Even though Real Housewives of New Jersey doesn’t return for Season 9 until November 7, there is already drama, but this time it’s away from the cameras. A judge declared that Teresa Giudice’s husband Joe Giudice will be deported to Italy after he finishes up his prison sentence in March 2019.
Usually, Andy Cohen tries to remain impartial when it comes to the Bravolebrities, but even he couldn’t help reacting to the shocking news of Joe Giudice’s deportation.
On SiriusXM’s RadioAndy, Andy admitted, “I was just stunned by this news and I’m really upset about it. The man has done his time, he will have served his sentence, Teresa served her sentence. I know there were a lot of people who believed that they were being made examples of because they were people in the public eye and now it seems so extreme to deport him. He’s done his time, they’ve paid back their debt as far as I understand, and why not sentence him to community service or something else that he could do to enrich the community instead of deporting him?”
Andy continued, “He spent his whole life here. He’s got kids. He’s got a family. He’s never lived in Italy. I’m really upset about it. My heart just really goes out to Teresa and the kids.” Those poor girls.
Andy repeated his earlier sentiments, saying, “I just think at some point, the man has done his service, his time, his penance.” He repeated, “It seems extreme to me.” He declared, “Figure out another way.”
Then Andy shared, “I realized on the way here that Teresa knows the president. Maybe she can make an appeal.” Of course he’s referring to Teresa’s time on Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump. Andy concluded, “Teresa, call your friend in the White House.” Teresa has already contacted him, but that was before he became the President of the United States.
