It was a completely different atmosphere that the usual party vibe on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on Sunday night. The occasion? The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudice were there to talk about the possibility of facing 50 years in jail and having to leave their four daughters to be raised by someone else.
Since the premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice’s over-the-top lifestyle has been well documented by the Bravo cameras. Whether she was showing off her ridiculous house or paying thousands of dollars in cash for furniture and clothes for her daughters, she never seemed to worry about money.
You may have thought that their money problems were over after filing for bankruptcy, but in reality their bankruptcy proceedings were what led to a 39 count indictment alleging that Teresa and Joe tried to hide assets and income during the bankruptcy process.
This was the first time they have spoken out publicly since the indictment in July. This season the drama between Teresa and Joe Giudice and her brother and sister-in-law Joe and Melissa Gorga, seemed to be water under the bridge. The two couples seemed to bury — at least partially — the hatchet for the sake of their parents and children. But apparently all is not well. When host, Andy Cohen asked where their kids would live if they went to jail, Joe said of daughters, Gia, 12, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 7, and Audriana, 3. “They wouldn’t want to go there [to the Gorgas' home]. Because of all the things they say on television about their mom. It wouldn’t be Melissa and Joe. It would be my sister and brother.” H e also added the Joe and Melissa have note really “been supportive” during this trying time.
Both Teresa and Joe claim innocence on all charges, but we will have to stay tuned to see if The Real Housewives of New Jersey will have to film the couple behind bars!
Do you think Teresa and Joe Giudice will go to jail over these charges? Do you think that they should consider Joe and Melissa as guardians for their daughters? Comment below and let us know!
