Teresa Giudice Takes Ice Bucket Challenge with Claims of Making Donations Despite Owing Creditors $13.4 Million

Teresa Giudice

As we reported yesterday, every Bravolebrity and their mother are doing the the ALS “Ice Bucket Challenge,” the challenge for charity sweeping the nation.

Now, convicted felon, Teresa Giudice, has hopped on the “publicity” bandwagon getting soaked in ice water and making claims of donating to the ALS Association.

Naturally, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star videotaped the event and posted it on her Instagram with the following caption:

thank you Dawn DeAngelo and all my fans for nominating me for the ALS ice bucket challenge! I would like to nominate Linda Berger, Josephine Adornetto, Teresa Petrozullo, and @nicolepeepas I am also donating to the ALS foundation! Everyone please donate and support this cause!”

On March 4, the couple pleaded guilty to a litany of serious felonies; wire fraud, mail fraud, loan application fraud and perjury. Teresa and her husband, Joe, stole over $5 million from numerous banks. However, in spite of their legal drama, Teresa and Joe continue to live lavishly, splurging on luxury vacations, expensive gifts and extracurricular activities for their kids. The couple exhibit classic sociopath traits. They have no remorse or guilt for their actions or the people they hurt.

Judging from Teresa’s criminal history with stealing from banks and creditors, I’ll hold my breath on her making donations to any charity.

Seriously, does Teresa Giudice even know the meaning of ALS or why she took the “Ice Bucket” challenge? Will this be a repeat of the cash only, no receipts incident? Tell us what you think. Sound off in the comments.

    Did she mail a copy of the video to the Honorable Esther Salas?

    • I’m sure the good ole judge has received her copy. smdh!

      • WestCoastFeed

        You have mail,

  • WestCoastFeed

    As I understand the rules, if you donate $100 then no one dumps a bucket of ice water on you. But if you’re a cheapskate and only give $10 then you get doused. Teresa got 2 buckets, so I guess she only gave $5.

    • TartLemon

      The rules never apply to Teresa do they?

    • twifan2

      Or a $1. :/
      Here’s the key part: if you accept the Ice Bucket Challenge, you still need to donate money, just anything less than $100. $1 is fine, $10 is great. ALSA recommends $35, $60, or $120, though you can donate however much you like.

      • Marsbars09

        I’m sure Tre will donate the least common denominator.
        Hi Twi!

        • twifan2

          Hi Hi Mars! 🙂

          That’s a given, Mars! She’ll send ALS an autographed pic of her!
          How nice 😀

  • Babson_Chick

    Wow – so impressive of her!!

  • Marsbars09

    Tre’s just participating in the ice bucket challenge to make herself look good to the public. She and Joe owe folks more than 13 million dollars. How can ALS take her donation or her concern seriously?

  • TartLemon

    Why doesn’t Teresa get it yet? ALL I want to see of her if at all is the perp walk. In the mean time, seeing her at least pretending to downsize by selling her faux treasures and looking for a smaller, cheaper place to live.

    I also want to know how she is staying afloat. The bankruptcy and legal proceedings don’t make the current living expenses stop. State local and Federal taxes on top of routine upkeep of that house must be astronomical. They still have to keep current on insurance, vehicles, utilities.

    What’s keeping them in that place?

    • Marsbars09

      Tart, all I can think of is she has her salary from Bravo and the money she makes from her promotional appearances.

      • TartLemon

        Teresa has gone from selling out arenas to not even being able to get a gig in a bowling alley. YET, she still spends the $$$ on expensive trips like Gia’s going to LA for the Kid’s Choice awards. Gia was signing autographs like she was a celebrity.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Well, she is also getting $5K a month for promoting her hair care stuff. Her appearance fee is probably drastically reduced from what she used to get.

          • Pinky Pie

            I don’t know if 5k per month would support Teresa’s lifestyle. Something is amuck here. Teresa isn’t good with money. I hope it all comes out. Wouldn’t it be funny if a gov. Official saw the cash only no receipts video, and Teresa has to do more trials and hearings. Teresa seems to think she is smarter and doesn’t hav to follow the rules. I fear she will get away with no jail. She is slimmy, but if she does, I hope the gob. Has been watching the last 6 months.

  • Marsbars09

    I didn’t notice Tre’s daughters were present at the ice bucket challenge? I just noticed it.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Except, I don’t see Gia there. Unless she is the one with her back to us. But Gia’s hair has been lighter than that lately.

    • RonnieIsBack

      All were there but queen Gia…she was probably getting her nails shellac’d..I need to check twitter lol

  • italiano bambino

    Anything for attention. ..

    • twifan2

      I want to know just how much EXACTLY did she donate!

      Hi Hi Bam! 🙂

      • italiano bambino

        Fucking nothing that bitch is sooo greedy. That’s what got her in the mess in the first place. GREED

        • Ahahahaha! EXACTLY!!!!!!

          • italiano bambino

            Right who is she fooling?

          • twifan2

            Herself. 😉

          • italiano bambino

            Hahaha crazy monkey

        • Pinky Pie

          Teresa must be mentally ill to have done the fraud thing, and to put her children and parents in this situation. Than, what was the worst, that got all the bad karma rolling her way was rubbing it in everyone’s face about how wealth the were. Teresa is still doing it with the latest Milania’ closet video. Teresa has to have some mental or social issue.

      • RonnieIsBack

        probably just the $10.00
        and a bottle of Fabellini

        • twifan2

          Pour that over her head instead of water! 😀

  • twifan2

    I want to know what the rule is for MULTIPLE challenges is! >(

  • twifan2

    WOW! 2 charities in ONE week! Tre bucking for sainthood?! 😀

    • Pinky Pie

      I hate to be mean, but she probably gets an appearance fee. I doubt she has a charitable bone in her body. If Teresa did this for free, she’s probably doing it so she can tell the judge how much she does for the community.

      • twifan2

        Hi Hi Pinky Pie! 🙂
        Oh you just know Tre is doing this charity work for FREE, so she can tell the judge of ALL her ‘good work’. 🙂
        All being done WITHIN the month she goes in front of the judge. 😀

        Anyone else remember her charity work(s) before these?
        Anyone?

        • Pinky Pie

          I vaguely remember some charity, in her area, asked her to come to an event, and she said not without my fee. It was something like that, and then she either did watch what happens live, or a different talk show and they called her on it. She did her usual double speak, sputtering about not getting a phone call about it, and she isn’t good at on the spot questions. Her lie was obvious. But, you’re I don’t remember free charity appearances. I think that is the norm, stars get paid to appear. My father in law was a hospital administrator, and told me he got letters from Bob Hope for an appearance at a hospital function. Bob’s appearance were costly. Beside the point, but I don’t think Teresa does much for free. This appearance is for “freedom,” meaning Teresa’s freedom. It’s more the judge than the charity. So, I’m with you.

        • WestCoastFeed

          I remember her gathering old clothes to give to victims of Hurricane Sandy. Some nice leopard and lame outfits.

        • Vince Foster, Jr.

          As far as I can tell, it was not a charitable event but rather they had a donation “jar” and the business kept the sales monies.

  • RonnieIsBack

    All her fan…
    This Bish

    • italiano bambino

      Lenna and lady T lol

      • twifan2

        Don’t forget Happy…! 🙂

        • italiano bambino

          BAHAHA

      • WestCoastFeed

        Hi, bambino. Whatever became of Lena and Lady T? Do you suppose they are still Tre Huggers?

        • italiano bambino

          Definitely tree huggers

  • italiano bambino

    juicy is doing the wine bucket challenge

    • twifan2

      And the bucket’s winning! 😀

      • italiano bambino

        Hahaha

  • She Stinks!

    Convicted felons and criminals never part with their stolen cash. She’ll never donate a cent. She thinks that doing this stunt is her contribution. Maybe she can donate, then skim a large portion off that dollar, just like her buddy Dina.

  • WestCoastFeed

    When asked what the charity was for, Teresa replied, “It’s for that guy who played Gary Cooper in the movies. You know, Emil Slerosis.”

    • BaybeK8s

      Good Morning WCF,
      *laughing* I was thinking of something similar. I in my mind I am always playing out Teresa’s responses in different scenarios.(I know, I need a hobby.) xoxo

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      teresa thinks she is the luckiest woman on the face of the earth

  • I’ll bet Teresa thought the ALS foundation would be paying her to get dumped with a bucket of ice water. Being that ALS is a worthy, prestigious national charity, I’ll bet they aren’t too pleased with a convicted felon promoting them. Just Sayin.

  • TopGear

    Is she still free? When is she going to jail?

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    I see no ice. It was probably warm water. (P.S., Teresa lies)

    • TopGear

      I thought the same. She’s not fooling me one bit.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Hey, Vince. Did you see any of the pix from Tre’s appearance yesterday? I swear Leotard Boy’s soul mate showed.

      • Vince Foster, Jr.

        Yeah, I saw his match.com mate

        • Vince Foster, Jr.

          Someone explain to me how match added that crap to my post

  • WestCoastFeed

    I think the video above illustrates what I have been saying about Milania getting away with her bad behavior because of her size. Compare her to her sisters. There is 4 year old Audriana next to her. She is 8 and her 9 year old sister, Gabriella, is next to her mom. Just judging by seeing them together, I would have guessed that Milania is 6.

    • murlut

      My child would have lost phones, ipods, tv and probably been paddled if they every acted like she does

  • murlut

    I am sure she donated to her FAVORITE charity, HERSELF

    • twifan2

      *CASH ONLY* No Receipts, murlut! 😀

  • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

    Hey Doc. I was crusin’ through one of Tre’s old haunts today.
    No not Patterson or Franklin Lakes.
    I was in Little Guyana! LOL!
