Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice spoke out for the first time since their prison sentences were handed down on Thursday. The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars sat down with Andy Cohen for a special edition of Watch What Happens Live. And let me summarize it for you: Teresa thinks she’s a victim in this, y’all! A VICTIM. Nope, she hasn’t learned a single lesson.
Andy opens the show trying to keep the twinkle out of his eye recapping the Giudices’ federal prison sentences: Joe will sit for 41 months and Teresa for 15 months. He says that he wishes he were seeing them under happier circumstances and the mood is grim, as expected. Andy starts off asking how they’re doing. Teresa says she feels like she’s numb and things feel surreal. “All I keep thinking about is my daughters.”
The drama surrounding the Giudice’s legal matters continues to unfold. Joe Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison, followed by two years of supervised release. Teresa Giudice landed herself 15 months. During the course of the Giudice’s fraud indictment it emerged that despite living in the US for the majority of his life, and being married to a US citizen, Joe isn’t one himself, and therefore faces deportation after he serves his time.
Joe’s immigration attorney, Jerard Gonzalez, says that proceedings for a possible deportation will not begin until after Joe’s sentence is completed, however experts connected to ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) said that officials could decide to expedite proceedings at any time – even while the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is still behind bars!
“They could come pick him up tomorrow. I doubt they would do that,” says immigration attorney Edward Shulma (who is not connected to Joe’s case).“They want them to do most of the time.”
Dina is ready to move on from the Florida trip too. She kept her blog short and sweet this week, poking fun at Amber Marchesefor her victim complex and asking fans to send positive and warm thoughts to Joe and Teresa Giudice.

Albie and Chris moved back home, to film save money for their black water empire, and Lauren never left. In a recent interview, Caroline said she’s looking forward to sharing a different side of herself and her family with viewers. Let the wacky hijinks begin!
