The family of six did share some sweet moments on the screen, but much of it remains overshadowed by their several scandals.

The pair's relationship was never the same upon Joe's release. The businessman was ordered to be deported back to his native Italy, and amid the chaos, Teresa had already decided to split from her daughters' father.
