RHONJ star Teresa Giudice has always stood by her husband Joe. Now, she is speaking out about how she really feels about their situation in her new book; Standing Strong, and it’s quite surprising what the reality star says.
â€œIâ€™m still not happy with Joe,â€ Teresa writes in the book, available October 5th. â€œActually, thatâ€™s the understatement of the frigginâ€™ century. And Iâ€™m not going to hide it anymore!â€
In the book, Teresa says that Joe still doesn’t take accountability for their fraud scandal, which landed them both in prison. “I’m not going to lie, that really pisses me off,” Teresa writes. “He says that he thought his accountant was filing our taxes? Really? But Joe didn’t check things! That’s what makes me so upset. You have to be on top of your sh*t, and he wasn’t!”
After their sentencing, Teresa focused on her daughters, while Joe started drinking heavily. “He likes to be the strong man. He drowned his sorrows in alcohol from the day we were sentenced to the day he left,” she continued. “All the kids and I saw was his drinking too much, all the time. He was constantly drunk.”
And Tre doesn’t feel sorry for Joe that he’s in prison! “I don’t feel sorry for him, though, not for one second. I did my time and now he has to do his. He was the one who got us in to all this bullsh*t in the first place. He can blame me all he wants, which he does, very often.”
Apparently, Joe thinks it’s Teresa’s fault why the family was targeted by law enforcement. “He says that none of this ever would have happened if we weren’t on the show, which is because of me, but I know that’s not true,” she writes. “It was his fault, because he didn’t do things correctly. And now we’re paying for his bad judgement. We’re all paying for it.”
Giudice admits her marriage suffered from communication issues. “Looking back, I now realize that Joe and I didn’t communicate well with each other in our marriage, all too often not saying things that needed to be said,” she revealed.
Teresa admits that she’s actually “happy” her husband went to prison. “He’s losing tons of weight in prison. He’s not drinking alcohol, and he’s eating a lot less since the food is horrible,” she shared.
And for the first time ever, Teresa admits that divorce is a possibility. “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I mean, do I see Joe and me together in ten years? Do I see us growing old together? I don’t know. Maybe. Maybe not.”
