So you know how we told you that Teresa Giudice of Real Housewives of New Jersey forgot she was bankrupt and instead of paying her bills went shopping. Yeah, her lawyer says that's okay.
So clearly, it must be, right?!
Teresa's attorney even flipped the table (pun intended) to even suggest that it was better to spend the money rather than pay off some of her creditors. We understand a lot of legal jargon, so see if you can make sense of what this putz is saying. Her lawyer says:
“That was the money she earned as an advance for her book Skinny Italian. Since she earned it after the filing, she was absolutely free to spend it. If she put it in the bank, they’d say, ‘Why don’t you pay your creditors,’ and the trustee might freeze the assets while he investigates whether she can spend it or not…Legally you are entitled to spend money you earn after a bankruptcy."
Uh-huh, sure. Is that what she is going to tell her kids when the creditors take all their furniture and their house and their car and then they have to cram themselves into into a one bedroom apartment in Newark, NJ?! Sounds perfect logical to us.
Now, if this guy and the Bravo people were smart, they would start Teresa right now in some good therapy. Why, you ask? Think about it:
Clearly she has an addiction…to shopping.
It's horrible. She can't stop herself. It's so bad that she is putting her family through hell. She is taking opportunities away from her children. It's so devastating, it needs to play out on the third season of Real Housewives. Perhaps, the only way to deal is with the support of the Bravo audiences…and a book deal. Possibly a dance single called Retail Is My Hell.
What an dramatic storyline that would be?! (You're welcome Bravo!)
