Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe Giudice, opened up to Bravo TV boss Andy Cohen about what’s next for their marriage on “Joe and Teresa: Unlocked” — and they reflected on their years together, seemingly coming to terms with the fact they may have to go their separate ways if the 47-year-old is, in fact, deported. Joe also reacted to Teresa, also 47, being photographed with a mystery man back in February.

“I mean listen, I don’t like that she said that and I don’t like that she took a photo with another man,” Joe told Andy, 51, about Teresa’s beach date with male friend Blake Schreck. “But I’ve asked about the guy. Said he was a friend. I don’t know what kind of friend.” Believe it or not, Joe didn’t know Tre and Blake were on the beach together, back when they were photographed in Miami  — and Andy had to help fill him in.

“Listen, as long as she’s happy, that’s all that really matters,” Joe explained. “I’m not going to tell her what to do. If she doesn’t feel like she wants to be with me anymore, that’s the thing to do.”

On Teresa’s end, things seemed a little more certain. “I don’t see it working,” she told Andy while confirming her daughters are aware of the situation. “They are. The baby, not so much. I think they get it. I don’t think they want to see it happen, obviously. But I think they understand because the way I explained it to them. How are we going to live apart? I don’t think like that he would be faithful. I don’t. I think he would have someone there and have me here. I don’t want to live that life. I just don’t.”

Though Joe seemed to be in agreement with Tre in general, he definitely still has deep love for her. “Of course. She’s my wife and I’ve been with her for a long time,” he explained. “Known her since she was a kid. Baby, actually. So of course, I’ll always love her. No matter what happens, I’ll always love her.”

Teresa also revealed that the family is going to go to Italy in a few weeks because their children have off of school for a teacher’s convention. Surprisingly, she even revealed she was nervous about the trip because they were going to be exploring their marriage again for the first time in years — and determining whether or not it still has potential to survive.

“I’ve been on my own now for three years and seven months and I don’t, you know, we’re both two different people now and you know, and I don’t know. I’m not the same Teresa I was and I know he’s not the same Joe. Like I don’t. No matter what, I always want to respect each other,” she revealed. “And I do love him as a person. I do. I still care about him. I love him. I don’t know how I’m going to feel when I see him. That’s why I’m so nervous when I see him. I love him. He’s my husband. We have children together.”

But believe it or not, she wasn’t into her once “juicy” hubby while he was behind bars. “I mean not while he was in there, no. Every time I saw him, I saw nothing. I don’t know if it was the place where he was at,” she revealed. “I really didn’t. I never wanted to kiss him or anything because I didn’t like the whole environment and he knew like I didn’t like to kiss in front of you know all the people watching us and everything.”

Plus, losing her mother so shortly after her prison sentence ended really put a strain on their connection. “And I have to say, like I lost my mom, I got really angry. I did. You know I did,” Teresa said. “I got really angry. Getting over it, but I’m happy that he’s out. I’m happy, like I’m happy.”
