How can Melissa have a hand in the Guidices' not filing accurate income tax returns for years, or having misstated assets in applications for bankruptcy protection?
It's not even doable. People fill out their own income taxes and make their own statements before the court-- how does Melissa somehow have "something" to do with this, in any scenario in the real world?
Teresa and Joe and no one else profitted from the illegal actions they're charged with-- and when it involved the amount of money Teresa is paid for a book deal, how could Teresa know nothing about it?
As someone said, Teresa knows there's no money tree out there in the backyard-- and in fact, even now, after all these, she continues to spend money lavishly on herself -- and shows no concern and certainly no remorse-- about anything-- but above all about those to whom she owes money who will never recover a penny.
