Joe Mastropole: Joe Giudice’s Former Business Partner Wants The Giudice’s Locked Up

Posted on Dec 7 2014 - 1:39pm by BeachSpin

Teresa And Joe Giudice Court Appearance

When All About The Tea published a blog analyzing how “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star, Teresa Giudice, and her husband’s criminal activity affects the everyday man, most readers were shocked to read the extensive list of small businesses and individuals that were stung by the reality couple’s fraud spree. While the lengthy document stuns, it still remains difficult to fathom the sheer number of people that were ultimately harmed, when banks were defrauded, and small businesses weren’t paid.

The latest Giudice ploy to wiggle free from accepting responsibility, is to characteristically heave the guilt on someone else, as evidenced by the malpractice lawsuit the Giudices have filed against their bankruptcy attorney, Jim Kridel, ultimately blaming him for their pending address change. That decision has triggered one of victims to speak out, expressing his disgust with the slammer bound pair.

Joe Mastropole, Joe Giudice’s ex-business partner and former pal, was rooked when Joe forged his signature on a mortgage document for a jointly owned property, which resulted in Giudice pocketing a sizable wad of cash. Mastropole vented his frustration to Radar, clearly outraged at the couple’s latest slippery tactic.

 “That’s typical of them, They use their lawyers and accountants [as fall guys].”  He also added “They always blame others for their frauds,”

Mastropole shifted to a more personal tone, venting,

“They’re bull-sh**ters. They’re horrible people. I don’t know how they live with themselves,” 

Mastropole filed a civil suit against Giudice in October 2009, and won a judgement of $260k, with the judge describing Guidice’s behavior as producing a “extraordinary web of lies and misrepresentations”.   While the bankruptcy was denied, and the debt still stands, the process will be a lengthy one, and the long line of businesses waiting to collect leaves Mastropole doubtful that he will ever see what is rightfully owed him.

“I’m out about $400,000 in attorney fees,” he said. “I’ll probably never get my money. I was better off letting them rip me off and not hiring my attorney. I should have just walked away.”

The desperate lawsuit also makes one wonder WHERE in the world is the money coming from to pay a lawyer? Mastropole articulated that point and blasted the shifty couple, while challenging their current legal team.

“Where are they getting the money for that? They should take that money they’re using to sue the lawyer and pay their debts!”   He also remarked,  “The lawyer that they’re using to sue the other lawyer, if it’s not a favorable decision they will probably sue that lawyer also!”

Good point. Anyone representing Team Giudice had better watch their backs. It is apparent that this reality couple will stop at nothing to shift the blame, and squirm free from any responsibilities that cause them discomfort. Ask Joe Mastropole.

    You know, the more information that comes out about how the Giudices’ scammed people the bigger POS they make themselves out to be.
    I’d like to hear from more people, other than Joe M., that Giudices’ have cheated out of money. I think the attorneys work with the Giudices’ will bite them in the ass. They are really Godless, soulless people.

    • Hi Marsie. Can you imagine all the people they scammed? Just to hear their stories would be heart breaking while fascinating. All the TreHuggers who continue to love this woman truly have NO regard for the pain of others. They are likely very selfish people who feel no compassion for the pain of others UNLESS they are personally affected.

      • Marsbars09

        Hey Doc! You’re right. What these stans probably don’t realize is that Tre & Joe would most likely steal, lie, and cheat from them. Tre & Joe have no loyalty to anyone but themselves.

  • Trippinhhard

    This man will never see a penny of his money, plus his attorney fee.. These are two of the worse grifters I’ve ever seen. They have no remorse and still live in the lap of luxury. When will they be put out of their house?? They don’t deserve to live there, while the rest of us have to pay for what we get.. Ugh
    Prison can’t come fast enough

  • WestCoastFeed

    All Joe Mastropole has gotten from his lawsuits is that the original property is now all his.

    • misstc

      Lawyers R the only ones who make a bundle. We took a crook who didn’t want to pay us, (my husband & me) to small claims court; we won, but NEVER saw a penny of the award because the azzwipe ran out of town. So being out of $4,000 plus court fees, filing fees; it only cost us more money & never saw a dime.

  • misstc

    Very interesting how Melissa & Gorga kept their heads down & mouths silent throughout this season-not, INHO, to support the Juicys, but to not draw attention on themselves. One reason could be Joe Juicy said he taught Gorga everything about “the business:, if anyone else remembers that from last year’s season? I wonder if there is a chance the Gorgas learned the tricks of the trade from Joe, could be they are covering up tracks?

    • WestCoastFeed

      I remember Teresa saying that Juicy taught Joey the building business. I don’t remember anyone else saying the same thing. In my opinion it is far more likely the Pete Giudice is busy covering his tracks, than that the Gorgas are.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Was it Joe Mastropole who gave the Feds that information they needed when they added two more indictments to Tre and Juicy? I suspect so. Those are the charges stemming from her falsely claiming real estate agent’s income with Cresthill Realty, when in truth she was a stay-at-home housewife. Cresthill was the name of Joe Mastropole’s business. At least he was able to get a little revenge.

    • colleen

      West Coast, Good question about
      Mastrople being last 2 counts. Juicy feels no qualms signing others’ name to contracts. Repulsive. I wonder how Juicy got caught for drivers licence scam using brothe’rs identity.. Did brother rat on him? Hope so

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        Colleen not only did Juicy forge Joe M’s signature. He freakin’ forged the notarys too!

    • Dana

      Mastropole gave the feds info to save his own neck. He’s crooked.

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        But the people CONVICTED of forging signatures & stealing $13.4 mil aren’t Dana?
        You are sooo damn quick to jump on others but yet defend these 2 low life thieves to the ends of the earth. Hypocrite much???

        • Dana

          I wasn’t defending the Giudices, I know they are crooked. I’m pointing out Mastropole is also.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            But you ONLY ever point out others peoples foibles. Other peoples lies & scams. You never, ever say what thieves the Giudices are! Like with like right?
            So if Joe M is crooked, & Juicy was his partner… what does that make Tre & Juicy?

          • Nene robs kids

            Did he have a gun to Joe Giudice’s head when Joe forged his signature on loan documents?

      • Nene robs kids

        If you think Teresa and Joe didn’t give info to the feds you’re really out of touch!

      • twifan2

        AND who did the Juicy rat out on so as NOT to indicted on all 41 counts?!

      • Poo

        BS. iI didn’t hear of a plea deal, did you?

      • Nene robs kids

        Where was he ever charged or took a plea deal? I’ll wait

  • Dana

    Mastropole wasn’t saying bad things about Joe Giudice when he was helping him commit fraud.

    • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

      & Juicy didn’t have a problem with Joe M until he got caught stealing. So what’s YOUR point Dana?

      • Dana

        One is no better than the other. Both committed fraud.

        • twifan2

          So what’s your point then???

        • Nene robs kids

          Over a quarter million dollars and Joe Giudice forged Mastropole’s signature on a loan BOOM

      • Dana

        They committed fraud together. Joe got greedy. Mastropole is behaving like a scorned girlfriend. I have no respect for Mastropole.

        • Nene robs kids

          Really? Joe forged the mans signature to get a loan!

          • Dana

            I’m talking prior to that.

          • Nene robs kids

            And?

        • Anne Green

          Where is your proof Dana? I mean we have the proof that Teresa and Joe committed fraud. Where is your proof that Mastropole committed fraud?

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿
          • Addie2U

            This guy’s still waiting from several months ago. (I so enjoy reading your comments, please don’t wait too long)☺

          • Dana

            Mastropole was working with Joe Giudice when he made his fraudulent millions. You all love to claim Joe stole from the banks. There is no way Mastropole could have been Joe’s business partner and not be a part of the fraud.

          • twifan2

            Show me the proof then.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Oh so using your logic.. Then that means since Teresa is Juicy’s wife there’s NO WAY she could NOT be part of the fraud too RIGHT???

          • Addie2U

            Mr. Giudice specifically stated that he signed “whatever the bank gave” him. And it was ruled in a court of law that Mastropole’s signature was forged. So how does that make it Mastropole’s fault??!!

          • Dana

            I’m not denying Giudice forged Mastropole name. All I’m saying is they use to be thick as thieves. Giudice got greedy.

          • Addie2U

            You can’t deny, that seems to be a common theme with the Giudices?!

          • v blackwell

            Dana, I’m not going to insult you or call you names. You’re entitled to your opinion. It’s admirable that you stand up for what you believe, but it is disconcerting that you seem to be so gullible in the face of facts and evidence. Please be careful in life.

          • teresa_the_convict

            let me explain it to this nitwit his partner was not charged with anything so stfu

          • v blackwell

            According to that, there’s no way Tre could have been a loving, involved, supportive wife who shared an intimate, trusting partnership with her husband and not been a part of the fraud too.

        • Nene robs kids

          So if someone forged your signature and got a loan for over 250,000 dollars and you take them to court and win a judgement that makes you a scorned girlfriend? Lets hope it doesn’t happen to you

        • Addie2U

          Curious, do you have respect for Teresa & Joe?

          • Dana

            I’ve met them both at a book signing and they were very sweet to me. I do feel sorry for their girls. Everyone makes mistakes. They’ll both do their time and be bigger than ever.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Oh yeah Addie, This BS scamming & thieving started at least a year before Tre was ever picked to be on RHNJ.

          • v blackwell

            Dana, thankfully, we don’t go to prison for “mistakes”. The Giudices are criminals, liars, cheaters and thieves who exploited innocent people. Insincere hustlers who manipulate people are not “sweet”. You’re probably right about 1 thing. They’ll be “bigger then ever”….at crime that is. They will have learned more while they’re “away”. : {

    Okay using Dana’s logic here. She says that, “I’m not denying Giudice forged Mastropole name. All I’m saying is they use to be thick as thieves.” Hmmm…
    http://media3.giphy.com/media/jEHmYYfq7cGbu/200.gif

    So by using that logic, considering how close Juicy & Tre are & the simple fact that Tre is Juicy’s wife after all.This must mean that Tre does know all about the scams & lies, right?

            Yet another point, proving that Tre is NOT the innocent, naive, obedient wife who simply – trustingly – signed on the dotted lines, per her husband’s “commands”.

            Same here T-Lily. I would have to use my boxing skills to check that person. 😉

    • v blackwell

      Imo, Tigerlily, there’s nothing innocent about Tre. I think her greed and demands are actually what drove Juicy on his criminal rampage. Teresa, though not intelligent, is shrewd and devious. I think she knew about his shadiness, encouraged it and jumped in with her “W2 forms” after she became emboldened, thinking they were getting away with the crimes. She was well aware of her deceit in her bankruptcy claims. She had to have been aware of Juicy’s driver license escapade. Why would she have been kept in the dark from the rest of it? To me, they were full partners in crime.

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        I think she is quite devious. Between the two of them the have half a brain, except when it comes to lying, cheating, thieving, etc., etc. You get the picture I’m sure.

        • v blackwell

          I do and speaking of pictures, I absolutely luv the stuff you come up with!

  • Poo

    I am beginning to think that Dana is a hack paid by Teresa’s publicist to keep Teresa’ opinions on the blogs. I talked her down on realiytea. com. She didn’t come back and fight like a “true believer” normally would. Her opinions have no substance….sort of like Teresa’.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      That makes sense. We know Dana is a schill for Teresa, so that makes more sense than anything else.

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        Wonder if it’s a typo & it’s actually Dina? LOL! JK!

        • twifan2

          You never know, T-Lily! 😀
          Notice she doesn’t use BIG words…MILANIA!!!!

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Well she didn’t use the word butthole yet, so the jury’s still out on that one. Oops I said jury!

        • Pinky Pie

          I thought it was Dina, also. I thought it because it is Dina like behavior. She spreads her garbage then runs like the wind. Exactly as stated above. (No arguing with stupid) I got the same treatment. She told me she was going to block all my future comments. Even yelled “you again” all I did was respond to her insults about my posts.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Pinky, Dina is not nice and certainly no Zen about her. Ignore her. She’s just a trouble maker and pot stirer!!!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Dana is much nicer than Dina. I may not agree with Dana, but she is unfailingly polite to me.

          • Pinky Pie

            You got that right! Thanks for the heads up! I will follow your lead!

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      Realty Tea used to delete my tweets. Nazis.

          Permanently, in my case.

          • Marsbars09

            Hi WCF! RT really seemed to have a problem with you. I wonder what that was about?

          • twifan2

            Stupidity on their part, Mars!

          • WestCoastFeed

            I think Mary didn’t like it when I showed her up. She is still sloppy about fact checking.

          • Marsbars09

            It’s a shame when a poster verifies facts after a supposedly reputable journalist is supposed to do it before posting a blog.

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

      • twifan2

        They still do, Vince. >(

        • Vince Foster, Jr.

          That’s why I don’t post over there that must. They like to control the comments.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Then why even bother having a comment section if you’re going to delete or ban people because they post their opinions?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Just recently I learned that they delete anything with the word “tea” in it. Why? Because people mentioned this website too often? Or they didn’t want anyone criticizing Reality Tea? I don’t know.

      • Poo

        It’s happened to me on occasion Vince but not recently. Now Bravo is another story. If I sign on, can’t make comments on videos. I think calling Teresa’s fans the Teresa mafia did not go over well with the powers that be. Hardly give a c@@@p anymore. Just go to look at the schedule

        • Addie2U

          I remember the “good ole days” chatting on the Bravo blogs. Some nights the housewives or their kids (Ashlee!) would chime in & heat things up!

    PLEASE BE ADVISED:

          Hello Doc! Happy Sunday!
          Seems like Chrome is the issue, not the site. I switched to Firefox & have not had any problems.

          • Oh That’s good to know. I use Chrome religiously and have no problem at all. Firefox and the dreaded Internet Explorer never work for me.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            I usually do too. But it froze on me before & took too long to refresh so I switched browsers. Haven’t had any issues with Firefox.

          • Firefox moves like a dinosaur for me.

    • Hmmm….I’m not having any of the issues you described.

    • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

      Hi Mary. I’m not having these issues at all. Maybe you should email the mod instead posting this? Just a suggestion.

      • Mary Stonehouse

        Tigerlily, I’m not very sophisticated when it comes to streams, maybe I’m not smart enough to keep up with you all.

        • twifan2

          Oh don’t say that, Mary Stonehouse!
          We can help you. 🙂

          • Mary Stonehouse

            I just went on and I didn’t have a problem. One person said they did, I hope it cleared up! Maybe, I should have waited, but I love the information being given, and the witty replies. As I said before, I was removed several times for saying negative things about Teresa on another stream, so this is so refreshing to me!

          • twifan2

            No worries, Mary Stonehouse! 🙂

            Dina isn’t a ‘criminal’, but I wouldn’t defend her. 😀

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            True. Neither would I. I should have used the word arseholes. Don’t defend arseholes.

          • Some say Dina stole from her charity. I don’t think her hands are entirely clean.

          • twifan2

            I believe that. BUT until I can see the legal action/document that is taken against her-then I can’t pull a Dana’. 🙁

      I was just sharing with the others about your tweet asking Tre if she was gonna be honest about the funding for the girls 3KT video.

      • Vince Foster, Jr.

        They now claim they have two corporate sponsors. I wonder who they are? The IRS and the banks?

        • Such BS. Corporate sponsors donate for advertisement. Corporations want their names splashed on everything.

        • WestCoastFeed

          For that group, I think one of the sponsors was “Pedophiles R Us.”

          • OH SNAP! Would it shock you if they were? Their mothers are pimping them out to the highest bidders.

          • Addie2U

            And to think I just wrangled all the paperwork to have my weekly contributions to Children’s charities switched to Gia’s girl group & now I have to cancel it!

            Chats was going to contribute $ so he could be in their music video. Now he won’t be able to. He’s heart broken!

            Because Teresa lies so much, how do we know the actual number of big contributors? Who actually gave the money? Sneaky , Table-Flipper, Tre, can and will manoeuvre whatever she can. Oh, please, I can’t wait until this felon finally surrenders to her jail term!

          • Addie2U

          • itsjustme

            My guess is the “sponser” is from Italy. They are probably funneling back some of the money they sent over there to hide from the feds and somehow are getting sent back to them. How else can they still be living in that monstrosity they call a house and invest money into that first video.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Great guess, itsjustme! Joe is a seasoned criminal, with family ties to Italy.
            Oh yes, I have always thought that mausoleum of a home was a grandiose monstrosity. And, don’t get me started on the terrible but pricey furnishings. How uncomfortable that whole setup is.

    Welp ……………. that’s the whole purpose of them being locked up……….. they stole money and can’t pay it back.. Any other people they stole from will probably NEVER see their money again… That’s why they were sentenced to prison…. I wonder if they money they make after they get out of prison will be garnished. I don’t know how that works. I KNOW Teresa will hit the ground running with tv contracts again when she gets out. ……….. Bravo is going to cash in

    • twifan2

      Garnishment of her wages has already been given the ok.
      I don’t think Bravo is going to ‘cash in’ with Tre. She’s going to wind up to be a liability for them. Remember, Tre blamed Bravo for her probs. NOT a good thing to bite the hand that feeds you.

      • Addie2U

        I would hope the powers that be at Bravo are smart enough to step far away from Teresa. She’ll turn on them in a heartbeat & sue them also. Scary thought, but can you imagine the Giudice’s running Bravo?!

        • twifan2

          😀
          The Juicys can’t even run their own scams, much less Bravo!
          Good one, Addie2U! 🙂

        • v blackwell

          The hell with “step away”, Addie. If “the powers that be” don’t want to be “The Powers That WERE” at Bravo, they’ll RUN away as fast and as far as they can from Teresa.
          I think TRE imagines she’s running Bravo. If so, she’s only running it into the ground.

          • Addie2U

            I concur v. ☺

    • noarguingwithstupid

      I sure won’t be watching. Enough of that criminal!!

    • Sorry to bust your bubble, Bonita but I highly doubt Teresa Giudice will become the BIG star after prison you stated. She’s tainted goods. Networks will run from her NOT to her.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        spread the truth Spread!!!! I am sure many fans of hers will be disappointed, but such is life!!!! I for one will be a happy camper to never see her face again!!

      • Addie2U

        Exactly. Who wants to hire a sue happy, convicted felon with a nasty temper, has a husband with a nasty temper & rude children?

      • Pinky Pie

        I’m thinking her only hope is Italy, and she doesn’t speak Italian. I doubt anyone would want her.

        • Flanagan

          The way she mangles English, God knows what she would do if she tried to take on Italian. It would be fun to watch though. But just for a few minutes. The thought of listening to nasally Italian with her New Jersey accent is just short of the quintessential nails on the chalk board.

          • Pinky Pie

            Oh, it would be too funny for words! 🙂 I have to say, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel through Europe, many times. While people talk about the French, my experience in Italy was they want to hear their language. Italian’s can get pretty snippy when they can’t understand you. Can you imagine how annoyed they would be with her! HA! I would love to watch. Teresa pretends to speak Italian yet she didn’t even know how to pronounce her own last name. 🙂 🙂

          • Flanagan

            She would probably have to write it phonetically on the palm of her hand.

          • Pinky Pie

            Lol! Too funny. But, sadly right!

          • Flanagan

            Then by the time she looked at it, she probably would have sweated all the ink off. Now THAT would be some fun watching!

          • v blackwell

            Well there certainly isn’t any room to write it on her forehead, Flanagan.

          • Flanagan

            What is with the forehead? I know she can’t help it, but it’s such a curiosity. Wonder if there’s anything like it in the Mutter Museum.

        • That poor country. She’s such an embarrassment.

          • Pinky Pie

            I think Teresa is an embarrassment to humans! Teresa is a mess. Bad at just about everything. I would like to know where she got her magic mirror. Her ego is outrageous!

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Who wants to work with a convicted felon anyway??? There are even t.v. shows telling how hard it is to find work as an ex-con. Are you really thinking this through????

    • TartLemon

      Martha Stewart has smarts, a BILLION $$ and her own mega corporation but she has not been able to bounce back to preprison in your face (tv) popularity.

      Teresa’s only talent is showing off the stuff she STOLE and selling her face as a faux celebrity on products. I’ve read many times that Teresa will bounce back, but I just don’t see that happening. Especially since, even after sentencing she has not accepted responsibility for her CRIMES. Teresa knows what she did wrong, because she apologized to her fan(s?). Not one single word of acknowledgement to her VICTIMS.

      • Addie2U

        And the only reason she apologized to her fans is so they’ll continue to buy the products she’s schlepping.

        • Poo

          I have my never purchase from housewives list. Teresa, Brandi , Ramona, Bethany and Vicki. If Kenya tries to schlep anything.. She is on the list too. Oh and throw anybody else who is into hair extensions or wigs……

        • Exactly! She had the nerve to apologize to her fans but not her victims. She has no shame!

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

          I just about freaked when she snapped back that she NEVER hurt anybody. She said she never caused anyone harm. Nearly lost my chit, right then & there.
          54 individuals, businesses & vendors. $13.4 million & she never hurt anyone!

          • Addie2U

            Andy: “You said before on the show you didn’t understand why this was happening to you, now you understand?”

            Tre: “When I say it like that I mean, like uh, I was sayin’ it like, uh . .
            . I mean I understand now, like fully, you know in black & white. I understand it but eh, er, but when I was sayin’ meaning like I never really, I meant like how could, ya know like, eh, er I mean I never hurt anyone. I never tried to hurt anyone; I was never malicious to anyone . . . like behind their back. That’s what I meant when I was sayin’ that. But I understand . . . & why it’s happening cause in black & white because eh, ya know what I was signing & like . . . so sometimes Andy, uhm, I don’t know how . . . I’m misunderstood by the way I say things.

            It took our lil’ Tre nearly 4 ½ minutes to squeak that out! Maybe someone will give Tre a talk show (a really looooong talk show), when she get out! ☺ (I can honestly say that was one of the toughest 4.5 minutes of transcribing I’ve ever done. It was like transcribing a foreign language!)

      • Well said, TartLemon. Also, most of Teresa’s pre-prison team has dismantled. The people that use to whisper in her ear during interviews and write her blogs are gone. Her career is over and it’s about time.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Hmm, you are right, no posts from Heather MacLean lately.

      • Pinky Pie

        Martha said in a post prison interview that she lost a lot of money because of that. Teresa is no Martha. I doubt she would last more then a couple episodes even if she was lucky enough to get them. People dislike her too much for her to have any career.

      • Poo

        There is no comparison , Martha is smart.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      You are dreaming!!!!

        One person’s dream is a NIGHTMARE for millions of others, noarguing.

    • Poo

      Bonita , I think she may have had a slim chance to get back on Bravo, but this most recent lawsuit has disgusted so many people that her fan base is now almost nonexistent . She was never a “star” just a reality person who has been proven to steal millions of dollars from others. She now represents what Americans find disgusting and distasteful in a housewife from any city in the US. Greed, avarice and a lack of moral conscience. If Andy Cohen tries to bring her back, he may well go down with her.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I really don’t think there is going to be anyone clamouring for a Teresa Show when she gets out. She really doesn’t offer anything unless it involves spending or fighting with family. Even Andy seemed really surprised in the WWHL when she was talking about working to pay off debts.

    • itsjustme

      I wonder what the order of paying back is. I know the government gets their piece of the pie firs. After that I’m not sure. Would it be the banks and then trickle down from there?
      If that is the case, then people like Joe’s ex business partner will never see his money. My guess is his grandkids may see some, but no one before than.

  • equinox2009

    Bravo stated they won’t be filming RHONJ until she’s out. Is Bravo really thinking they can bring her back and people will watch? What scares me people will watch just to see her after prison giving Bravo support for the show! Please, please people don’t give them one minutes time if they do bring her back. That’s what Bravo is hoping people will watch.

      Yes, they really think so and they’re probably right. Ratings is the name of the game. It’s hard to imagine that the ratings aren’t way down. It’s disgusting, equinox, that Bravo wasn’t boycotted when they didn’t drop the Giudices immediately after they admitted guilt….before “denying” it ever since. Did you read that Bravo has offered Tre a cooking show after her release? If so, do you know if that’s true?

        • v blackwell

          Wow and thank you again. I so like that article much – much – much better than the one stating she’s getting another show. I wonder why Bravo doesn’t come out and deny the damn cooking show BS.

      • Flanagan

        Just a rumor. Not that Andy Cohen wouldn’t love to jump on THAT bandwagon.”For all you Ladies out there in TV land who are waiting for YOUR turn to do a stint in prison, we have a real, genuine convicted felon, fresh out of the clink, to show YOU how to turn that prison slop into something that can pass for real food while you’re doing time! Well, almost real food, but what the heck! Here she is! Teresa Giudice, and her first episode of Out of Prison, But Still Full of #%$@#!”

        • Pinky Pie

          I remember when Martha Stewart got out, one of her first shows she demonstrated how to make a meal from commissary food on a can of Sterno. It was very funny coming from Martha. Then, she went from a major network to a lesser one. Is her program even still on?

          • Flanagan

            Dang, I missed that one. I believe she has shows that are on some of the PBS stations. I don’t know if they are new shows, or reruns.

          • Pinky Pie

            Oh, yes, it was good. Martha Stewart smiled through the whole show as she made fun of herself. She talked about, I think it was her cell mate, teaching her to crochet. Martha did it all with grace and dignity, something Teresa Giudice could never pull off. But, then, Martha could speak coherent English. So, I really do not think Teresa could hold an audience. Her only talents are showing off her stolen goods, yelling, screaming, and fighting. Occasional table flip included.

          • Flanagan

            Teresa is the quintessential manufactured celebrity. There is no talent behind that mask of befuddlement, and yes, her “fame” comes from her histrionics. Martha Stewart was already an established professional, who, shall we say, hit a bump in the road, picked herself up, and went on. Teresa’s fallen into a sink hole, and is frantically trying to claw her way out. But, we must all remember, It’s Not Her Fault!

          • v blackwell

            Hi again, Flanagan. Thank God…..it’s a mask. I think Teresa was actually spawned in a sink hole and has wrangled to “claw her way out” ever since. Now for the rest of the day, “It’s Not Her Fault”, will be ringing in my ears. thanks to you!
            Btw, have you heard from, or seen any posts, from Kyle? I can’t find her.

          • Flanagan

            Spawned in a sink hole-yes, and the frightening thought is surely, more of their sub-species are running lose. I think they’re extras on The Walking Dead.
            Well, I got back from getting my head light fixed. Seems it’s the entire unit that’s broken. $425 to fix it. Ouch.
            So, because of that costly and unexpected surprise, our weekend pre Christmas soiree is, sadly, getting an emergency menu change. It will still be surf and turf, but with fish sticks and hot dogs. I hope everyone has a sense of humor.
            Have not seen Kyle at all…..time for a search party.

          • v blackwell

            Oh for the love of whatever! Murphy’s Law strikes again. If it’s any consolation, I rented a car to go to Fl the other day. Had it insured to the max – with no deductibles – for everything they offered. Returned the car, was driving mine home, ran into a tree and Smashed the front end, Flanagan. Well at least we weren’t hurt. I was convinced Sebastian had a concussion but the vet didn’t think so.
            Fish sticks and hot dogs? Really??? I’m afraid it’s going to require a LITTLE more than a sense of humor. Have you considered canned salmon and beef tofu or a run to the local food bank? Best wishes.

          • Flanagan

            Oh blackwell, my dear, how scary!! How fortuitous you decided to get the max insurance for the rental, then banged up your own car. That turned out well. #$&$@!. Makes my headlight repair sound rather paltry. I hesitate to ask about the damages, but thank goodness you and poor Sebastian came out in one piece. What animal category, if I may ask, is Sebastian? Love that name. So dignified and regal.
            Hmmm….your critique of my re-thought out menu does give me pause. Salmon….perhaps salmon croquettes? Don’t know how well beef tofu would be received, but I could get away with meatballs.
            Okay, things are looking up now. Thanks to you, blackwell, I believe the menu will now be a success!
            (I’ll save the food bank for the next culinary catastrophe.) And SO sorry about the car. Whenever it’s car vs tree, tree ALWAYS wins. I guess that’s why they make houses out of trees.

          • v blackwell

            OH, Flanagan, my dear, you never, ever fail to entertain. No-ooo, a 500.00 headlight repair isn’t paltry, particularly just before THE major holiday of the year. Misery does love company though (sigh).
            Sebastian IS a dignified and regal canine (Weimaraner). Highly intelligent with an overload of personality. I hope your wild life menagerie is doing well and won’t be on an unanticipated drastic diet due to budgetary restraints.
            Somehow, I visualize your menu to be a culinary delight. Croquettes and meatballs, though delish, don’t seem to quite fit expectations for a holiday gathering (Lent perhaps?)
            At least with the car meets tree episode, I learned a lesson. Money doesn’t grow on trees …. dammit!

          • Flanagan

            Ah Sebastian. A handsome Weimaraner. They always look like they’re deep in thought, as if pondering the meaning of life.
            I took advantage of the Black Friday sale at Petsmart and loaded up on cat and critter food, so they can all breathe easy. Ordinarily I would never venture out on this day of days, but the lure of half priced kitty litter and bargain basement critter food was enough to spring me into action. And, I wasn’t particularly worried about crazed, out of control mob violence at the pet supply store.
            Our pre Christmas festivities are for a few friends who are otherwise busy on Christmas day, as most people are. We do have 4 friends who always share Christmas day with us.
            Anyway, they’re a good group, and I actually think they will find the revised menu extremely humorous.
            That elusive money tree. I picture a stately oak, with bills, instead of leaves, fluttering in the breeze. Remember when your parents first told you “Money doesn’t grow on trees”. My first thought was “Well where DOES it grow then?”

        • v blackwell

          Jesus, Mary and Joseph, Flanagan! You’re STILL at it. You literally take a brush and paint pictures with your words….and with such humor. If you’re not an author – or at least a writer – you definitely missed your calling, Flanagan!

          • Flanagan

            Hey blackwell, thanks so much for the nice words! A few people have actually suggested that I collect the anecdotes of when I was growing up in the 50’s and 60’s and commit them to paper for all posterity. Those really were the most wonderful times. There was an innocence to them that is gone forever. Case in point: I was TWELVE years old when I learned the horrible truth about “where babies come from, and how they get here”. Sex Education in the 7th grade. And of course, it didn’t take long before that universal realization dawned on me, as it has for all children down through the ages–My parents did WHAT????? I still believe a star rose in the east the day I was born, and I arrived by some mystical conduit, and plopped on my mother’s lap. Behold! An infant! It’s all yours!
            For some things, denial is the best way to go.

          • v blackwell

            You so deserve the “nice words’ and you’re most welcome, Flanagan. You actually should seriously consider committing them to paper. You’ve got a brand new born niece to entertain for years to come! OMG, please, please say you don’t have a Dec birthday. Were you possibly born in a manger?
            Seriously, it’s depressing that the innocence of childhood is so very fleeting now.
            PS For some things, denial is the ONLY way to go. I don’t have a concept on how I got here but I do know it wasn’t the “usual’ conception….not MY mother and daddy.

          • Flanagan

            I arrived here fresh as a daisy in May. In fact, this is funny-My Mother’s birthday was in February, my sister’s in March, my brother’s in April, mine in May, my sister who passed away in June, my Granny’s in July, and my Dad’s in August. So we had birthday cake for 7 months in a row!
            It is certainly is sad, isn’t it, that children don’t have the lives we had. The entire concept of S-E-X was an unknown entity. I remember my mother and sister tsk-tsking about one of her high school friends being pregnant, and I couldn’t understand why. I thought some ladies got pregnant, like some people get the measles, and others escaped it. I do remember my mother mentioning something about “fertilization”, and all I could think of was my dad tossing plant food on the grass. No wonder it was such an earth shattering shock when I was faced with the whole sordid truth.
            And, yes, we are in 100% agreement-WE did not come about THAT way!!

      • equinox2009

        Hi V Blackwell. I really haven’t heard about a cooking show-seems like Bravo will do anything to get her back on Bravo I did read something, a little ditty not on Bravo about her real ability to cook. The comment had to with if she really can and does cook why would she not be using appropriate pans like chefs do, not the aluminium pans we see in her kitchen! It actually was funny with many people laughingly commented! I don’t care whether she can cook, I just feel it’s wrong to take her back on tv. I am counting on people to support that. Happy day, V

  • Jill

    U fools believing no 1 will watch Tre pick herself back up & dust ppl like u off her shoulders, is a joke. It’s human nature to want ppl to redeem themselves & derive strength from watching, bravo is very much aware of this, what will u ppl write about then,

    • SDC

      It’s funny that you’re commenting and acting as if Teresa and Joe give any kind of f*ck about you. They are sociopaths, dumb ones at that. They can’t even lie properly. In fact, they can’t even talk properly, period. Teresa has to hire people to tell her what to say. So yes, they may pick themselves back up, but they owe $13 million. Let’s be honest, that debt will be passed down onto their children and maybe grandchildren. They royally screwed not only themselves, but their family. As Joe Mastropole said: they are very bad people. You cannot make someone grow a conscience… or a brain.

      • Hi SDC. All her crazy fans act like Teresa gives a rats ass about them. They are one delusional bunch.

        • SDC

          I think the only thing she sees when she sees her fans are dollar signs. I have to keep reminding myself that in most cases, people are like those who they follow, so there’s not much we can do. #CantCureStupid

            Tre & her huggers: “The only guaranteed way to be a genius is to surround yourself with idiots.”

    • You have the nerve to call us fools with this unintelligible babble. You’ve proven our point about her fans.

      • Addie2U

        Re Tre & her huggers:
        “The only guaranteed way to be a genius is to surround yourself with idiots.”

        • v blackwell

          Tre said to watch for her next coming attraction….. a Suit Against the Guarantor. She’s lost years of surrounding herself with ‘idiotic fans’ but the ONLY thing she hasn’t been accused of is being a genius, Guest.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            v, I guess Joe and Tre Bugger each married idiots; a marriage made in purgatory! Yes I said Bugger, gross I know, but it fits!

          • v blackwell

            “Bugger”? SHOCKING! I’m shocked, I tell you!!! (moment to recover…..)
            Whew, ok, the palpitations have slowed now. There you go again, mRs! Purgatory is a mere pit stop on the way to heaven. Juicy describes it as a marriage made in Hell.
            PS I think you’re a Sugar Bugger, Mary. There, I said it too.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            I said Purgatory because they could have redeemed themselves through suffering and good works, but as usual Joe and Tre Bugger tipped the scales toward hell and blew their chance.

          • v blackwell

            They blew their chances because they suck and deserve (almost) any loss they may suffer. It’s a shame the Buggers didn’t consider the scales of justice before they went on their crime sprees, Mary. The lady in charge of those scales doesn’t deny the weight as it adds up.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Buggers, yes, lol!

          • Mary Stonehouse

            And their crime sprees just continue, I.e. Gia’s video and the mysterious money dropping from who-knows-where!

          • Mary Stonehouse

            I think BOTH you and Flanagan should write. I was thinking that both of you are already famous writers, who are scouring the internet for character studies! Ok, I have a vivid imagination (lol)!

          • twifan2

            Really think those 2 might have a chance getting into Heaven? :/

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Slim to none! Way back, I think they could have taken a different path, but tipped the scales from Purgatory to hell from their many selfish choices. Now, their daughters are being used to deflect from their inevitable jailhouse path.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            By the way, I like your little pictures you include with your posts!

    • v blackwell

      “what will u ppl write about then,”
      We’ll be online taking bets as to how long Bravo will last with only the foolish few tre fans watching the channel anymore. Btw, for a human interest story to have Any appeal, it requires the subject of the story to have Some appeal. Tre has none, nada, zilch, zero. She couldn’t even appeal her case. Tre’s not pardoned, but you’re excused, Jill.

      • BOOM!!!!

    • Addie2U

      You’d think they would have wanted to “redeem” themselves prior to becoming parents — but unfortunately it appears that’s exactly when these 2 shysters put their wheeling & dealing, lying & scheming into high gear → 13yrs ago when their eldest was born. How can you have any respect for parents that could care less about the future of their 4 beautiful daaw-ters? Teresa herself is constantly saying “we live for today, we don’t worry about tomorrow”!

    • MorningYawn

      People like redemption, for sure. But they only get behind redemption when the person is contrite and sincere in admitting wrong doing and seeking forgiveness. Given the amount of time since sentencing, the amount of time since the plea, and the amount if time since the charges were filed, during which she has NOT taken the opportunity to seek forgiveness or be honest in ANY way (adding more and more lies to the pile), I highly doubt the public will believe one ounce if her spin post incarceration. But thanks for playing.

    • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

      Sorry Jill, but imho? A fool is someone who continues to support an admitted & convicted felon who continues to rip people off & has no remorse what-so-ever. Only a fool would give that swine another chance.

      Just like all you Tre-huggers swore that she wasn’t gonna get convicted & if she did? She was only gonna get house arrest! Hmm, guess those FOOLS were WRONG!

      We all will have to wait & see come Jan. 2016, won’t we?

      & btw, people who are truly contrite? Truly repentant? Don’t commit felonies for 10 long years! So contemplate that while your waiting for your Empress to be released from her new empire. Alderson Correctional or as they lovingly call it, Camp Cupcake!

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Funny that Tre and Joe kept saying whatever the outcome of the court case might be it was in “God’s hands” or “God’s will”. Maybe s/he’s next on their list for a law suit.

    • Flanagan

      And I’m sure God is saying “Don’t get ME in the middle of this”.

    • Pinky Pie

      Must have been God’s will to lie, cheat, and steal, as well. I don’t think God wants us to do bad things. At least not the way I interpret the 10 commandments. Maybe, I need to revisit those. Teresa and Joe may have a revision that none of us got.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        I think Tre and Juicy have probably broken at least 8 of those 10 commandments. Such good catholics they are.

        • Pinky Pie

          Yeah, I’m thinking maybe their parish has different rules than mine. I really need to move to where they are, so that God will lighten-up! 🙂 they got that cheat hurricane Sandy victims stuff. Cheat innocent people. What am I doing here with these rules, ruLES, RULES?

            Loads of my prayers and good thoughts are coming your way! Think only good thoughts. Remember, when this is through, you will be better! Maybe you could ask them for one of those “Bionic Woman” eyes that you can zero in telescopically try to have some “good suggestions” for your doctor. A good laugh always helps me. I recently had a tumor removed from my throat (scar from ear lobe to collar bone) I asked the doctor which way he was going to cut, horizontally or vertically, to remove the tumor. I ended up with a vertical scar. I told him I was glad, he asked, “Why?” I said because everyone knows vertical lines are slimming. Now, my neck looks long and lean! 🙂 actually, the scar is disappearing, so there goes my theory. Don’t let one moment of your life lose its JOY. You deserve to be happy. My thoughts will be with you.

            Thank you! Life should be fun. There are too many important things to think about without being bothered by the future. For example, why didn’t Starbucks get my order right coffe, black, no add ons. I honestly don’t know why I let Teresa Giudice evil lies bother me. She really is our governments problem. I just feel like she and her dumb husband will get away with this if we don’t speak up. I want Bravo, and any other network that entertains the idea of putting her on tv to understand, we will not shut up.

            Please forgive my silly humor. I use it when I feel helpless, and it really has saved me stressing over the things I have no control over. I’ve spent the past 4 years in and out of hospitals. With “congrats you beat cancer” each time. Humor is my only weapon. I feel like it isn’t fun to sit around and feel sorry for myself, what’s the point of that? For me it isn’t the answer. So, that is why I gave you my silly advice. I also think it helps to have a positive attitude. Of course, all my good wishes, prayers, and happy thoughts are with you. Please be well. Xx

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Your humor is extremely valuable to me. Keep on being yourself! I beat (I wish I could literally BEAT cancer) cancer myself. You are in my prayers, I say the rosary, as my beloved grandmother did. Now Grandma Margaret was a saint, but had a wonderful sense of humor. She didn’t Bragg about her religion, but just quietly lived it. Peace to you, Pinky Pie.

          • Pinky Pie

            And Peace to you. Your grandmother sounds like she was a fun one to have. I am sure you have some treasured memories. You were lucky!

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Pinky, I believe I found a jewel in you befriending me. Slalom (always have loved that word) to you! You have given me an early Christmas present!!

          • Pinky Pie

            No, it was you giving me the gift. You’re much to kind. I just really don’t want the surgery to weight you down. It is a bummer to be sick. But, it might only be a week and you will see perfectly. Imagine all the beauty you would miss. You have no choice, so get it done, but don’t let it take your joy. And, you come right back to us when you are feeling better. You will be missed, but not for long… You bring back your great insight and wit! Xx!

          • Addie2U

            Just jumping in for a sec… my beloved aunt passed several yrs ago & I was given free reign of her home & all her beautiful possessions, & told to take whatever I wanted. I choose her crystal rosary beads & they’re one of my most cherished possessions.

          • Mary Stonehouse

          The cross themselves backwards–that’s how good of Catholics they are!!! I cringe every time I see it.

          • Pinky Pie

            Ha, ha! Oh, bad! Things to learn before appearing on camera. And, she says she is a “woman of faith,” just exactly like Salma Hayek in “Fools Rush in.”

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            What an azz! Such good a Catholic Tre is, huh? Is that why she can’t even make the sign of the cross correctly? Cause she’s such a devout Catholic girl???

            Btw Teresa. The correct order? Is spectacles, testicles, wallet, watch!

          • Addie2U

            “Spectacles, testicles, wallet, watch”. Too funny. Born & raised Catholic & 1st time I’ve ever heard that (of course while sitting here by myself, I had to try it)! ☺
            ETA: Just went to check where it originated. Joke re a Priest & a Rabbi on a plane — very cute. Thanks for sharing☺

          • Pinky Pie

            I’ve actually seen people in church doing that! Lol! I always wonder if it is because the are trying to follow the priest facing them or if they are dyslexic, or yikes bad Catholics. Oh, that’s right focus on the mass Pinky Pie… Focus! 🙂

      • Addie2U

        If you find those commandments, can you please forward me a copy. I’m not afraid to admit I was wrong, but I sure would hate to find out I’ve been living my life all wrong the past 50+ years!

        • Pinky Pie

          Maybe, we should’ve gone into Teresa’s house to sift through her junk with her former attorney, the one she is suing. Maybe, we could get a copy of Teresa’s 10 commandments…then for us it will be party lie cheat steal rinse and repeat.

    • Mary Stonehouse

      LOL! Those two fakes, using God’s will to appear humble and innocent! They have no boundaries.

          Aaaahhhh, sorry to heard about your son, Jennymckitty. 🙁
          FEEL BETTER SOON Jenny’s son! 🙂
          Know how he feels tho. I Ny-Quil’d myself last & this morning. Chats threw me out into the cold, dark world, so I could earn a paycheck to keep supplied with food. :/

          • Jennymckitty

            He isn’t really that sick. My mom would have sent me to school with a cold…really just sniffles. But I knew if I sent him, he would have told his teacher he was sick & I would be driving there to pick him up.

          • Jennymckitty

            Chats says salmon doesn’t grow on trees.

  • Jennymckitty

    Do you think this case alerted the Feds to Joe’s illegal activities? Do you think they were watching after this…even before the bankruptcy was filed?

    • WestCoastFeed

      Hmm, interesting question. I hadn’t thought of that. The fact that he not only forged Mastropole’s name, but also the notary’s name might have brought more attention to this case.

      • twifan2

        I think that it added more fuel to the Feds’ interest.

      • Jennymckitty

        Especially forging the notary and admitting that he had her seal. That sounds like a Federal crime.

    • Pinky Pie

      I think it was Kim G. and Monica Chacon, Mastrople’s attorney. I think unwittingly, Jacqueline got drunk and spilled all of the tea at Kim G.’s. Kim G. Hated the Giudice’s and she told Monica what was going on. I think that is why they were kicked out of the Gorga Christmas party, and why Teresa got so mad dog angry on the deck when Jac was questioning her. (I’ve been wrong many times, but this seemed to fit together) probably being on national tv throwing huge amounts of cash didn’t help them either.

      • Ventgrandma

        The Giudices were investigated by the Feds long before RHONJ, so no someone ratting her out is a muted idea. It’s actually a funny idea, if you really look at it. “I don’t like you, so I”m going to tell on you to the government”.

        The thing is, the Feds get their info one way or the other and the fact that they had been under investigation for so long, being on the show, probably escalated the investigation.

        Am I the only one that thought that Jac just questioned her out of friendship? Could be just me.

        • WestCoastFeed

          No. you are not alone. I think Jac really cared for Teresa and that she was well-intentioned.

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

          Joe didn’t file tax returns. They messed around with the banks. They messed around with the Bankruptcy Courts. No one had to ‘turn’ them in. They raised enough red flags on their own account.

        • MorningYawn

          I think Jac was PISSED because the Feds came knocking on her door, questioning her about their knowledge of T’s wrongdoings – and the Feds probably did that to all of the cast *(which would further explain Caroline’s horrible attitude that year). I think she wanted either answers from T or some bit of acceptance or something – throw me a freaking crumb! I promise you, hell hath no fury like someone involving the Yawn family in a federal prosecution… lol!

          • Pinky Pie

            Bet your right.

        • Pinky Pie

          Oh, thanks for the info! I didn’t think Jac was being malicious, but let’s face it RHNJ was showing her drinking, a lot. So, I thought without realizing it she was giving out info she wouldn’t normally repeat. So, are the Giudice’s the dumbest people on Earth to be under investigation and doing all that crazy stuff on tv, thus giving the Feds. Video proof of their behavior. Wow! Thanks for straightening me out!

  • Flanagan

    Skipping down memory lane for a moment, my personal favorite tale of Joe G.’s total idiocy was when he crashed the car into the tree, and claimed he took a swig out of the handy bottle of booze he keeps in the car while he was waiting for the police to arrive. He claimed he wasn’t actually DRIVING drunk, he just started drinking AFTER he crashed the car.
    I still sit in mute amazement at that one.

    • Pinky Pie

      Flanagan, we all need a stiff shot from our emergency hooch after we fall asleep and hit a pole or tree. It’s only logical. Preparedness they taught us that in the Girl Scouts, where were you that day? 🙂

      • Flanagan

        Well, Pinky Pie, I was in the Blue Birds, then Camp Fire girls, but I DID miss a few camp outs, so that little tidbit of handy knowledge was no doubt imparted during one of my truancies. Dang it!

        • Pinky Pie

          Hi Flanagan! Please know that I’m teasing you. I was in Blue Birds, too! Never good enough for the Campfires! 🙂 🙂 🙂 (actually had to go to piano lessons the day they met, so too bad for me!) but, note to all former Blue Birds carry a bottle of hooch in the car. If you get in a crash for a DUI, blame it on nerves! Cheers! (Seriously, Joe couldn’t come up with a better story. He had been caught drinking and driving before. He should have just admitted it. More excuses!)

          • Addie2U

            Curious. Did you keep up with the piano / Do you still play? (We had a baby grand growing up & though I took lessons for many years I forget every note I ever learned, but my sister 10yrs older plays everything from new to Mozart). ♪♫♪

          • Pinky Pie

            I play a little, not much. We didn’t have a Grand, but it would have been cool. Every time we had recitals, we got to play on one. I took lessons for 9 years. My younger sister plays like an angel, and does have a grand. Don’t mistake that for my baby sister acts like an angel:) 🙂 she’s a character!

          • Addie2U

            You’re lucky you can still play (even though a just a little). I bought myself a keyboard about 15yrs ago thinking my 6yrs of lessons would come back but not only couldn’t I read 1 note, I struggled with my scales! I boxed it up & put it in the basement & it’s on my (very long) “To-Do list. Must be something about piano playing sisters — mine’s also FAR from an angel! ☺

          • Pinky Pie

            I totally understand! My parents wanted a concert pianist. Totally not me. I’m not into constant classical music.

          • Flanagan

            Oh Pinky Pie, but of course I know you’re teasing! It’s wonderful to know you were a fellow Blue Bird. Brownies and Girl Scouts were on the top of the popularity list, but I was besotted with the uniform. SO colorful compared to the Brownies. Plus, I HAD to have that cap. I did graduate to Camp Fire Girls, but after the first year, sadly, the CFG mother left town, and we couldn’t find a replacement. (Was it something WE did?)
            Ah yes, we ALL should be counseled on the wisdom of carrying a tankard of moonshine in the car, just for occasions such as J.G. was in. How foolish and irresponsible of me that, thus far in my years of driving, I have neglected to make this a part of my emergency kit. Who cares about jumper cables, flares, flashlights, a spare tire and all the tools to go along with it…..as long as you have booze, NOTHING can stop you! Except maybe the highway patrol.

          • Pinky Pie

            You make me smile, so big, and laugh so hard! Thank you! I loved the little bluebirds on the cap, skirt, and suspenders! I couldn’t live without them! How dramatic! 🙂 🙂 I guess I haven’t changed. My 1st grade teacher wrote a comment on my report card, that I believed that there were rules at school, and that everyone should have to follow them. (Like that was a bad thing? 🙂 ) but, I guess I haven’t changed my thoughts on that. Laws are rules, and I seem to be upset about the whole Giudice thing and anyone who defends them.

          • Flanagan

            It makes me CRAZY to hear anyone defending and supporting those two. Especially when they talk about what a “good” mother Teresa is. Dear God, if these people think Teresa is a GOOD mother, I shudder to think what they consider a BAD mother to be. AAAGGHHHHHH!!!!

          • Pinky Pie

            Or, how they treat their children, and what acceptable behavior is to them! Wow, we agree totally!

          • Flanagan

            And just wait till Milania is about 14 years old. What they thought was “cute” at 6 years old, will be their worst nightmare when she’s a teenager. And Teresa will blame it all on Joe.

          • Addie2U

            LOVE your story. Just as Pinky Pie below, you “make me smile, so big, and laugh so hard”. You have a gift of brightening a day (or night) ♥

          • Flanagan

            Oh Addie2U, now YOU have made me ME smile so big! Thank you for such sweet words! *heart* (I still haven’t figured out how to get the pretty pictures on here. Tigerlilly pointed me to a wonderful new world of smilies and squiggles, but as soon as I see “cut and paste” I have a brain snap, and everything goes blank. I still haven’t mastered the finer points of computer mechanics. I compare it to driving with a stick shift vs an automatic. When I get in the car, all I want to do is put it in drive and forget it. The constant changing-should I go to 2nd? No, 1st, No no, 4th is the way to go! The split second decisions! It’s all too much!! Not to mention-the dang clutch. I’m breaking out in flop sweats just thinking about it).

          They CHOSE this!!!

          What do you not understand about that?

          They put greed & the love of fame, money, name brand this & that & designer labels ahead of their children. & then after publicly & explicitly stating that their children would not be shown because of their young ages & the delicate circumstances.They showed Gia breaking down. They use them as pawns!

            Ha-ha! Hi MY. Haven’t heard of “green Monday” before. But my Monday, this Monday? Is No Sympathy Monday! LOL!

            I just am flabbergasted that people still defend & support her. She has never shown a true ounce of remorse. It truly perplexes me in every way.

          • MorningYawn

            I was on Amazon this morning and there was a big “Green Monday” banner across the top… I was like WTF, the Eagles played yesterday (and lost miserably)!

            It is terribly sad that people still defend her like this. I would be embarrassed if I was a supporter. I like Kyle on BH but when she does shit!y things, I can give credit where its due and either say that or keep my yap shut.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            I agree. When somebody acts a fool. You can still like the person but dislike the behavior.
            But when somebody commits multiple felonious acts. Admits to them in a court of law. & gets sentenced. & then continues to live & flaunt that ill-gotten lavish lifestyle, all the while making little to no effort to pay any one of their creditors back? While using their 4 young children as pawns to garner sympathy?
            Well, that is defending the indefensible to me.
            & that?
            That really chaps my azz! LOL!

          She thrives on publicity! Tre should stay out/off the media pages.
          Dana, you should stay off the blogs too, if you are so concerned about her. You are just promoting MORE comments about her.

          • Dana

            Because she’s in the spotlight, haters assume they have the right to her private life. At some point every famous person deserves a little privacy. Right now is a rough time for her and her family. All I’m asking is you all give her a break.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            She is NOT famous–she is infamous!!!!! She has done NOTHING to be fame worthy–just ask her victims!!

          • twifan2

            Private life?
            Her filing lawsuits, Federal prosecution, etc… IS ALL PUBLIC info! She should have thought of the consequences her actions would lead her to. IF she is so ‘private’ then she should NOT sign another contract with Bravo!

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            It’s REALITY TV! What do you not understand about that? They signed up for it! You don’t get to cherry pick the moments you want viewers to see. You don’t get any say during the filming as to what gets aired & what doesn’t. No one threatened her or her children & made her sign another contract with Bravo. Year after year. She could have opted out anytime. So try again! Pffffffftttttt!

            We aren’t infringing on her privacy here. She would have to make an effort to find us.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Who cares what She wants???? She never cared about anyone but herself!!

          • MorningYawn

            Can you please post one link to a video or an article where she is quoted as admitting her guilt. If you count the plea… let’s remember that as soon as she got jail time, she said she didn’t know what she was signing, thereby taking back any admission of guilt she ever made. And then she sued her old attorney… and then… and then… all to let the people know that she is not guilty.

          • twifan2

            TY MorningYawn! I want to see that footage/article too!

          • Dana

            She apologized to her fans at the reunion and she admitted to the judge her wrongdoing. She’s remorseful. She will go to jail, serve her time and come out a better person and bigger star. Don’t let it kill you.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            No apologies to her victims though—-she has no remorse–just mad she has to go to PRISON!!!!!!

          • twifan2

            She mad cause she got caught!

          • MorningYawn

            Oh, honey, it’s not killing me. It is a source of never ending amusement to watch her try to dig, dig, dig her way out of this. Apologizing to her fans is in no way apologizing to the 54 individuals she lied, cheated and scammed. Admitting guilt by signing a plea agreement and then, within 24 – 48 hours of sentencing she says she didn’t know what she signed… that in no way shows remorse.

          • twifan2

            AND yet you continue to raise the comments about Tre.
            SHAME on you for bring attention to such a private person!
            Fur shames!

          • Addie2U

            She’s “admitted” to NOTHING:

            Verbatim 1/1 interview (copied & pasted from previous post)
            Andy: “You said before on the show you didn’t understand why this was happening to you, now you understand?”

            Tre: “When I say it like that I mean, like uh, I was sayin’ it like, uh . . . I mean I understand now, like fully, you know in black & white. I understand it but eh, er, but when I was sayin’ meaning like I never really, I meant like how could, ya know like, eh, er I mean I never hurt anyone. I never tried to hurt anyone; I was never malicious to anyone . . . like behind their back. That’s what I meant when I was sayin’ that. But I understand . . . & why it’s happening cause in black & white because eh, ya know what I was signing & like . . . so sometimes Andy, uhm, I don’t know how . . . I’m misunderstood by the way I say things.

            (It took our lil’ Tre nearly 4 ½ minutes to squeak that out!)

          • WestCoastFeed

            Then why does she continue to post pictures on her instagram?

          • Addie2U

          • Dana

            Do you want her to crawl up in a corner and die. She has young kids and a husband.

          • MorningYawn

            You can parent without being on social media.

          • Dana

            Whose not on social media. Everyone I know has Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

          • twifan2

            Some of us here don’t. We have real lives. 🙂

          • v blackwell

            Yet another indication that she’s a school kid, twi. They’re all on Facebook, Twitter AND Instagram.

          • twifan2

            Or someone with too much time on their hands.
            But I am leaning more to ‘school kid’. She used the word ‘chores’. :/

          • MorningYawn

            I know plenty of people who are not on SM, my SIL, my BIL, my parents, loads of friends… as fun as social media can be, I know plenty o folks who are excellent parents despite their willful social media void.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            What does that have to do with instagrams???? Dana, you are backing a losing horse in this race!!

          • WestCoastFeed

            So, what you mean is, she wants praise ONLY now. That’s different from privacy. And if we were all gathered here to sing her praises, you’d sing along with us.

          • MorningYawn

            So eloquent! Nicely done WCF

          • Dana

            You call it praise, I call it support. You can phrase it however you like.

          • WestCoastFeed

            So. you are asking for support only for Teresa. Is that right? No ridicule or public derision? Maybe she should sue us, too. Not just her bankruptcy attorney.

          • Dana

            I have no idea what your comment means.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Read her latest lawsuit, Dana. She is suing her bankruptcy attorney for malpractice which led to, among other things, “pubic ridicule and derision.”

          • twifan2

            Read the comment slowly, Dana.
            Those are relevent questions.

          • twifan2

            She wants money, that’s how I’d phrase it. 🙂

          • Addie2U

            And this happy couple is in the process of planning their marriage ceremony. I’m sure they could also use your support (or maybe you could just send them a little something from their wedding registry or at least a congratulations card)!

          • twifan2

            ¿¿¿¿HnH

          • v blackwell

            Hmmm. No, but she could go SIT in a corner, very quietly. She could stay out of the public eye for a moment and she could soon be forgotten. Wait a minute, Jan 5th! Time out (or is that time in?). There IS a God.

          • MorningYawn

            See that rock on her finger… costume jewelry, without a doubt. #YEAHOK

        • Ventgrandma

          It doesn’t matter if it’s Christmas time or the 2nd coming of Christ, Teresa brought all this stuff on herself. She exposed herself, husband, family, and kids on tv with her lavishly lifestyle and is now because of that 15 mins of fame, publicly declared a convicted felon. A crime is a crime is a crime. Doesn’t matter if it’s identity theft, stealing, or murder. She made her bed and now she must lie in it.

          Sorry no sympathy from me. IMO she need to be locked up December 2 since that’s 2 months after her sentencing. Didn’t Apollo get locked up 2 months after his? Teresa aint special.

          • MorningYawn

            So agree, grandma! Crime has no season! Wonder if she stopped defrauding people during the holidays, or turned on heat in her slumlord apartment building during the holidays, or stopped her consultations at the fertility clinic during the holidays when she knew she was never going to pay them.

          • Pinky Pie

            You know what is funny about the fertility clinic? Good Catholics are not suppose to use fertility drugs or birth control, that came from the Popes office. (While, personally, I’m okay with both, Teresa is professing to be a “Woman of faith.” So, if her child is a gift from God, why didn’t she pay for the services she received at the clinic, as a thank you gesture to our Lord? Woman of faith? Highly doubtful!

          • MorningYawn

            Excellent point Pinky. I have so much to say on this point, as a Catholic, but I think I will stop myself before I get into trouble. I do, however, agree with you.

          • Addie2U

            Teresa will profess to being a “woman of anything”, as long as it benefits whatever scam she’s trying to promote at the moment.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            B-O-O-M!
            Preach Grandma! Preach.

          • Dana

            Let’s not bring Apollo into this, he’s a 2 time felon. This is Teresa’s first offense. Not to mention she’s a mom. I’m happy the judge gave her the holidays to have with her family. It’s the least the judge could do after making that bogus judgement.

          • twifan2

            She did good by being a FEDERAL felon her first time. 🙂

          • Pinky Pie

            Bogus judgement? No, don’t compare Teresa to Apollo, Teresa had more counts for a longer amount of time. Teresa deserved 40 or 50 years. Teresa and Joe handed over names and got a reduced sentence. The Feds. Don’t back off that easily without benefit to our government. You, Dana, are standing on the wrong side of the law.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Ten years of robbing banks and mortgage companies. 2 years of lies in her bankruptcy filings. Which she admitted guilt to. Non payment of income tax. And you thought the sentence was bogus?

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Guess Dana doesn’t believe in facts West. Wow!

          • Addie2U

            She also doesn’t believe in laws!

          • v blackwell

            Well,I finally agree for real.That silly judge was so judgmental. Go figure, Dana. It’s a damn shame that her judgement was so bogus. The sentence definitely didn’t fit the crime. It should have been years.

          • Addie2U

            Not only has Teresa been committing crimes longer than Apollo but Teresa’s CRIMES added up to over $10 million, while Apollo’s totaled around $3 million. And let’s not forget, Apollo is also a parent. Judge Salas was extremely generous, not only by staggering her & Joe’s sentences but by also allowing her to go home for 3 months (to be with her family / put things in order). And I can guarantee 99.9% of those reading this will agree — Judge Salas did NOT mean go home & pimp out your eldest, sue your attorney, then tell anyone that’ll listen “I didn’t know what a plea deal meant”!!

            Teresa’s been using that excuse her entire life “I don’t know what that means” / so it doesn’t count! For a grown a$$ woman, a mother of 4 children, it’s her own damn fault she had to learn the hard way.

          • Ventgrandma

            Um yes I will bring Apollo into this because 1) I’m a grown azz woman and I can and 2) because he’s the only other fool on the housewives series that is also a convicted felon just like your precious Teresa.

            Mothers get locked up everyday, so what’s your point that she has the holidays and the judge made a bogus judgment. Lets see how you would have felt if she did that crap to you.

            She did the crime and now she must pay. Sorry that’s life and the law of the land.

        • v blackwell

          Are you trying to sabotage Teresa’s efforts now, Dana? She’s doing everything she can to keep people’s attention and you’re trying to rob her of that. Be careful or you may tempt her to commit murder.

    • Mary Stonehouse

      Dana, why not go to one of OK magazines sites that support Tre and Joe? They quickly delete any negative posts. Tre and Joe have sold many of their stories to that magazine.
      I really feel empathy for the people and firms that this duel stole from. They are FELONS!

      • Dana

        I really feel sorry for her kids. Have a little compassion for her kids.

        • WestCoastFeed

          I know you hurt for her Dana, but it is not going to go away if we stop talking about it. It is her reality. It is the life she chose. It is now her responsibility to protect her girls, not ours.

          • Dana

            Bloggers, posters, all play a role in minimizing the family’s pain. It’s bad enough the kids are mocked in school because of their parents actions. I wish people would think about that before they make mean comments about the family. They didn’t commit murder. Charles Manson receives better press.

          • twifan2

            Dana, what is in it for you with ‘cursade’?
            Are you on her payroll? Better get cash upfront!

            ” It’s bad enough the kids are mocked in school because of their parents actions’ <—WHICH their parents-TRE mostly-still does some insane actions.

          • Dana

            Why does “something” have to be in it for me. The haters need to understand Teresa has loyal fans that love her no matter what. We’re not fair-weather fans that abandon her when the chips are down. I know that fact upsets you.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Thanks for spicing up the board!!!! You do wonders to get folks to share!!

          • twifan2

            I think Tre does. IN Felonellini.
            How else can you explain the logic she uses!? 😉

          • MorningYawn

            Ohhh, commenting while felonellini’d… makes perfect sense now.

          • twifan2

            Anyone find it interesting that Dana comes on here in the afternoon-like after school lets out?! :/

          • MorningYawn

            You are so observant, girl! I hope she is not school aged. That would break my heart that she invested in this felon as a role model.

          • twifan2

            Her sytax, vocab is kind of high school-ish-imo.

          • MorningYawn

            I did not notice but I will pay closer attention now.

          • Dana

            That’s really none of anyone business if I’m in school or not.

          • twifan2

            Either way…stay in school.
            Get an education! Make yourself better than Tre. 🙂

          • MorningYawn

            You are correct, Dana, it’s not. I am going to bow out of the conversation with you now, though I will feel free to chat with the others.

            What ‘upsets’ me is that you all seem to idolize someone who looks at you all as $$$! She wants/NEEDS for you all to buy her crap-material & verbal.

            BUT your life, your $$$! Just send it all to her. 🙂

          • Dana

            The only person I idolize is Christ, please do not disrespect me. I bought one of her cookbooks, that’s all.

          • twifan2

            JUST one?!
            Was that the one at which booksigning you were at?

            See that’s where you cloud the issue, Dana. You speak more reverently of Tre than Christ.

          • Pinky Pie

            Fool! Skinny Italian’s stolen recipes by Teresa “the convicted felon” Giudice. Dana, wise up, never, ever, admit to anyone you were foolish enough to by a Giudice product.

          • Dana

            If you really believe those recipes belong to Kathy’s mother you’re the foolish one. Kathy would have sued already and she hasn’t because they are not her recipes.

          • twifan2

            Kathy may not be as shallow as Tre, Dana.

          • Dana

            I doubt Kathy would sit back and allow Teresa to steal her mom’s recipes and not speak out. I just don’t believe that.

          • twifan2

            Why not? That’s what a good person would do.
            Kathy isn’t money hungry like your Tre.

          • Addie2U

            And just who was it that said ‘no one cares about desserts’ then put out her own desserts?? BTW: EVERYONE loved Kathy’s cookbook except many were disappointed that she didn’t include her Cannoli recipe! (I’m sure you can guess who was reading all the comments!!)

          • Addie2U

            Dana, commonsense tells us that Tre & Kathy’s parents are siblings — so naturally they used & shared the same recipes.

          • v blackwell

            If anyone really believed those recipes were “exclusive’ to any one Italian momma, that would be the foolish one. Out of curiosity, Dana, could you post just one of the recipes from her book? I have several dinners coming up in the next few weeks and may be able to try one. Thanks in advance.

            ♦ Beef Chow Mein-aroni
            ♦ Mac & Cheese Sandwich
            ♦ Toasted Ravioli Pockets
            ♦ And the Cheeseburger-roni seasoned with tomatoes, ketchup, mustard & a dill pickle (I thought that was marshmallows on top but it’s a “sesame seed bun, torn into small pieces”!!)☺

            And for those romantic dinners or special occasions, be sure to try “Braided Spaghetti Loaf”!! Now that’s some fine dining! Just
            imagine a beautiful romantic, candlelit setting; with Teresa (using
            her best provocative, come-hither look) serving Juicy → Bread stuffed with Spaghetti-O’s & a bottle of fine aged (2014) Felonini?! Not only does that invoke weakness in the knees, but flaccidity & permanent impotency. No wonder they had to screw over – I mean “use” a fertility clinic.

            And it is hoped you enjoy every one of those original Italian recipes, Dana. In fact, you should throw a big dinner party after making them. Well, it can’t be that big if you’re only going to include her real fans. Did you bother to get it at a book signing event?

          • Addie2U

            I do believe that why she’s defending her so wholeheartedly — because she met her at a book signing. (At least I would hope that’s the case. Can’t imagine being such a staunch defender just by purchasing a book?! There’s lots of nuts out there that write books!)

            Adddie, I think you’re right. I remember her saying Tre & Joe ere “sweet” to her.
            “There’s lots of nuts out there that write books!)”

            Teresa proved that!
            I’m honestly concerned that Dana IS a kid.If she is, I feel like crap for being snarky with her. I also wish her parents would be aware that she on these sites, going to Tre’s book signing, buying her products and worst of all, defending her. Dammit!

          • twifan2

            Don’t feel too badly, v blackwell. On other sites she’s had it dished out to her & she back back just as harsh.
            She’s lucky some of us on here hold back! This site isn’t like those others! ;D

          • Addie2U

            As twi wrote below, “don’t feel badly” (I purposefully omitted the “too” because I personally haven’t seen anyone rip her too badly. And again, she’s not new & is fully aware what’s coming (unless of course there’s more serious issues)! Reading your comments, it’s clear you have a big ♥.

          • Addie2U

            Dana, if Teresa valued her fans she’d be honest with them & tell the truth (instead of continuing to deny, deny, deny).

          • Dana

            She confessed to the judge and apologized to her fans. She did more than I would have done. She’s done enough.

          • twifan2

            Has she apologized to her victims?
            Has she started to repay any of her creditors?
            Has she TRULY confessed her ‘sins’?

            NO to all of the above! 🙂
            Thank you for playing with us!

            You people exhaust me. It’s my dinner time.

            I know my kids always wanted their dinner on time every night too!!

          • WestCoastFeed

            When she has paid back ALL of her debts and apologized to ALL of those people and companies she stole from, that will be enough for me.

          • Dana

            She’ll do that and bounce right back. She’s not out the game.

          • WestCoastFeed

            $13.5 million paid back? Not in this lifetime.

          • v blackwell

            OOPS! Tre may draw the line at being referred to a big, round, bouncing inflatable air head -um – I mean BALL, Dana, even from an impostor who is posing as being a fan. You’re slipping, Dana, or sipping….a little too much wine right now.

          • Addie2U

            Please include a link or at least point us in the directions of WHERE she confessed to the judge & apologized to her fans.

          • Dana

            She apologized at the reunion (everyone saw this) and she read a letter in court acknowledging her guilt. Do your own research.

          • Addie2U

            I posted this late last night/early am & I’m posting it again specifically for your benefit (yeah, I’m nice like that). This is the verbatim portion of her 1/1 interview with Andy where she gives her NON-apology & “acknowledges” her NON-guilt. BTW, many of us here are still waiting for your “research” showing where she apologized.
            Andy: “You said before on the show you didn’t understand why this was happening to you, now you understand?”

            Tre: “When I say it like that I mean, like uh, I was sayin’ it like, uh . . . I mean I understand now, like fully, you know in black & white. I understand it but eh, er, but when I was sayin’ meaning like I never really, I meant like how could, ya know like, eh, er I mean I never hurt anyone. I never tried to hurt anyone; I was never malicious to anyone . . . like behind their back. That’s what I meant when I was sayin’ that. But I understand . . . & why it’s happening cause in black & white because eh, ya know what I was signing & like . . . so sometimes Andy, uhm, I don’t know how . . . I’m misunderstood by the way I say things.

            (It took our lil’ Tre nearly 4 ½ minutes to squeak that out!)

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            SHE
            DID MORE THAN I WOULD HAVE DONE???
            This says it all. Imho. You have no moral compass. & that is truly sad, Almost as pitiful as your Empress. Heaven help you Dana. If that is who you are at heart, then I worry about your future.

            Jeez, you simply never tire of being o-ooooh so-oooo right,do you,Dana? Tre’s done More than enough. Tre, in fact, has done way-yyy too much, don’t ya know, Dana? And YOU, you’re way too cleaver, dear.

          • Addie2U

          • Addie2U

            Amazing how a con artist & convicted felon can sell you a cookbook & you then become her biggest fan & defender! I hear you can buy Jodi Arias artwork & Charles Manson among many others are looking for pen-pals (just trying to broaden your friend network)!

          • Pinky Pie

            Don’t you think even if Teresa did admit it, it is too little too late? I think Teresa’s table flipping days are over. Teresa is way too old to be a starlet, or star. I can almost see the want ad post: Table flipping a must, must have poor grammar, dreadful make-up(meaning pile it on two inches), must have hallow marble mausoleum house, four poorly behaved children, and a fat husband to call her nasty names on tv, must fight with everybody and anybody breathing.

          • Addie2U

            Society has proven time & time again to be extremely forgiving. Only problem is you have to 1st ADMIT to your wrongdoings. Teresa will continue to play stupid & act like she did nothing wrong. She thinks her ignorance gives her a pass. “I don’t understand, so it doesn’t exist”.

          • v blackwell

            Addie, I think Dana is a player.

          • Addie2U

            I do believe she’s a card player (& not playing with a full deck)☺

          • v blackwell

            Chuckles. Someone suggested she may be a school kid. I so hope not. She may actually be sincerely naive. The insults to her have been rough.

          • Addie2U

            From what I understand this isn’t her 1st time on the boards (here & elsewhere) defending Tre so I’m sure she knows what to expect. Reading some of her comments & references, I don’t believe she’s that young. Think about it — if Tre herself came on the boards (incognito, of course), many would also think she’s “just a young school kid”.☺

          • twifan2

            It’s not her first time on these boards or other sites.
            Her vocabulary, syntex is ‘simple’-it gets to the point of being robotic. ‘Tre is innocent’, ‘Tre is a good person’, Tre will be bigger when she comes out of jail’… Dana never says ‘prison’, it’s jail.
            She may be in high school, 2nd time. She may be a young Mickey D worker…idk. But IMO, there really isn’t any substance to her thoughts. :/

          • Addie2U

            “May be in high school, 2nd time”☺
            At least she’s a go-getter!

            When once is not enough. 🙂

          • v blackwell

            OH, don’t worry, Dana, NO-ONE is UPSET about Tre’s “fans”. On the contrary, don’t you hear the roar of floor slapping and rolling laughter. And as far as “when the chips are down”, Tre surly has chips up her sleeves, stuffed in her shoes and stashed in the hidden cookie jars. She’s laughing too. In fact, I think YOU’RE laughing harder because you think people are buying your “fan” story….you silly little troll you.

          • Addie2U

            Only a fool would expect nothing but glowing, positive comments after placing themselves (& their family) in the public eye. And only a bigger fool would do so knowing they’ve been lying, cheating, & scamming not only the Federal Government, but the public for 10+ years!

          • Addie2U

            Dana, please read the headline & then tell us “who” destroyed this family? (And then “who” keeps perpetuating their pain by selling these stories??)

          • Dana

            I’m not saying the public destroyed Teresa. Stop putting words in my mouth. All I’m asking is, give this family a break, it’s the holidays. GEEZ!

          • Pinky Pie

            Dana, really, I think you got the response you were looking for. No one on this website wants to give Teresa or her family a break. Teresa flaunted stolen goods and made fun of too many innocent people who were struggling to make us ever want to give her a break. Currently, Teresa is pimping out her daughter. You think that is a good idea, your right to think that, our right is to say we don’t approve of Teresa or her crappy decision making skills. Her lack of thought for others, and her lies lead us to our decisions. You cannot change that. Teresa is one of the top felons in the country, that is her claim to fame. Soon, she will be in a cage where she belongs. Woof, woof! It will be just like the pound.

          • twifan2

            clink clink

          • Pinky Pie

            And, if they dare to put her back on tv, it will be “click, click! ” me changing the channel. I heard Teresa’s new plan, post prison is to move to L.A. Area. I hope that was bogus. Don’t criminals have to stay in the area they were living during parole? And, that kind of move would be $$$$ where would the newly poverty stricken Teresa get that kind of money.

          • MorningYawn

            I’m pretty sure her plea includes some kind of parole. I believe she’d have to stay in NJ for that.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Her sentence includes 2 years of probation.

          • Pinky Pie

            Everyone on the West coast sighs in relief! I heard she thinks she can get on TV. Really? I think I can hear the boycott of that station and it’s sponsors!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I understand that probation is a real drag!!!!!! Too Bad–NOT

          • Pinky Pie

            Worse than her used kennel cage at the old jailhouse? I hope they teach Teresa how to dance to Elvis’ “Jailhouse Rock” and then make her dance like a monkey for everyone!

          • Hey Naws!!! Yeah, it’s gonna be a drag for a drug addict who can’t use her drugs for 2 years.

          • Pinky Pie

            Wow! Now they’re not going to allow her to use drugs… You know what that means…the government is going to MAKE her go to the guy on the street corner. It’s AlWAYS someone else’s fault!

          • Then she’ll fail her drug test given by the probation officer and go back to prison.

          • Pinky Pie

            YES! Right where she really does belong. Think of it as: With her peeps! Teresa will fit right in! I wonder, do you think they have a sequined prison uniform waiting for her? You know something tight, her usual style. Only thinking of her comfort level.

          • v blackwell

            Consider them broke, Dana.You’re still right…..it’s the holidays. Relax, enjoy. I can almost promise you the Giudices will have extravagant ones too. At least try to enjoy yours as much as they will theirs.

          • Pinky Pie

            I don’t think we care about Teresa’s family pain. To me it is a excuse to try to control public thought. Oh, gee, I’m such a hater that I don’t want this family to get away with stolen money or goods…how unfair of me. Dana grow up. If you are grown up, go back to work, Teresa’s going to need you to not be such a slacker, buy more cookbooks. In fact, buy duplicate copies. Teresa needs your money! Gia wants Louie luggage for Christmas, and those horseback riding lessons aren’t free… So, back to work with you. Hurry those MacDonald’s burgers need to be flipped, if they burn you’ll won’t have a job, and Teresa needs the money. Hustle!

            OMG! ROTFLMAO!!!! 😀

          • v blackwell

            There ya go again, Dana, batting a thousand. You’re so RIGHT. Will it make you feel much better to know that most of the Tre “objectors” are secret fans on an undercover mission. She gets secret tweets of support from many daily. Sneaky but cleaver, huh? Feel better?

        • Addie2U

          You’re talking about her kids that she’s been pushing to be in the public eye before they could even talk??

          I wish Tre thought of her children as well! Tre having her daughter begging for money, not for a charity, but for a get-rich money scheme. I’m done with you.

            Someone should have told Teresa to keep her mouth closed a couple of years ago. Evidence of stupidity just keeps mounting.

          • Spoken like true soul-less sociopaths.

          • Dana

            I feel Teresa was mislead by Joe. He’s the real criminal.

          • Pinky Pie

            Dana, the burgers are burning, back to work. Teresa needs the money. Don’t be a slacker. Buy another cookbook.

          • twifan2

            In Trelandia world she is. 🙂

        • Oh Dana, Please give the kids excuse a rest. We don’t care!!

          • Pinky Pie

            Count me in on the we don’t care about that excuse any more. It is almost too late for those children to have any moral values.

        • v blackwell

          Why in the world are you addressing THAT to Mary Stonehouse, Dana. I can pretty much guarantee you she has a heart of gold for any child. I’m beginning to think you’re full of it and just “defend’ Teresa to troll. Actually, that’s much smarter than being a silly twit of a “fan” but please, lay off of Mary H. Thank you, Dana.

        • twifan2

          Do tell how her kids are part of this comment section? This is about Tre, Juicy-the parents, adults.
          You’re the one bringing in the kids to this-YOU should leave them out of this.

          Are you suggesting her kids are reading all our comments? Shame on Tre for letting them!

      • RealitytvJunkie

        I feel sorry for the victims also. They will likely never see a penny from Teresa and Joe. The sad part is they keep committing more fraud.

        • Pinky Pie

          And smiling while they do it. And, then saying “What?!”

          • Pinky Pie

            Every time you say that I go into laughter. That scene was surreal for me. I thought, did I take some drug and not realize it. Thank you for saying something, because I played that back several times.

          • Addie2U

            That scene had me roaring. I’ve tried to find the clip since the night it aired but haven’t had any luck. I’m surprised no one’s put it out there (yet)!

          • RealitytvJunkie

            It’s frustrating. I’m not a violent person but every time I see that smile on her face I want to slap it off.

            Dana is a responsible TreHugger, she had to go flip the burgers on the MacDonald’s grill. If they burn, she will not have her job, then how can she buy Teresa’s crap to support her in the manner in which she has become accustom?

But I don’t remember Al Manzo ever whining to the rest of the world and asking them to stop vilifying Bernie.

            Gia’s 3KT song is out and available from ITunes. I can’t hear so I wont even bother to look for it.

          • I saw that but refuse to even pay .99¢ for it.

          • Addie2U

            I just looked (but not on iTunes) & didn’t see any mention of it. The only info I found was — they didn’t reach their Kickstarter goal (yeah, we know!) & Gia has a message out → “Hater’s gonna hate” (& shyster’s gonna shyst, & lying, cheating, no good . . . )

          • You are freakin HILARIOUS!! I’m waiting for the video to come out…NOT!!

          • Addie2U

          • Addie2U

            When it 1st came out I really thought it was a drag queen. I thought there’s NO way a mag would put such an “attractive” photo of her (especially on the cover)! Then after a little research, I found out → it’s LEGIT! PLEASE heed my warning: Look no longer than 5 seconds or it’ll ruin your appetite (for days)!

          • HOLY SHIT!

          • v blackwell

            OMG, Addie! THAT’S Tre’s “sexy” pose??? When my vision cleared after the initial shock, I looked again (masochistic) and thought she was conveying a pain in the neck. You know, to kinda reflect what she is. If I were Juicy, I would run like hell from THAT “Come Hither” look!

          • Addie2U

            Why do you think they needed to use a fertility clinic? That look causes flaccidity & permanent impotency. Nothing for anyone here to worry about though. It’s typically caused by a combination of that look, her cooking, + a glass of Felonini.☺

          • v blackwell

            Crap, Addie, just found this! I’m conjuring up a visual of sheets going up in flames, hearing an explosion loud enough to render me with permanent ringing in my ears and a nose that lives in fear of ever inhaling again, due to the lingering stench expelled from the bowels of, well … hell. Now I can be a permanent mouth breather who has to ask everybody to repeat what was said, as I stumble around with seared eyes, fumbling for a fire extinguisher. That’s just for starters. Than there’s the issue of Joe with his limp, well … a limp Joe. For this, I should thank you???

            mRs, hi! You sound like you feel much better!!!! Do you? What did you do today? Have you been eating and did your “young” 40 year old friend get your hair done? It’s time like these that make us appreciate what a luxury a nice shampoo is, isn’t it?
            How are the eye drops going, Mary? Do they sting?
            Today, I was telling my mother that I had prayed 3 rosaries (probably more that I have in 3 yrs) and have committed to a few more. I think Mother considers You her Christmas present. I’m trying to follow you, but I swear something’s wrong. I never get notified as to where you are. I have same problem with Kyle Jones! I’m beginning to feel like a PI, searching for “missing persons”! ; )

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Yes, the eye drops still sting.. I don’t have any trouble following you, there must be something wrong with your system. However, I’ve spent more time just reading the different streams, so perhaps I didn’t leave a proper path.
            Say hello to your mom for me! Tell her that she’s got an intelligent, feisty, and fun daughter.

            The only thing I am complaining about is how tired I feel most of the time; I Am sleeping too much.
            My young friend is coming tomorrow to wash my disgusting hair, I have been taking sponge baths (doctors orders, no showers).

            I am sleepy again, so play nice, and don’t find anymore crazy people to spare with. Although, that’s probably how you release stress!

          • v blackwell

            The med may be making you sleepy, Mary, which may be a good thing. Sleeping will help you pass the time, you won’t be as aare of the “discomfort” and (I THINK) your body heals faster while your sleeping.
            Tomorrow, I’ll tell you something about my mother. Sleep well. Mary. SUGAR Plum dreams!

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Goodnight. Right before I was going to check your second message to me, it crossed my mind to ask about your mother. Then you surprised me about telling me something about her. I would love to hear about her. See you tomorrow.

          • v blackwell

            I swear to God (seriously) Spread, THAT was my 1st thought too!

          • Pinky Pie

            Oh, that’s right! Thanks!

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Addie2u, on one of your posts, I pushed the wrong prompt to down you, then your post disappeared and I couldn’t correct my error.

          • Addie2U

            No problem Mary. Glad to see you here getting your mind off things (tomorrow?). Over the years my 88yr old dad’s had multiple eye surgeries, then 4rs ago, a cornea transplant & he recovered like a champ. Reading some of your posts, the thing that’s bothered him also, is the drops. Again you’re in my thoughts & prayers. xo Addie

        • Mary Stonehouse

          Yes, they keep sneakedly stealing, it’s like a sickness with them. I have a feeling that our latest visitor is playing us; that’s why I’m done speaking to her.

          • v blackwell

            mRs ….whatever happened to the mild mannered Mary Stonehouse who is known and loved on these sites????????

          • Mary Stonehouse

            An onion has many layers, so do I. Why the question???

          • v blackwell

            I’ve never heard the onion analogy, mRs. It’s great. Why the question? Because I find it amusing when you do throw shade at someone. It’s a rarity for you Btw, I’m almost certain that Dana’s playing us. I don’t think she’s really a Trehugger as much as a troll. Further down though, someone suggested she’s a school kid. I hope not.
            While we’re here, Mary, I just read that your pending surgery is on your eye lens. It sounds serious. Will you be ambulatory when you get home? I can’t imagine how you’ve managed to read and post. I will definitely pray a rosary for you, Mary, as well as include you in nightly prayers.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            All prayers are most welcome! Four weeks recovery, but I have my good right side eye. You are awake when the doc goes into your eye, it is unpleasant, but there is no choice. I will have normal vision for reading, just need glasses to see far. I just want that day to be over. My brother will be with me. My bro, is also my friend.
            I will take care of myself when I get back home; there are a minimum of three eye drops given four times a day for four weeks.

            When I post, I must re-read everything at least twice. However, I’m motivated. My internet life has been a positive experience, especially on this board.

            I love the word, shade! Don’t like when teenagers and those in their 20’s overuse, ‘haters’!

            Thank you for the rosary, I have been using it to go back to sleep, when, my sleep is interrupted. Always reminds me of my grandmother and she loved me.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Cataract surgery? I had mine done a year and a half ago. The eye drops are a pain in the posterior. I swear I got worse at getting the drops into my eyes as time went instead of getting better with practice.

          • twifan2

            My gran used an eye drop helper thingy. She got it at WalGreens or Wally World.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Surprisingly, I’ve been handing the many different eye drops very well!

          • Mary Stonehouse

            I started the preoperative drops today, two bottles to put two drops for 4 times a day. Sometimes, I wish I was wealthy to have a private nurse for times like these but, hey, I will see again! I better toughen up and quit complaining!

          • WestCoastFeed

            My daughter has a friend whose mother refused to have her 2nd eye surgery just because the drops are so much trouble. I laughed, but I understood.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Having a baby isn’t pleasant, but you must do it. Although magically, the memory fads as you greet your new little one. As I said, I must. It really helps to voice my concerns and hear from other people such as yourself, thank you.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Of course you are on edge, that’s to be expected. We here at AAtT will be rooting for you. Check in again when you feel up to it and let us know how you are doing. In the meantime, you have a lot of great, good healing thoughts wending you way that will help ease the day.

          • v blackwell

            “Having a baby isn’t pleasant”

            My God, Mary, you’re also the Mistress of Understatement.
            Advise is easy to give, but try to focus on how much better you’ll be when it’s all over. You’re going to be able to see so much better. You’ll hopefully never have to go through it again. Reward yourself with something special for being brave. Talk about your concerns as much as you want. There’s plenty of people here to be sounding boards. Take advantage of it.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            I thought about the procedure a lot yesterday. I have a little trick I use when something nasty is coming: I give myself permission to feel scared and afraid for that time period, then, I can cope. I am brave today, because I want my sight back in my left eye! Thank you for your concern, I will be fine. Tomorrow, at this time, my brother will have me home. Friday, the doc is checking the surgery, and I continue the assorted drops for 4 weeks.

          • v blackwell

            Damn, I don’t know what to say, Mary. I don’t want to be ‘Pollyannish”. Pain sucks. Surgery sucks. Recuperating sucks. If you can, stay brave. I don’t know how much prayers alleviate pain but I did pray a rosary specifically for you last night and will tonight, in addition to asking God to bless you. I’ve become very cynical but I do know it’s been proven that prayers do help.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Well, guess what, my bro just called for a time to pick me up tomorrow, and I started crying and feeling afraid again; the emotion just sprung up out of me. My bro, like most men, doesn’t do well with that, so I got off the phone and feel like a sissy.

          • v blackwell

            Mary, cry if you want, It may relieve some tension, which is probably what you’re feeling more than fear. Anyway, you’re a lady. That gives you an inborn right to be a sissy or to change your mind or to have hormonal swings. Those are the main advantages, so take advantage of them. If there’s something I can say to make you feel better, tell me what it is and I’ll say it.I wish someone was there with you today.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            We both know the power of words. I took your Words and wrapped them around me, and felt the validity of my feelings. Thank you, friend.

          • v blackwell

            Awww, Mary, if wishes came true, I would be able to speak magic words to make you feel so much better. Tomorrow afternoon, you’re going to have the worst of it behind you. Then we’ll lament about the damn drops. One step at a time, okay? Take baby steps. What are you going to have for dinner?

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Baked potato with cheese, margarine, fresh parsley, and light sour cream…a small salad. I like to cook, but just wanted an easy clean-up.

          • v blackwell

            Make two, m on way. So, will you be cooking the next few days or having deliveries or what?

          • Mary Stonehouse

            I have canned soup, eggs, and peanut butter and honey…some apples. I’m keeping things simple. I may treat myself to one pizza delivery, I can make a couple of meals out of it.

          • v blackwell

            Wow, that doesn’t sound like there’s a bad meal among them. It certainly sounds like a healthful menu and there’s so much versatility with eggs. You’ve planned well, Mary. Good for you. Do you child/ren live close enough to make a visit, Mary?

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Alas, my children live in California, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. They all have children, both parents work, and are very busy. I brought them up to be independent, I miss them, and only see them once a year in the summer.

          • v blackwell

            Mary, ya know, this is a b-i-g country and families get so scattered, but we all grow up and have to live our lives. It’s hurts sometimes.. It’s got to be hard to see your children and grandchildren once a year, especially during those times when we wish we could be near when needed.

            Mary, do they inject your eye??? And how can you tolerate keeping your eye open? The thoughts of it makes me shudder. With your eye open, can you actually see what they’re doing or is it too close?

          • v blackwell

            Hi, Spread. Thanx for the invitation!

            Gia is 13 years old. Her mother is a master manipulator, I feel she controls her family, each and every member, in a covert way. Joe, I know is a horrible man, but I see the Buggers working together for notorious schemes past and present. Tre Bugger wants her daughter to succeed–in a soul destroying industry– for her path for more money.

    Off subject but nice: I saw Lifetime’s Christmas movie last Saturday, and it was charming and fun, “Wishin’ and Hopin'” taken from Wally Lamb’s book– Set in the ’60s, in a parochial grade school at Christmas time. Brought back many good memories for me! If you get a chance, please see it.

    Can not wait for this lawyer to respond!! Also, I thought her “bagel bun” looked like a spare tire hanging on the back of her head. Who the heck wears a bun that big!!haha

    I’m surprised that Mastopole has the restraint not to have the Guidices fit for Cement Shoes or at the very least Matching Walkers. To be ripped off and then have to sit back and watch them parading around NJ, still spending money, and blaming others for their demise. Their arrogance alone makes you sick. I know it pisses me off, I couldn’t imagine walking in his shoes.
