“We’d go our separate ways,” the Real Housewives of New Jersey star reportedly told her castmates at the reunion taped earlier this month, reports People.
“She didn’t really express any sadness about that,” a second source explained. “She just focused instead on the girls. It was very matter of fact.”
This declaration contradicts what Teresa previously stated at the season 8 reunion regarding Joe’s deportation.
“I mean, Italy’s a beautiful place to live,” she admitted. “I wouldn’t mind, you know, I’m just saying. Listen, whatever God has planned for me, that’s what’s going to happen. I will embrace it the best I can.”
The reality diva also disclosed that the couple’s four daughters — Gia, 18, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 12, and Audriana, 9 — would be staying in the United States with her.
“Teresa told Andy that if Joe gets deported, she’s not going,” a source on the scene told PEOPLE. “She said that she and Joe had talked about it over the phone, and that he understood.”
Joe, 46, is currently serving a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud that began in March 2016.
In October 2018, judge, John Ellington ruled Joe be deported back to his native Italy, upon his release from federal prison in March 2019.
The 46-year-old fought hard to reverse his deportation order — claiming he considers himself to be American, having spent a large part of his life in the US, and being married to an American citizen and having four children birthed in America.
As reported, the mom of four was a frequent no-show at her husband’s immigration hearings. She did not appear at her husband’s October 10, 2018 Immigration hearing — where her imprisoned husband begged the judge to stay in America with his family.
