Teresa Giudice The Real Housewives of New Jersey - RHONJ

Is This the Real Reason Teresa Giudice Won’t to Italy? Plus, Will Joe Be Allowed Back Into the US to Visit His Family After Deportation?

It’s a been a little over a week since a judge revealed that Joe Giudice would be deported back to Italy following the completion of his prison sentence.

On October 10th, Judge John Ellington told Giudice “Based upon the law, I find you deportable and ineligible for any kind of relief. Mr. Giudice, no matter how this turns out, I wish you the best. I decided this case as a matter of law.”

The news rocked the Real Housewives of New Jersey world and left fans and the Giudice family stunned. The Giudice family is said to be “devastated by the judge’s decision” according to In Touch Weekly.

AllAboutTRH was the first to report that Teresa would NOT be leaving the US and moving her family to Italy.

“The family is absolutely devastated by this but are trying to remain as strong as possible,” a source revealed. “They have no plans to move the children to Italy.” 
Now new information, on why Teresa isn’t planning to uproot her family from their native New Jersey, has come forward.
The latest issue of Star Magazine reports that Teresa’s decision to stay put in NJ all comes down to dollars and cents.
Sources claim that Teresa doesn’t want to walk away from her main income source and the lucrative deals that come with it. Teresa reportedly makes $1 million a year for RHONJ.
In fact, sources say that Teresa is ready to cut ties with her husband instead of saying ciao to the US.
“She is talking about divorce absolutely,” reveals a close pal. “There is no way Teresa is going to uproot her life to move to Italy with Joe. He did this, why should she suffer? Unless something extraordinary happens, Joe will be deported, and in that case, Teresa is through.”
On the other hand, OK! Magazine reports that “Teresa is telling people that she’s not thinking about the future right now, but the truth is, she’s freaking out.”
Turns out Teresa feels extremely conflicted at the moment. “She’s desperate to keep the family together but hates the thought of uprooting her kids’ lives and moving to Italy. Plus, she doesn’t want to leave New Jersey – it’s her home. She isn’t sure how to deal with this mess.”
Another reason why Teresa doesn’t want to move to Italy is her father, Giacinto Gorga.
“He’s like my fifth kid,” Teresa said of her father who moved into her Towaco home after her mother’s death in March 2017.
“Teresa’s always felt regret over the fact that she lost precious time with her mom while she was in jail. She can’t bear the thought of missing out on time with her dad.”

For now, Joe Giudice and his family will do everything they can overturn the deportation ruling and have made it clear they aren’t “going to go down without a fight,” Us Weekly reports.

Since the judge’s October 10th ruling the Giudice children have been very vocal about how much they need their father. The RHONJ kids have asked for help to fight their father’s deportation.

This is one of my favorite pictures of me and my dad❤️ my father is no threat to society he is one of the most warm hearted people I know, he would never harm a soul. He puts everyone else before himself. I know who my father is and I think many of you do too. My father did his time and learned from his mistakes. Isn’t being in there supposed to make you realize your mistakes so you can become a better person? And that’s exactly what my father did. He hasn’t felt or looked this good since he was in his 30’s. We have so many plans to do as a family when he gets out. I need my father to be here. My father belongs with us and his entire family. My father came into this country when he was one years old, the United States is the only country he knows, spread the word #bringjoehome

“Teresa’s really hoping he wins and is able to stay in the country,” an OK! Magazine insider adds.

If Joe does not win his appeal, “everyone fears it won’t end well. Teresa could have a breakdown.”

Meanwhile, a New Jersey immigration attorney Edward Shulman, who does not represent Joe, tells Us Weekly that he thinks it’s unlikely that Joe will win his appeal.

“I do not think Joe can win in appeals court. A person who is convicted of fraud like this and an aggravated felony conviction is very hard to get around. Maybe there will be some nuance in the statute of the conviction, but it is unlikely,” Shulman reveals.

Shulman also reveals that if Joe loses his appeal he will be completely cut off from his four daughters Gia, 17, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 12, and Audriana, 9.

“If the immigration court of appeals denies Joe again, Joe will not be allowed back into the country, not even for a vacation. He can apply for special waivers if a family member is ill, but those are very difficult to receive. His other option is a presidential pardon, but of course, those are extremely rare too.

Adding, “Joe is not an illegal alien. He has a green card, but a green card is a privilege, not a right. If someone has been here since they were 1 day old, it does not matter if they have also committed an aggravated felony.”

Joe’s crimes may have been “white-collar” and non-violent, but Shulman says they make him deportable.

“The charge of fraud was above $10,000, which makes it an aggravated felony and that is the basis for deportation. There is no relief for Joe now. Since he has a green card and has been convicted of an aggravated felony, the law states that deportation is the result.”

Shulman says that if he represented the Giudice’s all those years ago he would have approached their case very differently and placed more of the legal burden on Teresa which could have prevented Joe from being deported.

“What I think should have happened four years ago, if I were counseling them at the time, is to have Teresa plead to the fraud offense with the amount of money and have Joe plead to the high crimes but keep the dollar amount of the fraud under 10,000,” Shulman explains. “That would have Joe serve more jail time and his plea to less money would have mitigated the aggravated felony.”

While the Giudice’s can’t go back in time, Teresa can ask for prayers and support.

Us Weekly reports that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star asked fans for prayers during an event at the Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, Connecticut over the weekend.

“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.”

Joe has until November 9th to file an appeal on  Judge Ellington’s decision.

Thoughts on the latest Teresa and Joe rumors? Is Teresa even considering moving to Italy? Do you think Joe will win his appeal? If Joe does get deported, will Teresa and Joe stay married? Sound off below!
