“They discussed their future when Teresa and the girls went to Italy in early November and they agreed that each had to move on. They are doing so amicably and very slowly,” a source told the publication. “Joe has been out on a few dates, Teresa has not. She has been too busy with the girls, with work obligations and taking care of her father. She is happy for Joe."

The insider continued, "They have been very friendly with one another and are very supportive of each other’s happiness. They still love one another, but as Teresa told Andy Cohen on the Watch What Happens Live special, they are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Neither is interested in a long distance relationship.”

However, the sources added “there are no plans for divorce” at this time and they are both  "focused” on raising their four daughters — Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10.

Teresa, 47, and Joe, 49, married in October 1999 and have been living apart for nearly four years. Joe began his 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud in March 2016. The Italian-born businessman was released from prison in 2018 but was held in the custody of ICE at the Clinton County Correctional Center in Pennsylvania.

Joe later requested to go to Italy to await his final deportation appeal and he flew to Europe in October 2019. Joe and Teresa's relationship was riddled with controversy after allegations of infidelity plagued the couple.

In the WWHL special that aired in October, the cookbook author said, "Do I feel like he was faithful? No. You were photographed with women also." Joe shot back, "That’s why it made it okay for you?" Andy pushed for clarification on whether each of them had stayed faithful in their marriage. "Joe, were you faithful to Teresa while she was in jail?" her asked. "I was actually, yeah," Joe responded. "Teresa, have you been faithful to Joe while he was away?" Andy asked, but before she could answer, Joe interjected. "I don’t know, I don’t think so," he admitted.

Teresa was linked to Blake Schreck in June 2019 and the two were spotted hanging out at a rooftop bar in NYC. In the RHONJ season 10 trailer, released last October, Teresa admitted to "hooking up" with someone while Joe was in prison.
