Andy Cohen interviewed Teresa and Joe Giudice of Real Housewives of New Jersey. The married couple has been through a lot together by taking turns going to prison. They were then separated with Joe being in ICE custody.

He was then deported to Italy, and Teresa was reportedly dating. There is a question of what is in the couple’s future. This is what they had to say about waiting to decided whether to divorce or stay married and more.

The interview had the married couple talk about the future of their marriage. The reality star didn’t seem optimistic about their chances of working things out.

“I don’t see it working,” she said referring to them living so far apart. She also revealed that her children understand why they may divorce.

“I think they get it. I don’t think they want to see it happen, obviously, but I think they understand,” she said. “Because the way I explained it to them, how are we going to live apart?”

She continued, “I don’t think he would be faithful. I think he would have someone there and have me here. I just don’t want to live that life. I just don’t.” Joe claimed that wouldn’t be the case.

They talked about waiting to make a decision

Although things seemed kind of bleak when it comes to their marriage, they are waiting to make a decision. Teresa revealed what she wanted to do before choosing to end anything.

“I’m waiting until I get there to see, when I see him, if I feel differently,” the mother explained. Joe then said, “I might see my wife and be like, ‘Oh man, you’re way too old for me now, honey.'”

The reality star didn’t take offense to this. “You’re right! You’re right,” she said laughing. Joe then said, “I’m kidding.” But she continued to talk about waiting.

“See, he says the same thing,” she continued. “When he sees me, he might be like, ‘You know what, I don’t want this either. So we don’t know until we see each other. … I haven’t seen him in almost four years.”

Teresa is reportedly planning a trip to Italy with her kids

A source claimed that Teresa is planning to meet Joe in Italy with their children in early November. That’s probably when the married couple will figure things out.

“Teresa already has a trip to Italy planned. She’ll be taking all her girls,” a source told Us Weekly. “Teresa and all the girls will be visiting sooner rather than later. It’s fast approaching.”

Their daughter, Gia also posted about seeing her father on Instagram. She posted a picture of Joe with his brother, Pete. “So happy [you’re] together right now.. enjoy see you in a few weeks daddy,” she wrote in the caption.

A new season of RHONJ is coming soon. It will follow Teresa through the appeal process of Joe’s deportation. Fans will also get to learn more about her feelings about their marriage leading up to the interview.
