Call it the prison diet.
Joe, who has appeared on the Real Housewives of New Jersey with wife Teresa and the Gorgas, is currently serving out a 41-month sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud. He reported to the Federal Correctional Institution at Fort Dix last March. (Teresa, 45, served a nearly yearlong stint in prison herself for the same crimes.)
“Well, I remember when I first started doing the show everybody kept asking me, ‘Where do you see yourself five years from now? Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?’ — I’m not answering that question anymore,” she said. “Because if you would have asked me back then if I thought I would ever go to prison, I would have said never. So I can’t predict the future, I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future.”
“I want [our marriage] to work,” she added. “But you know, when Joe comes home, he has to do the right thing. And then we’ll just move on from there.”

“Their [extracurricular] activities come first … then work, that’s really important for me, I need to work,” she said. “So I would say we go see him once every two weeks, once every three weeks. It depends on the schedule.”
