Teresa and Joe Giudice are heading to jail, but that’s not the only problem in their lives. The parents-of-four sat down with Andy Cohen, and Joe confessed that he struggles with alcohol.
Part one of Teresa and Joe Giudice’s Watch What Happens Live interview on Oct. 6 was their first sit-down, since their jail sentencing, and it was emotional. On part two, which aired Oct. 9, the couple came clean about everything — including Joe’s drinking problem.
‘WWHL’: Joe Giudice Confesses He Has A Drinking Problem
“I know that your attorney had said that you have a drinking problem and he asked the court to send you to a rehabilitation facility,” Andy Cohen told Joe on the Oct. 9 special of WWHL, asking Teresa’s husband to divulge on his issue.
“Let me see,” Joe said, looking at Teresa, who was holding his hand. “Before you started this Real Housewives stuff, I think I used to drink only on the weekends. Now I drink every day. Just wine. I don’t drink anything else really.”
Andy asked Joe if he thinks he has a problem, and Joe confessed: “I might have a little problem, yeah. I’m not gonna lie.”
Teresa insisted “it’s gotten worst with his dad passing.” (And might I add, perhaps his legal troubles.)
“I could easily do two, three, four bottles easily — you know, with another person. Sometimes two by myself easily. One bottle is like sucking a bottle of milk. It’s like nothing,” Joe admitted, adding that it helps him sleep.
“It’s either that or I’ve gotta take a pill, and I don’t want to take a pill.”
Aside from this WWHL interview, Joe was drinking wine on a date with Teresa on the most recent episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey.
