Teresa Giudice looked stunning at the BHRC’s Eternal Beauty book launch event in Los Angeles. On September 26, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star headed to the celebration that benefitted the American Heart Association. The big event was held at the Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center. Teresa, 47, put on a happy face while she posed on the red carpet amid the heartbreaking deportation drama her husband Joe is facing. She was joined by Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi on the red carpet.
Teresa rocked a curve-hugging black halter dress. She wore black heels, chandelier earring and a gorgeous watch to complete her look.
Gretchen, 40, wore a chic black and gold minidress that was belter at the waist. She donned black knee-high boots and tassel earrings as well.
This joyous occasion was a break from the reality Teresa is facing at home. Joe, 49, requested on September 11 to be released from ICE custody in order to return to his home in New Jersey while he awaits a final decision from a judge regarding his possible deportation back to Italy. His request was denied on September 20.
Teresa revealed in January that she would separate from her husband of almost 20 years if he gets deported. The RHONJ star was also accused of having an affair in a trailer for the reality series' tenth season after being spotted several times with Blake Schreck amid Joe's deportation drama, which Teresa has denied.
In a recent preview clip for the reality series, Teresa and Joe spoke on the phone about their spiraling marriage. Tensions ran high, and their oldest daughter Gia listened in on a phone call where her father confessed that he never wanted to get married in the first place. Visibly upset, Gia, 18, told her mother that she didn’t want to hear any more of her parents’ drama. The family is also shown as they heard about Joe’s deportation on a phone call, as the mother-of-four dabs her eyes.
Though Teresa admitted that won’t stay with Joe if he is sent back to Italy, she feels bad that Joe will miss out on their daughters’ milestones.
Teresa and Joe share four daughters — Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana.
