In her first televised interview since visiting Joe Giudice in Italy, ‘RHONJ’ star, Teresa Giudice revealed what the future holds as her marriage remains in limbo. The mother of 4 was candid about infidelity, divorce and family with ‘GMA’ on November 14.
Even if Teresa Giudice wants to remain married to her husband, Joe Giudice she isn’t sure if it’s possible. Why? The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 47, admitted to Good Morning America that if her husband, 47, remains in his native, Italy for good, it’s likely that their marriage won’t be “feasible” enough to successfully carry on.
Teresa sat down with Good Morning America for an interview that aired Thursday morning, November 14, where she revealed that the couple is taking things “day by day” as Joe awaits the final decision in his deportation appeal case. The mother of four admitted that her recent trip to Italy to visit Joe was solely about him reuniting with their daughters — Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10 — and not so much about addressing the future of their relationship.
“I was so overjoyed seeing my daughters seeing how happy they were seeing their dad. This trip was all about focusing on our daughters. It really wasn’t about us,” Teresa said about the pair’s daughters reconnecting with their father.
When asked if she still “feels anything” for Joe, Teresa said she would “always going to have a place in [her] heart” for him. However, she’s unsure what the future holds. “I’m always going to love him,” she added, to which the interviewer asked, “Even together or separate?” Teresa confirmed, “Always, yes.” She continued, “Imagine he lived in Italy and I lived here … I don’t know if that’s a feasible relationship.”

“Do you think you could find happiness and love again with Joe,” Teresa was asked, to which she played coy. “To be determined,” she said, adding, “We’re taking it day by day.”
Teresa was later asked if she’s been faithful to Joe throughout their marriage, as well as her incarceration, to which she confirmed with a confident, “Yes.” But, her answer wasn’t the same when it came down to her thoughts about rumors that Joe had cheated.
“I never caught him, so it was here say,” Teresa admitted. “I mean, he was photographed with people. You know, he said nothing happened so, you know, I believed him. Obviously, ’cause we still stayed together. But I guess that’s in the past now and I’m just like, whatever.”
Teresa went on to admit that she doesn’t plan to file for divorce. When asked the latter, she began to say, “Not anytime,” before she cut herself off and answered, “No.”
Despite everything Teresa and her family have been through, the Bravo star said she’s learned a lot about herself through this unexpected time. “I’ve learned — I have powers I never knew I had. I’m unbreakable,” she said.
Joe and Teresa were convicted of mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud, and subsequently served separate consecutive sentences. She served a little over 11 months in prison and was released on December 23, 2015. Soon after, Joe began his 41-month prison sentence in March 2016 and was released into Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody in March because he never obtained American citizenship.
In October 2018, a judge ruled to deport Joe. He currently resides in Italy as he continues to appeal his deportation case. He began the appeal process from prison and continued to do so while in ICE custody.
