Even though the court has demanded Joe Giudice to return to his native Italy, Teresa Giudice claims he is staying positive and upbeat as he finishes up his 41-month prison sentence for several charges, including bankruptcy, mail, and wire fraud.
When Teresa was on Good Morning America this morning, the 46-year-old reality star dished on her husband’s fate and how the entire situation has been so disappointing for Joe, Teresa, and their children.
Describing the ruling as “heartbreaking” and “very sad,” Giudice explained that their four daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, were “really upset” with the news.
Teresa said it was easy for her and other adults to deal with the ruling, but for their children, it’s something else entirely. All of their daughters are teenagers, perhaps the most vulnerable stage of their lives.
Regarding the effect it has had on their marriage, Teresa said it has been “very difficult,” and they’ve gone through a lot. However, she’s managing to stay strong for their girls.

As fans of the Real Housewives alum know, she also served a prison sentence of 11-months for the same crimes. During a conversation with People Magazine, the star revealed Joe’s and her turmoil together following years of incarceration, media scrutiny, and familial stress.
Interestingly, Teresa said she was “very angry,” and wishes that her husband would have “crossed every T, and dotted every I.” She also claims there was another person involved who should’ve been punished.
Furthermore, Teresa is having a hard time coping with the death of her mother, as well as the fact her youngest daughters have missed out on having a father for almost three years.
As for her daughters, Teresa claims they know she is doing everything in her power to make Joe stay in the United States of America, where he belongs.
Some online have suggested the ruling is far too harsh, considering Joe, who wasn’t born in the US, has spent nearly his entire life on American soil. Unfortunately, the judge and the jury decided the determination of Joe’s fate was appropriate considering his status as an immigrant.
