Gia Giudice Makes Desperate Plea to Inmate Father

We often mock Teresa Giudice and members of her family.

It’s typically for good reason, too.

Teresa is just so self-centered and spoiled and she lacks any semblance of self-awareness and she broke the law awhile back by lying about her finances and has never really shown a hint of remorse.

This is all true.

But it can all be true and we can still feel very badly for her kids.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Joe Giudice really will face deportation after he completes his current prison sentence.

This had been rumored ever since Joe entered jail on tax evasion charges, but a judge dropped the deportation hammer once and for all in immigration court on Wednesday morning.

“Based upon the law, I find you deportable and ineligible for any kind of relief,” the judge said at the hearing, according to various sources, adding:

“Mr. Giudice, no matter how this turns out, I wish you the best. I decided this case as a matter of law.”

This is obviously quite a blow to Teresa and her four kids.

Joe is due for release next year, at which time, unless something significant changes, he will be sent back to his native country of Italy.

While various members of The Real Housewives community have reacted in sadness to this development, 17-year old daughter Gia Giudice is now here to speak out for the first time since the decision was handed down.

The oldest child of Joe and Teresa, Gia has shared a video created by a man named Fred Rubino.

In this footage, he called for an appeal of Joe’s impending deportation, alleging that the ruling on Giudice’s case was “racist” and “political” because Joe is Italian. 

That seems like quite the unverified leap, but Gia appears to concur.

“Spread the word, could’ve said it better myself.” Gia wrote in the caption. “I love you daddy, let’s fight this! @fredrubino.”

The despondent and angry teenager also shared a throwback photo on her Instagram Story of herself as a little girl holding onto Joe’s shoulders, and wrote on the image:

“New post!!!! Spread the word, let’s fight.”

It’s quite the image, that much is certain:

For whatever it’s worth, Teresa was not in the courtroom Wednesday when the judge made his ruling.

Joe now has 30 days to file an appeal; which we’d have to imagine he will do.

For those wondering…

Yes, Giudice has lived in America since he was a child.

However, he never obtained American citizenship, 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.

Does that seem unfair? Not to Donald Trump, probably.

Although Teresa has thus far remained silent on the ruling, a source told People Magazine that she “never imaged Joe would really get deported.”

Adds this insider:

“This is going to break her. She always knew that this was a possibility, but she put it out of her head. That’s the only way she could go on living day to day.”

In this one instance, we actually do feel badly for her.


Molly Roloff Actually Visits Family Farm, Makes Amy One Happy Mama

Molly Roloff may not be a cast member on Little People, Big World.

But that doesn’t mean she isn’t a very welcome member of her own family.

Unlike her brother, Jacob, who quit the aforementioned TLC series last summer in a major huff, Molly has never made any grand statements about the show being fake or phony or silly in any way.


She’s simply chosen to live a more private life, one that has taken her away from her family farm and one that includes a very normal and content existence with husband Joel.

Like we said before, however, Molly is on great terms with her parents despite having removed herself from their everyday lives and their most profitable source of income.

And that relationship was on full display this past weekend.

In honor of the beginning of pumpkin season at Roloff Farms, Molly and Joel drove on down and supported their loved ones.

They posed for a photo with the entire family, and they also posed for a photo with just Amy, as you can see above.

“I was so so excited that Molly and Joel were able to drive down for opening weekend of pumpkin season at Roloff Farms Pumpkin Patch,” Amy wrote as a caption to the two images above.

She added:

“It was wonderful to see them. This mom was happy.”

And below is the snapshot that has been making the Internet rounds, with nearly every single Roloff in the same place for a fun change:

As far as Molly goes, she recently hung with her dad as well and does try to come back to the farm when she can.

But she headed off college at Whitworth University and then met her now-husband shortly thereafter, Joel Silvius.

Together, the couple chose to stay in the area and they’re now permanently based in Spokane, Washington, which is about a six-hour drive from where Matt and Amy reside.

(Yes, Matt and Amy are divorced, but they still live on the same large piece of property. It’s a whole thing.)

It’s not a short haul for Joel and Molly to visit the farm, but pumpkin season is THE huge event for this family.

At least professionally speaking.

“The first weekend of pumpkin season has officially come and the whole family came out!” the Roloffs shared on the farm’s official Instagram page.

“Thank you to everyone who has come out despite the rainy Oregon weather!” 


Derick Dillard Makes Jill Duggar Sit Through Law School Class, Calls It a Date

Most people have been on a horrendous date or two in their lives.

Maybe the guy conveniently left his wallet at home, or you made reservations at a steakhouse before finding out your date’s a vegetarian.

But no matter how many boring or awkward nights you’ve been forced to endure, you can probably say that no one ever forced you to find a babysitter just so you can sit next to them during a class or tort reform or some similarly boring BS.

The photo above was posted on Derick Dillard’s Instagram page on Wednesday.

He captioned the pic:

“Glad my favorite study buddy @jillmdillard was able to come to class yesterday! You’ve gotta find alone time (no kids) whenever you can! Thanks @jessaseewald for babysitting!”

Jill and Derick Dillard with Family


Yes, Derick Dillard is in law school these days, and since men of the Duggar clan don’t do anything without the help of their women, he apparently brings Jill to class with him.

Because every harried stay-at-home mom who homeschools her kids dreams of getting a night off so that she can sit there and take notes for her husband.

Commenters on the pic were understandably curious as to why in the hell Derick would drag Jill along on such an incredibly lame “date.”

The most likely answer, of course, is that Jesus instructed him to bore the hell out of his wife.

As you may recall Derick has claimed that God wants him to go to law school.

Presumably, this is so that he can fight for school children to be taught that the Earth is 6,000 years old and Jesus invented the AR-15 while feeding his brontosaurus.

Anyway, Duggar men are taught from a young age that God wants them to be obscenely wealthy and if they’re faithful enough, he’ll set them on the path to fame and fortune.

(Kind of goes against the many passages in the Bible in which Jesus condemns those who amass large amounts of wealth, but that’s a conversation for another time.)

Conversely, Duggar women are told that their role in life is to be submissive and do as they’re told.

Their purpose on this planet, according to the Duggars’ brand of fundamentalism, is to help their husbands get rich.

And so, if Derick wants Jill to help him take notes in class, she would likely see that as her divinely-ordained duty.

So we guess that her date nights will look a lot like this for the next few years.

Hopefully, she’ll be able to hold onto that fake smile.


Louis C.K. Makes Surprise Return to Standup Following Sexual Misconduct Revelations

In November of 2017, the #MeToo movement was still in its infancy, and many had yet to fully grasp the severity of the abuses of power that led so many women in Hollywood to band together.

These days, Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby — both of whom had reputations for predatory behavior long before they were finally held responsible for their actions — are both facing jail time while perpetrators of less appalling misconduct are prematurely seeking a path to redemption.

Louis C.K. falls into the latter category.

While whispers about the comic’s predatory behavior were not as widespread as in the cases of Weinstein or Cosby, many within the industry were sadly not surprised to learn that C.K. was in the habit of masturbating in front of female comics.

Often, the women accompanied C.K. to a private location after an industry event, under the impression that he intended to offer them career advice — a tactic that’s not unfamiliar to many of Weinstein’s victims.

On at least one occasion, C.K. blocked the exit to prevent his victim from escaping.

We can discuss C.K.’s behavior without using the “alleged” qualifier, as the comic has confessed the accounts of the five women who came forward are accurate.

Needless to say, that’s the sort of conduct that typically brings an end to one’s career in the public eye — which is why so many were stunned to learn that C.K. made a surprise return to the world of standup last night.

C.K. took the stage at New York’s famed Comedy Cellar last night, performing a short set that focused on observations on day-to-day life and kept a safe distance from social commentary.

In an interview with the New York Times, club owner Noan Dworman defended his decision to spring C.K. on the audience with a surprise performance:

“It sounded just like he was trying to work out some new material, almost like any time of the last 10 years he would come in at the beginning of a new act,” Dworman.

He added that the unannounced show was “typical Louis CK stuff” with jokes about racism, waitresses’ tips and the absurdity parades.

“It was very ordinary for him,” Dworman added.

He also noted that C.K. received “sustained applause” from the audience.

“It was a good reception. He went through an everyday list of jokes.”

On social media, the consensus is that it’s much too soon for C.K. to attempt a comeback and it was in poor taste to make his return in front of an audience that wasn’t expecting him.

However, a handful of comics who regard C.K. as a mentor have defended the decision:

“Will take heat for this, but people have to be allowed to serve their time and move on with their lives,” tweeted Michael Ian Black.

“I don’t know if it’s been long enough, or his career will recover, or if people will have him back, but I’m happy to see him try.”
