Now that Teresa Giudice has completed her prison sentence, the countdown has begun for Joe. In a few weeks, he will turn himself in to begin his portion of the fraud sentence, 41-months, for which Joe and Teresa were convicted. And if that weren’t bad enough for the reality couple, Joe realizes that upon completion, deportation is a possibility.
“Anything can happen, you know? There is nothing in life that is certain,” Joe said in a tearful interview with ET. “We will deal with that when I get out.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star offered her formula for facing reality, “We’re just taking it day by day.”
During Teresa’s prison sentence, her younger girls were told she was away working on a book. How much do the children know about Joe’s situation? Joe said his kids know “everything.”
“They go on computers, they know everything,” He added, “I mean, my daughter Milania tells me, ‘You’re going away for a lot more months than mommy.'”
Amazingly, Joe, 43, has managed to find a silver lining in his prison sentence.
“I haven’t stopped drinking in I don’t know how long, so I could definitely use it just for that, you know?” he admitted. “[It’s] probably going to be a good thing for me, health wise anyway.”
What will Teresa miss most when Joe’s gone?
“I’m going to miss sleeping with him at night and cuddling with him.” Teresa added, “I’m going to miss the passion, and I can’t say any more than that.” The world says, thank you!
Italian-born Giudice, who is not a U.S. citizen, was warned about his immigration status by the judge in his identity fraud case, “Virtual certainty that you will be deported because of either this charge or the federal charge,” the Passaic County Judge scolded.
