Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In

andy cohen annoyed with teresa giudice on wwhl sit-down

I’m sure my fellow Real Housewives of New Jersey fans watched the Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Checks In and have kept up with all of the legal drama surrounding Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice. With that said, it was pretty highly publicized that Joe and their four daughters visited Teresa as much as they could.

So I just figured that Teresa would return the favor with the regular visits- especially since he is going to be behind bars for such a long time. Well, apparently that is not exactly what’s happening and the reasoning is pretty surprising.

Amber Marchese, Jim Marchese

Look to your left, Jim Marchese is annoyed because Real Housewives of New Jersey is on hold, which means Amber Marchese can’t fulfill her dream of being a reality TV star, until Teresa Giudice is released from prison. Look to your right, holier than thou Jim insisted up and down Twitter that neither he nor Amber wants anything to do with Real Housewives of New Jersey again.

Jim’s panties have been in a bunch since, well, since the day we met him. But, in relation to this story, since Teresa Checks In aired. One of his many issues is that RHONJ season 7 is on hold. “It is BS that the entire cast, especially my wife, had their filming put on hold because Tre and Joe committed several felonies and [Teresa is] sitting in jail,” said the man who recently tweeted, “We are not coming back, do not need money or want fame.” So, he cares, why?!

It seems like we blinked, and just like that, the finale of the Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In is here. We laughed, we cried. In a brief moral crisis, we wondered why we were laughing and crying (maybe that was just me?). But it all comes to a close now, as Teresa Giudice checks in for the last time on national TV before she is released in December from Danbury Correctional Facility.

Since Teresa has been locked up, Joe Guidice has been running the household. Which means he has been spending 100% of his time trying to control Tropical Storm Milania. After fixing a clogged sink for cutie-patootie Audriana, Joe heads outside where Milania is feeding rocks to the pond fish (because she spilled all of their food on the ground). Gabriella is attempting to discipline Milania, but she gives up quickly, knowing it’s a futile battle. Joe Gorga comments that he has to hand it to Juicy for taking care of these 4 little girls because “they’re not just normal girls; they’re tough!”

Fans still care a whole lot about Teresa Giudice’s family and The Real Housewives of New Jersey, apparently!  Preliminary viewer numbers are in for part 1 of the three part special, Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In showcasing how her family is coping while she’s in prison – and they’re not too shabby! 

The RHONJ: Teresa Checks In special pulled in 1.2 million viewers on Sunday night in its first airing (Bravo normally counts several same-day airings to get their own final numbers).  For comparison’s sake: Manzo’d with Children had just 910,000 viewers (and only 719,000 last week).

Following the premiere of Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In, Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga were Andy Cohen‘s guests on Watch What Happens Live.

Filed under “Truly Horrifying Thoughts,” Andy admits he recently dreamed that Teresa Giudice was the Vice President of the United States. <whole body shudder> “I emailed her, and she said, ‘You know, you never know. Your dream might come true.'”

Andy tells Joe that Teresa plans to watch the show from prison (how nice) and asks if he wants to say anything to her. “Hello, baby, I love you,” he says. “You know what your brother asked me to do before we came on?! He told me to kiss him. I told him to kiss my ass.”

Well, folks, the controversial three-part series catching up with the Giudice family since Teresa Giudice’s January incarceration is here. Who’s watching? Since we here at RT pledge to bring you the latest reality news – whatever that news may be – we’ll be recapping the Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In each week. Admittedly, this series has a lot of us questioning just how far Bravo will go to expose/support/capitalize on the misdeeds and fallout of Joe and Teresa’s crimes, as well as the sad after-effects these crimes have had on their four daughters: Gia (14), Gabriella (10), Milania (9), and Audriana (5). So, let’s take a look at how this all shakes out…

In our first shot, we’re told the series was filmed six months into Teresa’s prison sentence. Joe, who is currently without a driver’s license (due to previous suspension) counts on his side of the family to help out with the bulk of carting his daughters around, and for emotional support. As he prepares breakfast for the girls, Milania steps in to cooks the sausages. Joe says this has been the hardest year of his life with the passing of his father and Teresa’s imprisonment. He thinks Teresa is proud of his efforts at home, though, because if not, she would have probably sent him divorce papers by now.

Gia Giudice Talks Teresa & Joe In Prison on ET

14-year-old Gia Giudice, the eldest of Teresa and Joe Giudice‘s 4 daughters, is very aware of all the changes taking place in her life. As her mother prepares to return home from a year-long prison stint, Gia’s father Joe prepares to ‘go away’ to federal prison for 41 months. Following that Joe could face deportation as he is not a US Citizen. 

“It could be worse,” acknowledges Gia; trying to keep a positive attitude. “My mom doesn’t want me or anyone to get emotional, so I try my best just to keep it all together.” 

Unfortunately for Gia the reality goes beyond reality TV, but unfortunately all has been filmed for Real Housewives Of New Jersey and their upcoming spinoff Teresa Checks In which chronicles how the family is coping while Teresa is spending her lock up wiping down tables and emailing (but not reading!).

Joe Giudice On The Today Show

Teresa Giudice is behind bars, but Joe Giudice is on the outside maintaining the family’s bread and butter: reality TV. With their spinoff, Teresa Checks In, airing this Sunday on Bravo, Joe shared how the family is coping while the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star serves time and also opened up about how unfair Teresa’s consequences are. 

In an in-depth interview Joe did with Today’s Tamron Hall, he admits that he “absolutely” feels guilty that Teresa is in prison. “I was to blame,” he says adamantly.

However, in addition blaming himself for Teresa’s incarceration, Joe blames the courts! “I took full responsibility for everything, but they still put her away.”
