Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice still have almost two months before their fraud trial begins, and the Real Housewives of New Jersey couple seems to be using the time to spend as much time with family as possible!
On New Year’s Day 2014, Teresa, Joe, and their daughters gathered together with their extended family to celebrate the birthday of Joe’s mother, Filomena Giudice. Tre marked the occasion by snapping a cute photo of the entire group to share on Twitter.
“Happy Birthday Nonna...” she captioned the sweet pic, which shows Filomena surrounded by 12 — yes 12 grandchildren — who have gathered to help celebrate her big day. Teresa’s daughters Gia, 12, Gabriella, 9, Milania, 6, and Audriana, 4, are all there, as is Juicy Joe and his lookalike brother, Pete Giudice.
In addition to the Teresa and Joe’s 41 fraud charges, for which they could each spend up to 50 years in prison, Joe has been facing other legal troubles lately, too. On December 17 he appeared in court to determine a court date for his forgery and identity theft charges. Juicy Joe was arrested back in March 2011 for allegedly using his brother's ID to obtain a driver's license. (Just look at the photo, though. The two do look pretty darn similar.)
Pending legal drama aside, we’re glad to see that the Giudices are making the most of the holidays and spending time with their family. When times get tough, the Giudices stick together!
