Plus, The Real Housewives of New Jersey father shares some updates about his new life in Italy.
Joe Giudice has experienced lots of change since last fall.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey dad started a new life in Italy after his October 2019 release from ICE custody, and has since been staying busy exercising and working on a variety of business ventures. Joe now has his own YouTube show, This Old Villa, which follows the journey through a construction project on a family home in Italy He's also been working with luxury sex toy company Zalo USA. In an upcoming episode of The Daily Dish podcast, Joe opened up about his life in Italy, relationship with his four daughters, and the new woman in his life.
At the moment, Joe is busy tying up the loose ends of the construction project featured in This Old Villa. "It's in a very desirable area in our town in Italy, in Sala Consilina," he explained. "I mean, that house would have been done a long time ago. But with the COVID and the paperwork and everything, it's taken a little longer. But it'll get done. No big deal."
In October, Joe shared an update on his dating life, noting that he has been "seeing a lawyer. Although the two still seem to be in contact, Joe maintains that he’s “not rushing to get into no serious relationship,” at the moment, and instead is focused on daughters Gia, Gabriella, Milania and Audriana. “My priority are my kids. I got four beautiful girls and that’s my main priority."
While the Giudice girls are normally busy running around New Jersey, Gia and Milania recently flew over to Italy to spend some quality time with their father. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has caused many of the country’s businesses and attractions to close down, but Joe is hoping to create an itinerary full of fun for the girls.
“I want to take ‘em to Pompeii. I want to take ‘em to as many places as I could, that they allow,” he said. “So we’ll take it from there.”
As much as the family seems to cherish their Italian adventures, Joe also mentioned that he’s working on a plan to spend some of his time in a location that would make it more convenient for his family to be able to visit: the Bahamas.
“It’s a lot closer for my family to come visit, and it only makes sense. Here is great, you know what I mean. It’s a great country and all. But, I want to be closer to the family, and start a little business over there. I got some things going over here and some things over there.”
In addition to starting a business, Joe is someday set to participate in a Celebrity Boxing match in the Bahamas against Jennifer Lopez's first husband, Ojani Noa.
"I've been fighting my whole life, so I mean, why not?" said Joe, explaining that the match will include three minute and a half rounds. "What's the worst that could happen? You get a little bruise on your eye?"
In the meantime, you can follow Joe's journey as he remodels a home in Italy on his 25 episode YouTube show, This Old Villa. Be sure to also check out the full interview with Joe in the November 19 episode of The Daily Dish podcast.
