A few weeks ago, we saw a clip from Real Housewives of New Jersey in which pint-sized mafioso Joe Giudice called his wife Teresa a “bitch” and a c u next Tuesday when she asked him who he was talking to on the phone. Now we know who he was talking to – one of his mistresses, predictably. We’ve heard rumors for years that Joe steps out on Teresa, there have been photos of him with another woman and allegations that he has a secret love child with a mistress. All of this talk makes Teresa even more combative and shriller than usual as she defends her husband at every turn. Well I’m sure she’ll deny and try to explain away this latest story, which was semi-confirmed by the parents of the woman Joe has been cheating with. According to the National Enquirer, the young woman’s parents, with whom she lives, confirm that their daughter is always hanging out with Joe, but say they’re “just friends.”
The East Hanover, New Jersey woman is a 25-year-old “sexy” co-ed at Caldwell College “with curves galore,” her friend told the National Enquirer, adding she “has loads of energy.
“For a short, fat guy, Joe managed to get a real beauty,” the friend said of Joe’s mistress, who is not named in the story for privacy reasons. (Her parents confirmed to the National Enquirer that their daughter and Joe “know each other through work.”
The pal continued, “Chances are good that if Joe was just a regular guy who didn’t appear on a hit TV show, she would never have looked his way. She probably likes the fame he has, thanks to his wife.”
Insiders have spotted Joe and his mistress at the Iron Bar in Morristown, New Jersey.
“Their behavior was highly inappropriate, especially for a married man being out late at night with such a young woman,” a bartender at the establishment, who saw them there over the summer, told the National Enquirer. “They came in as part of a small group, but they only had eyes for each other and got very touchy-feely.
“It appeared to be a date with their friends running interference.”
As we previously reported, in the August episode, Joe, 42, took a call he claimed to be work-related, but answered saying, “Hi baby.”
When Teresa, 40, investigated what he was doing, Joe told the caller, “Here comes my bitch wife … she’s such a c***.” (He later told Teresa the caller was a co-worker who didn’t speak English.)
The print edition of National Enquirer has more quotes from the girl’s mom, who says “That’s just Joe being Joe. They know each other through work.” Mmhmm. They also include the detail that Joe and this woman have “been spotted out numerous times” at the bar mentioned in the story. The question is: will Teresa finally dump Joe, or will she continue to believe his lies and excuses? Given how she’s stood by him so far, I think we know the answer to that. He’s not going to leave her, she’s the one making all the money now. Also, I’m not saying she could do better.
There’s more of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion coming. Part three airs this Sunday. It’s been so explosive so far, but you know they saved the best for last.
