It’s out of the frying pan and into the fryer for Joe Giudice. On Thursday, the onetime Real Housewives of New Jersey star was officially released from federal prison after completing his sentence for fraud–and immediately transferred into ICE custody for possible deportation. “The custodial aspect of Mr. Giudice’s federal sentence does, in fact, expire on or about March 14, 2019,” his attorney told E! last week. “However, due to the immigration order and detainer lodged against him, that is not a release date, meaning he is not coming home on that date.” TMZ adds that it’s unclear where ICE is holding Guidice, but that he will remain there to await a court ruling about his possible deportation to his native Italy. His wife Teresa, who did time for fraud before Joe’s sentence began, has said she and her kids won’t go with Joe to Italy if he gets deported.
