The latest news about a prominent Real Housewives of New Jersey star is taking many by surprise. With three days before their sentencing date, Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe Giudice, apparently threw a pre-prison bash over the weekend. Responses about the RHONJ cast member and her husband are mixed, but the word “party” and “prison” don’t sound good in the same sentence.
Teresa Giudice and Joe hosted a “Stays Strong” gala in Parsippany, New Jersey at Pure Lounge. According to guests in attendance who are close to the troubled couple, they both appeared to be in good spirits and seemed not to “have a care in the world,” citing a RadarOnline celebrity gossip report on September 29.
Insiders said the Giudices, parents to four daughters, including Gia Giudice, 14, their eldest daughter and aspiring singer, mingled with invited guests — mainly family and friends. Teresa joked around, ate her fill of cake and appeared positive on what could be her last days as a free woman for a time.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey member and her husband entered guilty pleas this year as part of their bankruptcy cases. Teresa Giudice’s sentencing date is Thursday, October, 2. She will learn if a judge imposes a prison sentence on her or gives her probation as a first-time offender. Reportedly, the reality star-turned entrepreneur’s maximum jail time is up to 35 hears. That said, it could very well make sense why someone would want to live life to the fullest by throwing a party, with the thought looming of being incarcerated for a long time.
Meanwhile, Joe is awaiting his sentencing on an additional count of using a drivers license fraudulently. His potential outlook is worse, all things considered: sources say the RHONJ star’s spouse could receive a longer sentence and/or be deported.
Much has been said about the Real Housewives star since news broke of their legal problems. There was even talk of Teresa Giudice being pregnant, based on a grainy “baby bump” picture. Moreover, some information in tabloids and social media suggest that if Tre is with child, it was done deliberately to attract sympathy from the judge on the day they learn of any possible jail sentencing.
Was Teresa Giudice showing a bit of overconfidence by throwing a pre-prison party? There likely won’t be any consensus on that question, but one thing is for certain: Thursday will be a circus outside of the New Jersey court.
