Oh, well look who's been enjoying some fun in the sun despite 39 counts of fraud that could send them behind bars for 50 years? Our favorite Real Housewives of New Jersey lady-in-bankruptcy Teresa Giudice posted photos of beachy fun this weekend, like she and Joe haven't a care in the world. Look at this frolicsome pair! Dashing about in the surf, smiling/scowling/squinting as only they can. You'd never think they were on the hook for alleged conspiracy to defraud investors, illegally obtaining mortgages, hiding assets -- should I go on, or is that enough?
You may say, OH WHAT, are they supposed to just stay at home (er, well, at one of their homes) with the drapes drawn, wearing sackcloth and eating little torn-up pieces of cardboard for dinner? Is that what they're supposed to do?!?
YES. Yes! That is exactly what they should be doing right now. All of it. The drapes, the sackcloth, the little pieces of cardboard for dinner. That should be what's going on at Chez Giudice right now.
Oh all right. No, that's not what I'm saying.
I just think ... maybe if you're facing these charges, a little discretion is in order. Go ahead and enjoy a day at the beach (because who knows how many more of those you'll get after you-know-what). Just don't gleefully post the photos on the Internet. It kind of makes you look a wee bit overconfident about proving your innocence.
But silly me. Look who I'm talking about -- Teresa and Joe, discretion? Those names and that word shouldn't even be in the same paragraph together. Publishing this post might actually break the Internet, that's so ridiculous. The last thing Teresa and Joe are going to be is discreet. They may be going to hell in a hand basket, but they will go partying all the way.
So you know what? Forget everything else I just said. The Giudices should post all the beach photos they want. Go 'head and be their bad selves. Add some fruity, slushy tropical drinks while they're at it. If anything, I think the government is more likely to believe they have something to hide if they suddenly started behaving themselves.
Do you think Teresa should be posting beach photos at a time like this?
