A sentencing is not exactly a life event that many people throw parties for, but Teresa Giudice and her husband went against the flow and hit the club last weekend for hers. The star of reality show The Real Housewives of New Jersey and her husband Joe Giudice recently hosted a “Stay Strong” party on the weekend before their October 2 sentencing at Pure Lounge in Parsippany, New Jersey.
According to RadarOnline.com, the Giudices partied with friends and family, looking as if they had no worries ahead. They reportedly joked around and ate cake to celebrate the couple’s last days of freedom. Teresa’s sentencing on Thursday has her facing up to 27 months in prison for mail and wire fraud, bankruptcy fraud and failure to pay taxes, but this didn’t seem to dampen anyone’s spirits at the party.
The Giudice party might not look good for Teresa in terms of her legal issues. RadarOnline.com reported that Teresa’s lawyers have already reprimanded their client for agreeing to sport a $2,000 Valentino bag on a recent episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

“After reading the report of Teresa carrying such a high priced designer bag, her lawyers were furious. It just looks bad after coming out of her bankruptcy drama. Teresa told her attorneys that the producers asked her to carry the designer handbag, and she felt obligated to do so, but they were still mad and told her to keep quiet,” said an insider.
The source further revealed that Teresa’s reality fame is hurting her. “All of her bad behavior is caught on camera, and there is a chance the judge or prosecutors could use that against her,” the source said.
Because of this, Teresa’s lawyers have placed a gag order on her, banning her from posting on social media until after her sentencing. On September 23, Teresa announced on her Bravo blog that she would be keeping mum for a while but would update her fans as soon as she could.
