Another day, another Giudice drama! This time Joe Giudice, who has been cooling his heels in prison after a money fraud situation went terribly awry, has been barred from the prison’s alcohol abuse treatment program over his immigration status.
Last night Real Housewives Of New Jersey lost one of its greatest assets when Joe Giudice left for prison. Just think – all it took for the Gorgadices to mend their family feud was for Juicy to get incarcerated!
The episode begins counting down the days before Joe goes “away” for 41 months. No one feels it as deeply as Teresa Giudice, who tries to make each moment count with special activities for the girls to bond with their dad. First is a little Magnolia Bakery plug to decorate cupcakes for the birthdays Joe will miss while locked up. Also, there was glitter and we know Teresa has never been able to turn her back on an errant piece of glitter.
Teresa admits that without Joe, who is serving 41 months in Fort Dix Correctional Facility, their family feels “incomplete” and that being a single mom to 4 girls is overwhelming. “It’s hard, we are just doing the best that we can, getting through it day by day… ”
Due to her own status as an ex-con who’s on parole, Teresa Giudice had to wait a while before she was approved to visit Joe Giudice in prison. It’s been almost a month since Tre has seen her Juicy, who went “away” in March to begin serving his 41 month sentence. Luckily good things come to those who wait! Over the weekend, Teresa finally gained entry into Fort Dix!
