There is a fantastic story on Teresa Giudice in the New York Post today by Gregory E. Miller. It’s chock full of Teresa tea and information about her PR manager. Miller also understands the sentencing guidelines which thrills me to no end. I’ll break down some of the highlights for you but you really should head over there and read the whole thing and then come back here to chatter in comments.
Miller was apparently on set for some promotional shoot for the upcoming season of RHONJ recently and noticed that Tre is not a particularly easy subject for photographers to work with. Miller writes:
“I would never wear this dress,” she gripes of the coral one-shoulder number that looks pretty much like every dress you’ve ever seen her wearing. “It’s not me.”
She’s lounging in a cabana with a glass of bubbly — though she’s not pleased that her own brand, Fabellini, has not been provided. Teresa forces a smile as the photographer asks the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star to try some shots standing.
“I like sitting because then you can’t see the dress,” the 42-year-old sniffs.
For the record, the dress SCREAMS Jersey housewife reunion gown. It’s exactly the one shoulder number they all wear. The woman is being bratty at a photoshoot where all she has to do is stand there and drink champagne and try to look pretty, while waiting to be sentenced to FEDERAL PRISON. It boggles the mind of anyone whose brain even remotely works properly and quite frankly causes ones blood to boil.
When asked why she is returning to RHONJ despite all of her legal issues and family woes, Teresa replies ““It’s my job. This is my career now, and why wouldn’t I return? When they don’t want me anymore, then I’ll find another show.”
Teresa’s best show chance at another show is one of those women in prison shows on National Geographic. The problem is that she will be in federal prison where such filming is not generally allowed. If she was just in county lockup she might have had a shot. But her “career” is over and the parent companies for her “brands” are getting antsy. Her house of cards is collapsing around her and I am not sure she has really noticed yet.
Miller goes on to out Teresa’s hired mouth piece (a ghost speaker of sorts). When Teresa is asked if she has to work to pay her legal fees (um, duh) …
She doesn’t have a chance to respond as her “legal crisis manager” Wendy Feldman jumps in. Feldman listens to the entire interview, fending off questions and frequently speaking for the reality star.
Despite her title, Feldman admits she has no law degree. But she did spend 16 months in federal prison for a $4.1 million Ponzi-esque scheme.
“[I was] a real wolf-ess of Wall Street, but not so dramatic,” Feldman tells The Post.
Well, that explains a lot. Who better to prepare Teresa for doing time than a fellow fraudster who knows the ropes. I am sure Wendy can tell her how to make prison make-out and give her pointers on how to make a decent meal out of items found the prison commissary.
When Miller asks about her family, Teresa responds, “We’re all in a good place,” she says. “No matter what happens, I’ll always be [Joe’s] sister. I’ll always forgive him, and blah blah blah.” Blah Blah Blah? She will always forgive him? Like he is the problem in the relationship? Sofa king delusional!
About filming the new season. You know the one where we have seen Gia melting down and Teresa pining for the good old days…. Teresa says. “I was like, ‘Yay, this is going to be fun!’ I was really into it and so happy. And I think you’re going to see the Teresa you saw first season. If you really know me, I’m all about having a good time. I’m not going to sit in bed all day. I’m going to keep going. Nothing’s going to stop me.”’
If I were the judge, I would read this and double her sentence. To this very day she still thinks this is all fun and games and the parts that are not fun she just doesn’t understand. Why do unfun things keep happening to her?
Does she have any regrets? What do you think? Miller writes:
One question Feldman does let Teresa answer is whether she has any regrets.
“Um, my God. I don’t know,” Teresa says. “Yes and no. . . .I think I’m just going to leave it at that. It’s a hard question for me.”
She admits she’s not embarrassed by her outrageous behavior on the show, like that table flip.
“I’m not ashamed of that. That’s what happens. I take it, I take it, I take it — and then I explode,” she says. “But also, looking at that now, you learn, and you grow every day. I want to show my daughters a strong role model.”
Teresa needs to be told to shut the fuck up until after her sentencing. Reading this article makes me want to throw her under the jail. It’s nauseating. And this is just a few excerpts. Go here to read the entire article if you have the stomach for it.
