Teresa and Joe Giudice Say Farewell as He Embarks on 41-Month Prison Sentence
Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe parted ways on Wednesday morning as he left to turn himself in to New Jersey’s Federal Correction Institute in Fort Dix where he will carry out his 41-month prison sentence for bankruptcy fraud. TMZ reports that he will not be getting Bravo’s special treatment like Teresa did when the network covered her time in jail through a 3-part special, but his arrival to the prison gates will be shown on the season 7 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Teresa shared a photo of her husband and her daughter Gia on Twitter just the day prior.

Joe told People magazine that going to the slammer will be like rehabilitation for him “I am not going to be able to drink for a while which is good because I don’t even know when it’s been since I haven’t had a drink,” he said. “It’s been a long time. Definitely the whole year I definitely drank every day couple bottles at night just to go to bed.”
Teresa recently completed her 11-month term in jail at the Danbury Federal Correction Institute in Connecticut, where she was inspired to write a tell-all memoir based on her experience with potato logs and Vicks VapoRub.
