Not a lot of people are loosing sleep over the legal drama surrounding Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice and husband Joe Giudice. But there is one man in particular who is definitely not letting it bother him.
Bravo housewife wrangler, Andy Cohen, is absolving himself of any wrongdoing in the financial downfall, and subsequent incarceration, of Joe and Teresa. And I’d have to agree with him.
I think by now we know the entire backstory to Teresa and Joe’s legal issues. They pleaded guilty to fraud. They were sentenced to jail. Teresa was able to go home after her time was served. Joe was detained by ICE because he was not a citizen of the United States.
An immigration judge ruled Joe should be deported. His attorney filed an appeal which is still pending. After having his bail denied pending the appeal, Joe decided it was better to await the final decision of the appeals judge in Italy than in a cell.

Now, one has to wonder if Joe and Teresa’s nefarious acts would have ever been discovered if they hadn’t appeared on a reality show. And would the host of that show feel any guilt about it? According to People, Andy set the record straight. I dont have any guilt,” he announced on his radio show Andy Cohen Live. “This is a voluntary process,” he continued, “Putting your life and putting yourself of reality television, the risks are obvious, they are well-known, especially if you have something to hide.”
Interestingly, Andy revealed that during the development of RHONJ Joe asked if the IRS had “ever come looking for anyone doing these shows?” Which showed Joe had a concern from the very beginning. And also showed what idiots they were for wanting to continue filming.

Andy did discuss his regret for not sticking up for former housewife Caroline Manzo during a recent interview with Joe and Teresa on Watch What Happens Live. Teresa tried to cast the blame on Caroline by claiming it was Caroline who had ratted her out. I guess Teresa wants us to forget about the fact she ADMITTED to committing the crime. And that it didn’t take a genius to see Teresa and Joe were headed for disaster.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK ANDY HAS ANY REASON TO FEEL GUILTY? DO YOU THINK BRAVO HOLDS ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE PEOPLE THEY CAST?
