Giudice then expressed his appreciation for his family and fans. “I just want to let you know that I love you, and I’m always here for you. You know that,” he said. Celebrity Mugshots Opens in New Window
Giudice completed his sentence for fraud in March and was immediately taken into ICE custody after a judge ordered that he be deported to his native Italy. He remained incarcerated as his lawyers appealed his case, but asked to be released while he waits for a ruling and flew to Italy on October 11.
Joe’s message came as his wife, Teresa Giudice, confirmed that the couple would appear in a tell-all interview with Andy Cohen.
