U.S. Attorney’s Office Rejects Teresa’s Attempt to Make a Plea Deal to Avoid Prison; Giudice’s Federal Trial for Money Fraud Postponed Until April 2014 (Updated 3/4/2014)

August 15, 2013

UPDATE 3/4/2014: On March 4, 2014, Joe and Teresa Giudice pleaded guilty to federal charges of mortgage and bankruptcy fraud. Joe pleaded to five counts, which included a failure to file income taxes (he was accused of skipping out on his tax returns for five years, 2004-2008, with income totaling $996,459); Teresa entered a guilty plea to four counts. Both admitted to one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud (connected to the 13 counts of fraudulent mortgage and other loan applications), plus one count each of bankruptcy fraud by concealment of assets, bankruptcy fraud by false oaths, and bankruptcy fraud by false declarations (they were charged with 22 counts of bankruptcy fraud: the couple filed bankruptcy in October 2009, but after several amendments and hearings, they withdrew their petitions two years later, in late 2011, because a federal bankruptcy court trustee filed a lawsuit claiming they both intentionally concealed assets and earnings to avoid paying back creditors). The pair was scheduled to face trial on the federal charges beginning on April 14, 2014. The couple will be sentenced on July 8, 2014. Under federal sentencing guidelines, which are not binding on the judge, Teresa faces 21 to 27 months in federal prison while Joe faces 37 to 46 months and could likely be deported. Said Federal Judge Esther Salas in accepting the pleas, after Italian citizen Joe Giudice finishes his time behind bars, he will face another hearing that will “likely result in … your being removed from the United States.” Click here for more on the story.

UPDATE 11/20/2013: According to NJ.com, the Giudice’s federal trial for money fraud has been postponed until April 2014. After a November 20, 2013 hearing for two additional counts added to the 39-count federal indictment, the lawyers on both sides of the case met privately with the judge for several minutes and emerged to announce that the February 24, 2014 trial date will be pushed back a “short while.” Joe’s attorney Miles Feinstein indicated that the new trial start could be in early April.

UPDATE 9/6/2013: Teresa and Joe Giudice’s federal trial for money fraud has also been postponed until February 24, 2014. The Giudices had been scheduled to stand trial in Newark on October 8, 2013 on charges of conspiring to fraudulently obtain mortgages and other loans, and hiding assets and income from the bankruptcy court. The following is the report from NorthJersey.com:

Prosecutors allege that they used fake pay stubs, tax returns and W-2 forms to secure nearly $5 million in loans between 2001 and 2008 and concealed income from the Bravo cable television show and other business ventures after they filed for bankruptcy in 2009.

Indicted in July, the couple entered not-guilty pleas in August. Lawyers for the government and the defendants later jointly requested a continuance.

In setting a new trial date of Feb. 24, 2014, U.S. District Judge Esther Salas took note in a court order of the large amount of financial and other documentary evidence that defense lawyers must review in order to adequately prepare for trial.

The judge also cited Joe Giudice’s upcoming trial on state charges and said “the failure to grant a continuance would unreasonably deny [him] continuity of counsel and the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation in this case.”

Joe Giudice is facing state criminal charges for allegedly presenting marriage and birth certificates belonging to his brother Pietro to obtain a driver’s license at the Motor Vehicle Commission office in Paterson in 2010. At the time, Joe Giudice’s license was suspended for driving while intoxicated after he flipped his pickup in Montville. The trial in that case is set for Oct. 28.

The 39-count federal indictment charges the couple with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, loan application fraud and bankruptcy fraud.

On August 14, 2013, Joe and Teresa Giudice plead not guilty to financial fraud. In Touch reported on August 15, 2013 that the U.S. Attorney’s office has rejected Teresa’s attempt to make a plea deal to avoid jail time:

“They were originally going to plea down for Teresa, but the U.S. Attorney’s office said no,” says an insider close to the case. Teresa’s attorney, Henry Klingeman, said, “I’m not discussing it. If there ever were a deal, I would never discuss any conversations with the government about any client.”

However, a second source says that a plea deal was definitely discussed by Teresa: “I have never seen any kind of case where that hasn’t happened. And discussion about a plea deal took place here.”

Both Teresa and Joe will face up to 50 years in prison if found guilty, with the possibility of Joe’s deportation.

The Giudice’s trial date is scheduled for October 8 at 9 a.m. to face their recent charges of bank fraud, conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, and tax evasion, among others.

CBS 2′s Dick Brennan reported that neither Teresa nor Joe spoke in court, only whispering to each other:

At one point, Teresa wiped sweat from her husband’s brow. The couple also declined to speak to reporters outside the courthouse.

“They were relieved that they could stand up in court through their attorneys and say ‘not guilty,’” said Miles Feinstein, Joe Giudice’s attorney.

Feinstein said there is no truth to a rumor that Joe might plea bargain by testifying against Teresa.

“At least one magazine had an article that Joe, my client, was going to testify against Teresa,” Feinstein said. “That’s absolutely not true.”

After the court hearing Wednesday, instead of laying low, Teresa Giudice went to mingle with her fans at a book signing. She was all smiles as she signed her new cookbook for more than 100 people at a small boutique in Wayne, N.J.

At her cookbook signing at Posche in Wayne, NJ, hours after Joe and Teresa plead not guilty to financial fraud on August 14th, Life & Style chatted with Teresa about Melissa and season 5:

“We’re all good,” the mother of four told Life & Style about their relationship at her cookbook signing at Posche in Wayne, N.J. on Wednesday. “We’re only getting better from here on. Til death do us part.”

“It’s going really well,” said Teresa, who traded in her pantsuit from court for a sexy Boulee Kirsten dress. “As you saw, we’re in a much better place and you’re going to see us taking a trip to Arizona for some Zen.”

She even poked fun at her current situation:

Teresa was seen greeting fans of all ages, including a devoted pair of friends from Roxbury, N.J., wearing “FREE TRE” T-shirts. She even signed the back of the shirt!

While Joe and Teresa were in court to plead not guilty to the federal charges, Gabriella and Milania Giudice were with Melissa to celebrate Antonia’s 8th birthday (photos above and below plus more photos on Melissa’s instagram). Take note of the mixed drinks and wine on the table below and the short-shorts and  see-through top that Melissa is wearing at this fine-dining gathering – it looks like the event is centered around the adults more so than the children.

Because Melissa is cheap (per her former friend Jan Marie DeDolce,) and didn’t want to pay for the birthday dinner, she chose a restaurant that would give her free meals in exchange for promoting the establishment on Twitter:

“@empiresteaknyc: We Hope Antonia Had a Happy Birthday! Thanks to @melissagorga for choosing @empiresteaknyc to celebrate!” – Retweeted by Melissa Gorga, August 20, 2013

Just twelve days earlier, on August 2, 2013, Melissa told TheWrap that Teresa was “was guilty by association” for the rumors circulating about her:

The housewife has been the subject of many accusations from allegations that she used to be a stripper, that she married her husband for money and, most recently, that she cheated on him. It’s not hard to find the common denominator in every accusation. They always seem to include Giudice in the mix somehow.

When asked if she felt Giudice was guilty by association, Gorga replied, “Of course. I mean, I think it’s going to blow up but I can’t really say too much about that.”

“I’m sitting on years of things that went on where Teresa was involved,” she elaborated. “I’m not putting it all on her, I’m not saying it’s just her but I’m saying when I was called a stripper Teresa was in the episode. When I was called a cheater, Teresa was sitting there with the same people. When I was made out to be a gold digger and everything else, it came right out of Teresa’s mouth.”

“You’ve never heard me, besides this season, say anything about her marriage, I’m just repeating things that we’ve already seen on camera,” she continued. “I came on the show talking about Sprinkle cookies and that she threw them in the garbage. That’s very different than cheating rumors or stripping rumors.”

On July 26, 2013, Melissa told TheWrap that viewers “keep forgetting what I’ve been through and what has lead up to this:”

“People only remember what they’re seeing right now, they don’t remember what happened before,” the Bravo star said. “They don’t remember the events that lead up to seeing me a little bit hard and a little bit fed up. I think they’re forgetting why, they’re forgetting what I’ve been through and what has lead up to this.”

To be fair, Gorga has been the subject of several rumors at her expense, including the allegation that she once worked as a stripper and most recently that she had cheated on her husband.

“Every season there’s a new rumor about me,” she said. “It’s been open game on me for the whole entire season and it hasn’t stopped and if I saw it stop I wouldn’t be so tough. But, I can see that it just keeps happening and happening so I was done throwing the blanket on it and I really wanted to get to the bottom of it now. I’m sorry if anyone doesn’t like that, but I have to stand by the fact that I don’t want to see my husband hurt anymore and I need to protect him and my family first.”

        “Free (celebrity name)” shirts are printed and sold when a celebrity goes to jail (paris hilton, lindsey lohan, etc). “Free” as in “free this person from jail.” Which implies that Teresa will be going to jail (which is probably true) but Teresa does not want to talk about that scary/embarrassing stuff with fans. Remember how upset she was that Joey was talking about Juicy “going to jail” instead of saying “going away” in front of cameras?

        Remember on RHONJ when Teresa was doing a book signing and a fan came up and started talking about Juicy going to jail–Teresa looked shellshocked. In her talking head she looked bewildered and said no one had come up to her and asked her that before. It was obvious she was uncomfortable that a stranger was bringing up Juicy going to jail, even though it was coming from someone who was expressing support.

                      The “Free Tre” tee shirts these two fans wore to the book signing was simply a show of solidarity and support for Teresa. It’s not like they were outside the court house protesting………………yet.

                    • August 16, 2013 at 6:43 AM

                      I think the whole notion of “Free” is you are not jailed and at this stage, she is free. To ask for her to be free is implying she is “guilty” – putting the cart before the horse. In pop culture, it’s actually taking the piss of the Free Mandela movement: political prisoner vs pop tart. It started with Winona Ryder’s incarceration for shop lifting. Raises two questions: is Teresa now a pop icon or on the flip side is she a joke i.e. Paris Hilton – poo little rich girl locked up?

                I agree JustMeP – the shirts were made with no real thought or hidden agenda about the meaning of “Free. . .” to show support for her by well-meaning fans and she understands that. That’s all there is to it.

                  here’s a shirt from the same site as the the Free Tre shirts, supporting dead singer Amy Winehouse:

                  It’s a humorous tshirt site, not a Teresa-fan site. They print shirts that they think are funny/mocking. I understand those 2 fans of Tre didn’t buy them with that intention. They think they’re wearing them to support Teresa, so does Teresa, so do some of you. That’s fine. But the original intent of the t-shirt makers was to MOCK Teresa’s case, not support her. But they don’t care what the reason is that people are buying them, they’re just trying to sell them and make money like they do with all their outrageous shirts.

                  I’m shocked by how many heads this went over. Oh well.

                  We have all laughed quite frequently about printing up Free Juicy Joe t- shirts. Is he in jail? No. It’s a joke. The definition of the shirt is debatable and we all certainly can decide for ourselves exactly what the meaning is. I grew up in the radical 60s when Free whomever was situational . I don’t take offense at these things. Then again if the wearer of the shirt who obviously purchased it, stood in line to to see Tre and then asked for it to be signed do not seem like the actions of a hater. The company responsible for the shirts could care less how the slogan is interpreted as long as they sell.

    • August 15, 2013 at 7:59 PM

      I watched the video, they were escorted by body guards and a barricade was in place. I do not believe Teresa signed any t-shirts.

      ” … And discussion about a plea deal took place here.” Where, Jac’s house, Kim’s house, the Brownstone? The “source” better not be anyone involved with the court system or the prosecution of Teresa and Joe. This is a big, big NO, NO. They could lose their job, be prosecuted themselves and the result could be the dismissal of Teresa and Joe’s case. It happened here in Louisiana, as Confused can attest to.

      My imagination is running wild again. I think the Laurita’s case had been stalled a little too long. I believe Jac is the source. None other than Jac would be stupid enough to state that a discussion about any plea took place in their presence or home. It may have, when Jac was discussing her deal for giving information about Teresa and Joe. I could just here Jac squawking that she wanted Teresa to do some time.

      • August 15, 2013 at 8:05 PM

        Moma — I do believe the signing of T-shirts was at the book signing, which is why I wondered why it was awkward?

        Also I don’t believe crap in the rag mags.

        I’m sure one was done and they dismissed it. Because they don’t want to go to trial and have to defend or even testify about what did happen. But the federal prosecutor want what the Giudices don’t want, them to serve prison time. I truly think that they will serve it, and it will be a shock to them.

        • August 15, 2013 at 9:20 PM

          In the interest of “justice” the Federal Prosecutor should not “want” them to serve prison terms. It is the Judge’s job to hand over a sentence. The Federal Prosecutor should want “justice” to be done. Conflict of interest? Buck I will stand firm, deals are not cut this quickly. I also do not believe Teresa would be this eager to testify against Joe.

            The Feds have their own prisons and there’s plenty of room. If convicted of a Federal Crime, the offender has to serve almost the whole time in jail — there is no early release (I think it’s something like 90+% of sentence must be served and the remainder is usually spent in a half-way house or home confinement.

          I predict a hung jury or acquittal for Tre and that Juicy will so some fairly serious time — and I don’t that would shock anybody. The prosecutor’s just running scared and that’s why he won’t enter into a plea agreement that gives Tre no time; he needs to be able to blame the jury.

        I can certainly attest to and verify momajackie’s comments regarding leaks. The Feds are usually (should be in any event) pretty tight-lipped about things.

        I find it interesting though, that the court case is scheduled so soon, I personally believe that doesn’t bode well for Teresa and Joe. I would suspect that there was some type of negotiations going on and the bottom fell out. I still think that the Feds were looking for bigger fish………….

      I find USWeekly to be a VERY odd choice because that rag has always been very open about being Pro-TSI and very Anti-Teresa.

      This could go one of three ways – (1)it will be written and edited to make AArater look bad – just like L&S did to Bryan (even though he never even spoke to that tabloid and they just made up a story based on other news sources), (2) USWeekly has decided to do a complete turnaround and welcomes the chance to expose TSI (HIGLY UNLIKELY!!!), or (3) this was just tweeted to throw everyone off!!.

      If it is true USWeekly is where his story will be told – I’m going with he will get a very poor edit and be made out to be just another person lying about TSIL’s past. Problem is – why are there “rumors” and so many people “lying” about TSIL and have been right from she first started on the show? She can deny, deflect, and make people out to be “assholes”, but eventually, a pattern is created.

      These “lies” and “rumors” about her cheating did NOT start when she announced she was writing a book as she claims and would have the mainstream audience believe. The proof is right here on Fame-Whorgas.

Sometimes they even have pro-Wakile articles with no comments at the end! Sadly, a lot of people like to comment about Tre! Before the Giudice indictments came out people were actually starting to bash Tsil on ROL! I really think after the indictments came out Tsil thought that Tre’s fans would defect and side with Tsil’s lies! Sorry, skank, but if Tre went down I’d go down with her and never watch another episode of RHONJ! Tsil needs to get over herself! Why must she remind people that she is always the topic of ‘rumors’ about her skanky past? Like what Joe Giudice said, (paraphrasing) “No one cares if she was a stripper!”. Tsil’s M.O. seems to make people care that she was a stripper and play the victim about it! I can’t stand people like her! They’re like a cyclone in people’s lives and when the storm ends they play the victim about all the items they destroyed! They take no accountability on their behavior and the hurt they cause!

      On May 19th, TSIL appeared on WWHL in preparation for the season premiere of RHONJ. This is when she scoffed at Teresa thinking “On Display” was written about her. Her hair was slightly lighter but still dark. She had been lightening her hair during filming and by the time she made this appearance, filming was complete. On July 8th, she again appeared with Andy, and her hair was slightly lighter again. This past Sunday on WWHL, Melissa’s hair was much lighter with blonde blended in – the lightest we have seen it.

      When you watch this preview for this week’s show, TSIL is talking with Teresa and her hair looks about the same. But then she has a TH – and there she is with the blonder hair. It looks as though this TH may have been filmed just recently:

            Maybe he wanted on the cover of the book but his idea involved Tarzan so they avoided it and the compromise was his photo shoot for the billboard…lol How many photos does TSIL have of her and the staircase? Kris Jenner loves her staircase too. Kris explained to a reporter for TV Guide, “I make a grand entrance down my own staircase at least once a day only there’s nobody there to enjoy it”

        You are absolutely right! It does appear that they recently did this TH. The background is a lot more cleaner than the backgrounds of the housewives talking heads. Melissa is a joke and her taking her daughter out for her bday with her friends seems a little staged too. This is probably the first REAL bday Antonia has ever had. Melissa is so sneaky and she’s always trying to compete with other housewives by wearing a outfit they wore first and her wearing a similar one so she can get in the magazines to see “Who wore it best” section. Her look is DEFINITELY competing with Jennifer Lopez and now she’s trying to rap and asked for a rap battle with that chick that’s on the show with Jeff Lewis? Is that his name? not sure but Melissa is too lazy to come up with her own ideas. She always has to jock someone else style/ideas.

            Nah we do it all the time. However its only our own kids with us. If I were caring for others’ children whose parents were not present… and the kid:adult ratio was not in our favor… and we were going into the city… I think I’d be extra vigilant and probably skip the drinks that day.

            Still, what I think is even less tasteful is her inappropriate choice of clothing for this girls’ outing!

                August 16, 2013 at 1:48 PM

                Don’t get me wrong. I actually like the outfit, but would call it “hot” or “sexy” and not necessarily “cute” as you do. That said, I don’t think “hot” is the right look for a kid’s birthday party. A night out on the town, yes. Kid’s party, no. But that’s totally my opinion, to each his/her own. And I am sure you looked amazing 🙂

          • August 15, 2013 at 11:21 PM

            I love nothing better than some good wine, however, if I’m driving or my spouse a bunch of girls for my kids birthday dinner I will not drink. Especially if there are other children who I’m responsible for. It’s a kid birthday dinner, not an adult one. I know if I sent my son off to a birthday dinner for the evening I would not want the hostess driving and drinking with my kid, not even one glass of wine. They can drink all they want when the get home, same as I do. Just my opinion.

            • August 16, 2013 at 1:59 AM

              Except for the fact I hate wine, I agree with you Maggs. I’m a prude though and won’t drive after one beer and normally you have more than one when you go out. The thought of going to tent city in the summer and or killing someone — can’t imagaine.

        That depends. Working in the yard or garden, you get a lot of Earth energy and drop a lot of the electrostress that now surrounds us with Wifi and cellphone towers. Also, working with ones circadian rhythm (up with the sun, down with the sun) will allow one to sleep pill free. Anyone with a work schedule that interrupts ones circadian rhythm is essentially screwed.

        I have a feeling they took a car. Of course Joe is with her. It is common knowledge that he does not work, but I digress. As far as drinking while hosting several young girls at a party they are hosting and being the only adults in attendance? Very poor choice. But then, Melissa has a history of making poor choices. Where do we begin? Just about every step of her life is one poor choice after another leading right up to going to the theatre dressed as a hooker and drinking whilst hosting a young girls birthday party. My mom used to say the most dangerous thing in the world is white trash with money.

          Agree, Sue Ling – they took a car and probably weren’t driving. Five girls scrunched up in the back of even an Escalade is a little bit too crowded for a ride into the city from Jersey. One glass of wine is okay I think though. Any more than that wouldn’t be prudent with other people’s children in their care.

    I know Melissa has a good figure, but does she really need to wear hot pants to a production of Annie for her daughters birthday? Each to their own I guess.

    Also I thought that while Melissa may have only come on the show talking about sprinkle cookies, maybe that is because Teresa hasn’t actually done anything major to her. Teresa however is around all of these massively negative rumours of Melissa because she has actually done something. Obviously Melissa is spinning this as a negative side to Teresa’s personality.

      To stay relevant. That show is relevant to a very desirable consumer group, a group she’d like to go buy tickets for her movie and click on over to her channel. I don’t have a clue why people are so surprised that she did WWHL. Its like the hippest show to do all of a sudden.

  21. August 16, 2013 at 4:36 AM

    The fact that Melissa sees every year of her (choice of) employment as open season on her really makes me question her capacity to digest reality. How does she manage to twist absolutely every situation about her being the victim. She we remind her that the people are speaking to a cast member about her indiscretions in the exact same way they she did in order to get on the show. These people want their 15 minutes and hey, no harm no foul using the Gorga Method on it’s creator. She’d be flattered in a topsy turvey world. Kim D has been angling to get on the show before Melissa came into existence. She was playing Danielle for screen time. Don’t you think she’s be angry that she was overlooked and the Whorgas got the spot she’d been scheming for for two years? Are you telling me that The Greeks didn’t wanted to improve their fortunes and profiles? The Housewives turn hobbies into careers ie Ramona’s Pinot grigio, Tamara’s gym, Zarin Fabrics, Sur. It’s actually smart business if you go about the the right way and have something to promote, not just wing it a la Missy as you go along. The franchises stopped being about seeing how the other half lived the moment Bethenny hit the ground running.

    That is the saddest excuse for an 8th birthday I’ve every seen! We were having sleep overs and pools parties at that age not going to restaurants! Totally different if it was a high tea – that’s what little girls do!! But the Gorgas are about celebrating the fact that Melissa gave birth by the looks of things, not that their kids were born.

    This whole Juicy, Teresa thing, I really have little to say, apart from what I’ve already said because we just don’t know the specifics. We haven’t seen with our own eyes the situation, I haven’t bothered to read the documents simply because they’ve only hurt themselves – I can’t see how it is comparable to the magnitude of the Laurita’s fraud.

      The former Real Housewives of New York City star dished to Scott and Todd on 95.5 PLJ Radio in New York City that she thinks the most of the women on the shows are “all show and no go” when it comes to flaunting their pretend massive wealth.

      “I’ve been around it,” Bethenny said. “I think Bravo likes to cast someone that lives a larger than life life and that people look at and think they’re so wealthy and want that and think it’s aspirational.

      I don’t see anything wrong about taking girls to see the Broadway show “Annie” and then a visit to the American Girls in NYC. It is exciting for them – my daughter’s girlfriend did this for her daughter and she loved it.

      What I find off-putting is TSIL tweeting and Instagraming a play-by-play of the entire day from start to finish. If the motive was pure, maybe just one tweet and one pic would have been enough. But instead, she made very sure it was out there how she was being the benevolent mother/aunt during Teresa’s day in court. Just another example on a long list of her taking advantage and making it about her – instead of doing it quietly.

        The Destructive Narcissist will give details of everything she is doing once she takes the spot Teresa was once in, like when she destroyed relationships, the one that hurt Teresa the most was Jax, so TSIL had to shine a spotlight on what good times she was having with Jax with pics and all. She is working her way into the daughter’s lives. Teresa will see photos of TSIL cooking with her daughters and eating dinner together and playing down by the shore.

From the NPD person I know they are shameless braggarts! They are sneaky about it, at times, and they don’t even realise people can see right through them! I thought, when I seen Tsil was showing pics of her neice’s at Antoinia’s birthday, that she knew Tre’s court case was big news and she had to compete!

            I do not think TSIL expected Teresa and Juicy to get so much media coverage, that in of itself is beating the crap out of her ego lol. Also when a Taurus and a Gemnini are a couple they draw closer together when it feels like it is them against the world. Their love is a love that makes the world go away when they are in each others arms. That is why they were not rattled after the fight at the retreat. TSIL would know this about them. She probably was beside herself when Teresa said her and Joe are closer than they have ever been.

        As a parent, I would be concerned about someone knowing my child’s every move. There are some sick people in the world. If my child was one of the children with Melissa (which would never happen in a million years) I would be furious that she was letting the world know what and where my child was. What she does with her own kids is her business, but to exploit other children is appalling.

    What an amazing blog Famey, and such hard work! Much appreciated!!! I’m only part way through it (back on mega OT so night owling it) but just wanted to chime in a quick THANK YOU!

    PS: My first thought for Teresa – that years from now – when this crazy roller coaster ride she’s on evens out – she will at least have this blog (ARCHIVE IT Tre!!!) that tells the TRUE tale of her wild ride!

    PPS: And at least Poor Antonia finally got a freakin’ birthday party…too bad it took a federal indictment for this she-dog to display SOME kind of normal motherly interest in her daughter! #selfabsorbedskankmom (Could her positioning the ever popular Andy fave Milania right next to her fame whore azz?)

    I feel so sad for the Guidices I really wanted them to ‘win’ in-spite of all the malice, the plotting and backstabbing from so called friends and family. Now all Teresa’s hard earned money will go to sorting out this mess. I pray she doesn’t go to prison and the inevitable smug, gleeful and snide comments that will follow. No wonder Andy Cohen kept on badgering Tre about her legal issues (bankruptcy filling and Joe’s alleged misdeeds) in the season 3 reunion, he seemed to have had prior knowledge of the looming indictment.

      i wonder why just 3 girls had dolls?

        The other two probably were not interested. My daughter would have been at an art store dropping hundreds of dollars. She would rather have Copic markers than a doll. She would then draw a picture of the dolls…

          Hi Elemcee! I hope sending your outstanding son off to college wasn’t too sad for you. My son is still waiting to go to basic training! I do have a daughter and Hobby Lobby is her “dream” store! She is so crafty and talented when it comes to making “things” for her doll house I’m blown away! Her dad is a carpenter/wood worker so I can see where she would get that from!

          I was surprised that Tsil took Antonia’s guests to “American Girl”. I’m wondering if the girls were requested to bring money to buy their own dolls or if Tsil paid the bill? I was raised that you don’t ask for anything but your guests “presence’s” when inviting someone to your party. If your guest brought a present than you should feel greatful and thankful for the gift! I’m still like that when I plan a party for my kids. So, I see it kind of distastful when my kids are invited to a party and asked to bring money for a planned event! My parents both were health care professionals, (My dad an X-ray Tech and my mom a Nrse), so they could afford to take us bowling or to the movies for our birthday parties. Something fun that we, as kids, agreed to! I’m pretty sure that Tsil plans all events to Tsil’s liking! As if Antonia were to suggest, “I want to see Annie on Broadway, go to American Girl and then a high class restaurant to eat at so you and daddy can drink mixed drinks and wine!”. Yeah, right!

      The trial could yield a better result for Tre — instead of it looking like she cut a “deal” for Juicy to take the punishment for “her” crime, Tre could very easily be vindicated by a jury.

      At least this way she will, at a minimum, have the opportunity to get her side of the story out!

      And why on earth should Teresa agree to a plea bargain that would have her doing time of any amount if she really wasn’t involved at all with their finances, as Juicy has consistently said over the years, as others involved with them have confirmed? The forgery of a power of attorney in her name certainly suggests a great deal of subterfuge and lots of things going on behind her back!

    Sources are saying that filming for RHONJ will start early for Season 6 in order to capture as much of the Giudice trial as possible. Everything is about the all mighty dollar with Bravo – once again, made off the back of Teresa. They know she is their cash cow and they are going to milk her until she runs dry, regardless of what any possible consequences could be. How disgusting!!!!!

      My strong inclination is to pass on next season. I get that at some point Teresa signed a contract and is most likely obligated to continue.

      But I don’t think I want to watch another season of this family being exploited for ratings and money. The season 1 marathon yesterday brought home to me how far down in the gutter Bravo has sunk this show since the addition of the Walikes and Gorgas. It used to be fun.

      But the Gorgas and Walikies were signed on to specifically destroy someone – the very person whose coattails they are riding all the way to the bank.

      The show became too dark, too viscous and the behavior of some of the individuals (drunk Rosie, drunk or sober Richie, etc.) compounds it.

      I already feel that Bravo exploits the fact that Rosie is gay. I don’t care to see the Guidices fight a federal indictment for rating.

        Personally, I’d like Teresa to tell Bravo where to stick it and walk. If she has to do prison time so be it. She can do it and move on. As for the rest of the cast I couldn’t care less about them except I’d like Jac to do jail time for kicking the guy. She is my least fave “Housewife”. Bravo is encouraging bad behavior and for some reason a lot of “Fans” seem to eat this cr*p up. And another thing, I truly believe that Andy Cohen hates women and loves seeing them disgrace themselves.
        What’s the dirt on Laurita’s defrauding the cancer charity? Plus they have a lawsuit on stealing the idea for BLK water?
        Oh and Melissa and Joe are just gross in all departments. She wants to be a hip hop star? Gimme a break! Geesh!

    • August 16, 2013 at 10:45 AM

      It would be nice if Tre told Bravo, “I’ll film but fire Tsil and Kathy!”.

        I agree. I think what bothers me the most about next season will be all of the phony concern and caring the rest of the cast will show the Guidices – (all of them, including the Lauritas and Manzos) when in reality, they are gleefully rubbing their hands together.

        There but for the grace of God go any of them.

          Do you really think they will go so far as to express “concern,” NCGal?

          When I think of how terribly they’ve treated Teresa, knowing about this all along but abandoning her as a friend and doing everything that they could to ensure that her last few years with her husband as a family were as miserably difficult as humanly possible, it’s difficult to imagine that level of hypocrisy. Certainly, the backlash against them would be enormous.

      I don’t know who this site is or its “exclusive” source, but I would tend to believe this much more if it came from Fame.

      • August 16, 2013 at 11:28 PM

        Agreed Honnie. I remember when another site reported, exclusively and in all certainty, that Caroline and Jacqueline were definitely NOT coming back for season 5 and Kathy was only going to be a “friend of the housewives.” After that did not come to pass, the site owner never addressed it and was never called out on it. So many people claim to be “insiders.” BS.

    Hi everyone! Hope y’all are all well and your loved ones. Just now catching up. I hope everything works out well for Teresa and Joe. Those poor kids. Makes my stomach sick.

    Melissa can’t stop being a victim. I just wish the interviewer had said something about the sprinkle cookies not being all Tsil had done and mentioned Danielle

    On a side note: I left my husband alone for one night, to visit my sister and mother, guess what mischief he gets into? He and the neighbor ( his wife also left him alone, but just for an hour). Ordered bullfrogs. For our back yards!!!! We are waiting for the temp to cool off so they won’t die in route. When they come in we are having a bullfrog release party. Men want ya gonna do?

    Oh our trip, daughters graduation, business and a couple of days of site seeing, was a blast. Right up until we arrived at the park and ride at the airport, and discovered we had shipped the car keys home!!!!! We had to wait 2 hours for our niece to bring extra set. Haha!

    Melissa why are you even in the pictures for Antonia’s birthday? Has to be center of the universe!

    Of course BRAVO is going to try and take advantage. $$devils. I hope Teresa gives them nothing! They can’t make her talk about it around her house or with her friends or family in front of the cameras so I hope they make a pact to not say a word about it while bravo cameras are in their home or try and get other cast members to get them to talk about it on camera. I mean, Teresa’s already been through that, she should freeze them out on the subject during season 6 filming altogether. Let all the other cast members try and get viewers attention with their own lives and personalities, which of course they can’t but Teresa can.

    Poor TSIL! People talking about her because she’s famous. Especially when she didn’t go searching out fame against the advice of her sister-in-law Teresa Guidice! It’s a SHAME she feels like she’s being targeted and that there are unfounded rumors about her. Especially since that hasn’t happened to even ONE other cast member, like her sister-in-law Teresa Guidice.

    I tell you, that poor SIL of Teresa’s . . . her situation is just tragic.
