She is one loyal wife! In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice opened up about how it’s been having her husband, Joe Giudice, in jail on a four-year prison sentence, and what it means for their marriage.
In the mother-of-four’s new book, Standing Strong, she revealed Joe sends her jealous messages from behind bars — but insisted he doesn’t have to worry about her cheating. Is that something he fears could happen? “I don’t know, that’s a question you would have to ask him,” she said during her book signing at 30 Rock on Wednesday. “But, he doesn’t have anything to worry about.”

As far as the messages go, Teresa revealed, “I think that’s going to still keep happening until he comes home. It’s only normal — like, ‘What are you doing?’ But you know, he’s fine with it.” The reality star was even forced to confront cheating rumors among her co-stars, “because somebody was saying that was true and it was like, ‘Why are you saying things that are not true?’”
Joe pled guilty in 2014 after being charged with 39 counts in total, including conspiracy to commit fraud, mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud. Teresa was also found guilty when it came to this matter and served a 15-month sentence and was released in December 2015. Joe checked into Fort Dix Federal Prison in March 2016 to begin his time.
Fortunately for Teresa, her father moved in to help out with her four daughters — Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana. “The girls have busy lives, on competition and club teams — it’s just a lot and they’re getting older. When they were younger, things were easier. When they’re older, there’s a lot more going on. I feel like I’m an uber driver!” she quipped.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
