RHONJ cast member Teresa Giudice is reportedly struggling behind bars while her husband, Joe, continues to drink heavily on the outside.
On March 5, Radar Online claimed that while the RHONJ cast member’s daughter, Gia, recently said she’s “doing great” behind bars and that visiting her is “fun,” an alleged breakdown appears to hint at otherwise.
In an interview with In Touch Weekly, via Radar, a source revealed the following.
“Teresa was in tears when she came out of the visiting room after a recent visit. She was crying out in the open. Some of the inmates gathered around her and told her everything was going to be OK until she finally pulled herself together.”
At the end of last month, as reported by AllAboutTRH on March 2, a celebrity security specialist recently claimed the RHONJ cast member’s husband, Joe, wasn’t being the stand-up dad she was likely hoping for.
In an interview with Daily Candid News, Mark Behar, a man hired to follow Joe, alleged the RHONJ cast member was failing in his parental duties and drinking in excess.
“I am mostly concerned about the girl’s safety and well-being, first and foremost. They are not in any danger but could be better supervised and looked after by their father if he was around more often.”
Behar claimed several of the RHONJ cast member’s kids were being homeschooled, noting that Joe was drinking and smoking cigars at an alarming rate. Behar also revealed Joe has gained weight in recent weeks to the point of looking unhealthy.
Even outside of the home, the RHONJ cast member’s antics were worrisome.
“He’s always at bars and strip clubs, where he knows the owners and has been going for several years — even before this whole legal mess and Teresa being in jail.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the RHONJ cast for Season 7, which isn’t officially renewed, has yet to be determined. However, during an interview with Us Weekly, creator Andy Cohen didn’t sound like he was ready to say goodbye to the series. Still, he was unsure of how to continue with the franchise with Giudice behind bars.
“I can’t imagine not filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey. It’s a big franchise for Bravo, and I think whatever we do, we’re going to do it the right way, so we’re still figuring that out right now.”
Cohen claimed he considered filming the RHONJ cast member behind bars, but wasn’t certain he and the Bravo crew would be allowed to do so.
