REAL Housewives of New Jersey star Jennifer Aydin insisted costar Teresa Giudice has "an amazing relationship" with her ex-husband Joe.
The pair split in 2019 after 20 years of marriage.
During a recent appearance on Us Weekly's Getting Real with the Housewives podcast, the 43-year-old assured RHONJ fans that Teresa, 48, and Joe, 48, have a great relationship.
Jennifer said: “They have an amazing relationship. There’s no animosity there
“They look like they have a mutual respect for each other and I feel like everything’s good.”
Following years of legal trouble, the former couple announced their plans to divorce in December 2019.
They share four daughters together: Gia, 20, Gabrielle, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11.
In the most recent season of RHONJ, Teresa notably defends Joe while in an argument with her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.
Jennifer reflected on Teresa's loyalty to her ex, stating: “This is the father of her children. We can’t negate the years that they’ve been together. I feel like out of respect for her children and out of respect for the relationship that they had, she should defend him if she feels the need to.
“I mean, she’s not going to sit here and praise Joe when he does something wrong, but if there is a situation where he deserves to be defended, I feel like it should come from Teresa. That’s, like, a no-brainer to me.”
Despite their good relationship, both Teresa and Joe have moved on and found love with other people.
The Bravo star is currently in a relationship with Luis Ruelas, while Joe is dating Daniela Fittipaldi.
Melissa also spoke about how Teresa's new relationship is impacting her, sharing: "She just definitely seems a lot happier, but happy before too and was living her best life.
“With everything that she was going through, with everything she was handling, and of course, the death of her father was, I’m sure, very devastating to her. So I feel like this meeting of Louie couldn’t have come at a better time.”
Earlier this month, Teresa gushed about her new love in a sweet Valentine's Day post.
While she claimed that Luis, 46, has shown her a "whole new world," the longtime Bravo star also thanked her late mother and father for sending her new partner so she wouldn't be "alone."
