Even though we’re only one episode in, it hasn’t been an easy start to the Real Housewives of New Jersey season for Teresa Giudice.

For reasons that still aren’t completely clear, Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita have started to distance themselves from her, and now Life & Style is reporting that her marriage to Joe Giudice will take a dark turn later this season — culminating in Joe threatening to leave his wife!

An insider reveals details from an upcoming episode, saying, “When she [Teresa] complains about fighting with her brother, Joe tells her, ‘I don’t want to hear about it anymore. When I say something, you f***ing listen and shut up ... Try to get me around your family, just try it; I’ll end up leaving you.”

Despite the loaded threat, Teresa says there was a logical explanation for it. “It was a very difficult time for us when we were filming the show,” she says. “We were both frustrated and reacting out of emotion and exhaustion.”

Teresa also assures fans that she and Joe have since moved forward, and are now in a much better place. “Joe and I have a very solid marriage,” she says.

We’re glad Teresa and her hubby have worked past their issues, but it sounds like that argument is going to be a difficult one to watch.
