Tell us how you really feel, Giacinto Gorga! During the Wednesday, November 20, episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice‘s father didn’t hold back while talking about Joe Giudice‘s deportation status. “I slap your husband. He never did anything right, he did everything wrong!” the 76-year-old told the brunette beauty, 47. “Six times I told him, ‘Go make a citizen.’ ‘Yeah, yeah, I’ll go.’ He never did He gotta blame himself.”
After a tense phone conversation between Joe and Teresa — which occurred while Joe, 47, was at a correctional facility in Pennsylvania — the dad of four was angry about being locked up. At the end of the phone call, Teresa said, “I can’t take all this drama.” After the Italy native completed his 41-month jail sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud, he was transferred to the center, which is operated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Joe awaited a verdict in his deportation case in ICE custody, and in October, he was allowed to return to Italy — where he was born — per a judge. Now, the businessman is living abroad until he gets the results of his deportation appeal.
Recently, Teresa and her daughters — Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10, whom she shares with Joe — ventured to Italy to visit her husband. However, Joe uploaded several snaps with his father-in-law during their visit. “#Salute,” Joe wrote on his Instagram Story with Giacinto, which translates to “cheers” in English. The two held their glasses in their air and looked like they were having a great time together. Did the two make up after Giacinto made some hurtful comments? Perhaps!
Despite the rocky situation, it seems like Teresa — who previously revealed she wasn’t sure where things stood with Joe — is sticking by her man’s side through all of the drama. “I was so happy. I was happy he was free. I was happy. My daughters were so happy. It was just very, very, very emotional,” the Bravo personality told In Touch exclusively about their reunion at BravoCon on November 15.
It seems like Teresa is impressed by her husband’s new ~body.~ “He worked out the whole time he was away, like twice a day. Yeah, no, that’s what he loves to do,” she dished. “He’s going to keep working out. If anything, he’s not working out as much as he was working out. In there, that’s all you do.”
Well, we hope Teresa and Joe can work through things during this difficult time. If Giacinto came around, hopefully Teresa can too.
