Move over, Teresa.
While his wife is still serving out her prison sentence, Joe Giudice has finished negotiating a deal with Bravo for his own reality show, centering on him and his four daughters.
Us Weekly reports that a source confirmed an hour-long special is already being filmed and more episodes may follow later.
Filming reportedly began earlier this month on the show that will explore life without wife, mom and former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, who began serving her 15-month sentence for fraud at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, in January. Joe has a prison sentence of his own coming up, but his was suspended while Teresa is behind bars so someone can care for the couple’s four children, Gia, 14, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 5.
Rumors about the TV special are nothing new. Joe spoke briefly about it back in April, when he confirmed to Us that he had met with Bravo to discuss the show.
“Now it’s something for our attorneys to figure out,” he said at the time.
In the meantime, Teresa is staying busy in prison with her own pursuits. Nothing has yet come of rumors saying she’s negotiating a reality series to give a behind-the-scenes look at her life behind bars, but even more persistent rumors have been saying she’s working on a tell-all memoir about her time in prison.
And, according to Joe, she’s still helping out with the girls as much as she can via email. It’s not always the best arrangement, he shared.
“They have their little breakdowns here and there,” Joe said about his daughters. “They’ll say, ‘Daddy, when’s she going to be out?’ Or ‘I miss Mommy.’ I just make sure to give them lots of love and a lot of kisses.”
