Joe Giudice's New Reality Show While Teresa Is In Prison Might Not Be The Best Thing For The Family — REPORT
Having their criminal exploits exposed to the entire world may have threatened to sink Joe and Teresa Giudice's reality TV ship, but that same vessel may be what keeps the Bravo-lebrities afloat in the near future. According to E! Online, Joe Giudice might star in a new reality show. However, in stark contrast to the table-flipping, gossip-mongering antics on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Giudice's latest proposed project will reportedly focus on his time at home with the couple's four daughters while their mother, Teresa, serves a 15-month prison sentence for fraud and tax evasion.
E! also reports that Teresa has yet to give her consent to the new show, but something tells me that she probably prefers extending the family's ties to reality TV to say, continuing to promote her Fabellini wine brand and cookbooks.
However, despite the new show aiming to focus less on the drama and more on revamping the family's image, it still feels like a really bad idea, sort of like Gia Giudice's proposed reality show. Quite frankly, the negative press stirred up by the Giudice family's federal convictions and subsequent jail sentences have pushed them way past the point of being able to clean up their image and successfully sell themselves as this typical, cookie-cutter family thriving in the face of adversity.
While it's certainly a good thing that the Giudices are actively seeking out legal money-making ventures, they're doing so at the risk of continuing to highlight their criminal convictions (which cannot be avoided), and may not be the best decision when it comes to the well-being of their children. Their oldest daughter Gia may have put on a brave face when discussing her parents' predicament, but the idea that the Giudices fully intend to continue capitalizing off their infamy in front of the cameras instead of laying low throughout this ordeal suggests that their judgment is still highly questionable.
