Teresa and Juicy Joe. (Dave Kotinsky/Getty Images)"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice is standing by her man amid rampant rumors he has cheated on her — unless they're proven true. In a new interview with Life & Style, the mom of four professes that she does not believe the stories that her husband Joe has strayed. "No woman has come forward and said, 'Oh, I've been with Joe,'" she says. "That hasn't happened." But if it does, Giudice claims she won't stand for it and is prepared to leave him. "We would get divorced," she adds. "I could never be with a cheater. That's disgusting. And I'm sure it would be the same for him with me."
Fans of the Bravo reality show know all too well about the tension that has existed between Teresa, 40, and Joe, 42, this season. In a recent episode, both Joe's wife and his eldest daughter Gia, 11, confronted him during a family car ride to the Jersey Shore after he had been out late the night before with a bunch of women. Although Teresa seemed too stunned to say much, Gia gave her father a piece of her mind for acting like a bachelor — to which he yelled at her to stay out of his business and "shut up." Still, despite the growing suspicion, Teresa needs more than rumors and innuendo to convince her that Joe is two-timing her. "Give me proof!" she tells Life & Style. "I would want to see a sex video! I'd be like, 'Bring it on, baby, let's see it!'"
Whether or not her husband has been faithful isn't Teresa's only problem. Joe also faces prison time after he tried to acquire a driver's license using his brother's name in June 2010, an offense that could land him 10 years in jail. And if he does get locked up — Joe heads to court June 27 — his wife has a plan to make sure their four daughters (in addition to Gia, there is Gabriella, 7, Milania, 6, and Audriana, 2) are all well taken care of. A source tells Us Weekly that Teresa has been in talks with Bravo to get her own spin-off about her struggles to raise her children as a single mom with her husband in jail.

"I've heard it time and time again: The second Joe goes to jail, Teresa's getting her own show," a source tells the magazine. A friend of the reality star also adds that Teresa's role model is former "Real Housewives" star Bethenny Frankel, who has parlayed her stint on the New York franchise into a mega-brand (she sold her Skinnygirl mixed drink line for $125 million last year). "Bravo would definitely give Teresa her own show, especially after this season," says the pal. "There's so much drama."
