Joe Giudice Admits He’s Afraid To Go To Jail, Says He’s Not A Criminal And Doesn’t Belong There


In this preview for the next episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Joe Giudice opens up about his ongoing identity theft case, and the fear that he will go to prison. This was filmed before Joe and Teresa were charged with 39 counts of fraud and tax evasion by the federal government. They are both currently facing up to 50 years in federal prison. But Joe is also facing 10 years in prison for allegedly obtaining a drivers license with his brother’s information.

As Joe and Teresa spend alone time in the hot tub, Joe says of the cast trip to Arizona, “I got so much therapy, I don’t think I’ll need therapy for the rest of my life.” The cast went on another “healing” adventure where a horse was able to sense fears in people. Joe Giudice admitted he was afraid of “going away,” and Teresa tells him she was proud of him for opening up about that issue in front of everyone.

“It takes a man to talk about issues. That’s stuff they don’t normally talk about,” Teresa says in her interview. “My husband is a truthful guy and he doesn’t deserve any of this.”

“It’s always there, you know what I mean?” Joe says of his pending case. “You get up thinking about it. When you let that out you get a little relieved. It’s not like I’m a f**king criminal where I’ve been to f**king prison a million f**king times, ya know? I never f**king killed anybody, never did anything to f**king hurt anybody. I don’t belong there and I don’t wanna go there.”
