“Extra’s” Mario Lopez caught up with Teresa Giudice at Universal Studios Hollywood to talk about her new book “Standing Strong.”
Teresa, who already made the New York Times Best Sellers list with “Turning Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again,” didn’t hold back when talking about her marriage to Joe.
The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star and husband Joe have been the subject of breakup rumors, but Teresa confirmed they will be together when he is released from prison in 2019. “Yes,” she said, explaining that writing the book brought up a lot of feelings about serving prison time herself.
She said, “I really started getting angry and that's when all my feelings came out… I feel like I missed out on those 11 and a half months that I was away that I should've been with my mom. I really open up in the book and writing the book was really therapeutic for me and so I got all my feelings out so now I feel like now I can move on.”
Teresa believes their time apart will make them stronger. “I think it will,” she said, before agreeing “Yes!” when Mario commented that space is healthy sometimes.
Her husband is bettering himself in prison, getting his GED and losing weight. “Yeah he looks really, really good… when you're in there… you could either eat and get heavy and, like, gain a lot of weight, or you can work out… and look really good and get mind strong… that's what he's doing.”
At home, the mother of four is doing her thing, saying the girls are all doing well. “So you know, in the book too, I talk about being a single mom like I never thought I was ever going to be a single mom… but you know, I'm doing it.”
The 45-year-old is also back on “RHONJ,” and said she believes Season 8 is “going to be one of the best ever.”
Giudice explained, “You have five powerful women that you know... do build each other up… and then you know you'll see what happens afterwards… we were like 'Sex and the City,' like supporting each other and then, you know, then we'll get into the drama which you'll see... but I really love this season. I think everyone's going to love it.”
“RHONJ” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
