In her mem­oir Stand­ing Strong, Teresa Gi­u­dice ad­mits she blames her hus­band, Joe, who’s now 19 months into a 41-month prison sen­tence for fraud, for land­ing them both be­hind bars. Sounds like she hasn’t for­given him yet: Life & Style has ex­clu­sively learned that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is duck­ing some of his phone calls from prison. “All Joe ever does [when he calls] is bring Teresa down and com­plain about how mis­er­able he is in prison,” a source re­veals. “So she’s been dodg­ing calls.” Teresa, 45, has been busy be­ing a sin­gle mom to daugh­ters, Gia, 16, Gabriella, 13, Mi­la­nia, 11, and Au­dri­ana, 8, and doesn’t want Joe’s neg­a­tive rants to bring her down. Be­fore her hus­band, 45, went to prison, Teresa did her own time, serv­ing 11 months be­hind bars on fraud charges. Dur­ing that time, the source says, she kept any neg­a­tive feel­ings about Joe to her­self “be­cause she needed him to be the re­spon­si­ble par­ent and take care of the kids.” But now, “she’s tak­ing care of the kids, pay­ing the bills and has it han­dled,” the source says. “The longer Joe has been away, the more Teresa has re­al­ized she doesn’t need him. The plan is to file for di­vorce from Joe be­fore he’s out of prison.”

Why isn’t Teresa pick­ing up when Joe calls home from prison? “He just isn’t the same per­son she fell in love with,” a source says.
