Teresa and Joe Giudice were once Bravo's most criminal couple. The two did jail time for the fraud they both committed and it resulted in Joe getting deported back to his homeland in Italy.

Both of the parents have clearly moved on with their lives but support each other in their endeavors. While Teresa is filming another season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey , Joe is working on multiple projects in Italy.

Juicy Joe has even crossed over into selling women's sex toys.

E! Online recently caught up with the former reality star who spoke about a multitude of subjects.

In addition to the special massagers, he's getting into the furniture business.

'I just signed a deal to start importing sofas, chairs and what have you from an Italian company here. They're actually handmade sofas, leather sofas. I just partnered up with this guy there, we're going to start shipping couches directly to the customer, to their home so you cut out the middle guy.'

He's also been keeping his new body fit for celebrity boxing and MMA.

As far as his relationship with Teresa -- it is what it is.

'I mean, listen, we talk every day but, we kind of moved on already. What are you going to do? It's been a while. If I was living there, it would be a different story, but I'm not. I'm over here, eight hours away in Italy, full of a bunch of Italian women.'

He definitely believes that he should have been given more leniency when it came to his prison sentence.

'Look, everybody makes mistakes. I did what I had to do. I spent a lot of time in prison. People kill people and get that kind of time, you know what I mean? I just think it was a little too harsh, the sentence. I think they could have been a little lenient and they could have still made a point. You know what I mean?'


He ended his interview by saying that Italy should be one of the richest countries in the world but due to poor management it's not thriving. He isn't counting out a presidential run.
