RHONJ’s Teresa Giudice & Family Are All Smiles In This New Prison Portrait!

Things are getting real for Teresa Giudice!


On Monday, as the Real Housewives of New Jersey star continues her 15-month prison sentence for fraud, a new photo (above) shows how the reality star is doing in the big house!

The family portrait features her four children and husband, Joe Giudice, which is believed to have been snapped on Mother’s Day.

And the whole Giudice clan appears to be all smiles in the sweet moment with their behind bars matriarch. So that’s good!

Teresa’s attorney James L. Leonard stated in a previous interview:


“As far as prison goes, she’s maintaining. She’s adjusted well, she has a routine and she just takes it one day at a time. She’s spending more time outside. There is a track so she’s been walking and running on the track a lot.”

Well that’s good to hear.

We’re glad to see that the whole family seems happy — especially after those pesky rumors that Joe had Samary Graulau as a side piece while his wife served time.

Unfortunately, the Fabulicious! author isn’t expected to be released until the middle of December — and we’re more than ready to get all the details about her time “inside.”

Nonetheless, we’ll be able to read about Teresa’s whole story when she pens her upcoming memoir. We bet it’s going to be juicy!

As always, our thoughts are with Teresa and her family during this difficult time.

Slim But Too Tall for Petites: When Are Alterations Worth It?

When Are Alterations Worth It? | CorporetteIf you’re slim with a small frame, but too tall for petite sizes, where do you shop? If your clothes don’t fit you well, when is it worth it to pay for them to be tailored — and when is it time to look for better-fitting replacements instead? Reader K wonders…

I’m interested in learning more about when alterations are worth it. I’m very thin and having a harder and harder time finding clothes off the rack that fit me — even a 00 from J. Crew is frequently too big, I can’t shop in the petite section because I’m too tall. I also have a hard time with dresses and some structured pieces because even though most of my measurements are a 00 or smaller, my natural waist is often closer to a 2. I have a bunch of work pieces that I really like — or would really like if I was not swimming in them and constantly ending up with my skirt on backwards after my walk from the subway. Am I better off getting my existing wardrobe altered or trying to sell my better stuff on consignment to fund replacement pieces? I can’t afford a full wardrobe from Theory or another designer that actually makes small clothes for women who are not 5’4″ or shorter.

Great question! We’ve talked about the most common alterationshow to tailor a suit, and the perfect pants fit, but we haven’t discussed tailoring in a while. A few things come to mind:

  • Stop buying things that don’t fit. If you’re truly swimming in the pieces you mentioned, then they’re not doing you any favors.
  • Cull your wardrobe immediately. Figure out which things kind of fit you (or are supposed to be loose) — shift dresses, shirt dresses, sweaters, blousy tunics, etc. — all of those pieces you can keep. Pull out anything that you’re “swimming” in and put it into piles: tailor, sell, donate.
  • Assess the tailor pile — with the help of a tailor. A seasoned tailor will be able to tell you what’s an affordable alteration plan for a garment versus what is going to ruin the lines of the garment, or be prohibitively expensive. Don’t feel obligated to get everything tailored in that first visit. Pick two or three pieces to start (your favorites, the ones that fill your wardrobe holes, the ones that are most affordable to tailor) and hold the rest — you want to make sure you like the tailor’s work before you spend hundreds of dollars.
  • Look at the wardrobe you’re left with. Where are there holes? If you’re missing a blazer, sheath dress, pencil skirt, and trousers, you’re looking at a new suit — and I would just suggest looking for one from a brand that’s petite-friendly. Alterations Needed and Extra Petite are both great places to start for inspiration (although both bloggers are under 5’2″).
  • Call a personal shopper. A lot of stores offer these, but readers have raved about Nordstrom’s personal shopping service, where they offer a huge range of clothes (and their big anniversary sale is just about to start!). Tell the shopper you’re looking for budget-friendly pieces to buy as well as a few classic pieces to stalk. (If you don’t have a store nearby, Nordstrom’s online customer service is excellent — and the site offers free shipping and free returns.)
  • Educate yourself about which brands to stalk. I would guess that very high-end clothing is going to be better suited for a willowy frame — so make a trek to Bergdorf Goodman or Saks. A friend of mine who’s very slender says she’s had luck with Rebecca Taylor, Nanette Lepore, and (some) Theory, as well as blazers from Aritzia.
  • Finally: If you really find yourself in need of a last-minute blazer or dress or some such, consider stores designed for teenagers or even children. Watch the hemlines very carefully, as well as the general cuts.

I know readers have had mixed experiences, but I just had a good experience with thredUP — I sent in a bunch of old clothes of mine (and kids’ clothing as well), some new with tags, and wound up with a $41 credit. Which isn’t that impressive, admittedly, but you get a 40% off discount the first time you send something in, so I turned around and used the $41 credit and discount toward a black jersey David Meister dress and a Rag & Bone blazer, spending only an additional $44. So if you’re ready to part with a lot of your wardrobe, send it in and do your research on which brands to use the credit/discount on.

Readers who are extra small but not petite, where do you like to shop? What clothing have you had success with tailoring?

A useful #Eurogroup. Now waiting for an #ESM-request from #Greece. Then normal procedures. After interviews wheels up from #Brussels.

Greek people suffering an appalling trauma. Deal needed for certainty, stability & hope.

CBS News Law Enforcement Source: Subway’s Jared Fogle Suspect In Child Porn Investigation

ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A law enforcement source said Subway restaurant spokesman Jared Fogle is a suspect in a child pornography investigation, CBS News reported.

FBI agents and Indiana State Police raided Fogle’s home on Tuesday, removing electronics from the property and searching the house with a police dog.

MORE: Full Coverage From CBS News

FBI Special agent Wendy Osborne said the FBI was conducting an investigation in Zionsville, an affluent Indianapolis suburb, but wouldn’t say whether it involved Fogle or describe the nature of the investigation.

Fogle, wearing tan shorts and a dark T-shirt, was photographed early Tuesday by The Indianapolis Star stepping out of a police evidence van parked outside his home.

Late Tuesday morning an armed officer with a badge on his belt briefly stepped outside Fogle’s house wearing a blue T-shirt reading, “U.S. Postal Inspector Police,” then went back inside.

Fogle, 37, became the Subway restaurant chain’s pitchman after shedding 245 pounds more than 15 years ago, in part by regularly eating Subway sandwiches. Subway began featuring Fogle in commercials soon after, and his story was instrumental in giving the sandwich chain an image as a healthy place to eat.

He has since worked to create awareness of childhood obesity through his Jared Foundation.

Calls to Fogle’s home went unanswered Tuesday. A representative for Subway, Cindy Carrasquilla, did not respond to emails or phone messages seeking comment.

WTHR-TV and The Indianapolis Star reported Fogle was detained while electronics were removed from the home and analyzed inside a mobile forensics van Tuesday morning. Fogle was seen leaving the van.

Neighbors said the family entertained frequently and would say hello but that they didn’t see Fogle and his wife outside a lot.

Jacob Schrader, 19, who lives across from Fogle’s house, said the pitchman seems “like a pretty private guy” and that he’d only seen him about a dozen times in the last five or six years.

“He’s like an endangered species or something like that,” Schrader said.

Subway, which is based in Milford, Connecticut, and is privately held, has struggled in recent years. Last year, industry tracker Technomic said average sales for Subway stores in the U.S. declined 3 percent from the previous year.

The company has about 44,000 locations around the world.

Steven Souza Jr. Injury: Updates on Rays OF’s Finger and Return

The Tampa Bay Rays placed outfielder Steven Souza Jr. on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday with a finger laceration on his right hand.

Continue for updates.

No Structural Damage For Souza; John Jaso Activated

Tuesday, July 7

The Rays announced designated hitter John Jaso was being activated from the 60-day disabled list to replace Souza on the 25-man roster. He had been sidelined with a wrist injury.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reported there was no break or tendon damage in Souza’s injured finger, but he’ll still require the DL stint to let it fully heal.

Souza is hitting just .210 with a .301 on-base percentage this season. Despite those lackluster numbers, he does have 15 home runs and 10 stolen bases to go along with eight outfield assists. So his presence will still be missed in the lineup and in the field.

Tampa is likely to go with a heavy rotation in the outfield while he’s sidelined. Joey Butler, Brandon Guyer, Grady Sizemore and David DeJesus could all see a slight uptick in playing time.

Since the move was backdated to July 6, Souza will be eligible to come off the DL on July 21.
