Former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” personality Kim DePaola shared her thoughts about Teresa Giudice’s relationship with her ex-husband, Joe Giudice, during a September 2022 episode of the “Behind the Velvet Rope” podcast. The fashion designer claimed that Joe Giudice had numerous affairs throughout his marriage to his ex-wife. She then shared that she believed he was a better parent than the mother of his children. DePaola asserted that the RHONJ star travels too much to be attentive to her 13-year-old daughter, Audriana Giudice. 

“He was a much better father to those children than she is a mother and I am going to leave it at that. Much better father to those kids. Listen, when is she home? You have a 13-year-old daughter, you’ve been gone for a month and a half, going here and there, and all of the sudden now you’re doing ‘Dancing with the Stars,'” stated DePaola. 

She went on to say that she believed the mother of four often left her home prior to getting married to Luis “Louie” Ruelas in August 2022. She also mentioned that Giudice’s brother, Joe Gorga, and his wife, Melissa Gorga, did not attend her nuptials. 

“When are you home? Even before you got married, I don’t care where she goes or what she’s doing, it’s not my business. I traveled a lot too but who’s home with these kids? Unfortunately, she doesn’t have a mother or father, none of her family were at her wedding, not one person from her family. What does that say about her?” asked the former RHONJ personality. 

DePaola also criticized her former co-star for allowing her daughters, Gia Giudice and Gabriella Giudice, to travel to Europe in August 2022. 

“The 21-year-old and the 18-year-old traveled around Europe by themselves, sorry not in this day and age. As a mother, again, no way,” asserted the fashion designer.
