As The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Joe Giudice prepares to begin his 41-month prison sentence, all eyes are on our favorite felonious family.
Joe and Teresa Giudice, who has already served her own 11 months in prison, attended a fundraiser for autism thrown by fellow co-stars Robyn Levy and Christina Flores. Giudice didn’t appear to be in the party mood, reports Radar Online.
“Teresa and Joe showed up together,” a witness shared to Radar. “But Teresa seemed more into the event than Joe.”
The source continued, “Joe, who is usually lively and gregarious, seemed totally unlike his regular, jovial self. He was out of sorts, quiet and didn’t seem to be mentally present.”
That sounds about right for someone who’s about to begin more than three years in prison.
Giudice spent his time in the RHONJ VIP booth looking “worried” and “somber” while everyone else looked “fabulous,” said the very concerned eyewitness. He didn’t even have any wine! “I didn’t seem him drinking anything all night!” said the source — he and Teresa even left two untouched champagne flutes in front of them.
Giudice told Entertainment Tonight that he’s hoping to use prison to start a healthier lifestyle, including cutting back on drinking. He also shared his five-year plan, which is simply returning “home, where the gates are closed,” and where there are “no cameras.”
