Without a doubt, Teresa and Joe Giudice are the most dysfunctiona
In her new book, “Standing Strong,” — The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, claims she’s pissed with her husband for sending them both to prison, being a drunk and his jealousy.
“I’m still not happy with Joe,” she writes in her tell-all, out October 5. “Actually, that’s the understatement of the friggin’ century. And I’m not going to hide it anymore!”
The couple have been married for almost 18-years and in 2014 the nefarious duo were sentenced to prison on multiple fraud charges. Joe, is currently serving a 41-month sentence in a New Jersey federal prison. In December 2015, Teresa was released from federal prison after serving 11 months of a 15-month sentence but she has always maintained her innocence — placing blame solely on Joe — she continues that narrative in her new expose.
“I’m not going to lie, that really pisses me off,” she wrote. “He says he thought that his accountant was filing our taxes. Really? But Joe didn’t check things! That’s what makes me so upset. You have to be on top of your sh*t, and he wasn’t.”
She describes a dysfunctional family dynamic behind the mansion walls of their Montville, New Jersey home, after the couple was sentenced to prison in 2014.
“He likes to be the strong man. Only he wasn’t that strong. He drowned his sorrows in alcohol from the day we were sentenced to the day he left for prison.”
The mom of four, throws her husband under the bus and describes Joe’s drinking as out of control.
“All the kids and I saw was his drinking too much, all the time. He was constantly drunk.”
Then she drives her car over Joe, throws it in reverse and backs it up over his injured body — showing no remorse for the role she played in their financial scandal.
“I didn’t feel sorry for him, though not for one second,” she rips her man.”I did my time, and now he has to do his.”
Although the government proved that Teresa was a willful participant in the couple’s fraud convictions — the reality diva continues to point the finger at Joe for everything.
“He was the one who got us into all this bullsh*t in the first place. He can blame me all he wants, which he does, very often.”
Joe blames Teresa’s lust for fame (by appearing on The Real Housewives of New Jersey), as the reason for the government ending their 10-year crime spree — which netted the fraudsters over $5 million in stolen monies, goods and services.
“He says that none of this ever would have happened if we weren’t on the show, which is because of me, but I know that’s not true,” she writes. “It was his fault, because he didn’t do things correctly. And now we’re paying for his bad judgement. We’re all paying for it.”
Teresa attributes a lack of communication as the root of their marital issues.
“Looking back, I now realize that Joe and I didn’t communicate well with each other in our marriage, all too often not saying things that needed to be said.”
To add insult to injury — the reality diva admits she’s, “happy” Joe’s in the slammer and adds, “he’s losing tons of weight in prison. He’s not drinking alcohol, and he’s eating a lot less since the food is horrible.”
Previously, the fraud broad refuted divorce rumors, Teresa told The Daily Dish in August that she has no plans to divorce despite recent rumors.
“I am not getting divorced. The truth is I miss my husband and cannot wait for him to come home,” she said, referencing her husband’s 41-month prison sentence at FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey. “We talk everyday on the phone and I go and see him a few times per month. My daughters miss their daddy just as much as I do. We all love him very much,” she wrote in her book.
However, she’s humming a different tune in her new book and divorce looks very possible.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen. I mean, do I see Joe and me together in ten years? Do I see us growing old together? I don’t know. Maybe. Maybe not.”
As reported, Joe’s deportation after serving 41-months in federal prison is unavoidable — upon his release in March 2019, the father of four will be handed over to the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to begin deportation proceedings.
