Woah. Longtime Teresa Giudice supporter Wendy Williams certainly seems to be changing her tune when it comes to the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s upcoming fraud trial. Just last week, Wendy said on her talk show that she does not think Teresa will serve any jail time, but she bets that husband Joe Giudice will.
The couple is facing 41 counts of fraud and could each spend up to fifty years in jail. “Alright 41 counts of fraud, um, I still think he’ll do jail time, but she won’t. Alright maybe six months, but that’s it,” Wendy said on her show.
But according to a new report from Us Magazine (via RadarOnline.com), Wendy says Teresa Giudice is “delusional” if she thinks prison isn’t an option.
“Teresa Giudice is delusional not to think about jail time,” the talk show host tells the mag. “With more legal troubles, she could definitely end up behind bars.”
So why the change of tune? Wendy has long been a supporter of Teresa. In the past, she’s even called Tre her favorite Housewife! Plus, she said just a month ago that she thinks both Teresa and fellow housewife NeNe Leakes both deserve stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
To be honest, we don’t think this quote has to be interpreted as Wendy bashing Teresa. When someone is facing almost fifty counts of fraud, of course they should be aware of the possibility of jail time. If you ask us, Wendy is just stating the obvious. It’s just the specific words she chose that are making the whole thing seem a bit blown out of proportion.
