In an episode that aired this season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Joe Giudice was caught on camera taking a phone call from someone viewers and other cast mates assumed to be his girlfriend. While Joe was apologetic at the reunion about referring to his wife, Teresa Giudice, as his “bitch wife” while on this phone call, he still denied having an affair. Not only that, but Teresa has spent the last few months defending her husband as well. But now even more details are emerging about his alleged mistress.

An anonymous friend of Joe’s (also nameless) mistress told the National Enquirer (via Radar Online) that he has been seeing a 25-year-old New Jersey woman, who is a student at Caldwell College. Her friend describes her as a sexy young lady with “curves galore.”

“For a short, fat guy, Joe managed to get a real beauty,” the friend said of the mistress, whose parents confirmed that their daughter knows Joe from work. “Chances are good that if Joe was just a regular guy who didn’t appear on a hit TV show, she would never have looked his way. She probably likes the fame he has, thanks to his wife.”

Although this source doesn’t exactly sound like a really great friend to this mystery mistress, (seriously, who talks that way about their friends?) this isn’t the first rumor about Joe stepping out. Just a few days ago, a source (and actually a named source too, imagine that) told Radar Online that they saw Joe leave a casino with a woman after spending time there together in the early hours of the morning.

Other sources told the National Enquirer that they have seen Joe and his mistress in a New Jersey bar called Iron Bar.

“Their behavior was highly inappropriate, especially for a married man being out late at night with such a young woman,” a bartender said. “They came in as part of a small group, but they only had eyes for each other and got very touchy-feely.”

We hope for Teresa and her daughters’ sake that this isn’t true, but we wouldn’t be shocked if it was. You know the old saying: if it walks like an ape and it talks like an ape, it’s probably an ape.
