UPDATE: This has been confirmed as a FALSE REPORT. Vicky Hyman of NJ.com writes, “Matt Reilly, the U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman, says his office is continuing to work with the couple to schedule repayment, and has not ordered any such seizure. ‘Anyone went over there under official capacity, it would be under us.’”
The denials continue to pour in regarding an alleged raid on the home of Teresaand Joe Giudice. See the links below. The Sheriff’s office, the US Attorney’s office, Teresa’s lawyer, Joe’s lawyer and more have all firmly stated that no such occurrence took place and say the stories are 100% fabricated.
Amber recently dished about the possibility of a hiatus – shocker… she hates the idea – and her current thoughts on her co-stars.
Amber said her life is back to normal, which means free of drama, since filming ceased. “Normally there’s no drama in my life,” said the aspiring actress who is married to drama queen Jim Marchese. <side eye> “I’m a very focused mom and a very focused wife … that is where I’m happiest. I’m a homebody. I love being home with my children and honestly that’s my favorite job in the world.”
NeNe shared that the defrauding former Real Housewives Of New Jersey star brought her 4 daughters to a performance of the show and they had a great time. “My girl came to Cinderella last nite with her daughters to support me! I love seeing her. She looks so good & she’s a super strong woman,” NeNe gushed on Instagram.
Apparently in the months since Teresa was sentenced she’s become good friends with the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star, who has been a staunch supporter of Teresa for years. <side eye>
Teresa Giudice is reportedly already in talks with Bravo to star in a cooking show after she gets released from prison, and proving that she’s serious about the venture she has released a video sample of what fans could expect!
Teresa heads to prison on January 5th and she will serve a 15 month sentence for fraud. Although she’s eschewed most media and has refrained from talking about her situation, opting instead to spend time with family and friends, sources say Teresa is still working behind the scenes to salvage what she can from her business ventures and Fabulicious empire.
However Teresa isn’t the only person suffering - Real Housewives Of New Jersey is reportedly in peril and has no idea if they should continue the show or delay until Teresa is released. Teresa is expected to serve about 13 months of her 15 month sentence pending good behavior, which would put her release date in January 2016.
Teresa recently told Andy Cohen she won’t return to RHONJ, and seemed to be hinting for a post-prison spinoff to coincide with the tell-all she plans to write behind bars. Reports already state that Bravo has been filming Teresa as she prepares for prison and they plan to continue filming Joe Giudice and the girls while Teresa is “away.”
“Obviously any news that is hurtful or horrible to hear is so upsetting,” Gia admits. But she is confident they’ll be fine in the end. “My family is probably one of the strongest families I know, so we’ll get through this.”
No matter what, the pre-teen who grew-up on Real Housewives Of New Jersey, maintains an optimistic outlook.”When it’s over, we’re gonna be better than ever. It’s gonna be OK,” Gia says.
Teresa‘s absence is the perfect excuse, IMO, to put the show out of its misery.
Andy Cohen recently addressed the issue on Ask Me Anything on Reddit, “We have not made any plans relating to the future of the Jersey Housewives. We’ll go back and meet and talk and re-evaluation soon.”
I guess when you’re sentenced to the clink, anyone and everyone who has ever spent time in prison is raring to provide their two cents. Teresa Giudice certainly has people coming out of the woodwork to give her advice as to how to spend her time in the big house, but I was certainly surprised to hear the latest person chime in on the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s fate!
There is no shortage of celebrities and prominent figures who have spent time behind bars, but who knew the Reverend Al Sharpton would be weighing in on Tre’s upcoming incarceration? Preach!
