We’re officially less than a month away from Season 10 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and the Bravo gods have finally smiled down on us with a sneak peek of the premiere.
Jackie Goldschneider shared a preview of the episode this week, and looks like the drama between the Jersey girls picks up right where it left off.
During Joe Giudice‘s stint in prison for fraud, we did not hear much about him. Sure, wife Teresa Giudice talked about Joe once in a while on the Real Housewives of New Jersey or in the media, but his time in prison was mostly low-key. As it is meant to be! However, since Joe’s release from prison in March, we have been given frequent updates on the status of his ongoing deportation case. Joe’s decision to not become a U.S. citizen backfired, resulting in deportation proceedings commencing against him.
In April, Joe’s appeal to ICE to stay in the country was denied, meaning he would be deported. Later that month, he achieved a legal victory when the courts agreed to look at his case again. In May, Joe was given approval to remain in the U.S. while waiting for a decision regarding his deportation. The legal wrangling continued on over the summer, until Joe finally requested to be allowed to return to Italy to await the decision on his case. Now, there is an update in the ongoing legal saga.
There have been a lot of news stories about Joe Giudice lately, which is interesting since there have been no actual updates in his deportation case. He is still trying to get this appeal and he’s still waiting it out in an ICE detention center. However, he was featured on the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 trailer, via speakerphone, of course.
He shares the news with
estranged wife Teresa Giudice about his deportation, which the whole world already knew about. He also tells Teresa that he never actually wanted to get married, which was hopefully just a mean comment said in the midst of anger. Nevertheless, there was one super random news story about Joe. According to reports he wants to get into the super stable career of MMA fighting. That just had to be a rumor right. Well, apparently it is true. Teresa confirmed it herself. And I’m not gonna lie, my first reaction was shock that these two are actually in touch. She just seems.. ummm… busy these days.
Even though he hasn’t appeared on Real Housewives of New Jersey in years, Joe Giudice has the strongest storyline on the show. He is currently stuck in an ICE detention center, waiting to find out if he will be deported to Italy. That’s a lot more compelling than watching someone promote a clothing boutique.
This is after he finished up his 41-month prison stint in March. And during his wife Teresa Giudice’s various hand-holding stints with a twenty-something-year-old guy named Blake Schreck. How interesting! The RHONJ Season 10 trailer indicates that Joe’s deportation and the cheating allegations against Teresa will be major storylines. The season looks downright explosive and I can’t wait.
After a long wait, we finally have our first glance at Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10. Unlike some Real Housewives shows that sweep real life drama under the rug (cough, cough, Beverly Hills), RHONJ addresses all the headlines. Obviously, Joe Giudice’s deportation looms over the season and the Giudice family. Additionally, Teresa Giudice finally has to address those cheating rumors on camera. She was spotted holding hands with “friend” Blake Schreck so many times that it’s about time she answers for it. At another point in the trailer, Joe admits that he never actually wanted to get married. Aww, how sweet.
In other Giudice news, we get to see Teresa’s daughter Gia Giudice go to prom with Dolores Catania’s son Frankie Catania. In the trailer, we even see her say, “He’s so hot” as he walked down the runway during Melissa Gorga’s Envy fashion show. The audience agrees, Gia. As per usual, Teresa is carrying the season on her back. But, the other ladies have some things going on as well.
There’s been yet another twist in Joe Giudice‘s ongoing deportation case.
In a shocking development, the Real Housewives of New Jersey husband has formally asked the judge presiding over his case to send him back to Italy while he awaits the final ruling on the pending case.
Technically speaking, Real Housewives of New Jersey stopped filming for Season 10. Well, most of the cast members did. However, the
legal drama never stops in the Garden State. There’s a new headline about Joe Giudice’s deportation setbacks every other day.
Did you really think that Bravo was going to pass up the chance
to exploit this situation to share these raw moments with the RHONJ fans? Of course not. They just brought cameras back in. And now we know why the Season 10 trailer still has not dropped, despite Andy Cohen previously teasing that fans should be on the lookout around Labor Day. Well, Andy, it’s practically October and fans have not seen a single frame of footage. But, at least this makes sense now. Although, I’m still annoyed.
Ciao, America! Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe Giudice is not having much luck in the courtroom. And his case has taken another hit as a judge as ruled against him. Again.
It appears as though Joe’s stay in detention while he awaits his immigration appeal is going to be a little longer than he wanted. Teresa Giuidce might be breathing a huge sigh of relief.
