Watch Teresa Giudice Talk About Her New Year's Resolutions Like She's Not About To Go To Prison

Recommended Posts

Disturbing...resolving to spend more time together, with positive people and giving up carbs -- as if Teresa is NOT going to prison. On Monday.

That said, clearly, they are both looking for other gigs. Teresa is awkward on camera. And she just seems, well, dim. But for me, Dina seems more natural, relaxed and more interesting to listen to. She isn't a natural talent, but she has more potential, if she can get a following.

YMMV, of course.

But seriously, does Teresa think the viewers will watch her just because she is so compelling, but that said viewers will be unaware she is making resolutions for HER TIME BEHIND BARS?!?!?!

Well, at least she'll get to work on her ass in jail, just like Apollo (from Atlanta Housewives) will get to work on his abs and biceps.  Nothing like the prison yard to help you keep your fitness-related resolutions.

Dina had her shot on HGTV and the reality is her party ideas are pretty lame and cheesy. 

 

Teresa surrounding herself with positive people-interesting considering where she is headed.

What a great new topic! But I have to admit I'm kinda scratching my head over this one. It's just so bizarre. Even the major tabloids who are generally pretty friendly to her are basically making fun of her.

I am not familiar with the cuisine served served up at Club Fed, but I'm guessing that it's full of bad carbs, because it's generally cheaper to feed people carbs rather than protein and fresh fruits and veggies. Lots of processed foods, I would imagine, lots of fillers, which are notorious for being carbo loaded are served in prison. Good luck to her keeping that resolution.

You think? Seriously bizarre. I think she needs a new PR team.

Back again. This is a great chuckle to end 2014. I don't know how to link articles, but find the column from TIME. It pretty much sums it up. Better yet it's under News - Bizarre.

I'm making my way through Season 4 and have to say, I can't figure Teresa out. I'm no fan of the Gorgas but damn, Teresa doesn't seem to have an ounce of emotional intelligence or self-awareness. I can't figure out who she is or what her story is - either she's in extreme self-denial, or the "everything's GREAT!" is a coping mechanism. Or a total act for the tabloids, which is what I think. Underneath the ditziness, I think Teresa's actually pretty shrewd about the way she uses the media to her advantage. 

 

I seriously doubt the Giudices will go the distance between their two sentences - maybe they'll stay together for financial reasons, or Old School reasons, but I doubt they'll both be humbled and have epiphanies about what matters while in prison. I bet Teresa is thinking/hoping that Bravo will take her back and that she can squeeze another best-seller out of her experience.

After watching 90 seconds of that clip (because I couldn't make it through the entire three minutes), I had new sympathy for the Bravo film crew and editors, who have to listen to hours of that drivel and try to make something out of it.

Here's the link from Time:

http://time.com/3650468/teresa-giudice-pledges-to-give-up-bad-carbs-for-the-new-year-in-prison/

Surreal is the best word for it. I think everyone under the sun knows Teresa lives in denial, but this just takes it out of the stratosphere. Now I'm thinking she might pull an Apollo and not show up - her denial is that deep.

 

 

We should take a poll about Teresa reporting to prison.

 

Will she.....

1) report January 5, 2015 on time

2) report early to avoid a media blitz

3) report late

4) not report at all

Yeah, prison is not the place to give up carbs.   Even Club Fed.   Theresa is some serious denial.   Serious, serious, like mental breakdown when she is strip searched denial.    I almost feel sorry for her.   

 

I already said they would have to send the federal marshals to get her before she goes to prison.   She will not go voluntarily.

 

BTW, how did those grifters afford a vacation in Aspen?    Shouldn't that money have gone to restitution?   Can't wait until the Feds see those pictures.

I think she'll go voluntarily and be dressed to the nines with her hair and make-up done.  She'll smile in case anyone's taking photos and save the tears for inside.

I agree that she will show up voluntarily but not dressed to the nines. My guess is she'll have her hair pulled back in a ponytail and be wearing a ball cap, sunglasses and sweats.

I think she shows up at 11:59 pm on January 4th because I read somehwere you will get credit for the whole day even if you are there one day. She will be dressed low key with no makeup. I assume the extensions will come out before she gets there.

I agree.  I think she'll go in minutes before the strike of midnight, her SUV carriage will then turn into a pumpkin and no flashing lights, no paps, leaving her 4 beautiful dawders in their beds.  Unless, she already sold the pics to rag mag to help pay the utility bills for 3 months.

Are we starting another poll? I've got to get my spreadsheet ready, if so.

 

As long as you're gearing up, perhaps we should go all out this weekend and have a second poll.

 

How and with whom will Teresa arrive at the gates of the Big House?

Oh, good one. 

 

Alone with a driver.  Because Juicy will be home taking care of those 4 beautiful dawders.  I'm guessing at night, alone, whisked away.  Well, Tre would say "wisked' away.

Okay, I'm checking during football. My beloved Buckeyes from The Ohio State University are on soon. I'll check back later. Add more categories, if you like. Then I'll collect the data. 

Poll:

When will Teresa arrive?

With whom will she arrive?

In what transportation will she arrive?

In what clothing will she arrive? 

With what paparazzi will she arrive?

That's just too funny. But you forgot to fit in "bad carbs".

It was Fabulicious alright. No four "ingrediences" bruschetta. To anybody living/visiting DC I highly recommend The Source for Saturday Dim Sum brunch. It's like stealing (shout out to Teresa!). My husband and I leave stuffed for $55 (before tip), when dinner there is about $100+/person. Unfortunately, in DC we could easily spend $50 on burgers so we're there a lot on Saturdays.

I think Teresa will arrive early 10 am, Joe driving their Mercedes SUV and there will be paparazzi.  My guess is a really early middle of the night arrival probably takes some planning and the prison staff ay not be up to it.  My guess is there is administrative staff times that do the initial intake and they may not want to deviate from their normal hours.

 

Aw just watched Teresa's tour of the house an d furniture shopping-money is not object.  Yeah right -go with that one Teresa.

I haven't read that, but could be true.

I did find this little nugget. This article says that Melissa, Kathy, and Dina have all been enlisted to help with the girls. Apparently Tre doesn't think Juicy is up for the task. I think this rag is notoriously wrong, so who knows? The idea that she would have to rely on Melissa or Kathy in any manner is awesome to me. Knowing that they are cooking her girls dinner or doing their hair will be a huge punishment to her and well deserved.

One thing I did find believable is that Tre is worried about Juicy cheating while she is away. You think? I'd say if a guy will cheat on you before you head to Federal Prison, he will most certainly cheat on you after you get there.

On another note, I began to get depressed today because I realized my two week vacation ends on Monday and it's back to work. Then I realized that at least I wasn't headed to the slammer with all those bad carbs and I cheered up a bit.

I'm probably the last person still saying that it's not 100% certain that Danbury is her destination (it could also be Camp Cupcake in WV). Even if the judge requested Danbury, my understanding is that the BOP makes the final decision, and informs the prisoner-to-be about two weeks out. Anyway, I'm just saying this since I don't see how there's any way anyone, let alone the media, will know the details and/or take pictures of Teresa entering the Big House. This isn't a media event for her - I'm sure she'll try to sneak in quietly, as unnoticed as possible. Sorry if I'm being a buzzkill....I ran out of Fabellini, and I hear more bottles are hard to come by for some reason....

Not to be a kill joy but what is the big deal about Teresa sitting in a car and driving through the gates of a prison.  She didn't even give good perp walk footage go in and out of court.  I only want to know when she checks in-I don't need pictures.

Regarding the video New Year's Resolutions:  She's gone beyond delusional. There is something seriously wrong there.  Who in their right mind thought that was a good idea and wouldn't become a huge joke.  Why would Dina even go there with her?

 

Prison reporting

 

She'll show up casually dressed, jeans, baseball cap, etc.

 

She'll arrive in an SUV type car, nothing flashy. I think one of her lawyers or "advisors" will be with her. 

 

She'll arrive early in the morning - pre dawn or shortly thereafter because  I don't think she will want the paps there.

 

But they will be there.

 

That's my guess!

She will be "escorted" by federal marshals who had to go to the tacky mansion to get her.   She will be in cuffs, screaming that she shouldn't have to report because she sued her lawyers and that means the sentence will be overturned.

The resolution I thought was even weirder to say, considering there will be prison time for 2015, is for both of them to resolve to spend more time together in the coming year!!  WHAAAAATTTT?  Shows how in denial and stupid Teresa is - but it also made Dina look like a total idiot, and someone who just agrees with whatever her "bestie" professes.  What a couple of morons.  My resolve in 2015 is to stop watching these stoopid housewives shows and use the time for more interesting tasks, such as watching paint dry and watching the grass grow.  Happy New Year to fellow board readers.

If a prisoner doesn't check in by their surrender date, I think they're punished by extra time. I don't think the Feds waste money or resources escorting the latecomers (unless they go AWOL for months!)

If Teresa doesn't self surrender when she is scheduled, a lovely arrest warrant will be issued. I hope she surrenders to whatever facility she is assigned. If she goes to local Marshalls it can be quite a long journey for her.

Okay, I'm checking during football. My beloved Buckeyes from The Ohio State University are on soon. I'll check back later. Add more categories, if you like. Then I'll collect the data. 

Poll:

In what transportation will she arrive?

In what clothing will she arrive?

I'll play! Though I guess it all depends if she surrenders to the US Marshall's somewhere else and they take her in.

Arrives at 4 pm.

Arrives with Joe only as she has poor relationships with lawyers.

In the Mercedes (not giving that up to the last minute).

Black clothing with hair in pony tail and hat. Nothing done with the bedazzler.

Paparazzi hard to project. They have to know when and where (she'll probably tell them). I'll go with three film crews (one maybe hers) and five or so enterprising paps who will then sell them to the tabloids. It would be great if Vicki from the Star-Ledger goes, but she probably doesn't want to travel for this one. Hopefully they'll send at least send a camera or two.

Re: Melissa helping? Don't buy it for a second. Joe and Rosie clearly get a long so there might be something to them accepting help from Rosie, and Kathy maybe from time to time as part of it. I think Teresa would let her kids do without before ever letting Melissa help, and I think Joe feels the same way about Joe Gorga, which means Melissa by association.

 

That video... *sigh*... it would be something if Teresa was really secretly the best actress in the world, but most likely just really deluded. I would not be surprised if she believes she'll be "saved"... or that they're headed to Italy this weekend.

What is the superlative of delusional?

 

I'm guessing it's "MOST DELUSIONAL" and should also be a synonym for Teresa Giudice.

 

I just found this on Yahoo compliments of US Weekly:

 

"The Bravo star, who was convicted on several counts of fraud alongside her husband this past October, has remained strong for her girls, but the source tells Us she “only sees what she wants in terms of the legal stuff” and that she “is telling friends that she is hoping she will only be there for a week or two.”

Yahoo has another link to a piece about Teresa trying to rake in some cash before she heads to the Big House on Monday.

 

“She was looking for paid holiday photo gigs with her family and personal appearances. She is trying to pocket all the money she can before heading off to the big house.”  Although the RHONJ did her best to generate positive publicity for herself, it appears no one wanted to associate with someone with a past such as hers.

 

"We’re told nobody even wanted her for press on New Year’s Eve,” the insider revealed.
