As Teresa Giudice weathers trying times, she's named Margaret Josephs as one of The Real Housewives of New Jersey friends who's been the most loyal to her. In October 2018, a judge ruled that Teresa's husband Joe Giudice will be deported back to Italy after he finishes serving his 41-month prison sentence this spring. And after hearing the "upsetting" news, Margaret was quick to offer supportive words for Teresa and her family. But, does the MacBeth Collection founder believe that Joe will change his ways after serving his sentence?
When she appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on January 30, Margaret weighed in. First, the Housewife answered a caller's question about what she thinks it will be like for Teresa when Joe gets out of jail. "We're not sure if Joe's coming directly home, so ... that's going to be the question that's going to be on everybody's mind. So, you know, they're appealing him leaving, so I'm not exactly sure what's going to happen."
The caller also asked if Margaret agrees with Dolores Catania's doubts that Joe will emerge from prison a changed man. As a refresher, Dolores said on RHONJ: "A leopard doesn't always change his spots. [Joe] may be a little soft-spoken and humbled now, but let him get a little comfortable at home, Teresa." So, where does Margaret stand on this? Watch the clip above to hear the "Powerhouse in Pigtails" weigh in on that, and watch the clip below to hear the 'Wives talk more about how Joe has changed since he's been in prison.
