The Real Housewives of New Jersey is wrapping up an explosive Season 12. Fans learned last week that Danielle Staub is telling the truth about Teresa Giudice encouraging her to pull a co-star’s hair.

TV Shows Ace reports that the reunion tapings ended with security escorting the other ladies out the back door after Danielle went off the rails. However, the reunion episodes were taped before the February 19 episode, meaning the other women likely didn’t know about Teresa’s role in the fight before the reunion.
The reunion episodes will air in March, but fans can expect a lot of drama in the season finale later this week.
The Writing Was on the Wall, or Rather, Phone
As fans know, Joe and Teresa Giudice have spent all of Season 12 apart. Joe moved to Italy in October to wait out his deportation appeal. Teresa and their four daughters went to visit him around Thanksgiving. That episode of their reunion is just now airing.
That’s not to say Joe has been completely absent from this season. The audio of tense phone calls revealed a fractured marriage and a lot of built-up resentment. In one argument, Joe told his wife that he never wanted to marry her in the first place.
It surprised no one when Joe and Teresa announced their separation a few months ago.
RHONJ’s Joe Giudice Makes Raw Instagram Post About ‘Rejection’
Joe took to his Instagram account earlier this week to share a preview of the emotional next episode of RHONJ. In his caption, the former contractor opened up about the moment he knew his marriage was over.
Teresa admitted recently that she knew the marriage was over for a while, but it seems Joe was taken aback.
The RHONJ star cites Teresa’s unwillingness to share a bed with him as the dead giveaway that it was over. According to Joe, she had never turned down sleeping with him. He wrote,
That was my moment of insight. I felt rejected.”
He went on to say that he didn’t have any resentment toward his estranged wife. However, he knew he had to walk away from their marriage, People reports.

That was my moment of insight. I felt rejected. This is the first time while filming a scene, I had severe anxiety and grief. I was 🔒 up for four years, any human would have a psychological impact of prison life. This was the moment, I knew deep in my heart she was being difficult with me for a reason. My wife has never said no to sleeping with me. I had to walk away. I don’t have resentment against her(her emotions are justified). it was off guard should have been private. I realized I must be responsible for only my kids that’s what matters. I want to provide, encourage, embrace them with my love in limited time together. #walk #daughter #loveyourself #familytime #italy🇮🇹 #encouragement #embrace #mindfulness #moment
Coronavirus Hits Italy
Most people have probably heard of Coronavirus, even if just in passing. It’s a respiratory illness that first affected people in China and is now spreading throughout the world. The U.S. and Europe had just a few cases at first, but in recent weeks, Italy has seen a surge in Coronavirus cases.
Joe’s family attorney recently assured People that Joe and his Italian family are safe from the virus. The lawyer said,
The family is praying for all those affected with the Coronavirus. There is no heightened concern regarding Joe being in Italy.”
Joe doesn’t seem too worried. The businessman recently took a trip with his cousin to the mountains of Salerno. One follower did comment that their family member was in lockdown in Milan because of the Coronavirus outbreak.

Today, my cousin took me to see the environs of Salerno on top of the 🏔, also known as Sentiero Frassati trails in Campania, Italy. It is a breathtaking view. A feeling of gratitude empowered me being up high by the 😇☁️. I believe I must be more aware of my blessings that we as humans take for granted. I want to start focusing my attention on the positives and to what is going right in my life. I believe by practicing gratitude more it will lead me to appreciate the aspects of life that are a blessing in 🇮🇹🇮🇹(new surroundings and people). #gratitude #god #mountains #drive #view #breathe #change #italy🇮🇹 #loveyourself
The season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs February 26 on Bravo. The three-part reunion will follow in March.
