LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – The Teresa Giudice sentencing date, and Joe Giudice’s reaction to Jim Marchese, may have left some viewers confused on RHONJ this month. Jim Marchese discussed the “prosecution of Joe Giudice” on camera. But by the time the episode aired, the case was already in the sentencing stage.
Teresa Giudice’s sentencing date was not mentioned in the Jim Marchese tirade on RHONJ this month. At the time the scene was filmed, prosecutors were still going after Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice. The pair had not yet pled guilty to the allegations. No plea deal was in place. So when Jim (hands in his pockets) Marchese goes into a tirade about his buddies in the prosecutor’s office, both Teresa and Joe’s cases were still very much up in the air.
Since filming wrapped, Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice pled guilty. A sentencing date was originally set for early summer 2014. But following the death of Joe’s father, the date was rolled over. While Teresa and Joe were originally to be sentenced on July 8, the new Teresa and Joe Giudice sentencing date is September 23, 2014. For more click HERE.
Meantime, one issue remaining up in the air as well is the future of RHONJ. The show’s ratings have been in free fall. RHONJ is produced by the same company that does RHONY which also took a nose dive in ratings last season. So far this season, fans have enraged by the addition of Amber and Jim Marchese to the show. On BravoTV.com this month, virtually all the comments about Jim have been negative. One viewer wrote “Who asked [Jim] to become Joe’s BFF? Love how he called Joey a dumb F–k then made a beeline for the door. His wife is tougher than he is. He should stick to cheesy commercials.” Another viewer wrote “Who would have thought I could like Joe Gorga after last season?” And many have found find Jim to be even worse than Amber. “And yes Amber’s husband is a j–rk. Mr High and Mighty … thinks he is above these characters. Did he think this through before signing on to do the reality show? Looks his eyes were closed when the wallet opened up.”
