The Final Countdown! Emergency Help For Teresa Giudice Girls As Their Mother Heads To The Slammer

Posted on Jan 4 2015 - 4:26am by BeachSpin

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice, is only hours away from surrendering to begin a 15-month prison sentence. As the clock ticks, one of the touchiest and most passionate subjects surrounding this family mess is exactly how Teresa & Joe have handled preparing their four daughters.

Everyone can agree that these undeserving children are getting a raw deal, but it is also believed that with a careful strategy, the trauma can be lessened. Reports have surfaced, claiming that the two younger girls have been left in the dark about the hard truth, and Joe and Teresa have confirmed the same naive belief. What are some recommended guidelines, advising how to bring children of the incarcerated through such a trial in the healthiest way possible?

The New Jersey Department of Corrections is on it, and has published a manual titled When A Parent Goes to Prison/ A Guide to Discussing Your Incarceration With Your Children.” While this is a state oriented publication, to kids, prison is prison, and this easy to understand and sensible guide could certainly come in handy at Camp Giudice right now. After all, common-sense can’t be stolen or bought, and based on all the info that has leaked throughout this strainer-like crap storm, common-sense is in short supply with this criminal reality couple.

First of all, the manual stresses that TRUTH is essential for kids to process what’s happening in a healthy way.

“Children need to be told the truth about their parents’ situation. You build their trust when you tell the truth – even if it hurts. Besides, if they find out you lied about a loved one in prison, they’ll be hurt twice as hard …about the imprisonment and your deception. While you may believe that you can explain a loved one’s absence with a vague answer, (they are in the hospital, working for the state or away at school) children usually find out.  Also, if you lie about this, what else are you not telling the truth about?”

That last sentence is certainly a loaded question! The guide also reminds the parent that if kids aren’t given an explanation that makes sense, their imaginations tend to take them to  places worse than the truth.

“Provide children with guidance about what to tell people outside the family. Should they say, “you’re separated” or “he’s away” or “in prison”? Every situation is different – so help children prepare for questions, teasing or offers of support from others. Children may also need guidance in dealing with stigmatization and teasing that they may experience in the playground.”

Unfortunately the guide doesn’t offer helpful tips for well-known children of high profile television personalities. Clearly a custom strategy needs to be worked out for when those awkward scenarios inevitably arise. There is also a section breaking down how different ages process exactly what is going on. Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana represent all of the age scenarios. 

For younger children (age 5 and under):

Children at this age will probably be most concerned with where you are, when they will see you again, and when you are coming home. Try to use words that your children can relate to and understand.  At this age, children generally don’t understand what prison is, or why someone is sent to prison.

For children in elementary school (ages 6-10 years): 

Children at this age may begin to want more information and start to ask more questions. Children around 7-8 years old are beginning to develop a sense of right and wrong. They may begin to understand what prison is and that people are sent to prison because they did something wrong.

Teenagers:

Research indicates that 40 percent of teenagers who have an incarcerated parent visit them less frequently during their teenage years. Although they still need parental guidance and structure, they are developing their own sense of identity separate from their parents.  It is important that you let them know what your expectations of them are.
 

The manual points out that often the prisoner maintains false innocence, because of the family rejection that an admission of guilt might trigger. The suggested strategy to address the emotional turmoil that the Giudice children are likely struggling with is simple, but powerful. 

“Many children are extremely angry. They feel abandoned by parents who risked incarceration by their conflict with the law. In most cases, the incarcerated parent simply needs to apologize to the child for the upset and upheaval that s/he has caused. They need to ask the child to forgive and to be a partner in rebuilding their lives. It takes courage to have these conversations. It means risking anger and rejection. It means admitting causing pain to those you love.”

Can I hear a collected AMEN!!  I sincerely hope Joe and Teresa have had this conversation with their girls, and if not yet, NOW. The paragraph goes on to encourage other adults in the children’s lives to support the ongoing relationship with the prisoner, with the hopes of building honesty, which leads to healthy bonding. Another concern is how the child copes with separating from the parent after a visit, and the critical need for reassurance to thwart the deep feelings of distress that ‘abandoning’ a parent in prison can bring. Once again, honesty is emphasized. 

“Answer the question, “Are you OK?” such as “I am not OK in here but I can certainly handle it”, or “I am OK in some ways. I have a bed and food and books to read. But I am not OK because prison is not a good place to be. And most of all I can’t be with you” balance the truth with some reassurance that the parent misses the child and is not in severe danger.”

As Teresa officially changes her address tomorrow, I sincerely hope that a common sense approach such as this is implemented. These girls deserve every chance to come through this family trauma in one piece. I will end with one last hopeful excerpt from this lengthy, but helpful guide. 

“Prison may not be the best place to improve one’s parenting, but it has been done. There is growing interest in starting and expanding programs to help prisoners learn the skills of parenting.”

    The “Guidice Guide ” to parenting – lie lie lie

  • cait

    Did someone say she has to READ this booklet ? Get De Dikshunarry !

    • Marsbars09

      LOL! Great point. Tre nor Joe can probably understand the guide.

      • cait

        Simples ! 1. Get up ! 2. Tell the kids ! 3. Go straight to jail !
        Even I can understand that !

        • Marsbars09

          What simple to you isn’t simple for all. 😉

  • >:-|OPINIONATED-deal with it!

    I have seen it too many times. Kids become resentful, angry, and aloof; they often end up with the wrong crowd who feed on their insecurities.

    Whoever takes the role of caretaker, I hope they can educate those children, but most likely than not Teresa will get out and reverse everything by spoiling them to make come for her absence.

  • cait

    Sadly, these children will probably never follow parental instruction again ! Who the F##* are you to be telling me what to do ?

  • Brassy

    Sadly it will be Teresa’s family and friend Dina Manzo who will have to tell the children the truth cause Teresa is still all bout herself.She ants everyone else to be the bad guy.Teresa is still in La La land of red roses and Fabilini.. She only reads positive stories written about her and thinks any harsh critics are just jealous of her,,, She has done everything wrong concerning her upcoming quickly May I add incarceration. in prison, so expect problems with other inmates because she can’t come down off that ego trip.

  • itsjustme

    The problem is “common sense” and the Guidices do not exist. I truly believe Tre will leave tomorrow without having been honest with her girls in a way they will understand. These guidelines are very informative, and I so wish Tre and Joe could for once in their lives be the parents these girls have always needed, parents who put their own selfish wants and needs to the side for the sake of their children. It’s just a sad, sad situation all around for the girls..:(

  • TartLemon

    Teresa still conduct business old school before internet, social media and cameras everywhere catching their every single move. No, Teresa and Joe don’t get it. Otherwise they would not have been flaunting the CRIMINAL behavior on tv.

  • itsjustme

    This is sad for me to think this, but who thinks that after the girls go to bed tonight, we will find out there has been a 911 call made about a suicide attempt? Tre has proven time and time again that it’s all about HER and IMO she still won’t be thinking bout how her actions will affect her children and will only be thinking of ANY way possible to stop tomorrow from happening.

    • quickchick2

      I’ve been wondering about that, too. She appears so delusional that I can’t begin to imagine just how BAD she’s going to lose it at the zero hour.

    • TartLemon

      No problem. There are prison hospital facilities, too.

      • itsjustme

        Hopefully by tonight ALL and I do mean ALL sharp objects, medications, alcohol, and anything else will be removed from the house.

    • Marsbars09

      I don’t know about a suicide from Tre, but I am very worried about Gia. I don’t know if you are aware, but she has posted some tweets regarding how stressed she feels and a picture of a gun next to it.
      I don’t care about Tre and Joe anymore as their fates have been sealed. The immediate concern should be about the girls. They are in extreme pain right now.

      • chacha1

        Teresa probably told her to instagram her with a gun so maybe the judge will see it and let her stay home on house arrest

        • Marsbars09

          If I were the judge I’d conduct an investigation of what’s going in that house.

          • chacha1

            Gia wants to live with her girlfriend so they can sing so where is the Gia that boo hooed that she was going to take care of her sisters so that she will someday be a good mother ….HA !!!!!

          • Marsbars09

            Gia is too young to play mother anyway. She needs to be treated like the young teenager she is.

          • roxie

            tre is probably behind that too actually, hunny go live wif yer friend so yous can become famous singgggerss and we can save da housee

          • chacha1

            Hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa go live wif yer friend OMG hahahahaaaaaa that is so funny

          • roxie

            sadly it probably actually happened

          • twifan2

            Probably more of Tre’s crap to gain sympathy for Gia.

      • itsjustme

        Yes, I saw the reports on that and am also very concerned. She is a 13 yr old girl who sadly has been given very grownup responsibilities because of her parents.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Yes. mars. Gia’s tweets are very alarming.

    • roxie

      there was a nasty sex offender on trial about to go to his sentencing in a town near me and pulled some “heart pain” bullshit and cops actually had to take him to the hospital per law. it delayed sentencing for quite some time so i could see tre doing this on her own or per helpful advice.

      • chacha1

        I have posted this ad nauseum but you can google Jesse Jackson Jr. he tried that medical distress crap with the feds and even admitted himself to Mayo Clinic crying and carrying on for a fake diagnosis of depression …. the feds waited a few months and he is now in prison for 2-1.2 years

        • roxie

          what a joke it really pisses me off. the worst pat of the story i typed above is that the filthy pedo has caused a victim-a teenager-to commit suicide over his distress. and there he was pulling diva crap. when the criminal has rights and not just that, are catered to, i get all riled up

  • TartLemon

    When does school resume for the girls?

    • itsjustme

      I believe I heard it starts back up tomorrow. It is my hope that those girls are NOT sent to school tomorrow. It is my hope they say their good byes to their mother in the early morning and then go to some relative that isn’t in the public eye( in other words, none of their immediate family members) and have someone there to keep them occupied for the day. I real wish would be that they are allowed to stay out of school the whole week in hopes that all the hoopla surrounding them will have died down by then.

      • Anne Green

        I think the normalcy and structure of the girls returning to school tomorrow would be a better distraction for them. They will see friends, talk about Christmas gifts received….a better distraction than with a relative who they will ask questions of…..what do you say.

        • itsjustme

          I’m afraid all talk in schools tomorrow and sadly for the next week will be about Tre heading to prison. What the relatives will say to them is sadly something their parents should have been saying all along. That they are going away because of their poor choices in life and they now are paying the consequences of their actions. Of course it should be done in a way that is age appropriate.

          • BeachSpin

            A mom’s instinct is to protect children from pain, I completely understand your position.

        • BeachSpin

          I agree with you Anne, especially after a long break. Get back into the groove quickly, because the longer they wait, the more glaring the issue becomes. I think the kids will shut up quicker if they face them right away.

          • Guardian

            I would hope too, that they would return to school and that the teachers/schools keep a close eye on them. They will probably be numb but there is a lot to be said for routine/distraction even when it may be the last thing one wants to do. It’s a tough call with children, even with adults. I just think that staying at home surrounded by “her” even though she is gone, might be more upsetting than comforting. All may depend too on how and when she leaves. Many tears and heartache for them that is for sure. Nothing and no one can replace your Mom in most cases.

          • BeachSpin

            I completely agree…it will probably needs to be a game day type decision. I do hope that they go back Tuesday, at the latest. Their absence will keep far more tongues wagging than normalcy would.

          • Guardian

            Yes – I imagine it will be such a media circus around that area for the next 36 hours, perhaps longer, watching and reporting on all of the comings and goings. Something that can’t be controlled but will probably impact their decisions. I hope they have support and I’m not talking about advice from WF! As an extension, wondering what hoo-ha AC will shower us with tomorrow night on WWHL?

          • BeachSpin

            Probably some sort of contrived hoo-ha shrouded in grimacing concern, really just veiling his passion for the delish drama.

          • Guardian

            For sure, for sure! AC serves two masters I think – some sense of feelings and the exposure his villainess has brought both him and Bravo.

          • Guardian

            And, the “sources” are going to be out in full force!

          • roxie

            agreed his fake sympathy is ridiculous he is pissing himself over the ratings gold this circus gives him

          • Marsbars09

            Yep!

          • Marsbars09

            ITA. Andy is probably relishing the moment Tre goes into prison. You know he doesn’t like Tre or Joe.

          • Marsbars09

            Great point Guardian. Once the kids return to school I hope administrators, teachers, counselors, and psychologists help to keep a close watch on them.

          • Guardian

            They may be the only professional help they get? I don’t know, but think they are trying to keep this within the “family.” I don’t know what plans, if any, they have with regard to the press for the next while that will no doubt be as close as they can legally get. It would be a lot for children to witness even though they have some experience with the press and cameras.

          • Marsbars09

            Some help is better than no help. I doubt the family is into seeking outside therapy for the girls. All I’m stating is that at least they have some resources at their schools.

          • Guardian

            Sorry – used the question mark at the end of the first sentence as in, “Yes, think that may be all they get – but they need more.” Wrong punctuation to use and I will edit it now.

          • Marsbars09

            No problem Guardian. 🙂

          • Guardian

            I love this site and the posters and never want to offend anyone. I like that people can disagree without going nuts. If ever I write something that is misunderstood or offensive I hope others will question so I can make it right. Policing ourselves and each other is what makes this a safe place.

        • chacha1

          Milania will be bullied by those she bullies … no tear for that nasty child

        • Marsbars09

          I disagree. It’s going to be a media circus when Tre reports to prison tomorrow. It’s best to let that die down and then send the girls to school.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        All NY & NJ schools return to classes tomorrow, Monday the 5th.

      • Marsbars09

        ITA. It’s going to be a rough day tomorrow and the girls do not need to be in school.

  • TartLemon

    What this manual doesn’t take into account and couldn’t possibly, is the reality tv bowl Teresa has thrust on her daughters. The kids are living the high life on the stolen $$ which can never be repaid and Teresa is making no provisions to teach them any different.

    • Lucy94

      These kids are not only going to lose their mom and dad for a period of time; they’re going to lose their entire way of life. Their home and any monies will be taken by the government, creditors or lawyers. The life they have live up until now is a thing of the past.

      • Guardian

        You’re right, T going to prison is just the beginning of the upheaval they are bound to face. They too will have a new reality.

        • BeachSpin

          True…these girls badly need a new reality. It’s too bad that they have to travel such a rough road to get there, but I think positive changes can potentially stem from the experience.

          • chacha1

            their lives have been very easy and over indulged… and they will continue to be pampered by the Guidice family

        • Lucy94

          The effects of all this will be with them all they way to adulthood. They need to adjust to living the life that 90% of Americans live. They need to learn compassion for others, to give back and to pay if forward. Get involved with a charity. And I don’t mean throw a lavish gala with the pretense of raising money.

          • Guardian

            And, to understand what is really most important in this world. As Beach Spin said, “positive changes can stem” and I agree. Material things are wonderful to possess and enjoy as long as you can understand their place and value relative to yourself and your loved ones – and providing you can afford them. They are worthless baggage though if, in the end, they are all you have to cling to. Thank you for the comment re the galas – I find them disgusting.

          • chacha1

            ITA about the scamming ‘charities/galas’ that only line their pockets and help no one but themselves …..

          • Guardian

            To see and be seen, flaunt your status and what you’re wearing, eating ridiculous food and drinking the best, feeling good because you “gave” when your clothes, jewels, cars, etc. could keep many going for years. So what if so much of it was donated? The donations weren’t “freebies” – so much more could be realized. And then all talk about how much fun they had, gearing up for the next one – many with red carpets no less. I don’t give to any unless I know exactly where and how the money is going to be spent. Since they are non-profit in most cases, I check their financials because they are public record.

          • chacha1

            I give to St. Jude’s and Wounded Warriors …..

          • Guardian

            Both financially solid disclosures – unlike some that have been in the news past and present and are biggies. I believe one should give but not throw it away with those who play a lot of smoke and mirror financial games – regardless of their long standing histories of helping. Maybe at one time but too much waste and too top heavy now.

          • chacha1

            Exactly I do my homework …. and to think Dina wants us to believe she gives money to children with cancer …. Karma will get that thief

          • Addie2U

            I guess that means no more begging for money on a site that’s set up to help those truly in need!

        • chacha1

          no upheaval, Gia will live with a GF and party down, Milania will continue to treat everyone nasty and call them buttheads and the other 2 will be spoiled and pampered

      • chacha1

        wish they would have thought about that 10 years ago when they were committing the crimes…these dirtbags deserve more time and why should I care about her 2 spoiled nasty doorters (with the exception of Gabriella and Audriana) they didn’t care and neither did Jailbird Joe care about them when he called Treape their mother, a CU Next Tuesday on TV

      • Marsbars09

        Yep!

      • Imstillstanding666

        I disagree about the kids lifestyle changing. I think tre has been assured by her attorneys the mansion will still be there when she gets out. Foreclosure is a lengthy process. That’s why she didn’t move the kids. And we will still see the kids on outings/activities payed for by family and friends. They may even be more spoiled (if that’s possible) because people will feel sorry for them

        • itsjustme

          I can’t help but feel that foreclosure proceedings have already started. I can’t see how they have possibly been continuing to make the mortgage payments on loans that were falsely given to them in the first place.
          So, IMO it is very possible that at some point within this next year Joe and the girls will have to move out of the monstrosity and try to find some place that will take 5 people without any money to pay for it.

          • Marsbars09

            I’m sure the foreclosure procedures and other means of confiscating anything of value has already begun.

  • Jennymckitty

    Has the BOP definitely said where she will be reporting? I think by now they had released details of where & when Apolllo needed to surrender.

    • Guardian

      This morning ABC news alluded to Danbury but the public won’t know for sure until she is on her way – unless the family says something and I doubt they will.

  • chacha1

    how many kids are cared for by one parent …PLENTY ….so boo freakin hoo for their 4 doorters who they never considered when committing the crimes

    • itsjustme

      The reason I feel badly for the girls is because I DO have empathy for any child who will lose a parent due to their own selfishly, bad choices. The damage done to those poor, innocent girls will last way past their immediate future. It’s the parents who gave them all a false sense of monetary riches all these years and it’s these poor kids who now will have their world as they know it turned upside down in so many ways that most kids in this country have never had and never will have to live through.

      • chacha1

        I respect your feelings for the doorters ….. some one wrote on another blog that the only person they feel bad for is that little 7 year old girl whose parents and siblings died in a plane crash and she had to walk in the cold for help, so I have empathy for that girl and many other hungry abused children out there …. after tomorrow I hope to never see those entitled spoiled nasty doorters or their ugly azzed parents

        • Rochelle Barozzi

          BOOM! This!

  • chacha1

    she should surrender tonight while they are sleeping….. but then the criminal can’t play her never ending pity card at her pity party

  • chacha1

    when her and Dina were in Atlantic City recently Dina scolded her for not flushing the toilet ewww what a skeeze, wonder how her cellmate will feel when Treape does her nasty business with that fat nasty ass and doesn’t flush the used stainless steel toilet bowl

  • ButterflyArtGuild

    I think I would tell my children so they don’t make the same mistakes.

    • MorningYawn

      It’s an excellent teaching moment…

  • Trippinhhard

    I’m expecting to read that 911 was called to the estate (lol) Teresa has done something to avoid going to jail..

    • Anne Green

      I totally agree with you!! Her final act of complete and utter desperation.

      • Trippinhhard

        Just hope she doesn’t do anymore harm to her daughters, they are innocent in all this mess their parents are in..

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Samra! Tre is going to go to prison with a bang. Believe that.

      • chacha1

        and will have to share a toilet ….LMAO !!!!!

      • Trippinhhard

        Hey Mars—I’m just think she will do something stupid to stall going to jail..

        • Marsbars09

          That’s what I mean when I say she’s going to prison with a “bang”. She’s got something up her sleeve to stall her incarceration.

    • I was thinking the exact same thing. Hopefully, it isn’t something of a suicide or something.

  • Marsbars09

    You know what, Tre and Joe should have had this conversation with their daughters soon after their sentencing. It is grossly unfair for Joe and Tre to lie to their girls about their circumstances.
    Since Joe and Tre are selfish a-holes, I doubt they will tell their daughters the truth. They probably were told about the manual, but knowing them it probably went over their heads.
    Tomorrow is going to be a very sad and traumatic day for all involved. 🙁

    • chacha1

      are they really going to try to convince everyone that Milania doesn’t know? Milania is probably getting a good dose of what she dishes out at school ….. this is NOT the end of the world for these dorrters, their mother will be home from “college” in 15 months, what about all the children whose parents are battling cancer ???? now that is where my sympathy lies.. not for those spoiled little brats

      • Debbie Willard

        I’m pretty sure Milania is running threw the house yelling “YOUR GOING TO JAIL BUTTHOLE” every chance she gets..i have seen time and time again when she hears Tre lying she corrects her..LOL..

        • DSS

          LMAO

  • Anne Green

    Stacy Slotnick, Esquire did a blog post here at AATT sometime back regarding Antisocial Personality Disorder (APD). She did a phenomenal job! Many years ago, I had (was forced) to write a paper for school on sociopathic behavior. Ultimately, I enjoyed doing the research. If anyone has any knowledge or has done even a little research on APD, you know….Teresa fits the bill. In reviewing my paper, the ONLY characteristic of APD that does not fit Teresa is a high IQ. Right down to sociopaths captivating their audience (TreHuggers), these people are spellbound worshippers and look at her as their Prophet. How many times have we heard a Hugger say “if you ever met her in person, you would like her….she is lovely and charming”. If a hugger only watched her show or followed her on Twitter, of course she would “appear” charming. They refuse to read the indictment, the plea deal and sentencing documents. Mind boggling!!
    Last night the Huggers were out of control on Twitter. I equate to playing a game of Whack-A-Mole.

    • chacha1

      the Huggars go and buy her crap and talk to her for 2 minutes and they think she is sooooo nice … hahahaha they have just been suckered into paying good money for her crap, ….. and on WWHL she tried to convince Andy that people just come up to her and say how nice she is and she said “why, what do you mean? and the people say you are so nice in person but so mean on TV … and the BS keeps dripping from her skank mouth

      • Marsbars09

        Tre’s worshippers don’t realize that she really thinks they are beneath her. Tre thinks she is superior to others and the rules don’t apply to her.

        • chacha1

          you are right !!!!

    • Guardian

      Missed the Twitter action last night – care to share a bit of it (whack-a-mole – too funny!)? When I was working on my Masters in psych, did a lot of papers on behavior and disorders – she easily slides into a lot of categories.

      • Anne Green

        Exactly!! Without some serious psychiatric intervention…..nothing will ever change for her or her children. She is mentally ill…..it in no way excuses her behavior. If nothing else, it helps me to understand her continued bizarre actions.

        • Guardian

          Yep – and, funny that WF had stated that before she took her on and then took her on anyway. She needs help and a lot of it over a long period of time I would say. People who are that manipulative can get a lot by the best of them so not just anyone will do. You’ll often spend the first year “chasing” them because they often see everything/one as a game. She’d be interesting that’s for sure – if you like migraines.

          • Anne Green

            I think WF met her match with Teresa. Initially, she looked at Teresa as being weak and thought her own manipulation of Teresa would work. She made Teresa promises….when she couldn’t deliver…Teresa imploded. WF jumped ship as soon as she saw the leak spring. (it appears to WF’s MO) She told the world that even with her expertise, she deemed Teresa as “unfixable”. Now WF’s is doing some backpedaling just to keep the door open I imagine. Two sociopaths working together is a recipe for disaster as we have seen.

          • Guardian

            She may well have seen a reflection! As you know from your studies and just plain common sense, just because someone says they are rehabilitated doesn’t always make it so. There are innate character traits that have to be re-directed and I think WF thinks hers are. However, reading her site and blog tells me there’s still a lot of spin and games going on. T is a lucky break for WF – she couldn’t buy the exposure.

          • Anne Green

            Total agree!!

          • Guardian

            Rehab sells as you know – and get my drift. As for measuring success and how successful one is when touting their outcomes, I look at it this way: 1. There are measurable results, outside of the claim or 2. The old adage that if you take an infinite number of monkeys with an infinite number of typewriters, sooner or later you’ll get a novel – which some will call success.

    • Marsbars09

      Any “worshipper” of Tre is crazy.

  • Bad Barbie

    People hate this lady but care so much of what she does. I don’t get it. Her problem how she tells her kids. It is going to happen and there ain’t shit she can do about it.

    • BeachSpin

      LMAO!! I don’t care a wit about Teresa, certainly not enough to hate her.. However, TONS of people have expressed concern about the children. It’s normal for people to want them cared for through this nightmare that Joe and Tre brought on their family.

    • itsjustme

      I have no feelings one way or another towards Tre and Joe. I don’t know them to have developed feelings one way or another. What I DO CARE ABOUT is how they have ripped off so many people that will never get their money back. I also feel very sorry for their girls who now have to live the rest of their lives knowing that their parents didn’t care enough about them to provide a loving home where they lived within their means. THAT IS WHAT I CARE ABOUT.

  • DSS

    Since the youngest dorter isnt paid for, cant the fertility clinic step in and repo her?
    Well prolly not but that would help 🙂

    • chacha1

      it would be nice if someone can get to Audriana before Milania kills her … Milania has been beating her up since she was an infant and it was shown on TV …. wonder how she got away with that and why did Andy let those criminals remain on the show

      • DSS

        Maybe send Milania to a less populated state for safety reasons? (not hers)

        • chacha1

          how about it !!!!

      • Marsbars09

        Yep!

      • twifan2

        Mommy thought it was cute.
        Andy wants the $$$.

    • Guardian

      Oh – my – gosh . . . repo her – LMBO.

    • Debbie Willard

      HAHA Great mind’s think alike i was just thinking that..how is Audrianna going to feel when she finds out she isn’t even paid for ..SMDH

      • Marsbars09

        God wiling I hope she never finds out. Her life is hard enough. :/

    • Jersey

      lol

    • cait

      She’d be a beggar to fit back in, especially with her shoes on !

    • Marsbars09

      :/

  • chacha1

    I wish I knew how to do the twitter thing

    • Guardian

      I don’t know either but probably for the best in my case.

    • Jennymckitty

      It’s really quite easy. Avoiding the crazies…not so much.

      • chacha1

        Thank you I was able to go and read what she is tweeting …. her use of the little gun does not concern me as she is so full of chit …. she is all about the boyfriend … she probably used the gun icon because Milania was nearby

        • Jennymckitty

          It’s actually quite common emoji that lots of people use. I don’t necessarily think it is a cry for help. However, I hope people are keeping a close eye on all the girls. They need all the support they can get.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Someone in CT just tweeted that he media are lined up in front of the prison already waiting for Teresa to arrive. So much for my hope for her to slip in quietly before they showed up.

    • twifan2

      You knew that was going to happen, WCF.
      Any news if there are some over at WV?

      • WestCoastFeed

        I just started checking twitter. I’ll update if I see anything.

        • twifan2

          Thanks WCF! 🙂

          I really appreciate your efforts!

    • Marsbars09

      OMG! Just as we thought, this is going to be a media circus when Tre reports to prison tomorrow.

      • itsjustme

        How could it not be. It’s been a circus since last march. Hence the reason I still have doubts about the raid. The media would have been all over it and yet none even reported it.

        • twifan2

          The media didn’t see any need to be camped out at her house at that time.
          Something brewing tho…
          We’ll have to just wait.

        • Birdie

          The raid would have been a complete surprise…that is the definition of a raid. The media would have no reason to be there.

          • itsjustme

            I know they may not have been there at the time of the raid. However, I am certain that mainstream media made many calls to find out if in fact there was any truth to the raid story. I’m guessing they couldn’t get any conformation from any of their sources so decided not to run the story. That’s just my theory. I’ve just seen too many times how media has gotten information from inside sources in the past and ran a story.

    • chacha1

      she probably alerted them for a price

    • Jennymckitty

      I really wonder if Bravo is there.

    • TGtP – Nene’s New Wig

      Are the Pap’s at both of the prison possibilities or just Danbury?

      • twifan2

        If they’re smart, they’ll cover BOTH places.

    • Lucy94

      Are they at Danbury?

      • twifan2

        Yes. Danbury, CT.

  • Jersey

    Does anyone know if Bravo started filming with her? I found articles saying they were but then others saying they were waiting until she returned. Bravo’s greedy, I can’t imagine them not thinking this is ratings gold.

    • Lucy94

      Oh, I believe they are! Someone tweeted yesterday that Teresa was spotted at Jacqueline’s house. Why would she go there on her last day(s) of freedom if she weren’t filming? Also, it has been posted there were camera crews at the ski resort with Tre and the twins. I’m sure Bravo has a permanent spot at the prison. They are all over this like white on rice. Ratings for Bravo = advertising revenue = $$$$. JMO.

  • chacha1

    so I figured out how to get to twitter and read a tweet Gia made about her boyfriend, trust me she is too focused on this boy and her GF’s

    Gia Giudice retweeted

    First Love™ @1stIove · Jan 2

    He’s annoying, he’s hilarious, he makes me yell, he drives me crazy, he’s out of his mind, and he’s everything I want.

    • Marsbars09

      OMG! Joe is going to kick his ass! LOL!

      • chacha1

        LOL Joe is too drunk to notice and getting ready to go to work at his night job at his GF’s house

        • Debbie Willard

          HAHAHAHA

        • BuckJohnson

          Thats exactly right, When Monday rolls around Teresa goes to prison and when Tuesday comes around Joe’s at his girlfriends house and Teresa knows it and that is one of the reasons why she is mad. Because she knows Joe is dumb, Joe doesn’t care. He’s out running around with another woman and then possibly getting her pregnant what can Teresa say then.

          • twifan2

            In Juicy’s own words, ‘FURGITBOUTIT!’

      • Joe don’t care, he’s drunk off his ass most of the time.

    • Anne Green

      Pregnant before sixteen!!!

    • BuckJohnson

      I think they have been such an embarrassment to Gia that she is cutting the cords early.

  • chacha1

    Have a great day, going to watch the NFL Playoffs

    • DSS

      Cant watch!!!! Have a good one!!!

    • twifan2

      Me too. Have it on the set now. 🙂
      Hope your team makes it, chacha1! 🙂

    • MorningYawn

      There is no one left to root for! My team didn’t make it, my husbands team didn’t make it, my best friends team didn’t make it. The great let down of 2015! HA! I think I will root for winner of Cincy/Indy. Watching it now and commenting! LOL!

  • Addie2U

    Hubs just came in the room, saw Teresa’s photo & said “she’s not gone yet?”. When I told him the gist of the article (& that I read (elsewhere) that Teresa told her 2 youngest she’s going off to school), he said “that’s pretty stupid, every time they go to visit or when she comes home, they’re going to see she’s just as stupid as before”! ☺☺

  • misstc

    Somehow I remember her turn in date to be the 4th, yet it’s tomorrow which is the 5th. Not telling the younger two is a dreadful mistake-these girls go to school & they will surely be teased about this sooner than later.

  • GG Walker

    Well a lot of mother’s and fathers is in Prison she will be a Prisoner and still have her job On RHONJ. Now let’s Talk Apollo I don’t hear nothing..Both of them did the crime.I don’t feel sorry for her and Joe lying Dirty Asses.

  • twifan2

    WOW! Countdown clock is FINAL hours now.
    No more days!

  • Guest

    Do any of you Know anything about this family other than what you’ve read in the press? Do you know a favorite color, or distant family members names, or a favorite movie of theirs, etc? Don’t make the mistake of thinking that embarrassing things could never happen to you. Usually when you judge, you are judged even more harshly. Have some compassion. Don’t kick when someone is down. Don’t glory in another persons misery. We are all children of a merciful God. One God. A forgiving God. How Proud would He be of you right now to see what you have written. lord help us all.

    • twifan2

      Thanks for taking time to post all our short comings! 🙂
      A less ‘Christian’ person would have just moved on. 😉

    • TartLemon

      Mus be one of those perspective thingies, huh? I have compassion for Teresa’s VICTIMS.

    • TJ Marcus

      Don’t give a shit. She has no remorse & has never accepted responsibility for her crimes. Blaming Lawyers, Her husband, her “Fame”, her employer for her getting in trouble. She is still on the hook for all 13 million, I hope during the next 15 months everything is taken & sold. I hope she has a very hard 15 months with many sleepless nights.

    • TartLemon

      Do you know anything about me, my background, my preferences?

      Well then, why are you judging me?

    • Birdie

      Huh? This blog was positive and productive, and focused on compassion for the innocent and helping them cope. This kind of embarrassment will NEVER happen to me, because I choose an honest life and don’t consider others less important than myself.

    • I’m not worried about God, he’ll have a special place for Teresa & Joe.
      Thou shall not steal, lie or be greedy.
      Had Teresa been remorseful & served a penance (maybe by paying the fertility clinic that brought her baby into the world or paid back small biz owner’s they flat out refused to pay, or did the quality work that insurance co’s paid them for from Sandy Hurricane victims), this family might have had a better chance at positive public opinion. This black mark will stain the Guidice name for generations & saddest part is, her kids don’t realize it yet.
      Kids are mean, there’s no doubt the littlest one’s Teresa lied to about her going to jail, will hear about this on the playground & that baby Audriana will have to bear the bullies that will claim “she’s not even paid for”.

      • Addie2U

        Amazing! I guess her bible states it’s perfectly fine to steal, lie, cheat, & be greedy. I got mine, so screw you all. Never read that in any bible I’ve come across. Must be a special edition!☺

    • Addie2U

      I’ll reserve my compassion for the sick & suffering & the millions of families that do it the right way. That go without / that struggle every day to put food on their rickety tables & tuck their children into bed wearing hand-me-down pj’s with threadbare sheets & blankets. That know the true meaning of life is not what you have & can impress others with, but what you have in your heart — morals, integrity, empathy, & love.

    • Flanagan

      Teresa Giudice has yet to apologize to those she swindled and stole from, or even acknowledge she did anything wrong. Teresa and Joe Giudice built a mansion, and lived a life of luxury funded by fraudulently obtained money. What they have done to their children is far worse than any punishment they could receive in prison. They have left their daughters with a legacy of having convicted felons for parents. And quite frankly, I don’t care about their favorite colors, relatives or anything else about them. What they did to the people they criminally defrauded, and what they have done to their children as a result of that deserves nothing but contempt. And yes, I feel very comfortable pointing the finger at them. I have lived a life of truth and honor, which was taught to me and my siblings by our parents, two of the most honest people who ever lived. We never had much in material things growing up, but the lessons our parents imparted on us was worth more than anything money could have bought. The ones who your thoughts should be directed toward are these 4 children, who were born to morally bankrupt criminals.

      • Brassy

        You spoke this straight to the point as I would have attempted myself. Every word you typed I was thinking,,. I raised my children within our means, They still grew up to be good men not owning every single expensive new toy out there.My biggest problem is the disrespect Teresa and Joe show towards their children, they knew this will destroy them, and the biggest crime of all is Teresa putting her 13 year old child out there to attempt to be the bread winner,, Actually the whole story when it comes to the children is heart wrenching..

        • Flanagan

          You and I, Brassy, would have jumped off the nearest cliff before doing anything that would have jeopardized our children. I raised my children as my parents raised me, and they are all married, successful and happy with their lives. Teresa’s mantra has been “My children are everything to me”, but how true is that, really? Surely, Teresa Giudice is not so thick headed that she never realized what she was doing could land her behind bars. Giving the appearance of having wealth and riches was MORE important to her than her children.

  • twifan2

    AND the countdown clock keeps ticking away! 😮

    • Flanagan

      I’m going to miss the countdown clock. Maybe one will go up counting off the days in prison.
