Teresa Giudice 'Will Never Leave' Husband, Says Source

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" cast member Teresa Giudice might be talking split-up on her In Touch cover, but friends of the reality queen say she will never leave Joe.

"Teresa will never, ever leave Joe. She adores him and will always make excuses for his behavior," a friend of hers told me. "He was caught on tape talking with a mystery woman, calling his wife a 'bitch' and a 'c***' and she chose not to see the red flag. Even if she caught him naked with another woman, she would believe that the wind blew both of their clothes off!"

Teresa told the magazine that she felt she had been "kicked in the stomach" and "humiliated," adding, "if it turns out Joe is cheating, I will not be with him. I will totally leave him." However, friends say that it will never happen.

The day after HuffPost Celebrity broke the story about the content of the controversial episode, Teresa appeared on CBS's "The Couch," insisting that everything was fine between them.

"I would never touch on anyone's marriage -- it's just not my style. I wish them well," Teresa's sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, tells me, adding that the two of them don't talk very much anymore. "We are not in a great place right now. I wish it could be better but it's not."
