It's over. Teresa Giudice is not counting down the days until her husband, Joe Giudice, is released from jail. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has been open about the state of her relationship after her husband got them into quite the legal mess. But, sources exclusively told In Touch that the 45-year-old reality star is ready to end their marriage.
“Teresa is done with Joe and is already making plans for a life without him,” a source exclusively told In Touch. "After everything, Joe put her through, she feels she deserves the freedom to do whatever she pleases. She hits the bars and clubs all the time and enjoys herself. She has moved on from Joe and is on the prowl looking for a new, rich man.”
And while she has denied cheating rumors, the mom-of-four hasn't been shy about the fact that she's not sure her marriage will work once her husband finishes his 41-month sentence. “People think that I’d never leave Joe. But that’s not the case,” she wrote in her new book, Standing Strong. "If things with Joe aren’t good... between us when he gets home, I’d absolutely end our relationship.”
According to the source, Teresa is bracing for that to happen. “She literally has been asking friends, ‘Tell me where all the hot, rich men hang out. I want to go there!’” the source said. “Teresa is clearly ready to move on.”
If the couple does split, there's no denying that Teresa will be upset. They share four daughters — Gia, 16, Gabriella, 12, Milania, 11, and Audriana, 8 — together and built a life together. “She adored Joe. She loved him to death and has always been loyal to him — until now," the source added. "She is sad things have come to this, but she is looking forward to a bright future.”
