According to new reports, following a judge’s decision to deport Joe Giudice, Teresa really hopes her husband will be able to at least attend his daughter’s graduation as they appeal the order. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was at an event with some of her co-stars and only mentioned the deportation to ask people for prayers that he can see their oldest daughter, Gia, graduate.
One eyewitness tells People that she addressed the audience, saying: ‘Everybody, please pray for my family that my husband Joe gets to come home see our daughter Gia graduate.’
As fans know, Teresa has kept mostly quiet about the fact that Joe is set to be deported after completing his prison sentence.
She did, however, post a pic of the Statue of Liberty crying last week and captioned it with praying hands emojis.
One insider shared with E! News that Teresa was absolutely ‘devastated’ when she learned Joe would be sent back to Italy.
As for how this would affect the family, the source said: ‘Teresa and Joe have no plans in place for what to do in their marriage, even though she’s committed to finding a way to make this work for her family. She hates the idea of uprooting her kids from their lives and leaving her father who lives with her to move across the world.’
Aside from Teresa’s wordless post about the deportation, two of their daughters also took to social media to address the judge’s decision.
Gia, 17, wrote: ‘My father’s no threat to society he’s one of the most warm-hearted people I know, he’d never harm a soul. He puts everybody else before himself. I know very well who my father is and I believe many of you do too. My father did his time and he learned from his mistakes.’
In addition, 12-year-old Milania posted: ‘My dad, who is the best dad in the world, needs to come home. We are not done fighting dad. I cannot believe this is happening. I cannot imagine another day without you. We are going to do everything we can to fight this daddy!! I love you with all of my heart buddy.’
