Link to FacebookShare to XShare to Email has exclusively learned that The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Gorga wants absolutely nothing to do with his imprisoned brother-in-law, Joe Giudice, as he awaits possible deportation.

In his scathing new memoir, The Gorga Guide To Success: Business, Marriage & Life Lessons from a Real Estate Mogul, Joe Gorga, 39, snubbed his sister Teresa Giudice’s husband more than once!

The reality star featured never-before-seen family photos throughout the memoir of his wife, Melissa, their three kids, his sister, Teresa, and his niece, Gia Giudice. However, not one photo includes Juicy Joe Giudice!

Additionally, Joe Gorga left Joe Giudice out of the acknowledgments of his new book.

He does, however, include a touching tribute to his sister.

“To Teresa – You were always the one who trusted me and supported me. From letting me max out your cards for my first business to today, you’ve been my best friend and my sister,” Joe Gorga wrote.

“If I could change the last few years for you, I would, but I also know our Mommy and Daddy made us strong so we can overcome anything,” Joe Gorga added in his note. “I know you will. And I’ll be here for you.”

As first reported, a judge ruled in October 2018 that Joe Giudice will be deported from the United States to his native Italy after finishing his three-year prison sentence on fraud charges.

The Gorga and Giudice families have fought on and off-air for years.

In the book, Joe Gorga made it clear he questioned Teresa’s husband from the very start, despite having known him since they were kids.

“We were all kind of shocked,” Joe Gorga said. “He was a rough guy, but he was also kind of like family.”

Joe Gorga even admitted that his first fallout with his brother-in-law began decades ago over a shady construction deal.

“Joe Giudice disappeared for months and then subcontracted the work to this other guy who only made it worse,” Joe Gorga wrote.

Despite his bad blood with the jailbird, Melissa’s husband admitted that it wasn’t until Teresa was sentenced to prison that he started mending his broken relationship with his sister.

“It was a terrible time for all of us,” Joe Gorga wrote.

Now, Joe Gorga credited himself for stepping up for Teresa and Joe Giudice’s four daughters while his brother-in-law remains behind bars.

“I’ve been able to show up for Teresa and her girls. I get to be a magician for the whole family,” Joe Gorga wrote. “I get to surprise them and fix what used to be broken.”

On Monday, Joe Gorga admitted on Fox 5 that Teresa has “no choice” but to divorce the jailbird if he is deported to Italy.

Joe Giudice appealed the judge’s deportation ruling late last year. A judge has yet to sign off on whether or not he will ultimately have to leave the country.
