Joe Giudice is speaking out. In a recent video for Bravo’s Daily Dish, the husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Giudice says that he’s decided to “look through the windshield and not through the rearview mirror” as he embarks on a new life in Italy.
But what does that mean for his relationship with Teresa? The reality TV star has been accused of cheating on Joe while he was locked up, first for bankruptcy fraud and later in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody. Fans might get some answers when Andy Cohen chats with the couple in the October 27 episode of Watch What Happens Live.
Andy Cohen says his interview with Joe and Teresa is ‘next level’
Cohen teased the interview with the Giudices on the October 22 episode of WWHL, saying that it is definitely a must-watch.
“You do not want to miss our interview with Teresa and Joe Giudice, which airs Sunday night,” Cohen said. “I did the interview today and it was next-level, you guys. Really good.”
“Joe and I will be sitting down with @Andy to discuss everything that has been happening with us and our family the past few months,” Teresa confirmed in a tweet.
Joe called in via video from Italy for the interview, according to Us Weekly.
‘People made mistakes,’ Joe says
Joe returned to his native Italy on October 11, where he’s living with his extended family near Salerno. Since his release from prison and ICE custody, he’s been reflecting on his situation, he said in the Daily Dish video.
“[A]t the end of the day, people make mistakes. Nobody’s perfect,” he said. “I’ve learned a valuable lesson from all this, and I know my family is the most important thing to me, but it’s better that I’m out here than in there.”
“I just want to let you know that I love you, and I’m always here for you. You know that,” the 47-year-old father of four added.
Teresa and the girls are planning a trip to Italy
Despite rumors that her marriage to Joe is on the rocks — and Teresa saying earlier this year that they would “go our separate ways” if he was deported — she is planning a trip to Italy in the near future, along with her and Joe’s children, Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10.
“Teresa and all the girls will be visiting sooner rather than later. It’s fast approaching,” a source told Us Weekly.
Gia Giudice confirmed the trip in an October 13 Instagram post, writing, “See you in a few weeks daddy.”
Joe Giudice, who was brought to the U.S. as baby but never obtained U.S. citizenship, has been fighting deportation for months. But in September, he asked to be released from ICE custody and allowed to return to Italy so he could begin earning money to support his family. He is still waiting for a final ruling on his immigration appeal and hopes to eventually return to the United States.
