Joe Giudice, Teresa’s husband on RHONJ, sentenced to 10 days in jail

May 03, 2010 - New York, New York, U.S. - TERESA GIUDICE AND JOE Bravo's ''Real Housewives of N.J.'' kick off thier 2nd Season in Patterson N.J. 05-03-2010. 2010.K64721JBB. © Red Carpet Pictures
In an episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Joe, Teresa’s gangster husband, tried to explain his DUI by claiming he ran his SUV into a pole, went to his friend’s house nearby, called the cops and did a ton of shots while they were waiting for the police to get there. It was a ridiculous explanation for why he was drunk at the scene of an accident, and Teresa, Jacqueline and Jacqueline’s husband accepted it at the time without questioning him.

When Joe was arrested for DUI, he was even turned over to a nearby police department which had other warrants out for his arrest. Joe’s license was suspended for a year after that incident, but he still thought he could drive anyway (just like Paris Hilton) and now he’s been sentenced to ten days in jail. Can’t say I feel sorry for him.

A judge sentenced Joe to ten days in prison and Joe is expected to begin his sentence next week. According to the document obtained by exclusively, he was also fined $1,000 and his license is suspended for at least another year. Oddly, the court action document does not list Giudice’s name. Sources tell that the reason for the jail time is because Joe drove with a suspended license.

In January, he was charged with driving under the influence after crashing his car into a telephone pole in Montville Township, New Jersey. He was taken to the hospital and then released to the police due to outstanding warrants. In March, he was fined $864, had his license revoked for 12 months, and was sentenced to 30 days of community service.

Joe might not be the only one going to jail. Teresa and Joe have been accused of fraud for trying to hide over a quarter million in earnings when they filed for bankruptcy protection from creditors earlier this year. Teresa is said to be so afraid of prison that she wants to drop off the show to ensure she doesn’t incriminate herself. We’ve already heard that Teresa might be leaving due to feuds with producers and the fact that her nemesis sister-in-law might earn a spot next season. Somehow she’s scored two In Touch covers this month, though. Either In Touch is sadly desperate for an exclusive or Bravo is getting some paid promotion. Either way, this woman is earning a ton of publicity for her bad behavior and she’s owning up to none of it. Just like her husband.

    Send them all to jail just for annoying the public!

  2. Jackson says:

    Ok, so I have not watched a second of any of these “Real Housewives” shows. Could someone please tell me how to pronounce this woman’s last name??? Every time I see it in print I have no clue how to pronounce it. GWEE-dis is how it comes out in my head – is this correct??

    They sound like a winning pair, eh? And I’d comment on her hair and dress but, really, they speak for themselves.

  3. mojoman says:

    Is she nesting a couple of Blue jays’ eggs on her head?? and why are her eyes loop sided? ah so many questions so little time…

  4. dorothy says:

    Thats the very least he can do for causing taxpayers to have to suck up his over-the-top living.

  5. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Ju-Dice is how I have heard it pronounced.

    As for him, he is an idiot! ” After the wreck, I went into my friends house and had a drink” RIIIIIIIGHT!

  6. Tess says:

    @ Jackson, they pronounce it Ju-dice. I have no idea if this is the authentic Italian pronounciation or just their own take on how it should sound.

    I do feel sorry for their kids. But the parents are no-class and ignorant grifters. They put their kids in this crummy, high-profile situation.

    Still don’t get Caroline’s love for this pair. I thought she was so big on supporting local law enforcemnt….

  7. Kitten says:

    Sounds like these two went to The Lohan School of Ethics.

  8. Samigirl says:


  9. wunderkindt says:

    Teresa needs to go next!

  10. kelly says:

    surely this picture was taken when she was pregnant, right?

  11. chasingadalia says:

    When T&J both end up in jail, I hope they send the kids to live with Caroline. She’ll teach them how to not be such whiners.

  12. RHONYC says:

    *countless luann’s voice*

    “money can’t buy you cl-assssss”

    haha 🙂

  13. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    “Elegance is learned, my friend, elegance is learned, my friend”

    Thankx RHONYC, now I will have that song in my darn head ALL DAY LONG!

  14. Persistent Cat says:

    So the last part is pronounced “dice” as in the cubed things you play craps with and not “dee-chay”?

  15. tasha says:

    @Kitten I love it!! So True

    “Sounds like these two went to The Lohan School of Ethics.”

    I think they are also in line with Eva and Randy Quaid another pair of grifters who just love to suck everyone dry and never pay for anything.

  16. Jo says:

    Grifters is a great word for these guys!

  17. Jill says:

    EEeeyewww! Using someone else’s jail cell furniture is just GROSS!!!

  18. LeeLee says:

    They’ll be divorced in a year although they totally deserve each other. Hopefully they’ll get what’s coming to them.

  19. original kate says:

    they need to stop dressing those kids up as adults and parading them around. this family is really creepy.

  20. gg says:

    It’s unfortunate these two stumpy bobble-headed schisters have replicated.

  21. Tess says:

    Persistent Cat

    You got it. Ju-dice as in the cubes you play craps with.

  22. GatsbyGal says:

    Looking at them makes me want to throw up really bad.

  23. Juliet says:

    I’m just really sorry for those poor little obnoxious kids. What have they done to be dressed like that???

  24. Jen says:

    pronounced “Jew – Dice”

  25. Libby Coleman says:

    WOW, that is one ugly woman. How did she get on tv?

  26. JimmyJams says:

    Joe looks like he’s had a few shooters and check out how tight Terese’s dress it around her flabby belly. Show some self respect Terese and wear a dress that actually fits your post baby body! Guido’s gone wrong!
