Italy is looking good on Joe Giudice – and RadarOnline.com has the photographic proof!
As Radar readers know Joe, 47, has spent the last 10 days in his native Italy after a judge released him from the ICE custody that began when he completed his sentence for fraud in March.
While Joe remained incarcerated as his lawyers appealed his case, he asked to be released while he waits for a ruling and flew to Italy on October 11.
“Can’t wait to be on the beach with you,” one was captioned, while the other stated, “I love you beyond words, buddy.”
As he continues to appeal his deportation order in hopes of returning to the United States, Joe has clearly lived a different lifestyle in federal custody, and the proof can be seen in the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s svelte new figure!
Speaking out for the first time since his across-the-globe move, the reality star said in a video for Bravo’s The Daily Dish that his priorities have shifted.
“I’ve learned a valuable lesson from all this, and I know my family is the most important thing to me,” he said. “But it’s better that I’m out here than in there.”
The star concluded with a message to his family: “I just want to let you know that I love you and I’m always here for you. You know that.”
His family could soon be there for him as well, as Radar first reported his wife Teresa Giudice plans to take everyone on a flight to visit their exiled father in November.
Until then, there is still time left for Joe to beef up. Check out this Radar gallery for Joe’s diet and workout routine since landing in and leaving the big house.
On the same day as Joe’s emotional message, Teresa announced on Twitter that she and her husband will sit down with Bravo host Andy Cohen for a special segment in which they will talk about their time in prison, Joe’s deportation and their rocky marriage.
“Joe and I will be sitting down with @Andy to discuss everything that has been happening with us and our family the past few months,” tweeted the mom of four. “Tune in to a special ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey Special Event: Joe and Teresa Unlocked’ airing Sunday at 8PM on @bravotv #RHONJ.”
Big (Small) Debut
Before that, Radar readers last saw Joe in our exclusive prison pictures from November 2017 after he’d lost 45 pounds. At the time, Teresa said Joe had slimmed down through a diet and exercise program behind bars.
On Sunday, October 13th, Gia posted another photo of her thin father smiling next to his brother Pete.
“So happy your (sic) together right now,” she captioned her Instagram post. “Enjoy see you in a few weeks daddy,” ending the message with two heart emojis.
Making A Dent
Joe seems to be sparring with a boxing coach, and has made quite a dent on his previously flabby physique.
Joe’s new look is a big turnaround from how he entered prison. As Radar reported, the father of four arrived to Fort Dix Correctional Institution appearing “drunk and belligerent." He was immediately sent to maximum security to sober up.
