Joe Giudice admits, visiting wife Teresa Giudice in prison isn’t the hard part… it’s saying goodbye at the end!
Joe revealed how he’s keeping it together. “When you have four kids, you have to stay strong,” he admitted of the bond he shares with daughters Gia, 14, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 5. “[Teresa] being away definitely makes me appreciate her way more, a lot more, and you know everything she did.”
And they’re in constant contact with email and visits. “[The kids] email her all the time…every day, so, they email more than me. We try to make it up there every weekend and we bring her mom up every weekend.”
Joe explains, there’s a lot of waiting around while Teresa is in another room getting hair and makeup done for the visit. “She made us wait an hour to make her hair, to do her hair. That was a little annoying.”
But Teresa is getting along fine in prison. “She’s got a little group she hangs out with and does her thing with every day,” says Joe, “and who she goes to the gym with and who she hangs out with, and who does her hair and who does her nails… they have their little thing going every day.”
Joe also revealed of whether or not Teresa would return to the Real Housewives of NJ early 2016 when she’s released, “The numbers [pay] would have to be very big in order to go back so um, we’ll see… as of right now there’s nothing”.
Teresa is on this week’s cover of Us Weekly. The magazine notes, the photo on this week’s cover is a “recent family photo taken in the visitation room at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn.”
Joe tells Us about the visit. When it’s time to say goodbye, he admits, “I cry more than the girls… I pretty much cry every time I leave. Like a little baby.”
