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.
In other news, a week or so ago a ridiculous site made up two stories about Joe showing up drunk to his self-surrender and being booked in to “maximum security” and also that Apollo got 18 months in “maximum security” for having a cell phone. Both stories were complete horseshit. Fort Dix is a low security facility. There is no “maximum security” there, nor would either Joe or Apollo’s white collar crimes be appropriate for an actual maximum security facility. There were so many other errors in the stories that they were laughable.
Leonard confirms this calling the story pure fiction. Leonard says, “I was with Joe all morning up until the time he was taken into custody and I can tell you with absolute certainty that he was not drunk.”
Joe and Apollo appear to be in the same pod at Fort Dix. Leonard says, “Joe said Apollo was an absolute gentleman and helped him get acclimated and that they had a nice talk.” Well isn’t that special. It’s so nice they have a friend in each other.
Somehow this Danielle Staub gif seems quite appropriate.
Don’t you agree?
