Get THE Screen Obsessed TV Buzz:
Did you hear yesterday about Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, entering guilty pleas in their fraud cases? The ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey‘ star pleaded guilty to four counts of fraud; Joe plead guilty as well in a plea deal. As a result, Teresa faces between 21 – 27 months in prison, and Joe could be sentenced to 37 – 46 months. Yeah, they’re both looking at YEARS in prison. They will be sentenced in July. Teresa said in a statement via her attorney:
Today I took responsibility for a series of mistakes I made several years ago. I am heartbroken that this is affecting my family. Especially my four young daughters, who mean more to me than anything in the world.”
But the show must go on! Teresa and Joe are filming all of this for ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey.’ Their legal issues will be a storyline throughout the season. TMZ reports the producers are “going at warp speed” to shoot everything they can with Teresa and Joe before they’re sentenced. The main issue is that they may both be in prison by the time the reunion show is taped, since that’s taped last. At least the Giudices still have ‘Real Housewives’ for some income. I can’t imagine what they must be going through right now!
