Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice‘s husband Joe Giudice writes a touching post following last night’s dramatic episode as he admits he’s not sure where he stands with Teresa today. Plus, Teresa reveals how she really felt about the cringe-worthy phone call she had with her estranged husband.
To say things were tense in last night’s RHONJ episode is an understatement. As fans recall, Teresa and Joe, who was in ICE detention during that period, argued about money over the phone while their daughter Gia Giudice tried on prom dresses for the first time. But after the episode aired, Joe took to Instagram to defend both his marriage and his teenage daughter.
“Hmm!! After all these years I don’t think it’s a secret we fight!!” the 47-year-old wrote on his Instagram account Thursday night. “But, I love being married It’s so great to find one special person like Teresa! In that scene, what you all missed my point?? Outer shell don’t define a person! My princess looks good in anything a dress won’t define her! She is amazing human being! #Blessed father(family forgets there is a time difference fills me in)????”
And in a separate comment under his post, Joe admitted he’s unsure where he stands with Teresa just weeks following the announcement of their separation after 20 years of marriage.
“I don’t know where we stand though she is a good mom and we are ordinary people that fought and will be always be ????,” wrote Joe on January 1st.
As fans can recall, Joe, who was being held in ICE at the time, called Teresa while she and Gia were shopping for a prom dress. But the sweet moment turned from good to bad when Joe started making comments about Teresa spending too much of his money.
“He was like, going through a lot in there, which, I guess it gets to you after a while,” Teresa said on Bravo’s the After Show, seemingly defending Joe’s snide remarks. “So he wasn’t telling us all this and he was going through a lot in there, which, I’m sure, you know, he was.”
In the same tense scene, Teresa and Joe started to argue about the fact that they signed a prenuptial agreement upon getting married. Joe, angered by Teresa bringing it up, says he never even wanted to get married, all while Gia was listening.
“It was just like, I can’t believe he said that in front of Gia,” Teresa added about the phone call during the interview.
And after Teresa admitted she did, in fact, get a prenup with her estranged husband Joe, Dolores Catania, who was sitting beside Teresa during the interview, put her two cents in.
“Good for you Teresa,” the New Jersey housewife stated. “How’s [Joe] gonna like that in the f***in’ prenup now? I hope it says you leave what you came with ‘cuz that means he’s f***ed.”
