Teresa Giudice isn’t going above and beyond to help stop her husband Joe Giudice’s deportation.
“Teresa is busy living her life and nothing will change once Joe goes to ICE except for the place she and the girls will go to visit him,” a source tells HollywoodLife.
Joe was handed over to ICE following his release from prison on March 14, 2019. Joe is currently awaiting a decision on his appeal that would ultimately dictate if he stays in the United States or is deported to Italy.
For now, Joe’s case is in limbo, which means he will remain in ICE custody until his appeal is reviewed. Joe’s appeal could take up to a year to be reviewed and unless a court releases Joe he will remain in custody until a decision is made.
“Teresa hasn’t done anything herself to get Joe released,” the source said. “She truly believes he put him and their entire family in this mess, to begin with.”
However, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star isn’t ignoring the bigger issue at hand – her and Joe’s marriage.
“Teresa met with divorce attorneys a few months ago, but not again recently. She’s getting information,” the source revealed.
Last month Teresa revealed that she and Joe would go their separate ways if was deported. The RHONJ star also said she would not move her kids to Italy.
“I mean, unless my kids say, ‘Mommy, I want to move to Italy. Gia’s going to college next year; I haven’t spoken to Milania or Audriana about it, we haven’t gotten there yet; Gabriella already voiced her opinion to me. She was like, ‘That would be so hard for me, Mommy.’ She doesn’t speak the language. She’s like, ‘That would kill me even more.’”
Adding that her four daughters, Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 10, have “been through so much already.”
“I’m not doing a long-distance relationship. I’m not doing it. You know, I want somebody with me every day. I know exactly what happens. You know, I’m sure he’ll be with other women. It happens. We do the long-distance thing, it’s not going to work. I’d be like, ‘Bye, bye,’”Teresa revealed at the RHONJ season 9 reunion.
“Teresa is fully aware of everything going on and it’s very important to her that the girls’ lives remain normal,” the source explained. “She’s doing her absolute best to shield them, especially the youngest one Audriana, from what’s actually going on. Teresa only lets the girls visit Joe on the weekends when it doesn’t disrupt their activities.”
In fact, the source reveals that Teresa believes that Joe will most likely be deported to Italy. It turns out
“If Joe, in fact, does get deported, which Teresa believes will most likely happen, she will be supportive of the girls visiting and will take them,” the source revealed. “Realistically, they won’t be going more than once or twice a year during the times where they don’t have school.”
Because of that Teresa hopes that Joe can get himself out this legal mess. “Teresa knows Joe is doing everything to fight this and truly does hope he doesn’t get deported for the sake of the girls,” the source added. “Her heart is breaking for her daughters.”
If you think about it, it’s not shocking to hear that Teresa isn’t helping Joe fight his deportation since she’s previously revealed how “angry” she is with him.
“Of course I’m angry with him. I went to jail. I went to jail. Yeah, of course, I’m angry,” Teresa explained to Andy Cohen, at RHONJ season 9 reunion. But it isn’t just prison that Teresa is peeved about she is also upset about losing a year with her mother, Antonia Gorga, who passed away in March 2017. “I also didn’t lose my mom at that time. Andy, I have a small family. I only have my brother, my mother and my father, and my daughters. That’s my family. I’m angry that I came home [in March 2016] and 8 months later, I lost my mom.”
