Real housewife Teresa and Joe Giudice have been married for 20 years. They have four children together and have experienced an on and off again relationship. Recently, Joe Giudice was taken into custody for mail and wire fraud charges. Also, the new season of "RHOBH" began on February 12.

Teresa is no stranger to the judicial system. Teresa served 11 months back in 2014 for the same charges. It is unclear if the New Jersey couple will remain together after Joe is released from prison. In 2014, Teresa was sent to jail for the same charges as her husband, Joe. He now faces the charges himself and possible deportation.

Teresa's legal troubles

During a "Real Housewives Reunion," Teresa Giudice admitted Joe was the reason she faced jail time. Teresa even stated, “Of course I’m angry with him. I went to jail. I went to jail. Of course, I’m angry!” She continued to say, “So I’m angry that I came home, eight months later, I lost my mom. I do throw it in his face when I get mad. I’m like, ‘You shouldn’t have screwed up.”

What were their charges?

The charges that Teresa and Joe Giudice faced included taking out three million dollars in loans, hiding assets, and falsifying tax documentation.

In 2014, the couple pled guilty to all 39 counts. Teresa served her sentence in 2014. Joe later served his in 2016. The problems continued after it was revealed that Joe was not a United States citizen.

It is unclear if Joe will return home to New Jersey after his prison sentence. Joe Giudice was born in Saronno, Italy. His parents moved to the United States when he was a child. Joe never filed for citizenship.

The legal trouble threatens to send him back to Italy. Lisa Vanderpump is also sick of the drama.

After a court ruling to deport Joe, his lawyers filed an appeal. His attorney, James Leonard Jr., gave a statement to E! News, “The appeal has been filed and we remain optimistic that Joe will soon be home with his family where he belongs. We are extremely grateful for Joe's immigration attorneys Jerry Gonzales and Tom Moseley and are very confident in them.”

Teresa admitted, that if Joe gets deported, it’ll be the end of their relationship.

When asked by Andy Cohen if she’ll leave Joe if he gets deported, Teresa responded by saying, “It's like starting a whole new life," she said. "And they've been through so much already. So, I mean, I'm not doing a long-distance relationship. I'm just not doing it. I want somebody with me every day. I know exactly what happens, I'm sure he'll be with other women. It happens. We do the long-distance thing?

It's not going to work. I'll be like, ‘bye-bye.'”

It sounds like Joe Giudice had better find a way to stay in the United States if he wants to keep his family together.
