Fans and followers know Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe Giudice, have had a fairly strong marriage, despite rough times for their family over the last few years. But with Joe serving out a 41-month prison sentence and facing the risk of deportation upon release, it’s possible that Teresa might want to explore other options. According to Us Weekly, she may have been doing just that, when she was spotted on New Year’s Eve getting cozy with a mystery man.
An onlooker told Us Weekly that Tre was “aggressively flirting with and perusing a man in his early 20s” at a Miami club called Big Pink on Dec. 31. “Teresa had her hands on his leg,” the source said. “At points, the two had their hands intertwined, and then the man was rubbing her leg in a romantic way.” Sounds steamy, girl.
You’d think Teresa would be a little more discreet about potentially dipping her toe into the hookup pool, but according to the source, the 46-year-old RHONJ star “didn’t seem like she cared if others were looking.”
Ultimately, however, there apparently wasn’t much need for discretion. “Teresa was out celebrating New Year’s Eve with a large group of men and women while she was in Miami,” the Bravo star’s lawyer, James Leonard, Jr. told Us Weekly in a statement. “They are all friends and have all known each other for a significant period of time. It’s a night out with friends, nothing more than that.”
Teresa and Joe pled guilty to 41 counts of fraud back in 2014, while the 46-year-old father of four also confessed that he hadn’t paid roughly $200k in taxes. Joe has been serving his 41-month sentence since March 2016, just after Teresa was released from her own 11-month sentence in 2015. In October, Joe was ordered by a court to be deported back to his native Italy upon his prison release. Teresa and the Giudice family have since filed an appeal with hopes to overturn the ruling.
While Teresa and Joe’s relationship still seems solid, a lot can happen over the course of a few years, especially while your husband is in jail. So we can only hope that everything will be happy and healthy for them and their children in 2019.
