Don't believe the gossip. Teresa Giudice's lawyer, James J. Leonard, is squelching rumors that The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom is having an affair while Joe Giudice serves time at the Federal Correctional Institution in Fort Dix, New Jersey. He calls the rumors “the embodiment of fake news” in a statement to PEOPLE.
Her attorney further noted that the gossip about the Garden State couple is “manufactured," adding that the stories about the longtime pair are “all sizzle and no steak. Sadly, Teresa is used to this. She and her family have been a target of these types of attacks for years.”
Teresa's rep went on to note that the RHONJ mom and her husband “speak every day” and that “Teresa saw Joe two weeks ago and will be seeing him this weekend for Father’s Day."
Teresa and Joe married in 1999. Together they have four daughters: Gia, Milania, Audriana, and Gabriella.
