This has been a whirlwind year for Teresa Giudice, her husband Joe, and their four beautiful daughters! She started the year a week out of prison under home confinement, had to say goodbye to her husband Joe as he entered prison 2 months later, and began single motherhood for the next few years; yet Teresa still stands strong and lets nothing get her down!
While she enjoyed every moment with her girls this summer, Teresa did admit it was time for her and the girls to get back to school and into their routine. “It was just me and them and whatever they wanted to do… I had no me time, I couldn’t do my yoga… I was at their beck and call, which I don’t mind, of course,” Teresa explained. Adding, “They make me happy but I can’t wait for [Joe] to come home.”
While Joe has been gone for a little over 6 months, Teresa confessed that the family is still adjusting to life without him at home. “It’s hard, we are just doing the best that we can, getting through it day by day… our family feels incomplete.”
Teresa also revealed that she and the girls visit Joe once a week at “camp” since he is in New Jersey, and he still is VERY involved in their daily lives. “I tell him my every stop,” she said.
Thankfully Joe took a page from Teresa’s book and has been focusing on getting himself mentally and physically healthy behind bars. “He’s just working out like crazy,” Teresa dished. Also mentioning that he has lost 35LBs so far!
Joe did make friends in prison, yet she stated the obvious, “He doesn’t want to be there, taking it day by day, just wants it to be over.”
Teresa is the star of RHONJ, and it looks like that won’t be changing anytime soon! Teresa disclosed that the family will (most likely) continue to film for the show once Joe gets home, and she’s stated multiple times this has become second nature for the family; it has been seven years! “I’m sure all this is going to change him for the better, so why not? I’m sure why not… I want to show my honey off.”
AATRH exclusively told you that Teresa had a contract for last season on DWTS, but ultimately decided she needed to focus on her family; although she hopes to join the cast (and win the mirror ball trophy) in the near future. She echoed this to Extra, “I would love to do ‘DWTS’… I was asked to do it when I first came home.” Adding, “When he comes home, I would love to do it, ’cause I want him to be in the audience.”
Of course she dished on RHONJ, and reiterated that her current relationship with (previously estranged) brother Joe and sister-in-law Melissa is genuine. “The way it always should have been before fame and money got involved,” Teresa said.
While she is on great terms with Melissa, her former BFF Jacqueline is another story! “Jacqueline right now is the problem child.” Teresa teased . Adding that from here on out, “Things are said, things are revealed.”
She wrapped by divulging she couldn’t care less about her desperate cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. “They don’t want a relationship with me, they just want to be on TV.”
