Joe Giudice’s Surrender Date Revealed & Did Teresa Receive Special Jail House Treatment?

Former Bravo princess, Teresa Giudice, is safely behind bars, and to all of her fans out there, December cannot come soon enough. The New Jersey housewife has begun her 15-month sentence at a federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, and her husband Joe expected to serve directly after she is released. Many are wondering exactly how the timing of their address swap will fall out. According to Teresa’s new air horn attorney, James Leonard Jr., unless something unexpected happens, December of this year and March of 2016 are going to be pivotal months for the Giudice clan. He clarified the details in an interview with E! News, explaining,

“Typically, you have to do 85 percent of that sentence, so that calculation comes out to a little under 13 months, he revealed. “Our projections are that if nothing changes with her sentence she should be released sometime in early December.”

Joe Giudice is expected to report in March of 2016.  If Teresa keeps her nose clean, that means a few months of together time, before the family is splintered again.  Leonard also revealed Joe’s thoughts on the day of his wife’s surrender, as well as a timing clarification about the next felon named Giudice, who will need some change of address cards.

“He told me that obviously it was a difficult day but that everybody was doing OK. He’s a strong man, very strong family man, and a good father.” He added, “There will certainly be an overlap where they will be together, which will be taxing on him and the girls.”

Leonard also mentioned that Joe received “some sort of correspondence” from “someone last night” with a message that “was basically that she was doing fine.” This certainly sounds like Joe was somehow receiving info from the inside, reassuring him of his wife’s well-being. This occurred during her FIRST night behind bars, and before any communication between she and her family had been allowed. WHO is giving him this info that no other first night inmate is allowed to communicate to the outside? Leonard rushed to change the subject, seemingly darting any further questioning to elaborate on his blurt. Is Teresa Giudice already scoring special treatment…and if so by whom?

    This attorney’s math is as bad as his legal skills. 13 months from January 5 is NOT early December. Just a newsflash for the biggest blabbermouth of a famewhoring attorney. What a creep.

    I guess his payment is all this free press–although only a moron would take on TG–she’s poison and everyone who has anything to do with her walks away feeling abused and tainted.

    Great story as usual, BS. Great writing.

    • MorningYawn

      Poison… Runs in the family! Lol! But seriously, I agree, the attorney is a moron who needs a chat about how many months there are in a year. He is vile, and not just to look at.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        He’s been on every news site and is talking to every newspaper in the world. Does he not get that people are more reviled by this self-absorbed bitch and that he’s doing her a lot of harm–people are SO sick of her “I’m just an ignorant victim” act. BLECH!

        • MorningYawn

          Blech x 100! We are reviled by her and him, as he shouts from the rooftops, keeping the kids in the spotlight when they need to be able to adjust to this new life. Things are only going to get harder for that family and that bag o wind is not helping only hurting!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I agree, MY! He IS making it worse for her. People are so sick of this tired old criminal hag. No one feels sorry for her and her “pity me” attitude and hiding behind her daughters whom she never ONCE thought of while she was committing her crimes (not mistakes–they are CRIMES).

            But someone is going to have to represent her on the perjury charges. The problem is that this bozo will probably get her even more time. LOL. I bet he’s the kind of attorney that judges just hate.

          • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

            You said that with the power and truth it warrants!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Thank you!

        • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

          This has got to be the way he gets his payment for his questionable “expertise”.
          He probably has to keep (SMDH) her freakin’ name out there in the public mind in order to try to cash in on the crappy Giudice name.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I’m sure you’re right. I’m also sure it will backfire on her (and him). Neither realize just how much they are despised (the Giudices). Yes, there are a few very vocal “super fans” (one sent her money!!!) but they all ride the short bus.

    • HAHAHA! He screwed up the math on national TV. I predict she’ll get into a fight delaying her early release. *Fingers crossed*

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        LOL! I already predicted that on ROL when they said she’d be getting early release. Ha! Things are VERY TENSE in prison. No way will she be able to keep that temper in check for 13 months. No freaking way!

        • LOL–Yup! There’s always some drug addict bad ass looking to test a faux celebrity for the heck of it.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Exactly. Someone will want to make a name for herself. Some will kiss T’s ass when she’s in there–but an equal # (or more) will want to see her go down BAD.

    • Birdie

      According to his ‘projections’…I’m glad he thought so long and hard about it. He needs to use his fingers.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I know, right Birdie? January = 1, February = 2, etc.

        What a moron.

      • And toes.

  • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

    For as much as I like denigrating these convicted fools, I actually hope that the coverage on them dries up relatively soon.
    They deserve to be relegated to the back pages of any media coverage now.
    Except…I’d really like to follow the selling or lack thereof on the various Real Estate (RE) property’s they have on the market. Because I’d like to know how much the bank(s) lose on these two grifters and who the poor schlubbs are that are willing to purchase houses that are likely to be razed and then rebuilt.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      ITA! It was fun while she was getting sentenced and watching her squirm toward her enter date. Now I just want them all to go away.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      Me too. I really have nothing to add anymore in regards to them.

      • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

        You know something Rochelle, if I actually thought, for a New York minute, that these two convicted morons would actually pay back all (or any) of those people whom they cheated out of any money, whatsoever, I’d argue for wanting them to be successful. But you and the rest of us know, full well, that these dirty ass-wipes have absolutely no intentions, at all, to do the right thing and earn money to pay back any money, to those they shafted!

        So based on the ugly opinion, I have for both of them, I don’t wish for either of their “stays” in prison to be comfortable by any means! If they can’t do the right thing by those whom them have “taken to the cleaners” then they deserve to be treated poorly, period!

        • Rochelle Barozzi

          I am right there with you!

          • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

            Thanks for your commenting support.

  • TartLemon

    Who taught math to this guy? 13 months from 05Jan2015 is in Feb2015.

    • Raine Woman

      Tart, he’s obviously using Giudice math. 🙂

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Yes, I called him out on his brilliant math skills also. We already know he’s a douche of an attorney but he also appears to be a real moron.

      • Lucy94

        You got that right! Didn’t someone post on here that her release date is posted on some BOP site? I’m sorry, I don’t remember the details, I have to work during the day. You know, so I can pay my taxes and live an honest life.

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Well Lucy, at least you’re not in the pokey like the forehead-challenged chimp. There’s something to be said for paying taxes and living an honest life. 🙂

          • Lucy94

            IKR? I live in a Chicago suburb and have a job I love in the City. The commute is not easy on a good day, but today was BRUTAL! -20 wind chill. But I do what I have to do. That’s why I have no tolerance for people like Teresa and Joe. I’m not sure yet where they got their mindset that they deserve to live a life they didn’t earn.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I’m with you on that. I have worked my butt off to have what I have and so has my husband. He started his own business and works SO hard (as do I–even though you might not think so because I am here a lot). But I’ll disappear again pretty soon when I am enmeshed in a new project. Plus, I have never left a bill unpaid–and I had many lean years when I was a struggling writer. So did my husband. And that these fools just decided to grab whatever luxury freebies they had no right to–well, it chaps my hide.

            Good for you for doing it the right way, though, Lucy–you and I are doing it the right way. Plus, we can look at our reflections in the mirror without feeling repelled. That’s something Teresa will never know unless she has a personality transplant. It’s her sense of entitlement and ZERO remorse that really burns me. I think it was the Hurricane Sandy victim’s rip-offs that sealed that door for me forever. She can go to church before she heads off to the Pokey but that doesn’t make her a Christian. True Christians walk the walk. They don’t just spout off about it.

            Can’t stand these two crooks!

      • Atomicbetty1000

        I bet he gets his billing correct.

  • Birdie

    WHO is checking on Teresa in the Big House??

  • So Joe was told by someone in the prison about Tre’s well-being before she was allowed phone calls home….hmmmmm!!

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Teresa can buy friendships in prison. “If youse calls my JOOSEY, I will buy youse some of that hummus thingys that youse likes”

      That’s my guess.

    • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

      Is anybody surprised that Joe Giudice has connections with some of the fine upstanding folks who are in that or any other prison?

  • Bonita Gee

    Yeah he probably meant a release date of February of 2016 if she does 13 months………….

    • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

      Do you really think so…he looks pretty greasy to me!

  • disqus_jpuxh67QSR

    The attorney looks like Danielle Staubs boyfriend that had sex with her in Teresa’s shore house.

    • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

      Well, they both look awfully sleazy, so on that aspect of similarity…I agree with you.

  • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

    I wonder if anybody “borrowed” a meeting hall, got all of the people these jerks owe money to together, and flat out told them all that there is about as much likelyhood as a snowballs chance in hell, to get any pay back from the Giudices for the money they stole from all of them.
    Those two Convicted Felons are not only monetarily bankrupt, they are morally bankrupt as well on so many different levels of human existence!

  • cait

    He looks like a “Fat-Faced-Flatulent-Fecker” who would sell his Granny for a ciggie !

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      LOL!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    This is a quote from James Leonard that ran in People Magazine, about how soon she would be able to make phone calls:

    “They talked about starting her commissary account. They told her she would be able to make her first phone call within 24 hours once they had her account set up. They said they were going to make it possible for her to meet with her immediate family this weekend. So she was very happy with that. There weren’t going to be any delays with that stuff,” says Leonard.

    Perhaps they were able to process her quickly.

    • So why didn’t the lawyer simply say, Joe spoke to Teresa? The lawyer said, Joe learned through some sort of “correspondence.” Joe may have spoke Tre alright, through a contraband cellphone. LMAO!

      • JerseyGirl830

        This lawyer is an A-HOLE, what a Duche. He wants to sound so important thru this it’s sickening. I never heard an Attorney give so much information. He doing this so he can continue to get notoriety. He’s an IDIOT like her. Who knows maybe when BARNEY Rubble goes in to do his time Tre & the pills bury dough man will hook upon.

        • LMAO!! Reading your comment, I almost spit out my water. Spot on. I’ve NEVER seen a reputable attorney blab so much. He’s talking to EVERY major media outlet. Geez! Can you say F A M E W H O R E!!!

    • Birdie

      Didn’t this site already do a story on that People interview? If Joe has already begun referring to speaking to Tre as ‘some sort of correspondence’, the romance most DEFINITELY is dead. SAD! )0:

      • How long before Juicy’s side piece starts sleeping in Tre’s bed? LMAO!!!

        • Birdie

          After the required week long mourning period.

        • MorningYawn

          {{{ Shudder }}}

  • She Stinks!

    Every time I see an article about the felons, I just experience joy knowing that the admitted convicted felon Tre is behind bars serving her time for her crimes. Should it have been more? Yes! Should she have to clean toilets with a toothbrush? Yes! If she gets a beat down in prison, will I laugh? Yes!

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      I think I love you. You are as blunt as I am!!!

      • I LIVE for “She Stinks” comments. LOL!

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          ITA–they are always so awesome and *right to the point!* Which you know I have to adore.

          • Like yours!!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            LOL. No one has ever accused me of being a shrinking violet, doc! 🙂

          • She Stinks!

            Aww, thanks everybody. I enjoy your comments as well. Many times, I don’t even have to comment, you say it for me. Great minds think alike!

  • CatsMeow

    Wait! According to my math calculations, Jan 2015 to Feb 2016 IS 13 months, not Jan 2015 to Dec 2015. lol

    • Sunny

      I’m shaking my head and laughing at the same time at Attorney Leonard’s miscalculations on Teresa’s release month. He probably didn’t want to publicly count on his fingers, and that threw him off 😉

      • CatsMeow

        What a huge client he’s taken on.

  • MorningYawn

    OT: my friend (from north jersey, lol) went to Pump last night. She said the place was absolutely gorgeous and the food was good, not great. Pretty cool!!

    • Pump as in Lisa’s joint in Cali?

      • MorningYawn

        Yes. She was there last night. I was peppering her with questions. Fan girl? lol. At least she is one of my besties so I hope she didn’t judge.

        • Oh that’s awesome!! Spill the tea!!

          • MorningYawn

            Since you asked…. 😉

            Her group was considering sitting at two diff tables. They chose one and damn if Lisa Rinna and Harry didn’t come sit right next to the table they didn’t choose. Shortly after, in strolls LVP and Ken, Eileen and Vinny. They were not filming but she said they were discussing upcoming episodes. Don’t know how she knows – I was asking most of the questions so I didn’t want to seem too crazy.

            So that said, the women who were there says a lot. Is this how the chips fall? No Kyle? Or could she just not make it. Not too juicy but fun!

          • That’s an awesome fan sighting experience!! I’m sure she snapped some cool pics.

          • MorningYawn

            It IS cool! I’m (reality tv) star struck from here. I bet they were dripping fabulousness.

            If she did take pics she didn’t mention on fb or post. Could go either way – took pics or didn’t. My guess would be didn’t. I will send her a note about it and check back in. She’s flying back home right now.

            Suess, have you heard from Nan? Miss her. If you talk to her please say hi from me! Hope you are well.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      I was to Villa Blanca and it was not all that good. I mean, it was decent but it was very high-priced–beautifully decorated but the food was very mediocre. I have also been to Sur but only for drinks. Haven’t been to PUMP but I wanted to when we were in L.A. in Oct. Hubs didn’t want any part of it because he LOATHES my obsession with the HW’s–LOL.

      At Sur, we didn’t have a reservation and they had no seats except at the bar. We sat at the bar and just had a cocktail (even remember what I had–it was a Kir Royale). They are *good* restaurants from what I can tell but I could take you to a FAR tastier meal in a low-rent venue in San Francisco. My favorite restaurant in SF is a dive called House of Nanking–but the FOOD–OMG–to die for. The ratings in Zagat for that place are like a 28 for food and a 10 for ambiance.

      • MorningYawn

        I had heard VB was good not great, maybe from reading your posts. What kind of champagne in kit royals. I’ve never had one of those.

        Your House if NAnking has my mouth watering! If I ever get back to SF, I am there!

        On another note, my friends and I are going to head to Kevin Gillespe’s (top chef) restaurant as soon as we can get in. They are closed til 1/13. Just read on yahoo it’s one of Americas “essential” restaurants. Sent the girls that article and they were on it. We will see if we invite the husbands, lol!

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          You know, I have no idea what champagne it was! This was quite a while ago and hubs usually does the ordering. We likely went with the house champagne as it is watered down by the Creme de Cassis.

          Oh, I love to go to up and coming restaurants! I would love to go to Kevin’s place–I am sure he is a phenomenal chef. I really love to cook and I do love cooking shows. I have to work out hard every day to balance out my foodie love! 🙂

          Oh and House of Nan King (I believe I had it incorrect before)–just to die for. It’s a VERY clean, very modest restaurant in San Fran’s N. Beach area. If you ever get a chance to go, you will love it. inexpensive too. It’s a great lunch spot. Ask Peter (the owner) to just fix you a few dishes (he loves that). You get the BEST of the best doing it that way!

          • MorningYawn

            Great advice for my next trip to SF! Sooner rather than later I hope!

            We tried to go to Kevin Gillespies last restaurant. We had to book so far in advance that 3 of 4 of us had to cancel. My frind and her hub went and tried the tasting menu. Said it was a must do!! But the. He left.

            My one group if friends and I try to do a foodie restaurant once per quarter. We’ve fallen off our schedule but hope to get back to it with this… Whenever we get in! I will let you know how it goes!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I will definitely keep the booking in advance in mind if we do get to Kevin Gillespies. My husband travels so much and I usually travel with him since I am lucky enough to work from home (if I didn’t, I’d never see him!) Wow–three months in advance rivals the French Laundry in Napa! That was an amazing meal–but then meals like that aren’t really just “dinner.” They are experiences for the ages. More than dinner–the entire experience is just so amazing. Not that we do it all that often but when we do, we enjoy! 🙂

  • Sherri

    This ” lawyer” is the Saul of Breaking Bad. How do you think the Gorga’s have been been able to fly below the radar?!?. I really hope the Feds are keeping up with what’s going on.

    • cait

      The Gorgas used this Mutt for Bravo contracts, NOT the “Valentine’s Day Massacre” !

  • cait

    The correspondence was probably one of those “kites” you see on prison docs, that they hide up their ass when the warders are around ! YEUK !

  • TartLemon

    Is Teresa gonna sue this new lawyer for not being able to count even though she has enough fingers and toes to count? HE LIED TO HER.

    BTW, what’s the status of her lawsuit against the other attorneys?

    • I smell a lawsuit coming for this new lawyer, why not, she’s sued the other lawyer. No update on the Kridel lawsuit. No response filed yet.

      • Raine Woman

        Hi Doc! I saw a statement he made somewhere (and do NOT quote me as I have no $$$ for a law$uit) saying he did everything correctly and he would have appreciated a Thank You instead of a lawsuit. It was brilliant. I’ll try to find it…

        • Harleygirl0685

          I saw that too! I’ll look also!

      • Harleygirl0685

        Hiya Doc! How the heck you doing? Happy Nee Year!

  • disqus_jpuxh67QSR

    I came across an old blog called On Common Ground from April 2008 when following a link from an old comment about the series. Holy cow, what a trip. It started out with commenrs from people in Franklin Lake and Towaco who had witnessed filming. An anonomous post that was Melissa dissing one of the housewives (Teresa) started a blolgging war that I recognized Jacquline, Caroline, Ashley and Lauren Manzo! someone dissed the Brownstone and a bunch of Bullies who said they worked for the Brownstone got on and threatened anyone saying anything bad about it. Boy were some things said that so turned out to be true about Teresa..what a trip to read since all of these people ended up filming together!

    • disqus_jpuxh67QSR

      Melissa spills some real dirt about Teresa..Caroline figures out its Melissa and tells her she is going to start a family war if they find out she is spilling family dirt on a blog

      • Anne Green

        I was reading some of that blog too!! Interesting that some posters were able to predict from 2008 to present date. What I took away from it is this:
        1) Teresa was widely known for living beyond her means; pimping out her children to talent agencies and her difficulty at having an intellectually stimulating conversation.
        2) Many wanted the show to be about the NJ husbands as they were more interesting due to their widely known and accepted philandering behavior.
        3) The Manzo’s struggle with weigh issues and Caroline was obsessed with her daughters obesity.
        4) Many wondered why do this type of show when all 5 cast members have such skeletons in their closets.
        Interesting read. I wonder where those posters are now?

    • Cindy

      Where can I find these old blogs?? Should be interesting reading.. lol Thanks

  • italiano bambino

    Teresa giudice is getting out when MILANIA wants her to get out…

  • TJ Marcus

    Not enough time!!!! I can only hope the Judge puts a stop to her early release.

  • Cindy

    Does this Lawyer know MATH???? Federal Prison usually gives Early Release at 85% and she went in when Like Jan 5? Then he says like 13 Months so that should let her out in EARLY DECEMBER!!!! How is that either 85% OR 13 Months…. I just don’t get it, I’d be scared if he was watching out for me and my best interest…. SMH
