In early September, PEOPLE confirmed that the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars had finalized their divorce after 20 years of marriage.
"Joe and Teresa are in an amazing place and are very supportive of each other," a source said at the time. "They still love each other, they just aren't in love with each other."
In a recent interview with E! News, Joe revealed that he doesn't have harsh feelings about his breakup with Teresa.
"I mean, listen, we talk every day, but we've already moved on. What are you going to do? It's been a while. If I lived there it would be a different story, but it's not me. I'm here over there, eight hours away in Italy, full of Italian women, "said the father of four.
Teresa and Joe married in 1999 and were married for 20 years before announcing their split in December 2019.

PEOPLE brought the news that they were breaking up. At the time, a source close to the couple said the two had not yet investigated the divorce case and instead focused on their children. But in the third part of the RHONJ reunion in season 10, Teresa's brother Joe Gorga and colleagues encouraged her to hurry up, fearing that if she waited too long, Joe would seek support from the wife.
The former couple had a prenup, Teresa said, with a no-cheat clause that would invalidate them should either of them get lost. (Rumors have long circulated that Teresa and Joe were unfaithful during their time together, but both have denied this).

Their divorce marked the end of turbulent years for the reality stars.
In July 2013, both were charged with federal fraud. Everyone has been accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans prior to RHONJ's debut and then hiding their enhanced wealth in a bankruptcy filing. Joe was also accused of failing to file tax returns between 2004 and 2008.
You pleaded guilty to postal, transfer and bankruptcy fraud in October 2014. In addition to parole and fines, Teresa was sentenced to 15 months in prison while Joe was sentenced to 41 months.
Teresa's tenure began on January 5, 2015. She was released from federal prison in December 2015 after serving 11 months in prison.
He began his sentence for the same crimes in March 2016 and was released three years later. Months earlier, a court ordered Joe's deportation because he was born in Italy and had never received American citizenship since childhood in the United States.
While appealing the decision, Joe moved into immigration and customs control custody at the Clinton County Correctional Center in Pennsylvania. He stayed there until October 2019 when he moved to Italy to make money for his family.

Two appeals against the judgment have been denied, while a third final appeal is pending. The likelihood of that death occurring is slim, Giudice family lawyer James J. Leonard Jr. said on a December 2019 episode of RHONJ. "He's in trouble," Leonard said. "I think the odds are against Joe right now ... Immigration is the hottest topic on the planet and I think Joe is caught in the crossfire."
Despite the distance, his daughters traveled to visit the family patriarch in Italy.
In November, Joe paid tribute to Milania and Gia, who had both returned home from a trip to Italy earlier this month. "Miss tthem [sic] so much already?" Wrote Joe next to a photo of the trio taking in some sights in Rome together.
