Teresa and Joe Giudice may be convicted felons who defrauded over $5 million from banks and owe creditors $13.4 million but that’s not stopping them from further lining their pockets.

The nefarious duo and stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey are cooking the books again! According to, the dynamic duo recently purchased a partnership in “Jersey Meatball Co,” a restaurant in North Bergen, New Jersey.



Jersey Meatball Co. is an existing establishment that specializes in savory Italian style meatballs. From the online reviews, the restaurant has a stellar reputation, serves great food and excellent customer service. Jersey Meatball Co has been in existence for over 50 years and aligning their brand with Teresa and Joe Giudice could potentially damage their name.


Teresa and Joe Giudice were indicted on 41-counts of felony fraud in 2013. Then in March 2014, pled guilty to defrauding the IRS, stealing millions from various banks, defrauding Bankruptcy Courts’, loan application fraud and perjury. Shortly after that on April 8th, their Bankruptcy petition was finalized, revealing the RHONJ stars owe creditors a staggering $13.4 million dollars. Sentencing in the felony fraud case is scheduled for July 8th.

On Jersey Meatball Facebook page, there is a video of Joe Giudice and his dad cooking in the cooking. 

Reportedly, Teresa and Joe will feature Kathy Wakile’s mothers Teresa’s secret meatball recipe at the restaurant. And of course, the BYOB wine of choice will Fabellini. Teresa plans to asks customers to purchase and bring Fabellini along for their dining experience.
