Teresa Giudice: Watch Her FLIP OUT at Jackie Goldschneider

We covered a lot on this week's The Real Housewives of New Jersey recap, but one moment in particular merits further examination.

Teresa totally flipped her s--t at Jackie Goldschneider when the latter touched on a very sensitive subject.

Don't rub it in Teresa's face that her husband is in prison. She knows. And she will end you.

Teresa giudice is not impressed

Jackie Goldshneider has made a catastrophic mistake.

But this The Real Housewives of New Jersey clip begins with an argument between Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga.

Teresa believes that Melissa's husband, Joe Gorga, has not been spending enough time with their father, Giacinto Gorga.

Giacinto is in poor health, and Teresa feels that Melissa could be doing more to 

Melissa does not enjoy being told how to manage her marriage.

And she is not shy about expressing that.

Melissa gorga says hands off her marriage

"I don’t wanna be told how to convey something to my husband," Melissa says.

"My marriage is strong," she affirms. "It’s good for a f--king reason."

"We talk," Melissa states. "And that’s it!"

"Nobody tells me how to speak to my husband," she announces. "Not my sister-in-law. Not my mother. No one!"

That sounds firm enough, right?

Jackie goldschneider speaks

This is where Jackie makes her fatal error.

See, Melissa isn't getting anywhere with Teresa.

Teresa, in the mean time, seems to feel that Melissa should be able to simply control her husband, or his emotions.

Now, we're not saying that emotional manipulation isn't a time-honored marital tradition, for better for for worse.

But Jackie thinks that it's absurd that Teresa is suggesting that Melissa should be able to play her husband like a fiddle.

Teresa giudice stares in disbelief

In an effort to highlight how little wives can actually control the actions or feelings of their husbands, Jackie brings up a very sensitive topic.

Joe Giudice is in prison (and, in fact, will very likely be deported in the spring of 2019).

Jackie goes a little too far in trying to prove her point.

"I’m sorry," Jackie begins.

"With all due respect," Jackie says. "Do you really feel like your husband would be in jail right now if you could control what he did?"

Oh no.

Jackie goldschneider awkwardly enrages teresa giudice

The immediate tension that follows is palpable.

Everyone seems to be in disbelief at what Jackie just asked, and is waiting nervously for Teresa's reaction.

Even Jackie herself covers her mouth with her hand, as if she is filled with instant regret and perhaps a degree of dread.

The entire room braces themselves for Teresa's response.

Teresa giudice yells

"Why are you bringing up my husband and where he is?" Teresa demands to know.

She does not like to verbally acknowledge her husband's incarceration if she can help it.

Teresa cannot help but take Jackie's words as a personal attack.

"How dare she throw it in my face that my husband’s away," Teresa tells the camera.

Teresa asks: "Who the f–k does this b–ch think she is?"

Jackie goldschneider has regrets

Jackie, of course, was just trying to point out that wives cannot control their husbands.

But she really pushed the envelope in her effort to prove that.

Joe is a touchy subject, and with his looming and seemingly inevitable deportation, that's only going to become worse.

Don't push Teresa Giudice's buttons, folks.

You might lose your button-pushing fingers.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Who Might Have a Secret Sister?

Well, they're going there!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 Episode 5 did not lack for drama. 

The reason? Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are more at odds than ever, and it's making for a healthy dose of drama on a weekly basis.

Teresa Giudice Possibly Rapping

The latest twist in the tale occurred when Teresa dragged her brother, Joe Gorga, for not spending time with their father, Giacinto. 

"Get the f*** outta here," Joe yelled as he stormed out of Teresa's home, and shouting:

"Shove it up your f***ing ass! You've always gotta bitch."

"I've gotta go back to work. Is that OK with you, or am I a scumbag for working?" Joe said as he exited the scene. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you know that Joe has said that his work has kept him super busy, thinking that makes up for the lack of time he spends with his father. 

Joe Gorga Poses

Teresa has long blamed sister-in-law Melissa for the way Joe acted, and that's clearly why their feud is starting to go into overdrive again. 

It all came to a head at a children's party that Jennifer Aydin hosted for everyone. 

Teresa complained that Melissa was the one who was the problem and that she was "getting him all amped up," or something. 

Jackie then decided enough was enough and defended Melissa. 

"She's entitled to talk to her husband in the way that she feels comfortable," the new addition to the cast said. 

Jackie Goldschneider Trashes Teresa Giudice

Jackie continued to defend Melissa, adding:

"I give you credit because I would've gotten up and stormed away from the f***ing table."

Jackie even ruffled Jennifer's feathers because the latter seemed to think you could control your man. 

"The idea that you can control your husband is ridiculous. If you can control him then that means you have a husband without a backbone," Jackie seethed. 

The drama went into overdrive when Teresa told Jackie to "mind your own business" before yelling that she was to stop messing with her family. 

Teresa Giudice Promotes RHONJ

That's when Jackie went for the jugular and uttered the following words:

"Do you really feel like your husband would be in jail right now if you could control what he did?"

Everyone was blindsided, and Teresa managed to respond without actually throwing a table. 

"Why are you bringing up my husband and where he is?" Teresa calmly quizzed, but she saved her rage for a confessional. 

"How dare she throw it in my face that my husband's away. Who the f*** does this bitch think she is?" Teresa shrieked, adding:

"Jackie's lucky that Milania just walked in because I'm not gonna fight in front of my daughter. This isn't f***ing over." 

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 Cast

As for Jackie, she took to a confessional to drag Teresa some more. 

"I think Teresa is used to bulldozing Melissa with her BFF Dolores, but I won't stand for that. If you're a bitch, I'll call you out on it. And if you don't like it, that's your problem, not mine."

Melissa was thankful for Jackie but knew it would only spell further drama. 

"I appreciate Jackie backing me up. But I know Teresa - when you say something that stings her she does not forget. I do not think this is going to be good for the two of them."

Elsewhere, Melissa asked both of her sisters Lysa and Kim whether they had a secret half-sister. 

Melissa Gorga Sobs

Oh yes, the show is killing it this season. 

Apparently, Melissa attended a psychic who said that her father had a message for her:

She had three sisters!

"I mean we heard things about him being unfaithful, but a child? Never!" said Lysa. 

"Throughout my childhood, my dad would leave the house sometimes and come back a couple of days later," Teresa added in a confessional.

"Is it a possibility that he was with another woman, or creating another child? Yeah, there's definitely a possibility of that."

Melissa Gorga on a Red Carpet

"I have watched my mom cry for years over my father. He would always just apologize for not coming home."

Okay then. This might be the most intriguing storyline on the show in quite some time.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Housewives & Heifers

The newest addition to The Real Housewives of New Jersey is not all she cracked up to be. 

Wednesday's episode of the Bravo hit made the housewives see Jennifer Aydin in a new light, and it became abundantly clear that this new star is not the person everyone thought she was. 

Jennifer Aydin Promotes The Real Housewives of New Jersey

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you know that Aydin appeared as one of the more down-to-earth cast members when she debuted, despite the fact that her husband wants her to spend every waking moment with the children. 

On a recent episode, her husband was less than impressed that Jennifer wanted to go to Oklahoma with her fellow cast members, and with the ladies on the trip during Wednesday's installment, viewers got a glimpse of Aydin's true nature. 

It's not easy for someone to go from living the high life to living the not so high life, but Jennifer had already stirred up some drama when she complained that she wanted to stay in one of the nicer rooms. 

The ladies were out for dinner early into the episode and got talking about what they liked to do in the snow. That's when the housewives realized this newbie was not like any of them. 

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 Cast

"It's so much work. I was miserable the whole time, so I just left the nanny with them," she said of taking her children skiing. 

"I don't have a nanny that raises my kids; I have a 'wife.' That's what I call it. I have a woman to cook and clean for me because I have seven bedrooms upstairs. I have two more guest rooms in my basement, and my basement has 11-foot high ceilings."

The true kicker was that Jennifer went on to say that she does bag searches of people who frequent her home ... including her nannies. 

"I have a security system in my house," she continued. "A lot of the rooms have cameras, and my nannies -- before they leave -- I do random bag checks."

It certainly ruffled some feathers, and fellow newbie, Jackie Goldschneider brought up a very good point. 

To wit:

"You trust people with your children but not with your silverware?" Jackie complained in a confessional. 

Dolores Catania Promotes RHONJ

That wasn't all from Jennifer. She went on to say that she went out to a nightclub dressed up as a dominatrix. Jennifer had been somewhat reserved during her first episodes on the show, but she's more than making up for that now. 

"I never told my husband about the dominatrix thing until after we were engaged," she said in a confessional.

"He was a little bit shocked, but he was kind of like, 'Okay, now go whip some shit up -- but in the kitchen.'"

Okay then. 

Jackie and Margaret took issue with the way Jennifer was acting and complained that they didn't think they were getting the real person. 

In true reality TV fashion, they said this out of earshot of the newbie. 

Tensions continued to mount when the ladies decided that the person who lost out on the cattle show would have to sleep in the trailer. 

Everyone seemed on board ... except for Jennifer. 

Margaret Josephs

"It was very tight. I mean, I have a very large house. I come from 16 bathrooms," she told the women.

"We were told we were going to a ranch. It's a 1,000-acre ranch. I thought it was maybe gonna be luxurious. Seriously, one bathroom in the hallway for all those bedrooms? It's really hard. It's really easy in life to move up, but it's hard to go back down."

"God has a very funny way of humbling people," said Dolores Catania who was thankful for what she had, and was the one sleeping in the trailer. 

Jennifer then got even more obnoxious by speaking highly of her home after she asked the ladies if they would be interested in visiting. 

"I've had people compare it Monte Carlo or a hotel in France," Jennifer told them. "What I've been describing about the house -- it just doesn't do it justice. I have this huge fountain!"

"I have a fountain, too," said Teresa as it became clear these housewives were comparing fountains. 

Teresa Giudice Promotes RHONJ

Jennifer continued with the insults about Oklahoma, and she seemingly saved the best for near the end of the episode. 

"If I have a few days off, I wanna go where it's sunny. I wanna go where it's glamorous," she whined.

"But like, Oklahoma? What are you gonna go cow-tipping? I feel like if I came here, I would probably just stay in a hotel."

Margaret's friend, Polly, who was allowing all the women in her home had to leave the situation because she was tired of her way of life being dragged. 

The drama continued to ramp up when they returned to Polly's home, and Jennifer took issue with the music. 

"What is this country music? What a f--king snore," she yelled. 

Jennifer Aydin in Oklahoma

"Like, people listen to that music? Ha! She coulda played some house music or something and get really turned up. You know, cater to the guest!"

Margaret reprimanded Jennifer for her comments and for being "socially inappropriate."

"Okay, so I'm socially inappropriate. What're you gonna do about it? I don't like the music! I'm entitled to an opinion," Jennifer fired back. 

Yeah, Jennifer is not the nice person she first appeared to be!

Teresa Giudice: Deep in Denial about Joe’s Looming Deportation?

It feels like the Giudice family is in ruins thanks to Joe's very likely deportation next year.

Teresa, however, seems to be keeping busy and even staying positive.

It's not because she's happy about Joe getting the boot. According a report, she's deep in denial.

Teresa Giudice on GMA

HollywoodLife reports that Teresa is still struggling to accept the reality of what Joe's deportation will mean.

"Teresa is absolutely heartbroken over the news that Joe will not be allowed back into America once he’s deported," and insider states.

We knew this -- but we didn't know the whole story.

"However," the source characterizes. "She is still a bit delusional and does not believe it will actually happen."

Whoa, there. Delusional is a little harsh. In denial sounds more accurate and a lot more polite.

Per the insider: "She thinks Joe will somehow, magically be able to remain in the States."

Teresa Giudice on Watch What Happens

The source says that Teresa is clinging to this hope "despite what the judges are saying and all the signs and facts that point to the contrary."

The insider goes on to allege that Teresa is "majorly in denial about what is going on."

Ah, there it is.

"Teresa is not really an emotional person," the source says. "And lives in denial with a lot of things in her life."

People who are deeply in touch with their own thoughts and feelings may be more grounded in reality.

"But," the insider notes. "Her oldest daughter Gia realizes this is in fact a reality."

Well Gia is 17 going on 18, and seems to have a good head on her shoulders.

Gia and Joe Giudice

Apparently, Teresa's current behavior has her loved ones a little worried.

"Family and friends alike both see that Teresa is out running around like crazy and traveling," the source reports.

It is evident, the insider says, that Teresa is "doing her best to distract herself from what is actually going on."

She's also a busy person in general, but sure.

"They wish she’d stay home more with her girls," the source says. "As her girls are her world."

"However," the insider explains. "She’s doing it to numb the pain."

Teresa Giudice and Daughters in the Bahamas

Rumors that Teresa will divorce Joe have persisted since even before the shocking deportation ruling on October 10.

But this particular inside source doesn't see it happening.

"Teresa would never leave Joe," the source claims. "Because she doesn’t want to actually go through a divorce."

Yeah -- divorce is zero fun.

"But of course," the insider continues. "She’s angry and resentful."

Joe getting into trouble like this is really doing a number on their whole family.

"She’s most concerned about her daughters," the source affirms. "And making sure they’re OK."

Teresa Giudice Shows Off Her Hair

That's good to hear.

Children are resilient, but they lack the coping mechanisms and perspective of adults.

Those four girls are going to need a lot of emotional support.

Fortunately, as Teresa recently made very clear during an appearance on Good Morning America, she's there for them.

"I have to stay strong," Teresa stated.

Teresa explained: "I have four beautiful daughters and they need their mommy."

Teresa Giudice and Hubby

We're usually (though not always) leery of reports on other people's feelings.

Sometimes, even those closest to us, we don't show our actual state of mind.

Maybe Teresa is trying to stay busy because she's in debt and she has four children and a soon-to-be-deported husband to support.

Maybe Teresa is speaking positively about Joe's chances because she wants to have a good attitude.

No one wants to give up on a loved one. And staying positive doesn't hurt anyone.

Her daughters -- except perhaps for Gia -- will take a little while to accept that Joe's appeal is a long-shot at best.

Joe Giudice: The Real Housewives of New Jersey RUINED My Family!

Teresa Giudice is having a tough time with husband Joe's impending deportation.

Now, Joe is making things worse in a way that could cut into her livelihood.

According to a report, Joe is demanding that their four daughters stop appearing on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Teresa Giudice Hold Hands

RadarOnline reports that Joe Giudice wants his daughters to end their reality careers now.

"Joe no longer wants his kids to appear on the RHONJ,� an insider reveals.

Apparently, he lays the blame for his family's troubles in recent years on their reality stardom.

According to the source: “He feels the show has destroyed his family."

Teresa is the Real Housewife of the group, but they've all risen to fame.

All four of their children, Gia, 17, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 9, are young.

Will Joe's objections mean that they have to stop filming?

Milania Giudice and Joe Giudice

"His wife’s team is doing all they can to talk him off his position," an insider reports.

The source says that they're emphasizing that a reality career is vital "for the sake of putting food on their table.�

According to online sources, Teresa's net worth is estimated to be in the negative -- by millions of dollars.

Those hefty The Real Housewives of New Jersey paychecks should keep them afloat and may secure them more opportunities in the future.

“Teresa can’t even speak to him," an insider characterizes.

The source explains that Teresa is reluctant to discuss this with Joe because "she’s so pissed off."

Gia and Joe Giudice

"The Court finds that the underlying offenses for Respondent’s conspiracy conviction, mail and wire fraud…are aggravated felonies," the court ruled.

The October 10 ruling came as a shock to the Giudice family.

"As both convictions contain elements that necessarily entail fraudulent or deceitful conduct,� the judge wrote.

“In addition, Giudice’s crimes constitute morally turpitudinous behavior [because he] failed to pay his taxes," the court noted.

It came because Joe didn't pay taxes "for the purpose of misleading or concealing."

All of this, the court decided, is why Joe will be expelled from the only country he has ever known and sent to Italy, which he left as a baby.

Teresa Giudice and Hubby

Joe was truly taken aback.

"I don’t understand how I can be deported on this case," he protested.

"If you will," he reportedly implored the court. "I’ll tell you my side."

In Joe's assessment: "I shouldn’t even be here right now."

Unfortunately, that's what the court thought, too -- and he is slated for deportation in 2019.

He will be released from prison in March. If his appeal is before then and he loses, he could also be deported in March.

If his appeal happens after his release from prison, it may buy him a little more time in the States.

His family is really shaken up about it.

Teresa Giudice and Daughters in the Bahamas

Of course, the fact that Joe is reportedly insisting that his daughters cut short their reality careers is odd.

He's talking about risking his wife's paycheck.

And let's not pretend that a check from Bravo is the only perk of being a Real Housewife.

Whether you're promoting your own products or endorsing someone else's, reality stars can make bank on social media.

If this report about Joe is true, he's talking about taking that away from his family in their moment of need.

Most perplexing is his reason.

Teresa and Joe Giudice Reunite

Is Joe seriously blaming The Real Housewives of New Jersey for his family's troubles?

A lot of people like to blame Andy Cohen for things, but this might be the wildest accusation yet.

Joe and Teresa both went to prison for fraud.

The court very reasonably allowed them to serve separate sentences in order for at least one of them to always be there for their children.

If Joe is trying to shift the blame to external forces, he needs to take a good, hard look in the mirror.

His deportation is tragic and frankly sounds unjust.

But going to prison for fraud? That was of his own making.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 Episode 2 Recap: Teresa Giudice Reignites Her Feud With Joe & Melissa Gorga

Wednesday's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reignited the feud between Teresa Giudice and her brother, Joe Gorga, and it looks like we're in for a season of backstabs between the brother and sister. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you know the season premiere found Teresa opening up about Joe steering clear of their father in recent months, signaling that things were going south for the family. 

Teresa Giudice Promotes RHONJ

"My brother used to be around more when my mom first passed away, and I’m really nervous to say anything to him because when I brought this up in the past, it got ugly,� Teresa explained of the situation in a confessional.

“My brother and I have been doing really well for a while now, and I definitely don’t want history to repeat itself. Life is short. I just don’t want my brother to have any regrets.�

In true Teresa fashion, she brought it up during a family gathering. Thankfully, she did not throw some tables. She's learned from her mistakes. 

Things started to get heated during the dinner party, with Joe's father Giacinto yelling about his son not calling him, going as far as saying "F--k you" to him. 

“Are you going to be around more for this one? He wants you around more,� she said. “The kid that’s not around the most, that’s the kid you always want.�

Teresa Giudice on Watch What Happens

Melissa who has feuded with Teresa in the past because of her association with her brother took to a confessional to complain about the whole thing. 

“Who brings up a super sensitive, going-to-cause-a-problem conversation on Easter Sunday? Especially in front of my father-in-law, who is super upset as it is,� she asked.

“This is definitely not the day, the time, the place. Like, your timing sucks.�

“Not on Easter,� Melissa added.

“This conversation gets my skin crawling because I get instant flashbacks of the pain that Joe went through years ago over conversations that were similar."

Melissa Gorga on a Red Carpet

"I know my husband. When you push him, and you constantly say the same thing to him over and over again, I know he’s going to explode. Joe is a ticking time bomb. It’s going to happen.�

Joe made it clear that he was getting sick of the way Teresa was acting. 

“You gotta cut that out,� he snapped at Teresa.

“You always bring that up in front of Daddy. ‘Oh you work too much, you’re not around.’ Listen to me, if I was sitting in a bar all day, if I was sitting in restaurants, that’s a different story. But what am I going to do? When you put in 15 hours a day, hard work? I’m exhausted.�

“You know my life. You know the business, it’s crazy. I work hardcore, all day, every day, nonstop. Unbelievable stresses,� Joe added.

Joe Gorga Poses

“My business takes all my freakin time. Is he going to pay my bills? No one pays my bills. What am I going to do, just give it all up?�

That was not all Teresa had to say, however. 

“I’m just saying, he bitches to me all the time,� she complained. “I got to hear him! ‘Your brother don’t call me. It’s been five days.’“

“Since I’ve lost my mom, holidays are more emotional. I’m just trying to make the holiday as best as I can for my dad. I just want to make him happy. He needs that,� Teresa said, addressing the cameras.

“Before I went away, I spent a lot of time with my mom. And right now all I can think about is how when I came home, I wished I spent more time with my mom. So it’s frustrating that my brother makes the effort to see my dad just on a holiday.�

Teresa's daughter, Gia, turned to her uncle Joe with her take on what was going on. 

“It’s not fair,� said the teenager. “We get it so much from Nonno, you don’t even know. I know you have work, trust me, I know. But if you don’t call him for a day, he says something. … At least just try, in a week, just one designated day for Nonno.�

Gia Giudice on IG

But there was no getting through to Joe who maintained that he was a busy man. 

“I don’t give a s—,� yelled Teresa. “You have to make time. In life, that’s how it is. Capeesh?�

While the fighting simmered down and everyone enjoyed the rest of the day, Joe confirmed in a confessional that he was mad at his sister. 

“Teresa was always like this when we were kids,� Joe admitted. “When it came to me, she would rat me out. Why are you still doing this? It’s going to cause a big problem again, which we don’t need.�

As if that wasn't enough drama, Margaret informed Danielle that she was going to an event hosted by Dolores and things got a little bit crazy. 

"She invited me to this thing--," said Margaret BUT Danielle butted in. 

"And you coulda said, 'No, I'm not coming because that will make Danielle very upset and very hurt. It'll hurt her!' Because you coulda said, 'This would hurt me if the tables were turned.' You coulda said anything but, 'Yes, I'll come.'"

Danielle Staub Smiles

As Margaret tried to calm Danielle down, the former main cast member decided to storm off, but she came back with a parting shot:

"What is it that you two really have in common? You cheated on your husband, and she got cheated on?"

That has got to be one of the best one-liners in the history of the series, and just like that, it looks like another friendship is over. 

What are your thoughts on all the drama?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey continues Mondays on Bravo. 

Teresa Giudice Hasn’t Had Sex in Well Over Two Years

In the eyes of Teresa Giudice and her loved ones, Joe Giudice has been screwed over by the American justice system.

This is their takeaway after a judge sentenced that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star must actually be deported back to his native country of Italy after he gets released from prison in 2019.

But while Teresa and her four kids think their loved one has gotten the shaft as a result of this decision, Giudice admitted something to Andy Cohen this week.

She hasn't gotten Joe's shaft in well over two years.

By which we mean the following:

Teresa has not had sexual intercourse in a very, very, VERY long time.

“There have always been rumors that you and Joe were going to get divorced, and now he’s been away and my poor girl has not had sex in a long time ‘cause there’s no conjugal visits,” Cohen said while chatting with Giudice on Watch What Happens Live.

“Two years and seven months. I’m counting," Teresa said in response.

Such a dry spell would appear to spell doom for a marriage, although Teresa swears she isn't gonna split from Joe.

Instead, this lack of boning can be more connected to a simple lack of time Teresa and Joe have had together.

Not because they are working long hours or anything like that...

... but because Teresa was in jail for 11 months and then, as soon as she was freed, Joe was placed behind bars to begin his prison sentence for bankruptcy and other types of financial fraud.

Both husband and wife pleaded guilty to these charges in 2014.

As a result, they haven't exactly had time to much hanky or panky in the years since.

In October, a judge ordered Joe to be deported to his native Italy after his release from prison. He plans to appeal the ruling.

Will Teresa be by his side throughout the process?

Will she ever be back under his naked body ever again?

Only time will tell, folks.

Check out the video here to watch Teresa spill all the deets about her sex life... or lackthereof.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is back!

Wednesday's season premiere of the Bravo hit started the process of filling in the blanks for fans and set up the season's big villain: Danielle Staub. 

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 Cast

Teresa Giudice, in particular, was all about switching up her look for a bikini fitness competition and that meant doing some exercising and clean eating. 

"With Joe being away right now, there is a lot of stress raising four daughters on my own, and working out is a great stress relief for me," she explained to viewers, adding:

"So I definitely kicked it up a notch and entered a bikini fitness competition."

Teresa was visibly more toned than she was when we last saw her, so she's definitely doing something right. 

And while many have been quick to claim Teresa's relationship with Joe is on thin ice, then the premiere may have proven just that.

"I wanted to do this when Joe was home, and he always said to me, 'You're not doing that.' He was like, 'You're not going on stage in a bikini,'" she said to her personal trainer. 

"It's another year until he comes home, so I was just like, 'I'm just doing it. I don't care what he says.'"

"So have we told him yet?" her trainer questioned.

"No," Teresa responded with a grin. 

"Since Joe's been away, I have gotten used to my independence. I haven't been independent like this -- I don't think ever, but I am doing this fitness competition for me," Teresa said in a confessional.

"I don't care what anybody thinks -- my husband or anyone. Sorry, Joe!"

It's certainly intriguing that Teresa managed to adapt without her husband, and her wording does seem to imply that it's her way or no way going forward. 

Now that we know Joe is facing deportation from the United States, it certainly raises questions about whether Teresa would go to Italy with him. 

This is all assuming the appeal is denied, of course, but still, there's going to be a lot of drama on the new season of this series if it chronicles Teresa continuing to veer away from married life. 

Teresa is the woman who is prone to lash out when her buttons are pushed, but this new iteration of her was sober and very empowering.

How long will that last? We give it a handful of episodes. 

Elsewhere, we finally got some much-needed insight into Dolores Catania's relationship with her ex-husband, Frank, who was allegedly disbarred as an attorney. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you know that Andy Cohen quizzed Dolores on the most recent reunion episode, and Dolores had no clue what he was talking about. 

"Frank broke my trust 20 years ago when he cheated on me, and over the past 20 years, Frank and I have built that trust again," Dolores dished in a confessional.

"But now it's gone, because when Frank was disbarred, Frank didn't tell me about it, and I found out in the most public way possible," she continued. 

Dolores Catania Promotes RHONJ

"I was embarrassed, and I looked like a liar. And that's what pissed me off the most."

"Since Frank lost his law license, I worry. Are we financially okay? Because we have two kids in college," she added.

And while Dolores is still mad at Frank, they have a new business venture that's helping them out. 

"Our gyms do great, but that's not stable. So now, Frank and I are flipping houses together. We've done this in the past."

"Frank hires the people to do the construction, and I would sell them. I was the realtor. Right now, we're on our second flip. The first one sold, and the money's good!"

Oh, and if you're wondering, Dolores is still dating her boyfriend, and he's totally not concerned about Frank. 

If the boyfriend were not part of the equation, one would think that Dolores and Frank were still an item. They live together, have a lot of chemistry, and still have the arguments people in love have every other day. 

Danielle Staub Smiles

Hell, even someone as wild as Danielle Staub picked up on it last season and used it to her advantage multiple times. 

Danielle is the type of person to cling to a storyline for dear life in order to get her face back on the small screen again. 

Her antics last season never landed her the regular cast member status, so look for her to amp up the crazy a few notches this year. 

The good thing here is that everyone seems to be picking up on Danielle's stirring. Teresa and Margaret were open and honest with Dolores about Danielle quizzing them about Frank being disbarred. 

Dolores seemed like she was going to flip the eff out at Melissa Gorga's 39th birthday party, but the new house flipper left the situation entirely and stood at another part of the room. 

Oh yes, this feud is going to be fun!

What are your thoughts on the premiere?

RHONJ Continues Wednesdays on Bravo!

Teresa Giudice: My Husband Getting Deported Just Sucks!

Teresa Giudice talked more candidly than ever before today about the very unusual and unfortunate situation affecting her family.

Appearing as a guest on Good Morning America, the Real Housewives of New Jersey mainstay discussed her husband's deportation at length.

Teresa Giudice on GMA

(It really is true: Joe Giudice will be deported back to Italy after he's released from prison in 2019 because he committed a felony and he never became a U.S. citizen, despite moving here for good as a child.)

Teresa described the sentencing, which a judge handed down last month, as "heartbreaking" during her spot on GMA.

She then elaborated as follows:

“Very sad. The girls are really upset. You know, it’s hard for them … Adults can handle anything. It’s hard for children to go through this. They’re asking themselves, ‘Why is this happening to me?’

"Like, ‘I want my daddy to come home.'"

Teresa Giudice Hold Hands

Teresa and Joe are parents to a quartet of daughters:

Gia, 17, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 12, and Audriana, 9.

Both Gia and Milania have made public pleas for the deportation ruling to be overturned, with the former writing on Instagram:

"My father is no threat to society. He is one of the most warm hearted people I know.

"My father did his time. And learned from his mistakes. Isn’t being in there supposed to make you realize your mistakes so you can become a better person?"

Teresa Giudice and Hubby

Teresa, meanwhile, says she's been getting support herself from Gia, saying on Good Morning America:

“I tell her every day she’s like the rock of her sisters. She’s helping me, you know, explain things to them - because my third daughter is having a really hard time with this.�

In 2014, Teresa and Joe each pleaded guilty to 41 counts of fraud, including mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud.

Moreover, Joe admitted that he did not pay approximately $200,000 in taxes.

It totally sucks that four young girls will be living far apart from their father, but it's hard to have too much sympathy for rich people who break the law and try to game the system.

Joe & Teresa Giudice Image

Teresa served 11 months behind bars in 2015; Joe’s 41-month sentence started the following year.

Then, on October 10, a judge found the restaurateur “deportable and ineligible for any kind of relief,� ordering him to leave the United States when his sentence concludes in March.

Giudice has said she will remain by Joe's side even when he leaves the country, but various insiders have said otherwise.

They predict a divorce.

“I never thought I would be in this position,� Teresa said on GMA, adding:

“We’ve been through a lot. I’ve gone through ups and downs, like being angry - but listen, I have to stay strong.

"I have four beautiful daughters that, you know, they need their mommy.�

What's the plan moving forward?

Where will Teresa go from here?

“Just take it one day at a time,� she concluded this morning. “That’s it.�

Teresa Giudice Finally Responds: Will She Divorce Joey G?

You've likely heard the rumors.

You've probably read the headlines.

But now we have the answer.

Teresa Giudice Sits and Poses

About four months after Joe Giudice was told he was going to be deported next year after he gets released from jail, his famous wife has answered the question that continues to hang over her and her family.

Will she or won't she divorce Joe in light of this troubling development?

Joe, who has been featured prominently on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, pleaded guilty years ago to multiple counts of financial fraud.

He was subsequently sentenced to over 40 months behind bars, a stint he is currently serving.

In late June, a judge decreed that Giudice (who moved here from Italy as a child, yet never became a United States citizen) must move back to his native country once he's a free man because he's an immigrant who committed a felony.

It's as simple as that.

Teresa Giudice Hold Hands

But Teresa and Joe's relationship seems complicated.

Can it survive such a traumatic jolt as one half no longer being permitted to live in America?

Is Teresa devastated by this news or secretly celebrating her upcoming freedom?

Asked by Entertainment Tonight over the weekend when she would ever divorce her husband, Teresa answered succinctly:

"No. We're going to be a family, and we're going to fight this and get through this."

Teresa Giudice and Hubby

Teresa and Joe pleaded guilty to numerous charges of fraud in 2014.

The mother of four was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison and started her sentence in January of 2015, but was released early.

Then, earlier this year, 31 months into his sentence, the U.S. Department of Justice confirmed that Joe had been ordered to leave the United States at the end of his prison sentence.

(He has fewer than 30 days to appeal the decision.)

But will he be going alone? Or might the entire Giudice clan uproot their lives to keep him company?

"We are not even thinking about [whether we'd move to Italy] right now. We're going to take it day by day. We're going to take it one step at a time," Teresa told ET, adding:

"First, we're going to process the paperwork to do an appeal, and we're going to get through that."

Teresa and Joe Giudice on Instagram

Continues Giudice:

"I can't predict the future, and I am not going to be... I am going to be positive about it," she said. "Joe starts talking about [the deportation order] and I don't want to talk about it yet...

"I shut him down. I don't want to talk about it, and what comes first is our daughters and we're going to fight this."

The embattled couple has four children:

17-year-old Gia, 14-year-old Gabriella, 13-year-old Milania and 9-year-old Audriana.

In response to her dad's situation, Gia recently tried to rally support for her imprisoned father.

"My father is no threat to society," she wrote as a caption to a throwback photo of dad and daughter, adding:

"He is one of the most warm hearted people I know...

"My father did his time. And learned from his mistakes. Isn’t being in there supposed to make you realize your mistakes so you can become a better person?"

Teresa Giudice REFUSES to Let Bravo Film Joe’s Deportation Appeal

As Joe Giudice faces almost certain deportation, Teresa has asked fans to pray for her family as they launch their desperate appeal.

Teresa is still a Real Housewife, and Bravo is offering her a hefty payday if she'll let their cameras film this tense process.

Curiously, Teresa has said no. Perhaps she is not as icy as people seem to think.

Joe & Teresa Giudice Image

RadarOnline reports that Teresa Giudice passed on a sizable offer to film her family's trials and tribulations as they appeal Joe's deportation.

Specifically, Bravo has reportedly offered Teresa $500,000 -- a cool half million. But Teresa turned it down.

"Teresa refused to film any special scenes," the insider reveals.

She is balking at this lucrative opportunity "because the attorney told her not to do anything until the final decision is made."

Her pleas for leniency might not go over well with a judge who learns that she's exploiting the drama of it all for a payday.

"She’s terrified to do anything to harm Joe," the source explains.

Teresa Giudice Shows Off Her Hair

Joe's imprisonment has been bad enough on his family, but that at least was understandable.

His upcoming deportation to Italy is exacting a serious toll.

"This situation is so bad for Teresa,� the insider says.

The source adds: “She’s not talking about it at all."

"She’s afraid that anything she says can be used against Joe," the insider laments.

Being a public figure can really backfire when it comes to having your day in court.

Milania Giudice and Joe Giudice

The report says that Milania recently visited her father in prison, but that Teresa was otherwise occupied at the time.

"Milania has a close relationship with her dad," the source says. 

The insider says that she had to see him because "she’s been so upset by everything."

Of course! She's a preteen and her father is her whole world.

"Joe’s family was shocked that Teresa didn’t go with her daughter," the source claims.

Milania Giudice and Joe Giudice, Throwback Photo

The insider then takes a harsher tone when discussing Teresa.

"Actions speak louder than words with Teresa," the source says.

"She tells everyone she is so devastated," the insider continues.

The source finds it odd that she asks for prayers "but then she doesn’t go visit him and doesn’t even go with Milania."

That seems unfair, especially considering that we know what Teresa was up to at the time.

Teresa Giudice and Daughters in the Bahamas

That source's judgmental tone aside, Teresa has four daughters, not just one.

We don't know who went with Milania (it's hard to imagine that a 12-year-old waltzed into the prison visiting area on her own).

Teresa was out looking at universities with Gia, who just a few months away from turning 18.

When people say that life goes on, they mean that Teresa's first responsibility is as a parent, not as a grieving wife.

She's looking to Gia's future.

We are sure that Joe wouldn't have it any other way.

Teresa Giudice and Hubby

As for Teresa's refusal to film, most of us can't imagine turning down half a million dollars under most circumstances.

But she has to be wondering how she would feel if the judge denies Joe's appeal and mentions that she had turned it into a media circus.

As we said, being a public figure can backfire.

Courts like to set an example and no prosecutor or judge wants to be accused of going easy on someone just because they're famous.

From Dance Moms to Jersey Shore, stars of reality shows have learned that they can and will be put behind bars if they break the law.

Teresa and Joe already learned that lesson the hard way.

Now she's just hoping and praying that being on their best behavior will keep Joe from being torn from his family forever.

Teresa Giudice Asks Fans to Pray for Her as Joe Faces Deportation

The Giudice family is rallying against Joe's impending deportation and asking their fans for support.

Teresa is still making time to do Real Housewives events -- it's part of her job, after all.

At a recent gathering, she asked fans in the audience to keep her family in their prayers as they fight to stay together.

Teresa Giudice and Hubby

Teresa Giudice took part in the East Coast Vs. West Coast Real Housewives Brunch at the Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Us Weekly reports that, while she was there, she used her platform to ask for emotional support from the audience.

"Teresa said to please pray for me and my family," an eyewitness reveals.

The eyewitness adds: "She really hopes Joe is out of jail to see [their daughter] Gia graduate."

Additionally, "She said she cannot wait to see the light at the end of the tunnel."

Teresa Giudice Hold Hands

Not everything that Teresa discussed was as upsetting as a family being torn apart.

According to the eyewitness, Teresa "was in really good spirits and made the crowd laugh several times."

"She explained that Dina [Manzo] and Jacqueline [Laurita] were asked to recommend beautiful women for the show," the eyewitness reports.

"Dina recommended Teresa," she shared.

The eyewitness then reveals: "Teresa said she does not know why Caroline [Manzo] did the show."

Shade.

Teresa Giudice Shows Off Her Hair

"And," the eyewitness shares. "There was a joke about if Teresa did the show, her husband would go to jail."

That prophecy has been fulfilled, then.

As far as doing the show, "she said she f--ken shouldn’t have."

"She said it is Jacqueline’s fault for her doing the show," the eyewitness adds.

"Teresa said she suckered Joe into doing the show," the report says.

The eyewitness continues: "and now that he is away, he has watched himself and says he was an a--hole."

Gia Giudice on IG

Apparently Gia and her mom have been looking at universities, but Teresa is strongly encouraging for her to stay close to home.

"Teresa said she is sick of driving far," the eyewitness reports. "So is pushing for her to go to Rutgers."

"She said she drives too much," the report continues. "From dropping off and picking up kids and going to see Joe, she is sick of driving."

Teresa also dished on her 17-year-old daughter's academic performance, which is ... a hell of a thing to do.

"She said Gia struggles in school," the eyewitness says. "And has tutors and she is tired of paying for them."

The eyewitness reports: "She said she gets good grades, but she is not a genius like her middle daughter, who gets straight As and is the smart one."

Teresa Giudice Instagram Pose

Teresa addressed other topics, beyond comparing the relative academic performances and intelligences of her children.

Specifically, Teresa had some not-so-kind words regarding her feud with Caroline, Jacqueline, and Kathy Wakile.

"She said she is sad she let them into her house, to be betrayed by them,� the eyewtiness reports.

“Fame and money will do that to family," the eyewitness characterizes of Teresa's words.

"She said," the report concludes. "You never go against family."

Teresa Giudice and Daughters in the Bahamas

Teresa and Joe have four daughters. Gia is 17, Gabriella is 14, Milania is 12, and Audriana is 9.

For them to lose their father to deportation -- a horror that is sadly all too common these days -- is nothing short of tragic.

While Teresa and Joe aren't perfect (fraud convictions and table-flipping are only the tip of that iceberg), they love their children.

(Even if Teresa openly gossips about Gia and also doesn't seem to understand that academic performance isn't synonymous with intelligence)

Seeing this family put on a brave face while getting torn apart is heartbreaking.

Joe Giudice Deportation: Daughter Milania Shares Heartbroken Plea

Last week, we learned the heartbreaking news that Joe Giudice will be deported to Italy after his release from prison.

Eldest daughter Gia Giudice is rallying support for her father in the hope that he can win his appeal.

And now, so is his younger daughter, 12-year-old Milania. You can read her impassioned plea below.

Milania Giudice and Joe Giudice

Milania Giudice took to Instagram and shared a pair of throwback photos that she took with her father before his incarceration.

"My dad," Milania begins her captions.

She describes Joe Giudice as someone "who is the best dad in the world."

That more or less how you'd expect a man's 12-year-old daughter to describe him.

Milania then writes that he "needs to come home."

Milania Giudice and Joe Giudice, Throwback Photo

Milania's captions continue as she vows that their family isn't going to let the court's deportation order go unchallenged,

"We aren’t done fighting, dad," Milania promises.

Joe has 30 days (fewer than that, now) to appeal the court's ruling.

"I can’t believe this is happening," she admits.

As someone who is not even a teenager, Milania was totally unprepared for the horrors that our world has in store for so many families.

Joe Giudice on the Phone

Joe has already been away from his family for long enough -- serving his time for fraud.

Until last week, Teresa and her daughters had been looking forward to his release in 2019. 

It was like the light at the end of the tunnel, when their family would be reunited.

Milania admits that she can't wrap her head around him being away from his family for even longer -- this time separated by an ocean instead of bars.

"I can’t imagine another day without you," she writes.

Teresa & Milania Giudice: Kids Rock! NYFW 2016

Milania vows that the whole family is working to see him returned home when he finishes his stint.

"We are gonna do everything we can to fight this daddy!!" she promises.

She gushes: "I love you with all my heart buddy."

A few years in prison might seem like a short time for adults, but it's a huge chunk of Milania's life that she's now enduring without her father.

This deportation order could make a bad situation even worse.

Teresa Giudice and Daughters in the Bahamas

Milania concludes her message with a simple, sad tag.

"#heartbroken," she writes.

We can imagine so.

While Milania is fortunate to have two parents who love her and to live a privileged existence, she still wants her father in her life.

And so do her sisters.

Teresa Giudice and Hubby

As we mentioned, Gia Giudice also sent out a call for support in preventing her father's deportation.

Where Milania speaks from the heart, Gia's passionate words come with a list of compelling arguments.

Significantly, she mentions that Joe was brought to the United States at the age of one by his parents.

Deporting him to Italy is deporting him from the only country and only home that he has ever known.

Italy is a beautiful country, but that doesn't mean that a person being shipped there upon release from prison would be the same as sending them home.

But Milania makes a very important point -- deporting him would fracture his family.

Teresa Giudice Pays Tribute to Husband With Utterly Ridiculous Photo

Teresa Giudice has broken her silence in regard to her husband's major, life-altering legal troubles.

And she's done it in uproarious and absurd fashion.

As you likely know by now, Joe Giudice was ordered to return to Italy last week upon the completion of his ongoing jail stint.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey personality is serving time for financial fraud and will be deported in a few months because he never actually became a U.S. citizen.

This is a common legal decision in the case of an immigrant who commits a felony.

To be frank, it's just not one you see play out very often for white collar crime.

It's also not one you see play out every often in front of the entire celebrity gossip world; folks who have been invested in Joe and Teresa since they first appeared on Bravo.

In the wake of Joe's sentencing, there has been plenty of speculation regarding Teresa's reaction.

Is she angry over it? Sad over it? Actually relieved because now she has an excuse to divorce Joe?

We haven't been able to say for certain because Teresa hasn't spoken out about the legal ruling.

Until now, that is.

Sort of.

statue meme

The veteran reality star - who spent close to a year in prison herself for this same bankruptcy-related crime - took to Instagram over the weekend and shared the above meme.

It features the Statue of Liberty with her face in her hands, presumably crying over the fate of Joe Giudice.

How moving and profound, right?

The Statue of Liberty is a symbol of immigration in the United States and Teresa captioned the Instagram image with a series of praying hand emojis.

If God is listening, Teresa really wants Him to get involved here.

gia throwback

Oldest daughter Gia, meanwhile, has made multiple pleas for her father to get a break here.

She thinks Joe is being unfairly targeted because he's Italian, which, well... it's a take, we suppose.

Gia, who is only 17 and who we do feel horribly for in light of this decision, has also shared the throwback photo above.

She has included with it an emotional caption that reads:

This is one of my favorite pictures of me and my dad. my father is no threat to society he is one of the most warm hearted people I know, he would never harm a soul.

He puts everyone else before himself.

Does he, though?

Gia continued:

I know who my father is and I think many of you do too. My father did his time and learned from his mistakes.

Isn’t being in there supposed to make you realize your mistakes so you can become a better person?

And that’s exactly what my father did. He hasn’t felt or looked this good since he was in his 30’s.

We have so many plans to do as a family when he gets out. I need my father to be here.

Gia continued her impassioned plea:

My father belongs with us and his entire family.

My father came into this country when he was one years old, the United States is the only country he knows, spread the word #bringjoehome.

Joe, who has lived in America since he was a child but never obtained American citizenship, will get out of prison this spring.

And immigrants can be deported from the United States if they are convicted of “a crime of moral turpitude� or an “aggravated felony,� according to U.S. law.

He and Teresa share four kids: daughters Gia, 17, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 9.

This absolutely sucks for them.
