Earlier I ran to the Publix to pick up a few items. Mostly, I went to get some corn meal for my garden soil. So naturally, I totally forgot the damn cornmeal. Fortunately I did remember to pick up TP which was the other pressing issue and some special treat dog food for the mutt. In the checkout line I saw this cover. I swear these tabloids get more and more ridiculous. Are we supposed to think that is Teresa in prison? This is almost as bad as the Bruce Jenner cover on In Touch.
I didn’t have much time to peep at the story but a glancing look showed that they had clearly read Orange is The New Black. When Piper arrived at Danbury lots of ladies made sure to set her up with some essentials to hold her over until her first commissary. She had people lined up to meet her when she arrived and is settling in well. She is getting tons of fan mail and that could actually cause her some drama.
The bottom line is she works all day. Most everyone starts out in the kitchen. It’s one of the lowest jobs there. There are lots of other jobs where you can get off the prison grounds during the day and those are the jobs people really want. Also, in reality, despite the rumors to the contrary, Teresa is not whipping up Skinny Italian recipes for her fellow felons. She scrubbing pots and mopping floors making whatever is on the preset menu. Still, I have a feeling she likes the kitchen job more than most would. Continue reading
Well this is rather heartbreaking. Check out Gia’s new (heavily autotuned) song Just 13. She talks about people tweeting about her mother’s prison sentence like it’s a joke. It’s very haunting and sad, but totally worth a watch. Is that clip at the end on the day her mother left for the big house?
Gia turned 14 officially on January 8th. But the Sunday before Teresa left for prison, the family went to Mass together in the morning and later in the day Teresa threw a fiesta for Gia and all of her friends Continue reading
Um, I’m just going to let you guys discuss this one.
I watched the GMA interview with Teresa’s newest lawyer James Leonard today. There wasn’t anything particularly interesting or new to report. The drive took about 90 minutes. They we an hour early for the check-in time. Teresa ate at a diner along the way. Joe was very somber. Then at the very end, the interviewer asked Leonard “if there is any chance of her getting out early.” His response was, “that will ultimately be up to Judge Salas and/or the Bureau of Prisons, that sentence could potentially be altered down the road.” Um, I pretty sure once you AGREE TO A PLEA DEAL that you don’t get to go back and ask for a better one after surrendering at the prison. I can only assume that he was talking about “good time” which is customary for all federal prison terms that would have her serving only 80% of her time.
I wasn’t going to even bother to post about this interview at all, but I became curious about the new attorney when I saw him on TV. He has a VERY interesting bio that you really must click through to read. The fact that he has been on RHONJ three times is the least interesting part of the whole timeline. Trust me.
Teresa begins 15 months of self examination
Following in the footsteps of Martha Stewart, Teresa Giudice opted for a pre-dawn 3 a.m. self-surrender at Federal Correctional Institution Danbury this morning to avoid paparazzi . I’m a bit shocked she actually was assigned to Danbury as that prison is transitioning to a male prison and the warden went to great lengths to avoid having to take Martha Stewart ten years ago when she did her time.
According to Vicki Hyman of NJ.com , “left her Montville Township mansion shortly after midnight in the back seat of a black SUV driven by her lawyer, James J. Leonard Jr. She surrendered just before 3 a.m., seven hours ahead of her scheduled intake, at the minimum-security prison camp that once housed Lauryn Hill and Leona Helmsley, who both served time for tax evasion. ‘She was ready,’ Leonard said in a statement to NJ Advance Media. “Teresa is a very strong woman, she won’t have any problems in there.’ The early surrender was negotiated with prison officials during a series of phone calls on New Year’s Eve. ‘When we arrived at Danbury, everyone we encountered was extremely courteous and respectful,’ he said. ” Continue reading
Well we might as well start the New Year Off with Teresa Giudice’s ridiculous New Year’s Resolutions. Do I need to remind you that she is going to jail in four days where she will spend the rest of 2015 and then some? Or that you eat what you get in prison when you are told? Because her first resolution is to “stop eating bad carbs. And, well… it just gets weirder from there.
What are your New Years Eve resolutions? I think as of this moment, mine should be “Spring for the expensive champagne.” I’m just saying…
Gia just posted this on Twitter. Is that really Joe? Or is it his brother?
I hate reporting on things that did not happen but y’all read some crazy stuff and then expect me to explain to you why it was bullshit. Let me just remind you about something called “Just because you read something on the Internet doesn’t make it true.” I try to avoid blog wars as much as possible. So when you send me a link asking about the veracity of a site, I generally respond with “I’m sorry, I do not read/am not familiar with that site.” That should be a big enough hint.
But apparently, it is not. But there were plenty of issues with the story you should have been able to side eye on your own. The FEDS do not send “two probation officers, two interns and two local cops” to conduct a federal raid. In fact a “RAID” is something that occurs before the charges are even filed. What the Giudicies could be facing is a seizure of assets. Which will likely occur. It will not occur when a couple of interns drop buy to climb through trap doors in a closet ceiling. It will occur when some US Marshalls arrive. Not a half a band of merry men all named Marco from the probation office of Podunk county New Jersey. Continue reading
WTF is yogurt Ice Cream.? TeeCee?
So, um…. I’m curious what y’all think about this.
Oh Teresa, take a seat. Today (presumably new) attorneys for Teresa Giudice filed a suit in Manhattan Supreme Court, claiming her BANKRUPTCY, attorney, James Kridel, mishandled her original bankruptcy filing in 2010 and did not properly prepare for her testimony. The suit alledges that “Kridel failed to perform a reasonable investigation concerning the petition, schedules and statement of financial affairs.” The suit also says that Teresa feels she was not properly coached on her testimony in bankruptcy court. I guess he didn’t stress enough not to lie like a lying McLiarson. I don’t know who the current lawyer is but Teresa has blamed all her lawyers for her prison time and quite frankly, if her criminal lawyers were not so good she would have been doing much closer to three years. She got off VERY easy.
This is Teresa Giudice who was $11 million dollars in debt four years ago and sinking further every year, spending money lavishly on national television while all the while admitting her kids have no college fund WASTING EVEN MORE MONEY in legal fees. Legal malpractice cases are rarely won. This case will not be the exception. The financial damages Teresa is claiming from her businesses are because she is a convicted felon who committed 41 felons and took a plea deal. She does not have a leg to stand on and is only doling out more money to lawyers at a time when she needs to make sure her children have a roof over their heads. We have been told she is spending time with her children during her last month of freedom. It seems that was a lie. She has been hunting down new lawyers to rack up insane bills with.
Her new lawyers have to know they will not stand a chance with an attorney with Mr. Kridel’s credentials “James Kridel brings a wealth of business, legal, military and life experiences to his law practice. For four years Mr. Kridel served as a special agent for the United States in the field of Counterintelligence, which resulted from his voluntary service with the United States Army during Vietnam. Before starting his own law firm, he was the tax partner at a previous firm. In addition to his Juris Doctorate degree from Rutgers University School of Law at Newark, Mr. Kridel spent five years at New York University towards a Master of Laws (LLM) degree in taxation.”
Does this attorney, whose NYC office is on Madison Avenue somehow “failured to exercise that degree of reasonable knowledge and skill that lawyers of ordinary ability and skill possess?” The fools that filed this lawsuit claim that Kridel caused Theresa to lose income, incur legal fees, lose business deals and face public ridicule. God Dayum this woman is stupid.
UPDATE: I am going to predict this entire case will be thrown out as “untimely” though “ridiculous would” work for me. Mr. Kridel has an office in NJ and another in NY. I was curious as to why the case was filed in Manhattan superior court. The statute of limitations in NJ for legal malpractice is TWO years, in NY it is THREE years. In any case, it would seem that even if Teresa had a case, which she does not, it’s too late to cry about it now.
Please lay down. You are dead. It’s over. Fine! Arrivederci!
Love Tamara Tattles.
Fine. I will pay attention to you ONE MORE TIME. But this is out last breakup conversation. Do you hear me? No more. I’m changing my number. At least there is a psychic. I always like a psychic. Unlike you ungrateful bitches. Oh they are astrologers! We have a surplus of those here at Tamaratattles.com I can envision the
stupid comments already. We will be hearing about rising signs and retrogrades for sure. They are ASTROTwins. Amber just says she has been a “devote Catholic” for the last five years. That’s like five lentil seasons! At least Rosie is there. When she is the exciting addition, we’re in for trouble. The astrotwins read the twins charts first. They are Virgos and people should be careful not to cross them. Amber decides to compromise her “devote” beliefs in about ten seconds. Did you have difficulty with an Aries? She doesn’t know what anyone’s sign is. Melissa is an Aries and Amber was an Aries in a past life…so …okay I can’t with this.
Tre is up next. Taurus with Gemini rising. She is here to learn how to be a provider in this life. The astrotwins tell Tre that she is going to feel the most stress in the beginning of 2015. That is when she is going to the big house! They even say Saturn will be in her legal house. They also say something about changing Joe’s legal team. Interesting. Teresa doesn’t know what a backbone is. The astrotwins say that they will have to spend some time apart but it will make them stronger. Tre is crying. So is Melissa. They say she will have to downsize a bit in 2015.
The twins take Dina lingerie shopping. So they go to Victoria’s Secret. No, wait. No they go to a dildo shop full of crotchless panties. Because, New Jersey. Continue reading
