So in case you haven't heard, Joe Giudice was charged with like 3 zillion money fraud related indictments. Which is about how much money he also owes because of bankruptcy debts related to falsifying income. And when he's done there he owes the IRS big too. Long story short, homeboy is in biiig trouble!
Among the revelations that emerged about the Real Housewives of New Jersey star during the court proceedings was that, despite being married to Teresa Giudice for like 15 years, Joe never bothered to become a U.S. citizen. Which means he's still an Italian citizen, since he was born there. And since he's not a U.S. citizen, as a felon or a convicted offender he could be deported!
We've been wondering how likely it was that ol' Juicy could be shipped off to Italy and lucky us, we got the opportunity to speak to an immigration attorney who gave us some insight into how cases such as these generally work.

The ladies are currently in the middle of filming their sixth season and a Reality Tea reader spotted Mynique cruising around Savannah, GA with NeNe Leakes and other cast mates!
Mynique is happily married to former Atlanta Falcons player Chuck Smith and allegedly replaces Kim Zolciak in the baller's wife role. Mynique apparently came to the attention of the producers through Ms. Leakes, who also reportedly introduced them to Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore!
Mynique's husband told Access Atlanta he has know NeNe for "24 years growing up in Athens" and that NeNe and Mynique, a mother of three, have been friends for 12 years. She also knows She By SheBroke from her hubby's football days. Chuck was quick to point out that Mynique isn't confirmed as a castmember just yet and hasn't "officially" joined the show.
It's time for the weekly Monday and Tuesday night ratings round up!
Once againLove & Hip Hop Atlanta dominated Monday night! 4.192 million people tuned in, which means once again the show's ratings are rising. Next week features more reunion and with news that Stevie J and Joseline are indeed going through with this whole wedding thing, I'm thinking this smells… spinoff!
Real Housewives of Orange County had its season finale this week. Featuring mama drama and Slade problems amid a wonderland of faux-snow, the ladies went out with a bang pulling in 2.386 million viewers – a big jump from last week. Next week is the reunion and the previews look, well, they look dreadfully brutal.
"Of course, the Gorgas will step up, as will [cousins] Rich and Kathy Wakile, especially since the kids are involved," a family insider revealed to Perez Hilton.
If that happens, Bravo better get those cameras rolling. I can only imagine Melissa Gorga wrestling with Milania as she tries to plaster down that hair and turn her into a sweet little angel with coordinated outfits. Milania doesn't do charm school, bitch.
Oh Bethenny Frankel, if only… if only you hadn't staged that big ol' reality TV wedding and spinoff then maybe your very public divorce to Jason Hoppy wouldn't be so brutal!
With the couple battling in court over custody of their daughter Bryn and custody of their recently renovated apartment, Bethenny describes the divorce process as a daily struggle. "It's been hard," she admits to Life & Style. “It’s been difficult to stay sane.”
One may argue that Bethenny has never been sane – part of her charm? – but the divorce process is putting her closer to the brink than ever! To escape she's been vacationing (and possibly canoodling) with a billionaire and putting all her focus on her new talk show, Bethenny.
Bravo's surprising hitBelow Deck is taking us inside the world of luxury yacht charters. Despite making me insanely jealous of the guests, I feel nothing but pity for the crew trapped together and forced to cater to every whim of the charter guests.
And it's enough to make anyone crazy. Clearly. The biggest drama on board so far concerns Kat Held, her love of al-al-al-al-cohol, and her hate of boss Adrienne Gang!
“She is absolutely the villain of this show” Kat declares of Adrienne.
And Kat is not stopping there! “I found Adrienne to be two-faced,” she explains to In Touch Weekly. “She says she comes across as professional. She was very unprofessional."
