Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is not going to let a little thing like her husband, Joe Giudice, being in prison keep her down – she’s got a book to promote, after all, and in case you haven’t heard, there’s a sequel to Turning Tables coming out in June.
“We’re a strong family,” Teresa told Reality TV World at a recent book signing, “and now they have their mommy and we’re going to make it through. I’m with them all the time. I mean, right now, I came to work for a few hours but I’m going right back home.”
Teresa added, repeating herself, “I’m with them all the time. My daughter had a soccer game last night, she had a soccer game this morning, and she has another one tomorrow morning. So, I’m with them all the time. I mean, whenever I have to work, I work but I go right back home and be with my babies. They are my life. I live for them. They need their mommy.”

About her memoir, Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again, Teresa shared, “Everybody thinks they know me from watching, but that is just a part of me, and I just wanted everyone to get to know the real Teresa – the Teresa from how I was raised, my background, everything about me. Then you can say you fully know the real Teresa.”
“When you watch the show, it is just a part of me,” she repeated. “[In the book], you can see how I was brought up, my values, my traditions, and then you get to know the real Teresa. Like how I met Joe and had my children. Everything… everyone who has read the book said they loved it.” Values? <side eye>
Teresa confirmed that she’s writing a sequel to Turning the Tables, “Yes, I am going to have a follow-up book to this one. It’s coming out in June. [It will cover] from when I got released from jail to when [Joe Giudice] went in.”
Everyone and everything in Teresa‘s world is “great.” At the time, Milania and Audriana were in Hershey, PA, with Pete and Shelia, and they’re all great. Gia? Great! Joe Gorga? Great! Can someone please introduce her to a thesaurus?
“Milania always has us laughing,” said Teresa. “And Gia‘s great. She’s 15. Her body is, like, ‘Oh my God!’ I just want to lock her up in the house and not let her out. And my brother is doing good. He’s doing really great.”
Moving on to Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa shared that Season 7 will premiere in July, with Teresa, Jacqueline Laurita, Melissa Gorga, and two new housewives. The twins, Nicole and Teresa, the weasel’s wife, Amber, and Dina Manzo are gone.
“Dina found an amazing guy,” gushed Teresa. “Yes. I am so happy for her. She lives in California and I’m sad about that, but I do, you know, she does come back and forth. His name is Dave, and they are so cute and they are so happy. She finally found her true love and I’m so happy for her. Like, finally! Thank you God! She’s really happy and I’m happy for her.”
About her relationship with Melissa, Teresa claimed, “Everything is good. You know what? She’s my sister-in-law. Family is family. Listen, you’re not always going to love what family says or does or whatever, but you always forgive. She is married to my brother. I love them both. And I love my niece and nephews.”
Teresa said she is in the process of becoming a yoga instructor. She added that she “can’t live without” yoga now, then made a point to say, again, that her main focus is her family, “I am definitely going to focus on the kids and spend a lot of time with my girls. I am done filming now, so it is a little bit of a break. But I never stop working.”
Speaking of work, Reality TV World asked Teresa if Real Housewives of New Jersey fans should expect a Teresa spinoff in the future, “Right now, I like being on Housewives. I don’t know about having my own spinoff. We’ll see. It’s, you know, a lot of focus on your family, and I don’t know if my kids are ready for that.”
Right…because Teresa always does what is in the best interest of her children. <eye roll> Spare me – both the spinoff and the priorities nonsense.
