Teresa Giudice may be serving out a 15 month prison sentence, but that hasn’t stopped her and husband Joe Giudice from getting hot and heavy -- sort of, anyway. The couple, and their four children, landed a Bravo TV spinoff in April, which will reportedly focus on their lives without Teresa, 43. New reports suggest the special, titled “Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Checks In,” will provide viewers with an inside look at Joe's life as a temporary single parent and a glimpse into he and Teresa’s relationship.
According to TMZ, “Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Checks In” will feature multiple phone conversations between Teresa and her family. During one particular phone conversation Teresa will take a timeout from being the somber woman heard in previous clips to get intimate with her 43-year-old hubby on the phone. The star of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” pleads with Joe to engaged in a racy conversation, which he simply laughs off. His wife then reveals that she’s spent a lot of time behind bars fantasizing about her man, sharing that she once watched “Magic Mike” all the while pretending Joe was Channing Tatum. The site also reports Teresa will confirm to Bravo, and Joe, that she has not had any romantic relationships with women behind bars, but says it’s a very real thing in the facility she’s at.
As we previously reported, the show will center on Joe and the trials and tribulations he has faced while parenting his daughters alone since Jan. 5. Previews for “Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Checks In” show the reality star dad brushing his children’s hair and working hard to keep eldest daughter, Gia, away from boys. While there are many lighthearted moments for Joe and his girls, he has also faced his fair share of struggles, like coping with the fact that he may be deported due to the charges against him. One clip shows someone asking whether or not he could see his wife and kids uprooting to Italy “if, God forbid,” he is ousted from the United States. His answer is not shown.
Teresa was charged with multiple counts of fraud and sentenced to 15 months in a federal prison in October 2014. She began serving out her sentence several months later on Jan. 5. While she will not be having her sentence reduced, a judge has ruled that the “RHONJ” star can return home in December where she will serve out the remainder of her time on house arrest. This will allow her to be home with her children for the holidays. After her release Joe will have to begin his own sentence of 41 months at a men’s facility.
“Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Checks In” airs Sunday, Oct. 11, at 8 p.m. EDT on Bravo. Check out a trailer for the show below:
