Teresa Giudice: RHONJ Co-Stars Will Help Raise Her Kids While She’s In Prison

Posted on Jan 2 2015 - 12:43pm by BeachSpin

Teresa & Joe Giudice RHONJ

Teresa Giudice is in her final days of mommy mode, and the upsetting question still remains…who exactly is going to take on raising the four young Giudice daughters? “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star is set to surrender to federal prison in just a couple of days, and according to Hollywood Life  she has finally admitted her need for help, and has communicated with some of her sister Housewives, asking for support. She has supposedly reached out to her cousin, Kathy Wakile, her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, and bestie Dina Manzo, for a helping hand. She allegedly does not want  to leave the enormous task of parenting the four girls in the hands of her husband Joe, an admitted, beaten down drunk. Their insider spills about Teresa’s anxieties and the moves she has made to lessen the stress.

“Teresa is terrified of going to prison. She has put Gia in charge of looking over the girls. She does not trust Joe at all, he can’t even do their hair!” our insider tells us. “Teresa cries all day, all night. She is sick over leaving them. Melissa, Kathy and Dina are all going to be taking shifts coming over and watching them, picking them up from school and taking them on weekends.”

Hollywood Life also reports that Joe has promised to bring the girls to visit, but with their busy schedules, Teresa knows that regular periods with the girls are a long shot. How can she expect Gia to break into the music business, be a mother, and trek to the clink once a week? I guess that being a normal student is just a pipe dream by now. Kudos to Teresa for finally getting real, facing some grim realities, and asking for help.I would bet that Joe Giudice agrees.

    I can see Kathie & Rosie taking care of all 4! 😀
    Melissa maybe for short periods of time.
    Zender-only Audrianna. For short periods of time.

    • cait

      Add Caro to the mix and those children would soon have manners ! Think this is a Bravo ploy !

      • twifan2

        Yep, think so too!
        I’d love to see Rosie with the girls…too funny! 🙂

        • Debbie Willard

          She would throw them in the lagoon…LOL

        • cait

          See, Rosie loves Joe and gets on well with the girls, esp. Demonia so she’s got a head start !

    • cait

      Zender-Bender looked uncomfortable with Awfulania in that pic ! The kid isn’t bald and has all her limbs, so not in the Zender comfort zone !

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Twi! I can see Kathy and Rosie’s mom pitching in too! 🙂

      • twifan2

        Hi Hi Mars! 🙂
        I’d like to see that!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Since Antonia and Milania are so close, I expect Melissa will be a big help with Milania. And that child really need help.

    • twifan2

      I hate that they might split the girls up. 🙁

      • Guardian

        I doubt they will but then again, there’s a lot of difference between seeing to a five year old and a teen – with Milania thrown in the mix. And the second oldest – name? damn this dementia – she is so quiet (or at least smart enough to shy away from the cameras).

        • cait

          No, Gabriella really worries me as she is so quiet, and largely ignored by her family ! I think she is probably the most damaged child of all and is keeping it to herself !

          • WestCoastFeed

            She’s the one that concerns me the most, too. I fear she is one of those “suffer in silence” kids who will be hurt for years.

          • Guardian

            I think she takes a lot in too. I’ve heard comments re how smart M is, but I think G has the brains. I think if KW is involved she will make sure to distribute support evenly – always so easy to overlook the quiet one.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I don’t think they intended that in the story. Joe will still be the main caretaker, just getting help from the relatives with driving kids to the extracurricular activities, and such.

        • twifan2

          ‘and taking them on weekends’.
          That’s a lot of work for one person. ;/

        • AtomicBetty1000

          Don’t mean to be mean, to kids whose mutter is going to jail, but why are there still extra curricular activities? I feel like this watergate all over again, “follow the money.” Where is the money coming from? Extra curricular activities x 4, and Gia’s latest is expensive.

  • WestCoastFeed

    No mention of the Giudice relatives in that article? What about them?

    • Guardian

      That’s what I was just about to write. Interesting – as always, wonder about the source.

    • twifan2

      i was thinking the girls are going to cast members ‘for the story lines’ on Bravo.
      that way they’ll keep the story going.
      MAYBE the Giudice relatives don’t want camera crews in their homes after seeing what they’ve done to Tre & Juicy? Just a thought.

      • Guardian

        That thought came to me too. Bravo could feast on that for the entire season. Something tells me his brother & comp. don’t want to invite what cameras bring – know what I mean?

        • twifan2

          Yep, sure do. 😉

          • Guardian

            . . . adjoining cells.

          • twifan2

            Bunk buddies! 🙂
            Oh & you know Zender needs a story line.

          • Guardian

            Yes – think the move to NYC and her new apartment would be good for only one episode.

          • twifan2

            If she does move to NYC, then how will she be able to care for Audrianna? Her school, sisters are in NJ.

          • Guardian

            Weekends I’m guessing? Better hide candy and cookies cause M thinks no means yes.

          • twifan2

            *Sits Chats on top of sprinkle cookies tin*
            THERE! Let M try & get a sprinkle cookie! 😀
            *evil laughter*

          • Guardian

            Best not mess with the “Wild Chats of Borneo.” Yum, yum, beat ’em up.

          • twifan2

            Chats takes NO prisoners! 😉

  • Norrth

    She’s finally understanding the reality of her situation. Before she was reported as saying she didn’t want her SIL raising her children. How did she ever think her husband would be able to do it on his own?

  • AtomicBetty1000

    This is typical of Teresa and her selfishness. If the jail birds are putting those children in front of a camera, with a national audience, to watch them cry for their mommy and make money, I won’t watch that. Their wonderful mother is doing that to them. And, if Bravo is using them for a story line’ I won’t watch Bravo.

  • twifan2

    In the pics posted yesterday, Tre doesn’t look like she’s crying too much! :/
    She & Juicy are all smiles.
    Does this mean Juicy will have more time away from home & spend it with his ‘associates’?

    • AtomicBetty1000

      I noticed smiles, as well.

      • twifan2

        I wish Cheaters would do an episode on Juicy! 😀

        • AtomicBetty1000

          I’d watch that one.

          • twifan2

            I’ll bring the popcorn & box wine! 🙂

  • Anne Green

    Why is this situation any different than if one day Teresa just dropped dead? Who would be responsible for the children then? Joe would be! He is the biological father of those 4 girls….just step up to plate!!! I don’t care if he’s a drunk or what he is, he is their father and Judge Salas afforded the felons the opportunity for the children to have one parent with them at all times. The Judge also gave them a generous 3 months to figure all this nonsense out.

    • cait

      How come Loving Mommy only started looking before Chrimbo ?

    • twifan2

      That’s what makes me think it’s a Bravo ploy.

    • AtomicBetty1000

      If Joe was allowed to step in and take over, it would drive Theresa insane. Not just anyone can fill her shoes, blah, blah, blah. It is so much work! (Yet, if Theresa is doing the work, why do we always see those kids misbehave) ego damage for Theresa to see Joe take over and do well.

      • cait

        I think he’ll do better than the Tree as he won’t be rushing them off to designer shops to shut them up ! He’ll tell it like it is ! When he’s tried in the past, the Tree has always closed him down !

    • Marsbars09

      Anne, Joe is no good to himself or the girls if he’s constantly drinking. If that’s the case Children’s Protective Services really needs to step in.

      • Anne Green

        You’re right, Mars. We don’t really know for sure what is going on behind the scenes but I sure hope someone with a level head is in tune to it.

  • No mention of Joe’s family……interesting!! VERY interesting!!

    • Anne Green

      I don’t believe any of this. First off and most importantly….if Joe is not the sole-caretaker of these children, I can see the Judge and Federal Government taking issue with him being free to come and go as he pleases. That wasn’t the agreed upon deal. Secondly…this smells of Bravo money to me.

      • twifan2

        TY Anne!
        Some of us posted that below.
        Bravo story lines, $$$, keeping relevant,…

      • cait

        She’s been running around loose for 3 months, not taking care of her pressing business, ie. the girls, but the Feds let this “innocent” Schmuck laugh in their faces !

        • Anne Green

          You’re right! What do we really know about what is happening with the girls? We really don’t. I just don’t see this going well.

      • AtomicBetty1000

        Honestly, I think the two parents are in this together, the crime, so they can’t divorce. Each one knows too much about the other, and where the money is currently. The location of stash they are not spending, yet. I bet they would like to serve their sentence at the same time. Get out, get deported, and move to where they can spend their stolen cash freely. Milan, Italy, has high fashion for Theresa. Using their children is part of their plan. We all heard Joe say, “this family has to do what we always do, and just keep making money.” Sleaze balls!

        • misstc

          I don’t think the Fraudices have LOTS of money stashed away; they don’t seem like smart investors but more like spend it faster than it comes in flashers.

          • Atomicbetty1000

            My problem with your theory is, then where is the money? Their house is worth 4 million. They have loans of over 5 million on it. The Giudice’s stiffed contractor’s and suppliers for improvements to the mansion. They didn’t pay that much for it. The shore house is being sold for a little less than they borrowed on it. The Lincoln park house is being sold for less than it is worth. Their children are not in private school (to my knowledge). Designer clothes, shoes, and bags are expensive, even at a “discount.” Plus, part of their debt included huge credit card debt to major department stores. How much of that crap does Theresa own, unknown. But, how could that amount to 14 million? Also, most of the cars they drove were leases, very few were owned. How much debt or money did they put into car loan? Where is the money? It is a real question. Also, we saw vacations, that were Bravo mandated, and probably paid for by Bravo, but Theresa couldn’t take a trip to the bathroom without announcing it to the world, so there couldn’t have been many expensive vacations that they paid for. So, again, where is the money? It’s just my curious mind wondering. You don’t have to agree with me.

          • misstc

            Au Contraire – I do agree with you and you make some valid points. But then I look at some small cash awards I’ve gotten in my past life and how quickly money flies out the window – (not me) going out to dinner, trips to spas, buying stupid crap that adds up. I agree also, that once they knew they were in trouble, they started stashing cash. Wasn’t it in some episode Joe handed her a wade of cash? Or am I thinking of the Sopranos?

          • Atomicbetty1000

            I think that might have been the first season, when Theresa was going furniture shopping. I don’t know why, but I just cannot wrap my mind around blowing 14 million dollars. I know it adds up, but other than her designer junk, the Giudice’s appear to have zero equity in anything. They don’t really own anything according to the court work. They have about $150,000. That’s it? I just don’t get it. How could they have blown that much money. I guess it is possible, but it sure does make them two of the dumbest crooks around.

    • cait

      They’ve dumped HER, but might be diff. when she’s gone ! Other thing is they’re prob flat broke !

    • Birdie11

      Maybe the Giudice side doesn’t want to be reminded of Tre on a regular basis?!

      • Guardian

        I really wonder if deep down they don’t blame her for all of this living beyond their means and what it has come to – with so much more to come I think.

        • BINGO!!!!

          • Guardian

            I mean, I don’t know how ill his father was, but I’m sure this stress didn’t help. Hard for family members not to think about this – IMO.

          • cait

            He was digging the famous “chicken coop” ! Where was Pudgy, while dad did all the hard work ?

          • Lucy94

            That’s as bad as Elvis dying on the toilet! Don’t know how I’m going to go, but it’s safe to say it won’t be building a chicken coop!

          • I agree, Guardian. Something tells me Joe’s family blames Teresa for Frank’s death.

      • Perhaps they HATE her. Lmao!!!!

        • Birdie

          HELLO!!

        • Marsbars09

          They probably do.

    • Marsbars09

      Doc is that you? I just posted a comment that Joe’s brother and sister have their hands full with their own families, so maybe they decided they were unable to care for the girls (?).

  • She Stinks!

    “beaten down drunk” – love it, sounds like something I would say. Anyway, Tre has said they wanted Juicy’s brother and wife to help, so not sure what all this means. I think they want Bravo to film it, so they can make some sort of show about it.

    • Marsbars09

      Stinks, I think Pete Giudice’s household might be a bit full with his wife, his three daughters and now his poor mother.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Is this a Bravo trial balloon or a Giudice momager trial balloon? Keep the kids on camera for an entire season so the world will not lose track of Super T?

    • twifan2

      And don’t forget-‘earn’ Tre & Juicy a paycheck, I bet.

    • Anne Green

      Wouldn’t you think that there must be somebody at Bravo, even one person, who feels that it’s no longer about the money and it’s now about protecting those children.

      • twifan2

        Bravo isn’t like TLC, Anne. imo
        🙁

        • Anne Green

          I know twi…..but I would like to think that one person at Bravo doesn’t have ice water running through their veins.

          • twifan2

            That person may be fighting a loosing battle when it comes to ratings & $$$..
            🙁

      • Guardian

        I’m sorry to say it, but no, I don’t.

  • DSS

    Just one mans opinion but I dont believe one bit of this. The LAST person she would ask is her sis in law. And Kathy W? Better chance she would ask Danielle Stuab.

    • Marsbars09

      Agreed. Tre hates Mel and Kathy.

      • cait

        Ain’t down to her as she will be in lock-up ! Have you seen the guys when they are together ? Having fun till she storms in with some imaginary problem !

    • Guardian

      It would certainly be a stretch as I think T is way too jealous of them and would resent the attention/credit this might bring to them – family or not. All remains to be seen.

    • Lucy94

      Well, if nothing else, Danielle has raised sweet, polite, respectful girls.

  • Lucy94

    Agree with all of you. The other women on this franchise have to be freaking out about the possible loss of a paycheck (Melissa) for 15 months. Andy has already said she called him wanting to know what was going to happen. They will do anything to keep airtime. Even if that means babysitting T’s kids. Probably wanting Bravo to make Joe a housewife. Give him a tag line, put him is a dress and let the taping begin.

    • cait

      Said before, a pig in a frock can get citizenship ! Works for me !

    • Marsbars09

      LOL!

  • Sounds to me like a classic “enabling case” If Teresa just allowed Joe to be a dad he’d surprise everyone! She’s just losing her mind cuz she’s not in control!

    • Marsbars09

      Hollywood, Joe is has a drinking problem. That will prohibit him from properly caring for the girls.

      • cait

        He’s got nothing else at the mo. but I think he could surprise everyone, with a little help !

        • Marsbars09

          Help is the key word here. I hope he seeks counseling while watching the girls.

      • MorningYawn

        I think Joe likes a cocktail and has exercised extremely bad judgement (driving!) but I question if his drinking problem is as bad as they make it out to be. They didn’t bring this up at trial until after sentencing. If his lawyers and his wife were truly concerned, wouldn’t they have brought it up before sentencing to mandate that he get serious help? Of course that assumes common sense is involved…

        • cait

          Agree MY ! Think he’s a simple guy who got shafted by a greedy witch ! He is so nice around the other guys, and some of the girls, until the screetreech comes pounding in !

          • cait

            Who am I to talk ? I thought Apollo was too thick to mastermind his 2 massive scams ! I thought he would need someone clever, like, say, a lawyer, to help him pull it together ! What would I know ?

          • MorningYawn

            There defiantly seemed to be consensus by the others that he’s a sweetheart and a lot of fun, he had to be involved pretty deep since there was so damn much fraud going on! Lol!

          • Addie2U

            Didn’t Andy Cohen say he found it odd that when signing on for the show Joe asked him if the Federal Government watches the show (or something similar – relating to ‘could we get in trouble if someone finds out ‘)!

          • MorningYawn

            Ding! Ding! Ding!! He sure did! That is probably why Bravo gave them the job! LOL! Foreshadowing…

        • Marsbars09

          Hi MY! That’s what I was thinking. If Joe’s attorney were seriously concerned about the girls being under Joe’s care, why wouldn’t they arrange for him to seek professional help?

          • MorningYawn

            I bet they have a plan in place… Like others have said, this is a ploy for the show or maybe even some background to be used in her “breakdown.” But I love the idea that they have asked her brothe for help when they were so strongly against it and so snobby about it in past!

        • Atomicbetty1000

          What puts me into absolute giggles is that Theresa has said for season, after season, what a great dad and husband Joe is. Now Theresa is saying Joe is an uninvolved alcoholic he is? Hmmm, whatever is convenient for the moment.

          • MorningYawn

            Yes, yes, yes… How did I forget the obvious! Lol!

          • Addie2U

            Teresa’s using the “Spaghetti defense” → throw out every excuse she can think of, hoping one sticks.

      • Addie2U

        Though we’ve all seen Joe quite blitzed on the show I really don’t think he has a drinking problem. I feel it was just another excuse. I believe what Teresa’s doing is called the “Spaghetti” defense → throw out multiple excuses & hope one sticks.

        “We’re innocent / We did it but . . . / It was the bank’s fault (we just signed whatever they gave us) / I didn’t know what I was signing / I didn’t know what a plea deal meant / It was my lawyers fault / Joe has a drinking problem / I have no one to care for my 4 beautiful dawters” / etc., etc.

        • Marsbars09

          Even Joe’s own attorney said he used to smell of booze when he used to meet with him. To me that’s a problem.

          • Addie2U

            I’ve heard that too but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was all part of their rouse. I wouldn’t put anything past these 2.

  • NOTaTreHuggah

    Give them to ROSIE ONLY!! She will throw them all in the LAGOON!! #WINWIN

    • Lucy94

      Rosie caring for Teresa’s dawters. THERE’S a show I would watch.

      • Marsbars09

        Yeah! That would be a ratings blockbuster!

  • Marsbars09

    Really? Tre is so desperate for someone to watch over her 4 beautiful daughters she’s eliciting help from people she hates the most? If Dina is going to “step in” it won’t be long term. You see how she dumped Tre for Paris.
    I’ve always felt Tre should have left the care of her daughters to Kathy and her mother. To me they are the most logical to raise the girls. The Gorgas’ and Giudices’ are incapable of guiding the girls the way they should be guided.

    • Hey Marsie….it’s Suess! Hope you had a nice New Years!♥︎

      I could not agree more. Melissa is too self-observed and has her own kids to worry about. And Sheila is too busy hating Tre and has her own kids as well.

      • Marsbars09

        Hey Doc! Happy New Year to you! I was wondering if that was you!
        Did you read the e-mail I sent you yesterday?

    • Bad Barbie

      Kathy and her mother speak very ill of those girls parents. Joe has family.

      • Marsbars09

        That is if Joe’s family is capable and has room and the economic resources to care for them.

        • Addie2U

          Are you implying that Teresa & Joe don’t have funds set aside to care for their 4 beautiful dawters?! ☺

          • Marsbars09

            From what I understand it was confiscated from their “surprise visit” from some very official folks last week. 😉

          • Addie2U

            I was actually being facetious. We all know that though Teresa & Joe STOLE 13 million, they never bothered putting money away for their girls futures. Then several months ago Teresa was quoted as saying (paraphrasing) “We don’t have a penny saved for their futures — any money we did have all went to the lawyers trying to defend ourselves from these bogus charges”! ☺

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Then she has the audacity to whine on camera that she has to pay such exorbitant lawyer fees, as if that’s the reason why they girls have no college funds

      • Addie2U

        The only thing I’ve every heard Kathy’s mother say was the truth (& it’s relevant to everyone) → “crime doesn’t pay”. I don’t see that as “speaking very ill” of the parents.

    • Addie2U

      It appears that Kathy & Ritchie did a wonderful job raising their 2 children. With all the hatred Teresa has for them I don’t foresee her ever letting her kids even have a 1 night sleepover.

      • Etta Bredeson

        Kathy and Richie would have been a wonder choice….

  • Come March Joe will likely have his drivers license revoked so Tre better make previsions.

  • misstc

    First Gia needs to do what her mom refuses to do is face reality. Gia can’t sing; so hit the science & math books sweetie. I can say I feel sorry for the kids as they didn’t pick the parents.

    • Marsbars09

      I concur. Gia needs to concentrate on being a normal kid. Her life is hellacious enough.

      • cait

        Sadly, isn’t a normal kid ! Mom has given her Treelusions of grandeur ! She can be a Pop Person or a Reality Person ! A far cry from her wanting to have an education and be a lawyer !

        • Atomicbetty1000

          Or, to not think that far into the future, a normal girl 13 should worry about this weeks tests, books they like reading, hoping to get to go to the mall to get a burger, wondering if a boy likes them, and dreaming of being 16 and loaned the family car to meet up with friends. Theresa has ruined her daughters lives, and sadly, either she cannot understand that or Theresa just doesn’t care.

    • Bad Barbie

      When are kids ever at fault anyway.

  • cait

    TF2, there’s been a landslide, secret vote that says Chats is getting Demonia ! Read it and weep !

    • cait

      Replace salmon, caviar and tuna with gruel, bread and water and you’ll be well prepared !

  • Bad Barbie

    That’s funny because she said at the reunion that she has that Joe’s family will. This sounds like BS….

    • Hey Bad Barbie. Teresa also said she wasn’t guilty of her crimes then turned around and pled guilty. Let’s not forget, she also said she didn’t know what she was signing. Rumor has it, his family HATES her with a passion! I don’t think Joe’s fam is an option.

      • Addie2U

        And let’s not forget that after she was sentenced she said she didn’t know what a plea deal meant!!

  • DLister

    I’d love to know who this “source” is; I call total BS.

  • Lucy94

    Joe can’t care for those girls. He has his chicken eating dogs to tend to!

    • cait

      Could be kiddie-eating dogs, seeing Gia screaming inside that cage !

        Oh Cait…

          Well kids scream, don’t they ? Drama Queens ?

    • Marsbars09

      LOL! Oh Lucy!
      Seriously, when the creditors take the mansion away, I wonder if he will place them in an animal shelter?

      • Atomicbetty1000

        I’ll bet that Joe leaves the angry, hungry, dogs inside the house for creditors to deal with.

        Who ? the kids ?

        • Marsbars09

          No, the dogs and chickens.

        • Addie2U

          Sadly the kids may have a better chance being raised in an animal shelter. At least they’d (hopefully) learn compassion & empathy.

  • MorningYawn

    I love this picture of Gia. Very little makeup, enhances her natural qualities. Very appropriate for an 8th grader. Not the trashy pics from her video shoots.

  • cait

    The reason we all survive is that we realise Corporations are out there to make money ! It’s Bravo folk, FFS, not Dr. Phil !

  • Flanagan

    Andy Cohen and the Bravo machine would never let a single opportunity for money and ratings go by, and I would not be surprised if A.C. himself will be at the wheel driving Teresa to her date with destiny come Monday morning. Just think of what he could wring out of that: Weeping, sobbing wild eyed Teresa Giudice, her last minute hysterical recriminations, hyperventilating as the prison looms into view, and finally, the prison guards prying her bony fingers loose from the car door, all the while as Teresa is screeching “WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO MEEEEEEEEEE”

    • Atomicbetty1000

      Andy better be careful, Teresa may get so anger that she pushes Andy out of his car seat. just like she pushed him back into his chair.

      • Flanagan

        Maybe he could get a cage installed, like the ones in police cars, to keep Teresa safely ensconced in the back seat.

        • Atomicbetty1000

          Good investment if they are going to keep Theresa on the payroll. He could drive her around. The added bonus is if Andy needs to drive Milania to one of the housewife gigs, he will be safe!

          • Flanagan

            AH HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

  • Anne Green

    I look at the littlest one’s face….that is innocence!!! There is NOTHING that anyone could ever say to this child to help her understand that in just a couple of days she won’t be seeing Mommy everyday like she is used to. This sweet child did nothing more than to be unlucky enough to be born to these parents.

    • Anne Green

      That little “rude” one….I can’t remember her name…..she looks like Teresa without makeup. No?

      • cait

        Demonia, aka, Milania !

        • Atomicbetty1000

          I even feel bad for Milania. Poor parenting, never being corrected, is going to make Theresa’s prison date even tougher for Milania. Poor Melissa’s children to have to be terrorized by Milania. I think Milania may need a lot of one on one time to give her what she needs to behave properly. One adult to Milania soothing her poor behavior until she understands what kindness is.

          • cait

            Couldn’t agree more as she seems to terrorise her sibs !

          • Atomicbetty1000

            As sad as it is for them for their mom to go to jail, it might actually be an opportunity to help the girls develop kind behavior. Maybe even the crazy idea that material things are the only good things in the world can fall to the way side.

          • MorningYawn

            I just fear T will undo it all when she gets out, creating more issues for those girls!

          • Addie2U

            Prison visits may have a positive impact on 3 of the girls but unfortunately I see Milania saying “wow this is cool”.

          • Addie2U

            I foresee Demonia (aka Milania) going to visit mom in prison & saying “wow this is so cool”. And then sadly (if someone doesn’t step in) I foresee Demonia herself doing a stint in the hoosegow.

          • Atomicbetty1000

            One word for Milania…”juvee!”

    • cait

      So why at the beginning of series 6, was she punching the crap out of her sister’s face whilst Mom giggled, saying “Don’t, Audriana, it’s Christmas” “Knock the shit out of her tomorrow” ! Made that last bit up, people !

    • Marsbars09

      I’m tearing up at your comment Anne.
      This is what Tre and Joe’s greed has done-traumatized her innocent babies. They didn’t ask to be born.

    • Atomicbetty1000

      Just sad.

    • Addie2U

      It’s pretty sad when total strangers care more about the children & their welfare than the parents do.

    • itsjustme

      And THAT Anne is the tragedy of this whole thing. The innocence of those kids who did nothing wrong. THAT is what breaks my heart. I don’t give 2 shits about their parents, but those kids don’t deserve any of this…:(

  • DoneWithBravo

    I can’t wait for these boobs to GET REAL and give up the facade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The kids are “too busy”? Really? Who in the hell is even paying for their activities??? Who is paying their utility bills?? They have much more to worry about than shuffling the kids to places. 1. FIND A HOME (live with a relative, etc…), 2. PACK/SELL EVERYTHING IN THE MCMANSION, 3. GIVE UP ANY OVER-THE-TOP, FAKE-RICH ACTIVITIES: that includes just about anything that they’re all doing. Go kick a fucking ball around. Join the YMCA. Time to get real! Morons.

    • Atomicbetty1000

      I don’t think the government is going to allow the Giudice’s to pack or sell anything. I think they have to smuggle out what they want to keep, and even then they better be careful of what they “lift.”

      • MorningYawn

        if it did happen, I recall the story said that every think in the home was to be frozen…. No in or out , gifts to relatives… Oh yeah, they are being watched!

    • Marsbars09

      Done, once the prison doors lock behind Tre I think creditors are going to kick into overdrive getting whatever valuable item they can.

      • Addie2U

        If that does truly happen I imagine we’ll start reading & hearing stories about how mean the government & creditors are to do this to those poor girls while their mother is away serving time in the Federal Penn.

        • Marsbars09

          BLAH BLAH BLAH. It’s just noise to me Addie.

      • DoneWithBravo

        I agree. Too bad they didn’t do this the right way and have a huge estate sale and have someone there to hand the $$ right over to the court. This was is much more demeaning, unless Joe and the girls all leave before it happens. Tre’s a creep, to be going off on ski trips and pretending that everything’s fine right up until the last second! She should have been packing things up for the sale, or to turn it all over. I’m sure she’s busy hiding crap!

  • Lucy94

    Does anyone know if her girls have to go to school on Monday?

    • Marsbars09

      I’ve read that they do. I wonder if they’re going to go to school or stay home on that day.

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Yes. Jersey schools are back in session on Monday, the 5th.

    • Lucy94

      She should tuck them in Sunday night and leave. They need a very disciplined schedule. No more drama.

      • Marsbars09

        Agreed.

      • Addie2U

        That would require being selfless & as we’ve seen (repeatedly) Teresa doesn’t have it in her. It’s all about “me, me, me”.

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      I dout they go back to school at all……will probably be home schooled til the heat is off

  • Brassy

    Kudos is the 13th hour really!!!! If her children were so important to her ,then the details of who would be caring for them should have been done the day she was sentenced, at least that is what I would have done. By the way, was that Joe driving? Guess he has his license back? She is the biggest moronic idiot ever,, worse mother of the year award goes to her… Expecting her 13 year old to be a Mom??? She expects her to also become the moneymaker although ONLY 40 fans showed up,which was probably family anyway. Why the hell did she commit the crimes, didn’t she realize her children do the time alongside her???

    • Addie2U

      Teresa lives in a fantasy world & if she doesn’t know the meaning of a word or phrase — it doesn’t exist to her. I’m sure she figured if she puts prison out of her mind & doesn’t think about it, she won’t go there! Now the closer the date comes when she needs to turn herself in, (along with others continually telling her – “This is real”!) — she’s just now starting to realize “maybe I will have to go to prison, after all” & “just in case” . . . ).
      Her shoes are probably worn out from clicking them together (& saying “there’s no place like home)!☺

    • Marsbars09

      Great commentary Brassy. Tre & Joe placed their needs above their own. To hell with their daughters’ well being.

    • ann

      Teresa has ssaid from day one that joes family will help with the girls. She saidit before at past reunion amd she sid it the day after the sentence with the sit down with andy that is why i do not believe this story

  • BuckJohnson

    They are definitely going to ramp up o the taking of goods and such and also garnishing anything they can to pay back the govt. and also the other creditors. Remember minus the IRS and govt. they owe close to 13 million dollars. Joe’s family does hate her because if it wasn’t for the show they may have gotten away with what they where doing but since she shined light on it someone noticed and here we are. This has been done many of times by people but the show and rumors getting out pulled her down. And now she is trying to figure out what to do because she doesn’t trust Joe? You know the reason why they really don’t want to take “care” of the girls is because it’s more than just having a place to sleep and eat and such. It’s about those same people being financially responsible for them and many of those people either don’t have the money or don’t want too.

    That raid did happen and I totally believe what you wrote about it allaboutthetea. Someone either ratted them out and/or they knew that those days before christmas they wouldn’t be thinking that people would be coming in to confiscate and caught them flat footed. I would truly love to know how much money was taken it sounded like alot. And as some have said there isn’t any pics of her kids at home with her and Joe doing christmas tells me they lost everything. The sick thing everybody is that much of this could have been avoided even at the late date of her doing the crime and going in front of the judge. The judge herself said that she was going to give her probation and such but they continued to hide assets and the judge called them out on it and they just kept playing dumb (both of them) and so she gave her 15 months when truly she could have been even more brutal and gave her 22 months or more. So it’s her denial that put her in the position that she is in now. And if that wasn’t good enough she should have told her lawyer to have Joe serve his sentence first and hers second. This way she could still make money and work on a RHONJ and a show that Bravo would have loved to have given her by herself trying to rebuild her brand and given 4 years she could have made enough money to possibly have not only saved herself but also pay some if not all the debt. And given that time she and her lawyers could have worked out a deal with the court that she was responsible for so much of it and try to do a hard luck whatever. And who knows, that many years she could have done alot of community stuff and such and in so doing could have petitioned the court to change the judgement from going to prison to probation.

    She didn’t do any of this and Joe neither because they believe they didn’t do anything wrong. There where so many bites of the apple that Teresa had but she didn’t take them because she thought she and Joe where smart, your not. Your just a bunch of “Gavones” that got their scam ratted out and seen on international television.

    • Addie2U

      Re her asking the Judge to serve her time 1st — that would have been a great idea but as we know Teresa & Joe never think ahead. It’s all about instant gratification & as I wrote below, Teresa lives in a fantasy world & I’m sure she thought she’d weasel her way out of it (Excuse: “I didn’t know what a plea deal meant” / Firing & hiring new attorneys, etc. → none of that worked). Only now with 3 more nights to sleep in her own bed is it starting to sink in (“Maybe this will really happen after all”).

    • Ivy

      I totally agree with everything that you are saying. However I feel that the Judge has Teresa serving her time first is because when Juicy serves/completes his time in prison; he will be automatically deported. I don’t believe he is going to be allowed to stay in the United States. INS laws are very strict at this time and age.

      • chacha1

        he also may have to serve additional time for his other fraudulant crimes against the state

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      AMEN!

    • Etta Bredeson

      Right on !!!! and Amen to that… 1000% agree….

  • Addie2U

    And as we draw closer to the bewitching hour, Teresa has only 3 more nights to sleep in her own comfy bed. After that it’s a flimsy mattress.

  • Gabby

    Joe’s mother and the rest of the grandparents will more than likely step up. Joe will be off drunk somewhere.

    • Marsbars09

      Agreed.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      Yep, he has a year and a half to be shyte faced drunk..

      • Gabby

        And especially with Teresa gone and out of the house…he really will get shitfaced.

    • Birdie

      With some floozy.

    • chacha1

      Joe will tell his girls he has a night job but he will be with his side piece, you know the one he was on the phone with when he called Teresa a bitch and a CU Next Tuesday …

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    I hope & pray that whomever steps up to help care for the girls, will have some counseling available for them. They are going to need it.
    It is beyond sad & unbelievably shameful that their parents chose this. That they have allowed this life altering hell, this life shattering chaos & turmoil to be visited upon their children. Unfortunately the stigma of the Giudice’s criminal actions will stay with them a very long time.
    3 more sleeps & a wake up Tre. Then everything you & your girls know will be changed forever.

    Hope you & Juicy think it was worth it! SMDH!

    • Sliceo’pie

      I don’t believe they thought they’d get caught-I think on some level, they felt entitled to this money. The longer they went without getting caught the more entitled they felt. It’s really sick. I live in New Jersey and about two years ago we had a horrible storm and a lot of people homes were ruined. Joe’s company sent out fliers that they would fix these people’s homes and handle the insurance. He came in an did sub-par work on these homes (google it) and took the insurance money without finishing the jobs. These families, who were already devastated by the storm, were left with their homes still in a state of disrepair and no insurance money to pay for a new contractor. This was all within the last year or so. One word for someone who would do that-Scum.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Hi’ya Slice. yes I know. I am a NY’er. Hurricane Sandy.
        That filthy thief Joe, took their money & left those people in shambles.

        It’s beyond despicable.
        He even left his own tenants with no heat during one of the coldest winters ever recorded, (the polar vortex.), claiming they never paid their rent which was proven later to be more Giudice BS.
        I even read one story where he did work for this one person, from Keansberg, & I believe she found out later that her family could have died from the carbon monoxide poisoning in her home & that the house could have possibly blown up due to Joe’s shoddy business practices.

  • >:-|OPINIONATED-deal with it!

    If Gia is “in charge” of the girls, she will recent that roll. Teenagers don’t want to be parents.

    • Birdie

      Absolute TRUTH. I have seen it up close and personal.

      • Marsbars09

        Happy New Year Birdie!

        • Birdie

          Hey Marsie!! Happy 2015! I want to hear about your latest hobby!

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Happy, happy new year my Birdie! Hope you & yours have a happy, healthy, blessed & joyous new year! Big hugs to you!

        • Birdie

          Hey T-Lily!! Happy New Year.. I hope 2015 is a fab one for you! ((HUGS)) back at ya!

    • Marsbars09

      I think it’s absolutely deplorable they’d put that much responsibility on a young girls’ shoulders.

      • Addie2U

        It’s all par for the course. These 2 are known for making the wisest of choices☺

      • >:-|OPINIONATED-deal with it!

        That would be the biggest mistake she could make. Not only will Gia recent her for putting that much responsibility on her shoulders, the girls will no longer look at Tre as THE parent. They already don’t respect her; it will be worst.

        • Birdie

          What happened in my case is that the kid stuck it out but bottled up tons of anger and resentment…now she’s older and the minute she got freedom, she went butt wild. Plus there can be guilt because they don’t think they should be angry…even though it’s completely normal.

  • Sliceo’pie

    I don’t believe anything about this story except that Teresa is afraid of leaving the girls with Joe and Gia will need to step up and help out with the kids. I believe Teresa’s relationship with her brother and Melissa is almost non-existent and I think she hates Kathy. Dina no longer lives nearby in Franklin Lakes-she moved to the city a few months ago and while it’s probably only a 40 minute drive (with no traffic) I don’t see her driving out to Jersey to pitch in and drive the kids to school. I think Joe’s family with whom Teresa is close (particularly his sister) will pick up the slack. I’m curious how much longer the family will be able to stay in the house-I can’t imagine anybody wanting to buy it so maybe they’ll stick it out till they’re kicked out by the bank.
    I’m ashamed that I know this much info about the wretched people…; (

    • ButterflyArtGuild

      I feel bad for them. Time goes slower for the kids.

  • I feel horribly for those kids. That’s it. Joe and Teresa got and are getting what they deserve. The kids are not.

    • chacha1

      don’t feel bad, Treape and Jailbird Joe never gave them a thought when committing their crimes ….. too bad they are not going to be gone longer

    • lemon lime

      Breanna your aviator cracks me up he’s so cute!

      • TGtP – Nene’s New Wig

        I agree on the avatar pic!!!!!
        So blasted Fun-Nene!

  • Norrth

    Color me stunned. I just read comments from trehuggers who, despite the court documents proving otherwise, are swearing that the Giudices have paid down their creditors. Some are as bad at understanding money as their beloved couple How much money do they think this couple has made, in order to believe they’d put a serious dent in that 13 million?. What did the docs show? They’d paid roughly 75K on the debt in all the years these cases have been dragging on? The debt doesn’t seem to have stopped them from buying cars, clothes, etc. Save the hero worship for real heroes!

  • chacha1

    I notice Jailbird Joe’s family is not in the equasion…. bet his mother and sister blame Joe for the fathers death and the fact that he took all the money for his defense depleating the inheritance for his sister and that other criminal brother Pete

  • chacha1

    Maybe tomorrow she will fake a mental breakdown like Jesse Jackson Jr did …. and an ambulance will take her to a medical facility.. but as we all know it will be another lie on her part to try and keep her scam going thinking she is smarter than anyone else

  • DLister

    Awww, Daddy cradling his baby girl. I like that.

  • Lucy94

    I just checked another site and people are posting like she is going to the death chamber! I really don’t get the misplaced sympathy for her. It’s 15 months for crimes she knowingly committed, not death row at San Quentin for God’s sake!

    • Brassy

      I totally agree with you, It isn’t as If she is going into the gas chamber. Let’s
      see what tomorrow brings. What is guaranteed is that this media frenzy will end:-)

    • HWjunkie

      Ding!

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    Kathy should be guardian for the girls she seems to be the most responsible and stable…..Rosie will be good for them too……these girls will need stability and most of all love

    • misstc

      Seems it isn’t fair for Kathy to be saddled with four, wild & undisciplined girls. The whole point of truncating the sentences was so one parent could be there for the children. My only wish was that useless drunk POS Joe went in first so Tre have time for the girls to get older.

  • TGtP – Nene’s New Wig

    I don’t know if anybody else said this or not…but….

    Who in their right mind would step in, as a RHW “friend”, to attempt to direct Teresa’s girls?

    Seriously, the load of aggression and challenging and sadness alone are reasons to not step on that floor covered with egg shells (I was going to say cut glass)!

    And if they have their own family of growing youngsters, why would you want a child that acts out like Milania around your kids to teach them how to be like “Milania”? Kids many times, if not usually, learn by example.

    Enough said….

    • Brassy

      Send the kids to Caroline Manzo!!!!

  • TGtP – Nene’s New Wig

    This is totally off topic….
    Did anybody see anywhere what the Giudice family and kids gave and “got” as Christmas gifts?
    In years past, we always heard what they “got”.

    • I1ST5XS

      No, I’ve been wondering that too. Especially since Gia told one of those entertainment gossip shows on TV (I think Extra but not sure) that she wanted a Cartier bracelet and Louis Vuitton Luggage for Christmas! LOL!!

      • TGtP – Nene’s New Wig

        Yeah…you know that those kids have been directed to have expectations that are soh out of whack.
        I don’t get it…what’s wrong with being brought up by parents that are middle class, honest, actually listen to you and discipline when it’s necessary to help shape a kid into a good adult? As a kid, I know that my family struggled, like most do, but we grew up to be honest adults that do and did the right thing and we didn’t get into trouble doing the wrong thing.
        Off topic-I don’t appreciate when people make up a load of crap about me, which unfortunately happens on other sites. And for some reason, it gets believed for who knows what reasons. But when the facts are in black and white, substantiated and proved, why is it denied and furthermore questioned. And that is the case with these two convicted felons…and that truth isn’t going to change anytime soon…mainly because there is too much evidence to validate the findings.

        • I1ST5XS

          Teresa and joe are really despicable. I just don’t understand how they could have any supporters or fans. There is nothing appealing about either one of them! She treats her family like total shit, lies, manipulates, shrieks, pushes, she acts like a maniac 80% of the time on RHWNJ. They are common thieves!

  • cait

    On another show, could you imagine Yuccki Gunnvalson looking after your kids ? Her own two, grown-up kids are scared to death of her ! The Leakes boys are struggling, the Barney kids are damaged, Dim Z has no interest in her kids, pawning them off to whom ever ! Remember her giving birth to the first of Toy Boy Troy’s babies, and doing a Yeeugh whilst passing child off before even a cuddle !

  • Shinningstar

    She might have a hard time getting someone to take all 4 together but I don’t think she’ll have a problem getting someone to care for the quiet ones (Gabriella and Audriana). I also read a report that Gia wanted to stay with a friend. The problem will be finding someone to deal with that terror Milania.

  • RonnieIsBack

    I finally watched Blue Jasmine this weekend. ..that had Tre Gudice written all over it..delusional housewife (except the main character didn’t go to jail).
