Teresa Giudice Denies Husband Is Leaving Her: 'We're Together and Happy!'

EXCLUSIVE: The latest issue of In Touch Weekly has 'Fame Destroyed My Family' splashed across its cover with 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star Teresa Giudice, her four kids and her husb... wait, where's Joe? That's right, according to the magazine he's "leaving" them over fights about "money, booze and jealousy." So is her marriage really on the rocks? Why not go to the source: Teresa.
"Of course not!" she tells me exclusively. "Joe and I were just in Miami together for our birthdays, and we're in San Diego together right now for my 'Fabulicious' book tour. I taped 'Ellen' today. Love her!"
Check out a pic of Teresa and Joe on the beach in Miami over the weekend.
As for In Touch's story about her "shocking split," Teresa reminds me that "you're not supposed to judge a magazine by its cover."
"Read the article," she insisted. "We're together and very happy! And check out the pictures of me, Joe, my brother and Melissa inside ... regardless of what she says, we really did all get along."
As you may have gleaned from watching the show, Teresa and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga no longer get along and the tension has put a major strain on her relationship with brother Joe. In the first episode of the season, family members fight at a christening.
Sources close to Teresa tell me that Bravo purposefully played up the family drama aspect of the show to draw out ratings after disappointing results from their two newest 'Housewives' (DC and Miami).
"They needed to pull out all the stops for Jersey!" my insider tells me. "Teressa has always been the star of that show so it makes sense that all these rumors are flying about her and her family. Don't worry, her relationship is stronger than any 'reality' show."
Teresa's 'Ellen' appearance will air June 1.
