June 15 (UPI) -- Teresa Giudice denied a new report this week that claims she's cheating on imprisoned husband Joe Giudice.

The 45-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star's lawyer told E! News Teresa has been faithful to Joe as he serves his prison sentence.

"It's salacious, it's juicy, it's great gossip and it's simply not true," attorney James Leonard, Jr., said of the rumors, in an interview published Wednesday.

"The truth is Teresa is in love with her husband. She's busy caring for her four daughters, her father who now lives with her, and she's working on her new book, Standing Strong, which comes out this fall," he added.

Us Weekly reported Wednesday that Teresa has "embarked on a romance" with a New Jersey businessman and "hasn't visited Joe in prison" for months. Teresa's co-star Kim DePaola supported the claim.

"They've been pretty cozy I'm going to say in the last five months," DePaola told the magazine. "I think Teresa has every right to go out and find somebody else. She should leave Joe."

Teresa and Joe were both sentenced to prison in 2014 for fraud, but were allowed to serve separately due to their four children. Teresa completed her sentence in December 2015, while Joe began his in March 2016.

"I can't wait to him to come home and he can't wait to come home, so obviously we're doing something right," the star told E! News in October ahead of her 17th wedding anniversary.
