Teresa tells Andy, "I'm sure he'll be with other women."
"I want somebody with me every day, and I know exactly what happens," she goes on to explain. "I'm sure he'll be with other women. It happens."
She adds, "You do the long-distance thing, it's not going to work. I'd be like, 'Bye, bye.'"
"This man is the one and only love of your life," Andy Cohen says to Teresa in the clip. "But what you're saying is, you would split up? That's what you're saying?"
"Unless my kids say, 'Mommy, I want to move to Italy,'" Teresa replies. "Gia's going to college next year; I haven't spoken to Milania or Audriana about it, we haven't gotten there yet; and Gabriella already voiced her opinion to me. She was like, 'That would be so hard for me, Mommy.' She doesn't speak the language. She's like, 'That would kill me even more.' It's like starting a whole new life, and they've been through so much already."
There's no doubt the family -- daughters Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 10 -- have been through a lot. An immigration court judge ruled back in October that Joe -- who is currently serving a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud -- will be deported to Italy after he completes his sentence in 2019. (Joe's attorneys have filed an appeal, but there hasn't been any update on a possible outcome.) Joe began his sentence after Teresa served 11 months in prison on similar charges.
Teresa and Joe have been married since 1999.
"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" Season 9 reunion concludes Wednesday at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
