An insider claims, Teresa is convinced being mother to minor children gives her a better chance to escape jail time altogether. As such, she reportedly expects a judge to be lenient.
“Teresa has been telling friends she doesn’t think there is any way the judge will send her to prison because she is a mother of four girls,” a source claimed. “Teresa is planning on saying she just went along with whatever her husband Joe gave her to sign, and never paid attention to the details.”
The source admitted, “[Teresa] continues to live in a dream world, and tells anyone who will listen that she doesn’t even think Joe will go to prison.”
The insider continued, “Lawyers for the couple will ask for leniency and probation for both, with no jail time. Teresa is very positive that the United States Justice Department won’t recommend that she go to jail either. She is very eager to review what prosecutors are asking for. Of course, the judge will have the final say.”
Previously, it was reported that Bravo cameras would be at the Giudice hearing whether the couple liked it or not.
A source claimed, “Teresa doesn’t want cameras from Bravo to be at her sentencing on September 23, and has told producers of the show her thoughts. But Bravo doesn’t care what Teresa wants or thinks, and they are done protecting her.”
The source added, “So, Bravo will absolutely send cameras and will utilize the footage for the reunion show. It’s no secret that the ratings are in the gutter, and Bravo knows there will be a lot of drama during Teresa’s sentencing.”
Once her contract is fulfilled, however, Teresa will not film any additional footage for the show.
She’s also reportedly in danger of being fired for being a “diva”.
