Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has been out of prison for about two months, and she’s enjoying her freedom. But she knows that her husband, Joe Giudice, will be turning himself in to serve over three years for fraud. While Teresa is preparing to be a single mother for several years, one can imagine Joe hates the fact that he has to go away and serve his time away from his family.
According to a new Bravo report, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is now revealing that Joe will be staying in the same prison as Apollo Nida, but there might not be a chance that the two will get along. Of course, Apollo was transferred from Kentucky to New Jersey, so he may be excited to see a fellow Real Housewives star behind bars. As it turns out, he and Apollo will meet for the very first time at the FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey.
“I don’t even know who he is to be honest with you,” Joe recently told Entertainment Tonight, according to Bravo.
Of course, Teresa has been a huge part of the Real Housewives franchise, but Joe never actually met Apollo. He didn’t go to many Real Housewives events, and it sounds like he doesn’t really have an interest in the reality television world. And Teresa Giudice admits that they never actually met one another. Only she has met Phaedra Parks.
“Yeah, they never spoke. They never met,” Teresa added to that, revealing, “When I go to Bravo events… I met Phaedra at a commercial shoot once, but Joe never comes to those.”
The cameras didn’t catch Teresa Giudice turning herself in last year and it sounds like they want to do something similar with her husband. Teresa left her home in the middle of the night to turn herself in and the cameras didn’t catch her leave her home or enter the prison. And Giudice may do the same thing, but don’t expect the Real Housewives of New Jersey cameras to capture the surrender.
“We haven’t crossed that bridge yet,” Teresa said, adding, “Listen, I know we’re on this reality show, but you know, we’re also human beings. And we want to keep some things private, just between us and our four daughters. So, we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.”
Of course, Joe’s three-year sentence is just one major issue. Once he is released, the judge has to decide if he can stay in the country. During the trial, the idea of deportation did surface, and the judge will have to decide if he can stay in the country once he’s released. It’s something that’s hanging over the family’s head, but Teresa Giudice isn’t too worried about that outcome right now. In fact, she doesn’t even want to deal with this right now.
“Anything can happen, you know? There is nothing in life that is certain,” Joe revealed to Entertainment Tonight, adding, “We will deal with that when I get out.”
“I’m going to miss sleeping with him at night and cuddling with him,” said Teresa, jokingly adding, “I’m going to miss the passion, and I can’t say any more than that.”
Of course, the deportation would happen in three to four years, so it makes sense that Giudice doesn’t want to deal with this issue right now. She just wants to celebrate their marriage and remember the good times for when Joe is taken into custody. He will be turning himself in on March 23 to serve 41 months behind bars.
What do you think of Teresa Giudice not worrying about the deportation? Do you think Joe and Apollo will become friends in prison?
