Real Housewives of New Jersey
The husband of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star, Teresa Giudice, will face a judge Thursday.
Just days after she reported to prison, officials announced Thursday that reality TV star Teresa Giudice is slated for an early release.
Teresa Giudice reported to a federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, on Monday morning to begin serving a 15-month sentence for bankruptcy fraud.
A federal judge won’t recommend that prison officials allow “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice (JOO’-dys) to serve most of her federal prison sentence in a halfway house.
Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison after she pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy. Her husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, was sentenced to 41 months.
A lawyer for Joe Giudice announced in court Wednesday that his client was turning down a deal that would have resolved false identification charges.
Teresa Giudice said the sentence of 15 months was “very unexpected,” as was the 41-month sentence doled out to her husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, last Thursday in federal court in Newark.
Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in prison Thursday and his wife, Teresa Giudice, was sentenced to 15 months behind bars on conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud charges.
Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, are seeking nearly $4 million for the six-bedroom home in Montville.
The couple is accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans before their TV show debuted in 2009, then hiding their fortunes in a bankruptcy filing after their first season aired.
The couple submitted fraudulent mortgage and other loan applications from 2001 through 2008, a year before their show debuted on Bravo, making phony claims about their employment status and salaries, the indictment said.
Season five of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey picks up where Hurricane Sandy left off. The storm also delayed the opening of the Manzo’s latest restaurant venture, Little Town N.J. in Hoboken.
Teresa Giudice visited The Couch to cook up some of her favorites.
Assemblyman Ronald Dancer said reality shows sometimes bring unwanted attention to suburban communities and towns should get a say in the filming.
It didn’t take long for Melissa Gorga, the newest star of Bravo’s hit reality TV show “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” to get into the drama.
