Teresa Giudice is making it clear that she did not cheat on her husband, Joe Giudice. In a new clip for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, it appeared that Teresa was admitting that she had ‘hooked up’ with someone else.
However; her lawyer is explaining the true story behind that comment. It turns out that what they were talking about – happened 30 years ago!
The family’s attorney, James Leonard Jr. said that Teresa’s oldest daughter Gia called him upset after the clip aired. James said, “She and her sisters have watched both of her parents go to prison, they are right now dealing with the deportation of her father, and then the headline yesterday is that her mother admitted to kissing another man. The problem is, and it always is, nobody ever tells you the full story or the real story.”
He set the record straight and explained, “The real story is that Teresa did kiss the man in the supertease. His name is Tony. She kissed him more than 30 years ago when they were in high school together. But nobody calls to ask, they just write a headline to get clicks.”
James added that he is furious at Bravo for how they are editing this. He also stated that Joe and Teresa are NOT getting divorced despite the reports that state otherwise. He explained, “They have been writing about cheating and divorce rumors for the last 10 years, but guess what? Nobody is cheating, nobody is getting divorced. The truth? Teresa and the girls are going to see Joe the first week of November. They talk and FaceTime every day. Everyone is happy. No one is fighting. There is an amazing story of love and perseverance, but I guess that doesn’t sell magazines or get clicks on websites. Even if you don’t like Joe and Teresa, think about their four daughters and please stop trying to destroy this family. They have been through enough.”
In the clip, Teresa showed her fellow castmates a photo of a guy while having dinner and said, “He’s the one I hooked up with.” Then her brother, Joe Gorga, met with the man in the photo later. Joey asked, “Were you guys messing around?” His friend replied, “We might have kissed.”
Teresa said to her sister-in-law and co-star, Melissa Gorga, “I haven’t been happy in so long. And I just want to be happy again.” She noted to Danielle Staub, “I feel like I’m living the worst nightmare ever.”
Joe’s currently living in Italy, while he’s awaiting his final appeal in the ongoing deportation battle. Joe has lived in the United States since he was a baby, however; he had never officially obtained American citizenship. According to the law, immigrants can be deported if they are convicted of “a crime of moral turpitude” or an “aggravated felony.”
Joe has appealed twice already, but he was denied both times. A final ruling is expected in November. He’s been Facetiming with his family and spending time with relatives in Italy. Joe’s mother and brother are in Italy with him, and Teresa and the girls are going to visit him very soon.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres Nov. 6 (at 8 p.m. ET) on Bravo TV.
I’m wishing all the best for Teresa, Joe and their family. They have all been through so much already. I think certain things are done for ratings and promotion, and this is one of them to promote season 10 of the RHONJ. I believe that this comment was taken out of context. I’m looking forward to next season of the RHONJ! I miss those ladies and I’m ready for them to be back on my screen.
