It's hard for children to go through this.
When asked why she is still a part of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey", Teresa Giudice simply said, "This is how I make a living, I have four daughters to raise. They are like, 'Why isn't Daddy coming come?' He did his time, they want him home". His sentence is up next year.
They've dealt with both of their parents serving time in prison and now the recent news that a judge ruled their father be deported back to Italy following the completion of his 41-month sentence in 2019.
Teresa explained that despite both his Italian parents becoming US citizens, they never applied on behalf of their son, who was just a baby when they immigrated.
"My father is no threat to society he is one of the most warm hearted people I know, he would never harm a soul", she said on social media.
Saying that her first three girls were "old enough now" to understand, she said of Audrina: 'The baby, we keep saying that he's at work, but I'm sure she hears, and when he calls it says "Calling from a Federal prison" so I'm sure she hears that'.
Joe's wife was asked if she knows why he never applied for citizenship, something she said Michael Strahan would "have to ask his parents" about. "I have to stay strong". I'm their Mommy - they look up to me.
Luckily, Teresa has Gia, 17, to help her explain things to the younger girls.
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 nearly three years. "I'm just taking it one day at a time", she answered. If you asked me when I started the show, I used get that question all the time, 'Where do you see yourself five years for now?' Successful.
Teresa and Joe's eldest daughter, Gia, has really been holding the family together following the news of her dad's possible deportation. Teresa teased, "One of them, I do get into with the next season".
She added that her own father was now unwell, saying: 'I just want to say my dad's in the hospital and I know he's watching me. I can't imagine another day without you.
