Teresa Giudice got a brand new Lexus SUV as a gift after getting out of prison

Teresa Giudice was released from federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, last week after serving nearly a year’s sentence on multiple counts of federal, bankruptcy and wire fraud. Teresa and her husband, Joe Giudice, bilked creditors out of millions of dollars and yet still reside in the 10,000 square foot mansion they purchased in New Jersey with other people’s money. (The tacky property is currently for sale for $2.9 million.) Joe was sentenced to 41 months in prison and should begin his term sometime in the new year.

Despite failing to pay court ordered fees, taxes, and just about any other money they owe, Teresa was gifted with a brand new Lexus SUV upon returning home, because she “needs a car, end of story” according to her lawyer.

Teresa Giudice had a nice surprise when she returned home from prison – a new car.

Her husband Joe gifted her with a black Lexus SUV, complete with a large red bow.

While it might seem like the Lexus LX 570, which features black tinted windows, is an extravagant gift, her attorney tells PEOPLE there’s nothing more to it than the Real Housewives of New Jersey star needing a set of wheels now that she’s back home.

“She needs a car. End of story – just like anyone else who needs a car,” attorney James J. Leonard, Jr. tells PEOPLE.

[From People]

The base price for this car is around $90k but it has tinted windows so the full price is estimated at around six figures. These people have no shame at all.

People Magazine has run a ton of stories and exclusive photos of Teresa’s reunion with her family. They also have details of her Christmas Eve celebration with her family and the Gorgas, which was filmed for Bravo, and her Christmas Eve makeover. Plus, Teresa lost weight in prison teaching fitness classes and plans to get a spray tan at home to celebrate her release! Neither Teresa, her oldest daughter Gia, nor Melissa or Joe Gorga has posted any photos on their social media of Teresa. That’s probably because People Magazine and the various outlets are paying a hefty fee for the photos of the family. They’ve got to pay for that new Lexus somehow.

    Yes, let’s all ignore our illegal dealings and lies and focus on a A NEW CAR! This couple has no shame.😤

    • melodycalder says:

      I would like to think surely they didn’t buy it, maybe Lexus gave them a free lease? This is getting them so much publicity

      • Tate says:

        Would it really be good publicity for Lexus to be connected to these dirtbags?

      • The Original G says:

        Lexus should pay them not to drive their cars. Wait to find out that this is some shady third party lease.

      • Bearcat Lawyer says:

        Other sites are reporting that her lawyer either purchased or leased the car and gave (lent?) it to her. If so, then her lawyer has some bizarre ethical notions. Then again, it is New Jersey…

  2. Falula says:

    I would say “how dumb are these people?” But we all know the answer to that.

  3. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    *beep* her and *beep* her husband.

    Tacky selfish family.

    • ldub says:

      i’ll fill in the blanks

      f*ck her and f*ck her husband.

      Tacky selfish family.

      • NGBoston says:

        Exactly, I cannot stomach that pudge ball Guido husband of hers.


        And they obviously have no shame at all. Their Daughter Gia is beautiful though but the Musical Group she is in is a joke.

        Can we say

        Tacky. Jersey. Greaseballs. Hey, Joe—just because you have a lot of money you obtained by illegally screwing people over does not make you classy.

      • Layla says:

        NGBoston – are you sh$&ing me? Guido? Greaseball? How about he’s simply a greedy douche – regardless of his heritage or nationality? Italian slurs – like slurs against any ethnic group – are totally unacceptable in the 21st century. I can’t believe I just read this on this site – and no one else called you out. What a friggin disappointment.

    “She needs a car. End of story, just like anyone else that needs a car”
    So the only car available was a high end late model Lexus SUV? Give me a break
    Where are they getting the money for that car when they are supposed to be bankrupt?

    • Janie says:

      I wonder if the NJ Courts will feel she “just needed a car”? Hopefully after the holidays someone will delve into all this. I couldn’t figure out the caravan that followed her home from prison, more security than our President. Smh.

    • Inconceivable! says:

      Plus, Teresa is on house arrest and Joe is not legally able to drive. Exactly WHO is supposed to drive this new $90k Lexus?

      • lucy2 says:

        Excellent point. And didn’t they have a car before she went into the slammer and he got his license revoked? Why did they need a NEW car?
        I hope the courts look into this. If I were one of the people they owed money to, I’d be PISSED.

  5. We Are All Made of Stars says:

    Oh please. This is why people act like this in America. They live the life for countless years, lie, steal, and circumvent justice, and then after all that they are punished with a nine month staycation at a garden club facility with free aerobics instructors. Jesus, please make the Lexus parking break stop working while they are standing behind the SUV.

  6. Lahdidahbaby says:

    I. Don’t. Understand. How. They. Get. Away. With. This.

    • Santia says:

      They always do. The same way 50 Cents gets away with posting pictures of stacks of money in his fridge while claiming bankruptcy. Makes me stabby.

  7. Tate says:

    Disgusting criminals. Bravo is just as disgusting.

  8. Nancy says:

    Yes let us reward crass and repugnant behavior. These tools have ruined Bravo, what used to be a great station. Top Chef my fav…..then these slores come strutting into town, tables flipping, women screaming and literally fist fighting, how classy. Said it before but will reiterate Andy Cohen went from winner to sinner by allowing this crap to be aired. He should hook up with Seacrest, two of a kind. Saw a pic of her four daughters…..she has a Khloe….a daughter that looks nothing like the other three. Interesting Teresa…..another book in the works down the line.

  9. HK9 says:

    And then they wonder why the IRS goes prancing up their ass with a microscope. Have they no sense at all??!!?? :-0

  10. Izzy says:

    Grifters gonna grift.

  11. CK says:

    I’m surprised that they haven’t set up cameras for the post prison arc yet for the next season of RHONJ. Also, I’m shamefully considering watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Atlanta. I’ve gone a year without some trashy reality t.v. and I need to treat myself.

  12. Ariel says:

    I know it is unkind, but I hope that Lexus gets her sent back to prison.

  13. kri says:

    Seriously, that headline and article, not to mention her crimes against the human hairline, illustrate SO MANY things that are wrong with our culture. Those two are the tackiest maggots I’ve seen in awhile. THOSE BLUE CURTAINS ARE SHREDDING MY SOUL.

  14. Honeybea says:

    Her daughter is wearing so much make-up. I can see a future kylie jenner in the works

  15. Honeybea says:

    Juicy joe is so sexy!!!


  16. DK says:

    Looks like she lasered off some hair on her forehead and moved back her hairline. It’s different from pre-prison!

  17. Citresse says:

    I realize this has probably been mentioned a hundred times but; odd hairline/forehead.

  18. Mrs. Odie says:

    Snitches get stitches, but…

    Hide it and ride it!

    Contrive and drive!

    From fraudulence to opulence!

  20. Jen says:

    Hairline comments are killing me! 1st season it was a one-head, its almost a forehead now….they are cockroaches and may never go away I fear

  21. meanusdevilo says:

    I wish I got a Lexus SUV when I didn’t get out of prison because I never committed multiple felonies.
