Despite their earlier plan of requesting separate trials (which I guess didn't look good), Teresa and Joe Giudice are going to plead guilty in court in their mortgage fraud & bankruptcy fraud case.
While reports differ greatly on what may happen to the pair (from Teresa getting no time to two years and Joe taking some kind of deal that would let him escape deportation), it doesn't seem like anyone knows the outcome for sure.
So, here's my theory:
Joe Guidice is going to end up in jail for while. Five years minimum, but I'd say probably more, because he'll take all the jail time so Teresa doesn't end up in the slammer. (He still maintains that she knew nothing, keep in mind.) Teresa will end up on some serious probation. At least five years, in which she'll have to use her fame for community service. Maybe do public appearances to talk about why fraud is wrong and what it can do to a family. I think the judge will realize that keeping Teresa with the kids is a good idea, especially if she has to pay fines for her and Joe's mistakes. (And really, it's way easier to make appearances when you're not in jail!) If anything, they'll lock her up on weekends for a while as to not disrupt the kids' lives more than they already have been. This will make it harder for Teresa to do appearances, but will still give her time to make some money.
It would be interesting to see if the judge blocks Teresa from filming again for The Real Housewives of New Jersey - I wonder if he or she can do that.
What do you think will happen to the Giudice family?
