Teresa Giudice’s history on Real Housewives of New Jersey has all the makings of a Shakespearean drama. In 2014, Teresa and her husband, Joe Giudice, plead guilty to federal fraud charges. He was sentenced to 41 months
in prison at camp, and Teresa received a sentence of 15 months. Teresa was released from prison on December 23, 2015.
Joe was transferred to ICE custody after finishing his prison stint in March. Since Joe is not a United States citizen, he was ordered to be deported to Italy. He is appealing that order in hopes of returning home to his wife and four daughters. During the Season 9 RHONJ reunion, Teresa revealed that if her husband is sent off to Italy, they are going to divorce. So much for old-school values! Teresa has been seen holding hands with another, much younger man, but her attorney has assured the world that they are only friends. Really? That seems very friendly.
While Vicki Gunvalson (probably) cried over losing her orange, Real Housewives of New Jersey OG Teresa Giudice feels very differently about being a reality TV star. Recently, the RHONJ cast member admitted that she has “never enjoyed” filming the show.
That’s hard to believe considering that she supports her four daughters filming this show. However, she has really gone through it. She argued with her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga for many seasons. Teresa denied legal problems for many years before landing in jail herself. Now, she’s waiting to see if her estranged husband Joe Giudice gets deported to Italy. She sure hasn’t had the easiest time, but overall, the show has done a lot for her.
Season 9 of Real Housewives of New Jersey was epic on so many levels. You had simmering tension between Melissa Gorga and her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice. There was outright aggression when Margaret Josephs pushed Danielle Staub’s then-husband, Marty Caffrey, into Jennifer Aydin’s swimming pool so he could cool off. And there was that girls’ trip to Cabo where Margaret hurled a glass of wine at arch-enemy Danielle, resulting in a melee. At the reunion, Teresa announced that she will be splitting with her husband, Joe Giudice, if he is deported. That is a lot to handle.
So, what does Season 10 of RHONJ have in store for us? So far, we have learned of an argument between Melissa and Jennifer at a restaurant in the Hamptons. Danielle and Margaret were also involved in a fight at Steven Dann’s store in Great Neck. Supposedly, Margaret poured water over Danielle’s head. Danielle retaliated by lighting Margaret’s purse on fire. Pretty soon, the Jersey Housewives will be banned at all restaurants and will be filming in fast-food joints. Or someplace where there is no glassware, no open flames, and the tables are bolted to the floor.
Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Dina Manzo and her then-fiancé David Cantin were the victims of a traumatic home invasion in 2017. The couple had just returned from Audriana Giudice’s first communion.
Audriana is the daughter of RHONJ stars Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe Giudice. Dina is Audriana’s godmother, and Audriana’s christening was documented on the show. It was nice to see a sweet and happy occasion with no flipping tables or screaming matches. And without anyone being tossed in a pool.
Teresa Giudice is the sole remaining OG on Real Housewives of New Jersey. She has to love having that elite status, right? After all, OG’s are dropping like flies these days. Lisa Vanderpump quit Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Vicki Gunvalson got demoted on Real Housewives of Orange County.
Given the recent shakeups in the Real Housewives universe, Teresa has to love that she is still on RHONJ after all of these years. Well, apparently, that’s not the case. Then again, who could blame her? She went to jail and her legal issues became a national news story. Her estranged husband Joe Giudice is detained by ICE waiting to find out about deportation. She feuded with her own brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga for many seasons. Now, she’s at odds with
her former henchwoman Danielle Staub for mysterious reasons. It has been far from an easy ride for the table-flipping reality TV icon.
Joe Giudice has been winning tiny victories here and there regarding his deportation appeal, but the battle is far from over. In 2014, Teresa Giudice’s husband was sentenced to 41 months in the pokey for federal fraud. Even people who do not watch reality television knew Tre was sentenced to 15 months in “camp” after pleading guilty to charges. Teresa served her time and went right back to filming. Now she is enjoying her new pool, an ALLEGED new man, and more screen time than ever on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Who says crime doesn’t pay?
The same cannot be said for Juicy Joe. In the past, Joe has said going to jail would be like a vacation. For all intents and purposes, if you find yourself married to Teresa – the pokey might actually be a respite. It could be safe to say Joe no longer feels that way. Since being released in March of this year, Joe was immediately detained in ICE custody. While Teresa travels and tries out new
boyfriends hairstyles, the four daughters she shares with Joe miss their dad terribly. The children have been very vocal about wanting their father to avoid deportation, both Miliania and Gia Giudice have made public pleas in an effort to keep Joe in the United States. Recently, another request from Joe’s attorneys has been granted. Once again, his desire to remain in the US hangs in the balance.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s husband, Joe Giudice, won a small victory while waiting to see if he will be deported to his native Italy. While he is waiting to find out the court’s final decision, he can stay in the United States but will remain in ICE custody. As you may recall, the couple plead guilty to federal fraud charges, and served staggered prison sentences so that one parent could be at home to care for their daughters.
Joe was taken by ICE after completing his prison sentence. Teresa took their four daughters to visit Joe on May 22 for Joe’s birthday. It was their first time visiting him while Juicy Joe was in ICE custody.
Season 9 of Real Housewives of New Jersey was epic on so many levels. Bridezilla Danielle Staub got married to Marty Caffrey. And then divorced him a few
minutes months later. Margaret Josephs pushed Marty into Jennifer Aydin’s pool. Teresa Giudice dealt with her husband Joe Giudice’s possible deportation by dropping a bomb at the RHONJ reunion. If her husband is deported, they will split up.
During the New Jersey ladies’ trip to Cabo last season, all the claws came out. Margaret compared Jennifer’s plump lips to “a monkey’s a**hole.” And at one crazy dinner, Danielle screamed at Margaret that if she was a better person, she would get to visit with her grandkids. Aren’t kids supposed to be off-limits? Margaret tossed a glass of wine at Danielle. So, Danielle retaliated by throwing a glass, and hitting Melissa Gorga. Melissa thought that Jennifer threw the glass at her, but tequila-monster Jennifer smashed a glass and held it up to Melissa. And Teresa somehow backed up Danielle over her sister-in-law and her best friend Dolores Catania.
