Teresa Giudice is caught up in a scandal which could play out on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8.
According to a new report, Teresa Giudice hasn’t visited her incarcerated husband, Joe Giudice, for the past few months and is allegedly engaging in a new romance with a New Jersey businessman.
On June 14, Us Weekly magazine shared a cover story, in which it asked whether Teresa Giudice was cheating on husband Joe Giudice.
“With her husband in prison, the New Jersey Housewife is rocked by rumors she’s in a hot romance with a hunky family friend. Could divorce be next?” the magazine proclaimed on the cover.
“They’ve been pretty cozy I’m going to say in the last five months,” Teresa Giudice’s nemesis, Kim DePaola, told the magazine.
That said, the Posche Boutique owner went on to reveal that because Joe Giudice has faced tons of cheating scandals in recent years, Teresa Giudice may have a right to go out and find someone else. She even said that Giudice should leave her husband and file for divorce.
Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice have been married for 17 years and share four daughters together, Gia Giudice, Milania Giudice, Gabriella Giudice, and Audriana Giudice.
Teresa Giudice has been starring on The Real Housewives of New Jersey since the series began in 2009 and Kim DePaola has been seen on the series as a guest star since Season 2.
In response to the reports of a possible affair, Teresa Giudice’s attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., Esq told Us Weekly magazine that the reality star “vehemently denies these allegations.”
“They are 1,000 percent false and have been manufactured by attention-seeking lowlifes who have no moral compass. The only man in Teresa’s life is Joe Giudice,” the attorney explained.
Still, DePaola insists that she isn’t making up the shocking rumor and noted that she had gotten the information from two separate people.
Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice faced charges of bank and wire fraud in court in October 2014 and were sentenced to concurrent sentences. Months later, Teresa Giudice began her 15-month prison term and was ultimately granted an early release in December 2015. Then, in March 2016, Joe Giudice began serving a 41-month prison term.
Teresa Giudice and the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, including Melissa Gorga, Siggy Flicker, and Dolores Catania, are expected to return to Bravo TV for Season 8 later this year. A premiere date has not yet been set.
