Teresa Giudice on coping with her husband Joe's deportation: 'I have to stay strong'

"If Mommy breaks down, they are going to break down, so Mommy has to be the rock of the family, which I am", she emphasized.

She said her husband Joe was staying "positive" as he face deportation.

'Adults can handle anything.

Also with her were several reality TV vets: Sonja Morgan from Real Housewives Of New York, Jonathan Cheban from Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Vicki Gunvalson from Real Housewives Of Orange County.

Teresa is letting the good, the bad and the ugly play out on "Real Housewives of New Jersey" - and she's not here for the haters! "It was something I always wanted to do".

Teresa has been on her own since her husband went to prison for conspiracy to commit fraud in 2016 for 41 months, only for judges to rule for Joe's deportation back to Italy once the sentence was complete. 'His dad became an American citizen before he was 18 and then his mom did it after he was 18 and I don't know why they never made him an American citizen'.

Teresa is "a survivor", says Dolores, who's been friends with the OG of RHONJ for more than 20 years.

Asked if she was angry with Joe, for not applying for citizenship himself, she said of her husband of almost 20 years: 'He and I never thought I'd be in this position'. "We keep saying he's at work", Teresa admitted.

Teresa and Joe Giudice's daughters, Gia, 17, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 12, and Audriana, 9, have been through some incredibly hard times in their young lives.

Teresa Giudice said the family is appealing the court's ruling to deport Joe. "I have to stay strong". I have four daughters to raise, and I don't understand why people would criticize me for that. "I'm just taking it one day at a time", she answered. "She's helping me explain things to them because my third daughter, Milania, she's having a really hard time with this". "I'm doing it all by myself". Teresa teased, "One of them, I do get into with the next season". I don't live in the future.

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.

Their eldest daughter, Gia, is applying to colleges now and already knows what she wants to do for a living. She dished, "He really didn't see me in the swimsuit, 'cause that's when you get the full effect".
