10 revelations from Joe and Teresa Giudice's sentencing hearing "Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Joe and Teresa Giudice's plea deal circumvented what was expected to be a juicy trial, but today's sentencing hearing turned up a number of interesting revelations of the couple's long-running legal and personal troubles:

1. When discussing Joe's criminal history, assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Romankow described an incident from 1992 in which Joe smashed a woman's head into a mailbox. (Feinstein later said Joe denies the claim.)

2. Joe's lawyer Miles Feinstein told the court that Joe appears to have a drinking problem (okay, maybe his 2010 DUI was a clue) and would benefit from a residential alcohol treatment program.

5. Feinstein described for the judge the death of Joe's father from the massive heart attack, saying Joe found his father on the ground near the chicken coop, and that Joe did everything he could, but Frank died in his arms.

6. Filomena Giudice, Joe's mother, blames herself for never having Joe, whom she bought to America when he was 1, naturalized as a U.S. citizen, Feinstein says. He also says that Joe didn't know he wasn't an American citizen until legal proceedings but he doesn't say which proceedings....
