Joe Giudice wanted to make sure his girls were safe before heading behind bars to serve his 41-month prison sentence.

"That was one of the biggest things that weighed on him. He was nervous about us being home alone."

As you're probably aware, Juicy Joe is in the slammer for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud — the same crimes Teresa just served nearly a year for.
The RHONJ star described:
"Before he left he got a heavy-duty security system added to the one that we already had, so I'm totally safe and he made sure of that. It's like Fort Knox."
Although it's difficult to adjust to life without her other half around, Miz Guidice is staying positive for their daughters Gia, 15, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 10, and Audriana, 6:
"We all miss Joe tremendously. But I just try to remind them, 'Now that mommy is home, didn't it go by fast? That's how it's going to be for daddy too.'"
2019 will be here before ya know it, Ter!
