'Real Housewives NJ' fact vs. fiction?: Joe Giudice's accident and DUI
"The Real Housewives of New Jersey's" Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe Giudice, seem to be attracting all the wrong kind of attention. Not only have they claimed a very publicly embarrassing bankruptcy, but Monday's (August 9) episode features the car accident Joe was in back in January of this year.
When it came to the excuses about the bankruptcy, we've already seen some major bobbing and weaving from Teresa. But, now it seems that the accident and subsequent DUI charge will bring with it more excuses from Joe.
In the episode, Jacqueline Laurita and her husband, Chris, come over after the accident. Joe describes driving late at night and closing his eyes for one second from sleepiness and then running his car off the road, through some trees, then hitting a telephone pole. He claims he wasn't drinking and Jacqueline attests that when they went out earlier that same night for dinner, he didn't drink any alcohol.
According to reports at the time, though, Joe's story doesn't match up with police records. After responding to the 911 call, police arrived at the scene of the accident and Joe was taken to Morristown Memorial Hospital. While there, blood was drawn that found Joe's blood alcohol level above the legal limit. Montville police then charged him with a DUI.
Then, as if the poor guy didn't have enough to deal with that night, the police found he had outstanding warrants in the neighboring town of Clifton. The Clifton police then took custody of Joe and he was released later that day.
Watch as Joe denies he drank the night of the accident:
We're sorry, Joe, but it's hard to believe the police and the hospital got it all wrong!
