Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice had an eventful 2019 full of ups and downs. And now he’s ready to put everything behind him and start the new year.
Giudice started 2019 in federal prison, ending the last few months of his 41-month sentence for bankruptcy fraud. Later, he was transferred to an ICE detention center before being deported to his native Italy pending the final decision in his deportation appeal.
Joe then separated from his wife Teresa Giudice after 20 years of marriage, but he was able to end the year on a happy note by celebrating Christmas with his four daughters: Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14 and Audriana, ten.
Joe went to Instagram this weekend to reflect on the past year, while making a big promise for 2020. In the legend of a photo collage of his family, the 47-year-old wrote: ” I posted this message in the morning but I suffocated and I removed it then I thought that part of the regrowth is acceptance !! “
He went on to write that he had done a lot of thinking about himself in the past year, and he now knows how to be happy and satisfied with who he is and what he has: “food, bed, air, girls and family ”. Joe says he learned from being locked up that all you have to do is love yourself and be the best.
“I am dropping 2019 with my beautiful daughters but I promise them THE BEST OF ME IN 2020 !!”, wrote Joe. “They make me proud in many ways and are my treasures. PS didn’t want to cut my baby, but the learning will come in time.” ???? ”
After Joe and Teresa split up, an insider told Entertainment Tonight that she had lived the life of a single mother for the past four years while Joe was in jail. She devoted herself to her children and to her career.
The source said that Teresa had known for a while that things were not going to work out with her and Joe because they had lived too long to start over. And it is “ready for a new start in 2020”.
Joe posted a storm this weekend and shared many photos of his old-fashioned wife and daughters. He said that 2019 had given him “all kinds of ????” but that he was ready for an exciting ride in 2020. Joe said it was the best week of his life to spend the holidays with his daughters.
Joe Giudice added that you cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction. And, all you need is a plan, a road map and the courage to continue. And, he is ready to change for his daughters.
New episodes of Real Housewives of New Jersey are broadcast Wednesday evening on Bravo.
