Viewers were shocked during this week's episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey to hear that Joe Giudice is blaming his wife, Teresa Giudice, for not making him a U.S. citizen.

 "He blamed me yesterday," she told daughter Gia and her brother, Joe Gorga. 

"He said why didn't I make him an American citizen."

Bravo then played footage of an angry call from Joe:

 "Listen, alls you had to do was pick up a phone and call a lawyer," Joe snaps at Teresa, who replies, "Right, so why didn't you do it? Why's it on me now?"

Gia was defensive of her father: "He called me five times yesterday, and he said it's coming to a point now where every single one of his hopes are getting denied, and he can't live with it. He's just speaking out of his ass now. He's going crazy. That place is a sh*thole! My dad is stuck in a two-by-two with five people. I don't know what the hell to do."

Joe has since been deported back to Italy. He is awaiting a decision from the judge as to whether he can return to the country, but it's unlikely that he will be allowed to return any time soon.
