The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s daughter started a petition to keep her father from getting deported but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the reality star believes it is “too late” for Joe Giudice.
While Gia pleas for her disgraced dad, Teresa is throwing up her manicured hands as she pursues divorce from Joe, according to a source.
Their teenage daughter Gia posted the petition asking for 50,000 signatures, begging the President to pardon her father so he would not be kicked out of the United States and sent to live in Italy.
“We request that our President, Donald J Trump review our petition and pardon my father to relieve him of this life sentence the courts are bestowing on him,” she wrote. “Yes in Italy he will no longer be incarcerated but will he ever be free if kept from his family and be able to be a productive member of society?”
The source close to Teresa told Radar that the RHONJ star was realistic about her husband’s chances of returning home to her and her four daughters.
“She’s been working on the divorce for months,” the insider explained to Radar.

A U.S. Immigration judge denied Joe’s appeal to remain in the country and he was moved to an ICE detention center in March when he was released from his 42-month prison sentence.
Gia’s heartbreaking plea for her father earned speedy support, but the online effort wasn’t likely to yield the results she had hoped for.
“She’s so f**ked,” a source close to Teresa told Radar about the reality star’s drama. “This whole petition is definitely the wrong move.”
As Radar exclusively reported, Joe’s family was unhappy that Teresa refused to appear in court on her husband’s behalf and beg the judge for mercy.
Her daughter’s attempt to drum up publicity for Joe isn't going to help, the insider told Radar.
“Nothing is going to happen a pardon and they know this,” the source insisted. “It’s too late now.”
The insider said Teresa’s newfound love for Joe was a day late and a dollar short. “She never cared this whole last year when it was so bad.”
