Joe Giudice has to get the hell up outta the United States — a judge is deporting him to his native Italy … once he gets out of prison, that is.
The judge issued the deportation order Tuesday in Pennsylvania. The ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey‘ star had begged the judge to let him stay in the U.S. with Teresa and their 4 kids, but no dice for the Giudices.
Joe’s more than halfway through serving a 41-month prison sentence for conspiracy to commit wire and bankruptcy fraud.
Teresa was well aware deportation was a very real possibility and sounds like she’s down to stand by her man. Earlier this year, during the ‘RHONJ’ reunion, she called Italy a beautiful place to live and said she’ll embrace the change if it comes.
Well, the change is coming. Unless, Joe files a successful appeal. He has until Nov. 9 to do that.
We’re told Joe’s lost 45 pounds since he began serving his sentence 18 months ago for bankruptcy fraud. He’s been working out nonstop and his diet has changed dramatically.
He’s also flexing his brain muscles by getting his GED. His syllabus includes the basics … English, math, science and social studies.
You’ll recall, Teresa also slimmed down during her 11-month stint behind bars. Joe got more time … 41 months, so he’s barely at the halfway mark. If things keep going the way they are he’ll be barely recognizable when he’s finally out.
Prison … it does a body good.
