Teresa Giudice had a gift waiting for her in the driveway when she returned home after spending nearly a year in prison: a black Lexus SUV was out front with a big red bow on it. Given the fact that Teresa and husband Joe Giudice were financially struggling when she entered prison, the big gift was a bit of a surprise.
Teresa’s lawyer explained the gift to People:
She needs a car. End of story – just like anyone else who needs a car.”
Yeah, that makes sense, we all get that: but a Lexus? Seriously? I get that she’s likely made some serious money between the Bravo special, her book deal, and the new filming she’s doing for Bravo now that she’s out of prison, but Joe is about to start serving about three years in prison. Their lavish lifestyle was likely a big part of what got them into this mess in the first place. Wouldn’t it be more, well, prudent to save a bit of money?
Well, they know the details of their financial situation better than anyone else; it’s their business. And it’s the holidays! It’ll be their last Christmas together as a family for a few years, at least: Joe will likely start serving his sentence in March, I’d guess, once Teresa’s term is officially over. He and Teresa were allowed to serve their prison terms consecutively so that one of them could be home with their four daughters. Teresa, who is on home confinement for the rest of her term (it ends February 5th), is already said to be planning to do some spray tanning at home. The next time she steps out of those doors, she will look like her old self!
In the meantime, she conveyed a holiday message via her attorney:
‘Merry Christmas. Happy New Year….all of you should go be with your families and your loved ones.'”
I’m sure Teresa has an even stronger appreciation for her family after being apart from them for so long. It will be a wonderful holidays indeed for the Giudices!
