Teresa Giudice’s lawyer is as out of touch with reality as she is

Teresa Giudice and her husband Juicy Joe appear to be in dire need of a healthy dose of logic and reality, if T’s press tour is any indication.

After the New York Post published details of her bankruptcy filing (which she forgot to tell Bravo about when they were filming Season 2 of Real Housewives of New Jersey), Teresa has been speaking to the press without a filter: letting the world know she has no clue about the basic logic of making and spending money, and believes, much like the Salahis, that she can manipulate reality through her words.

Her lawyer seems to have a similar problem, and doesn’t mind spinning half-truths and obviously contradicting himself to the media.

In July Chapter 7 trustee John Sywilok  investigated the Giudices for concealing assets, most notably Teresa’s advance for her New York Times bestselling cookbook. Reports now reveal that Teresa went on a $60,000 shopping spree for home items days after filing for bankruptcy.

Her lawyer, Larry Kridel, claimed that the money was advance money and she had to spend it because “If she put it in the bank, they’d say, ‘Why don’t you pay your creditors,’ and the trustee might freeze the assets while he investigates whether she can spend it or not.”

There is a flaw in this thinking because they are saying “Why didn’t you pay your creditors?” even thought that money never touched her bank account.
