The Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ stars Joe Giudce and Teresa Giudice have separated after twenty years of marriage.
A source close to the family told People the separation is amicable.
The source said: “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.
“Joe has been out on a few dates, Teresa has not. She has been too busy with the girls, with work obligations and taking care of her father. She is happy for Joe.
They have been very friendly with one another and are very supportive of each other’s happiness. They still love one another, but as Teresa told Andy Cohen on the WWHL special, they are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Neither is interested in a long distance relationshp.”
However, despite the news, the sources say that there are no plans for a divorce.
Joe and Teresa are taking the time to focus on their kids and work out their issues. Their daughters will be visiting Joe for Christmas in Italy, while Teresa stays in New Jersey.
The couple has had a tumultuous year after serving prison sentences and Joe’s potential deportation to Italy.
