Teresa Giudice is opening up about the woman she suspected her estranged husband Joe Giudice cheated on her with years ago. Also, while the Real Housewives of New Jersey star and Danielle Staub are “no longer friends,” is there hope for a future reconciliation between them?
The longtime reality star first opened up about her husband’s possible cheating on the RHONJ: After Show this week after revealing on the latest RHONJ episode that she found a second cell phone of his when their oldest daughter, Gia Giudice, was just three years old.
“He just said it was to talk to this one person because they grew up together,” Teresa explained.
“[She] went out with Frank, too,” Dolores, who was seated beside Teresa, noted.
“Yeah, she gets around,” Teresa replied. “She was training me at the time, too. So it was somebody that he knew.”
Because Teresa was unable to find solid proof of Joe’s infidelity, she opted to stick with him, even though she had some major suspicions.
“I had no proof but like, ‘Why are you talking to her like that, like, why do you have another phone talking to her?'” Teresa wondered. “I never had proof. I asked. I confronted her. I confronted the girl, and she denied it, of course. So I never got proof, so that’s why I got over it.”
“But then now, because of everything that happened, I play it in my head,” Teresa added regarding why she now believes Joe was unfaithful during their marriage.
In a separate interview, Teresa also reacted to Danielle’s recent exit from the show and revealed if there is a possibility that she and Danielle could one day be friends again.
“Good for her if that’s what she chooses to do,” Teresa told People Now of Danielle’s departure from the show on February 12, adding that she “definitely wishes [Danielle] well.”
As for a potential reconciliation, Teresa admitted she wasn’t completely opposed to the idea.
“We did have fun together. She’s funny. She’s a good time to go out with. She is. I’m all about that. I’m all about just having fun and smiling and laughing and that’s what it was about,” she explained. “But you never know what happens in the future. I mean listen, I’m not a follower, I’m a leader. And I’m not just going to not be somebody’s friend because someone else is telling me not to be somebody’s friend.”
Teresa then gave a nod to their season 10 falling out.
“She never did anything to me until… Watch the show. You’ll see what she does to me,” Teresa teased.
Finally, Joe also took some time today to send his estranged wife some happy Valentine’s Day wishes.
“Thank you for providing so well for this family. I think we make a great team. I really appreciate you. Happy [heart emoji] day,” read Joe’s message.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 10 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
