The cover says “Their intimate dinner. Heartbreak for Teresa. Joe cheated with the nanny. The ultimate humiliation: Joe publicly flaunts his affair with the woman Teresa trusted to take care of her children.”
Incidentally, it’s basically another dumb story about how a grown man can’t sit/ stand next to a grown woman without it being considered “cheating.” But, for what it’s worth, here’s the story…
Whisperings of Teresa Giudice’s husband, Joe, and his cheating ways have run rampant since The Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered in 2009.
Now, multiple insiders reveal exclusively to Life & Style that Joe had an affair with the very woman who Teresa trusted to look after her young daughters: the nanny, Nicole Cemelli.
Joe and Nicole’s affair began soon after Teresa hired the recent college graduate to look after her four children while she was away at book signings and promotional appearances. Soon enough, Joe was romancing Nicole — even when Teresa was around, the two could barely keep their hands off of one another.
“At first, Teresa was in total denial,” a friend of the family tells Life & Style, on newsstands now. “But another time, Nicole kissed Joe on the lips when she was in the room! Eventually, enough things were brought to her attention that she finally had to do something about it.”
By the summer of 2010, Nicole no longer worked for the family but shockingly Joe is still in contact with her to this day. On April 22, the two were photographed getting close in a secluded corner booth at NYC’s Hurricane Club restaurant. When presented with the photographic proof, Teresa recognized Nicole, but she denied any wrongdoing. “That’s Joe’s old secretary, who works in the city,” she insists to Life & Style. “He was in the city that day for other business meetings and he had met up with her after, to go over some things.”
Fellow Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Jacqueline Laurita famously said during the show’s season four reunion special, “You told me…you walked in on your husband when he had someone on the desk in his office…You caught him with the secretary, babysitter.” Teresa also denied this. The “babysitter” Jacqueline was referring to, insists insiders, was indeed Nicole Cemelli. - via Life & Style Magazine.
The family already denied the allegations in the new issue, of course, but Teresa bolstered that denial with her own post on her personal blog.
I hear you’re trying to get to the bottom of the “mystery girl” Joe had drinks with in April? Here’s a simple idea: show me or Joe the picture and ask us. We could have easily told you it was one of our dear friends and a former employee of both of us that Joe was meeting to talk business. We’ve known her and her family since she was in high school. No secret. No mystery.
I’m also in business meetings and lunches and dinners with people of the opposite sex. Should I send you their photo before we go out so you’re clear on that too? Or will you continue to make up stories about everyone we meet? I have a book signing tonight in Boston–at Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard Street. Be sure to come over and photograph me with the 300 or so hot guys I’m sure will be there. I’m in a relationship with ALL of them! I’m just that busy.
Joe and I are on TV, so I get it that our lives are open for everyone and their mother to criticize. What’s unfair and completely disgusting is that you would drag every person we ever speak to into your fake stories. It’s not acceptable to falsely portray our friends, family, business associates, fans, and even acquaintances this way.
The poor girl in your photo is freaking out now, and rightfully so, because she’s getting harassing calls at her work, being stalked on the Internet, and even followed. How is this even remotely legal? Oh yeah, it’s not.
You know we have four daughters that are personally hurt every time you print these lies, but that doesn’t seem to faze you at all. Maybe being sued for defamation finally will. – via Teresa’s blog.
