Teresa Giudice Storms Off Set During Tense Interview

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice walked out of an interview with Access Hollywood on July 14, 2016 after the hosts pressed her on the possibility that her husband, Joe Giudice, will be deported to Italy after he's released from prison.

"Do you worry that it's the end of your family unit as you know it because there is all this talk that Joe could be deported since he's an Italian citizen. Do you think about that?" guest co-host Dave Karger asked.

"Um, next question, please," Teresa responded. "I don't think that's something you should be asking."

Joe began serving a 41-month sentence on conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud charges in March 2016, only a few months after his wife was released from prison on similar charges. During the couple's indictment, it was discovered that Joe is not a citizen of the United States and may be deported back to his home country upon release.

Access Hollywood tried to press Giudice on the issue after she referred to the initial question as "really rude."

"OK, well, it is a fact, and we're probably going to see it on the show, so I don't think that's a rude question," co-host Kit Hoover retorted.

"No, you're not going to see it on the show," snapped Giudice. "As a matter of fact, I'm going to leave." Then, in true Real Housewives fashion, she left, muttering and dragging a microphone behind her. Sister-in-law Melissa Gorga was also part of the interview. She initially remained in the studio, stunned, as the camera momentarily cut away. When the camera returned, she was gone too.

According to US Weekly, Giudice later explained her decision to walk out on the interview to NBC's New York Live. "It's nobody's business," she said. "It's a legal matter, and I'm not addressing it. So if anybody asks me, going forward from here, I'm going to walk off...so don't even try it. Because they'll just make it worse."

Regarding her starring role in the Real Housewives franchise, Giudice told New York Live (via People), "Unfortunately, when I first got into this, I didn't know all of this was going to happen, and I got into it for fun, not to be scrutinized and to be jabbed at, to be under a microscope. Like, I didn't know anybody in Hollywood or California. I mean I grew up in Jersey! So I didn't know about any of this. So I really got into it blindly and I was very naive."

Well, at least she didn't flip a table.
