Teresa Giudice is a good girl after all! At the Wine Enthusiast's Toast of the Town event in NYC on May 3, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star revealed to Life & Style that she didn't lose her virginity until she married husband Joe-- at age 27!
"I've known Joe my whole life," shares Teresa, who tied the knot with Joe in 1999. "We grew up together and we were friends but we didn't get together until we knew we were going to be serious."
Her secret to staying married for 12 years? "We're each other's best friends and we tell each other everything," Teresa tells Life & Style. "We just let each other be our own person and we let each other grow. I think that's really important."
Teresa tells Life & Style it was "definitely" worth the wait. In fact, she hopes her four daughters also wait, though, she admits, "I don't know in this day and age if that's going to happen."
