Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice is reportedly considering splitting for her husband Joe Giudice.
According to HollywoodLife, Teresa is no longer considering moving to Italy with husband Joe, 46, if he’s deported.
“Teresa is confident that staying in the United States is what’s best for her and her daughters at this time,” a source told HollywoodLife.
“Teresa is still deeply hurt and upset that this entire situation has happened to her family and since Joe has been away, [she] has had a lot of time to reflect on everything.”
Joe is currently serving a 41-month prison sentence in Pennsylvania over mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud charges. He is due to be released from prison in March but is facing a deportation order back to Italy. Teresa had previously said that she would move back with Italy with Joe if he is ultimately deported.
“She is seeing that she can balance life as a single, working mom and she’s thriving. It’s making her realize she needs to put herself and her daughters first,” the source adds.
In the current season of RHONJ, viewers have seen Teresa revel in her independence. She is holding things down on the parenting side as well as taking care of her father. In a recent episode, she even came third in her first-ever body-building competition - something Joe had banned her from doing in the past.
