Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice was ordered to be deported from the United States to his native country of Italy by a judge in Pennsylvania’s York Immigration Court on Wednesday, Oct. 10, which means that he will be separated from his wife, RHONJ star Teresa Giudice and the couple’s four children. In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, Teresa’s RHONJ co-star and enemy Kim D reacted to the news and she revealed that while she doesn’t think Teresa will move to Italy with Joe, she also doesn’t think Teresa will file for divorce from her husband either — but only to keep up appearances. 

“She’s going to still keep playing the phony role because I heard that she got a contract with Bravo,” Kim, 57, exclusively told Life & Style. “I don’t know how true it is, about Joe being deported, so she’ll keep playing the actress like she cares but if anybody follows her and her one friend that she has, they’ll see that she can give two s–ts because she’s out every night. So yeah, she’s going to definitely play the role, but I don’t know how you can do that when you’re out every night doing your own thing. I’m out every night with my dogs more than she’s home with her kids.”

Joe, 46, is currently serving three years in prison after pleading guilty to fraud charges. But since Joe is not an American citizen, his conviction made him eligible for deportation, and that’s exactly what a judge ordered. Teresa, 46, was aware that Joe would be facing deportation, and she hinted that she would consider picking up her family and moving to Italy with Joe during the RHONJ Season 8 finale earlier this year. 

“I mean, Italy’s a beautiful place to live. I wouldn’t mind — I’m just saying,” she told reunion host Andy Cohen. “Listen, whatever God has planned for me, that’s what’s gonna happen. And I will embrace it the best I can.”

But Kim doesn’t think Teresa would actually go through with it. “Absolutely not! She ain’t moving nowhere,” Kim told Life & Style. “She’s staying here. She’s going to film her show, she’s going to ride the wave. No. That marriage was over when I said it was.”
