Teresa Giudice’s eldest daughter left for college just days after she returned home from partying in Mykonos— and the Real Housewives of New Jersey mom posted heartbreaking videos of her little girl moving into her dorm without her jailbird father by her side.

Gia Giudice, 18, is starting her freshman year at Rutgers University while her dad Joe Giudice sits in an ICE detention center facing deportation from the United States.

The reality star, 47, was filming all of Gia’s big day, including a sweet video of her hugging her little dog for the last time as she left her family mansion and moved into her tiny dorm with a roommate.

Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga, was tasked with moving all of Gia’s belongings into her dorm and putting together her new room, a heartbreaking replacement for her incarcerated father, 49.

Radar exclusively reported that the U.S. Attorney General’s office fought Joe’s appeal to remain in the United States, and demanded the felon be deported immediately.

Days before Gia’s big move, her Bravolebrity mom was spotted partying on Mykonos, much to the horror of her in-laws back home, a source claimed.

“How could you party like you don’t have a care in the world?” a source close to Joe’s family questioned about Teresa’s trip on Mykonos where she was spotted doing shots in a bar.

“Gia is leaving for college, and the other kids are on their own,” the insider claimed. “That is what she can’t talk her way out of: She can’t say she’s single and can party since Joe is in prison. This is about her kids!”

“When this huge family crisis is happening, and your kids are suffering, you go on vacation?” the source continued. “Teresa’s actions are unforgivable.”
