After 6 months, Joe Gorga, Teresa Giudice’s brother, was finally approved to visit her in jail. On the final installment of ‘Teresa Checks In’, we witnessed Joe go from strong family man to emotionally broken brother after his upsetting visit.
Joe Giudice, 43, and his daughters visit Teresa Giudice, 43, in jail whenever they get the chance, but because of their complicated past and visitation producers, Joe and Melissa Gorga have yet to visit — until the October 25 episode of Teresa Checks In. While Melissa has yet to be approved, Joe was able to go see his sister and it “broke” him, he said. He never cries but his visit brought tears to his eyes on camera — we have the full recap.
Teresa called Joe to check in while he was on a trip upstate with the girls and Teresa’s brother and sister-in-law, Joe and Melissa Gorga. After making sure the girls weren’t around, Teresa joked that being in prison has turned her into a virgin again! It’s nice to see Teresa being able to laugh at this unfortunate situation.
After 6-months, Joe, Teresa’s brother, just got approved to visit her in jail, but Teresa isn’t really pushing for Melissa to get approved. “I don’t know what I’m going to feel when I see her,” Joe explained after talking about his complicated past with his sister.
Joe took his four girls to the church his family built and during their visit, Teresa called from jail. Through the phone, she lead an emotional prayer. “I love you,” the girls screamed to their mother afterwards.
It was the day of Joe’s first jail visit and he was very nervous to say the least. “My body is numb right now, I don’t know what to think or what to feel,” he explained. The cameras were obviously not able to film his visit, but Joe was very emotional after seeing his sister for the first time in jail.
“We were brought up as a family who didn’t cry. I never saw my dad cry, I never saw my mother cry, growing up, nothing broke me. This broke me. I was helpless, I couldn’t help her…,” Joe said while choking up.
