Most Real Housewives of New Jersey fans following Joe and Teresa Giudice’s fraud scandal have no doubt that the couple is guilty of, well, something. But Teresa’s close friend Kim DePaola insists that the reality star is nothing more than the victim of a witch hunt.
Believe it or not, Teresa Giudice still has a ton of fans backing her up, as she’s been only too happy to point out via Twitter. In addition to frequent Instagram posts memorializing her family’s recent beach day, Teresa has been busy re-tweeting messages of support from her remaining fans, many of whom believe the Real Housewife has been unfairly attacked.
Also supporting Teresa is her best friend, Kim DePaola. Kim explained to Radar Online that there is absolutely no way Teresa could have ever played the villain role to which she’s been assigned by the media. “I don’t think she’s capable of doing the things she’s been charged with. I think there’s been a witch hunt going on for a long time for her.”
Kim adds that, in her opinion, it’s unfair for Teresa to be labelled a criminal. “In this country we are innocent until proven guilty.” Ever the faithful friend, the self-described “familiar face on RHONJ” insists that she loves Teresa and “will stand by her” as she battles the haters (and the justice system).
Do you agree with Kim DePaola? Is this all just one big witch hunt? Or does the mounting evidence against Joe and Teresa Giudice suggest that the couple have been fraudulent all along? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
