Joe Giudice: In Denial About Being Deported?!

As we reported earlier this week, there’s a very good chance that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice will be deported after he’s released from prison.

In fact, it’s looking more and more like a foregone conclusion.

Pretty much everyone has accepted the fact that Juicy Joe will likely be shipped back to Italy as soon as he’s finished serving his four-year prison sentence.

Everyone, that is, except for Joe himself.

Yes, as you probably already know, Giudice is currently behind bars on felony fraud and tax evasion charges.

Since he never bothered to become a US citizen after emigrating here, Joe is likely to be booted back to the Boot after he’s through during his time

Unlike the imaginary brown boogeymen certain politicians want you to live in fear of, Joe actually moved to the US and promptly went about the business of committing felonies.

Governments generally aren’t fond of that sort of behavior, which is why Joe will likely be handed a one-way ticket to Florence the day he leaves prison. 

According to Radar Online, Joe is already “in deportation proceedings,” despite that fact that he’s still in custody.

“ICE has lodged a detainer, and he is in removal proceedings,” a source tells the site.

Apparently, this will all come as quite a shock to Joe, who’s convinced he’ll be heading back to Jersey after his release:

“Joe is convinced that he is not getting deported,” says a different insider.

“He just says that it isn’t going to happen.”

The source adds:

“Either he is in denial or he knows something that no one else does, but he does not believe it will happen.”

Yeah, we’re gonna go with the former option on that one.

Hilariously, it seems ICE is so eager to send Joe back to the land of popes and pasta that they might not even wait until he completes his sentence.

“If he is ordered deported while in custody, he will be removed from the U.S.,” says the insider.

Of course, the big question now is — if Joe gets deported, will Teresa Giudice go with him?

Teresa has been pretty non-committal in her responses to that particular query, so the safe bet is that she’ll be staying put in the U.S. of A.

“I mean, Italy’s a beautiful place to live,” she said in a recent interview.

“I wouldn’t mind, you know, I’m just saying. Listen, whatever God has planned for me, that’s what’s going to happen. I will embrace it the best I can.”

Yeah, those aren’t the words of a woman who’s eager to uproot her life and move across an ocean.

Teresa has four young daughters; she makes a lucrative living in the US that she can’t make anywhere else; and she needs the money more than ever thanks to her multi-million dollar debt to the government.

In other words, Joe might want to get ready to arrivederci to his long-suffering wife.


Joe Giudice: Yup, He’s Getting Deported!

The United States immigration debate is about to hit home for Teresa Giudice.


Meaning what, exactly? Scroll down to find out…

As has been previously detailed on The Hollywood Gossip, Joe Giudice is currently in jail.

He’s serving a lengthy prison sentence for his role in a bankruptcy fraud scam that previously landed wife Teresa behind bars.

But while the controversial Real Housewives of New Jersey was set free after just about a year in the slammer, and immediately given a new contract by Bravo to star once again in this franchise…

… her law-breaking husband will apparently not enjoy such perks upon his eventual release.

Indeed, a few months after we wrote about how Teresa is concerned that Joe will soon be deported from the country, a Radar Online report confirms this is the exact plan.

And its source is none other than the United States government.

You see, Joe (real name: Giuseppe) is not an American citizen. He’s Italian.

Having defied the laws that govern the country in which he’s been a guest, Giudice is “in deportation proceedings while he’s in custody,” an ICE spokesperson told Radar, adding of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement department:

“ICE has lodged a detainer, and he is in removal proceedings.”

Joe is scheduled to be released in March of 2019.

He and his wife pleaded guilty in 2016 to charges that they attempt to defraud the government by lying about their assets, shortly after they claimed they were officially broke.

The spokesman in this case says Joe may actually serve the remainder of his sentence abroad.

“If he is ordered deported while in custody, he will be removed from the U.S.,” the spokesperson continued.

Earlier this year, Teresa said she “wouldn’t mind” moving to Italy if her husband gets deported. There certainly are worse places to live, after all.

“I mean, Italy’s a beautiful place to live,” Teresa said on last season’s Real Housewives reunion, adding on stage:

“I wouldn’t mind, you know, I’m just saying. Listen, whatever God has planned for me, that’s what’s going to happen. I will embrace it the best I can.”

Let’s face it, though: This ain’t gonna happen.

Giudice makes a living in the U.S. her reality show contract and various appearances; we can’t fathom she leaves that behind.

We especially can’t fathom she does so for a man who has been accused of cheating on her.

There have been plenty of rumors that the Giudices are going to divorce because Joe wasn’t loyal to Teresa.

Joe and Teresa have often put on a brave public face, but there has been chatter for years that there’s trouble at home.

Therefore, with one half of this couple perhaps being thrown out of the country entirely, it wouldn’t surprise us one bit of the other half used that as an opportunity to split from him once and for all.

Stay tuned.


Teresa Giudice: I’m Scared Joe Will Get Deported! I Wanna Stay Here!

Things have been better for Teresa Giudice. She served her time in prison. Her husband is now serving his sentence.

Also, The Real Housewives of New Jersey may be facing cancellation … and some say that she’s a big part of what is tanking the brand.

To make matters worse, she’s reportedly terrified that Joe will get out of prison only to be deported. If he is, will she go with him?

Bankruptcy is no fun, but bankruptcy fraud is worse. At least, that’s what our court system says.

They sentenced both Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe Giudice, to prison. For the sake of the children, the court very wisely allowed Teresa to serve her (shorter) sentence first, followed by her husband. 

If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime, or so they say. But it turns out that the prison sentences may just be the start of the Giudice family’s troubles.

RadarOnline reports that Teresa Giudice fears that Joe will be sent to Italy, because he’s not actually an American citizen.

“Teresa is terrified Joe will be deported upon his release in less than two years.”

Growing up, many of us always assumed that marrying an American citizen granted automatic citizenship unless the union was found to be fraudulent. The reality is much more complex.

Apparently, any sense of peace that the public has perceived from Teresa has been a facade.

“She’s keeping good attitude in public and good happy face.”

Happy isn’t really the mood that a lot of people associate with the infamous table-flipping Housewife, but … sure.

“But lawyers have told her it’s not an easy task to win because of the felony charge — something he knew when the accepted plea deal.”

Basically, they’re going to have an immigration fight on their hands when he finishes his sentence.

Meanwhile, Joe reportedly has some fears of his own.

“Joe is terrified that she and the kids won’t come with him if he’s deported.”

Anybody else’s first thought: Well why would they?

Teresa’s joked about Italy being beautiful anyway (it really is), but vacationing somewhere is very different from living in a different culture, immersed in another language.

Besides, Teresa might not exactly be motivated to pack up her entire life for Joe.

“Teresa said she still hasn’t forgiven him for this whole mess!”

The fact of the matter is that no relationship lasts forever. You either break up or you die.

And there have been some indicators, including cheating rumors, that suggest that Teresa and Joe’s union won’t end in death.

“Teresa and Joe’s marriage is not as it once was. They’re both changed people.”

That happens over time. Especially when something dramatic, like both serving prison time, happens.

“Both of them have grown so if he must go Teresa doesn’t think she’s going with him. At least not how she feels today.”

Honestly, Teresa has to think of more than just herself.

Together, the couple has four children: Gia, Gabriella, Milania (an awkward name to have these days), and Audriana.

Does she really want her children to live in Italy? Or does she want for them to live their birthright as American citizens?

Joe might have to go to Italy, but he doesn’t need to drag his children there with him.


Teresa Giudice: Vacationing With a Lover?! Openly Prepping for Divorce?!

While Teresa Giudice spent her 11 months in prison, it was reported numerous times that Joe Giudice didn’t exactly keep his hands to himself.

Now that Joe’s taking his turn behind bars for a couple of years, some say that it’s Teresa’s turn to cheat. Others say that it’s okay, because she’s getting a divorce from Joe anyway.

A report says that Teresa’s no longer keeping things with her lover under wraps — that she’s openly vacationing with him. How soon is she getting divorced?

They say that if you can’t do the time, you shouldn’t do the crime.

They also say that no one is above the law.

While the latter has yet to be demonstrated for Presidents, it’s definitely true that starring on The Real Housewives of New Jersey doesn’t make you above being dragged into court and sentenced to prison.

Years before Countess Luann de Lesseps was arrested for kicking a police officer, Teresa Giudice became a Real Housewife of the Big House.

(Side note: we would be very intrigued by a television series by that name)

The judge was kind enough to, for the sake of the Giudice children, sentence Teresa and her husband, Joe, to serve non-concurrent sentences.

While Teresa was locked away — she ended up serving only 11 of her 15 months — Joe was with the couples’ children.

And, reportedly, he was with other women who were not his daughters.

By which we mean that he was allegedly cheating on Teresa Giudice left and right.

Teresa said that she didn’t believe those rumors but …

What are we to make of this photo that she shared over the weekend?

Teresa posted this photo of herself with Loren B. La Forge-Kyriakoulis at dinner, captioning it:

“Dinner with a great friend lots of laughs @laforgekyriakoulis # webothlovefood #greekfood”

Now, that might be a totally innocuous social media post.

(Teresa’s actually been uncharacteristically quiet on social media, lately)

But La Forge is a divorce attorney. Is Teresa posting a photo with a friend … or a hint that she’s gearing up to leave Joe?

To top it all off, RadarOnline reports that not only is Teresa cheating on Joe, she recently took her secret lover on vacation.

“Teresa went to Cancun for the holidays with her boyfriend,” a source reported to them.

And apparently they’ve reached a place in their (alleged) relationship where she’s fine having this mystery guy around her family.

“Her dad was even there, so she’s hardly hiding it anymore!”

Is this the case? If so, it sounds like she’s gearing up to let Joe rot behind bars.

Honestly? We’re not necessarily convinced that she’s cheating on Joe. They have a long, complicated relationship, but not even her frenemy Danielle Staub believes that Teresa’s cheating.

(And not, we think, just because Teresa Giudice apologized in a recent episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey)

If Teresa’s dinner with La Forge was really about divorce, then it may be that Teresa’s gearing up to leave Joe … for reasons other than a lover of her own.

For one thing? Joe is an Italian immigrant. He’s not a US citizen, and may end up getting deported when his prison sentence ends. She may be preparing for that drama now.

Or, again, she may have just been out to dinner with a friend. We don’t know.


Teresa and Joe Giudice: Getting DIVORCED Over Cheating Allegations?!

Currently, Joe Giudice is serving a four-year prison sentence for bankruptcy fraud.

Back in 2015, his wife, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, served 11 months behind bars on similar charges.

But while absence often makes the heart grow fonder, it seems back-to-back prison sentences are wreaking havoc on the Giudices and their relationship.

Of course, it certainly doesn't help that Joe and Teresa have both been accused of cheating while the other was locked up.

Now it seems this country song of a marriage may finally be coming to an end thanks to some surprising accusations from Teresa's biggest rival:

1. Happier Times

While it often seems that the Giudices’ marriage has been one long rough patch, those who know the couple best say there was a time when they packed on the PDA nonstop.

2. Going Down Together

Teresa Giudice: Sofia Vergara Should Be Nicer Since She’s an Immigrant!

Earlier this month, NeNe Leakes went up on stage and told a heckler that she hoped that she gets raped. It was neither a good thing to say nor a good career move.

Well, there must be something awful in the air that's making Real Housewives go up on stage and stay stupid, offensive things. This time, the perpetrator is Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice.

Teresa Giudice … being unkind? Difficult to imagine, we know. As you'll see in the video below, the subject of her ire is none other than actress Sofia Vergara.

Teresa giudice instagram pose

Teresa Giudice is getting blasted right now for some inflammatory, offensive comments that she made on stage for a panel discussion titled: "Gettin' Real With The Housewives."

Teresa, perhaps best known for flipping tables and for serving time in prison, was asked about her celebrity encounters.

The best … and the worst.

Teresa was quick to point the finger at Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara.

She describes Sofia as a "b–ch," saying that she stepped in front of her and captured the spotlight.

Oh, and Teresa also commented that Sofia should be nicer, because she's an immigrant.

Sofia vergara at the globes

Obviously, this is offensive, potentially on multiple levels.

Let's start with how it's potentially unfair — Teresa seems to be describing Sofia's entire personality based upon a single encounter in which the two women were photographed together.

But … what's really grabbing people's attention is the outright xenophobia and potential racism.

The suggestions that immigrants in particular should be nice or good-natured is appalling.

Sure, everyone should be nice. 

Suggesting that a particular class of people are obligated to be nice … has all sorts of nasty implications and really shows that you don't consider them to be equals.

While the folks over at TMZ who first shared this video were quick to point out the xenophobia, we think that Teresa is specifically motivated by racism.

Do you know why we think that this is racism and not more garden variety xenophobia?

Because Teresa Giudice's husband, Joe Giudice, is an immigrant.


The dude's in prison now, and it's even possible that Joe Giudice will be deported after he finishes serving his sentence.

Joe was born in Italy, which makes him an immigrant.

What's more is that Joe Giudice never obtained US citizenship.

So we more than suspect that Teresa doesn't have a problem with just any old immigrant.

What's different about Sofia? Well, she's not a European immigrant — she's Columbian.

Sofia also became a US citizen — even getting a perfect score on her citizenship test. Which should be easy for US citizens who were born here but requires a lot of learning for a newcomer.

(Seriously, you can take it for fun online and it's not hard, but a disturbingly large number of native citizens would be unable to pass it)

Sofia vergara

Sofia Vergara is a celebrated, award-winning actress and the highest paid woman on television. She also ranks reasonably high up there among the most powerful women in the world, in some listings.

We guess that, to Teresa Giudice, she was born in Columbia and that makes her somehow … lesser. That's sad.

You know what else jumps out at us about this?

Teresa Giudice believing that immigrants should be nice implies that she doesn't believe that native citizens have to be friendly.

And that explains a lot about Teresa Giudice.
