YORK, Pa. The husband of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice will be deported back to Italy once he's released from prison next year, according to a judge's ruling today. A judge made the ruling in immigration court on Wednesday and Joe has 30 days to file for an appeal, People reports. The embattled reality star, who is now serving a 41-month sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud, will be deported back to Italy upon his release.

Teresa Giudice served her 11-month sentence, first, in 2015.

Joe Giudice was born in Saronno, Italy and brought to New Jersey by his parents when he was one year old.

The 46-year-old shares four daughters with Teresa, whom he Wednesday in 1999 - Gia, 17, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 12, and Audriana, nine.

Joe's sentence began in March 2016. The judge reportedly admitted he finds "no joy" in having to tell a family this news, and Joe continued to press his side.

The couple pleaded guilty in 2014 to bankruptcy fraud and submitting false loan applications to get $5 million in mortgages and construction loans. However, she's reportedly optimistic that married pair will be able to appeal the judge's recent decision. "As much as Teresa said she would live in Italy with Joe in the past, that most likely won't happen as her father is in the States, and so is her family and friends", the source said. "I have to go back and tell my kids this, and they've been waiting to hear from me".

The denuclearization process, which looked so promising when Kim and Trump met in Singapore in June, is now looking stillborn. The pair discussed ending the reclusive state's nuclear weapons program and hostilities between Washington and Pyongyang.

A source told People magazine, "This is going to break her".

"This news was a huge blow to Teresa and Joe", the source said.

Teresa Giudice has yet to make an official statement on what her plans will be due to the decision. 'She always knew that this was a possibility, but she put it out of her head.

The pal went on to say, 'Teresa is incredibly strong, and whether she admits it or not, I think she had secretly prepared for this.

Forced separation: While there have been rumours that Teresa may divorce Joe, she has always denied it.
