“The beard looks good,” the brunette beauty commented on a photo of Joe enjoying a meal with some new friends and rocking a new look. “Friend just opened [a] restaurant and invited us. Very good aged meats,” Joe captioned the picture posted on Sunday, December 22. Facial hair looks good on the Italian native, if we say so ourselves.
It looks like Joe’s fans agree. “You are a handsome man Joe Giudice! All the best to you,” one follower commented, while another added, “You look great Joe! Love the beard.” A third echoed, “I agree with @teresagiudice the beard looks good x.” Other fans noticed how happy and relaxed the reality star seemed. “You look great @joe.giudice, like a weight has been lifted from your shoulders. Merry Christmas to you and your family,” one user wrote.
We are so happy to see Joe looking in high spirits this holiday season. The proud dad definitely had a rough couple of years. Joe completed a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud in March, but was immediately transferred to ICE custody since he is not a United States citizen. In October, a judge granted his request to return to his native country of Italy, where he awaits a verdict in his deportation appeal.
Teresa and their four daughters took a trip to visit Joe as a free man, and although the family looked happy to be reunited, Teresa and Joe’s marriage was definitely in trouble with so much time apart and a looming deportation sentence.
The two announced they decided to break up after 20 years of marriage on December 17. “Teresa and Joe have split, but everyone saw it coming. No one is really surprised,” the source told In Touch at the time. “Even their daughters knew it was coming and their recent trip to Italy was all about spending quality time together and discussing the real issue at hand — they were splitting up.”
Since their separation, Teresa has been spotted with Anthony Delorenzo, a.k.a “Tony the pool guy.” The two were seen getting cozy as they grabbed a bite to eat. It’s nice to see Joe and Teresa moving on, although they still have respect for each other.
