Ever since Teresa Giudice began her federal prison sentence January 5, Joe has recognized just how important she was and is to the family dynamics.

“When you have four kids, you have to stay strong,” Joe explained to Extra! “Her being away definitely makes me appreciate her way more, a lot more, and you know everything she did.”
