Joe Giudice: Last Date With Teresa Before Going To Prison

Rumors swirl all around Joe and Teresa Giudice as Joe prepares to go to prison. Recently, Joe and Teresa attended an autism fundraiser hosted by their co-stars Robyn Levy and Christina Flores. According to guests at the fundraiser held at the Midland Brew House in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, Joe Giudice seemed solemn as Teresa partied it up with friends, enjoying herself and posing for photographs. He is reported to have stayed to himself, nested in a VIP booth for most of the evening, according to Radar Online.

Just days before Joe is to start his 41-month sentence, a source at the fundraiser said, "Joe, who is lively, gregarious, seemed totally unlike his regular jovial self. He's out of sorts, quiet and didn't seem mentally present."
"While he was sitting there, it seemed like he was alone with his thoughts. It looked like he was worried and appeared very somber, even though everyone else was having a fabulous time."
Joe Giudice was sentenced to prison for multiple counts of bankruptcy fraud. His wife, Teresa, was also convicted, and she just completed her 11-month sentence at Danbury Federal Correctional Institute, what some call a "country club." However, Teresa has denied the claims that she had an easy time. The judge had mercy on the couple and allowed them to serve their sentences consecutively so they would not have to put their children in foster care.

According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, the prison reeks of urine as well as jet fuel from the nearby Air Force base. Joe will have to live in a barracks-type room with no privacy, no conjugal visits, no booze, and maybe no Teresa, as rumors swirl that she is filing for divorce. Even if she doesn't file for divorce, the ex-con will be traveling to promote her new book, Turning the Tables, and filming a new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

A guest at the fundraiser noticed that Joe Giudice didn't drink all night either, a different fellow than the one that likes to slug down two bottles of wine an evening. Reportedly, champagne flutes remained untouched on their VIP table all night. Teresa says she hopes that prison will be good for husband and get his drinking under control.

Friends have encouraged Teresa Giudice to divorce her cheating husband, who reportedly had a different woman every night while Teresa served her sentence. Makes you wonder why a beautiful, successful woman as Teresa would tolerate being second-fiddle but she firmly denies any cheating rumors.
"Every photo that I see of him with other women, I know who the women are. He could be out with friends that are single and, you know, if they're talking to girls, that doesn't mean that Joe is doing anything just because a girl is sitting at the same table as them. So I feel bad for him in a way. Because the poor guy, you know, he's not doing that."
Recently, Teresa announced that she is pregnant with a "miracle baby" and says that it's a boy. It would be the fifth child for Joe and Teresa. They have four beautiful daughters together. Teresa reportedly says that this baby will save her marriage.

Joe and Teresa Giudice in better times
Joe and Teresa Giudice like living in the limelight. Will she forget about him after he's been in prison for so long?

Although Teresa has promised to visit every week, it's a 90-minute drive to the prison from their posh Montville, New Jersey, home. A bit of a haul for a busy mother and four children, and maybe a newborn. If she does divorce him, he could face deportation to his native Italy.

Joe Giudice will start his prison sentence on March 23 at the Fort Dix Correctional Institution.
