The Real Housewives Of New Jersey is poised to return October 4, so we know what that means…press tours for Teresa Giudice! In a recent interview, Teresa touches on the themes that have run her life for the past several years: fraud, prison, and hustling for money.

While Joe Giudice serves his sentence in New Jersey’s Fort Dix Correctional Institution, Teresa is back home trying to earn a buck to support their four daughters. Bravo paychecks, ghost written memoirs, and paid promotional appearances are keeping the family afloat for now – but how long will it last? According to Teresa, it better last a while, because she doesn’t want to depend on Joe for anything ever again!

Even though Kathy Wakile isn’t a Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member anymore, she is still trying to parlay her reality TV fame into opening an Italian restaurant in New Jersey. If that sounds familiar, it’s because she’s not the only New Jersey Housewife who has done this recently. With that said, it will be interesting to see how Kathy’s PizzaLove restaurant will do in comparison to the one that her two cousins Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga opened with Melissa Gorga.

Kathy’s restaurant is not open at a full-scale yet, but PizzaLove is having its soft opening to test out the menu and bring in some customers for the future. I wonder if it will serve up those cannolis that Kathy started serving while she was still on the show.

Teresa Giudice Book Signing

Despite a questionable grasp on both the English language and sanity, Teresa Giudice is a published author 6 times over. Gag me with a Fabulicious spaghetti noodle. After publishing 4 cookbooks, Teresa went to prison and got into the genre of writing memoirs about her life. But, living a crazy life is definitely one thing Teresa is qualified to espouse about!

To promote her newest memoir, Standing Strong, which will be released in October, the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star announced that she’ll be doing a series of book signings with fans who want an in-person glimpse of the ever-resilient Mrs. Giudice

Teresa Giudice, Ashley Darby & Brandi Glanville Perform The Vagina Monologues

When Real Housewives collide there’s usually trouble, but when Teresa Giudice got together with Brandi Glanville and Ashley Darby for a performance of The Vagina Monologues they all had a wonderful time! Teresa and Brandi getting along is a sign the apocalypse is coming, right?

“That picture says it all. #laughs #goodtimes #girlsjustwanttohavefun #ohio @brandiglanville & @ashleyboalchdarby #aftershow #didmyownmakeup @robinsclosetboutique,” the Real Housewives Of New Jersey mom captioned the above photo. “This is how we spent most of our time. I love these gals. #girlsgirls,” Ashley added.

Teresa-Giudice-Audriana-Birthday

In most of the Real Housewives shows, the kids are on the back burner. To be fair, it is usually for the sake of their own privacy which makes a lot of sense, but it is definitely relatable to see the Housewives hanging out with their families from time to time. Real Housewives of New Jersey is a show that is all about family.

The viewers have watched Teresa Giudice’s four daughters grow up over the years.  Teresa announced her pregnancy at the end of the show’s first season and she even gave birth to Audriana Giudice during the Season 2 premiere. Believe it or not, that happened eight years ago since Teresa’s youngest daughter just celebrated her eighth birthday! Time really does fly by fast and Audriana had a great time celebrating her birthday with her family and friends.

Look below for more selfies and snapshots, including Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann celebrating Kroy’s birthday, Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid showing off her assets, Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps promoting Kelly Bensimon‘s new book, Southern Charm star Shep Rose cruising around town during Hurricane Irma, Real Housewives of Orange County stars David and Shannon Beador tailgating at USC, and many more.

Danielle Staub

Boy some things have changed on Real Housewives Of New Jersey! Once upon a time, Danielle Staub was Teresa Giudice‘s mortal enemy, and Teresa was BFF with Jacqueline Laurita. Now, Jacqueline is completely out of the picture, and the woman Teresa once labeled a “prostitution whore” has become her bestie.

“Everything aligned perfectly,” Danielle gushed of her decision to return to RHONJ after a lengthy absence. Danielle’s decision was impacted after she bonded with Teresa over yoga and realized there would be no more table flips or country club shake downs. I am sure it did not hurt that Teresa and Danielle were also able to bond over running Jacqueline off.

Joe Giudice on RHONJ

Another day, another Giudice drama! This time Joe Giudice, who has been cooling his heels in prison after a money fraud situation went terribly awry, has been barred from the prison’s alcohol abuse treatment program over his immigration status.

Despite living in America since he was a baby, and marrying American citizen Teresa Giudice, Joe never completed his citizenship requirements and is currently eligible for deportation once his 41 month prison sentence ends. Last year Joe entered Fort Dix correctional facility and was placed in a special unit for substance abuse. At his sentencing hearing, the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star told the judge that he his drinking was out of control as a result of the legal issues, Teresa’s prison sentence, and the sudden loss of his father
