Teresa Giudice is Tweeting from prison again!  Well, sort of.  The Real Housewives of New Jersey star shared another sweet Tweet with her fans, courtesy of her “social media manager” Gia. 

Teresa’s message to fans was simple and grateful, “Thank you for your outpouring of support and for standing by me through this most difficult time. Love love love you all!”

Despite a court report stipulating that federal prosecutors were lawfully allowed to seize Teresa Giudice‘s assets to satisfy her restitution debts, Teresa’s out-spoken attorney James L. Leonard Jr. denies that’s that the case!

Teresa owes more than $400,000 in federal restitution as part of her sentence for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. A court order showed that prosecutors made a deal with the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star to turn over a 25% portion of her Bravo paychecks, along with 50% of her income from a rental property she owns, in addition to seizing her personal assets, such as her 2005 Maserati  and furniture from her NJ mansion (currently in foreclosure and on the market.)

Mr. Leonard explains that contrary to reports, that deal was arranged by Judge Esther Salas and prosecutors as a ‘just in case’ Teresa didn’t make scheduled payments – which she has been. 


Reality TV News Teresa Giudice headed to Danbury

Teresa Giudice is broker than a joke and while she’s in prison she’s not able to earn any money. So what’s a Real Housewives Of New Jersey star to do? Give the feds her worldly possessions!

Teresa relinquished her 2005 Maserati (why she still had that when she was $13 million in debt is a complete mystery!) along with a portion of her RHONJ paychecks to satisfy her restitution debts to the feds. 

On Friday, federal prosecutors obtained the rights to seize the Giudice’s property or cash in order to satisfy their outstanding restitution debts. Teresa owes the federal government $414,588 as part of her sentence for mortgage and bankruptcy fraud.



Teresa Giudice caused quite a stir on Sunday when a tweet popped up on her personal Twitter account. “Thank you everyone for all of the cards, letters, and kind words of support,” the tweet read. “I love, love, love you all. XO, T!”

Many wondered, is the Real Housewives of New Jersey star getting special privileges in prison? Or is a friend/family member tweeting on Teresa‘s behalf? Teresa’s lawyer, James Leonard Jr, came forward to clear up the confusion.

After five months of silence on her social media accounts, imprisoned Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is Tweeting?  Yep, it appears so. 

It was a bit of a shock to open Twitter tonight and see a Tweet from Teresa pop up!  I’m sure it was a family member or a rep who is sharing Teresa’s words, but it was still surprising since the account has been silent since Christmas time!  Teresa took to Twitter to thank her fans for their support during this time.

Watch What Happens Live Andy and Bethenny

Bethenny Frankel turned the tables on Andy Cohen for a special segment of Watch What Happens Live. He dished on casting mistakes he’s made, which franchise has the most behind-the-scenes drama, whose fans he worries about burning down his house, and more.

Bethenny asked Andy, thinking back to the first season of Real Housewives of Orange County, did he think it would be as big as it is today. He said the possibility hit him in season two when Matt and Jeana Keough‘s marriage fell apart. “I was like, this is like a soap opera. Like, I care about Jeana, and things are not going well for her.”

On reality TV being blamed for the demise of so many marriages, Andy shared, “I think it has accelerated marriages that weren’t working. I’ve talked to Tamra [Judge] about this. I’ve talked to Vicki [Gunvalson] about this. They were in a relationship that wasn’t working. They saw it replayed on TV, and were like, ‘Wow, this is really bad.’ They had a chorus of people saying ‘dump him, dump him’ and they actually had the balls to do it.”


Teresa Giudice

Prepare to be WOWed by a post-prison Teresa Giudice!

Teresa Giudice signed on for Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7!

Oy. I cannot decide which of these headlines is more “bang my head against a brick wall” worthy. Ugh. Probably the second one, because the first comes from Teresa‘s lawyer, who’s being paid (maybe) to say things like Teresa’s “strength and resolve” amaze him. <side eye> And there’s more where that came from.

“December 23rd is her release date,” Teresa‘s lawyer, James J. Leonard, told E! News. “There is a possibility that could be moved forward. That’s something we’re actively working on. She will be home for Christmas. I know that means the world to her. Christmas in her house is a big event. When she gets out, she will be on what they consider home confinement, but she will not ultimately be confined to her home. She’ll be free to travel about with certain restrictions until February 5th.” If released on December 23rd, Teresa will have spent 11 months and 18 days of her 15-month sentence behind bars.

There’s been a lot of speculation that Bravo is delaying the 7th season to accommodate Teresa’s release from prison, which is due to happen sometime around the end of this year, in theory. Joe Giudice said Teresa was done with RHONJ unless offered ” a lot of money” – well, has she been offered that moola?! (Goodness knows she needs it!) because her attorney says she’s in the process of negotiating a contract with the network. 

Teresa’s attorney shared that she will most-likely be returning to RHONJ if terms can be agreed upon – and really why wouldn’t she because it’s basically The Teresa Show. “Anyone who has watched that show since the very first episode understands that Teresa Giudice is the central figure around which the show revolves,” her attorney James J. Leonard Jr. says.
