It looks like there won't be any pool parties in Teresa Giudice's backyard anytime soon. In the midst of a massive financial fraud scandal that could land both Teresa and her husband Joe Giudice in jail for up to 50 years, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has wisely decided to nix her plans to have a pool built on her property.

According to a RadarOnline source, "Teresa had planned to put a pool in the yard of her house and she was going to spend $50,000 for it, but she couldn’t go forward with it given the case against her and her husband."

Considering that the prosecutors are trying to build a case that Teresa and Joe do a lot of unnecessary spending, it's probably a good idea for Giudices to skip the swimming oasis for now.

Although, the source wouldn't be surprised if Teresa ended up moving forward with the plans eventually.

“Teresa and Joe haven’t paid so many of their bills, maybe they weren’t planning to pay this one? Teresa really still wants the pool, so maybe she’ll get it after all," the source continues.

As much as we love a poolside oasis, Tre and Juicy Joe might want to keep their spending to a minimum. The couple is set to go to trial on October 8 for 39 counts of federal fraud.
