“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is a show that is often about fighting that occurs between some of the ladies — so when there is a major story that plays out when it comes to a marriage, it draws huge headlines. Those headlines are only amplified when it comes to Teresa and Joe Giudice — a couple who has arguably been through more already than any other pair on their show.
So how does Teresa respond to something that is being called one of the sleaziest things we’ve seen done on the show? As the video below (which you have probably already seen) from next week’s episode shows, Joe refers to his wife by some incredibly awful names while on the phone with a mystery woman — and he apparently also thought that hid audio was not getting picked up.
In a new interview with In Touch about this very ordeal, Teresa did something that she has not done in the midst of some of Joe’s problems with court cases and even bankruptcy — she refused to actually stand up and defend him over what he did:
“I felt like I’d been kicked in the stomach. I was humiliated … I can’t defend him on this. I’m hurt by him and disappointed by him.”
Teresa claims that the two sat down and talked about this after the footage was originally shown to her, and here are no current plans for the couple to split over this. However, the reality star did promise that she would leave him if these actions were to continue, and he was to continue humiliating her publicly and exhibiting some shady behavior.
Even though Joe has apologized for what he said and the couple has moved on, it does appear here that a good bit of damage has been done in their relationship.
