“Real Housewives of New Jersey” husband Joe Giudice is making news once again – and this time it has nothing to do with him using his brother’s ID to get himself a driver’s license. New York’s WABC-TV reported last night that Montville’s own “Juicy Joe,” husband of Teresa Giudice, is in hot water for sticking it to tenants who live above his business, Giuseppe’s Homestyle Pizzeria, on Maple Avenue in Hillside. Five families were locked out of their apartments on Wednesday due to fire safety concerns. The power was shut off because of meter tampering, the network said, as well as the landlord’s unpaid PSE&G bill. Hillside Mayor Joseph Menza said the electric company refused to turn the power back on until Joe made good on his $53,000 debt. Joe told reporter Nina Pineda, “… there’s nothing I can do. I don’t own the building,” but it turns out he does, in fact, own it. Then he told Nina he’d tried helping his tenants by installing a generator, which the fire department subsequently shut off because it filled the apartments with deadly carbon monoxide. PSE&G eventually capitulated and turned power back on due to persistent pressure from the township’s mayor and the network. During a final inspection of the apartments, it was also discovered the fire alarms weren’t working, which was apparently because Joe never paid the alarm company. Nina Pineda says that the township plans on citing Joe for putting his tenants’ lives in danger. It sounds like Joe needs a lesson in respecting and valuing the lives of others. Perhaps a viewing of “The Super,” starring another New Jersey native son, Joe Pesci, is in order?

The madness surrounding the young adults series "The Hunger Games" has already begun - and the movie hasn't even been cast yet.

Baloney.

Case in point: Just look what I saw in Hot Topic the other day.
