It’s been nearly a year since Teresa and Joe Giudice were indicted on 39 counts of fraud, and fans will now finally get to see how they’ve been coping. The couple is set to appear in court this summer, and after entering a guilty plea, are expected to do jail time — which for Joe, could even mean deportation.
In a preview for the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, we get a glimpse at the reality TV stars’ struggle, including how it’s affecting their children. In fact, in one scene, their oldest daughter, 13-year-old Gia, breaks down in tears while hugging her father and telling him, “I love you so much.”
Meanwhile, Teresa seems to have trouble coping with the looming prospect of her husband’s deportation. “Me without you doesn’t work,” she tells him. “This family cannot function without you.”
Of course, amongst all this, there’s still six other Housewives who are bringing drama to the table. Check out the preview above to see what to expect from Dina Manzo, Melissa Gorga, and new members, Amber Marchese, Teresa Aprea and Nicole Mauriello!
The show returns on July 13 at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
