Real Housewives Of New Jersey: Teresa Giudice and daughter Milania struggle with Joe in ICE facility

Teresa Giudice and her daughters struggled with patriarch Joe being held at an immigration facility on Wednesday's episode of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey.

The 47-year-old reality star opened the season 10 episode titled On Lock Down with a 7am solo workout at a gym.

She revealed that her husband Joe called her at 4:30am and said he was 'already transferred to ICE' after serving his three-year federal prison sentence following his guilty plea to 41 counts of fraud.

Teresa, who served 11 months in prison for fraud, said Joe was transferred in the 'middle of the night to avoid paparazzi'.

'He did his time, but he's not coming home,' Teresa said as she put herself through a grueling workout to cope with her frustration.

Teresa went home after her workout and acknowledged her four daughters were having a tough time without their father.

'All my girls are affected by Joe not being here, but Milania shows it the most,' Teresa said of her teenage daughter.

Teresa's father Giacinto Gorga, 76, relayed that Milania was feeling sick and her mother knocked on her bedroom door.

'Go away! Stop annoying me!,' Milania yelled at Teresa.

Teresa arranged for family lawyer James Leonard to speak with her daughters except 10-year-old Audriana who instead went to dance class.

James told Gia, Gabriella and Milania that it was 'supposed to be a happier day'.
