Teresa Giudice Didn't Understand Anything About Finances, Says Former Attorney

Originally posted 10/08/2014 07:45PM

While Teresa Giudice may have pleaded guilty to bank and wire fraud charges in connection to a long-running financial conspiracy with husband Joe Giudice, her former attorney Jim Kridel – who represented the couple back in 2010 in their original bankruptcy case – says it's possible she may have committed the crimes unknowingly.

"I did not believe that Teresa was all that knowledgeable about any of the finances of her family until ultimately she became the breadwinner," Kridel tells PEOPLE.

"Everyone seems to blame her that she knew or should have known. I don't find that to be true in real life, though," he says. "People come in and sign tax returns quite often, and the spouse who is not in charge of the finances has no information. They just do what the accountant tells them."

Porsha Williams will only have a "recurring role" in the new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Bravo announced Wednesday.

Williams infamously fought with frenemy Kenya Moore during the spring taping of the reunion special, and their brawl landed her in jail on a battery charge.

Now, the network says, the ex-wife of football player Kordell Stewart is "enjoying a fresh chapter in her life" as a single woman and entertainment correspondent on Dish Nation.

However, "the tests were inconclusive," an emotional Marchese told her husband after her doctor called about her bloodwork. "He wanted me to return for more testing … that's never happened. If I have a relapse, it doesn't look so good. You know that."
