Teresa Giudice's husband Joe is going away with a bang.
Just two days before the 43-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star checks into the Federal Correction Institution in Fort Dix, New Jersey, RadarOnline.com has learned that Joe was the honor guest of a special and intimate party.
As Radar reported, the party took place on the evening of March 21.
"Only Joe's closest friends and family were invited," a source said.
While cameras have been rolling in recent weeks capturing all of the drama surrounding Joe's departure and Teresa's return, Monday night's event was different.
Multiple sources confirmed to Radar that Bravo didn't film Joe's going away party.
But the filming break won't last long as several sources said that filming will resume for the rest of the week.
"Next week is the last week of filming," one source said.
As Radar previously reported, Teresa, 43, and Joe returned on Monday from a weekend getaway to Virginia.
According to a source, the short trip also was not captured for the hit reality show.
"They just made it into a special weekend especially since Joe is leaving," the source said.
Joe is expected to begin his 41-month prison sentence for fraud on March 23.
Fort Dix — where Joe will be living over the next several years — is considered a low security prison and is located about two hours from the Giudice family home.
