Teresa Giudice might be a free woman — but her criminal past is still very much apart of her life on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
In a preview clip below — her husband Joe Giudice — is preparing to surrender to prison soon and the Turning the Tables author opens up to brother — Joe Gorga about her concerns — as seen in an all-new episode of RHONJ, airing on Sunday, October 9.
“How do you feel, like when he goes? What are you worried about?” Gorga, 37, asks his sister.
“I think about the fights and stuff in there. Because I just feel like guys, right away they lose their temper. I told him, you know, just be careful of who you deal with,” Teresa, 44, replies, passing along “camp” tips to her husband before his March 2016 surrender. (Teresa returned home in December after serving an 11-month stint in prison for fraud charges.)
Gorga then tells his sister that he and their father — who Teresa has an extremely close relationship with — were “mad at Joe” during his and Teresa’s trial more than a year earlier. Then he point-blank asks the question on everyone’s mind, “Were you bitter at Joe?”
“I was mad that I got stuck with being involved,” Teresa reveals. Cue the dramatic music. “Yes, I should’ve made sure everything on those papers were correct before signing them, but nothing was done intentionally. You know? We trusted the wrong people.”
While Teresa reminisces about her once close bond with her little brother, Bravo plays an old clip of the siblings dancing at a formal gathering.
