Shortly after Teresa Giudice's lawyer shut down any speculation out there regarding the future of The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom's marriage to Joe Giudice, Teresa's pal, Danielle Staub, reiterated the sentiment that this Garden State couple are in it for the long haul.
"Out of respect for her and our friendship, I think that's a question about her own marriage, she should answer," Danielle first noted when she appeared on The Wendy Williams Show this week. But she did add this: "But if you're asking me from where I'm sitting, I hear the way they speak to one another. I'm there for those phone conversations. I've even spoken to him on the phone when he calls her and they're in love. They're in love. He's got a great respect for her, rightfully so."
Earlier this week, Teresa's attorney James Leonard Jr. addressed the gossip in a statement to Page Six: “Teresa is not talking about getting divorced, she is not thinking about getting divorced and she’s not filing for divorce. It’s not happening, not just now, but never. I can’t be any more clear about it.”
Teresa and Joe have been married for nearly two decades and the couple will celebrate their 19th wedding anniversary on October 23. The couple will be apart for the occasion as Joe continues to serve out his prison sentence.
You can find out what's next Teresa when RHONJ returns for Season 9 on Wednesday, November 7 at 9/8c. See what's coming up this season, below.
