The Fraud Fallout Continues: Gia Giudice Forced To Play Mom While Teresa Giudice Serves Prison Sentence

Posted on Apr 10 2015 - 11:20am by Editor

Gia Giudice, daughter of Teresa and Joe Giudice, has a lot of pressure on her young and fragile shoulders. Her mom is serving time in prison, and her dad is expected to head to the pokey to serve his prison time after Mommy comes home. This leaves the “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” 14-year old plunked in a position with much more responsibility than your average teenager.

A new report suggests that Gia Giudice is being forced to mature much faster. Her dad, Joe Giudice, is supposedly playing Mr. Mom, taking care of his four daughters, while his felon better half serves her time behind bars. Gia is purportedly filling in the mommy gap, and is helping out with the household duties. In addition to all of the stress of household responsibilities, Gia is nurturing a budding music career with her girl group 3KT, and sitting for interviews. Joe was recently stripped of his driving privileges for two years, surely adding a whole new dimension of family stress. A source tells Life & Style magazine,

“She’s just growing up way too fast,” said the source. “It’s way too much to ask a 14-year-old to bear.” Adding, “She’s balancing her home responsibilities with her fledgling music career with the group girl 3KT, and doing media appearances and interviews.”

It’s clear that the workload and accelerated maturity is getting to the young teen, and last month Gia tweeted what appears to be a cry for help, “I need a break from all this…a new beginning,” presumably in response to family pressures.

Gia Giudice RHONJ

No child should have to “assume a parental role,” at such a young age, and be burdened with adult issues, such as  the family’s bottomless pit of financial ruin. Her parents have a massive $13.4 million debt, and according to Life & Style Magazine, the family is “demanding up to five figures for Gia interviews.”

Naturally, the mounting family stress has taken a toll on the young lady’s school performance, and her grades are “slipping in school,” the report claimed.  Teresa’s last request was that her daughters would be taken care of, not allegedly shoved into adulthood.  The fraud fallout continues.

    Didn’t we all predict this? Sadly, her drunkard father is too busy boozing it up and looks for HOs on the stroll, or the pole. He was so drunk he thought Tre was one of his new HOs:

      UGH! EEEWWWW!
      They’re both so clASSy!

      • T’s Martini Lounge

        I knew how much you’d love that! That’s Juicy’s move at ‘da club’. LOL

        • twifan2

          I saw how he wasn’t ‘looking’ at Tre’s face! 😀
          Thanks T’s martini Lounge! Made my Friday! 😉

    • Good Lord….Nooooo!!!!!

    • Guardian

      My eyes!!!!!! There goes lunch.

    • Marsbars09

      Yes. And now that his driving privileges have been taken away his attitude and behavior will only worsen.

  • twifan2

    Gia really needs to concentrate on school. A good education is something she can fall back on! That ‘entertainment’ career, not so much. :/

    • MidwestMiddie

      True but Gia appears to take advice and make-up tips from her Felon Mom.

  • WestCoastFeed

    She has been responsible for helping with Audriana in particular since she was born. But the other two may resent their bossy big sister ordering them around.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Chances are their sisterly dynamics weren’t that much different
      when Teresa was around. These kids were left to their own devices
      except when the Bravo cameras were around.
      BTW -sisters usually grow up to respect and love each
      other and laugh over their “disagreements” from childhood.
      : )

      • WestCoastFeed

        My mother loved her bossy big sister but her bossy big sister never stopped telling how to live her life

        • MidwestMiddie

          Yikes!!

          • WestCoastFeed

            And I love my oldest daughter, but she frequently bosses me just as though she were my older sister.

          • I’m sure she’s as smart and assertive as her mama! 🙂

          • MidwestMiddie

            Really?
            Hmmm – that can’t be comfortable.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I just chuckle. All children move into the role of being the parent of their elderly parents. I did with my mother. My daughter is doing it with me. It is just the normal evolution of family dynamics.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Chuckling is good.
            : )

      • TartLemon

        Remember when they had to stop Milania from tossing her baby sister over the banister? They all laughed.

      • Hahaha! Milania is the real boss of the family.

  • MidwestMiddie

    Since we’re led to believe this “Source” has close ties to the family, where has this
    person been for the past several years?
    None of this is “new news” nor thoughtful observations since all these issues have
    been discussed and written about before now.

  • teresa darienzo

    I can’t believe that this criminal is “demanding” large sums of money for anything. I guess stealing large sums of money didn’t work out so well for them so now it’s just demand. These people are disgusting in their greed.

  • TartLemon

    Just wait until Teresa comes home and tries to get the 15 YO Gia to relinquish authority.

    • twifan2

      I think Gia will gladly relinquish, so she can pursue her singing career.
      BUT whats to say Tre will be supervising the girls that much? She has to hustle for lucrative job$ & juggle that pesky 2 yrs probation!

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Twi! I think the three youngest girls will be in much worse shape once Tre is released. I doubt Tre will ever be a mother figure to them again (not that she ever was one imo) because like you stated Tre is going to be pursing that almighty dollar at the expense of her daughters’ well-being.

    • I think Teresa loss authority over Gia long ago. Tre was too busy hustling and chasing every buck to care as a result Gia has been doing what she wants, especially with boys.

      • Babson_Chick

        Agree – hate how these girls were raised by learning that bling is the “thing” one must know

  • twifan2

    UNLESS Gia declares herself legally emancipated, her earnings are her parents’ income.

  • italiano bambino

    This is NOTHING new. we know these happen before teresa went away to prison LOL

  • twifan2

    Gia needs to listen to Milania’s words of advice! 😀

    • italiano bambino

      LOL

    • MidwestMiddie

      Still laughing ………………
      “Kudos!”

    • Babson_Chick

      I do – earns the same interest as the bank – well maybe a little more – depends if I “get lucky”

  • Just a jersey girl

    There is one thing I will not comment on and that is minor children. I hope this is bullshit. I noticed her absence from twitter which is a good thing. She should not be on twitter at all too young. I hope she gives no interviews, no more dance singing group, and does what a girl of 14 should do, concentrate on school and school activities.

    It doesn’t help that the TG Official team twitter account always asks about her. That one is real wacko. If I were the family I would shut that one up, she does more harm than good to Teresa’s reputation. I would love All about the Tea to do an article on that one. She is always blasting all bloggers and articles about opposing opinions.

    • WestCoastFeed

      I’d avoid that one. She has been heavily influenced by BW–Media (aka Faux), a disbarred NJ lawyer who has damaged the lives and reputations of people who simply disagreed with her. Beware of her.

      • twifan2

        I rarely go see her acct. Too teen-ish for me & don’t want to see what’s going on with her.
        Good thing too! Didn’t know about BW-Media. Heard about her tho. >(

        • WestCoastFeed

          There are several blogs about her and what she has done. Queenz of Media has one. But she is not alone.

          • twifan2

            SCARY! 😮

          • Just a jersey girl

            It is all very scary how a difference in opinion on Reality Stars can effect people in real life. Who is Sophie

          • WestCoastFeed

            She was a troll who used to stalk me and others who post here whenever we posted over at ROL. I suspect that ROL has banned her. At least I hope they have. I think she is just a teen or preteen.

        • what does BW-Media mean?

          • WestCoastFeed

            She changes her handle every few days because she is trying to hide. She used to be Buck Wheat Media. With many variations on how she spelled that.

          • Oh ok. Gotcha 😉

          • WestCoastFeed

            Remember what a nuisance Sophie was? Faux can be 100 times worse.

          • twifan2

            Like a dog with a bone attitude! :/

          • twifan2

            I don’t understand what she hopes to gain by her ‘actions’? o.0

          • WestCoastFeed

            Some kind of power trip is all I can think.

          • twifan2

            😀

          • Apples and oranges. Everyone knows Sophie is insane / off her meds. No one of sound mind pays her any mind but Faux is smart and calculated and seems to captivate an audience.

          • twifan2

            Chats not part of her audience. 🙂

          • WestCoastFeed

            Faux flatters and flirts and gathers a group around her. She will spot a weak link and use that person to do her dirty work against those she perceives as an “enemy.’ Then when that person is exposed she pretends she had nothing to do with it.

          • Goodness gracious.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Ask Beth Walters what happened to her.

          • Babson_Chick

            Sophie is insane? news to me!! (JK)

          • Hahahaha!

          • twifan2

            CHEERS BABSON! 🙂

          • Babson_Chick

            Cheers back at ya twi!!

          • Shy-ra

            Hi Suess! That explains it! There’s a woman or two that keep responding to various comments of mine (Sophie and EMN?) They think that I’m you (I think?)

            The jist of it is that I encouraged someone to look at a past article on AATT (the one about all of the different people/companies the Juicy’s owe). And now I keep getting emails/responses about how pathetic I am trying to promote MY blog and I’m a squatter(?!?)- which cracked me up!! I just keep telling them they’re bad detectives – LOL Weirdos

          • Hi Shy-ra! So sorry you’re being stalked and harassed. She’s not mentally stable and spews lies. She seems to have a very strange obsession with many people. Notice, no one here rarely mentions her but she can’t stopping ranting about this site and it’s posters. It’s weird indeed. The best advice I can give is ignore her or hang with us sane folks here.

          • Shy-ra

            Actually, I hang here EVERY SINGLE day – just not always posting 🙂 This is hands down my favorite site for good information, good conversation/ posting – and really enjoy Stacy’s articles!

            The “harassing” (if you can even call it that) doesn’t bother me – it’s more laughable than anything! She’s certainly quite a prize – lol!

          • You NAILED it. And yes, it is very comical. All you can do is laugh at the insanity of it all. You have a great weekend, sweets! xoxo

          • twifan2

            Best Western. J/K

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    I honestly think that Gia should just adopt her sisters…she is a better mother figure than what they have, jmo

    • Dave

      No need to adopt, she’ll probably have her own kids soon.

      • WaWaWaWHAT!

        Gawd I hope not that soon

    • Hey WaWa! Gia makes a better role model than drunken Joe and thieving mommy.

      • WaWaWaWHAT!

        Exactly! The kids are more safe with Gia then with the parents…I imagine Joe being drunk 24/7 these days…and Gia doing the cooking, cleaning, & NOW driving the kids to school…LOL

        • It’s a shame that her parents are robbing this young lady of a childhood.

          • Babson_Chick

            Exactly!!

          • Hey sweets! How are you?

          • Babson_Chick

            Hi there!! I’m Ab. Fabulous – how bout you??

          • Hi Lady. I’m fantabulous, thank you! Gearing up for a busy weekend but glad it’s finally here. Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend.

    • Babson_Chick

      WHAT!!!!! Long time no see or hear ya!! Hope you’re doing great!!

      • WaWaWaWHAT!

        • Babson_Chick

          Glad you’re hanging in!! Am doing great thanks – planning my next trip. I try to keep moving before “age” catches up with me. I never use the nasty word “old”. Cheers!!

        • That’s right WaWa. Hang in there, better days are ahead, my friend.

          • WaWaWaWHAT!

            I hope so but kinda losing hope…2 deaths, a car accident…and it’s only April o.0

          • Omg. My heartfelt sympathies. He doesn’t give you more than you can handle, sis.♥︎

  • Dave

    This is good practice for Gia. She’ll drop out of high school and have her own kids before turning 21.

    • Hahahaha!

    • Babson_Chick

      LOL – that’s just what the world needs

    • bellaboo

      Not only kids at a young age, but will probably follow in her mothers footsteps, breaking the law, since shes in prison & gia saw and said “tg looks awesome & prison is fun” in which she has been brainwashed to believe that. When gia becomes legal, tg will help gia fill out paperwork, so she can defraud the govt, banks, & law abiding citizens, since she now knows how to do it, without the govt coming for you. That is gias future!! I hope not, but the statistics dont lie, about, drugs, teenage pregnancy, dropping out of school, breaking the law in general, now that she is a child of covicted felons

    • BeachSpin

      Well 21 is optimistic! That would disqualify her for Teen Mom…that may not go over well with her parents.

  • WestCoastFeed

    In this picture above is Teresa trying to hide Gia’s bare midriff with her arm? This outfit was not as outrageous as the gold booty shorts get up.

    • Just a jersey girl

      I just want to wipe the makeup off her face. She is way too young for all of this.

    • twifan2

      It’s the pudginess Tre’s trying to hide, WCF.

    Gia washing, cooking and cleaning for the family ! Do me a favour ! There is so little affection in that Shambly, and I’ve never seen any loving connection between those girls !

    • Marsbars09

      You don’t think Tre & Joe were affectionate towards their daughters?
      I think Tre & Joe loved their kids, but I think they showed that love by buying them material possessions.

      • Shy-ra

        They also show their “love” by teaching them that they are better than their peers/other people BECAUSE of their material things.Remember the crazy over-the-top birthday party scene (I think it was Gia’s?) Oy! But I have a feeling that’s more on Tre than Juicy. Either way, still disgraceful. Money does not equal affection or class – only in Tre’s world.

      • cait

        I think they love each other, but don’t recognise it or know how to show it in the true unconditional sense !

      • Karma

        Yeah I agree with you Mars they did show love but love to them is buying something expensive I don’t doubt for a min they don’t love their kids. They jyst have a different way of showing it than others may

        Audrianna is just adorable. I love Gabriella she’s quiet & diesnt get involved she loves her sports she’s a bit if a Tom boy I honestly think when she’s old enough Gabriella will run far & fast & nit look back. She just has thst look to me as ti say realky I was into this my outta here when I can

  • Norrth

    That poor child deserves a childhood. My heart breaks for her and the various cries for help via twitter. ‘(

    • WestCoastFeed

      At least her school has a counselor who is speaking to her weekly and helping her deal with the reality of imprisoned parents. I doubt that the family had afford independent therapy for the kids right now.

      • Babson_Chick

        That’s good to hear – someone that has a normal brain and smarts would be great!!

      • TartLemon

        Good, but DAILY she has to face the rest…. students, PTA parents, anyone she runs into at the grocery store, etc.

  • TartLemon

    When Teresa is released, what does that entail? Will there be probation? Ankle monitor? Halfway house?

    • WestCoastFeed

      Yes there will be 2 years of probation. If her lawyer succeeds in getting her release in December, then it will be either halfway house or house arrest until the end of her sentence term in February.

      • twifan2

        Do we know what her terms of her probation are, WCF?

        • WestCoastFeed

          I don’t think they’ve been spelled out for us yet. But Doc may know.

          • twifan2

            Thanks, WCF. 🙂
            I thought we’d have to wait closer to her release date to actually know what it was.

        • Hi hon,

          Teresa’s probation terms are as follows:

          – Teresa must check in with her probation officer 72 hours after being released from prison.

          – She also must allow her probation officer to visit her at home or anywhere else at any time, and that officer can confiscate contraband they find.

          – She has to let the officer know if she’s going to move.

          – Teresa will be required to work at a lawful occupation unless excused by the probation officer for schooling, training or other acceptable reasons.

          – Teresa must refrain from excessive use of alcohol. Controlled substances are also banned.

          – She will have to get permission from probation officials to associate with her husband, Joe because he’s a convicted felon and ex-felons are not allowed to associate with other convicts. LMAO!

          • twifan2

            Thank Seusseroody! :0
            Will she allowed to travel around the country, out of the country? & for how long of a period?

          • You’re welcome sweet cheeks! ♥︎❦

            No, she won’t be allowed to travel freely while under probation. If her job requires travel, she’ll require approval from her probation officer. Teresa will be on probation for 2 years.

          • twifan2

            Thanks again! 🙂
            Man! She is going to be pissed not being able to travel to LA with Gia. 😀

          • Oh yeah. But I bet she’ll make herself Gia’a manager so she can travel with her.

          • twifan2

            Then how is she going to do those $$$ hefty jobs she has lined up for herself? 😀

          • Karma

            OMG I was just thinking that unless her parole officer says it’s not a suitable job for her at the moment can they do that to her

          • WestCoastFeed

            How about her financial records. Will her probation officer be checking those?

          • Not sure about routine financial disclosure unless they suspect some fraud perhaps.

          • Karma

            Hey Dr
            May be Andy might pay her cash under the table

          • cheryl

            You have to give them bank statements and paystubs while on probation. You hand them in when you meet your probation officer once a month.

          • WestCoastFeed

  • Marsbars09

    I feel so sorry for Gia. Her parents have failed her and her sisters. Life as she knew it changed for the hellacious.
    It just brought back painful memories of my own adolescence when Gia claimed she needs a new beginning. The girl shouldn’t have to worry about nothing except going to school and enjoying her extra-curricular activities.
    Damn Tre & Joe for doing this to her!

    • WestCoastFeed

      Amen, Marsie. It’s not Gia’s fault that she has had such miserable parenting. Let’s put some positive wishes out for the girl and not predict doom and gloom for her.

      • Karma

        Yep i agree I’ll be happy to send her postive thoughts/energy to Gia.

        While I’m telecommunicating I’ll be sending so good sense to Tre & Joe. As much as I like them i can’t believe they did this to their girls & themselves

    Oh BS, Gia is probably at her GF’s house 24/7, Joe’s mother and sister are taking care of the other girls, and I would never pay a dime to see Gia Guidice ….. her criminal parents thought nothing of those girls while committing crimes and flaunted their stolen money to make them spoiled brats

    • Hey Cha! LMAO….you’re probably right. Something tells me Gia is running the streets 24/7 and Joe and Teresa’s mom manage the household while Joe chases the ho’s. That sounds like a hit reality show.

      • chacha1

        spot on my friend ….. here is a smile for you 🙂

        • Thank you and right back at ya! xo 🙂

  • Sammie

    Hey everyone, my life has taken a turn for the worse, yes I’m crying, not just for myself. My husband had a major heart attack, he’s lost 20lbs and he looks badly.. His father is dying of cancer. So I’m just asking my friends to say a prayer for my family. Crying is the best thing for me, because I normally just go with the flow. It’s just too much at once.. Thank y’all for everything. (Trippinhhard) they changed my name, after my account is finally back to normal..

    • chacha1

      I am so sorry to hear this, prayers sent your way

  • Sophia Z.

    Poor little girl. She hasn’t had a chance in hell. She started growing up way too fast even before the convictions. Sad.

  • HalleG

    I”m not buying this sob story crap. I bet the kid is running wild and taking scantily clad pics to put on their 3KT instagram. Anyone seen that? Pedo dream, they have the girl in micro mini skirts with catholic school girl outfits, looks like what women wear in the begininning of pron movies.

    All this is just to hype her up so she can get a show and they can buy glitter made of real gold and the finest wig extensions made from real almost extinct gorilla hair.

    There are countless REAL girls suffering in silence everyday from poverty, child abuse, etc that that have no one concerned about them. Yet these spoiled brats have a ton of family, loads of stolen hidden cash and people are crying over them, I don’t get it.

    • This is hilarious!! ROFLMAOO!

    • Pony Mama

      Preach it.

    • Karma

      Omg i just spat out my coffee real but extinct gorilla hair ext how the fuck did you think of that it’s hilarious

      • HalleG

        Tre’s forehead hair inspired that line. 😉

    • >:-|OPINIONATED-deal with it!

      This story seems old…the topic was discissed before.

      They continue to try onkeeping TG “relevant” with these type of stories.

  • Fritz the. At

    All over this country, children are going to bed with a parent serving our nation while being in harms way. There are kids with both parents away. Somehow they manage without having to sell bullshit stories for $5 k a pop. They work part time jobs, excel in school and somehow grow up as productive, honest citizens. Then there are teresa and her brood of reality clowns. She sells her kids out for d list fame and now these kids expect fame, fortune and wealth just by showing up. No talent, no looks, no hard work required. The more I see of teresa and her parenting skills, the more I hope for a fameless future when she emerges from her vacation,

    • Marsbars09

      Fritz, I have a feeling Tre returning to her reality TV fame is going to be a rude awakening. Life as she knows it will never be the same. I believe she’s going to neglect her kids while she chases that elusive dollar. That’s how narcissistic, fame hungry and selfish she is. I think the girls will be FIVE TIMES as traumatized because they won’t have their mother back (not that Tre was a mother in the figurative sense) and their drunk father will be carted off to prison.
      Those girls are going to have to figure a way to make it in this world because they can never rely on their parents for anything. What a tragic way to live life.

    • Ilivehereandlikeit

      Amen.

  • Karma

    I honestly don’t believe ANY child should have to grow up or worry bout taking care of their family. But I can certainly understand my dad list his job I was 15yrs old my parents never told but at age 15yrs you def know what’s going on they never asked for fir ANYTHING but as the eldest child I took it upon myself & got a job at Woolworth & I’d run to the post box everyday to look for bills before my parents saw them & I’d pay whatever I could I BOUGHT food from work & tell mum & dad they gave it to me coz I worked extra & didn’t take any breaks my god they were worried I was stealing from my job so they went & spoke to my manager he said no she’s a hard worker & pays fir everything he also told them I was skipping school to take up more shifts at work boy did I get into trouble my parents sat me down & said it’s not your job to look after us thank you but ok you know dad isn’t working but we have saving ( that was BS I knew they didn’t) not ling after bout 4 -5 months later dad found a job.

    But I really wanted to help i was so scared we’ll lose our home & be on the street I wasn’t worried bout me i was worried for the rest of my family mind you dad had a heart attack & mum suffered from migraines severely. Yeah thanks mum that’s where I get my migraines something great i inherited from her lol.

    But it did teach me the value of money & I have great work ethics so I did learn something from that I hated it at the time but looking back I’m appreciate everything I gave & I’m a hard worker I don’t take anything fir granted coz in a blink of an eye it can all be taken away from you.

    Thank you Mum & Dad

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Karma! I’m especially touched by your story as my family also went through hard times when I was 16. I went from living comfortable and stress free to worrying about if I would have a place to live. It was a very scary time and I empathize with what Gia is going through.
      Like you and me, Gia probably feels pressure to take on adult responsibilities. That is why Joe and Tre’s selfishness angers me. I don’t think they realize how traumatized their children are and how it will affect them in the future.

      • Karma

        Thank you hun I agree i think she does feel the pressure we felt I only hope she learns from it & doesn’t go down the same path as her family inc all her uncles & aunts.

        Yes I don’t think Tre & Joe realize the impact of what they’ve done to their girls like I said I hope the kids will by their parents mistakes and be better people for it.

        I do like Tre & Joe I certainly don’t like or condone what they’ve done but it’s done I’m also hoping & giving them a chance to hopefully change their ways.

        If they do it again well I really can’t give them another chance there’s no excuse there’s no excuse for the 1st time either but many people get greedy & competitive with family and friends that’s when they do stupid things & become materialistic but I don’t know if they realize no crime goes unsolved you always get caught it took them what 10yrs to get caught I bet they thought they were home free.

        Wonder who’s next imo most of these HW & their husband will go down one by one esp in NY show.

        I’m so happy for you& your family you didn’t end up on the street.

        Your a great person & a strong person it’s easy to do what they did it’s harder to work for what you have & you appreciate it more.

        Again I truly hope they get legitimate jobs pay off everyone they owe & life a respectful way of life no more crimes.

        God bless hun

        • Marsbars09

          Thank you Karma. I admire the great insight and wisdom you share with posters.
          I too believe quite a few of the housewives are one step from filing from bankruptcies, and NJ isn’t the only one.

          • Karma

            Thanks Mars that realky means a lot after I posted it I thought oh maybe I shouldn’t have really who cares it happened yrs ago but my point was that maybe Gia feel the way i felt esp being the eldest that she needs to grow up & take up more responsibilities I only hope she learns a lesson from this & realizes that you can’t do what Tre & Joe did & she develope into a sensible young lady with a positive future

    • Pony Mama

      That is such a beautiful story, and the lessons you learn from hard times are more valuable than any affluence or luxury you can grow up with. Thank you for sharing, and inspiring.

      • Karma

        Hi Pony

        You’re absolutely right I grew up with nothing that’s why I appreciate everything I have & I don’t expect anything from anyone or expect anything for free.

        I don’t believe in life there is anything for free except unconstitutional love if you’re lucky enough to have or find it.

        Everything else is a bonus

    • Ruth Ferguson

      you sound like a wonderful daughter, and I bet a awesome friend to all, that know you. Not like the hoodlum acting rich HW’s , that have so much, and bring so little. God Bless You .

      • Karma

        Thank you for your kind words I do try to be a good person to family and friends even strangers.

        I thank my parents for teaching me the value of money, family and being kind to everyone.

        I really am a true believer of what goes around comes around.

        I wouldn’t change one bit of the that lesson in time taught me.

        May God bless you and your family

    • You are a beautiful person. Thanks for sharing a little piece of you with us. Your parents have raised an incredibly insight and kind woman. xoxo

  • Marsbars09

    Hi AATT family! I hope you’re all doing well.
    To Doc, Twi, Jenny, Birdie, and all my other family that have been asking about me, I’ve been really busy at work this week so I haven’t been posting much. Also, I’m “under the weather” as the cold has finally caught up with me. I’m going to self-medicate and try to feed my soul with chicken noodle soup and Vitamin C.
    On a lighter note, I wanted to share that I saw the great George Benson in concert a couple of weeks ago.(I hope you know who he is). I’ve liked him ever since I was a young girl as my mother bought his records. He gave a great performance for a 72 year-old man. ;). Mr. Benson is not touring very much so it was a real treat to see him.
    Next Saturday I’m going to see Steely Dan. Do you guys know who they are? I’m so excited as I love their music and I know those old-schooners are going to BRING IT!
    OK, I know I gave you an earful. Thanks for listening. 🙂

    • Sophia Z.

      I miss Steely Dan. They put out some great music in their time. Enjoy! I hope you get feeling better. xox

      • Marsbars09

        Thanks Sophia!

    • Birdie

      Hey Marsie!! I used to love Steely Dan…think of me if Josie is performed!

      • Marsbars09

        I sure will.
        Thanks Birdie.

    • Hey honey! So good to hear from you. I was worried. Sounds like you’ve been burning the midnight oil. Please get some rest, stay hydrated and feel better. Enjoy Steely Dan….they’re a treat. (((Hugs))) ♥︎

      • Marsbars09

        Thanks Doc! I’m looking forward to feeling good and Steely Dan.

    • DLister

      Hey, Mars! Indeed, Steely Dan, George Benson, et al — the music of my childhood — yay! Glad you are loving it, girl!

      I just came back from a flea market, met a groovy hot looking authentic hippie (great face), and he serenaded me with Eric Clapton tunes on his guitar. Good times this morning!

      • Marsbars09

        Well it sounds like your morning got off to a great start!

    • Babson_Chick

      Hey there Mars!! I’ve seen Steely Dan (those were the days) but not George. Take care!!

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Babs!
        Thanks. I can’t wait to experience their music live.

        • Babson_Chick

    Poor G-girl really is shouldering a shitload of baggage. I hope that she sails through it. I would be positive her younger siblings are truly going to look up to her and respect her.

  • requiempoet

    When my mom died, I was fourteen. My dad was so depressed. He would work, prepare dinner ( us kids would help) then go in the family room and just sit and wallow. It was just me and my brother at the time, my other two siblings were at college, so ME and my bro, would go clean.

    It was like that for a long time. Then he found someone.

    So, no. I don’t feel sorry for these kids, yes their parents are sh it bag felons, but they are alive.
