Teresa Giudice’s Parents Gave Her Permission to Divorce Husband Joe

In her new book; Standing Strong, RHONJ star Teresa Giudice has admitted she might divorce her husband Joe.

Now, we can reveal that Teresa’s late mother, Antonia, and her father Giacinto have given her permission to divorce Joe.

“No one in our family has ever gotten divorced,” Teresa writes in her book. “But my parents both said they’d be fine with it if I decide to leave Joe. They both feel like I didn’t deserve what happened to me.”

“They definitely feel like Joe is to blame, but — again — they never said a bad thing about him,” she added.

However, Joe’s mother had a different opinion of what happened. “Joe’s mother called me a b***h and blamed me for the whole thing,” Teresa writes. “Trust me, my parents could have ripped into him because it was all his doing. But they never did, despite the fact that he left me with four kids and a mountain of debt.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Oh My, not right.

    Grown A$$ women still need their parents permission to do anything? Hmmm….perhaps if you would grow up and manage your own life and your own choices – you wouldn’t be in that position in the first place. Stop letting them run your life for you.

    It was not all Joe’s fault, any more than it was all Tre’s fault. Until Tre takes responsibility for her part in all of this she will never be able to get over the anger she feels for Joe. Unfortunately, people like Tre believe they are without fault and don’t have the mental capacity to see differently.

      You are so right! Theresa doesn’t have the mental capacity to think through anything.

    Poor Tre gave it her best, and she’s been plenty loyal to Joe. She probably should have left before he started masterminding their dirty dealings and definitely after calling her a c*nt on nat’l TV.

    Somewhere Caroline Manzo is smiling. She said Teresa would write a book, tell all about how she had to pull herself up by the bootstraps after Joe left, and she’d probably leave him. Good call Caroline.

    teresa will be better off without joe. I’m sure they are both to blame. teresa knew they filed for bankruptcy but yet she HAD TO show off by whipping out cash on national tv to pay for furniture that cost over $100k. that’s what infuriated the judge and started the investigations.
