Teresa Giudice Files Divorce Papers, Plans To Divorce Joe So Bravo Doesn’t Fire Her

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is trying everything she can to remain a reality TV star. Despite the fact that she and her husband, Joe Giudice, are less than a week away from their big day in court, Teresa is reportedly planning to divorce her husband as soon as the judge hands down the details of their sentences on October 2.

In Touch states that Giudice is working with her lawyer to get lesser charges and home confinement. The magazine’s sources state that Teresa already had her attorney draw up divorce papers, which will be finalized after their sentencing next Thursday. As previously reported in The Inquisitr, Joe Guidice could face up to four years in prison and possible deportation back to Italy after he completes his sentence.

Celeb Dirty Laundry reports that Teresa, who is likely panicking because the couple’s bank accounts are running low, wants to divorce Joe to “rebuild her image” so Bravo will keep her on the show. She reportedly believes that fans will sympathize with her if she portrays herself “as a victim” on the show.

Will the Real Housewives of New Jersey really get a ratings boost if Teresa appears on the show as a struggling single mother of four under house arrest? Or would fans shake their heads in disgust when they realize she is just trying to make money so she can buy more $2,500 purses?

To add another dimension to Teresa Giudice’s real life drama, In Touch recently reported that the RHONJ star is pregnant with baby number five. The gossip magazine claims that Teresa would “make millions” having her baby, while in jail or on home confinement. However, Us Weekly reports that Giudice’s crisis manager, Wendy Feldman, has confirmed that Teresa is definitely not pregnant, and would never try to get knocked up just to avoid jail time.

There is no doubt that there will be a buzz online about Teresa and Joe Giudice over the next few weeks. Not only is their sentencing date coming up next week, but the taping of the Bravo’s Real Housewives reunion will follow a few days later.

Do you think Teresa Giudice will divorce Joe so Bravo will sign her to another season of RHONJ, or will she be too busy trying to make her home confinement bracelet look fashionable?
