Teresa Giudice Confirms That Joe Giudice and Apollo Nida Have Met in Prison

The #RHONJ husband and the #RHOA dad are currently serving time in the same facility.

Back in March, Joe Giudice began his 41-month prison sentence at FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey. But The Real Housewives of New Jersey husband isn't the only familiar face there: Turns out he's serving out his sentence at the same facility as The Real Housewives of Atlanta mom Phaedra Parks' estranged husband, Apollo Nida. So, it begs the question: have they met yet?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

"Yes, they've met and Joe said he was really nice," Teresa Giudice told Amy Phillips on the comedian's Sirius XM radio show this week. "'Cause my husband didn't know who he was cause he doesn't watch the show, so when he got there he met him and he was really nice." 

And while the two Bravo dads may have crossed paths, the RHONJ mama couldn't confirm if they've sparked any kind of friendship beyond that. "They met up, so it was nice," she said. "I don't know if they're in the same area, but they definitely met. So Joe said he was a really cool guy."

Back in March, The Daily Dish spoke to Phaedra, who offered Teresa some advice on how she should handle being separated from Joe during his jail sentence. "My advice is always just to [be] prayerful and to just know that you're not alone," she said. "My husband nor her husband are the first husbands to go to prison, they won't be the last. And you know the most important thing are her children, those beautiful daughters that they have together. And this too shall pass."

Teresa and the RHONJ crew returns this Sunday when Season 7 premieres at 8/7c. Check out an emotional preview of what's to come, below.
