A judge ruled exactly two weeks ago that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice must be deported to his native country of Italy, upon the completion of his 41-month prison sentence for fraud.
And according to an all new report, Joe’s wife Teresa Giudice is refusing to film any scenes about Joe’s deportation, even turning down an alleged $500,000!
News of Teresa’s refusal to film her latest life crisis is quite surprising since the Bravo reality star is known for cashing in on all of her major life events – good or bad.
Radar Online is however stating that Teresa, 46, is fearful that filming scenes about Joe’s deportation could jeopardize his legal case, as Joe is apparently planning to appeal the judge’s ruling. The judge gave him 30 days to file an appeal during the October 10 court hearing.
“Teresa refused to film any special scenes because the attorney told her not to do anything until the final decision is made,” revealed a source close to Teresa.
The source claims that Teresa even turned down a half-a-million-dollar paycheck from the Bravo network.
“She’s terrified to do anything to harm Joe,” the insider stated.
“This situation is so bad for Teresa,” the source continued. “She’s not talking about it at all. She’s afraid that anything she says can be used against Joe.”
And while Teresa is said to be heartbroken about Joe’s deportation news, she is still refusing to visit him in prison. Sources tell the outlet that following the judge’s ruling, Joe and Teresa’s daughter Milania went to visit Joe but Teresa did not go with her, instead choosing to follow Gia to go look at some colleges.
“Joe’s family was shocked that Teresa didn’t go with her daughter,” claims the source. “Actions speak louder than words with Teresa… She tells everyone she is so devastated but then she doesn’t go visit him and doesn’t even go with Milania.”
Following the judge’s decision, Teresa broke her silence by sharing a photo of a crying Lady Liberty. And just this weekend, she asked fans to pray for Joe so that he could get to see their 17-yr-old daughter Gia graduate high school.
