Teresa Giudice just returned from a trip to see husband Joe Giudice in Italy earlier this month, along with her four daughters, Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 10. It was the first time The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple had been together since Joe was released from custody in October.
But all good things must come to an end, and Teresa and her kids had to return home to the United States while Joe remains in Italy awaiting a final decision in his ongoing deportation case. Unfortunately, Teresa may not be able to be in the same room with Joe again for quite some time.
One fan asked Teresa when she will next see Joe during the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen After Show on Wednesday night (clip above). "Maybe this summer. Probably this summer," Teresa replied to the caller.
That seemed like a long way away to Andy Cohen. "Maybe this summer? That's in like eight, nine months," he said to Teresa.
Teresa explained that her daughters had hoped to meet Joe in the Bahamas over Thanksgiving, but he's supposed to be getting his Italian passport around that time, so they didn't know if they'd be able to. "So they're definitely going for Christmas. I have to work around that time, so that's why I can't go," Teresa said. "So summer. That'll be my next break because the girls have school."
Teresa previously opened up to Good Morning America about her reunion with Joe in Italy last week. "We just were there to enjoy each other's time, lots of laughs, lots of tears, reacquainting with each other. It was pretty amazing. We had the best time ever. It was so good," she said. "My daughters are at an age now, Joe and I were just so amazed how mature and beautiful and smart they really are. They blow us away."
Teresa told GMA that she isn't sure she if she would ever return to Italy by herself to have some alone time with Joe. "I don't know about that," she said. "We'll see. I don't know."
But of course, Joe and his daughters were devastated to have to say goodbye, Teresa shared during the RHONJ: The Garden State Dishes the Dirt panel at BravoCon on November 16. "I thought that the girls would be fine when we came back from Italy, but they're really missing Joe still," she said. "It's like Milania told me the other day, she's like, 'I miss Daddy so much.' It breaks my heart. It's hard."
As far as whether or not Teresa and Joe got intimate in Italy, we'll just have to wait and see. "You're gonna have to tune in," Teresa teased of the reunion, which was filmed for this season of RHONJ. "You will see if the boom boom happened."
