Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice has been a free man for less than a week. But, a new report claims that the 47-year-old is ready to file for divorce from his wife Teresa Giudice because she was allegedly unfaithful while he was locked up.
According to Radar Online, the numerous pictures of Teresa with 26-year-old Blake Schreck that surfaced earlier this year – plus her confession at the Season 9 reunion that she doesn’t do long-distance relationships – sparked Juicy Joe’s desire to end his 20-year marriage.
“He is so mad at Teresa for cheating and being unfaithful while he was locked up and left to rot in prison,” claims an insider. “Joe is really mad at her for being so awful.”
Rumors have swirled for months that Teresa was hooking up with her alleged boy toy while Joe was serving his 41-month prison sentence. Her attorney insisted that Teresa and Schreck were just friends – and there was “no cheating, no divorce, no scandal, and no story.” But, it doesn’t look like Joe is buying it.
The source says that Joe is so angry with Teresa that he told her not to post any pictures of him on social media, which is why only the couple’s daughter Gia has shared photos of her dad since his release from a Pennsylvania ICE detention center.
The insider adds that Joe’s family supports his decision to divorce Teresa, as they have been less-than-thrilled with the way she has handled herself in recent months. While Joe was suffering in a detention center, Teresa was partying in Europe and posting lavish pics on social media, and it didn’t sit well with Joe’s mom, Filomena, or his brother, Peter.
While Joe was locked up, rumors also swirled that Teresa was ready to end the marriage and had met with a divorce attorney. However, the insider says that she put the divorce filing on hold because she “doesn’t want to give Joe any of the money that she has worked so hard for since he’s been in prison.”
Teresa and her four daughters are supposedly heading to Italy soon to reunite with Joe, and an insider says that Bravo cameras will be on hand to film the reunion. The network reportedly paid her a six-figure bonus to film Teresa’s first post-prison meeting with Joe.
Fans will just have to wait and see how this all plays out. But, one thing is for sure – Joe looks like a completely different person after his prison stint thanks to his incredible weight loss.
New episodes of Real Housewives of New Jersey will return to Bravo later this year.
