'RHONJ' star Joe Giudice has broken his silence about the break up of his 20-year marriage to Teresa Giudice, and his message is simple, just remember we were friends before we were a reality tv stars.
Giudice, who currently living in Italy and fighting to be able to return to the United States to live near his family, took to Instagram to address the situation with his estranged with Teresa.
We Were Friends Before This All Happened
"Don’t fall in! Whatever happens in our future, remember we were friends to begin with. We will always stay strong. It’s not distance that breaks a couple it’s actions! I’m growing and learning more from today’s generation. egocentrism was thing in baby boomer and gen x era. Now, Millennials believe in joint effort not separating roles," he began.
The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star continued, "Not, that I didn’t love my era I see the ego thing got in my way like a trap. one bedroom is good Today, simplicity, girls and family first, and actions speak louder than a car or big things.💪🇮🇹👏☝️#familyiseverything #awakening #kids #future"
The Good Old Days...
It's clear, living a different lifestyle in Italy has changed the way Joe views his life, and it seems he may be angling to get back with his wife someday.
As we reported, despite the couple's marriage lasting through two prison sentences and raising four daughters, his deportation case seemed to be too much for Teresa and Joe.
The couple ended their 20-year marriage last month, and according to People, they decided to move on "amicably and very slowly."
At the time the couple 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."
As for moving on...following the announcement, Teresa was seen getting cozy with a new man named Anthony Delorenzo. Teresa was snapped leaving a restaurant with the new guy whose arms were wrapped around her.
Teresa's lawyer denied the two were dating and said they are just friends. "People should spend time with their families and enjoy the Christmas holiday, not worry about Teresa Giudice eating breakfast with a longtime friend," the lawyer told Us Weekly.
As for divorce...or maybe even reconciliation...the couple claims they are not rushing towards filing any legal documents, but it's unclear if Joe's message will change Teresa's mind.
