On Friday, a judge denied Joe Giudice's request to be released from the ICE detention facility he's been a resident of since his release from prison in March, meaning he'll have to continue to await the decision of his deportation appeal at the Clinton County Correctional Facility in McElhattan, Pennsylvania.
"No, no, not yet," Teresa said over the weekend when asked if she was in "a good place," according to Us Weekly. "It's a sad time with my husband and everything, so we're going to try and work it out as best we can. The most important thing is our four daughters, so I'm hoping Joe is able to stay in the United States."
The couple shares Gia, 18, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 10 -- and according to their reality star mother, they're all "going through a really difficult time right now."
In October of last year, Joe was ordered to be deported to his native Italy, which he left when he was just a baby. He finished serving his 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bank fraud five months later and was immediately placed into ICE custody. Teresa also served time for her involvement in the financial crimes -- 11 months in 2015 -- but she says the experience made her a stronger and more positive person. She wishes the same for Joe and anyone else bearing a similar cross.
"I had all these businesses and everything went crashing down, but look, I picked myself right back up," she noted. "If anybody else is going through hard times, don't worry about it. You will get through it. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I do believe that. You've got to be positive!"
"RHONJ" has documented much of the Giudices' legal affairs and home life, and Season 10 will be no different.
"If Joe gets deported, he'll never be able to go to their graduations, celebrate birthdays, anything. He's gonna be missing out on so much," a somber Teresa said in a preview clip of the upcoming season. "The girls adore their father, and no child should have to go through what my daughters are going through. They should have their daddy here."
Since their father's release from prison, Gia and Gabriella have been actively posting pleas on social media, begging to keep their father in this country.
"When you're a mom and your children are hurting, it just kills you so much," Teresa said in the clip. "If I could take any of this pain away from them, I wish I could."
