For some reason which I really cannot explain, Joe Giudice decided to awkwardly appear with his wife, Teresa Giudice of Real Housewives of New Jersey on Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen. (SPOILER ALERT: He did it for the check.) Well, he didn’t appear with her physically, at least, since his ass is in Italy after finally getting released from ICE custody while he awaits the decision to deport him from the U.S. for good or not. Joe and Teresa talked about it all: their regrets (they’ve both learned nothing), whether they’ll stay together (there’s no way), and the future (do you care?). And Joe also said that he straight up thinks Teresa was stepping out while he was in jail. Well duh! Like any self-loathing twink who goes to the gym and starts getting attention on Grindr, Teresa didn’t put on all that muscle for nothing!
Both Joe and Teresa did prison time for evading their taxes, and other white collar crimes. Once Joe was released, ICE swooped him up like the hottest new bag, or a Mexican child looking for a better life. After fighting with the government for quite some time over whether or not he would be deported to his native Italy, Joe just pulled the plug himself and flew back over while he waited to hear what the judge would decide. Signs point to: “Arrivederci”.
With all this going on, Joe and Teresa couldn’t pass up the opportunity to continue the set up for Teresa’s Real Housewives of New Jersey storyline, so they had to make an appearance on WWHL.
Andy asked if they regret doing the show and Teresa does not, which doesn’t surprise Joe. via People:
“Teresa always wanted to be on television. She wanted to be a movie star, even when she was a little girl… I wish I never would have done it. I had a great life before. The show just brought a lot of attention to us. Just having a house like that alone just brings a lot of attention. I’ve never had so many damn lawsuits in my life ’til I got on that show.”
Hmmm… Could it have been that you were doing illegal things? Could that have been the root of the lawsuits? Your own actions and not the spotlight put on them? Hmmm…
Joe then tried snapping at Andy, saying they were the best thing to happen him. Andy snapped at Joe saying it’s not like he only got caught because of the Housewives, and also let him know that, “The best thing to happen to me was the birth of my son.“
Teresa also said she still blames Joe for the crimes they committed:
“There’s no one else to blame, so yeah, I still blame him. I got really angry when I lost my mom. Before that I wasn’t really angry, but then after that, it all hit me. and I became more open and more expressive of how I felt. No one should judge me unless they’re walking in my shoes. unless they walk the walk, they don’t understand it.”
Remember when Teresa held that young guy’s hand? Joe heard about it, because InTouch is standard prison reading, and Andy definitely asked about it. Andy asked Joe if he thinks Teresa was faithful and he said:
“I don’t think so. No.”
Teresa also said that she doesn’t think he’s been faithful either.
These two are breaking up. Like is this even a question? If they didn’t have kids who obviously really didn’t want them to break up–they would have divorced long ago. She’s said they’ll break up if he goes to Italy–and guess where he is? That interview is like talking to two people who just finished divorce counselling and are trying to apply their learned coping mechanisms to a triggering situation. And poorly, at that but hey, practice makes perfect!
