We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the December 4, 2019 edition of Wednesday Morning Tea.
It is no secret that family is key to the stars of Real Housewives of New Jersey. No other franchise places such an emphasis on loyalty. Joe Giudice’s daughters are living up to that example. As for Joe’s wife, Teresa Giudice? Not so much. She made it official that she and Joe will divorce if he is deported. I am sure that her decision has nothing to do with the younger man that she has been spotted holding hands with. What happened to boasting about the joys of old-school marriage, Teresa?
Joe served 41 months in prison for bankruptcy and bank fraud. His wife, Teresa, also went away
to prison to camp for nearly one year. Joe was released and taken into custody by ICE after he completed his prison term in March. For some reason, Joe never became a United States citizen, even though the rest of his family did. His appeal to stop his deportation to Italy was denied by the Board of Immigration Appeals on April 6, 2019.
We all know that many Housewife storylines play out during a single season and are never addressed again as they are resolved, ignored or forgotten. That is not the case, however, for the Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe Giudice and his legal problems. Joe was released from prison in March after serving 41 months for bank and bankruptcy fraud. And immediately following his release, he was taken into custody by ICE on immigration issues, as he never became an American citizen, despite living in the country for over 40 years.
On April 6, 2019, Joe’s appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals was denied. He is now facing deportation back to Italy if his recently filed stay with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals is also denied. All of this must be very sad and stressful for the Giudice family, no matter how you may feel about them. One member of the family, wild-child Milania Giudice, recently made a very public plea for support for her father so he can remain in the U.S. with his family-and she is even asking for help from none other than President Donald Trump.
Viewers have been Keeping Up With the Kardashians, literally, for 16 seasons-– seasons. That’s because the first family of reality television keeps delivering the dramatic goods. This includes a whole new generation of adorable Kardashians. It’s hard to believe this empire was spawned by a sex tape that featured the first among equals Kim Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend Ray J.
A tape that Kim’s genius momager Kris Jenner used to turn water into wine when she shopped around their reality show. It seems another lifetime ago. Now the youngest sibling, Kylie Jenner is a mom and a billionaire. Almost as incredibly, Kim, who never graduated from college, is studying to become a lawyer!
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.
More than anything, it’s safe to assume that Teresa Giudice wants some privacy for her family these days. Unfortunately, that’s just not going to happen. A judge declared that her husband Joe Giudice will be deported to Italy after finishing out his prison sentence in March 2019. Sure, he still has 30 days to appeal the decision, but Teresa actually tried to lighten his initial sentence before he event went in.
Aside from that one argument with NeNe Leakes, Claudia Jordan’s time on Real Housewives of Atlanta is easy to forget. After all, she was only on the show for one season. Even so, she says that she was asked to come back for more, but she still didn’t get that offer to hold a peach in the opening credits, i.e. a full-time spot as a Real Housewife.
Claudia explained why she left the show after she was offered the opportunity to be a “Friend of the Housewives” and threw some shade at her former costars.
