Joe Giudice is the first to admit that he has made a lot of mistakes. But he doesn't regret marrying Teresa.
In fact, despite their still very recent official separation, Joe is still openly thirsting and singing her praises.
The exiled Real Housewives of New Jersey star took to Instagram to share this image of his still-technically-wife, Teresa.
"Tune in tonight at 10:00pmEST @HSN," Joe captioned the pic, "to see my hot momma Teresa."
He continued: "LIVE on the Beauty Report with @amymorrisonhsn!"
"She will reveal to you all her secret on her perfect [TV] ready eyebrows with official launch of Bella Brow."
"Love my wife," the father of four raved in a subsequent comment that included - count 'em - four red heart emojis.
"Always working," he praised.
"Great women inspirational," Joe rambled, seemingly losing his train of thought amid the thirst. "Stay focused."
He also included a thumbs up emoji. Sometimes, you're so thirsty that your sentences don't make sense. We've all been there.
When someone challenged Joe, claiming that Teresa surely does not use these products herself, he sidestepped the comment.
"She is mother of my four beautiful girls," Joe pointed out.
"Love is always there," he expressed.
Joe then concluded: "Family first."
We're not entirely sure what he's talking about, but it's very positive from Joe, who reunited with his four beautiful daughters.
Gia, who just turned 19 a few days ago, flew out to Italy with her sisters Gabriella, 15, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 10.
On Christmas Eve, Joe shared a vdieo of his daughters arriving at the airport to greet him. It was a heartwarming reunion.
But all good things must come to an end, unfortunately, and the girls had to return to the U.S. in time for school to start up.
The girls getting their educations is precisely why Teresa cannot see Joe any time soon. At least, it's part of the reason.
See, Teresa works during December, so she could not accompany her daughters on their transatlantic flight to Italy and Joe.
And for the next couple of months, her girls will be in school.
Teresa isn't going to pull them out of school to see Joe, and she's not going to abandon her daughters to see him herself.
This is the new reality for the embattled family.
As Teresa and a number of her family members and acquaintances have acknowledged, this is all so much harder on the girls.
Teresa is an adult and can handle losing her husband to this deportation. Joe is an adult and will survive, as well.
Gia may be technically an "adult" but, let's be real, she's a teenage girl. Her sisters are all minors.
This is traumatic for them. Their family has been torn asunder by unfinished paperwork and catastrophically bad timing.
Yes, the white nationalists directing immigration policy are not currently focused upon Italian-Americans, the timing sucks.
Immigration is one of the hottest topics in politics now, which means that Teresa and Joe's pleas for leniency were to no avail.
They can continue to hold out hope, of course.
Perhaps the political winds will shift sooner rather than later. We all hope that America's current political nightmare will end.
It may be that the majority of those deported under the current administration are invited to return, and ICE will be abolished.
But right now, that's just a hope and a dream.
For now, Joe is just lucky that his deportation to Italy was a tough blow to his marriage and family, but not a death sentence.
