Teresa Giudice has faced a lot of challenges over the past few years, but this might be her most trying time yet. Last month, a judge ruled that her husband, Joe Giudice, will be deported back to Italy following the completion of his 41-month prison sentence.
But Teresa is staying strong during this difficult time, not only by finding strength within herself, but also by getting a little help from her friends. Though she's found support from many of The Real Housewives of New Jersey women, there are two ladies who Teresa has been able to lean on in particular. Teresa recently opened up to The Daily Dish about how this unlikely pair of New Jersey Housewives has really been there for her throughout this whole ordeal, which you can view in the video above.
Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, and Margaret Josephs have all also recently shared messages of love and support for Teresa and the whole Giudice family. Teresa told The Daily Dish that "just being around good people, positive people" has been a big help. "I do have that with my girlfriends, which is awesome," she shared. "Just being there for me, not asking any questions, just us laughing together and enjoying each other's company. That's what it's all about."
Joe has appealed the judge's deportation ruling, the Giudice family attorney James Leonard Jr. confirmed earlier this month. "The appeal has been filed and we remain optimistic that Joe will soon be home with his family where he belongs," he said in a statement to E! News. "We are extremely grateful for Joe's immigration attorneys Jerry Gonzales and Tom Moseley and are very confident in them."
Joe is currently serving his sentence for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud charges at FCI Allenwood in Pennsylvania after beginning his time at FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey in March 2016. He is due to be released in spring 2019.
