JOE GIUDICE

ED HARTWELL

Atlanta

NAME: Ed Hartwell

HIS HOUSEWIFE: Lisa Wu

“I knew Lisa was my wife the day I met her,” says the former NFL player, 31. Just days later “she went out of town, and I called her and said, ‘When you get back, I’ll have my closet cleaned out.'”

NAME: Joe Giudice

HIS HOUSEWIFE: Teresa

What did the father of four girls, 39, think when his wife (and childhood friend) angrily flipped over a table on the show? “It was a turn-on,” he says. “She may come off like a ditz, but she’s not. She [takes control]!”

NAME: Donn Gunvalson

HIS HOUSEWIFE: Vicki

While he gushes over his “career woman” wife, the business exec, 47, still cringes over the time Vicki criticized (on-air) his ability to fill her “love tank.” Says Donn: “My buddies are still brutal!”

NAME: Bobby Zarin

HIS HOUSEWIFE: Jill

“Fate put us together,” the business owner, 63, says of meeting his wife, whose nephew went to camp with his son. Though they differ in many ways (“I’m laid-back; she’s aggressive!” he notes), “we [both] love to travel.”
