The tables have officially turned. For the first time, Teresa Giudice paid a special visit to her husband Joe, who just recently began his time behind bars in prison. As you can imagine, the reunion was emotional. Who’s got tissues?
‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star Teresa, 43 reunited with Joe Giudice, 43, for the first time since he began his jail sentence on April 15. While it may have been surreal to be on the other side of bars during her visit, Teresa was reportedly overwhelmed with joy upon seeing her hubby at the very start of his 41-month prison time.
Teresa was “so happy to see him,” according to E! News, as she made her way to Fort Dix, New Jersey to see her husband, just a month after he started his sentence. It’s been difficult for Teresa, Joe, and their family, but this reunion may have been just what the couple needed to continue powering through this long time away. Though the reality star has kept quiet about her visit on social media, sources say it was a lot to handle for both of them. “It was a very emotional visit,” a source told E!.
The Giudices’ pled guilty to bankruptcy fraud in 2014 and agreed to serve out their sentence separately. After Teresa completed her sentence in December 2015, Joe surrendered himself to the prison in March 2016, to begin his 41-month sentence. While he’s away, Teresa will continue to care for their four daughters – Gia, 14, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 10, and Audriana Giudice, 6.
Just after Joe left, Teresa released a video statement via Bravo’s Daily Dish, updating fans and thanking them for their continued support.”Joe’s doing as well as expected. Of course we spoke to him. And I just want to say thank you again from the bottom of my heart for being there, and for all your beautiful tweets. Love, love, love you from my family to yours,” The Housewife said.
It’s good to see nothing can break this strong family! This is probably the first of many reunions for the couple, who assured fans that their relationship is stronger than ever, according to E!. In the meantime, Teresa is keeping herself busy with a number of projects. She previously revealed working on a party planning service and a beauty brand, but probably her biggest task is being a mom to her four daughters.
