On Friday, Teresa Giudice dropped by Fort Dix to visit her husband Joe, who is serving a 41-month sentence for fraud charges.
A source told People about the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star’s first visit, "She was so happy to see him. It was a very emotional visit.”
The visit comes just a week after Joe’s lawyer, James J. Leonard Jr., went to see him. James said in a statement, "I visited with Joe on Friday and he is doing as well as can be expected. I would say that he is adjusting very well. I know that he misses Teresa and their four daughters immensely, but Joe will get through this, just like Teresa did."
He added, "Teresa will be visiting with the girls as quickly as she is approved by the prison, which should be within the next week.”
Teresa was unable to visit Joe earlier due to conditions of her supervised release in February. While Joe is in prison, Teresa is in "full-on mom mode," an insider shared with Us Weekly, adding, "It’s very lonely in the house without Joe there, but since Teresa has just finished filming, she’s back in her element and able to take the girls to all their activities."
