Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, has written three New York Times best-selling books: “Skinny Italian,” “Ryan Phillippe!,” and “Fabulicious! Fast & Fit.” She’s Bravo’s #1 Best-Selling Author. Teresa is about to go to jail for 15 months on multiple charges of fraud but her name on a cookbook can still help sell books. Teresa’s cousin Kathy Wakile knows this, that’s why she asked Teresa to write a blurb for her dessert cookbook, “Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts that Keep Life Real Sweet.”
Here’s the problem with the request. For starters, Teresa hasn’t seen Kathy in about nine months. She shows up now when Teresa has two months to spend with her husband and daughters before reporting to jail on January 5. Plus, didn’t Kathy accuse Teresa of stealing a pizzelle recipe from Kathy’s mother and using it in Fabulicious!? If Teresa needed another reason to say no to Kathy, all she had to do was find that big English dictionary Kathy gave Teresa as “a gag gift” for Christmas last year.
