Yesterday, I tried to sort out some false rumors floating around. I generally do not address them at all but so many of you were asking it was just easier to make a post or two. I covered the RHOA rumors here and the RHONJ rumors here. I was amazed that TMZ would run such a factually incorrect story and was curious as to what this “document from the bankruptcy judge” was really about. Today I know.
Here is what triggered the erroneous reporting. Back in 2010, the Giudices filed for bankruptcy. Because they are lying liars who lie, they hid the few assets they had from the bankruptcy court. This made the court mad. Both Joe and Tre invoked their right not to incriminated themselves. Then the court told them they could take a short leap from a tall building. Their request to discharge their debt was DENIED. No bankruptcy was allowed.
Since then, Dudley Doright bankruptcy trustee has been working on “the paperwork” at a glacial pace, as one does when one works for the government. So the other day, Dudley turned in his paperwork that said he was able to get $15,000 in liquid assets from the Giudices. He kept half for court fees and the other $7,500 went toward other legal fees associates with the discharge. AND NOW THAT HE IS DONE, because the government always gets first dibs in these matters, their creditors (aka the banks) can now go after whatever assets they can get. There were no debts discharged by the court, so the Giudice’s remain liable for all of their debt.
So THE REAL STORY is pretty much the exact opposite of what was being reported by TMZ. The real story is that the Giudices are finally about to lose their house and cars.
UPDATE: A tiny bit of non news today. Joe has a hearing on June 2nd for his drivers license fraud stuff. Which doesn’t matter because they won’t try Joe or strike a plea deal until the Feds get done with him.
