Teresa Giudice is reportedly causing drama from prison. As she serves her 15-month term, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has been accused of selling stories about her family.
According to a new report, Giudice claimed her brother, Joe Gorga, and his wife, Melissa, were the reason she was behind bars. However, in a new report, a source revealed there was no truth to the rumors regarding the Gorga’s possible involvement in Giudice’s fraud case.
“This is complete BS,” a source close to the show told Real Mr. Housewife on February 6.
“Teresa is STILL trying to sabotage her brother from behind bars. It’s honestly very sad. This story is clearly fabricated by her team,” a second source added. “Teresa is seething with jealousy that the Gorga’s are free while she is behind bars and her husband will soon be in jail as well.”
“She is furious over the fact that they may end up on Housewives again without her. Due to this, she is desperate to continue to try to defame them at any cost.”
Although Teresa Giudice hasn’t gotten the boot from The Real Housewives of New Jersey, her co-star, Jim Marchese, recently spoke out, encouraging Bravo to remove the felon from their cast. As the Inquisitr reported, Marchese claimed it would be bad judgment for Bravo to keep her aboard.
“I don’t think she should be on the show any longer,” Marchese told Confidenti@l. “I think glorifying a felon’s life is counterproductive, and I don’t think it’s appropriate.”
While Teresa Giudice may be viewers’ main draw to the series, Marchese insisted her time on the show should be cut short because of her recent charges for bank and wire fraud.
“I think we could have (imprisoned Ponzi schemer) Bernie Madoff on the show. He has good name recognition also, and he’s done things and I’m sure there would be some curiosity, but (the show) is about families and dynamics. It isn’t about seeing how individuals can work our system, rip off the American people, not pay taxes and then live a lifestyle that pretty much no one I know has.”
Teresa Giudice is only one month into her sentence, but so far, sources claim she’s doing well and staying busy.
According to the latest report, via Radar Online, the reality star is working on a tell-all book about her time behind bars, which she will release after her term is complete.
“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.”
The source added, “[Teresa Giudice] admires the way in which Martha Stewart handled her business after being released from prison, and would like to follow in that fashion.”
