In a special pre-taped episode of Watch What Happens Live this week, Andy Cohen sits down with Teresa and Joe Giudice after their prison sentencing and asks them the tough questions. As someone who has known and worked with them for years, Andy is in a unique position to know how this devastating news—15 months in prison for Teresa, and 41 months for Joe—might affect them as a couple.
"They're a pretty solid unit," Andy told Extra when asked if he thought the couple would split up after prison. "That's how they present themselves and that's how they presented themselves in that interview."
In part one of the special, Teresa and Joe both admitted that Joe used his wife's name to apply for loans because her credit was better. "I do need to read things before I sign them," Teresa responded. "I do need to understand things before I sign them. I'm a trustworthy person. Sometimes I take what other people say and I believe them and I trust them. I can't do that anymore."
In part two of the sit-down, airing on Thursday night, Andy revealed that he asked Teresa a very tough question. "I asked her on Thursday night if she blames Joe for her sentence and term. What she says is pretty interesting," he teased. Thursday night will also see the couple addressing some other serious allegations. "We also talk about whether [Joe] has a problem with alcohol and some other allegations that they made in court about the show," Andy said.
This past weekend, the Real Housewives of New Jersey also got together to film their reunion show, which both Teresa and Joe were present for. Andy called the experience "dramatic, emotional, intense."
"Obviously there was an undercurrent of something incredibly serious that had just happened with Teresa, as we all know, but we all got through it," he said.
