Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice have been married for 14 bumpy years. The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars have known each other since they were kids. Their families came from the same city in Italy. Despite the legal drama and infidelity they are still together. What’s their secret? Tre and Juicy Joe are in a co-dependent relationship.
Radar Online published a story saying Joe will never leave Teresa. A source told the website “She’s [Teresa] the meal ticket. What would he get? He doesn’t make any money on his own.” It’s true that Joe does not make his own money. He closed his last business, a pizzeria, without having anything else to fall back on. On the show, Joe gave a round about answer as to why he was closing his business. Joe said it was too much of a pain for him to get back and forth to the pizzeria. His driver’s license was suspended and he needed a ride back and forth to work. Joe also said he could not afford to hire another staff member, and if he wasn’t there the restaurant staff was swamped. I think that was Juicy’s excuse to stop working.
Ever since the first season of Real Housewives of New Jersey aired, viewers have wondered why Tre would stay with this scumbag. It’s been suggested Teresa does not believe in divorce. She may feel she has to suck it up. Teresa and Joe come from very traditional Italian families. Divorce is not just frowned upon, it is shameful. Tre may also feel she cannot do better. Joe lets her be her over the top self.
Someone needs to sit Teresa down and talk some sense into her. Joe is abusing her emotionally. Regarding Joe, a source told Radar Online “He should be falling on his sword right now telling them to leave his wife alone. What is he doing? Dragging her through the mud with him. He’s no damn good.” I hope Teresa will come to her senses and leave her pathetic excuse for a husband.
