The Real Housewives of New Jersey are going to be back on TV next month! A lot of the season is set to cover the tough situations and circumstances, that Teresa Giudice is going through with her husband, Joe Giudice. Joe recently left ICE and went to Italy with his family. Teresa and their four daughters are going to visit during the first week of November. The couple appealed Joe’s deportation verdict and are continuing to fight this ongoing deportation battle. They are getting love from the fellow ladies of the Garden State. Dolores Catania is standing by her good friend Teresa!
For starters, Dolores is in awe of Joe’s weight loss after serving time. She even joked that she should maybe go to the same camp he did. Dolores recently told Us Weekly, “I think I want to go to the same camp he did. He looks so great! He looks like Mike ‘The Situation.’ They look alike. He just spent almost four years in jail. You don’t come out looking the same, that’s for sure.” Dolores added that Joe has “been doing karate for many years and he’s a big fan of Jean-Claude Van Damme.”
Joe recently completed a 41-month prison sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Fort Dix, New Jersey. Fitness experts have estimated that Joe has lost almost 70 pounds. Joe and Teresa’s daughter, Gia Giudice, has been sharing photos of her dad doing martial arts while he’s in Italy. She’s also shared photos of the girls Facetiming with their father.
The family’s attorney, James Leonard, told Us Weekly: “He spoke to Teresa and Gia from the plane and he is extremely happy to be released, more than words can describe. We are still fighting and it is his desire to return home to the United States to be reunited with his family.”
Dolores recently opened up about what is in store for Joe, and she noted that she’s been in contact with her good friend Teresa. Dolores speculated that maybe Joe will become “mayor of the town in Italy that he’s from.” She added, she is “sure he’ll find his footing.”
Dolores also said that if the appeal isn’t in Joe and Teresa’s favor, it’s “no secret” that they would have to divorce. Dolores said, “She said this in front of 2.5 million people, that she would not follow him there. The jury for me is still out on whether or not that spark is still there when they see each other. However, they haven’t yet. So, I can’t speak on that.” Dolores thinks that there could be a spark between them when they are reunited, and it could be just like old times.
Teresa and Joe wed in 1999. Teresa is set to go to Italy to see Joe with her daughters very soon. Their attorney has stated that they are not filing for divorce, despite reports that state otherwise. They are all hoping that Joe can come back home to the United States.
I’m wishing Teresa, Joe and their families all the best. They have been through a lot. I’m glad that Dolores is such a good friend to Teresa, especially during these tough times. I hope that Joe is allowed back to America so that he can be with his family. I truly hope that Teresa and Joe are able to stay together with their daughters in their home in NJ!
