Looks like these two might not be working together to get back on the right track.
But, it's probably because they CAN'T work together, legally speaking.
Teresa Giudice had a serious wake up call when she was sentenced to jail time for fraud, but now she's taking steps to right her wrongs and has already paid off her restitution. While she and Joe Giudice owe over $400,000 together, Tre has already paid off her half of $200,000 to the federal government.

The U.S. Attorney's Office ordered them to pay separately and confirmed she's completed her part, and we're guessing Tre was able to do that easily thanks to Andy Cohen and her Watch What Happens Live interview despite the denials of a hefty payment!
Her attorney is claiming she got $150,000 from a contract advance (Bravo??) and $50,000 from a loan from a friend (Dina Manzo??).
Meanwhile, Juicy Joe doesn't seem to be having the same luck because he hasn't yet paid up. Although we had heard he got $50,000 for taking part in the interview, he certainly isn't making the big bucks like the Real Housewives of New Jersey queen.
We'd say maybe his wifey will let him borrow a few bucks, but that'd be totally illegal and probably get them even MORE jail time so please don't!
Maybe he can just hope for a Bravo spinoff of him and his daughters while Tre is serving her time?
