LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Joe Giudice battles threat of a prison sentence, cheating claims, and an alleged mistress telephone call tonight on RHONJ. Joe Giudice could go to prison, having already served time in jail, if convicted of recent criminal charges. But tonight, Joe is charged with treating his wife Teresa Giudice with disrespect.
But is Joe Giudice cheating on Teresa? And if so, who is Joe Giudice’s mistress? Teresa for months has told news that she and Joe are in love, and that their relationship is strong as ever. She also claims that he doesnâ€™t have a mistress, and that she is committed to him despite any criminal legal troubles.
But tonight, Joe reveals that he calls his wife deplorable names. He does so even with a Bravo live microphone on him and a video camera recording. He calls Teresa names, not just when she is not in his presence, but even face to face while cameras are taping.
And while Teresa has often be accused of acting with rose colored glasses on RHONJ, she has thrown them off about Joeâ€™s remarks She said she was hurt, she would not defend Joe Giudice’s comments, and she made it clear that she would stay with him if he continued.
In Touch Magazine reports this month “While Teresa clings to the belief that Joe was on the phone with a ‘worker’ at the New Jersey pizzeria he owned, she tells In Touch, ‘I am not stupid,’ adding that if Joe continues to humiliate her like this, ‘I will not be with him. I will totally leave him.” She also tell news “I felt like Iâ€™d been kicked in the stomach. I was humiliated. I canâ€™t defend him on this. Iâ€™m hurt by him and disappointed by him.”
Meantime, there is far more going on for Joe Giudice. First, he has rejected a plea deal in his criminal case. Passaic County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Jay McCann had required that Joe serve time in state prison. Now, Joe has decided to defend the case. If Joe goes to trial and is convicted, he faces five years in state prison.
Second, Teresa since fall 2011 has told news that Joe has not been cheating on her. â€śDuring that time, the stories about my own marriage were brutal”. Teresa said her way to deal with the allegations was to renew her wedding vows. ” I was asked to address them with a vow renewal in a magazine.â€ť She added â€śI thought it would be a good thing to let my fans know we were OK, and for my girls to see and participate in; to see how much Joe and I still love each other.â€ť
Third, both Giudices have claimed that he does not and did not have a mistress when Bravo filming was occurring.
