Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has been sentenced 15 months while her husband Joe Guidice has been sentenced 41 months in a federal prison.

TMZ reports:
She will begin serving the sentence January 5. She’ll complete her sentence and then Joe will begin his.

Joe must also pay $414,588.90 in restitution and enter an alcohol treatment program in prison.

Before handing down the sentence … the judge chewed out Joe and Teresa for being dishonest with their finances — pointing out the government had to dig up details they should have disclosed up front.

Both Joe and Teresa dissolved into tears as the judge tore into them.

Teresa made a plea to the judge to give her house arrest instead of time behind bars so she could care for her kids. Her husband Joe will spend 41 months behind bars, and she says their 4 kids will have to be split up among their relatives if they both serve.

But the judge said the sentences would be staggered, so when one is in prison, the other can perform parental duties.

Before sentencing … Teresa begged the judge for leniency, saying she is in a deep depression and her life is now ruined. She says all she cares about is her kids and she has no interest anymore in TV shows.

She also said she didn’t care about handbags … a reference to the fact that she was photographed last month with a really expensive bag when she was monkeying around with bankruptcy.

The judge wasn’t buying it, saying … “I need to send a message. In the eyes of the law it doesn’t matter who you are. There are consequences to pay.”

Both Teresa and Joe were convicted of wire and bankruptcy fraud. According to the sentencing guidelines, Teresa should have received a sentences of 21 – 27 months. Prosecutors recommended 21 — saying if the judge wasn’t hard it would show being famous counts. Nonetheless the judge went way more lenient.


Below is a video of them leaving court today. If you listen closely, you can hear someone ask “Teresa, have you been watching Orange Is The New Black?” Ouch! I hope their children are okay more than anything.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Brawl


Real Housewives of Atlanta semi cast member Brandon DeShazer (Kenya Moore’s assistant) was roughed up last night by Phaedra Parks’ husband Apollo Nida– all over beef stemming from the infamous workout video.

Backstory: On the show, Parks and Nida had an idea of a work out production, Donkey Booty, Moore and Brandon had agreed to produce the video starring Phaedra, but instead produced their own video, Stallion Booty.

According to witnesses, Apollo flew into a rage and “violently attacked” Brandon at a party that was being filmed for the upcoming season, and it was all caught on tape.

Apollo had to be restrained by 7 male crew members before finally retreating. Apparently Apollo was pissed blaming Brandon and Kenya for stabbing Phaedra in the back.

Apollo has a different story, there was a fight on the set, he tried to break it up and got attacked by Brandon. Apollo says at that point he defended himself and everything got out of control.
