Teresa Giudice’s Daughters Are Suffering!
Joe Giudice’s legal drama has taken a toll on his entire family, especially his 14-year-old daughter, Milania Giudice.
Teresa Giudice opened up about her daughters struggles over Joe Giudice’s legal woes while attending BravoCon on Saturday. Teresa is mom to daughters, Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10, with Joe Giudice.
“It’s difficult. Joe and I were really strict with Gia. But then when the whole legal thing happened, I got a little soft because I was all by myself. Not that I spoiled them, but I tried to make up for the pain of Joe not being there,”. “My girls had to grow up quick because of everything we’ve been through.”
Teresa Giudice, 47, said Milania went to see a therapist last year after having trouble in school and losing more than 40 pounds.
“She saw a therapist last year. She had trouble in school. Now, she’s doing well in school. She lost over 40 pounds,” she shared.
Teresa Giudice and her girls recently went to see Joe in Italy, where he’s currently awaiting the final decision in his deportation battle. But the reunion was more emotionally draining on the girls than Teresa thought, she tells the reporter that she assumed, “the girls would be fine when we came back from Italy” to visit Joe, “but they’re really missing Joe still. I try to compensate. I jump over hoops for them because of everything that we’re going through. But they are amazing kids.”
In October, a ruling was made that Joe Giudice would have to leave the country after he completed his jail sentence for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud.
The Giudice’s family reunion in Italy was filmed by Bravo cameras and will air in season 10.
“You guys will see that play out. I can’t give a lot away, but I’m happy for him. I’m happy that he’s free. It was a very emotional trip. I cried a lot,” Teresa said. “Milania was so happy that the six of us were together, eating together. … He didn’t have to sit in ICE for 7 months, but he did. He fought. His daughters saw that he fought.”
