Teresa Giudice is officially a free woman and she's not letting anything — especially rumors about her marriage — get her down.
In an interview with People magazine the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star, who recently announced plans to return to the show in Season 7, cleared up questions about her and Joe Giudice's relationship. Teresa, 43, told the publication that her husband definitely did not cheat on her while she was in prison. She denied claims that she was approached by a woman alleging that her husband had been unfaithful, calling them "sad." Teresa went on to say that she felt bad for her husband, as numerous women have tried selling photos of them together to stir up trouble. Joe echoed those statements, telling People that his marriage to Teresa has never been in trouble. He added that they are stronger than ever following her prison sentence, which lasted more than a year.
"Our marriage has always been strong. We never had a problem with our marriage," Joe said. "But I definitely learned to appreciate her more not having her around for a year."
In addition to focusing on her marriage, Teresa has been hard at work getting her business affairs back in order. On Monday she confirmed her return to "RHONJ" alongside sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and former cast mate Jacqueline Laurita. According to a brief description of Season 7, released by Bravo Daily Dish, Teresa will spend much of her time on the show trying to mend the relationships she broke ahead of her prison sentence, namely her friendship with Melissa.
Teresa has also been focused on her book, "Turning the Tables: from Housewife to Inmate and Back Again." The tell-all was made available for purchase Tuesday and, as was revealed to People and New York Daily News, features many tales from her time in prison. The Daily News released tidbits of the book on Feb. 1 which detailed embarrassing strip searches, hookups going on around her, and the many fights that took place on her cell block. Another portion of the book, shared with People on Monday, gave fans a glimpse into the night Teresa shipped off to prison. In it she reveals how difficult her imprisonment was on her girls, who broke down upon learning that she would be leaving them for more than a year.
Neither Teresa nor Joe has commented any further on the many cheating allegations swirling right now. The mother of four is likely too busy with her book, for which she is hosting a signing on Tuesday in New York.
