Real Housewives of New Jersey (RHONJ) viewers have had front-row seats to the rise and fall of Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice’s relationship — from romance to prison sentence to, in the latest revelation, a confession from Joe that he “failed” with his marriage.
And the drama isn’t over yet, as Giudice followed up his confession by leaving some flirty Instagram emoji on Teresa’s social media photos.
Joe Giudice confesses he ‘failed’ marriage to Teresa Giudice
Joe Giudice and Teresa Giudice were married for two decades.
They waited until the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 10 finale at the end of February to reveal that they are separated, reported the Today show.
In the wake of that announcement, Joe seems to have some concerns that he is perceived as an RHONJ villain rather than a devoted dad and loving husband.
Consequently, Giudice turned to Instagram over the weekend to post a series showing his family, along with his toast, to “new beginnings.”
Teresa Giudice’s separated husband also chose the social media platform to admit that his marriage “failed” regardless of his efforts.
“No matter how much 💯 energy and time I devoted to trying it failed. I did my best and put all efforts into making this a great experience for my family. I did try to address issues in the relationship that bothered me throughout the years in return 🎥 portrayed it as Criticism!”
Giudice also wrote about his plans for his new life in Italy away from “lingering toxins and undesirable demands.”
So is his marriage truly over?

Never say “never” in Real Housewives land, where stars blossom, burn, and then rise again in each season.
In the wake of Joe and Teresa announcing their separation, the RHONJ star’s separated husband turned to her Instagram to put flirty “on fire” emojis, pointed out the Daily Mail.

Joe’s response was quick, showing he closely follows his estranged wife’s Instagram.
“Thank you to everyone that came out to support a beautiful charity gala @paws4you,” wrote Teresa in her caption.
But Giudice made it clear that his focus was on the beauty of his separated wife, not the gala, with his “on fire” emojis response shared within minutes of her post.
Is Giudice seeking to flirt with and win back Teresa?
Or is his goal with those “on fire” emojis simply to demonstrate his statement that he wanted to be a wonderful father and husband rather than play the role of villain in his marriage?
There’s a third possibility, with at least one fan speculating on Joe’s Instagram that Bravo will give him a spin-off about his life in Italy.
