Following the ruling that Joe Giudice will be deported back to Italy after the completion of his 41-month prison sentence, his wife, Teresa Giudice, has tried not to think about what would happen if her husband had to leave the country. However, she finally addressed her plans for what she and her family will do if Joe does, in fact, get deported, in a shocking revelation during Part 2 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 reunion Wednesday night (clip above).
Teresa shocked everyone at the reunion when she shared that she doesn't think she would follow Joe to Italy if he does end up getting deported. "I hope that's not a decision I have to make, but to pick up my children and just move to another country, I don't think that would be good for my children," she said. "So, I mean, so, no, I probably wouldn't."
What exactly that means for Teresa and Joe's marriage will be addressed in Part 3 of the RHONJ Season 9 reunion next Wednesday at 9/8c.
Before the end of this part of the reunion, Teresa noted that she hopes she doesn't "have to cross that bridge" when it comes to the possibility of Joe's deportation. And she made it clear that she still is completely devoted to Joe.
But Teresa also admitted that she's "angry" with Joe for putting her and her family in this position in the first place, especially since she lost time with her mother, Antonia Gorga, who passed away in March 2017.
Teresa shared during the reunion how Joe is doing as he approaches the end of his prison sentence. "He has tremendous guilt, but he's very positive, very strong," she said.
Earlier in the episode, Teresa underscored how important Joe is to his daughters (Gia, 18, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 13, Audriana, 9) while Melissa Gorga opened up about how her father passing away when she was 17 years old impacted her whole entire life. "That's why my daughters need their dad to come home and not be deported," Teresa said. "It's like poor Audriana, she was 6 when he left. These are, like, important years."
Teresa said that the past several years have been "rough" for her and her family during Part 1 of the RHONJ Season 9 reunion. "I mean, I've been on this roller coaster for the past five years, and it's hard," she said. "It's like, I don't know how much a person can take."
