A family can only take so much.
In an interview published on Thursday, Real Housewives star Joe Giudice tells E! News that wife Teresa Giudice's jail sentence has been extremely challenging for everyone…
Especially their four daughters Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and the youngest Audriana, who Giudice says is having the hardest time of them all.

Her absence is especially felt "when the girls see other moms and their friends [together]."
Although the 43-year-old keeps in contact with the Skinny Italian author through emails and prison visits, it just simply isn't the same.
The reality TV star confesses :
"You're emailing, you're talking here and there, but it's not like she's here."
Juicy Joe misses Tre "every day, every minute. I always wish she was here."
However, the Italian is doing the best he can without his spouse.
"I'm glad I was able to keep the girls together, and do what we have to do to get by until she [Teresa] gets home."
And once all the legal drama is over, he is looking forward to starting a new chapter.
"The last two years have been rough, but I'm glad it's behind us… Start a new life. Start all over again and put everything behind you and just hope it all stays nice."
We applaud Joe for his honesty, and we wish the Giudice family the best during this difficult time.
