We all knew that it was coming, but Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice have officially split after 20 years of marriage.

“They discussed their future when Teresa and the girls went to Italy in early November and they agreed that each had to move on. They are doing so amicably and very slowly,” a source told PEOPLE. 

“Joe has been out on a few dates, Teresa has not. She has been too busy with the girls, with work obligations and taking care of her father. She is happy for Joe. They have been very friendly with one another and are very supportive of each other’s happiness. They still love one another, but as Teresa told Andy Cohen on the WWHL special, they are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Neither is interested in a long distance relationship.”

Teresa had made it clear from the start that if Joe was deported back to Italy, she would divorce him.
