Counting down the days until her 15-month prison sentence starts, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice decided it was the perfect time to show off her skiing skills in her most fabulous attire. So the 42-year-old reality TV star added extra eyeliner, layered on the mascara, and grabbed the kids to head off to the Crystal Springs Resort and Spa in New Jersey, reported People magazine.
Huddling with friends, Teresa allowed her children to ski without her supervision on the slopes.
Giudice’s actions made it appear that she was feeling stressed about her future, said a source.
“[Teresa looked] super stressed out. She kept uncomfortably rubbing her neck.”
Holding true to Real Housewives maestro Andy Cohen’s theory that everything’s better with alcohol, Teresa and her buddies gulped down a round of Fireball shots.
In addition to giving advice on alcohol, Cohen orchestrates the Real Housewives reunions and is familiar with Giudice’s plight. As the Inquisitr reported, he even said he might visit Teresa behind bars.
“Maybe. It’s in Connecticut, and I love Connecticut,” said Andy cheerfully.
Adding to her stress, Teresa’s crisis manager recently resigned after Giudice said she wanted to go to the real world version of Orange is the New Black, as shown below.
The prison sentence results from Teresa’s March 4 guilty plea to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. It begins Jan. 5. However, some said she could have gotten a more stringent sentence.
Teresa has admitted that she’s worried about her children, reported EnStarz. She is concerned that her husband Joe won’t care for them adequately, said sources.
“Teresa has become so desperate, she’s now considering giving her kids to friends! Teresa’s friends know he’s useless and have offered to take the kids. The trouble is, no one can handle four extra girls for that long.”
As for Joe, he also entered a guilty plead to conspiracy and fraud counts. After Teresa returns home, he will start his three-and-a-half-year sentence. He might also be deported back to Italy after that sentence has ended.
But both Joe and Teresa claimed that they didn’t really understand the ramifications, reported E! News. Talking with Andy Cohen during his special Watch What Happens Live interview, she blamed her lawyer.
“I didn’t fully understand it,” she said. “I thought my lawyer was going to fight for me. I mean, that’s what lawyers do. I don’t know. That’s why you hire an attorney. You put it in their hands. I mean, whatever they wanted from me—believe me—I followed their direction. Whatever they wanted, I gave them. I’m not trying to hide anything.”
And Joe said he thought his wife would be safe.
“I even took all blame and full responsibility for everything. It wasn’t like she really had a part…in my businesses. Whatever,” he shrugged.
