As Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice work toward figuring out the next step for their family after his legal team filed for an appeal in connection with October's deportation ruling, their friends are definitely speaking up and showing their support. Margaret Josephs addressed their situation during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Wednesday.
She not only shared her reaction to the news (in the clip above), The Real Housewives of New Jersey pal also revealed if she thinks divorce could ever be an option for them. "No, I don't think they will. I think Teresa's super traditional and I just don't think she'll do it," she told a caller.
Just days ago, Joe's legal team filed an appeal in connection with the October ruling in which a judge decided that the RHONJ husband would be deported back to Italy following his prison term. He is currently in the midst of serving out 41 months in prison on mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud charges, a sentence which he began in March 2016 at FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey. In late 2017, Joe was transferred to FCI Allenwood in Pennsylvania.
"The appeal has been filed and we remain optimistic that Joe will soon be home with his family where he belongs. We are extremely grateful for Joe's immigration attorneys Jerry Gonzales and Tom Moseley and are very confident in them," attorney James Leonard Jr. told E! News in a statement. Page Six added it could take several months for an answer to be made on the appeal.
Margaret previously spoke to The Daily Dish about the news regarding Joe's current situation. "Joe's deportation has been the most upsetting news by far, I think, that we've had in the history of [The Real Housewives of New Jersey], much worse than either of them going to jail," she said. "I immediately had reached out to Teresa. She answered me right away. She is very, very strong. And I have said this, if anybody can hold it together, it's Teresa Giudice. She's gonna be strong for her daughters, she's gonna be strong for her family, and whatever the outcome is, if he is actually deported, she'll deal with it accordingly and hold her family together like she has all along," Margaret shared. "I mean, this is the most unfortunate news, and I'm devastated. It's heartbreaking, and it's the worst hand that you can be dealt. But she will handle it like the champ that she is."
Below, Teresa offers some more insight into their current family situation.
