Real Housewives of New Jersey is feeding us all kinds of spicy rumors. The most recent came from speculation in the current Season 10, as hints have been dropped that Teresa Giudice might've found a fling while her husband was in prison.
Teresa's husband, Joe Giudice, was sentenced to 41 months in prison for fraud and is currently in Italy trying to appeal his deportation. With all of this going on, a Season 10 promo clip, according to Distractify, shows Teresa hanging around with a man who is not Joe, while the voiceover claims she's been "cocktailing" around. In another clip, she shows the other housewives a picture of the same man without his shirt off and says, "He's the one I hooked up with."
It seems, however, that these are all just rumors. Us Weekly reported that this man is not a secret fling for Teresa. Instead, his name is Tony and he and Teresa just went to high school together. This week, the reality star even addressed all the rumors head on, maintaining her loyalty to Joe. She told Entertainment Tonight:
"I'm standing strong. I am who I am. And you know, I'm confident. ... What, like I can't have a drink? Like, what's wrong with that? It's like, I can't socialize? What's wrong with that? It's nobody's business who I socialize with. I have a good time just like they have a good time. So, if they have something to say, they can say it to my face and I will respond."
But Teresa has come under fire for infidelity allegations before, as fans of RHONJ will remember. The reality star was spotted holding hands with a younger man named Blake Schreck, although she denies they hooked up.
Could the old saying, "Where there's smoke, there's fire," apply here? Or is this just reality TV making a huge deal about nothing to amp up viewership? We'll have to wait and see.
Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 airs every Wednesday.
