The video produced by Haute Hostess features the Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars discussing their New Years plans and what they hope to accomplish in 2015. For Teresa… you might think that resolution includes surviving prison, or building a better life for herself while serving time, but nope – it’s to eat less carbs. Seriously. I dunno… T, beggars can’t be choosers, I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be vending machine food and whatever is in the commissary!
Teresa Giudice has less than a week before she heads off to prison, and she is wasting no time getting her family into the limelight in her absence! Rumor has it Teresa’s eldest daughter Gia, already a budding popstar, is all set to film her own reality show! But Teresa has even bigger dreams for her family as she aims to turn their scandal into success, ala the Kardashians! Oh heavens…
A source says Gia’s show has been filming for “two months” and will focus on her burgeoning singing career. “It will be all about her group, 3KT. So far, the footage is really fun. Once the pilot is completed, they’ll start shopping it to the networks.”
Gia’s show will hardly feature her Real Housewives Of New Jersey star mom, because Teresa will be incarcerated, of course, but Teresa will make appearances supporting her daughter. “All the girls’ families are in it here and there. But it’s not a show about the grownups; it’s all about the girls. Everyone’s very excited about it,” the source clarifies.
2014 was a year for law breaking, court cases, tax issues, and bankruptcies from our favorite reality TV stars.
Below, we’ll update you on who owes what, whose divorce is a mess, who is suing, who is being sued, and who’s going to prison! In addition to adding several new cases to the rosters of law-dabbling reality stars, some stars continued to battle existing cases – such as Jacqueline Laurita‘s and Sonja Morgan‘s bankruptcies.
Meanwhile other stars finally resolved long-standing issues. Undoubtedly the biggest legal drama of the year was Teresa Giudice finally facing a judge and being sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to 4 counts of fraud, which all began way back in 2009 when the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star filed for bankruptcy for an incredible $13 million dollars of debt!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite family holiday photos. Enjoy!
You won’t find Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice hiding away from the world as her prison term looms. The mom of four is spending her last days with family and friends, enjoying herself and creating happy memories.
Last night Teresa and Joewatched Gia and her girl group 3KT perform in public for the first time and tonight she’s spending some quality time with her girlfriends and co-stars, Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea – skiing and drinking by the fire. The ladies Tweeted the photo above, taken at the Crystal Springs Resort. Teresa Aprea shared, “Cocktails by the fire pit w @teresaguidice @nicolenapolitano_rhonj #alwaysgreattimes#skiing.”
Despite having just a few days to go until she has to turn herself in to serve a fifteen month prison sentence, Teresa was all smiles as she cheered on her daughter and her fellow group members, Cristianna and Alexa.
Also making a debut last night was Juicy’s new beard! I’m weirdly digging it! Take our poll below to tell us if you love it or hate it. See all the photos below!
Reality TV is usually known for its TERRIBLE fashions, but once in a while a gal (or guy) gets it right. Rarely, but hey – it happens. Lord knows this list was a struggle, I had to really search and search – wrack my memory, so to speak – to find the good looks.
However, after careful consideration, lots of overlooking, and focusing on the positives here’s my pick for best dressed reality TV stars of 2014. Many people are on this list because of progress made – even if it’s merely outfit to outfit progress, but remember we’re thinking positively. <side eye>
