Don't believe the hype! After Teresa Giudice was photographed in Miami with a man identified as Blake Schreck, her lawyer, James Leonard Jr., was quick to shut down the gossip about the nature of their relationship and her marriage to Joe Giudice — using some good, old-fashioned facts and a sprinkling of good humor, poking fun at the whole situation.
“Teresa was in Miami for a charity event with a large group of friends, both men and women. The photos show one of those friends helping Teresa out of the venue and to her car," The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom's attorney told PEOPLE about the photos, which first appeared on Us Weekly.
He added, with a healthy dose of humor: "She had some wine and she was wearing heels."
Her attorney had this message as well: "That’s the real story. There is no cheating, no divorce. End of story.”
Teresa will discuss her current family situation during the RHONJ Season 9 reunion. Part 1 of the three part sit-down kicks off on Wednesday (February 20) — and as seen in the trailer below, she will get into the details of the future as she awaits a decision in connection with an appeal filed by Joe's legal team in the wake of a decision last October that Joe could be deported back to Italy following his prison sentence.
