Teary Teresa’s Des­per­ate Plea

Life & Style Weekly - - Inside Hollywood -

Al­though he em­i­grated to Amer­ica as a child, a court ruled that Joe, who is cur­rently serv­ing a 41-month prison sen­tence for mail, wire and bank­ruptcy fraud, must re­turn to his home coun­try.

Ap­pear­ing be­fore a packed au­di­ence at the Mo­he­gan Sun casino for a Re­al­ity Check event in Con­necti­cut on Oct. 21, Teresa Gi­u­dice, with tears in her eyes, asked the crowd to say a prayer that her hus­band Joe “gets to come home.” Eleven days ear­lier, a judge ruled that Joe, 46, will be de­ported to his na­tive Italy at the end of his prison sen­tence for fraud in 2019. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 46, “feels like her hands are tied. There’s noth­ing she can do to change the le­gal sys­tem or the court’s mind,” a source tells Life & Style. “Which is why she’s ask­ing her friends, fam­ily and fans to pray for Joe, to bring him home.” The fraught mother of four and her daugh­ters Gia, 17, and Mi­la­nia, 12, made im­pas­sioned pleas on so­cial me­dia, promis­ing to fight for their fam­ily’s in­car­cer­ated pa­tri­arch. “Teresa’s mainly wor­ried about her girls not hav­ing their dad around for those im­por­tant mo­ments like grad­u­a­tion, first dates and prom. It’s heart­break­ing,” sighs the source. “She doesn’t think de­port­ing Joe, tear­ing him away from his fam­ily, does any­one jus­tice. Teresa re­ally be­lieves that he’s be­ing un­fairly pun­ished be­cause she’s fa­mous.”
