From the moment Joe Giudice began serving his four-year prison sentence on tax fraud charges, it was rumored that he might not be permitted to continue living in America after being released.
The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star was born in Italy and never became an American citizen.
As such, from the moment he pled guilty to a felony Joe became a candidate for deportation.
In October of 2018, the judge in Joe’s case ruled that Giudice would be ordered to return to Italy following his release from prison.
With the question of Joe’s fate decided, a new one emerged:
Would Teresa Giudice follow her husband to Italy, thus leaving behind the life and career she worked so hard to build in America?
Well, according to a new report from Radar Online, Joe might want to start working on his Italian Tinder profile.
“She is talking about divorce, absolutely,” a source close to the situation tells Radar later that day.
“There is no way Teresa is going to uproot her life. He did this, why should she suffer?” the insider continues.
“Teresa won’t be moving to Italy with Joe, period. In no uncertain terms would she even consider uprooting her life with the girls and moving.”
To be fair, Teresa was also convicted of tax fraud, but her sentence was much lighter than Joe’s.
The couple received permission to serve their sentences successively for the sake of their four daughters.
And Teresa reportedly believes it was all for naught if they force the girls to relocate to another country where they don’t even speak the language.
Two of the Giudice daughters are attempting to start music careers, and Teresa is realistic enough about her level of fame to know that she doesn’t possess enough clout to help them achieve their dreams overseas.
But despite rumors to the contrary, it seems Teresa has not yet filed for divorce from Joe.
Instead, she’ll be waiting until Joe is released to begin the proceedings.
We guess that’s the least she can for the guy after nearly 20 years of marriage.
