Nearly three months since she began her 15-month prison sentence in a Danbury, Conn. facility, Teresa Giudice has been doing her best to keep life as normal as possible, according to her husband, Joe.
Speaking to Extra in a video interview airing Wednesday, Joe shares that his wife maintaining a positive attitude—and many of her habits from life before prison.
"She's got a little group she hangs out with and does her thing with every day, and who she goes to the gym with and who she hangs out with, and who does her hair and who does her nails," he says. "They have their little thing going every day."
While Joe says it's been hard for his family, including daughters Gia, Milania, Gabrielle and Audriana, they're coping as best they can.
"When you have four kids you have to stay strong," says Joe. "Her being away definitely makes me appreciate her more, a lot more, and, you know, everything she did."
Joe also adds that the family is in constant touch with Teresa: "They email her all the time...every day, so, they email more than me."
They also make regular in-person visits: "We try to make it up there every weekend and we bring her mom up every weekend."
Last week, Teresa's sister-in-law Melissa Gorga also opened up about how Teresa is coping. "[She's doing] really well, really well. I think it's not easy being away from the children. I think that's the hardest part. There is a limited amount of free time. She's always on the phone with her mother and her children."
