Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband Giuseppe (Joe) each pleaded guilty to bank fraud on Tuesday.

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe are in more hot water.

The federal government has added a pair of new charges to the 39-count indictment for bank fraud and tax evasion filed against them back in July.

In a statement issued on Monday, Teresa's lawyer Henry Klingeman said, "As she did with respect to the allegations contained in the original indictment...

On March 21, 2006 we were all introduced to The Real Housewives of Orange County: Kimberly Bryant, Jo De La Rosa, Vicki Gunvalson, Jeana Keough and Lauri Waring -- five women living in an upscale gated community in OC whose lives were followed for the sake of entertainment.

Two years after the debut of the series, Bravo cashed in by adding another branch of the series, The Real Housewives of New York City, which made a star of series regular Bethenny Frankel, a former natural foods chef who has since gone on to release numerous best-selling books, create a cocktail company (which she then ...

'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: Season 5 Finale

September 30th, 2013 11:24am EDT
Real Housewives of New Jersey
As all good things must come to an end, so must the fifth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Must they go out with such a whimper, instead of a bang, though? These are the women that made “prostitution whore” part of our lexicon, and nary a table was flipped this entire episode.

We start off at Kim’s salon opening from hell, Posche 2: the Reckoning, where Penny and the Gorgas are still screaming at each other about Twitter. Penny maintains, steadfast, that Teresa fed her all the information she ever tweeted about, and told her to say everything nasty she ever tweeted. I mean, it’...

Apparently it’s true that Justin Timberlake’s manager, Johnny, has shown interest in taking Melissa on as a potential new artist, and that wasn’t a strange dream I just had. In order to complete her demo, she has to fly down to Orlando (Joe’s going too because of reasons?) and stay at Johnny’s magical recording studio compound/human-sized mini golf castle.

The point of this trip is to whip Melissa into shape before recording her demo tape, after her disastrous session in her home studio. Before Johnny can take her around as one of his artists, she needs work. She’ll have to work with a voc...

Teresa’s summary of the Arizona trip to her mother is hilariously succinct. “We went to Arizona and we went healing and we had SUCH a good time and now everything is better.” To Teresa, everything is so good that she can now invite her parents over for Sunday dinner. Her mother looks unconvinced, but sighs and agrees to come over. What’s one more table flip going to hurt?

Jacqueline has to face her fears and give a speech for an autism charity event (basketball is involved?), but the poor thing doesn’t even know where to begin. She looks petrified at the thought of getting on stage in fron...

The gang is still in Arizona for their cleansing retreat that’s supposed to be Melissa’s birthday party for a third episode, and it’s just finally getting dramatic. Caroline, not prompted by an unseen Bravo executive or anything, asks the room if they’re all happy with each other and their relationships. Joe Gorga decides to lay it all out.

He tells Teresa in front of everyone what he and Melissa think she’s been up to with Penny, and explodes.

Because Andy Cohen owes a favor to the guy who runs this resort, the gang is in Arizona for another episode of cleansing and healing in the Arizona sun. Poor birthday girl Melissa didn’t sign up for this; she begs Joe for poolside cocktails when he tells her they’re going on a special horseback riding exercise. Love and light, girl.

Turns out, they’re not riding the horses. You can see Melissa dying inside. It’s a horse therapy exercise with a gruff cowboy named Wyatt, who isn’t taking nonsense from anyone. He explains that horses can pick up on your energy and authenticity (your genuine n...

Last week’s discussion (fight? confrontation?) between Jacqueline and Teresa wraps up as the ladies get to the real meat of the problem: their incessant need to tweet every time they’re upset with each other instead of confronting their problems directly. But they agree to get over it, essentially, and move forward in their relationship in a new way. They’ll be civil – and maybe one day, they’ll be friends again.

Jacqueline and Kathy hit up a lingerie store later on to discuss her reconciliation with Teresa, and she reveals that she’s heading to Beverly Hills soon to get a tummy tuck and h...

In the wake of the most restorative bonding retreat in the history of trust building, all is calm and well in Franklin Lakes. Melissa goes to visit Joe with their sons at one of his construction sites, when he gives her some good news – Sizzle Tans wants the couple to appear on a series of billboards for the company.

Since Teresa was the star of a Sizzle Tans commercial several years ago, Melissa declines the offer so she won’t have something to fight about with her sister-in-law, and lets her husband star in the ad by himself. Are we all maturing already?

Things are so good, that Teresa ...

The tearful reconciliation between Joe and Teresa continues, thanks to blessed angel therapist Dr. V, with more talking and negotiation. The siblings absolutely have to get everything off their chests if they really want to move on. Otherwise this whole ordeal was a bust. Send in Melissa.

Melissa is summoned, albeit hesitantly, and she tells Teresa exactly why she feels so betrayed; even if Teresa doesn’t directly say terrible things about her sister-in-law, she is always conveniently in the room when they’re being said. If she truly cared about Melissa and didn’t wish her ill, she would s...

The key to a great episode of any Real Housewives franchise is to get the women out of town, in close quarters, to a luxury resort location where they are unable to escape. This episode of RHONJ is no exception.

The time came for Teresa’s trust-building relationship retreat, and her family geared up to inevitably throw down for the cameras. Tensions were running high, especially after last week’s altercation with Kim D and Melissa’s former best friend, Jan. Teresa is going into the retreat unaware that the others hate her/blame her for this incident.

Kathy decided to accept her test kitchen from her awful 1950s husband so she can get some work done in peace. In this oasis, she gets to work on cannoli recipes, and invite her friends Caroline, Jacqueline and Rosie over for gossip and taste-testing without Richie breathing down her neck. Rosie delights the ladies with the tale of her meeting with Teresa, and also floats the possibility of them all accompanying her on their “stress retreat.” That would be a firm “no” from all parties.

Teresa, once again reminds the cameras that her father is very ill, and that her parents and brother are t...

Grab your popcorn, because the aftermath of last week’s gym fight is about to begin.

Joe storms home after duking it out with Teresa to tell his wife all about the incident. But before he can even get to the good details, he discovers that the part about Melissa tweeting something catty to Teresa was true, and it makes him flip out. In a way, he has a point. He argues that he’s out there trying to defend her, while she’s trying to give Teresa a taste of her own medicine. Teresa may be wrong, but Melissa shouldn’t stoop to her level.

Melissa has her own fair point, which is that Teresa is ...

Since nothing else in the entire world is happening at all, the Gorgas and the Giudices are still arguing about when Melissa went to visit her father-in-law in the hospital. The general consensus is: yes, Melissa went to the hospital, but Teresa is upset that she waited four days to do so. Melissa is a rational human being who didn’t want to give her gravely ill, elderly father-in-law pneumonia, so she didn’t go right away. Semantics.

Kathy is busy being boring and talking to Rosie and her mother about the same situation. She never went to see her uncle in the hospital because of her own f...

The fifth season for Real Housewives of New Jersey opens on a somber note in November 2012, as all the women deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in their own way. Most of the families have houses down at the Jersey shore, and the wrath of the storm has all but destroyed their vacation homes. Fortunately, they all have enough humility to recognize onscreen that some people can’t go home to unaffected houses, as they live at the shore full time.

Now, you would think that a major disaster would bring the women together and make them realize that their normal fighting is petty, and sens...
