Just when you thought it was over- More Teresa Giudice Money Problems-Lies & Debt

Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice In Court

More news to report in the Teresa Giudice bankruptcy saga.

Somehow this news has managed to slip through the cracks, but two days after the Ibuysss blog first broke the story, Reality Tea has uncovered some documents showing that on September 24, 2010, New Jersey Judge Morris Stern ruled that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa and her husband Joe Giudice are required to stand trial on July 14 & 15, 2011 for charges relating to bankruptcy fraud.

The Giudices had tried to get the bankruptcy fraud allegations dismissed. If you recall, Teresa and Joe filed bankruptcy back in October 2009 to the tune of $11 million in debt. Things were working according to plan for the Giudices as Teresa even went on a $60,000 shopping spree just days after filing Chapter 7.

The problems arose however when on 06/30/2010, John W. Sywilok, the Chapter 7 Trustee assigned to oversee the Giudices bankruptcy filing, alleged they had commited bankruptcy fraud by concealing assets and income from their filing. The accusations include –

  • Failure to report $250,000 (an advance Teresa received from a publishing deal for her book)
  • Failure to report Joe’s ownership/interest in a Pizza shop
  • Failure to report a $3,333.33 monthly income
  • Concealing assets including a bank account of Joe’s, two pieces of real property, vehicles, the ownership of an online boutique called TG Fabulicious
  • Presenting false income tax returns to the bankruptcy court

From looking at the court documents, tt seems the July, 2011 court date is simply to get a judge to dismiss the Giudices’ Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition because of fraud. If the trustee does suceed in getting the bankruptcy dismissed, the Giudices would then be responsible for their $11 million debt.

We’re no legal experts here at Reality Tea but it is likely criminal charges for lying under oath, IRS fraud, etc will follow if the Giudices are found guilty of commiting bankruptcy fraud as it appears the July 2011 hearing is solely focusing on getting their bankruptcy dismissed, and not so much on the criminal aspect of the serious allegations.

Above is a photo of NJ Housewives’ Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice as they attended the Posche 2nd Annual fashion show at The Brownstone on November 2, 2010 in Paterson, New Jersey. The country club where the fashion show was previously asked all of the ladies in attendance to never return again; thus, the show was held at the Brownstone. This is the same event during which Teresa reportedly threw a hissy fit because her sister-in-law and new NJ Housewife Melissa Gorga was scheduled to walk the runway before her. Photos below of Teresa, Jacqueline, and Melissa working the runway!

Teresa Giudice discusses Joe cheating & leaving housewives

9 Nov

“Alright for the record, Life&Style=garbage, RadarOnline=flies who eat poop off of garbage. You will all see the truth when Season 3 airs. xx.”

Above is what Teresa Giudice had to say about media outlets RadarOnline for reporting that she and hubby Joe Giudice started a brawl at her nephew’s christening, and Life & Style magazine for doing a cover story alleging Joe was cheating on her.

Appearing in the latest issue of In Touch magazine, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star attempts to put an end to the cheating rumors that continue to plague her marriage.

Teresa adamantly denies all the cheating reports and says she isn’t even giving any of it a second thought. “I know my husband – I’m not covering for him,” she insists. “If I knew he cheated on me, I would leave the guy in two seconds.”

As for how’s she’s so certain, Teresa adds, “You get that feeling when you have a boyfriend, fiance, whatever – you get a feeling when it’s not right. By the way they act, and the way they interact with you, you can just tell.”

Teresa does admit however that the constant reports have changed the way she and Joe live their lives as they are both now very careful in their actions when they go out. “I was at a bar [with girlfriends] and some guy asked me to dance,” Teresa shares. “I said no, because I knew that if I dance with him, it would be all over the papers.”

She also states that Joe no longer likes to go to clubs without her because “if a female fan comes up to him and takes a picture with him, it will be all over the place. People will think he’s on a date.”

Things are so great with Teresa and Joe that they are even considering trying for baby #5! “If you ask my husband, I’m sure he would want to have more,” Teresa says. “I did go to a psychic once, and she said I was going to have five. You never know!”

And finally, Teresa confirms to the mag that she has no intention of leaving the Housewives series. She also denies there is any trouble in her friendship with co-star Caroline Manzo, despite multiple reports stating otherwise.


OC Housewife Vicki Gunvalson out of hospital but “very sick”.

3 Nov

Following her brief hospitalization on Thursday for internal bleeding, Vicki Gunvalson has now been released.

Despite her release from the hospital, the Real Housewives of Orange County star tells E! News that she is not feeling much better. The reason she was hospitalized? Internal bleeding due to ulcers in her colon.

Vicki also denies reports that her hospitalization was caused by anxiety from her divorce. “It’s not due to anxiety,” says Vicki. “It’s not due to a divorce. I’m very sick. I was hemorrhaging. It was very scary. I have internal bleeding in my colon, and they fixed it.”

Vicki tells E! she had surgery on Friday and is now home on required bed rest. “I’m not feeling good,” says Vicki. “They said I’ll be OK. It could flare up again, but I’m very healthy and I didn’t do anything to cause this. People just get sick. I’m going to be OK.”

E! also reports that Vicki’s soon to be ex-husband Donn Gunvalson paid her a hospital visit despite their pending divorce. “It’s amicable,” Vicki said. “We’re perfect. We’re not fighting.”

NYC Housewife Ramona: “We don’t even miss Bethenny!”

3 Nov


While many viewers are tuning in to watch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo, it seems popular Bravolebrity Bethenny Frankel isn’t much of a fan.

“I know Kyle [Richards] from years ago, but I haven’t been watching it,” the busy mom of 5-month-old daughter Bryn told In Touch magazine.

Bethenny, who is busy filming the 2nd season of her own show Bethenny’s Getting Married then added, “It’s so lavish and big. I’m not sure if it’s totally relatable with all that money… I didn’t know people even had that much money!”

Bethenny’s former co-star, Ramona Singer of the Real Housewives of NYC, is also giving her own opinion on Bethenny’s exit from the show.

In an interview with the HollywoodLife, Ramona makes it clear the show goes on with or without Bethenny. “You know what, we don’t really miss [Bethenny],” said Ramona. “We got enough going on, trust me.”

Ramona adds that though Bethenny is busy with her own show, they still speak and text occasionally. “I miss her as a person, but it’s all going to be good [now that Cindy Bishop has joined the cast],” Ramona continued. “It’s going to be our best season ever, it really is!”

And finally, in case you’ve ever wondered why some of the Bravo housewives subject themselves to the pitfalls and humiliation of putting their lives on reality television, you know, other than the fact that most of them are famewhores, the SmokingGun website is about to give you 15,000 reasons.

According to the site, $15,000 is the amount Jill Zarin earned for a speaking appearance. Just last month, the University of South Florida paid the Real Housewives of NYC star 15gs to address some of their college students and sign copies of her books.

In addition to the $15,000 fee, Jill also received accommodations in a hotel suite, a $100 per diem, and had her airfare paid for. So folks, the next time you read about a Bravo housewife threatening to leave the show, feel free to roll your eyes, knowing that none of these women will give up on their Bravo ticket to money and fame.
