Fans Show Up In Masses For Teresa Giudice Book Signings Despite Legal Scandal
Teresa Giudice is still packing them in.

Despite her ongoing legal problems, the lynchpin of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is still selling books, and “seems to be fine” despite the fraud charges levied against her and her husband, Joe, according to her pal, Kim Depaola.

Depaola was at Teresa’s book signing held at her Wayne, New Jersey boutique Posche, and says that despite the accusations against the reality star, her fan base is intact, as “she sold out all of her books.

“Sold out and needed more, so she still has a lot of support,” Depaola said. “The line was crazy… a lot of fans. And that’s it on that question.”

Depaola said that both Teresa and her husband Joewho is also under legal fire as he was named in the indictment — kept in good spirits at a dinner after the event. (As we previously reported, the Bravo stars, in a 39-count indictment, are accused of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.)

Kim said that despite the rough patch, Teresa is keeping busy with the typical activities that have moms occupied in the dog days of summer.

“She’s with her daughters, she’s with her kids,” Kim said. “She was going down the shore. Next week, she will be home a lot because Gia has cheerleading and of course all the school stuff starts.”
