As Joe Giudice prepared for his prison sentence, everyone wondered if the RHONJ star would meet RHOA star Apollo Nida, who is serving time at the same facility, in jail. Well, it turns out the two reality TV husbands have met!
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice recently confirmed that Joe and Apollo have met during an interview with Amy Phillips on her Sirius XM radio show.
“Yes, they’ve met, and Joe said he was really nice. Cause my husband didn’t know who he was cause he doesn’t watch the show, so when he got there he met him, and he was really nice,” Teresa revealed.
While Joe and Apollo have crossed paths, Teresa played coy and wouldn’t confirm if the two have sparked any kind of friendship while in prison.
“They met up, so it was nice.I don’t know if they’re in the same area, but they definitely met. So Joe said he was a really cool guy.”
Back in March Apollo’s soon-to-be ex-wife Phaedra Parks offered Teresa some advice as Joe prepared for his prison sentence.
“My advice is always just to [be] prayerful and to just know that you’re not alone. 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,” Phaedra shared.
I think it’s great that Joe and Apollo have met. Perhaps the two can become friends and lean on each other. They both are in very similar situations.
