Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice seemingly snubbed husband Joe Giudice on their 20th wedding anniversary on Wednesday, October 23. The reality star posted a selfie and a few Instagram Stories of herself grabbing dinner with friends and working out, but she made made no mention of her milestone with Joe on social media.
Joe, 47, served three years for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud and was released from prison in March 2019. He was transferred into ICE custody since an immigration court ruled to deport him in October 2018. His request to return to his New Jersey home with his wife and daughters Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 10, was denied.
His subsequent request to return to his native Italy while he fights the deportation ruling was granted, and he flew overseas to his new home on October 11. A final ruling on his deportation is expected in November 2019.
Joe broke his silence for the first time since his move to Italy in an interview with Bravo's The Daily Dish on October 21. "You just gotta look forward and never look back. I’ve learned a valuable lesson from all this and I know my family is the most important thing to me, but it’s better that I’m out here than in there," he said in a video message. "Life, it’s always better to look through the windshield and not through the rear view mirror. It’s a much bigger picture when you’re looking through the windshield. But at the end of the day, people make mistakes. Nobody’s perfect," he added.
The status of Teresa and Joe's marriage remains unclear. In a teaser for the upcoming season 10 premiere of RHONJ, Teresa admitted that she had hooked up with another guy while Joe was away in prison. The cookbook author was linked to Blake Schreck, 26, in June. She also revealed that she was unsure she still had feelings for her spouse when asked about their relationship by costar Jennifer Aydin. "I don't know," she replied. "I haven’t been happy in so long,” she later confessed to her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. “And I just want to be happy again.”
Teresa and Joe are set to give their first joint interview since his release from prison to Andy Cohen on Sunday, October 27.
"Joe and I will be sitting down with @Andy to discuss everything that has been happening with us and our family the past few months,” she tweeted. “Tune in to a special The Real Housewives of New Jersey Special Event: Joe and Teresa Unlocked.’”
