The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has grown tired of the “bogus stories” going around and enlisted her attorney, James Leonard, Jr., to set the record straight.
In a new interview with E! News, Leonard slams those creating the stories, and threatens legal action against those selling them.
“The misinformation being published by various media outlets regarding my client and the details of her incarceration are blatantly false. Whoever is buying these bogus stories, you’re wasting your money; whoever is reading them, you’re reading pure fiction; and whoever is selling them, legal action will be taken.”
Since the Real Housewives of New Jersey star entered prison on January 5, there have been reports claiming she is unhappy with the food and being bombarded by inmates who want to get close to her.
“The reality is that Teresa is acclimating well to her current surroundings and she is keeping to herself. She has told me repeatedly that she is doing fine and that she is appreciative of the support she has gotten from her fans. She asks everyone to respect her privacy and that of her family during the coming weeks and months and she looks forward to being reunited with Joe and her girls.”
As for the reason behind Joe Giudice’s missed visit over the weekend, Leonard claimed it was a result of his recent guilty plea.
“There was an issue getting [Joe] approved, because he’s a co-defendant in Teresa’s case, extra steps have to be taken to get him approved to visit her. The process is in the works but it wasn’t done in time for last weekend.”
One thing Leonard didn’t discuss were the reports of a Teresa Giudice tell-all, which, as the Inquisitr reported, hit the web on January 14.
According to Radar Online, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has been writing a tell-all book, which will chronicle her time behind bars at the federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut.
“Teresa believes a book about how she coped with being in prison, and the obstacles she faced, would be a huge hit. Having already published several cookbooks, Teresa is touting this as a memoir that anyone could relate to. Teresa admires the way in which Martha Stewart handled her business after being released from prison, and would like to follow in that fashion.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been on hiatus since last year’s sixth season.
