While Teresa hasn’t mended things with Joe and Melissa, she noted, “This season was very, very emotional for me, and when you watch this season, you will see.
“Right now, I need to heal myself,” Teresa stressed. “And I need to be around people that are happy for me, people that bring me up. I am focusing on myself, I am focusing on my family... my mental health.”
She hasn’t always watched the reality show. Giudice explained, “Starting from Season 3 on, I really didn’t watch the show. I was just busy raising my daughters and it was real hard for me to watch again. That is when my family came on, and it was not a good situation.”
Teresa is watching this season, though! She said, “I am definitely watching from now on and I have been watching… I have watched it all and it is sad to watch.”
She admitted, “In hindsight, I should have saw what was being said about me… Maybe it saved a lot of heartaches because maybe things would have been worse… I kept the peace while my parents were alive.”
Teresa is now happily married and watching her daughters grow up. Her eldest daughter Gia is working toward becoming a lawyer. The mom of four pointed out, “Right now she is working for an immigration attorney… That is really a passion for her because her father got deported. She loves to help other families going through this.”
Fans will get to see her wedding to Luis in a special set to air the week after the “RHONJ” season finale. She remarked, “I did it for the fans. I wasn’t sure if I was gonna film my wedding at first… I really did it for the fans. They have been there from the beginning… I got my happy ending.”
