AceShowbiz - Teresa Giudice is looking for a man to keep her company as her husband Joe Giudice is facing potential deportation. The reality TV star reportedly plans to date a rich man while the father of her four daughters prepares to leave for Italy.
"Teresa has said that she wants to date a rich man now. She wants someone to take care of her," a source tells Radar Online. "Teresa says she needs a guy with his own money, and a lot of it. She is not going to support a guy."
The source adds, "Teresa has said she wants to find a new companion, a wealthy man who has the means to give her the lifestyle she wants and thought she had with Joe." Having basically been the breadwinner since her husband was taken into prison, the star of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" reportedly "doesn't really want to work as hard as she is working" and "wants to enjoy life with a man who can afford to do nice things with her."
The source claims that Teresa is anxious to move on with her life and expects to return to the lifestyle she had before Joe was in prison. "Teresa wants a guy who is going to shower her with jewelry, cars, trips, all of the things she hasn't had in years because Joe has been locked up," so the source dishes.
Teresa has been hit with several dating rumors while Joe was in prison and remains in ICE custody. Back in February, she was spotted holding hands with 26-year-old Blake Schreck in Miami. They were reportedly also spending time together in New York City over the summer.
Joe, meanwhile, has had his request to be released from Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody and return to his native Italy granted by judges. According to his lawyer, Joe wants to "begin working and contributing financially to his wife and four kids," while waiting for final decision on his deportation appeal. He is expected to be leaving for Italy in the coming weeks.
