Teresa Giudice Throws Husband Joe Under The Bus!
Teresa Giudice, 46, has been on a press tour slamming her jailed husband, Joe Giudice.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey fraudster is laying it on thick in a new interview and blames Joe for screwing up their finances, losing her deceased mother, sending them both to prison and now his deportation back to Italy.
“Of course I’m very angry,’ Teresa said of her husband in an interview with People. ‘I’m just angry like a lot of things. I wish my husband would have crossed every T, dotted every I.”
Teresa Giudice talks about how her mother’s passing in March affected her life.
“There was also another person involved and nothing happened to that person, which is very sad. There’s a lot of scenarios. I lost my mom. I’m angry about that. You know? I lost time with my mom, because I was away. There’s a lot. I lost time with my daughters while I was away. Children need their mom.”
The reality TV fraudster was released from prison on December 23, 2015 after serving 11-and-a-half months after pleading guilty to multiple offenses that included bankruptcy fraud.
Joe also pled guilty to multiple counts of fraud, including hiding assets and failing to pay taxes, and is still serving a 3-year prison sentence.
“He left when Adriana was 6. She’s 9 now. Yeah. It’s two and a half years. I mean it’s going to be three years,’ the reality star explained. ‘He’s lost three years with his children.”
The mom of four says she did encourage her husband Joe to file for citizenship at one point, and even tried to work on the paperwork herself.
“When I married him, I didn’t know. I remember I tried to make him, I tried to fill out the paperwork,” the Bravo star said.
“It was never on my radar. It’s not like I married an immigrant and I’m like, “Oh my God, I have to make him an American citizen.” Never thought of that at all,” she said.
For now,Teresa is trying to stay strong for the sake of their daughters.
“My four daughters, they’re my main priority. So if I crumble up, it’s not going to be good for them, you know? I have… to keep everything going as normal as possible for my four daughters.”
Joe, 46, began serving a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud in March 2016. He will be deported to Italy upon his release in 2019.
