But last month fans learned that for Teresa spending her life in front of the cameras hasn’t been easy. In fact, Teresa admitted that she has rarely enjoyed her time on RHONJ.
“It’s always challenging for me, unfortunately. It’s like, everybody else has smooth sailing, has a great time on the show. For me, it’s always hard,” she told Us Weekly in July. “I haven’t enjoyed being on the show. Not as of yet, 10 years on. Not enjoyed one season yet. I can’t wait, maybe Season 11 I’ll enjoy.”
While this revelation may seem shocking to even the biggest RHONJ fan it doesn’t come as a surprise to Andy Cohen.
“I’m not surprised. I mean look at what’s happened to her during her life [on the show]. I think she would agree that it’s been kind of the best of times and the worst of times,” Andy revealed during an appearance on the Jerry O Show. “She’s a New York Times bestselling author. Her kids have grown up to be marvelous young women. But look at what’s happened to her husband; she went to jail. She’s had real high highs — and low lows. She really resented Melissa [Gorga] for coming on the show, bringing a lot of family business and family drama in front of the cameras. She didn’t love that. That’s not exactly a news flash that she said that, to me.”
However, Teresa has made it clear she’s not leaving RHONJ anytime soon and says fans will get to know her even better during season 10.
“You’re going to get to know me even better this season because it’s hard for me to open up. I think that’s the problem that everyone thinks that I’m so tough,” she said. “I do open up this season, which is good.”
Meanwhile, Radar Online reports that the U.S. Attorney General has shut down Joe Giudice’s deportation appeal and has demanded he be deported immediately.
On August 14th, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division Joseph H. Hunt submitted a 40-page document detailing why Joe should be deported. This comes after Joe submitted a brief which claimed that his crimes were not an aggravated felony because Wells Fargo was not the victim since they made loans that “amounted to consumer fraud.”
Hunt is also urging the Third Circuit court to shut down Joe’s attempts at an appeal.
“For the foregoing reasons, the Court should deny the petition for review,” Hunt wrote in the documents.
The Third Circuit is expected to make a decision in Joe’s case in the next few months.
