Real Housewives’ Teresa Giudice Spends Christmas with Ex, Joe With Daughters
Reality star Teresa Giudice enjoyed her Christmas holiday surrounded by family and her ex-boyfriend Anthony Delorenzo, while her ex Joe spent the holidays with their daughters. Giudice’s beau took to his Instagram Story on Wednesday to share and repost pictures and videos of his holiday spent with The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, her brother Joe Gorga, and his wife Melissa Gorga.
News of Giudice and Delorenzo’s rekindled romance comes after she recently announced her split from her husband of 20 years, Joe Giudice. Joe and Teresa had been central figures on The Real Housewives of New Jersey since the popular Bravo show premiered back in 2009. The couple married back in October of 1999 and welcomed four daughters: Gia, Milania, Gabriella, and Audrina. Viewers saw the married couple go through serious legal trouble after being indicted for filing a false bankruptcy report that sent Teresa to prison for 11 months and Joe for 41 months – which ended in his deportation back to Italy earlier this year. Teresa and the couple’s four daughters went to visit Joe in Italy after a bombshell interview with Andy Cohen where Joe and Teresa revealed that the trip would help them determine the status of their relationship. But it appears their decision was to separate and try their hand at co-parenting. However, a divorce has not been made final.
While the estranged couple’s daughter’s spent Christmas in Italy with their dad, Teresa spent the holiday cuddling up with her ex Delorenzo. According to People, Delorenzo posted a few clips on Instagram that showed his holiday well spent with Giudice. In one clip, Delorenzo is seen holding up a glass of wine as Joe proclaims, “We only hang with family here at the Gorgas.” Another clip shows Joe joking about his sister’s former pool boy turned boyfriend. “The pool boy, here we come,” Joe joked as Delorenzo says, “What I tell you about that pool boy sh–.” During a recent episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa revealed that she had hired Delorenzo to build a pool for her New Jersey home. But, later in the episode, costar Dolores Catania joked about Teresa’s past relationship with Delorenzo.
In one Christmas Eve clip of the double date, Melissa shared her own video with Delorenzo where she joked that Teresa and Anthony are the “new couple.” Delorenzo later shared a group photo of himself with Teresa, Melissa, and Joe with a caption that read, “Merry Christmas Eve.” On the same day as her holiday breakfast with Delorenzo, Teresa left a comment on her estranged husband’s recent Instagram post where she wrote, “beard looks good.” It appears things are still friendly and cordial between Teresa and Joe, despite recently announcing their split.
It was only last Tuesday when it was confirmed that Teresa and Joe would be separating. Close sources added that the couple “have been separated,” and wanted to both move on. However, at the time the source said Teresa was not dating anyone, People reports. “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,” the source said. While many are sad to see Teresa and Joe’s marriage possibly end, many fans of the show have hope for the Giudice family.
