Teresa Giudice Husband Joe Indicted
Teresa Giudice is famous for her ongoing role on Bravo TV's Real Housewives Of New Jersey (RHONJ). She was one of the original cast members of RHONJ and is one of the remaining housewives.
While Teresa has had lots of personal successes as a result of RHONJ it has also brought the spotlight to the ongoing troubles of her husband Joe.
NorthJersey.com reported that authorities told them that Joe was indicted by a New Jersey grand jury yesterday (Tuesday) on the charge of fraudulently obtaining a driver's license. According to the site, the indictment charges the 40-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey hubby of using false identification and impersonating his brother, Pietro, to obtain a New Jersey driver's license in June 2010.
The charge of wrongfully using identifying information is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, NorthJersey.com reports. The impersonation charge carries a maximum 18-month prison sentence.
Joe was also in the news in 2009 when he and his wife filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy citing $11 million in debt. According to the Newark Star-Ledger, Joe was accused of hiding assets from the court.
The paper alleged that U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge, Morris Stern, signed off on a settlement between Joe and the trustee, John Sywilok. The agreement does not apply to Teresa, who is still pursuing a discharge of her debts. In September of 2011, Joe withdrew his bankruptcy filing to deal with his debts.
Teresa (nee Gorga) (born May 18, 1972) has been very outspoken about a variety of topics. She is a true Jersey girl who was born and raised in Paterson, New Jersey. She has been quoted as saying "I'm a Jersey girl. No one can knock me down." Teresa met her husband Joe in New Jersey and they have been together for more than 10 years.
Teresa claims that "People make fun of Jersey girls, but I think they're just jealous." (Season 1 - Season 2). Theresa's parents immigrated from Italy and raised Teresa and her brother Giuseppe, in an Italian Catholic home.
Teresa and Joe have four daughters, Gia (born in 2001), Gabriella (born in 2004), Milania (born in 2006) and baby Audriana (born in 2009, with whom she was pregnant during the season one reunion show).
Teresa's first book, Skinny Italian, a lifestyle title that teaches authentic, healthy Italian cooking was on the New York Times Bestseller List.
Her newest cookbook, Fabulicious!: Teresa's Italian Family Cookbook came out on May 3, 2011. It also was on the New York Times Bestseller List
Teresa has a 3rd cookbook planned titled 'Fabulicious--Fast & Fit!' due to come out in the Spring of 2012.
Additionally, she is a committee member for her former co-star, Dina Manzo's charity, Project Ladybug.Will Joe's latest problems cause problems for Teresa? Probably not. This lady just picks herself up from any troubles, dusts herself off and keeps on living her life. She will probably do the same with this latest news about Joe being indicted.
