Wait, Joe was cute when they met! #FBF
I continue to be fascinated with Teresa Giudice’s “attorney” and his love of media attention. James Leonard particularly seems to like selling stories to People to answer questions that no one is asking. Today’s breaking story on People is entitled ” The Surprising Reason Teresa Giudice Can’t Visit Her Husband Joe In Prison More Frequently.” Which is a poor title not just because of the unnecessary length but because in fact, Teresa is allowed to visit Joe as frequently as she would like Despite tis fact, Leonard goes into great detail about why Teresa is not visiting more often while claiming that she goes every other weekend.
Here is a partial list of “reasons” why Teresa isn’t visiting more according to Leonard, “Where he is, you get a certain number of points every month and each visit counts as a point. Weekend visits are considered more points,” Leonard explains. “So because he also has his mother and sister coming to visit, and Teresa can’t go during the week because the girls are in school, they’re having to do it every other weekend.”
Except none of this is accurate.
Working Hard for the Money!
Nene Leakes got her hustle on this weekend working in Columbia, South Carolina doing her So Nasty, So Rude tour where she trash talks the other RHOAs. Make those coins however you can, Nene! Shockingly, Sonja Morgan is also working. Her photo looks like she is in Brooklyn somewhere but she’s on a Universal Studio set in Hollywood filming something. Ramona Singer has wandered into a big summer party somewhere, seemingly alone…
Theresa Giudice and her brood on down the shore in Jersey. So are Joe and Melissa Gorga. It doesn’t look like they are running in the same crowd though.

Sorry, I have too much going on today to try to explain the RHONJ trailer with interpretive dance and sign language. I can’t grasp why Bravo guards AN ADVERTISEMENT for their show like gold and doesn’t make it embeddable for all. So I will do a bit of purple pen on the press release and call it a day.
NEW YORK – May 24, 2016 – There won’t be any lazy days of summer when Bravo Media’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” returns for its much anticipated seventh season on Sunday, July 10 at 8pm ET/PT. Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are joined by new Housewives, Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker, along with the return of a true Jersey veteran, Jacqueline Laurita. Also appearing this season are sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri.. Wait whut? What happened to the lesbian couple? They aren’t mentioned at all? I thought they were downgraded after the fight in Vermont (that was Jac’s fault) but no mention at all? So you can hit people all day long in Atlanta, but not Jac Laurita? If they were cut out, then why were they at the finale filming that Jac refused to show up for?
Vick Gunvalson has dated quite a few men since her split with Brooks and she shares quite a few of them on Instagram. This latest one has not to my knowledge been named yet, presumably to avoid all the drilling down by websites for background information. A few of the ones in between Brooks and this guy did not pass the prying eyes of the internet to be sure.
This one seems to be just part of the family. I’m not sure what the details are on Briana’s husband but it seems like I heard something about him getting a discharge for some sort of disability? I could be wrong about that. At any rate, whether Briana has finally gotten the hell out of Oklahoma permanently, as seemed to be the plan, or is just back in Orange County for filming RHOOC, it seems the whole gang is one big happy family at this Angels game last night.
Teresa Gives FANTASTIC Bagel Head!
There are a few little things to report on Teresa’s Giudice’s court case against her former bankruptcy lawyer, James Kridel. Personally, I find Teresa’s constant attempt to find anyone to blame for her actions sad and ridiculous.
Kridel feels much the same way I do and asked the judge to throw out the case. His stance is obvious, Teresa went to jail for mortgage and bankruptcy fraud. Even it if he did something to cause her bankruptcy filing to be fraudulent, she had lots of federal charges not related to the bankruptcy at all. Like all those fraudulent meetings with bankers where she produced fake W-2s from jobs she knew full well she didn’t have. Teresa has lied repeatedly about her assets, and most importantly she signed documents she reviewed that left off most of her actual assets during the bankruptcy filing and she signed a plea deal!
Despite all of that, a judge ruled against Kridel and is allowing Teresa to go on with her ridiculous case. To me this is a non-story. Idiots can file whatever cases they feel like paying lawyers for with little to any actual legal standing. I read this information and decided it was not particularly newsworthy and didn’t change a thing. The case is still moving forward at the usual glacial pace.
The oddball lawyer , James Leonard, who has sidled up to Joe and Teresa Giudice has sold another story to People Magazine. He went to visit Joe yesterday and say that Joe is doing as well as can be expected, “I would say that he is adjusting very well. I know that he misses Teresa and their four daughters immensely, but Joe will get through this, just like Teresa did.”
Joe’s mother elderly mother, Filomena and his sister Maria were also at the prison visiting yesterday. That must be a long day for his mother with over three hours round trip of travel time, and the time it takes to get checked in, and then the actual visitation time. Leonard’s arrival probably ended their visit.
Teresa has applied for a waiver of the rule that prohibits felons from visiting inmates and that paperwork is still in process. In a spouse situation like this, it is usually just a formality regarding the paperwork. Leonard says, “Teresa will be visiting with the girls as quickly as she is approved by the prison, which should be within the next week.” I think that is probably an optimistic guess on when she will be allowed to show up, but I do feel confident that Leonard will contact People again with any minor development.
