Reality star Teresa Giudice is reportedly throwing a farewell party for husband Joe, just days before he serves his 41-month jail sentence for fraud and conspiracy.
A close source told In Touch, "Teresa has gone all out for this party for Joe, which will be held on Monday night, at a northern New Jersey restaurant. It will be invite only, and several members of the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' cast, including Melissa Gorga, and Robyn Levy, are expected to be there.”
The insider added, "This is a very bittersweet time for Teresa because everyone wants to say good-bye and wish Joe well. Everyone has been so supportive of what the family has been going through. Cameras from the show will be there, but most likely will only be for a very short time. It will be a night filled with love and emotion. Teresa hasn't even thought about Joe leaving the house for the final time.”
It is rumored that Jacqueline Laurita, a member from "The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” will not be attending the party after her bitter catfight with Robyn Levy. The source explained, "Teresa and Melissa have been long-time friends with Robyn and are standing by her side. Jacqueline has been mouthing off about what happened on the trip to Vermont, and it hasn't been the entire story. Robyn felt provoked by Jacqueline, and stood her ground, resulting in Bravo deciding to send her home. Hours later, Jacqueline chose to go home on her own because she felt iced out by Melissa and Teresa. The last person Teresa wants to see at the party is Jacqueline, she doesn't want any drama.”
Joe has been spending his last days before prison with his daughters — Milania, Gia, Audriana, and Gabriella. In a pic on Instagram, Milania wrote, “I [love] my dad.”
Teresa has also been documenting what her girls are doing before their dad goes to prison. On Sunday, Teresa posted pics of Milania enjoying a trip to NYC and Gabrielle playing soccer at a tournament in Virginia.
Joe will start his prison sentence on Wednesday, just three months after Teresa completed her sentence.
