When Andy Cohen sat down with Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice on the recent The Real Housewives of New Jersey Special Event: Joe and Teresa Unlocked special, one of the topics was the future of the Giudices' marriage. With Joe out of ICE custody and waiting on a decision to be made in his ongoing deportation case appeal in Italy, Joe said during the special: "If we stay together, we stay together, if we don't, we don't. You know, it's a conversation that we'll see."
Joe added, "Listen, as long as she's happy, that's all that really matters. I'm not gonna tell her what to do. If she doesn't feel like she doesn't want to be with me anymore, then that's the thing to do."
Previously during the RHONJ Season 9 reunion, Teresa did note that she would not follow her husband to Italy if he should ultimately get deported there. Teresa said in the special that she was eager to see what it would be like to see him again when she and her daughters reunite with him in Italy, which they did on Thursday (November 7).
"We're both two different people now. I don't know, I'm not the same Teresa I was, and I know he's not the same Joe," she said ahead of the family reunion. "Like I told him, no matter what, I always want us to respect each other and I do love him as a person. I'll start crying because I do, I care about him, I love him, I don't know how I'll feel when I see him. That's why I'm so nervous when I see him in person."
"What shocked me the most was their honesty about their lack of attraction for each other and the seeming deadness of their relationship," he said on November 6. "You know, I never count their love out. They were so into each other for so long. She was standing by him with every rumor she heard. But I do have to say she just seemed over it. She was talking about it in the past tense. She seemed to have a very realistic attitude about how this isn't going to work."
