A star of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” is due in court for sentencing today, and TMZ.com reports that Teresa Giudice plans to “throw herself at the mercy of the court.”
Giudice plans to argue that the show is a fake and she’s really a nice person, according to the report.
The story says, “Teresa has filed legal docs in which she argues for NO jail time. She says the judge should not be influenced by her role in ‘RHONJ’ because ‘The image is little more than a carefully crafted fiction, engineered by Bravo TV through scripted lines and clever editing.’”
She is scheduled to be sentenced along with her husband for bank fraud, notes TheWrap.com.
“Joe Giudice is facing a possible sentence of 47 months in prison, followed by deportation. While sentencing for Teresa is expected to be lighter, she is still facing possible time behind bars,” the piece reports.
