As he settles into his life in Italy, Joe Giudice continues to keep his mind on his family back in New Jersey. Amid his reported split from Teresa Giudice, The Real Housewives of New Jersey husband posted a touching tribute to his family, promising that they “will always stay strong.”
In a moving Instagram video posted on January 11, Joe shared a series of family photos from over the years, starting with several throwback pictures of him and Teresa as a young couple and leading up to more recent images of the entire clan’s reunion in Italy last November.
Alongside the sweet photo collage, Joe included a caption that seemed to directly address Teresa, reading, “Don’t fall in! Whatever happens in our future, remember we were friends to begin with. We will always stay strong. It’s not distance that breaks a couple, it’s actions!”
Joe went on to reveal that he’s working on “learning more from today’s generation,” also acknowledging some of his own mistakes in the past. “I see the ego thing got in my way like a trap,” he wrote, later adding, “Today, simplicity, girls and family first, and actions speak louder than a car or big things.” He concluded the post with the hashtag, #familyiseverything.
Joe also made sure to defend Teresa in the comments section of the post. He clapped back against one of her critics, writing, “Teresa has been a good mother to my babies, that’s all [the] help I need.”
Reports of Teresa and Joe’s separation following 20 years of marriage began circulating in December. After being released to Italy in October following his release from ICE custody, Joe remains abroad, waiting for a final decision in his ongoing deportation case.
