James Leonard Jr. told Page Six in no uncertain terms that Teresa and Joe are not getting a divorce. He’s the thing. There was absolutely no context for this quote. He could have just as easily said Teresa didn’t have a ham sandwich for lunch today. It’s unclear if Page Six actually contacted him, or if he just rang up the website to make the announcement completely out of the blue. It’s bizarre.
Perhaps it might have made sense weeks ago when Teresa went to Luann de Lesseps cabaret show and oddly inquired about what it was like for her going through a public divorce on RHONY. Since then there has been nary a peep about her marriage in the tabloids. So why bring it up now?
Here’s what her creepy lawyer said today:
“Teresa is not talking about getting divorced, she is not thinking about getting divorced and she’s not filing for divorce,” Teresa’s lawyer, James Leonard Jr., told Page Six on Monday. “It’s not happening, not just now, but never. I can’t be any more clear about it.”
ICE has had a deportation detainer on Joe since very shortly after he was incarcerated and the process has already begun at the request of Joe’s lawyers. They likely will not be able to stop him from being transported to a deportation facility upon the completion of his sentence on March 14, 2019. With less than six months until the transfer date, the deportation proceedings have a long way to go. Ultimately, it is way more likely than not that Joe will be deported. Surely Teresa’s lawyer friend has told her that.
So are we to believe she is planning her move to Italy? With the oldest daughter in her senior year of high school, will she take the younger three to Italy and leave Gia in college? Joe will never be able to work again. How would Teresa support the family if she moved to Italy?
How many more season could RHONJ possibly have? Bravo is not thrilled with the season that is wrapping up now. What on Earth could Teresa do to earn a living in Italy?
How do you think this will all work out? I think she’ll divorce Joe.
