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.
Bethenny‘s currently in the middle of a press tour for her books, Cookie Meets Peanut and Skinnygirl Cocktails, so now she’s promoting the books AND she’s talking about the ratings challenged show. As they say, timing is everything.
In a recent interview with Extra, Bethenny talked about her decision to return to Real Housewives of New York, her personal life, and her reaction to Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Teresa Giudice‘s prison sentence.
Noticeably missing from the reaction shots were Dina Manzo, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga. Melissa took to her blog to explain why she didn’t let cameras into her home that day and throw a little shade at those who did.
Addressing the fans of the show, Melissa said, “We’ve been through so much together throughout the years. It’s not always easy being on reality TV. I’m not complaining, because obviously I signed up for it, but there are times I wish I could turn it on and off. Unfortunately I don’t have that option, so here we are.”
After Teresa was sentenced and all the bigwigs sat around wondering what to do now, I was like, “Um, FIRE HER?!?” I mean, seriously! I was not shocked, however, to learn that a pink slip wasn’t on the list of options.
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 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!
As we already reported, Joe Giudice will serve 41 months in prison with 2 years probation and has to pay more than $400,000. The judge is going to allow them to serve their time consecutively so their four daughters will have one parent at home.
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!
