“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is back with all the drama! Teresa Giudice joined her castmates Dolores Cantania and Siggy Flicker at “Extra's” H&M studio in Times Square, where she opened up about the state of her life and marriage.
Teresa admitted, “It's a difficult year for me.” She was recently faced with the death of her mother, saying, “It devastating to me and my daughters, and my father.” Her 74-year-old father moved in with her and her four girls, which has her wearing "a lot of different hats.” She commented, "I'm Mommy, I'm Daddy, I'm the sole provider of the family, I'm taking care of the house, my dad, working… I'm doing it all.”
She also addressed rumors that she and Joe, who is currently serving a 41-month sentence for bankruptcy fraud, are headed for divorce after revealing in her new book that she isn't sure where her marriage is headed. She said, “I'm standing by my man. I'm standing strong.” She went on to say, “But when he comes home, I definitely want to see changes… I'm sure he's gonna better himself.”
Joe is looking better in prison. She gushed, “He looks really amazing. I think he's lost 30, 40 pounds.” Their daughters are taking it one day at a time at home. Teresa said, “The girls are doing okay… They miss their father very much, but they are hanging in there.”
Teresa is also hanging in there with shooting “RHONJ” for the long run, commenting, “I've been in it this long. I'm not gonna walk away from it now.”
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” returns to Bravo tonight.
