In a special sneak peek of the second installment of Watch What Happens Live: One-On-One with Teresa and Joe Giudice, the prison-bound patriarch of the New Jersey family comes clean about his battle with the bottle.
“I might have a little problem, yeah — I’m not gonna lie,” said Joe, who’s due to serve 41 months behind bars, likely beginning upon his wife Teresa’s 2016 release from her 15-month stint behind bars.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Joe’s legal team requested the embattled reality star be sent to rehab for an alcohol addiction, but prosecutors scoffed at the notion, with a source telling us that Judge Esther Salas said she’d “recommend a suitable facility for him to undergo an alcohol program” as determined by prison officials.
In the hearing, Joe’s lawyer Miles Feinstein said he’s “noticed” his client’s boozing, as when Joe “comes into my office, he smells of alcohol.”
The second half looks to have other bombshell moments, including one sequence where Andy Cohen recalls how the family said in court papers that the Real Housewives of New Jersey was scripted, and asks Teresa if she was instructed by the show’s producers during her infamous table-flipping incident. Teresa, in the preview, shoots Cohen a look as if to say, “Of course.”
Cohen also asks Teresa if she harbors any resentment toward Joe “for putting you in this position.”
