Andy begins by asking, ”What has the last month been like for you?” Teresa says she is not happy about it. She’s sad. It feels like a dream. She has to be strong for her husband and her children. Joe says they were surprised by the charges. Teresa says she is not crawling under a rock and hiding. When we go to court everyone will see who and Joe and I really are. Joe says they are not guilty.
Teresa said her castmates have all been supportive. Teresa says Gia knows there is something going on. Gia doesn’t ask her any questions according to Teresa. It doesn’t sound like Teresa really tells Gia much. I have a feeling she is googling it. If she is, this is a very detailed yet easy to follow breakdown, if I do say so myself.
Teresa says she hasn’t really thought what she would do with her daughters. She is focusing on just staying positive. Joe says they would not send the kids to live with Melissa and Joe. He says that he doesn’t think that the kids would even want to go live with them after all the things they have said about their mother on the show. Which begs the question, why do they let their kids watch this crapfest? Joe says they would probably go stay with his brother and his wife. Andy asks if Melissa and Joe have been supportive and Joe says notreally! Teresa tries to cushion it saying, “You know, I mean, they call but there is nothing anyone can do.”
Andy asks if they think the show brought this on. Joe says absolutely, if he wasn’t on the show nobody would care. Really? Cool. I am not on a show so does that mean I can defraud the banks out of a few million? I could really use a kitchen renovation! Andy says that a lot of the charges stem from before they came on the show. Joe says he doesn’t regret anything he has done on the show. I had forgotten that Teresa said she didn’t want to live in a used house. LOL.
Andy asks how she feels about continuing the show. Tre says she just wants to keep working. She wants the rest of the cast continue to treat her with respect.
Teresa just said she did not get involved in her husbands finances. Teresa said she did not withhold any information because she was not involved in the finances.
Andy brings up the horse whisperer confessions. LOL. Andy says that it seems Joe has fears in the back of his mind about going to jail (IT’S PRISON). Joe says he has to keep it in the back of his mind because he can’t let interfere with his day to day living or he would be a mess.
Then Teresa delivers the following statement, “I feel like we are good people and I don’t know why this is happening to us.” Andy says, “You feel like it is happening to you.” Teresa says she used to be a good sleeper and now she has a lot of sleepless nights. Teresa says she is being a rock for the family. She has to stay positive.
Joe says his DUI was the first time he was in jail. He was there for a week. He says it was an interesting week. Joe says he has a green card. Andy asks if Joe is afraid of getting deported and Teresa interrupts and says, we are not even thinking about that! We are staying positive! If he is on a green card the chances of him being deported are pretty darn good.
Andy asks Teresa if she feels like she has ever lived beyond her means. She says no. I can only imagine that is because she did not understand the question. I am being serious. Joe says people who have said that I think are just idiots, because we have never lived beyond our means whatever I could afford to buy, I would buy. We’re allowed to make money. That’s what I do, we make money. If you could see my face now it would look sort of like this…
Because he has 39 federal indictments on charges stemming for a BANKRUPTCY filing including frauding banks out of money and not paying taxes. It doesn’t sound like you were making lots of money and living within your means to me, Juicy. Juicy says that she has to buy new things for the show. They can’t wear the same thing twice.
Andy asked them when they first found out about the charges. Joe says a few years ago we had some IRS guys show up to the house. We didn’t think anything of it. Good GOD these people are stupid.
Andy asks if in hindsight they feel like they have made any mistakes. Joe says, “As far as what?” SERIOUSLY? Joe says, “Nobody is perfect. Everybody makes mistakes.” Then he laughs. Andy asks if Joe takes any responsibility for anything that has happened? Joe says no. Andy says that when heard the charges carry a maximum of 50 years in prison, he got emotional because he knew them. Andy asks where their emotion is? Teresa says she has to be strong for her kids. Teresa goes off on some sort of tangent about not understanding why this is happening and how everything is a learning experience. Andy asks her if she thinks she can survive jail and she says she doesn’t think about that. She says she hasn’t done anything wrong. She can’t think about that. Andy asks Teresa is she is in denial. She says no. Teresa says you’re damned if you do, and you’re damned if you don’t with regard to her “being strong” (aka being in complete denial).
This time Andy asks Teresa if there is anything she wishes she would have done differently. Teresa says she thinks about things like that. Teresa says she wonders if she had not done the show if this would be happening. Teresa says there are good things and bad things. Andy says 39 counts is a really bad thing. Teresa says she doesn’t even know what the charges are. She asks Andy to tell her some of them and he reads a list. Both Joe and Teresa don’t understand the big words. Again, not throwing shade here, that is a fact. Joe asks what the charges like wire fraud mean, how do you do that? Juicy wants to know. Andy asks Teresa if she did any of that and she says no. And that is where my DVR stopped. Anything good after that?
So that is it. They don’t know why this is happening to them. They don’t know what the charges mean. Whatever it means they didn’t do it. They did not live beyond their means. Everyone else is being an idiot. We have nothing to worry about. DELUSIONAL party of two? You table is ready in the Prison Yard.
