Joe was sentenced to a 41-month prison sentence after pleading guilty for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud in October 2014. Teresa, 50, was also found guilty of fraud charges and sentenced to 15 months in jail.

Following his fraud sentence, Joe was deported from America. The Italian native now lives in the Bahamas and has since gotten divorced from Teresa after 20 years of marriage. In addition to Gabriella and Gia, they also share daughters Audriana, 13, and Milania, 17.

In August 2022, Teresa got remarried to Luis Ruelas. Appearing on Jana Kramer's podcast Whine Down last fall, Teresa opened up about why Ruelas thought it was important for him to forge a relationship with her ex-husband.

"When he set it up, the dinner with my ex, he DM'ed him and I didn't even know about it," Teresa revealed. "We were going to the Bahamas to pick up my youngest ... and he DM'ed him."

After some initial panic and pushback from Teresa, Luis explained the importance of the three getting together.

"He's like, 'Babe, don't you understand? I want to be good with Joe cause it'll make the girls feel comfortable,' " she shared, adding, "I'm just saying, he's a gem. He really is."

Teresa also celebrated a smooth co-parenting relationship with Joe, adding, "It's great. My kids are really happy."
