Joe Giudice Takes Full Blame for Teresa's Jail Time, Talks About Her Time in Prison (Video)

Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Joe Giudice sat down for a tell-all interview with the Today show on Wednesday (October 7) to discuss his wife Teresa, her jail time, and more.

“I was to blame, sure,” the 43-year-old reality star said of the situation. “I took full responsibility for everything, but they still put her away. I was supposed to go away, not her. That was part of the plea, or I thought anyway. I don’t know what happened in the courtroom that day.”

“I was just signing my name. I would never fill out anything. I wasn’t an accountant, I wasn’t a mortgage person, I wasn’t a banker,” Joe said of his legal problems. He also added about the rumors that he has been dating other people, “I don’t date anybody. I don’t go on dates. None of that is true.”

Joe also spoke with ET about his wife in prison. “She’s holding up. I can’t say she’s doing great but she looks good. She keeps her spirits up and tries to make us feel like she’s OK but she’s really not. She wants to be home.”

“She says she’s got an easy job, she likes it, she doesn’t wanna change, I think she wipes down a couple tables a day. She’s done within three minutes and that her job. I think she’s making a dollar a day or maybe a dollar a month, I’m not sure,” Joe added.
