Joe Giudice, the husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, has had his recent request for bond denied by a judge.

Teresa opened up to US Weekly about the update, and the star says she is not in good spirits:

“No, no, not yet,” she told the outlet.

 “It’s a sad time with my husband and everything so we’re going to try and work it out as best we can. The most important thing is our four daughters, so I’m hoping Joe is able to stay in the United States.”

Joe had requested to return home to his family in New Jersey as he awaits a decision on his deportation but was denied on Friday.

“I had all these businesses, and everything went crashing down,” Teresa added. “But, look, I picked myself right back up, and if anybody else is going through hard times, don’t worry about it. You will get through it. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I do believe that. You’ve got to be positive!”
