Teresa Giudice opens up about her friendship with Blake Schreck

Some of Bravo’s top reality stars gathered at BravoCon in New York City last weekend to dish on their respective feuds, drama, and friendships.

When it came to the RHONJ’s panel at the event, Teresa talked about her controversial relationship with Blake. As fans will recall, the two were spotted hanging out on several occasions while Teresa’s husband, Joe, was in jail (and awaiting deportation).

During one of their outings, Teresa and Blake were photographed holding hands, sparking speculation that a forbidden romance was in the works while poor Joe was behind bars.

And during the panel at BravoCon, Teresa Giudice revealed that she is still friends with Blake, who is 21 years younger than her. The revelation prompted a few outcries from the audience, but Teresa did not back down.

“Yes, I am,” she shared.

Did the ‘RHONJ’ star cheat on her husband?

Reports of a romance between Teresa and Blake first surfaced on New Year’s Eve after an eyewitness claimed to have seen them flirting at a club in Miami called Big Pink. The two were later spotted together on a beach in Florida and even enjoyed a night out in New York City.

The multiple outings led to serious speculation that Teresa was cheating on Joe, who was still serving out his 41-month sentence in prison.

In light of the rumors, Teresa Giudice sat down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live last month and discussed her relationship with Blake. The RHONJ star assured viewers that she is just friends with Blake and that she has never been unfaithful to Joe.

For his part, an inside source claims that Joe believes Teresa did cheat on him when he was behind bars, though she continues to tell him otherwise.

Inside Teresa Giudice’s trip to Italy

Despite all of the cheating rumors, Teresa is doing her best to support her husband, who was deported to his home country of Italy earlier this year.

In her interview with the Bravo host, Teresa revealed that she recently flew to Italy to visit Joe and brought their children along with her. According to Us Magazine, the reality star admitted that the trip was an emotional affair and that she is happy that Joe is no longer in prison.

“It was an amazing, amazing trip,” Teresa Giudice stated. “I’m so happy Joe’s free, it was very emotional. I was overwhelmed with joy. I was happy to see my daughters finally united with their dad.”

While it sounds like Teresa and Joe are still going strong, their marriage has been the subject of intense speculation over the past year.

Given her close friendship with Blake and Joe’s deportation, there has been a lot of talk that Teresa is going to divorce Joe in the near future. Teresa has yet to announce a divorce, but living half-way around the world from Joe is likely going to take a toll on their marriage.

Inside Teresa and Joe’s long-distance marriage

With Joe no longer allowed in the United States, Teresa Giudice has worked hard to keep open the lines of communication, especially when it comes to their four daughters: Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana.

An inside source claims that the two have been talking non-stop since she returned home from Italy, which is a promising sign for their marriage. The insider even said that they have been getting a little flirty on the phone, but mostly because of all the time they spend apart.

When it comes to their daughters, Teresa recently revealed that their second youngest daughter, Milania, has taken Joe’s absence the hardest. Luckily, the 14-year-old has come to terms with her father’s deportation and is starting to move forward.

That said, all four of Teresa’s girls miss their father greatly and loved visiting him in Italy. Hopefully, there are many more trips ahead of them in the future.
