#RHONJ Felon Update: Teresa Giudice Hires Private Detective From Behind Bars To Spy On Joe?

Posted on Feb 16 2015 - 2:58pm by Dani-K


Convicted felon and “Real Housewife of New Jersey” star, Teresa Giudice, is said to be wondering if a certain mouse is at play while she’s away.

OK! Magazine is reporting that from behind bars, Teresa has hired a private investigator to keep tabs on her husband and daughters with she’s serving her 15-month sentence at Danbury.

You might be wondering how this is done behind bars. Are detective services sold in the commissary? Although Teresa’s reps are denying the story, supposedly, Teresa had a cousin make the call to a personal protection specialist on her behalf.

The source spilled the tea,

“Teresa senses things are not right, and she wants to make sure the kids are OK.”

Teresa’s friends say she knows her husband has a penchant for other women and strip clubs. He’s even been busted on RHONJ. Remember that magical trip to Nappa?

The insider continued,

“She knows that Joe is a cheater. Especially now that she’s in jail – I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s a VIP at every strip club in Jersey.”

Reportedly, the detective’s job is to take “as many pictures as possible” of Joe and to also keep an eye on her four daughters, “how they look, if they’re eating and following their schedules.” Although this source is saying the detective wasn’t told why Teresa wants these photos, there is speculation that she’s collecting evidence for a divorce.

The insider added,

“But this is what people do. From what I gather, Joe wants out. But he’s trying to save face in the media, because [he] can’t be seen as a horrible father.”

But it’s okay to be seen as a horrible husband and a horrible citizen? Oh wait, scratch that last one. He’s not a citizen.

    It could be true, but who knows. I think Teresa knows he cheats, she just doesn’t want him to cheat with certain people I think. If Joe was smart he would start the divorce proceedings right now while he’s free. This way he can get things set up for himself and the kids before she gets out and divorces him (which we all know she will do).

    • Cindy

      Then Caroline can say I told you so!! When she predicted a divorce “you heard it here first” lol lol

  • WestCoastFeed

    I read the OK Magazine article and it includes the name of the detective she hired. But it doesn’t name the cousin who called him. Teresa does have more Gorga cousins than just he Wakiles.

    • ann

      I have a hard time believing this one, if this detective is workimg for them, why woild he commenf on a case he is working. Would it not blow the case.

      • WestCoastFeed

        His name is Mark Behar and his bio is available on the internet. Maybe Teresa thinks she can keep Joe on the straight and narrow if he knows she has someone checking up on him,

        • ann

          Thats a possibility, but I would think if she was doing that she would not want him talking to the news. I honestly not know if je cheated and its their businees, but if he has then then this coming out in the news would make him more cautious.

  • Yolie

    Who cares about the felon and her family. Her career is over now. I can’t wait for her to fade into oblivion.

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    oh bull…….just a ploy to keep her in the limelight

  • Chloe

    This would not surprise me in the least. Teresa has always been jealous and with her being incarcerated she must be going out her mind worrying about Joe’s goings and comings.

    • Marsbars09

      Agreed. Tre can’t control sh*t being locked up.

  • WestCoastFeed

    BTW, Gia’s talent manager has put out a tweet to the mothers of her young clients asking fs any of them is interested in being cast as a NJ housewife. Is NJ having a really hard time casting for next season?

    • Desperate times, call for desperate measures. Anybody with an ounce of dignity would never go on reality TV.

      • Marsbars09

        True dat. Nothing good comes out of being associated with the Housewives franchise.

  • She Stinks!

    Not much she can do about Juicy cheating, since she’s in prison! I hope he cheats every single day and is boozing it up with cheap strippers!

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    Awww boo-effin’-hoo! So sorry Tre. Can’t play my tiny violin for you. Must have broken it that last time I flipped a table!

    & how & who is paying for this PI?

    • Wrenniethepooh

      I smell story plot….so my guess is maybe Bravo. Not enough time to really start cat fighting with other castmates…so she’s gotta have something to bring to that flipped table lol

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Wrennie, you are probably right. Have to get the viewers interested in seeing Tre again. So why not go for the “Juicy is a big fat cheater” angle. Like this is news? LMBO!

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    And how is she paying for this??

    • WestCoastFeed

      How are they even paying their utility bills?

      • Rochelle Barozzi

        RIGHT??? Joe sure isn’t working…

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Rochelle! That’s the million dollar question.

      • cait

        Isn’t that the 13 million dollar question ?

        • Marsbars09

          If we’re really specific it’s closer to a $14 million dollar question.

          • cait

            Don’t split hairs ! Juicy sent me almost $1m in anticipation of “services” while the Tree is locked up !

      • Rochelle Barozzi

        Hey sweetie! Yep, millions of million dollar question LOL

  • nn

    I don’t know who Teresa thinks she’s kidding. Of course, Juicy is cheating he was cheating when she was on the outside. Now that she is locked up and he is about to be, there is no doubt he is getting as much action as he can before there literally is nothing available, or at least nothing desirable available.

  • italiano bambino

    All her life is like a soap opera


  • Marsbars09

    Tre is so crazy. If this story is accurate and Joe is messing around there’s not a damn thing she can do about it. She has control over NADA while she’s locked up.

    • italiano bambino

      Tre wishes she could detached joe little one and take it with her o.O

  • Norrth

    Unless Joe has someone else to put money on his books, he might want to behave.

  • cait

    I can’t see this being true, but could be a story the Tree put out, herself, to show Mojoe she’s the one in control as she has been all these years ! Just a thought !

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    O/T for a sec.

    • Marsbars09

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        YW. ❤

    • That’s terrific news! Tell KJ I send love and I’m praying for her family.

  • TartLemon

    Where does Teresa have the $$$ stashed to do any spending especially from PRISON for stealing $$$ through blatant FRAUD? She has no reportable income except for the few $$ a day she earns at the prison job. What an IDIOT!

    • Hi TartLemon. Clearly, they have a stash of cash somewhere to be able to pay their utilities. We know they’re not paying their mortgage.

      • fred

        they were not smart enough to save 5 cents ,they are 13.5 million dollars in debt and you dumdasses think they SAVED MONEY

  • Karma

    sorry I don’t believe this story some people like attention & this so called cousin is one of them. Plus how will she pay them . I don’t doubt Joe is a cheat & she us concerned bout her girls & deep down she knows joe has cheated or will cheat but as for this source I call BS

  • whose gonna do my hair!

    What’s she paying him/her with? Promises? haha!

  • Fritz the. At

    Teresa is spending all her time trying to stay relevant by selling stories to 3 tier gossip rags for $5 to $10 k a pop. At the grocery store while waiting in line, I noticed that teresa is nowhere to be found on the usual gossip papers. She is becoming irrelevant and it’s only been a month. By summer she will be teresa who? She has to remain in the public eye and that will get harder as time goes by. Remember her lawyer’s plea to judge at sentencing, “Teresa has no skills, no way to support herself if not for reality TV. She risks irrelevancy if she goes to prison.

    That is coming true. How many stories about working out, eating snacks etc are we going to see. I predict a leak about a prison fight coming. She will sell anything to stay on the covers. She will use her family until they are bruised and battered. It will backfire.

    • TartLemon

      Teresa’s ceded all the adult/parent authority and power to 14 yr old Gia. Does moronic Teresa honestly believe that in a year when she’s released, things will go back to the Teresa parent, Gia child relationship of before? Uhhh, NO! Gia will be ‘Things changed. THIS is how we do it now and it’s worked just fine while YOU WERE GONE.’

      Teresa is the one who’s keeping it in the forefront that she’s in PRISON. All these items sold to the tabs, Gia’s interviews, etc. She’s a CRIMINAL who’s doing time in PRISON. Even the Tre-Huggers aren’t giving a shit anymore.
