Teresa Giudice is officially single. The RHONJ star’s divorce from Joe Giudice is final. The couple split after 20 years of marriage and Joe’s deportation to his native Italy. In addition to doing away without her wedding ring, Teresa is also getting rid of her marital home. She recently put her custom-built New Jersey mansion on the market for $2.5 million.
Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice’s divorce
Reality television has been a blessing and a curse for this once happy couple. They appeared to have it all with a mansion that viewers watched Joe build during season 1. But it all began crashing down when federal agents accused the Giudice’s of fraud.
Teresa insists that she had no idea of any fraudulent activities on Joe’s behalf. Both served jail time. Teresa spent 15 months in prison and Joe spent three and a half years and was also deported back to Italy.
During that time, the couple put on a united front but Teresa eventually began feeling resentful and it grew when her mother died. She blames Joe for losing out on precious time with her sick mother.
“There’s a lot of resentment that I’m going through,” Teresa said during the RHONJ season 10 finale. “He was supposed to be my protector, but he let me down.”
They announced their separation in December 2019. Joe is living in Italy and appealing his deportation case, which his legal team, unfortunately, says he may not win.
Luckily, Teresa continues to be a source of emotional support for her ex and still has love for him.
“Joe and Teresa are in an amazing place and are very supportive of one another,” a source tells PEOPLE Magazine. “They still have love for each other, they just aren’t in love with each other.”
A look inside of Teresa Giudice’s mansion; why she’s selling her home
Joe and Teresa’s Montville, New Jersey mansion is currently on the market for $2.5 million, according to Page Six. The 10,000-square-foot home has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, and sits on four acres. The home boasts a Cinderella staircase, a gourmet kitchen, and a private wine cellar. Teresa also recently added a pool and upgraded her great room.
The new owners will also enjoy an “exquisite master suite” that features three walk-in closets, a dressing room, and a gas fireplace. Outside awaits a three-car garage and a two-car detached garage.
As for why she’s selling the home, a source tells Page Six, “Teresa’s just ready to start a new chapter.” She also says the upkeep of the home is expensive.
Additionally, Teresa’s children are growing and she may no longer need such a large space. Her eldest daughter Gia is in her second year of college. Her youngest daughter is 10.
Viewers will get to see Teresa’s transition on the upcoming 11th season of RHONJ.
