Andy Cohen reveals when he learned that Joe Giudice is facing deportation. “I want to talk about some Bravo news,” he said during Monday’s episode of Radio Andy, explaining that he had just gotten off a plane to London when he learned that a judge ruled that the husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice will be deported from the United States to his native Italy at the end of his prison sentence, according to PEOPLE.

“I was just stunned by this news. I’m really upset about it. The man has done his time. He will have served his sentence. Teresa served her sentence,” Cohen continued, adding that “it seems so extreme to deport him.”

“Why not sentence him to community service or to something else that he could do to enrich the community instead of deporting him?” he asked. “He spent his whole life here. He’s got kids, he’s got a family, he’s never lived in Italy, I’m really upset about it. My heart just really goes out to Teresa and the kids.”

Cohen thinks Teresa seek help President Donald Trump. “Teresa knows the president, maybe she can make an appeal,” he added. “Teresa, call your friend in the White House.”

I decided this case as a matter of law.”

Joe, who can file an appeal by November 9 appeared at the hearing via teleconference from his Allenwood, Penn. prison reacted to the judge's ruling. “I don’t understand how I can be deported on this case. If you will, I’ll tell you my side. I shouldn’t even be here right now. I have to go back and tell my kids this, and they’ve been waiting to hear from me.”

Meanwhile, a source reveals that Giudice plans to appeal the deportation ruling, according to Us Weekly. “Joe isn’t going to go down without a fight and is going to appeal the decision,” said the insider. “This isn’t over, not by a long shot.”
