It’s no secret that last week Joe Giudice surrendered himself to Fort Dix Federal Prison in New Jersey. While Teresa Giudice is one strong woman, times are undoubtedly tough for her and her girls right now. Ironically, Joe Giudice is serving time with fellow house-husband Apollo Nida, and his estranged wife Phaedra Parks has been a single mom for quite some time now.
The Real Housewives franchise is like a sister-hood, and many of the other wives from all-across the country supported Teresa throughout her time away. Phaedra Parks recently spoke to The Daily Dish and shared some advice for the New Jersey mom of 4 as she begins life as a single mom, for at least the next 18 months (or more). “My advice is always just to [be] prayerful and to just know that you’re not alone.” We’ve seen Phaedra on the show, and with the help of her mother Pastor Regina, she’s been able to hold it together and keep things as normal as possible for her two young sons.
Phaedra had some more wisdom for Teresa, adding, “My husband nor her husband are the first husbands to go to prison, they won’t be the last. And you know the most important thing are her children, those beautiful daughters that they have together. And this too shall pass.” I’m sure Teresa appreciates Phaedra’s support very much, and I’m curious if the two have privately spoken.
Teresa will hold it together and thrive in this tough situation, she has no other choice. Luckily it won’t be AS much as an adjustment for the girls since they’ve already been through this, but with that being said of course it won’t be easy!
Bravo loves drama, and I see a RHONJ/RHOA cross-over coming very soon; maybe next season Phaedra will go visit Apollo the same weekend as Teresa and the girls, and the two families will hang out after; hey a girl can hope right!
As always, the AATRH team is sending out prayers to Teresa, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, and the rest of the Giudice family during this difficult time.
Are you surprised Phaedra is supporting Teresa? Do you think Teresa will do okay without Joe? Would you like to see Phaedra & Teresa in a housewives cross-over?
