Bravo must be embarrassed to be associated with these scumbags. If they continue to pay and star these criminal's in the RHNJ, it's an insult to all the honest hard-working people in this Country ! Fire them !!

I found it interesting that when @bravoandy asked if they knew they were being investigated, they answered at the same time, only Teresa said no and Joe said yes. Joe I believe just stuck papers in front of Teresa and she signed them, or else he signed them for her and she can't admit to that without throwing her husband under the bus. And he says he wasn't drunk driving!!!!! then why take a plea. Joe is heading to prison, you can bet on that one. Yep Teresa used all cash first two seasons, cause they had all that cash he borrowed by forging his partners signature on loan papers. That's why  and how he got caught.

"Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive" (paraphrased).  I think the fact that they did not file taxes for all those years alone speaks volumes!  In order to get loans you have to prove income which means  in some cases you also have to submit your tax returns...so it stands to reason that the forms they filed with the banks were clearly fraudulent.  Even if their accountant was allegedly "cooking the books", they would have known it when applying for loans because they would have to see a copy of their tax returns.  None of their excuses make any sense.  Also, I thought that based on the season finale, that the families were in a good place with each other now.  This does not seem true with some of the comments Teresa and Joe both made, especially the comment about why the kids would be with Joe's siblings and not with JOey and Melissa.

Not that they shouldn't be punished but if they have to go, the Gorga's and Laurita's should be with them because they all have tax and fraud charges. I'm not surprised that they did not go into details, who would. This part of the show is real and it should be tried in court not spoken for the sake of high ratings. They really messed up and I'm sure they know it but they do have 4 children possibly watching and if that was not their focus then, it is now. Tre is not the only housewife that went fame crazy, rent a bus and load each all the casts from all the shows.  In every show, someone is pretending to be someone. Lynn in Orange County was evicted 4 times, living like grifters.

I love Teresa and I don't want anything to happen to her. Andy please be nice to Teresa, you're always so nice to the rest of the cast but are so hard on Teresa. You never ask the other housewives anything about their issues, you keep all their skeletons hidden and constantly go after Teresa. I like you Andy but I would like you a lot more if you were just as tough on the rest of the cast.

I'm wondering the same thing Andy....why did you do this interview?! I mean I ADORE you don't get me wrong, but did you really think Teresa and Joe would own up to anything?! Do they ever?!  And how they just sit there and act like they have no idea why this is happening....come on....nobody believes them!!!!  And I can remember years ago Teresa going shopping and buying a ton of things for their house with cash.....so obvious that she was trying to impress people with how much money she supposedly had....pathetic really.  Get her off the show....she's nothing but a joke anymore!!!

I don't believe that they don't know how serious these charges are. They should stop doing the show and get

their lives together for their children and themselves. I like what Joe said about his girls. They would go with is

brother or sister. You can see how much he loves them.

Teresa and Joe need to understand that ignorance of the law is not a defense. With that said, I don't believe for one minute that they did nothing wrong. A lot of this started way before they were on the show. Joe and Teresa are the type that give Italians a bad name.

Why Andy did you do this interview? They said nothing. We all knew that they were going to "plea the fifth"on everything and act like they had no idea why these charges where brought against them. They just didn't come out of thin air. Joe even said they knew about it for a couple of years. To come up with 39 charges, they did there work to come up with that many. It is called karma. The way I see this season is Teresa had to eat some crow and come clean because now they will need character witness and the friends she was hanging with where some shady people.  Time to get off the show and get your life straight.

I cannot believe Joe and Teresa aren't owning up to any of the charges.  Teresa keeps saying she can't believe this is happening to her, and that she didn't do anything.  I guess that means the Federal government has just made up all these charges without one iota of evidence.  Teresa doesn't own up to the charges, just like it took until the season finale of RHNJ for her to own up to being involved with all the lies ad rumors about Melissa.  She keeps talking about how strong she's being for her kids.  I think that's going to come around and bite her on the butt.The kids are going to find out their parents lied, cheated, and intentionally committed several crimes -- and continued to lie and lie about it.  The children are innocent, yet they will pay the price.

I have a different take on this.  People with that much money hire accountants.  They just sign the paper work.  Who knows??  If they did wrong then they should go to jail.  50 years is a lifetime.  I did think the final show was everyone was cordial for a change.  Maybe the storyline is over - whoot whoot!!  Now what?

Please 50 years? There are mother's that have killed their children who don't get 50 years! The courts are making an example of them. I feel sorry for their children.

No Teresa it is 50 years per person!  You are asking 'why this is happening to me', well why do you think.  You lied and committed fraud for an 8 year span.  It is against the law!  Maybe you should have thought about your kids instead of the latest Louis Vuitton handbag and Gucci crystal/china you would not be in this trouble!

 Are you kidding?  Bravo loves this kind of drama.  I hope Teresa and Joe remain on the show, and I wish them well.  Without Teresa, RHONJ will cease to exist, at least as far as I am concerned.

 I think he is just as hard on other cast mates....unfortunately Teresa's dirty laundry is constantly being put out there and a lot of it by her own doings because she's always doing magazine articles and because she is constantly showing her life to all of America....which of course makes it easier for people to find dirt on her!!!  He's just doing his job and I feel that he is very fair...also a lot of things he asks is because the viewers want to know :)

@ladyzt A bit angry are we??? How do you know that Joe kept everything from her or not. As SHE said she didn't know any of the finacials. I guess you are perfect?!?!? Never a misatke made?!?!?! They are not the first that this has happened to, so do you critizise the others as well?!?!?! if they were not in the public eye's, no one would shive-a-git...

@ardelle Accountants just dont cook up stuff without your permission - more than likely, they asked their accountant to do this for this... they probably even gave the accountant a cut...

Isn’t it your responsibility to know what your own accountants are doing with your money?  If you just “sign the paperwork” without looking at it or discussing it with the people you hired, you are a fool for not being responsible for your own money.  Ignorance is not only no excuse, it is just plain stupid when it can cost you your freedom.

@dfernandez58 Agree - 50 years is way too much time. If they found something out, then just tell them to repay and give fines.... 50 years come on now!

@Robinlynn Please,,, I know contractors that go for ten plus years leading subcontractors on, never paying them, and when they are pressed for it, they declare bankruptcy, and wipe their hands of it, after having robbed someone out a life savings, (it happened to a personal friend). Ive seen teachers that seduce a young teen student, and only get six months. I'm not trying to justify the Giudice's wrong doings, but according to what some extremist say, sorry 50 years doesn't fit the crime. For some reason, someone has decided the Giudice's are the last straw, and they think they need to nail them! There are people that have done much, much worse, dealing with a few of the same crimes, yet, involved and really hurt others. These two have only hurt and embarrassed themselves, for lack of knowing how to be savvy in their somewhat stupid actions. They are being held as an example to all.
