Teresa Giudice Opens Up on What Really Led to Her and Joe Giudice’s Divorce
The RHONJ cast member also revealed where she and her ex-husband stand today.
In a conversation with the rest of the Jersey ladies — Melissa Gorga, Jennifer Aydin, Margaret Josephs, Dolores Catania, Danielle Cabral, Rachel Fuda, and Jackie Goldschneider — as they traversed Ireland, Teresa shared that she “never thought” she would get divorced from Joe Giudice.
What Led to Teresa and Joe’s Split
However, “I was going through legal problems,” Teresa continued. “I go to jail for 11 and a half months — that was devastating for my kids and Joe, so then I come home, [and] three months later, Joe goes to jail. Five months after that, my mother gets sick. When my mother passed, I was done with Joe.”
Expanding upon this in a confessional interview, Teresa said, “When I lost my mom, I had such resentment towards him, but of course I didn’t stop fighting for him ’til the end, for my children.”
Her refusal to give up on their marriage even continued after Joe was deported in 2019. As she put it, “I said to myself, ‘Let me see how I feel when I see him.’”
Nevertheless, “I felt nothing,” Teresa said, looking back at their first reunion. “That’s when I was like, ‘It’s over.’”
Where Teresa and Joe Stand Today
“We’re very good,” Teresa said of her and Joe’s current relationship. “I love Joe.”
Today, the couple has seemingly done so. This past December, Teresa revealed that Louie even asked Joe to join them on vacation. “We’re going away, and my husband asked him to come with us,” Teresa told Us Weekly at the time. “He did it for my children, which I thought was so amazing.”
Joe ultimately wasn’t able to join his ex-wife and daughters because of flight complications, but as Teresa added, “the gesture was so kind.”
“She deserves all the happiness in the world,” Joe added. “I think Lou is a good guy. Anything negative being said out there are just rumors that I don’t engage in. Until I personally discover otherwise, he’s OK in my book.”
