As Joe gets reacquainted with his family, including mom Filomena and brother Pete, in Italy after being released from ICE custody earlier this month, the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member will be joining his wife Teresa for a TV interview with Andy Cohen, The Real Housewives of New Jersey Special Event: Joe and Teresa Unlocked. The interview will air on October 27.
However, according to sources, this is strictly business for Teresa who allegedly “doesn’t care” to see her husband. Even more, Teresa, who will be visiting Joe in Italy early next month, along with their four daughters, is only flying there so she can get footage and a Bravo paycheck, and also for the sake of her daughters.
First, a report from Radar Online reveals how the interview on Sunday will go down considering Joe and Teresa will be on different continents. According to the outlet, Teresa will tape her interview in New York while Joe will FaceTime in to join her during the taping.
A separate report from the Hollywood Life sheds more light on what is to come for Joe and Teresa during this interview, which will reportedly film today, Oct. 22. The report also talks about what will happen during their reunion next month.
“Though Teresa and Joe won’t be filming their first sit-down in the same room, it’ll be as if Joe will be there in real time with her and Andy. The family is still going to be going [to Italy] together in early November,” a source shares.
“After Teresa films with Andy, as well as the family reuniting in Italy later this year, she’s planning on being done with filming for a while. She wants a break,” a second source close to the Giudice family tells the Hollywood Life.
The source adds, “Teresa honestly doesn’t care about seeing Joe. Everything that she’s doing, she’s doing for show and the kids. Filming the reunion and the sit-down is a job for her. She is the breadwinner right now and sole provider for the family, so she is of course going to take the opportunity to film and get paid to do this.”
And while Joe and Teresa have yet to divorce, the source makes it clear that “they don’t act like a couple when they speak.”
“Everything has changed. Teresa’s entire life has changed,” the insider explained. “She has moved on. The two of them went through complete hell and at this point, life is not what it used to be.”
Moving on indeed, as while Joe awaits a final ruling on his latest deportation appeal, Teresa has been spending time in Florida. Recently, she attended a Halloween bash at the Boca Beach Club in Boca Raton dressed as a character from Game of Thrones.
As for Joe, he is said to be in high spirits in Italy.
“Just today Joe was laughing because American paparazzi are running around the area where [Joe] is living and looking where he is. [Joe and Teresa are] going to see each other and whatever happens happens. Whatever becomes of the trip becomes of the trip,” shared a third source.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 10 premieres on November 6 at 8 p.m. on Bravo TV.
