RHONJ star Teresa Giudice appeared at an event at the Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, Connecticut on Saturday, October 20. Giudice did acknowledge what she is currently going through with the deportation of her husband, Joe Giudice.
“Teresa said to please pray for me and my family,” an eyewitness at the event tells US Weekly. “She really hopes Joe is out of jail to see [their daughter] Gia graduate. She said she cannot wait to see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
As we reported, Joe will be appealing the judge’s decision, after he was ordered to report back to his Native Italy when he’s finished his prison sentence.
Despite the circumstances, the eyewitness said Teresa “was in really good spirits and made the crowd laugh several times” at the East Coast Vs. West Coast Real Housewives Brunch, which also included Tamra Judge, Kelly Dodd, and Dorinda Medley.
After speaking on Joe’s deportation, Teresa also revealed how she was scouted for The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“She explained that Dina [Manzo] and Jacqueline [Laurita] were asked to recommend beautiful women for the show. Dina recommended Teresa and there was a joke about if Teresa did the show, her husband would go to jail,” the source told the mag. “Teresa said she does not know why Caroline [Manzo] did the show.”
“She said she f**ken shouldn’t have,” the source continued. “She said it is Jacqueline’s fault for her doing the show.”
“Teresa said she suckered Joe into doing the show and now that he is away, he has watched himself and says he was an asshole,” the insider added.
Giudice also addressed the falling out of her friendship with Caroline, Jacqueline and cousin Kathy Wakile.
“She said she is sad she let them into her house, to be betrayed by them,” the source said. “Fame and money will do that to family. She said you never go against family.”
