On Thursday The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Joe Giudice and Teresa Giudice were sentenced in their federal fraud case with Joe getting 41 months in prison and Teresa receiving a 15-month sentence set to begin January 5. (Joe’s sentence will start after Teresa’s.) One day after their sentencing Joe and Teresa sat down with Andy Cohen for a Watch What Happens: Live interview that will air Monday night.
Andy shared the photo above on instagram Friday and wrote, “Just spent a few hours interviewing Teresa & Joe Guidice. See it Monday night on Bravo.” In the picture both Andy and Teresa appear serious while Joe has his usual smirk.
The announcement that the couple would be featured on the show has sparked quite a debate among commenters, with many upset that the Giudices are being given even more time in the spotlight. “As much as I love Bravo television I am angered that they have given these felons an opportunity to make more money and a venue to glorify their felonious lifestyle,” one commenter wrote, before adding, “Poor taste.”
Another commenter wrote, “I think its great yr having them on,” before suggesting that “these judgmental perfect people look in mirror!!!” The commenter concluded by pointing out, “People make mistakes.”
Perhaps one commenter said it best when she said of this potential ratings bonanza for Bravo, “setting my DVR now!!!!”
And if you want to set your DVR, or if you plan on tuning in “live,” Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens: Live interview with Joe Giudice and Teresa Giudice is set to air Monday night at 9/8c on Bravo.
Will you be tuning in? (We certainly will, because you know, it’s our job and everything.) What are they chances they will play “Plead the Fifth?”
