Teresa’s legal issues are not only affecting her and her family, they might also cost the other New Jersey housewives their jobs!
We betcha former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub is laughing hysterically somewhere. As Teresa Giudice and husband Joe’s legal drama hurts their family and could even land the couple in prison (for over 50 years!), the wild indictment’s after-effects extend even further. It’s also possible that all the other ladies on the show could be unemployed soon, as Teresa’s indictment has reportedly put the show in jeopardy.
Why ‘Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ Could Be Canceled
Bravo executives are reportedly mortified by the couple’s shenanigans and the bad press surrounding their family who are clearly the breakout stars of the RHONJ franchise, according to the New York Daily News.
“Nobody wants to see their talent in this kind of a situation,” a network source told the paper.
Additionally, Bravo wants nothing to do with Teresa anymore. Until the money fraud charges were laid out, the 41-year-old reality star had reportedly been pitching a spinoff show to the network; all plans on that production have already been cancelled.
“They are not interested,” the source adds. “Bravo only spins off happy situations — marriages, baby news. Not prison.”
Teresa & Joe Giudice Could Face 50 Or More Years In Prison
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Teresa’s life crumbled before her very eyes as a judge threw a massive amount — 39 to be exact — of legal charges at her and her husband, including bank fraud and tax evasion! If convicted on all of these crimes, the couple’s new reality could be behind life bars for over half a century!
The couple has been accused of massively defrauding the IRS as well as several banks between 2001 and 2008, TMZ reports.
It was announced in court that the Jersey drama king and queen also allegedly illegally obtained several mortgages and other loans from more than one bank by knowingly exaggerating their incomes.
Oh, and it doesn’t stop there. Teresa and Joe even allegedly withheld serious information about their net worth from a U.S. bankruptcy trustee after filing for Chapter 7, including what Teresa made from starring on Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Now it’s YOUR turn to sound off, HollywoodLifers. Should Bravo hang the other ladies out to dry just because of Teresa and Joe’s dirty laundry?
