Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice, has revealed that he knew that he had to walk away from his wife, Teresa Giudice, who he has been married to for more than twenty years -- after she refused to sleep with him.

"This was the moment, I knew deep in my heart she was being difficult with me for a reason. My wife has never said no to sleeping with me. I had to walk away," he captioned the post, sharing a video clip.

"That was my moment of insight. I felt rejected. This is the first time while filming a scene, I had severe anxiety and grief. I was 🔒 up for four years, any human would have a psychological impact of prison life," he wrote.

Joe has been deported back to Italy and is awaiting news from the US government as to whether he can return to the country, but both announced that after two decades of marriage -- they would be seeking divorce.
