On Tuesday morning, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star walked GMA host Michael Strahan through the nightmare she endured since learning Juicy Joe will have to return to his native Italy. Radar was the first to report the shocking judge ruling.
"It's very difficult. We've been through a lot," Teresa confessed. "I've gone through ups and downs and being angry."
In the video above, Teresa, 46, revealed her main concern right now is for her and Joe's four daughters, who are taking the news particularly hard.
"You know, it's heartbreaking," Teresa said. "Very sad. The girls are very upset. It's hard for them."
The reality star admitted that adults "can handle anything," but her children are now left questioning, "why is this happening to me?"
The reality star also revealed that Joe, 46, is "being very positive" behind bars.
But she still doesn't understand why her husband never applied to become an American citizen. The mother of four even blamed it partially on Joe's parents.
"His dad became an American Citizen before he was 18, and then his mom did it after he was 18 and then the laws changed. So I don't know why they never made him an American Citizen," said the New Jersey housewife.
RHONJ co-star Dolores Catania exclusively revealed to Radar this week that Teresa and Joe will "live separately" after he's deported.
Joe has until November 9 to file an appeal to the shocking ruling.
Going forward, Teresa told Strahan she has no choice but to "take it one day at a time."
"I never thought I'd be in this position," she admitted.
