In some interesting news regarding the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion for season 5, spoilers revealed by Wetpaint leak that Teresa Giudice will bring along her attorney, Henry Klingerman. With the 39-count indictments she and husband, Joe Giudice, are facing for money fraud, bank loan fraud, and allegedly being dishonest about a number of other financial issues, it makes sense why Klingerman was there for the show — which always puts its cast members on the spot during the reunion tapings.
“Teresa wants to clear her name, but she’s extremely limited in what she can talk about,” a source close to the situation shared. “It’s very frustrating to her.”
Teresa’s lawyer will be there to help “coach” her on what she can say during the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion. Her appearance on the show no doubt be closely watched by prosecutors, who are aggressively getting anything they can on the Giudices for the crimes they’re being accused of. In fact, prosecutors are reportedly asking Bravo for non-aired footage of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” to see if any evidence depicting Joe and Teresa spending inappropriately is seen.
The other cast members of “Real Housewives” airing the reunion were Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, Kathy Wakile, Melissa Gorga, and Venus Nicolino, aka Dr. V. — a psychologist who helped Teresa try resolving her family struggles with brother, Joe Gorga.
The first segment of the “Real Housewives” reunion was a long one because host, Andy Cohen, tweeted about the experience on Wednesday!
“15 hour day at the #RHONJ reunion. WIPED from all the drama. Oh, I ate jello!”
