Before dishing on last month’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion taping, Teresa explained how she and Joe are navigating through their separation, shared her thoughts on her ex’s future relationships, and weighed in on the recent photos of Joe partying with other women in Mexico.
“We’re doing good,” Teresa said of herself and her daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, via E! News‘s Pop of the Morning on Wednesday. “Joe and I, our first priority is our daughters, and that’s it. We’re just going to be the best parents we can to them and support each other, no matter what.”
“I even told Joe, ‘You know, when you find your significant other, I’ll even come and hang out with you to make it good for my girls,'” she continued. “I just want my girls to be happy. Obviously, if I’m fine with it, they’ll be fine with it… you know, like when that whole TMZ thing came out with Joe.”
Last month, Joe was spotted spending time with numerous women in Mexico, one of whom was seen dancing for him at the resort where he was vacationing with several male family members.
“I made it good for my daughters… [Joe] was so upset because he didn’t want them to see that and I made it good for them and they were fine with it,” Teresa confirmed of the way in which her children reacted to the scandalous photos. “If I was upset about it, they were going to be upset about it. And they kind of were but I’m like, ‘It’s okay. That’s what he’s supposed to be doing,’ I’m like, ‘We’re not together. I want him to be happy.'”
“He was having a good time and that’s what he’s supposed to be doing,” she added.
“I don’t remember him giving us a compliment at the reunion in the longest time… and he said it was a great reunion,” Teresa shared, adding that she was also “really happy” about how things went between her and her co-stars.
“It was really honest. We were really real,” she explained.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 10 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
