Joe Giudice Welcomes Teresa Home With $90K Lexus: Are They Really Broke?

Teresa Giudice is home from prison, and it turns out that her husband, Joe, welcomed her home with a new car. Since Joe isn’t allowed to drive, obviously they need something nice for Teresa to use around town. She is under house arrest for a few months, though, so she won’t be using it until at least February.

TMZ shared that Joe bought his wife a car that is worth $90,000. That certainly doesn’t sound like a family that is struggling and having a hard time paying their bills. At one point, the Giudice’s were even close to losing their home. Now everyone is questioning whether or not Joe and Teresa Giudice are really broke.


Before Teresa went to jail, the Giudices were struggling to pay back $400,000 in restitution. They made it seem like this was really hard for them and were even going to have to sell stuff to make it work. Now it turns out Joe was somehow able to buy a $90,000 Lexus for his wife. It has been confirmed that Joe was the one shopping around for a new car, and it was seen in the driveway with a big bow on it. This was not from Bravo either. So how was Joe Giudice able to buy her a $90,000 car if money is tight?

Even though Bravo didn’t buy the car, it sounds like that is how Joe was able to pay for this car. Us Magazine confirmed that Bravo has been filming Joe and Teresa Giudice for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. When Teresa got home to the kids and Joe, the cameras were all around. You know that Joe and Teresa are making good money for letting this all be filmed, and fans are going to probably get to see it on the upcoming season of RHONJ. There is a chance that Joe and Teresa could be doing another special instead, but that hasn’t been confirmed. A source shared how excited Teresa was to be heading back home with Joe and the girls.

“Teresa is counting down the minutes. She’s still working out, reading and praying… but she can’t wait to get back in her own kitchen, bed and closet! She’s more anxious now than ever.”

People shared that Joe’s wife, Teresa Giudice, let them have exclusive photos of her after her prison release. Joe’s wife looks ready to be home and is very happy. You have to assume that they had to pay the Giudice’s for these pictures, which, of course, is more income to help buy that new Lexus Joe purchased Teresa before she came home. Teresa was able to leave prison in full makeup and got out at 5:01 a.m. today. Now, she is back home with Joe and the girls until it is time for Joe to leave for prison. They will get to spend the holidays together this year, but after that, Joe will be heading to prison himself. Most families don’t get the luxury of separating their jail time the way that the Giudice’s did.


Are you surprised to see that Joe bought Teresa Giudice a $90,000 Lexus to welcome her home? Do you think that all of their financial problems are over now? Going to prison was awful, but it sounds like a few good paydays are going to end up coming out of it. Sound off in the comments and below, and don’t miss this couple when they are back on The Real Housewives of New Jersey next season on Bravo.
