Is this the PR friendly way to say divorce??
We're not exactly sure what Teresa Giudice's lawyer is trying to say, but what Henry Klingman said after her court hearing today doesn't make things sound too promising for the sometimes fiery and always juicy Real Housewives of New Jersey couple.
After representing only Teresa during her hearing, Henry tried to explain why Joe Giudice has a separate lawyer. And while we get that part of it is strictly legal, it sure sounds like part of the reason might be to avoid any problems in the future if they aren't in the same place, so the say.
"It's almost invariably true that in federal criminal cases such as this one, the judge requires each defendant to have their own attorney. It reflects the ethical rules so the lawyers avoid conflicts of interest. Even if people are on the same page like a husband and wife, they could theoretically go in different directions at some point in the future."
What directions could he possibly mean?
Divorce? One goes to jail and the other doesn't? One ends up deported to Italy and the other stays in New Jersey?
And here we always thought that the couple that defrauds together, stays together! We kid, we kid!
Do U think their marriage will survive this battle??
