According to E! News, which first confirmed the reality TV project, the special will air later this year.

Back in April, there were speculations that Joe, along with daughters Gia, Milania, Gabriella and Audriana, were in talks of doing a spin-off  about their new life while Teresa is in prison. 

Teresa, who is currently serving a 15-month prison sentence after pleading guilty to fraud charges, has thanked fans for their support throughout her ordeal.

“Thank you for your outpouring of support and for standing by me through this most difficult time,” Teresa’s account tweeted on June 25. “Love love love you all!”

Teresa has also been in contact with Bravo’s Andy Cohen. “I can confirm she’s now communicating with him via email. He was added to her approved email list over the weekend and they’ve exchanged correspondence,” Teresa’s attorney James J. Leonard Jr. told E! News.

Joe is expected to serve time when Teresa is released.
