Joe Giudice

A new week, a new update on imprisoned Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice, courtesy of the all-too-eager family lawyer James Leonard Jr. 2 updates down, 162 to go.

James told People (because, of course) he visited Joe on Friday, adding, “He is doing as well as can be expected. I would say that he is adjusting very well. I know that he misses Teresa and their four daughters immensely, but Joe will get through this, just like Teresa did.”

James continued, “The staff and administration at Fort Dix have all been very pleasant to deal with, they are all extremely professional.”

While Joe‘s mother, Filomena, and sister, Maria, have been to visit, Teresa Giudice and their girls, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, haven’t because Teresa’s supervised release complicates her approval. “Teresa will be visiting with the girls as quickly as she’s approved by the prison, which should be within the next week,” said James.

James went on to shoot down the rumors which claimed Joe was 1) under the influence when he turned himself in and 2) moved to maximum security. “I was with Joe all morning up until the time he was taken into custody,” he said, “and I can tell you with absolute certainty that he was not drunk.”

Andy Cohen will be excited to know that Joe and Apollo Nida crossed paths. “Joe said Apollo was an absolute gentleman and helped him get acclimated and that they had a nice talk,” reported James.

That said, Joe and Apollo will not become Behind Bars Bravo Buddies anytime soon, as Apollo has reportedly been moved to maximum security. According to Radar, so take it or leave it, Apollo was caught with a cell phone.

Radar reported: “The prison staff took Apollo’s violation very seriously. He was taken out of camp with the general population and placed in maximum security.” Apollo will reportedly be there for 18 months. While there, his visitors (including Phaedra Parks and sons, Ayden and Dylan, if they were to visit again) will be subjected to full body scans.

Speaking of Phaedra, the Fort Dix insider told Radar that Phaedra hasn’t been questioned about the cell phone Apollo allegedly got his hands on. Not that he needs her help… getting his hands on things he shouldn’t have is his specialty.
