It has been an action-packed few days for Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe Giudice. In 2014, Joe and his wife Teresa Giudice pleaded guilty to fraud and both served time away
in prison at camp. After Joe completed his 41-month sentence in March of 2018, he was taken into ICE custody. Joe is not a citizen of the United States. An immigration judge ruled that Joe should be deported to Italy.
He filed an appeal, and his lawyer also filed an appeal bond, which asked that Joe be allowed to return to his family in New Jersey while awaiting the final decision on his deportation. That request was denied, so Joe asked to be sent to Italy to await the final decision. Joe left for Italy on October 11, and his next court date is set for November.
Now that Joe is back in Italy, his daughters are thrilled that he is finally a free man. Gia Giudice posted a photo to Instagram of a much-thinner Joe with his brother Peter Giudice in Italy. Joe’s eldest daughter wrote “so happy your together right now…enjoy see you in a few weeks daddy.”
Teresa took to her Instagram to post a picture of the Statue of Liberty covering her face. Well, that was certainly a heartfelt and personal message to her husband. What does that even mean?
Teresa has made no secret of the fact that if Joe is deported, their marriage will be over. But could a trip to Italy turn into a big pay day for Teresa? According to RadarOnline, a source claims that “Teresa is getting a huge paycheck to take the girls to Italy and film the reunion with Joe. She’s going the first week in November with the girls, and the RHONJ cameras too.” The insider added, “Teresa is getting around six figures to film these extra scenes with Joe in Italy.” I wonder how Joe feels about this televised reunion?
HollywoodLife reported that Teresa and her daughters are happy that Joe is finally out of ICE custody. “Teresa is relieved Joe is finally free and they know what’s happening. She and the family know the chances of him returning to the states is very slim, but Teresa knows the girls can now go visit him anywhere in the world except here,” a source said. “The girls were all together celebrating with their mom when Joe was officially freed and really can’t wait to see their dad. It’s a huge stress and weight off of the entire family’s shoulders to have him out of there.”

In another article RadarOnline reported that Teresa shouldn’t expect a warm welcome when she goes to see her husband in Italy. Joe’s mother, Filomena Giudice and his brother, Peter, prepared a house in Italy for Joe to live in. The fact that Teresa was out partying with friends the night after Joe left ICE custody angered Joe’s family.
Joe’s family was furious about the photos of Teresa holding hands with 26-year-old realtor, and friend, Blake Schreck. Of course, their relationship is supposedly platonic. A source told RadarOnline that “Joe’s mom and brother have told him that Teresa should not be allowed to see him in Italy. They have talked to him about the cheating claims, and how she hasn’t respected him at all since he was locked up.”

It sounds like Joe’s family isn’t in a forgiving mood when it comes to Teresa. “They do not like Teresa at all, and they don’t think she should come to Italy when she hardly ever went to prison to see him,” the insider commented. Teresa’s frosty relations with her husband’s family was on full display during Joe’s September 11 hearing in court. The two groups never spoke and sat on opposite sides of the court room.
It sounds like this family reunion is going to be drama-filled when Teresa and her four daughters arrive in Italy.
