Joe Giudice is currently slated to spend more than three years in federal prison for varying types of fraud, but he won’t let the physical distance between he and wife Teresa Giudice ruin their marriage.
According to an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the father of four has gone to great lengths to keep the romantic spark alive. Teresa told the publication that since entering prison in March, her husband has been sending x-rated emails to her. The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star did not go into detail about what the messages say. Teresa, 44, added that Joe is holding up behind bars, and she is handling things at home. He is no longer drinking which is helping him to stay “focused.”
“I’m not going to say what the emails say,” Teresa joked. “He’s doing good. You know, being positive, and we’re just both taking one day at a time.”
While Teresa withheld the details of her and Joe’s adult emails, she is gearing up to let fans into her life once more. The “Fabulicuious! On the Grill” author will be featured in Season 7 of “RHONJ.” Andy Cohen, who created the “Real Housewives” empire, recently opened up about Teresa’s return to the show, assuring fans that it’s going to be “raw.” In an interview with ET, the “Watch What Happens Live” host said that he had watched and rewatched Teresa’s return home from prison on the show and got emotional each time. He teased “a different Teresa” in Season 7, adding that going to prison changed her relationships with both family and friends.
“It’s the realest, most raw moment that I’ve ever seen. When you see those four girls jump in her arms, it’s like nothing I’ve seen.”
Teresa returned home from prison on December 23, 2015, finishing out her 15-month sentence on house arrest. Months later, Joe reported to Fort Dix, New Jersey, to begin serving his 41-month sentence. TMZ was able to obtain several photos of Teresa and Joe, 44, enjoying their final moments together, hugging and holding hands. One photo captured the couple’s final kiss before Joe entered the prison. The “RHONJ” star thanked fans for standing behind her during this difficult time.
“RHONJ” premieres Sunday, July 10 at 8 p.m. EDT, on Bravo.
