Joe began serving a 41-month prison sentence (which has since been reduced by five months) at Fort Dix in New Jersey in late March, and, after spending three weeks apart from his wife, the reunion was reportedly a very emotional experience.

"She was so happy to see him," a source told People magazine. "It was a very emotional visit."

It has taken a while for Teresa to get approval to visit Joe in prison because she has served time herself (making the process that much more complicated), but now that she has been approved, she and her four daughters will no doubt be making more regular visits. But, how is Joe finding life behind bars?

"Joe is doing well, but really misses Teresa and the girls," added the source.

The family attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., also commented on his client's prison term, revealing, "The staff and administration at Fort Dix have all been very pleasant to deal with, they are all extremely professional."

As for Teresa, she seems to really be enjoying her freedom and has maintained a very upbeat attitude, as evidenced by her Instagram posts. So, what has she been up to lately? She took to Instagram over the weekend to update fans on her recent activities, which included multiple dinner dates and the promotion of her memoir, Turning the Tables.
