Teresa Giudice may be a Real Housewife of New Jersey, but the question remains:
Is she really, actually broken up over the pending deportation of her law-breaking husband, Joe?
We have quite a few reasons to think this will be a cause for Teresa's to celebrate, not commiserate.
This question is once again relevant because Joe received some bad news last Friday:
After two weeks of deliberation, an immigration judge denied the reality star's request to be removed from the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Joe had been hoping to at least return home and be with his family while he waits to hear if his latest deportation appeal has been granted or not.
The former Bravo personality was ordered to be deported to his native Italy in October of 2018 and was transferred into ICE custody in March after completing a 41-month prison sentence for fraud.
Despite having lived in the United States since he was a child, Joe never became an American citizen and he admitted to committing a felony, hence why his deportation is very likely to take place.
Love the guy or really, really, REALLY hate him for being such an entitled wanker, this development is at least very sad because Joe and Teresa share four daughters:
Gia, 18, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 10.
The probability remains strong that their dad will soon be living in another country.
Teresa, however? She doesn't appear all that broken up about being single once again.
“Joe’s family believes that Teresa is going to file for divorce no matter what,” a source close to the situation recently told Radar Online, stating that Teresa is simply done with the marriage and adding:
“Teresa is going to file for divorce from Joe regardless of what the outcome is. Joe’s family knows this.
"Everyone knows this. She has tasted her freedom and she isn’t going to return to him."
In an update to this relationship, Radar now also reports that Teresa has stopped wearing her wedding ring.
She was in court this past Friday to learn the outcome of Joe's latest hearing, heading out afterward for a fan event in Maryland... without said wedding ring on her finger.
Speaking to Us Weekly, Teresa told the tabloid that she isn't in a "good place" at the moment, adding:
"It’s a sad time with my husband and everything so we’re going to try and work it out as best we can. The most important thing is our four daughters, so I’m hoping Joe is able to stay in the United States."
Teresa acknowledges that she and Joe "are going through a really difficult time right now,” ending her brief interview on a hopeful note:
"I had all these businesses and everything went crashing down.
"But, look, I picked myself right back up, and if anybody else is going through hard times, don’t worry about it. You will get through it. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I do believe that.
"You’ve got to be positive!"
Got that, ladies?
If you and your husband both spent months in jail for financial fraud and you still rake in millions per year by starring on a reality show and you've been cheating on your man anyway... relax!
You'll come out of this okay.
