‘RHONJ’ Teresa Giudice Says Her Children Are Taking Joe’s Prison Sentence the Hardest

Teresa Giudice is doing her best to cope with her husband being locked away and facing  deportation back to Italy, but she says her daughters are having a tough time.

The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star appeared Tuesday morning on GMA and sat down with Michael Strahan to talk about Joe’s 41-month prison sentence for fraud.

Giudice said “It’s hard for children to go through this,” adding that they say, “I want my daddy to come home.” She says they’ve tried to keep the news from their youngest daughter, Audriana, but she suspects she has been figuring it out. Among her 4 daughters, Giudice says 17-year-old Gia has become the rock for the family.

As for Joe, Teresa says she has gone to visit him at FCI Allenwood in Pennsylvania and says he is being “very positive.”
