Andy Cohen Claims Felons Teresa and Joe Giudice Are ‘In Complete Denial’ In New Tell-All Book
Andy Cohen may have defended longtime pals Teresa and Joe Giudice on EXTRA earlier this month— but in his revealing new book, the Watch What Happens Live host and Bravo honcho shares his true feelings about the convicted felon couple.

In a September 22, 2013 entry in his diary-style read The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look At a Shallow Year, Cohen recalls interviewing the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars that day about their shocking indictment on 39 counts of fraud.

“It was like pulling teeth,” the outspoken star, 46, says. “They are either very un-introspective or in complete denial. Or both.”

Cohen then notes that the ditzy twosome didn’t seem to fully comprehend the cold hard consequences of their illegal behavior.

“I said, ‘So…you guys are facing fifty years in prison, and they were like, ‘Is it fifty years? We thought it was a hundred. Is it fifty years both or just one or…’” he writes. “So that’s something they are going to want to clarify with their attorneys.”

In March, Teresa and Joe, both 42— who originally faced 50 years each behind bars— plead guilty to the charges in a plea deal, and were sentenced to 15 months and 41 months respectively in October.

The parents to four daughters sat down with Cohen post-sentencing to publicly discuss their fate.
“I mean, it was very unexpected, I don’t even know what to say,” Teresa said.
