The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice’s husband, Joe Giudice is in Italy awaiting for his final appeal hearing for his deportation case and in the mean time is planning to celebrate Christmas with his daughters in Italy and couldn’t contain his excitement sharing on Instagram, “Can’t wait till my girls come back to show them Salerno during Christmas.”

Joe served a 41-month long jail sentence for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud in 2016.  Teresa was tangled in this mess as well, serving about 11 months in prison but was released in 2015.

Joe was released from prison last year but was held by ICE because despite living in the United States for most of his life, he has no legal citizenship. He left for Italy in October to await the appeal.
