Coping: Teresa Giudice


Coping: Teresa Giudice

A year ago I wrote an article about Mrs. Giudice entitled ‘Guilty or Guilt By Association’.  Riveting piece; and now that all has played out for America to see and Teresa was sentenced to jail time in Danbury, Ct. it should seem like a closed chapter.   I wanted to author another piece as a follow-up.

While it’s true that there are people who try to trick and deceive our legal system I still don’t believe this was the case for Teresa.  I believe Teresa is a victim of circumstances brought on by her husband.  The lavish life that Teresa sought was only because she was given the ‘green light’ by Joe to spend.  And why?  Because Joe had been committing mortgage fraud and expected to receive hundreds of thousands of dollars from lenders.  Leading his wife to believe he secured positive business contracts and they could afford to live an opulent lifestyle.  Remember, she is a simple woman and she comes from  humble beginnings.

Fast forward– Teresa now sits in Danbury’s minimum security facility; the same institution Martha Stewart served time in completing her 15 month sentence.  One can only hope that the sentence will be a time of reflection for Teresa and even if she intends to remain married to Joe that upon her release; her priorities change.  I can’t imagine going to jail and coming home the way you left.   It has also been reported that the home the couple share in Towaco, NJ has undergone a major price reduction on its sale price by an icy $500K.  So, things are tight.  No report that the home has been sold yet.

The last thing I want is for my audience to think is that I am defending Teresa Giudice.  I’m not.  I just see her husband as the culprit in all of this.  It was his lies, his deception, and his theft that led to this downward spiral of events.  But someone has to pay the piper, right?  We will continue to give updates on Teresa.  So far, her camp has been quiet.  It’s good too that her daughter’s have not been media exposed (as of lately).

Keep your chin up, girl.

Experience Hong Kong

Love... Love…

There is no question Hong Kong has everything to offer.  Perfect views, great weather, along with great tourist attractions.  Hong Kong, hmmmm….what is there to say?  A lot!  Let’s begin with Hong Kong’s airport (code: HKG).  Hong Kong has an extremely busy airport.  The signage within the airport boasts of several languages including English. The airport offers assistance with finding ground transportation or they will answer questions regarding the metro.  In my case, I wanted to take a bus from the airport to downtown Hong Kong.  After receiving instructions on how to do this, I went just outside of the airport where they have a bus depot where all the buses meet.  The ride was close to an hour.  Each stop along the route was announced and shown on a screen at the front of the bus.  In other words, just pay attention for your stops “name.”  This is…

Gracias, Santiago Chile…

Doll's Adventures and Beyond

I have traveled many places, I have seen many faces but none as warm and cordial as the Chilean’s.  I stepped off my aircraft tired and weathered expecting to wait forever in customs.  I had been wrong, their version of TSA proved to be efficient and fast.  The process went as smoothly as a self-checkout line at a local grocery store.  I was in and out.  Although most if not all signage will be in Spanish but you will still be able to navigate the airport to find where you need to go.  Santiago offers so many choices for transportation that you are left wondering what to do.  One of the cheapest ways to go is a “car share” service offered at the airport.  You give the address to where you are going to the transportation counter and pay a set price and the car share will bring you to…
