Blood is thicker than water!
Teresa Giudice is going through a lot right now, but her brother Joe Gorga is stepping up to the plate! Joe recently spoke about his sister and the situation on Fox 5’s Good Day New York. Joe said that she’s not going to move her children to Italy if her husband, Joe Giudice, does get deported after being released from prison this month. Joe told Fox, “If he goes to Italy, they’re not going. Is she prepared to divorce Joe? She has no choice. She has to be prepared.”
Joe is set to complete his 41-month prison sentence for tax fraud on Thursday, March 14th. He faces deportation to Italy, where he was born, upon his release from FCI Allenwood in Pennsylvania. Joe said, “He is getting out, but ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is picking him up.” Joe said that he is going to be there for his sister and his four nieces. Joe explained, “Anything she needs, I’m going to be here for her. That’s my only sister. I have only one sister in life.”
Joe is not a fan of reality TV. Not only does his sister star on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but his wife, Melissa Gorga has appeared on the RHONJ since 2009. According to US Weekly, Joe called reality TV “the devil.” He explained, “It’s the devil. You’re accepting the devil in your life. Bottom line: It just doesn’t make a lot of people happy. It changes who you are.”
Teresa had confirmed during the RHONJ season 9 reunion, that she plans to leave Joe if he is deported, “Unless my kids say, ‘Mommy, I want to move to Italy.'”
According to Hollywood Life, Joe told them he’s stepping up for his sister and nieces. Joe said, “Oh yeah, I’m their uncle. Anything they need, I’m there for them.” Joe went on to say that he thinks Teresa’s girls won’t be able to get to Italy very often for visits. Joe said, “If anything, at the most, they can go twice a year if they are lucky. I mean it’s tough. It’s not just like going to Florida. It’s far. It’s tough, but I’m sure they are going to do as much as they can.” The girls are staying strong, just like Teresa is ‘Standing Strong.’ Joe stated, “The girls are taking it day by day. Obviously they need their daddy. They miss him. They are young little girls, and they are just growing. They are evolving. They need their daddy. It is very hard. They hear all the stuff out in the news. It is not good for them, but they are handing on. They are tough girls.”
This is all heartbreaking! I’m praying for the best for them all. It’s a very sad situation and I know they are staying strong.
