Real Housewives of New Jersey “OG” Teresa Giudice has certainly been busy lately. She entered a bikini fitness competition and flaunted her orangey spray-tanned body onstage, even though she knew that her husband, Joe Giudice, would disapprove. So, is Teresa also moving on in other ways?
Back in 2014, both Joe and Teresa pleaded guilty to federal fraud charges, and both were sentenced to jail terms. Teresa spent nearly one year in prison before returning to her husband and four daughters.
In March 2019, Joe will complete his 41-month stint
in prison at camp. Joe was one-year-old when he came to the United States, but he never became a citizen. The rest of his family did, so I am not sure why Juicy Joe did not. Since Joe committed a crime of “moral turpitude,” he is scheduled to be deported to Italy.
In November 2018, Joe filed an appeal hoping that he will be able to stay in the United States with his family. But while they await the court’s ruling, Teresa has signaled that she might not be packing
her bikini thongs her bags to join her husband in Italy. In an article in People, sources stated that Teresa told Bravo’s Andy Cohen and her fellow Jersey Housewives at the RHONJ reunion taping that if her husband is deported, “we’d go our separate ways.”
And now, Teresa’s brother-in-law, Peter Giudice, is sounding off after photos surfaced of Tre and a younger man spending quality time together. In an article on RadarOnline, Peter said that Joe needs to address the photos himself. “That’s his thing. Let him figure it out,” Peter commented. That doesn’t sound like he is defending Teresa. At all.
Teresa was seen four times with Blake Schreck in Miami over President’s Day weekend. The duo went to night clubs, and New Jersey realtor Blake was even seen holding Teresa’s hand as they walked down a street. Teresa’s alleged boy toy, who is 26 years old, was seen exiting her rented condo at 10 am after spending the night there. Perhaps they were discussing Teresa’s real estate needs?
But never fear! Teresa’s trusty attorney, James Leonard Jr. has an explanation for all that hand-holding. According to an article in Page Six, he said, “This is a story about someone helping a woman who had some wine and was wearing high heels to her car. That’s what you see in those pictures. There is no cheating, no divorce, no scandal and no story.”
Maybe the attorney should take another peek at those photos!
And this isn’t the first time that Teresa and her
new boyfriend friend were spied together. According to an article in US Weekly, Teresa and Blake were seen out on December 31, 2018 in Miami. Blake and Teresa also displayed some PDA, with a source explaining that “Teresa had her hands on his leg.”
The source added, “At points, the two had their hands intertwined. And then the man was rubbing her leg in a romantic way.”
After that incident, Teresa’s attorney James Leonard, Jr. told US Weekly, “Teresa was out celebrating New Year’s Eve with a large group of men and women while she was in Miami. They are all friends and have all known each other for a significant period of time,” he said.
I hope that cameras will be rolling to document how this drama unfolds on RHONJ next season!
