full read, see TT! 

Teresa's terms.  First, she's pleading guilty to only 4 of the 41 charges she was indicted on.  The feds agree in the plea deal to agree to drop charges 2-14, 16-21 and 26-35.   The counts that stand are as follows:

Count 1: Conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud -  Max 20 years/ $250K Fine
