The last few years have been pretty dramatic for the Giudices: First Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa went to prison, then her husband Joe went to prison, then Joe was deported ... and now the couple is separating. That's according to sources who spoke to outlets including People and E! News. Teresa and the couple's four daughters visited Joe in Italy last month and they talked about the future, People's source says: "They agreed that each had to move on. They are doing so amicably and very slowly. ... They have been very friendly with one another and are very supportive of each other’s happiness. They still love one another, but as Teresa told Andy Cohen on the WWHL special, they are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Neither is interested in a long distance relationship."

The source adds that Joe, 49, has been on some dates but Teresa, 47, has been too busy, though Page Six notes that after the aforementioned TV special in which she told Cohen she and Joe would likely separate if he were to be permanently deported, she was spotted holding hands with 26-year-old Blake Schreck (she insisted at the time they were just friends). Teresa and Joe were childhood sweethearts and wed in 1999, but their "marriage is completely over," a source told E! previously. "Teresa is in no rush to file for divorce, but their relationship is done." Per People's source, "there are no plans for divorce" right now and the couple is focused on the well-being of their daughters, ages 10 to 18. (More Teresa Giudice stories.)
