Teresa Giudice Legal Controversy
Teresa Giudice is infamous for her grand and ostentatious lifestyle. Her husband, Joe Giudice is guilty of the same. The couple’s legal controversy started in 2013. Teresa and Joe, even before becoming a part of RHONJ, were involved in the fraud of exaggerating their income while applying for loans. Her husband was also accused of failing to file tax returns for four years. The star became famous after appearing in the first season of RHONJ in 2009 and her cases became even more famous after the first season.
There is a reason why Teresa Giudice is known as a controversy queen. Throughout her shows, she made it clear that she has no intention of going to prison and she’ll try and turn every possible stone in her favor. Needless to say, the court had a hard time with Teresa as she was not ready to go down easily. Teresa and Joe got themselves more into trouble by withholding information in the court. The couple was supposed to complete their probation report but they refused to acknowledge the details of their properties.
Teresa Giudice In Prison
The court did not see this act smart at all. The judge was quick to announce that it does not matter if Teresa is a celebrity because her act is offensive in the eyes of the court. So instead of probation, she will have to serve her time in prison.
Teresa Giudice started to serve her time in prison from January 5, 2015. After 11 months, the television personality was released in December 2015. Her reunion with her family was emotional as her husband soon started serving his time in the prison from 2016. After serving 3 years in prison, Joe was released in 2019. But things did not go as plan and Joe was deported back to Italy by the end of 2019.

Teresa recently admitted during RHONJ that she finally believes the rumors that Joe had cheated on her during their course of the marriage.
