Teresa Giudice & Joe Giudice’s 39 count indictment actually included lies, not just about real estate, but even about Real Housewives of New Jersey. Prosecutors claimed that Teresa Giudice & Joe Giudice falsified their salaries from Bravo TV back in 2009.

Teresa’s brother Joe and his wife Melissa are sick over the news of the couple’s troubles, but the person who seems to be taking this the hardest is Teresa and Joe’s eldest daughter Gia. We’ve watched Gia grow over the past few years and being able to recognize what’s going on with her parents, as she gets older, is really taking its toll on her. It’s clear, by watching the show, that Gia is fearful of her parents leaving and her life falling apart. On a sweet note, in one episode of the show this season, Gia tells her father that she wants to grow up to be a criminal attorney. Joe Giudice seems touched and says, “We need those.”

Joe often lets politically-incorrect words and racial slurs roll off his tongue on the show, without even a thought and many viewers, including big wig Andy Cohen, have been offended by his use of the word “faggot” over the years. Both Joe and Teresa have had to explain themselves many times for this. Fellow cast members have said they don’t agree with the words Joe uses, but say it’s because of upbringing and ignorance, that it’s not malicious. Teresa often stands up for her husband, but says she tells him he shouldn’t use those words. But, the fact of the matter is, Joe is a grown man and makes his own decisions.
