As The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice begins day two of her fifteen month prison stint, Joe Giudice is trying to hold down the fort and keep it together for his four daughters. According to our source, he’s feeling an overwhelming amount of guilt.
Our source shared with us today that both Teresa and Joe are trying to be strong for their girls, but it’s definitely a struggle. Teresa will get to chat with her daughters today and see them already this weekend. Plus, the rumors of an early birthday party for Gia were true.
On Gia’s early 14th birthday party with her family (sans brother Joe Gorga). “It is true that Teresa had a small birthday party for Gia Sunday. Family and close friends were there. Her brother and his family did not attend. Joey didn’t reach out to her at all except by phone. Even the months leading up to now he hasn’t been there for her. It’s sad considering they had the closest sibling relationship I have even seen.” You could definitely tell at the reunion that Melissa and Teresa were not on very lovey sisterly terms and Teresa was icy to Melissa at every turn.
On Joe, “Joe Giudice is doing what he has to do and taking care of his kids. It all hit him like a ton of bricks last night. He is filled with guilt and very sad. He loves Teresa and wished he could have served her sentenve and his. He knows she lives for the girls and they will miss her tremendously. It is no surprise that her lawyer makes statements that she is “good” she knows Gia is on social media and of age to read the Internet. It’s her way to not have any negative stories so her kids don’t worry.”
On who is helping out Joe and the girls, “Teresa’s parents will be with the kids a lot and helping Joe. Teresa’s kids are extremely close with her parents.” Along with Joe’s sister Sheila, too.
On staying connected, “Teresa will call home tomorrow and this weekend will start her visitation. It will be a long road but, Teresa really is a strong person. All the fame, hair, makeup, jewelry, clothes, homes, mean nothing to her. Her kids are her world.”
On Teresa staying strong and not letting anyone see her down, “As for Teresa and the reports from inside the prison, she won’t let anyone see her weak. She saves those moments for when she is alone. She doesn’t want anything said or leaked that would upset her daughters. It’s really unreal how she is so strong. Part of it is also her pride, she won’t allow anyone to see her down and out. She did however show her vulnerable side in the courtroom. She did break down and cry to the judge.”
Our source also confirmed that the story of a raid on the Giudice home was completely false.
