Joe Gorga dropped a bombshell on Teresa Giudice in the February 5 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

As the siblings discussed Teresa's communication with her husband, Joe Giudice, during his time in ICE custody, Joe Gorga asked his sister, "If he's saying all these negative things to you, why don't you just move on in your life?"

He then admitted that he always thought there were issues in Teresa and Joe Giudice's relationship. "I never really thought you guys had a good relationship," he said. "I just didn't see him treating you the way you should have been treated."

Joe Gorga explained how he thought Joe Giudice could have been a better husband to Teresa during an interview in the episode. "Joe is always gonna be arrogant, he's rough, he's tough," he shared. "He doesn't know how to open up and be a man. You know what a man is? When he can look at you and say, 'I love you. You're amazing. You're beautiful.' That's a f--king man."

Teresa shared her reaction to her brother's comments and her husband's treatment of her during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on February 5. "Listen, he did treat me good because otherwise I wouldn't have stayed married to him all those years," she said. "I have to say the nastiest he ever was was on the show. I don't know, he had this whole macho attitude when he was being filmed, which I hated."

Teresa and Joe have reportedly been separated since they reunited in Italy in November. However, “there are no plans for divorce," a source told PEOPLE in December, and the two "are focused" on their four daughters (Gia, 19, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, Audriana, 10) right now.

Teresa opens up more about visiting Joe during his time in ICE custody in The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 After Show, which you can view, above.
