Recently, Real Housewives of New Jersey (RHONJ) stars Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice spoke about their 39-count fraud indictment on “Watch What Happens Live”. Although this couple put on a strong united front for viewers, it’s obvious that they are in trouble. How will they fare? Here are a five early predictions.
Prediction #1: Someone’s going to jail.
These days, authorities in the legal system routinely send celebrities to jail – just ask Paris Hilton, Wesley Snipes, DMX and Amanda Bynes. Being high profile can work against you. Therefore, based on their public image, at least one of the Giudice’s is going to the pokey.
Prediction #2: Joe Giudice will take the fall.
Yes, he’s a cheater (allegedly) and so-so as a husband, but this guy is also very traditional. He won’t sleep well at night knowing the mother of his children is rotting away in prison. So Joe will take the fall for everything. If you paid attention to his and Teresa’s comments on “Watch What Happens Live”, the set up is already in motion. She’s pretending to be completely ignorant about their finances and conversely he’s taking full responsibility.
Prediction #3: Teresa won’t get off RHONJ.
At this point, most people in Teresa Giudice’s shoes would kick reality TV aside. However, in her case, this medium is the only way to support her family. Being the star of RHONJ is what drives her brand. For this reason, she’ll keep giving fans what they love most – DRAMA – but ask Andy Cohen for NeNe Leakes money to do it.
Prediction #4: They won’t divorce right away.
Give Tre some credit. Because of Joe’s sacrifice for the family (see prediction #2), she’ll stay married to him longer than RHONJ fans expect. Only when the timing is right will she move on to divorce him. Naturally, Teresa may have a male friend or two on the side, but her affairs will be on the low.
Prediction #5: The Giudice’s will downsize.
Regardless of the outcome, Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice will downsize their current lifestyle. Their indictment for fraud on 39-counts was a wake up call, one that even they can’t ignore. Whatever pride or foolishness that kept them from making this move in the past won’t anymore.
Surprised? The above are five early predictions of how the Giudice’s will fare through their current legal battle. It’s about to get real folks. Stay tuned to RHONJ to see how everything plays out.
