With her husband Joe Giudice living in Italy and their marriage on rocks, many fans have wondered if the RHONJ OG would give it all up in favor of living a simpler life.
However, in Teresa’s mind leaving RHONJ isn’t even an option.
In a new interview, Teresa insists that RHONJ wouldn’t survive without her as its star.
“Do I see myself [leaving the show]? No. Because hello, what’s my name? Teresa Giudice. I’m the OG,” Teresa revealed to Us Weekly on Sunday, November 3. “If I leave, I think it’s not going to be a show anymore. Not like … I mean, it’s kind of all about me, unfortunately. Not that I even wanted it about me, and I don’t.”
Although, Teresa admits that she “always [goes] back and forth with this question.”
“‘Should I have done it, should I have not done it?’ It’s a hard question,” she said. “Listen, I guess God brought it to me for a reason because I didn’t sign on the dotted line right away. It took me, like, 11 months to say yes to do it. So it’s like, I did think about it almost a year, and then finally I did it.”
“A lot of good and bad came out of it,” Teresa said of RHONJ. “But now, since I’m in it, like, why leave now? I might as well ride the whole wave until I’m done. And thanks for all your support.”
As for her marriage to Joe, Teresa says, “when I go see him in Italy, we’ll figure that out.”
Adding that her four daughters Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 10 are aware that she and Joe are discussing divorce.
“I think they get it,” Teresa stated. “I don’t think they want to see it happen, obviously, but I think they understand.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres on Bravo Wednesday, November 6, at 8 p.m. ET.
