Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is opening up about what her life will be like if her husband Joe Giudice is deported back to his native country of Italy.
Joe has been fighting to stay in the United States since a judge ordered in October 2018 that he be deported back to Italy following the completion of his 41-month prison sentence; he was released in March. Giudice appealed the judge’s decision shortly thereafter, but it was denied in April. Last week, a federal judge granted The Real Housewives of New Jersey husband more time to submit his opening brief to the U.S. Court of Appeals as he fights his deportation order. He is currently at a facility in Pennsylvania. Teresa has previously addressed if she would move her and her family to Italy with Joe should that be the final decision.
“I hope that’s not a decision I have to make, but to pick up my children and just move to another country, I don’t think that would be good for my children,” Teresa told Andy at last years RHONJ reunion. “So, I mean, so, no, I probably wouldn’t.”
In a new video, Teresa opened up about how her life will change if Joe has to move back to Italy.
“If he gets deported, he’ll never be able to go to their graduation[s], celebrate their birthdays, anything,” The Real Housewives of New Jersey star shared. “He’s going to be missing out on so much. The girls adore their father and no child should have to go through what my daughters are going through. They should have their daddy here.”
“When you’re a mom and your children are hurting, it just kills you so much,” Teresa adds. “If I could take any of this pain away from them, I wish I could.”
