“I always told my mom, if you go, I’m going,” she says, crying, then asks for some water. It is part of my identity.” What if she had no choice in the matter and the show ended? I don’t know whatever my path is supposed to be, that’s where I’m going to walk. You’re so not like me.’”Giudice’s voice cracks again, and she wells up. But she wanted the girls to have a fun summer, so focused on that. “I’m not going to walk away from it now, it’s part of me now.Her husband, Joe, is currently serving his 41-month sentence. Her view of their marriage right now would be best summed up as “wait and see,” with hopes of a positive outcome. I wanted him to take responsibility for what happened and he did and he’s serving his time but even (to take responsibility) with me, and he has. Until she gave birth to her eldest daughter Gia—who, her mom says, wants to become a lawyer after all that happened to her parents—Giudice worked at Macy’s as a buyer. I would ask questions, but he would never tell me anything.
He wants the marriage to survive, as she does, says Giudice. “No, I have a lot of friends but no dating.” Does she plan to before Joe is released?
The book title really does sum up her mood, she says.
