Teresa Guidice is putting her foot down when it comes to sleeping in the same bed as estranged husband Joe Giudice.
In a preview for an upcoming episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Teresa and her four daughters visit the 47-year-old in Italy, where he has been staying as he awaits the ruling on his final deportation appeal.
When they arrive at the hotel, Teresa grows concerned when Joe implies that they should share a bed.
“Are you sleeping here tonight?” she asks him. “Do you want to stay with the girls?”
Joe doesn’t seem too pleased with the idea, noting that their daughter’s beds are too small.
Teresa then questions if Joe was “expecting” to cozy up to her, to which he replies, “I mean, we got 20 years in our marriage.”
His response takes Teresa by surprise as she notes, “We haven’t been together in almost four years so it’s kinda weird.”
She reminds him, “I don’t know. It’s been a long time, you know? You need to slow it down.”
Joe seems defeated yet remains optimistic as he tells his wife, “Listen, by the end of this trip, things could change. Who the hell knows?”
In December 2019, the reality star couple (and high school sweethearts) announced that they were separating after 20 years of marriage.
The couple began experiencing marital issues after they were sentenced for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud.
The couple remained apart as Teresa served over 11 months in jail. After her release, Joe began his 41-month sentence and was deported to Italy.
Despite the separation, the duo has not pursued a divorce.
Joe spent the holidays in Italy with his daughters, while Teresa celebrated Christmas Eve with her family and ex-boyfriend Anthony Delorenzo.
