Teresa Giudice Pays Tribute to Husband With Utterly Ridiculous Photo

by at .  Updated at .

Teresa Giudice has broken her silence in regard to her husband's major, life-altering legal troubles.

And she's done it in uproarious and absurd fashion.

As you likely know by now, Joe Giudice was ordered to return to Italy last week upon the completion of his ongoing jail stint.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey personality is serving time for financial fraud and will be deported in a few months because he never actually became a U.S. citizen.

This is a common legal decision in the case of an immigrant who commits a felony.

To be frank, it's just not one you see play out very often for white collar crime.

It's also not one you see play out every often in front of the entire celebrity gossip world; folks who have been invested in Joe and Teresa since they first appeared on Bravo.

In the wake of Joe's sentencing, there has been plenty of speculation regarding Teresa's reaction.

Is she angry over it? Sad over it? Actually relieved because now she has an excuse to divorce Joe?

We haven't been able to say for certain because Teresa hasn't spoken out about the legal ruling.

Until now, that is.

Sort of.

The veteran reality star - who spent close to a year in prison herself for this same bankruptcy-related crime - took to Instagram over the weekend and shared the above meme.

It features the Statue of Liberty with her face in her hands, presumably crying over the fate of Joe Giudice.

How moving and profound, right?

The Statue of Liberty is a symbol of immigration in the United States and Teresa captioned the Instagram image with a series of praying hand emojis.

If God is listening, Teresa really wants Him to get involved here.

Oldest daughter Gia, meanwhile, has made multiple pleas for her father to get a break here.

She thinks Joe is being unfairly targeted because he's Italian, which, well... it's a take, we suppose.

Gia, who is only 17 and who we do feel horribly for in light of this decision, has also shared the throwback photo above.

She has included with it an emotional caption that reads:

This is one of my favorite pictures of me and my dad. my father is no threat to society he is one of the most warm hearted people I know, he would never harm a soul.

He puts everyone else before himself.

Does he, though?

Gia continued:

I know who my father is and I think many of you do too. My father did his time and learned from his mistakes.

Isn’t being in there supposed to make you realize your mistakes so you can become a better person?

And that’s exactly what my father did. He hasn’t felt or looked this good since he was in his 30’s.

We have so many plans to do as a family when he gets out. I need my father to be here.

Gia continued her impassioned plea:

My father belongs with us and his entire family.

My father came into this country when he was one years old, the United States is the only country he knows, spread the word #bringjoehome.

Joe, who has lived in America since he was a child but never obtained American citizenship, will get out of prison this spring.

And immigrants can be deported from the United States if they are convicted of “a crime of moral turpitude” or an “aggravated felony,” according to U.S. law.

He and Teresa share four kids: daughters Gia, 17, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 9.

This absolutely sucks for them.
