Real Housewives’ Teresa Giudice reveals 10-year-old daughter Audriana’s bullying hell after dad Joe’s imprisonment

REAL Housewives Of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice last night revealed her daughter's bullying hell following the imprisonment of the girl's dad Joe.

On Wednesday's show, Teresa told of the devastating toll of her husband's legal fight on the family - especially their 10-year-old daughter Audriana.

It was revealed that the schoolgirl has been picked on by classmates after her father Joe, 47, was jailed following a fraud conviction.

Last month he was deported to his native Italy while awaiting a final legal decision on whether he can return to the US - leaving his worried family remain in limbo.

Teresa said on last night's show that daughters Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 13, and Audriana are all struggling with the ordeal - saying: "The girls are not good".

Teresa, 47, added: "This all sucks. 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.

"It’s like the never-ending saga. It sucks. It’s f***ed up."

Teresa added that her youngest daughter Audriana has been especially impacted - while devastated Milania "shows it the most".

Eldest daughter Gia, 18, revealed Audriana's classroom teasing, saying: "People have said things to her in school."

Teresa added: "She started crying to me."

The emotional conversation on Wednesday's episode was filmed on March 14, the day Joe, 49, was finally released from prison, People reports.

He had been sentenced in 2014 to 41 months after pleading guilty to mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud - while Teresa was locked up for 11 months in the same charges.

But instead of being allowed home, Joe was detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement as he was subject to deportation because of his conviction.

The reality star was born in Lombardy and though he emigrated to the US as a child he never obtained American citizenship.

Teresa has found it hard explaining the complex situation to their daughters.

'WISH I WAS THERE WITH YOU'

She said on Wednesday's episode, filmed when Audriana was nine years old: "How do you explain to a nine-year-old that maybe their daddy isn’t coming home?

"They don’t care about the legal stuff. They’re like, ‘Why is this happening?'"

Dejected daughter Milania said: "It gets me so mad that today could have been the day that we could have been a family again."

Speaking to his daughters over the phone from his detention centre, desperate Joe said: "Love yous. Wish I was there with you.

"Everything is lock down over here. It drives me crazy."

Joe, now in Salerno, Italy, has twice appealed the deportation ruling - and is awaiting a final decision.

The family had an emotional reunion last weekend after Teresa and the girls travelled to Italy to be with Joe.

An upcoming TV special will reveal all about the trip.
