Next, we go to Chris and Albie's apartment in Hoboken. Greg is there, as is Lauren. It's raining, and everyone has ordered pizza. Except Lauren got salad too! Dude, but it has a metric ton of meat on it. This is not so much a problem for Lauren, who makes a perfunctory attempt not to eat the cheese in the salad before eating the cheese in the salad. Chris notes that it must be hard for Lauren to try to lose weight when everyone around her eats so damn much. He suggests that she go to Italian rehab, which I guess involves detoxing from pepperoni for 70 days. Poor Lauren.
And then we are back with Jacqueline and Chris, who are reading an issue of In Touch or some similarly trashy mag that has an article all about Teresa's combined money and legal troubles. It turns out that bankruptcy trustees allege that Teresa knowingly withheld assets, including a $250,000 advance for her cookbook. So, according to the article, both Teresa and Joe could theoretically go to jail. Jacqueline pretends not to see this as a positive development.
We then head to the layer's office with Teresa and Juicy. Their lawyer, James, tells them that they signed the bankruptcy petition jointly, but the resolution of each person will be a separate matter. It turns out that Juicy for some reason or other will not need a trial, and they're moving forward to concluding his bankruptcy issue. Does this mean he WON'T go to jail? Or is that a separate thing? I'm on the side of whatever could send him to the clink for the indefinite future. As for Teresa, they've made an offer to the U.S. Trustee's Office and the Chapter 7 Trustee, which has not been accepted at this point. If they can settle her issues, the process will be resolved much more quickly than if she has to go to trial, obviously. Teresa says that God puts you through tests in life. Don't I know it.
