Teresa is on her book tour, attempting to sell her new book on prison life to Tre-huggers. In her book, Turning the Tables
Teresa tells GMA in her first sit down interview, which airs tomorrow morning, “We’re not in foreclosure any longer, thank you, God…and our restitution’s paid off. So that’s it! We’re in…thank God .. in good shape.” Well good for them. Who cares about all the other people they fucked over and how they are doing? Teresa is financially solvent and that is all that matters. Thanks Bravo. #FelonsByBravo It seems that being on TV while committing crimes makes life a lot easier. Especially when you only have to pay off less than half a million to make good on stealing millions.
Here is a reminder of the four charges out of 41 she pled guilty to in her plea deal.
Count One: Conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. Maximum Sentence 20 years/ $250K Fine
Count 15 : Bankruptcy Fraud- Concealment Maximum Sentence 5 years./ $250K Fine
Count 23 : Bankruptcy Fraud- False Oaths Maximum Sentence 5 years./ $250K Fine
Count 36: Failure to make a Tax Return Maximum Sentence 5 years./ $250K Fine
According to the bankruptcy lawyer that is being sued, the Giudices were given standard forms which they filled out. The forms request tax documentation. Joe and Teresa signed forms stating that the tax forms they submitted to the bankruptcy courts were correct. They were forged. The standard procedure is for the bankruptcy court to check with the IRS. The IRS reported back with the information that they had not filed for ten years. CLICK HERE to see all of the IRS documents and W2s they falsified. Teresa was unemployed at this time and gave a variety of false jobs with fake W2s to numerous banks. They did not just “sign the forms they were given” as Joe likes to say. They made up jobs they didn’t have and falsified W2s to show the jobs existed and then signed those forms and gave them to the banks.
Later in the pre-taped GMA interview, Teresa justifies her behavior as follows, ” This is what happened in my eyes. I signed some papers. There was no intent to commit a crime. I didn’t know I was committing a crime. I got indicted. The government saw it differently. I got sentenced. I … served time. I did what I had to do and now I’m moving past it.”
You didn’t know that making up MULTIPLE JOBS YOU NEVER HAD at MULTIPLE banks for MULTIPLE loans and falsifying W-2 forms to show the bank that you had these MULTIPLE PRETEND JOBS was a crime? Bear in mind that Teresa had charges unique to her that Joe didn’t have. One that comes to mind is the rental property income that she failed to disclose in the bankruptcy court along with other hidden assets.
Also in the interview, Teresa was asked if she cried during her strip search and if she was afraid in jail. Tune in to GMA tomorrow morning for those answers. In a teaser today Teresa said, “It wasn’t anything like the Real Housewives of New Jersey” Oh I hope she talks about how she had inmates doing her hair and sewing her uniforms.
Crime continues to pay Teresa Giudice. I wonder how much she was paid by GMA. She will also be on WWHL with Andy Cohen tomorrow night. You will probably need a strong drink for these interviews. Mimosa in the morning perhaps?
