Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe were recently charged with 39 counts of fraud, which leaves us all wondering how the scandal will affect Bravo and the show. Should the The Real Housewives of New Jersey star be fired due this mess?
Come on, Paula Deen says one racist word nearly 30 years ago and she is dropped by Food Network, but Teresa Giudice has not been dropped by Bravo yet? Something is definitely wrong with this picture. After being charged with 30 counts of fraud, including tax evasion, bankruptcy fraud, and loan fraud, there still may be a chance that Bravo will drop the lying couple from their series, but no word has been leaked yet.
Bravo may also be dragged into the Giudice mess, experts speculate. “Employees filming for Bravo can certainly be called as witnesses to establish that the Giudices were perhaps making large purchases in cash during the time of the bankruptcy,” one New Jersey attorney told FOX411 earlier about the scandal.
Another attorney thinks that Bravo may be questioned as a possible co-conspirator, adding: “It’s odd that they were able to continue living in that opulent mansion and living such a lavish lifestyle when they were in that kind of financial ruin.”
Somehow, we doubt that Bravo had any sort of co-conspiracy going, but we definitely think they should fire the Giudice family. What do you think?
Do you believe the Giudices’ claims of innocence? Did the couple commit fraud? Is it time to grow up and face the consequences for Teresa and Joe? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
