Is Joe Giudice, of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey, still speaking with his alleged mistress? According to a new report, Giudice and Jamie Jackson stopped speaking after their reported rendezvous last year, but now, they are back in touch.
On March 12, a source revealed the following to Radar Online.
“Joe and Jamie cut it off about a month ago.”
The source claimed Joe Giudice and Jackson first hooked up in November of last year, just two months before Giudice’s wife, Teresa, entered prison to serve a 15-month sentence. Two weeks later, the two reportedly had a second tryst.
Although Joe Giudice was able to keep his alleged affair under wraps for several months, In Touch Weekly eventually exposed the reality star, sharing photos of him and Jackson on the cover of their March 23 issue. In the photos, Joe Giudice is seen smiling in photographs with Jackson, one of which includes her lips just inches from his cheek.
After the report hit the web, Joe Giudice reportedly contacted Jackson.
“They are speaking again now that the story is out.”
As the Inquisitr reported on March 11, Joe Giudice denied the affair in an interview with Us Weekly. Speaking to the magazine, Giudice, along with his alleged mistress, Jackson, insisted there was nothing romantic between them and claimed the photographs of them together may have been photoshopped.
While Joe Giudice and Jackson did admit to meeting twice, they stated that their meetings were strictly professional.
“No, I did not flirt with her. I did not make out with her, nothing happened between us,” Giudice told the magazine. “Everything InTouch is saying that happened between us are lies.”
“I definitely never slept with him,” Jackson added. “Nothing happened with me and Joe, I didn’t know him prior, nothing inappropriate happened at any time. We did not hook up, kiss, or anything more. I saw him at the two business meals and nothing more, it’s all made up bulls—.”
The magazine went on to report that the second meeting between Joe Giudice and Jackson took place at the Resorts Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, just as In Touch Weekly reported. However, the pair claimed the allegations of the two sleeping together were false. Instead, they simply met for a business lunch, which Giudice claimed his wife was aware of.
Joe Giudice is due to turn himself into prison to serve a 41-month sentence when wife Teresa’s 15-month sentence is complete.
