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.
To talk about what is going through their minds as Joe‘s surrender date grows closer, Joe Giudice and Teresa Giudice will be on Entertainment Tonight this evening.
About his 41-month sentence, which begins March 23, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star shares, “I just want to get out as quickly as I can… and do whatever I can to get out.”

Oh, Joe Giudice – will you never learn: you fought the law and the law won (again and again and again!). Despite the fact that he is literally standing in front a judge right now, the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is still not prepared to make a decision in his identity fraud case. Lord these Giudices are so disorganized!
Joe is back in a Passaic County courthouse today as a last-ditch effort to arrange a plea deal in his identity fraud case. He previously rejected a few of them in favor of going to trial to prove he’s innocent
(HAHAHAHAHA!) despite prosecutors revealing they have very, very convincing evidence against him. The latest plea deal offered by prosecutors gives Joe the opportunity to run his 41 month federal sentence concurrently with his state sentence, but witnesses from court reveal that Juicy is insisting he’s innocent and wants a trial.
The crux of the issue for Joe is that if he accepts the plea deal he won’t legally be able to drive while he awaits his turn to serve time as his license will be suspended for up to 18 months. However IF Juicy goes to trial, he could wind up with the maximum sentence of 10 years. Hmmm, let’s break this down in simplistic terms: 18 months of being trapped in the house with Milania (#GimmeTheKeysYouOldTroll) vs. 10 years of being trapped in prison with…

Well I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow night! Bravo seems to be cashing in on everything Giudice now that the stars of Real Housewives of New Jersey are heading to the clink. I have to admit, I am still a bit of shock to think of Teresa Giudice serving actual time. Something tells me that Juicy Joe wasn’t surprised to hear his sentence. I feel like he’s been dodging the law for so long, it has to be a bit of relief to get to stop running.
Of course, the Giudices (and the network that introduced them to the world) want to proactively handle the insane publicity that is sure to intensify as we countdown to Tre’s lock-up. Andy Cohen is no dummy. He’s going to milk this for all it’s worth, and he’s already teasing the Giudices’ Monday appearance in the clubhouse on the heels of Teresa canceling her public appearances.

Yesterday Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison, while her husband Joe Giudice received a 41 month sentence for federal fraud charges of bankruptcy fraud, mail fraud, and conspiracy to commit wire fraud. The Judge decided to give the couple staggered sentences allowing one of them to always be at home with their 4 daughters.
Teresa will begin serving her sentence first, on January 5th, 2015, so she will be able to spend the holidays with her daughters. Teresa and Joe owe $414,588 in restitution as a couple and each face two-years of supervised release following prison.
Below we give a rundown on the course of the day and what led to the Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars’ sentences.
