Star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice, is dealing with a lot as she awaits her husband, Joe Giudice’s, deportation appeal. Teresa’s family has been very supportive during this difficult time. They are currently filming next season of the RHONJ. Recently Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga, and her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, have been opening up about the situation. It’s like the saying goes, ‘blood is thicker than water.’
According to Extra, Melissa said, “I feel like she is probably more stressed out than she has been just because there is a lot of pressure right now because he got switched over to ICE.” When Joe was released he immediately went into ICE custody. Melissa explained, “It feels sadder than it has been the past three years. It’s getting very real right now… I’m not gonna lie, we are probably the saddest we all have ever been right now.”
Teresa is leaning on her brother Joe a lot right now. Melissa shared, “She spends a lot of time with her brother. They are on the phone 24/7, that’s who she is leaning on, that’s the man in her life right now. She and her brother are really close right now, which is great.”
Joe has recently stated that Teresa is putting up “a good front.” He also said that he would help her find a new man if Joe gets deported. According to Us Weekly, Joe said, “She’s waiting for her husband and we’ll see what happens. And if that doesn’t happen, I’m sure she’ll be on the market.” When asked if he would help his sister find a new man, he replied “definitely.” He shared, “You gotta help her out. She’ll be 47 in May. That’s pretty sad. It sucks!”
Joe also stated that his sister is still going to keep her daughters in America, regardless of the deportation verdict. Joe said, “If he’s deported, she’s not going to go to Italy. She’s not going to move her children. It’s just that there’s nothing to do in Italy. There’s no jobs. The best you can do is work in a restaurant or work in a gas station. It’s very difficult in Italy, or work at tourist spots. So I believe she’s making the right decision for her and for her girls.”
Teresa and Joe have been talking a lot, even while he’s away. Her brother Joe explained, “Believe it or not, he could call as many times as he wants. It’s crazy. I mean, if he wants to call 30 times a day, he can. So they talk a lot. They haven’t seen him yet but I know they’re planning to go.”
He added, “Joe’s in a tough spot right now. He got released, ICE took him over, and he’s miserable. He’s in a really bad spot. He’s locked up in a jail cell with bars. The other facility that he was at, he wasn’t in a jail cell. So he’s having a very, very hard time, and he really wants to get out.”
Teresa is Standing Strong through this all. Joe shared, “Teresa’s put up a good front, but our relationship is very tight right now and I know she breaks down to me. She just has to keep it strong for those for little girls. The girls are having it rough also. They’re really struggling. It’s just very, very hard. The family is going through a very tough time right now.”
Hopefully this situation is resolved soon. I’m hoping for the best for this family!
