'RHONJ' Joe Giudice's Court Date Set & Things Just Got Really Real

teresa giudice joe giudiceThey've become such caricatures of themselves that it's hard to remember that these are real people. I wonder if that's what Teresa Giudice and husband Joe Giudice had in mind when they signed up to be a part of The Real Housewives of New Jersey -- if becoming larger than life was their goal, no matter if it tore apart their family or not, then I'd say they've succeeded. They've been so successful at it, in fact, that I've come to only see them as fictional villains on a TV show. Surely, no one is that messed up in real life, but then reality, not Bravo reality, but reality reality hits, and Joe's court date to face charges of forgery is set of October 29. He faces 10 years in jail.

If you'll remember, he rejected a plea deal of five years in prison back in July for the accusation of illegally obtaining a driver's license using his brother's birth certificate after his own license was revoked after a DUI. Five years would've been a long time to be locked up, but now, Joe's facing the maximum sentence in the slammer.

I hope the worst for the Giudices. I hope Joe gets sent to jail and Teresa right along with him. Their innocent kids could move in with Zia Melissa and Zio Joe and could be raised under a roof where there's some semblance of decency.

Then I remember that these are real people, with real lives. Despite their outstanding ability to make me believe that this is all for show, that this drama, this "you're the devil because you're wearing red" and this "my bitch of a wife" and this "you're killing my father!" and this "strippergate" ... it's not fake. And I can no longer hope for the drama.

Teresa and Joe exist, and in a month, we'll find out if Joe's headed to jail and for how long. It won't be because Andy Cohen wrote it in a script, it'll be, for lack of a better word, realsies. And that's mind-boggling.

What do you think? Hard to remember these are real people?

I do hope he goes to Jail so she can actually face real reality, ya she makes the show entertaining, but come one she is not going to be around forever. She better figure it out or she will be a lonely old miserable person. Feel sorry for the children as well. They do not deserve to have sick fame hungry parents who will push everyone out of their way

I recall the first few seasons of RHONJ, She was not so.... out of touch with reality. I think the stress of her husband going to jail, her family not considering her feeling and joining the show, to be on a show. She KNEW what a reality show does to a family (Caroline and Dina?). They were already as a family having problems, the producers stir the pot, sort to speak, for ratings. They would take the dysfunctional family, and make it worse. She is in Cinderella mode, everything is perfect, her white knight is perfect, there is nothing to talk about, everythingnis OK....when he

goes to jail, reality will crash down. She will only have her parents and girls.... And seeing how her "friends" and family treated her, maybe that is a perfect solution.

THEY ALSO, BOTH OF THEM SIGNED THREE DIFFERENT BANKRUPTCY FILINGS WITH FALSE STATEMENTS.  THEY ARE UNDER THE GUN FOR THAT, BOTH OF THEM


EVEN THO SHE CLAIMS SHE'S PAYING BACK SOME OF IT, THEY WILL STILL BE MADE TO GO TO COURT ABOUT FALSIFYING THAT INFORMATION AND SIGNING WHERE IT SAYS IT IS TRUE. HMMMM. I DO FEEL SORRY FOR THEIR GIRLS.

i just hope those girls stand a chance in life, like mother like daughter :( makes me ill to think she is raising 4 more of her!

I truly feel sorry for the Guidice girls. They're the victims in this whole mess. Teresa and Joe are raising these girls to believe it's ok to trash people out, be disrespectful to family and to think it's ok to be a dysfunctional family. They don't stand a chance of anything resembling a normal, healthy life with those two crackpots as their parents. I hope Joe goes to jail for the crimes he's committed. If Teresa and Joe falsified their bankruptcies, they need to be held accountable for that, too.

Theresa has lost it. Her illiterate comments, cruel intentions, willful disregard of her husband's disgusting use of misogynist language, & insertion into everyone elses crisis has ruined her girls. She is a miserable role model, & everything she has done will be in her girls' faces for the rest of their lives. Shame

at minimum both boneheads should be in counselling not in front of every camera.He broke the law...rich or not...he should go to jail.

Where are the Teresa Fanatics with all their crazy excuses? Crickets from the nutty section! LOL!

I try to see things on both sides but in no way is Teresa a victim in this. It's exactly how it is. Teresa got addicted to the fame high and she doesnt care who she takes down with her on the show because shes meeting real celebrities so these people are nothing. Teresa is moving on to bigger and better things and the fact that Melissa is a younger, prettier version of herself would come and take that away has really pissed her off. If you see things different than you're a Teresa fan who is dumb just like her. If Joe goes to jail she's going to milk this for all its worth. A normal person who loves their kids would get off tv and get her family together but watch all you Tre fans : watch how this mother of four is going to handle this.......she's going to be on every tv, magazine with those four kids who are being forced to smile as they grieve their dad leaving. Teresa is going to be at every celebrity party she can go to cause now Juicy Joe is not around to keep her tame. Those kids are going to  be neglected and Andy Cohen will use this moment to make tons of money by giving them a spin off making money off of those innocent victims who are caught in the middle of all this drama.

At the end of the day the only ones that will suffer are the children. I wish no one jail time on the show. However, community service for the both just might bring them to their knees...
