EXCLUSIVE: Is Teresa Giudice Working On Writing A Tell-All Book About Family And Legal Problems?

June 4, 2014 |By Continue Reading

ter

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has patiently been awaiting sentencing for fraud charges against her and new reports reveal Teresa is planning on writing a tell-all book about her family, problems, and jail fears!

Radar reports,

“Teresa is working furiously on a book about what’s going on now with her. She’s been approached and offered big money for her tell-all. There are a lot of publishers who want to get her locked down and make sure they have the book in-house. Teresa’s covering all of the tough times that she’s going through. Everything, including how she’s prepping the family for jail time for Joe and maybe even her, which she is praying doesn’t happen. And she’s going to admit everything that really happened as well as her fears about jail”

We decided to get to the bottom of it and ask our RHONJ sources if there is any truth to the latest report in which they tell us EXCLUSIVELY that it’s absolutely false!

Our RHONJ sources add, “Teresa is not focusing on writing anything at the moment. After this all ends, she may consider writing a book but it would not be personal or about her family. Instead it would be about how she personally has had to deal with what’s been going on and her feelings on the case.”

Tre writing a book on this time in her life, is yet to be seen. I really don’t put much credence in either ROL or this “exclusive source”. I really don’t think a true tell all is in the works as Tre isn’t the type to TELL ALL. She is the one who was offended a few seasons ago that people said JoeGi was in jail. She wanted people to say he was “away”. While I get that is the old school Italian thing to say, and if I were in the same position I would want say “went away”… Read more »

@Hopeful you keep saying IF when her bankruptcy papers are public record. You’re just going to ignore them to try and argue. Lol. Whatever floats your boat. Btw his business partner had already won a case against Joe and a judge ordered Joe to pay him back. Again, public record and it’s been reported on this site as well. I guess that’s another detail you and others would love to ignore! As far as the tenants, how quickly we forget the news story that this blogger reported herself couple years ago when Joe left them with no power an rigged… Read more »

Yet YOU and this blogger along with other Teresa fans are trying to compare a due dilligence issue with this massive fraud the Giudices have been committing since BEFORE they joined the show….again…all public record.

I have to disagree about her walking away from the cameras and everyone still being interested in her. If she were to walk away from the show, no one would care anymore. She is not that special.

Give me a break Hopeful. The ONLY reason people are talking about her now are because of her NEW CHARGES from October of last year. Prior to that nobody gave a shit. That’s the truth! And if you need info about the fertility clinic she and Joe stiffed, read her bankruptcy papers. They are public record. Unlike Amber and all of your “if this and if that” there are no IF’s with the Giudices. The plead GUILTY to several felonies. But of course you already know this.

Her reality is “I did not do anything wrong. Everyone is out to get me. It’s Melissa, Kathy, Caroline and Jac’s fault. We’re good people. This could happen to anyone.”

In other words, she will talk about being the eternal victim and how everyone is against her. She should not be allowed to profit from her crimes. If she wants to write a book about her life so be it, but all the money….every dime….should go to the victims of her and Juicy’s scams. Their tenants, his business partner, the fertility clinic she owes money to etc.

Caroline was talking about the DUI case and she implied that Tre would divorce him and write a book about single parenting without Joe. Not so much the story here.

A memoir about her life of crime? about Juicy Joe scams?

I am not sure she is allow to profit for her criems and she has already plead guilty to it so I am not sure how this would work.

Now, if she goes to jail and writes about her experience in it that could be a best seller. I imagine Teresa flapping her eyelashes and teaching the immates to cook Italian style, she can teach them her fabulous recipes and make the best of it.

Teresa is not done by a long shot.

Not to mention if that psychic friend is right that Joe will be the one going for a long time and/or Teresa does little to no time she will be paying the legal fees and whatever fines that comes their way.

Thanks Cheryl for mentioning that psychic scene. I know it is a bit off topic, but I wish that Bravo didn’t include that for the promotion of the new season. Teresa and Joe’s sentencing is July 8th and the new season starts a week later. Seeing that scene play out on tv before the legal judgement would worry me as to how it might influence the outcome. Call me paranoid, but I wouldn’t want it to taint the decision in a negative way.

In the overarching scheme of things, I DO believe that her autobiography will be of interest. Of all the HWs, and of most reality TV characters, she is one of the most talked about, and wondered about. I’d like to know how she grew up, what influenced her, how she met and married Joe, and how they handled their finances, etc., and the entire experience of blossoming into a reality TV character — from the very first idea through the results of the indictments. I do believe, if written the right way by the right professional ghostwriter, she could have… Read more »

Karen, you make me laugh. I was an ” Executive secretary” for a number of years at a corporate office. I think it is now referred to as an administrative assistant or something like that. You and Honnie make good points about the ghost writing topic. Some people are not very good at expressing their thoughts in writing and others are not very good at reading comprehension. To have a person who is able to communicate in writing, to both of these, is valuable.

Nope, not at all. I am a ghostwriter; have done a few book projects. Most recent is a local Jersey Shore cookbook, still in its final phase.

Expressing one’s self is easy — but in the written form is very challenging and needs someone who keenly understands the significant and numerous differences between spoken language and written — without losing the person’s original voice. I’m a word nerd and it’s quite fun for me!

The folks that r not journalist need ghost writers or a terrific editor and there is nothing to be ashamed of.

@ Texas, I think because most people have no idea how difficult it is to write well. It takes years of education, practice, and still most people never get there. Asking a lay person to write their own memoirs is sort of like asking them to paint their own portrait. There will be something on the canvas–but it will be awful.

Couple of things … She very well may be writing a book but rest assured she will not be making any deals at this time to sell it because there is an issue with paying restitution and any profits would likely be taken for that purpose.

The “exclusive’ statement makes very little sense. It’s not going to be personal but about how she personally had to deal with what’s going on ….

It’s different with crimes having to do with financial regulations or even traffic crimes, etc. Celebrities often write books about DUIs etc and the Wolf of Wall St def wrote a book 😉

It gives the right of the federal government to seize assets and give them to real victims. Not just to seize assets. And because the original son of sam law has been ruled unconstitutional it is usually dealt with during the plea bargaining phase of sentencing.

Nothing to be sorry about, Jarlath! Just curious as to how. Definitions of “furiously” all have to do with angry and violent underpinnings.

I would have used the words “working passionately,” or “working diligently.” In fact, if I were the copy editor, I would have most certainly altered that.

If you are writer, as you have said you are in another post, you must realize that the dictionary is considered the last word in your profession.

Yes, it is number three. It still has an overall negative connotation, which is very important to consider when writing in context.

I can see where the third definition may make sense when someone or a team that has to go back to the drawing board and redo their work, therefore they would be “working furiously.” Or someone is behind deadline and needs to “work furiously” to hand it in.

Again, in context of this particular item, I would assert that Teresa is working passionately and/or diligently — because she wants her truth out there.
