The second episode of Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice’s Bravo special, ‘Teresa Checks In,’ aired last night. Teresa talked to Joe about getting “shaken down” by the guards after she had daughter Gia tweet a “thank you” to fans from her account. Joe also discussed the possibility that he could be deported to Italy after he completes his 41 month sentence in prison as well.
Teresa told Joe:
They’re so invading, like you have to bend down and cough.”
Oh. My. Goodness. Joe told the cameras:
I never thought my wife would be getting the shake down. That definitely makes me upset, thinking my poor wife has to go through this bulls— in there.”
I guess so, especially since he’s the one who had her sign the documents- and commit fraud- in the first place! However, Teresa is said to be trying to “emerge more balanced,” according to her attorney, so she’s doing things like practicing yoga. She has plenty of time to reflect! Hopefully Teresa will emerge from prison ready to make some different choices.
Another issue Joe discussed during ‘Teresa Checks In’ was the threat of deportation that he’s facing after he completes his prison sentence.
Since he’s not a US citizen, he could be facing deportation once he’s released from prison. During a meeting with their attorney, Joe was asked if Teresa and the girls would move to Italy with him if it came to that. Joe replied:
Of course she would.”
I consider myself an American.”
He said he doesn’t know anything about Italy besides the food. OMG. Why in the world didn’t he take care of the issue of his citizenship earlier? He had to have known he wasn’t a citizen from the time he turned 18. I know it’s a bureaucratic hassle, but it seems like something you’d want taken care of! Joe sounds like he’s trying to keep a positive frame of mind. He’ll begin his prison sentence after Teresa is released in late December of this year.
I’m ready to get it over with and that’s it, and move on with my life.”
I can understand that. With a 41 month sentence, I’d guess he’s looking at serving about 36 months or so. That’s THREE YEARS. I don’t know what I’d be doing if I was in his shoes; I’d be a complete wreck.
