At the end of the episode, Joe and Teresa quietly decided to end their 20-year marriage after reuniting in Italy.
While Joe seemed to want to try and give his marriage to Teresa another shot, the RHONJ OG wasn’t on the same page. Teresa admitted to Joe that too much had happened over the last five-plus years to save their marriage.
Now Joe is speaking out. In a statement on Instagram, Joe opens up about the end of his marriage while also vowing to remain a family and co-parent with Teresa.
“Teresa and I share a bond that can never be broken,” Joe explains. “We have both been through something that has brought so much hurt and heartache into our lives, for this is something that I must live for rest of my life. We are both strong, we are both survivors and only want best for our daughters. No matter what past is done.”
He continued, “We want to go forward to teach girls all marriages do not end in hate. Love is real and co-parenting is possible. Our daughters are always loved by both of us and now it’s time to start new chapter in our lives!”
The three-part RHONJ season 10 reunion kicks off on Wednesday, March 4 at 8/7c.
