If anyone knows how prison can impact a marriage, it's Victoria Gotti. The reality star and mother of three divorced her husband in 2003 while he served a nine year sentence. So it's no surprise Wendy Williams asked Teresa Guidice's pal her prediction for the Real Housewives of New Jersey star's marriage when she stopped by her talk show on Monday.
"Your marriage didn't survive prison," said Wendy. "Do you think that Teresa and Joe will survive prison?"
"I'm gonna say yes," replied Victoria who competed against Teresa on Celebrity Apprentice. When Wendy suggested Victoria was simply being a good friend by taking that position, Victoria elaborated.
"I watch my friends...I'm a good observer," said Victoria who maintained that her faith in Teresa and Joe's union is based on what she's witnessed first hand. "I'm a people watcher and Teresa adores Joe. I watch them at dinner...Teresa is the wife who is still madly in love with her husband."
Victoria apologized to Wendy for not having anything juicier to share, joking, "I wish I could come with some gossip."
Speaking of gossip, Wendy also asked the Growing Up Gotti star about her part in stirring up a little drama on RHONJ. Fans will recall, Victoria told Teresa and Amber Marchese over lunch that years ago the husband of their castmate Teresa Aprea had confessed to her that he had an affair with his mother-in-law.
"This is something he said some time back," said Gotti of the claim Teresa Aprea's husband Rino denied. "I'm not saying it happened, I could care less," said Victoria who maintained she simply repeated what Rino told her.
