Teresa Giudice Shows Off Game of Thrones Halloween Costume After Husband Joe's ICE Release
Joe Giudice was recently released from ICE custody and is now living in Italy
“Game of Thrones 🔥💀🎃👻,” the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 47, captioned two sexy photos of her costume, adding the hashtag “#halloweenparty.” The reality star attended a Fright Nights Halloween costume party in Coconut Creek, Florida, on Thursday night.
Teresa’s Halloween post comes amid her husband Joe’s ongoing deportation battle. Last week, he was released from ICE custody and flew to Rome, where he has been spending time with family while he tries to appeal a judge’s decision to deport him.
On Wednesday, a clip for the upcoming season of RHONJ appeared to show Teresa admitting she “hooked up” with someone amid Joe’s deportation battle, but her lawyer later told PEOPLE that the full context of the clip shows that she was talking about someone she had kissed “more than 30 years ago when they were in high school together.”
“We come back stronger than before ❤️,” she captioned the footage — which showed Joe, 49, sparring with his brother Pete, who is staying with him in Italy. “The fights just starting 💪🏼.”
On her Instagram Story, Gia shared another clip, this time featuring Joe himself speaking out for the first time since his release from an ICE facility last Friday.
“I’m going to come back and we’re going to fight,” he said. “Gotta fight your way back. Never give up.”
Joe has been away from the home he shares with wife Teresa and their four daughters — Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10 — since he began a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud in March 2016.
He was released in March, after an immigration court ruled to deport Joe last October. (Though he has lived in the United States since he was a child, he never obtained American citizenship, and immigrants can be deported if they are convicted of “a crime of moral turpitude” or an “aggravated felony,” according to U.S. law.)
Joe has appealed the ruling twice so far, and has been denied both times. A final ruling is expected in November.
A petition to be released back to his home wasn’t granted, but a request to go to Italy was. Last Friday, he was released from ICE custody and flew to Rome, where he has been spending time with family and FaceTiming his children.
While Teresa has publicly stood by her husband thus far, she has also been realistic about the fate of their marriage should he be deported, admitting on the RHONJ season 9 reunion that she’s “not doing a long-distance relationship.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres Nov. 6 (at 8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
