It’s a sad day for the Giudice family. On Wednesday, an immigration court ruled to deport Joe Giudice to his native country of Italy.
Teresa Giudice never expected this to happen, a source told People.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star “never imagined Joe would really get deported,” the source said.
In 2016, Joe began serving a 41-month sentence in prison for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud. Teresa served 11 months in prison for the same crimes in 2015.
After this new ruling, Joe has 30 days to appeal the decision. Teresa did not appear in immigration court.
“This is going to break her,” the insider said.
“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.”
While Joe deals with his legal battles, he’d rather Teresa focus on “their girls and things at home,” the source explained. Joe and Teresa have four daughters together.
