Broke House Husband! Joe Giudice May Have To Go On Welfare?

Friends close to Joe Giudice, real househusband to convicted felon and star of “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Teresa Giudice, are saying that “Joe is getting desperate” about the family’s financial situation.

A sources close to the situation is saying,

“He doesn’t have any money coming in and he doesn’t know how he is going to get any money.”

Just a suggestion, but since Joe knows construction, maybe he could pick up a shovel or a table saw. The couple owe millions and have so far been unable to sell their Towaco, New Jersey, mansion featured on the show.

“Teresa and Joe have been counting on selling the place and getting money that way, but they haven’t had any buyers.” The source is revealing, “They’re really worried that it could go into foreclosure.”

There are many who feel this couple deserves everything they get. They created this mess; it’s up to them to clean it up, and if it weren’t for their four daughters, most people wouldn’t care at all. But with Teresa in jail, her sources of income have dried up for the family.

“Without Teresa’s show money they’re not generating any income,” the source continued. “Everything was all smoke and mirrors.”

As their money problems increase, Joe is reportedly trying to find a solution.

“Joe knows that he has to start making money, and not on a small level, but a big level. He has a family to support and he has basically hit a brick wall with ideas. Things are really bad for the family right now.”

Whoa, hold on there. Isn’t making money on a “big level” part of the problem that got them into this place to begin with? If we’ve learning anything about watching the Giudice’s life story unfold in the court systems it’s that their “big” money making ideas have usually involved some type of fraud.

There are rumors that Teresa will write a tell-all book upon her release, but that won’t help Joe now. Daughter, Gia, may be on her way to a music career, but again, that won’t help Joe now. And Bravo hasn’t confirmed any future television deals covering Teresa’s release and Joe’s impending surrender. (And if RHONJ star Jim Marchese has his way, Teresa won’t be allowed back on the show at all.)

Tell us what you think. With the clock ticking down, what’s a guy like Joe Giudice, one who doesn’t like tabloids or reality television, to do?

    cry me a river, I have no sympathy whatsoever. How many people did they stiff with their big scams. At some point they won’t be able to pay the utility bills or put gas in the car and I imagine they will drain his mothers savings soon. I do not want my tax dollars going to support this bunch, last I knew they were still driving around in luxury vehicles.

  • Dave

    They will not get an ounce of sympathy from me.

    • Chloe

      None here either. They should have thought about that while they were busy scamming others.

  • italiano bambino

    Here in joe go apply for Food stamp cash aid and medicare. BETTER YET go sell all that shit you don’t need at home… BETTER YET go talk to your wife’s pal Nene moose leakes and get some ideas of how to do a FAB garage sale lol.

    • Hey Bam!! How are you, hon?

      • italiano bambino

        Im good n you?

        • I’m doing ok, battling a cold. Stuffy nose, etc but besides that I’m fine.

          • cait

            STUFFY NOSE ! Lucky Lass, mine is like a tap out of control !

          • Awww, poor Cait. Please get better soon. I’m suffering through it.

          • Marsbars09

            Here’s some of my homemade chicken soup made from love.
            From my heart to yours. I hope you feel better hon.

          • Awwwwww! 🙂 You’re so sweet. Thank you! ♥︎

    • Marsbars09

      Thank you! Now’s the time for Joe to sell Tre’s stuff and some of their daughter’s stuff on eBay. I bet he’d make a mint!

      • italiano bambino

        Hi mars this people had it coming

        Karma def knock at tre house with a vengeance

  • Joe & Tre hide money and are selective about what they spend it on. They don’t pay their mortgage or bills but can afford Gia’s cheerleading, voice lessons and studio sessions.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Doc! Wasn’t their stash cash taken by the “visitors” right before Christmas?

      • Hey Marsie! Not all of it. They have money buried someplace or in someone else’s name.

        • Susan Thorne Zavagli

          I agree

  • She Stinks!

    Waaah! Where are all the Tre Huggers with the cash? Stick the kids with other relatives or foster care and put him out on the street. He shouldn’t be able to get welfare, after all they have done. NO sympathy for this garbage!

    • Marsbars09

      Great point Stinks! How come the die hard Tre huggers aren’t kicking in money to provide for Joe and the kids?

  • misstc

    Joe Fraudice BETTER not be asking the taxpayers for food stamps or welfare money. Tough chit, dig a ditch, mow a lawn, shovel snow. A REAL man will do whatever it takes to put food on the table. BTW, he has money for booze, doesn’t he? Tough titties Joe! No pity slob!

    • Birdie

      LOVE the ‘real man’ definition…EXACTLY right!!

    • Marsbars09

      LMAO! Tell it like it is Misstc! I just posted a comment wondering if Joe is eligible for unemployment benefits. If not, he needs to apply for public assistance to take care of his girls.
      He has the money to buy booze. LMAO!

  • Chloe

    They will have to turn to welfare next. Joe is unemployable. He’s ripped off too many people in New Jersey. His name is trash in the business. No one will give him work.

    • cait

      Caroline said it in Ser 4, Joe would live in a box if he wasn’t being pushed by the Tree, to provide all the fancy stuff ! Sorry, I’m bit of a Joe-Hugger !

      • Chloe

        I can’t stand any of them. They’re both thieving lowlifes paying for their crimes now. Let them go live in Caroline’s basement. I’m sure she’ll take them in.

        • DoneWithBravo

          Let’s not forget that her husband LIED to the State of NJ, stating his primary address. They’re scum too.

      • Norrth

        I’m not a joe-hugger, but I believe that about him. He would probably happily live the life his father and brother were living. I think he just wanted enough money in his pockets to pay his bills and has a wife who kept telling him they needed more (if that slip, on WWHL, about her spending on her wardrobe claiming she had to wear a new outfit each scene, or some such). He bragged about how little he paid for his clothes. She seemed determined to always be in designer clothes.

        • cait

          Thanks Norrth, I think he’s a sad sack like Apollo !

        • JerseyGirl830

          But the FAT SCUM managed to buy himself 3 Rolex watches and a state of the art “MAN CAVE” in that Guilded tomb they live in. Pleeeeeesssssseeee it’s about time all this is starting to BITE them in the A$$ believe me this is just the beginning, the worst is yet to come for them.

      • Sadie Marie

        Ewwww…

    • She Stinks!

      Exactly. And since he’s a convicted felon, he couldn’t get a job at a grocery store, Home Depot, or anyplace!

      • Birdie

        I have a relative who is a felon…obviously it varies state to state…but where I live there are still quite a few businesses who will give a felon a job…minimum wage type thing, but when I looked it up, I was shocked at how many there were.

      • Chloe

        Especially since he’s convicted for stealing. And lets not forget he defrauded Hurricane Sandy victims out of their insurance money. He did shoddy repairs, got paid and ran.

      • Marsbars09

        Oh yeah! That’s right! The only work he could probably procure would be “under the table” type work.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Chloe! I just posted a comment that the family will most likely have to turn to public assistance.

  • Birdie

    Joe is stumped at how to make money honestly…he needs to go flip burgers if he has to.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Where is all that rental income?

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      in the feds pocket..garnished

  • colleen

    NOW you worry, you stupid, lazy felon? I can only hope the Court re- examines the Giudice’s disregard for the Law and adds time and more monetary fines

  • TartLemon

    But but but Teresa always said what a GOOD provider Juicy was.

  • TartLemon

    Wasn’t Gia supposed to be able to support them in luxury while Mom and Dad were in prison? I really feel sorry for a child who presumes it is her responsibility and the adults allow her to believe it.

    • WestCoastFeed

      She’s busy rehearsing for an episode in their film that will feature a trip to LA. Who is paying for the trip? And she is trying to decide what high school to chose. Is she considering a private school? More money questions.

      • Debbie Willard

        What Film is she doing??? what did i miss?? LOL

  • WestCoastFeed

    OT–Tonight PBS is running the 2nd half of Italians in America. This features 2nd generation Italian Immigrants. The first installment last week was fascination.

    • That sounds interesting. I will check my local listings.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi WCF. I saw it too. There was so much I didn’t know about the history of Italians in America.
      Are you familiar with the North Beach area of San Francisco? Is it considered “Little Italy” of the Bay Area?

      • Poo

        Hey Mars, when I lived in CA that was Hippie land. Tells you how many years have gone by.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I love North Beach. Yes, it is a very Italian area.

    • Fritz the. At

      I see what’s on tonight but am not seeing part 1 repeats. Is the series 2 hours or longer?

  • roxie

    aand joe has learned nothing (can’t speak for teresa behind bars). he needs to make $ on a “big level?” get over yourself and be humbled by your past ways. start small even if at minimum wage.sell house at a loss, it’s shocking they’re still even in there. live where you have to. my money thought is he’ll do something shady and get caught yet again.

  • TartLemon

    Does the faux manse still have utilities? Who’s paying those bills? Insurance? Taxes? Food? Vehicle leases? General upkeep? Mortgage?

    • JerseyGirl830

      Thank You TartLemon That is exactly what I want to know and I heard the mortgage alone is over $10,000 a month…WTF??????

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      I ask the same…how is he paying bills…..taxes and mortgage he can get away with til they throw him out but food and other things you need money…….he probably borrowed from a illecite lender

    • Atlanta Girl

      Maybe he has a GoFundMe account?

  • A Reader

    Here’s a tip Joe. Move out of the gaudy mansion you can’t afford and never could.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Doesn’t he have a court date soon to learn about his driver’s license status?

    • I believe he goes back to court in March.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Thanks,doc. The judge will probably allow him to drive up until Teresa gets released so he can cart the girls to school and their extra-curricular activities. And, of course, to see his bimbos.

        • You’re welcome and lmao @ the bimbo comment. Btw, if the judge allows him to do that, people should protest. That’s unfair accommodations to a convicted felon. The court would NEVER make those accommodations to an average citizen in the same circumstance.

        • Susan Thorne Zavagli

          He’ll lose his license…the court doesn’t care about driving his kids around….what’s wrong with a schoolbus…….

  • Marsbars09

    Does Joe qualify for unemployment? I wonder if he’s still hirable as a construction worker, brick layer, contractor, etc.?
    I’m not surprised something like this would happen. Now Joe is faced with going on public assistance to support his family. I bet the family is one step away from homelessness.

  • Fritz the. At

    Still living in their funeral parlor because they keep it overpriced to squat as long as possible. Before teresa left for college, they were still leasing expensive cars, she was wearing designer duds, she was getting her hair and forehead and makeup done, she had a personal trainer. There was no downsizing at all. I am sure they are working on their next scam in order to keep all their ill gotten gains without paying for them. I notice the articles about teresa are drying up and she is having a hard time selling her dreck to the tabloids. People are losing interest. By the time she get out it will be teresa who?

    • RonnieIsBack

      And spending thousands on the video for Gia…

  • WestCoastFeed

    Breaking news–Guilty in the sniper trial. Judge gives him life without parole.

    • Thank the Lord!!! That story touched me deeply and really hit close to home.

    • RonnieIsBack

      AMEN!

  • Orlando Chan

    The chickens have come home to roost.

  • DoneWithBravo

    It’s pretty easy: SCALE.DOWN.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Morons. Move into a small house and let the big one go to foreclosure if you can’t sell it. At least your monthly payments will be tiny vs. the McManse. Stop thinking on a big level. Think small. Really small! Stop your daughters’ frivilous activities/clothes/lifestyle and get real! It’s about time.

    • Atlanta Girl

      Ahhh, but they are reality starz, they don’t work. They get paid for existing. It is too much “work” maintaining their “brand” than actually doing stuff. And they have to live so luxuriously bc it is part of their image. (eyeroll) It goes to their heads and sucks out any sort of common sense they had.

  • TartLemon

    Move to that apartment above the pizzeria. The girls can grow up learning a useful Family business and that you have to actually WORK for what you get.

    WestCoastFeed, earlier you posted Gia was rehearsing for a film. What film? Is it already sold? What’s it about? I still maintain with all social media Gia has had, if there was any marketable talent, a legit producer/promoter would have already put her under contract.

    • WestCoastFeed

      It’s the pilot for her girl trio. For their reality show about their search for success in the music world.

      • TJ Marcus

        The thing is Gia can’t sing. As for the film crew, I believe they were paid to follow them and create “buzz”. If they were talented they could try out for AGT. I believe this year it is in NY/NJ area. Would cost the family’s no money & get tons of exposure. Again this is if Gia has talent.

    • fred

      there are a lot of answers, they just don’t want to do them

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    rent the palace out and downscale……

    • cait

      That worked out well for Joey and Mel !

  • honeybunny

    Someone, anyone, (Stacy are you there?) Please tell me how the are still living in that house? Obviously they are not paying a mortgage, but with a house that size how can they even afford the utility bills. If they are paying the bills (unless bravo is), why not downsize to a decent home or condo. I really hope they lose the house before she is released from prison.

    • mickey2942

      Takes a long time to throw someone out for mortgage default. Joe will stall and stall.

  • RonnieIsBack

    LOL if Joe gets a bridge card….

  • Lucy94

    WTH? She’s only been gone 1 1/2 months! Things are not going to get better and they will be paying for their fraud the rest of their lives. I’ve said all along that house will be long gone by the time Tree gets out. No education, convicted felon, shoddy workmanship. Did I leave anything out?

  • fatstinkycat

    All Joe needs to do is call his Mom to get a bag of the cash he stashed with her!

    • fred

      they weren’t smart enough,they blew it alllllllll

  • fred

    ILL GIVE HIM A JOB 12$ hour on the books(cant wait to garnish them wages)

  • Sunfood

    He could become a Prostitution…whore?

    • ldeimler

      hahaha

  • DSS

    I used to think Tre got off real light but after this Lindsey Lohan being on probation since she was 11 and allowed to do community service where ever she chooses I am not so sure.

  • Angela Petrillo

    when they got busted they continued to live way above their means,and as far as Teresa’s italian cooking and cook books those recipes are the same as every other Italians mom and grandmothers recipes there isn’t anything kiss your fingers and saying bella about her cook books.I grew up eating all those foods,they did’t sell much of their belongings(were probally all still being paid off their charge cards. I don’t think tre or joe got enough time and tre is not on the same hollywood actress level as L.Lohan. wouldn’t know about any of these women if not for the housewives reality shows on Bravo.that is my feeling on the whole bull sh-t mess. Is her brother still raking in the dough???

  • requiempoet

    It’s a good thing he hasn’t done anything crazy. I worry about his mental status.

  • mickey2942

    Umm, can’t he go get a job? Maybe two or three jobs. And the kids, no more parties, music videos. ..reality hits hard…Gia can watch her sisters while Joe works…at the local 7-11.
