Teresa Giudice is paying tribute to the most important people in her life this Valentine's Day. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star left her estranged husband Joe Giudice out of her holiday message to her family on February 14. However, just hours before Teresa, 47, shared her post, Joe wished his ex a happy Valentine’s Day.
Joe, 47, shared a tribute to Teresa on Instagram and wrote over a photo of her in red font, "Thank you for providing so much for this family. I think we make a great team. I really appreciate you — Happy ❤️ Day.” He then captioned it, "Thank you! For being a great mom and wonderful wife ♥️?."
The Standing Strong author later posted a photo of herself posing with her daughters Gia, 19, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10. "They have my heart today & everyday! Hope everyone enjoys the day! ? #happyvalentinesday2020," Teresa wrote alongside the cute pic.
Teresa and the Italian-born businessman split in December 2019 after 20 years of marriage.
In January, photos surfaced of Joe dancing and grinding on other women while on vacation in Mexico. During the February 5 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Teresa gave her take on the photos.
“I was happy for him. … I wasn’t totally fine with it. I’m not jealous,” the Celebrity Apprentice alum told host Andy Cohen. “I made it OK with our daughters. At first, Milania saw it and Gia, they’re like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ I was just like, ‘Girls, it’s fine. He’s living his life.’ And because I was fine with it, they were fine with it.”
Teresa also opened up during her appearance about raising her four daughters with her ex. “Coparenting is going great,” she said. “He’s a great father. The girls adore him. I want the girls to adore him. We’re doing the best we can.”
However, Teresa's sister-in-law Melissa Gorga did not approve of Joe's vacation photos. Shortly after the pics surfaced, Melissa, 40, revealed on Watch What Happens Live, “Yeah, my husband Joe Gorga and I were actually sitting on the couch together, and Teresa texted us the link to TMZ. I answered back, ‘Who are these h*es?’ And she answered back, ‘LOL.’”
