AceShowbiz - Teresa Giudice has opened up about her family's recent reunion in Italy, days after she and her daughters returned to the U.S. The reality TV star has sat down for an interview on "Good Morning America" to air on Thursday, November 14 and says about the trip, "We were there to enjoy each other's time. You know, lots of laughs, lots of tears and reacquainting with each other."
"It was pretty amazing. I had the best time ever, it was so good," Teresa tells ABC News Correspondent Paula Faris during the interview. Gushing about their four daughters, the Bravo star adds, "Joe and I were just so amazed how mature and beautiful and smart [our daughters are]... they blow us away."
The 47-year-old TV personality goes on revealing that it wasn't easy for her husband Joe Giudice to be separated from his children again. "Listen, he said he cried," Teresa shares. "After we left, he cried the whole day, he said. Missing his daughters... he was so sad."
Teresa and the couple's four daughters, Gia, Milania, Gabriella and Audriana, flew from New York's JFK airport to Italy on Thursday, November 7 to visit Joe in their home country, where he currently lives after he was released from ICE custody in October.
The girls themselves seemed to be not ready to be separated from their father again. As they left Italy for the U.S., Gia shared a selfie with her sister Audrina and their father Joe on Instagram Stories and wrote in the caption, "Love you see you soon." Gia and Audriana were holding tightly onto their father as their eyes looked teary in the image.
Meanwhile, in the Wednesday, November 13 episode of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey", Teresa revealed how the girls are having a hard time with Joe's prison stint and his departure to Italy. "The girls are not good," she said. "This all sucks."
She added, "All of my girls are affected by Joe not being here. We all want to move on with our lives and be happy again but it's impossible 'cause it's still hanging over our heads that Joe can be deported." She further lamented, "It's like the never-ending saga. It sucks. It's f***ed up."
Teresa also said it was especially hard on Milania, who "shows it the most," and their youngest daughter Audriana, whose friends have teased her about Joe being behind bars. "People have said things to her in school," Gia, Teresa's eldest daughter, chimed in. Teresa added, "She started crying to me."
Joe is still waiting for final decision on his deportation appeal.
