Teresa Giudice: Joe 'Passed Out ... Didn't Even Remember' Threatening Me Before Prison

Originally posted 09/29/2016 05:50PM

Weeks before Joe Giudice began his 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud, the reality star gave viewers a glimpse into how he was really handling the realities of leaving his family by engaging in a tense altercation with his wife, telling her to "shut the f--- up" on an episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Now, Teresa Giudice is coming to her husband's defense explaining how that argument made her feel, why Joe lashed out and how his prison sentence is affecting their relationship.

"I didn't take that to heart because that's not how Joe normally talks, he really doesn't," the 44-year-old tells PEOPLE exclusively. "You see, he passes out right after. He went to go lay down and he passed out. And when he woke up I said to him, 'Hon, why'd you say that?' And he said, 'What?' He didn't even remember what he said."
