As the Giudice family awaits word on what will happen in Joe Giudice's ongoing deportation case, his four daughters have had their uncle Joe Gorga there to act as a surrogate dad. Teresa Giudice's brother has a special bond with his four nieces that they've leaned on throughout their dad's legal woes.
"He's been amazing," Teresa said about her younger brother in the RHONJ After Show, above. "I mean, he's adored Gia since the day she was born and they still keep that relationship. Any time Gia has a problem because her dad wasn't here and she wasn't able to call him right away, she was able to call me or my brother, which I love that."
Joe is currently in his native Italy while a decision is being made in his immigration case. He was released from ICE custody in October and his daughters and Teresa visited him in Italy in November. Since then, reports have surfaced that Joe and Teresa have decided to separate, though neither Joe nor Teresa have commented on the report.
Still, no matter what this family has been through, including Teresa's own past struggles in her relationships with brother Joe and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, they always have each other's backs. Both Joe and Melissa have been incredibly supportive of the family in the midst of their ups and downs.
"That's what family does," Teresa said in the After Show about their support. "I wouldn't expect anything less. That's how we always were. Family should always be there, no matter what."
