RHONJ star Joe Giudice returning to reality TV with cooking show and his family 'will definitely be participating'June 5, 2020
REAL Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice may have been deported to Italy, but he's set to return to the small screen.
The estranged husband of Teresa Giudice is set to launch his own cooking show, according to In Touch on Thursday.
The reality television star – who went to jail for fraud before being held by ICE, is putting his experience of cooking the books to good use and will be cooking up a storm for a show which will be streamed.
It will be a competitive cookery show called Juicy Joe’s Cucina: From Italy to Jersey, according to the website.
“Joe’s side of the family will definitely be participating,” producer Robyn Levy – who also starred in RHONJ – told InTouch.
“He appreciates his family’s involvement and support. At this time we can’t confirm whether Teresa [Giudice] will be taking part because of her contract with Bravo. But Joe hopes that his four daughters — Gia, Milania, Gabriella and Audriana — will join him virtually,” they were told.
Joe, who has been practicing on his Instagram feed, will reportedly be competing against budding chefs.
“For the finale, the person who makes the winning recipe will be flown for a cook-off against Joe in the Bahamas,” Levy shared.
“We don’t have to film with him in Italy — it can be him in another country. We have some opportunities that we can make happen, we just have to figure out the logistics and the details.”
“Joe knows some pretty big people in the food industry. What viewers will see is Joe pursuing his favorite hobby,” Levy adds. “Aside from being there for his family, food and wine is what he’s really passionate about. Cooking comes naturally to him.”
The show will eventually stream on the app Red Coral once it’s up and running.
Joe and Teresa split up for good last December after he moved back to Italy when his deportation appeal failed.
They both spent time behind bars for fraud, with Joe sentenced to 41 months in prison after pleading guilty to mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud charges in 2014.
The couple were married for 20 years before the broke up, and share four daughters.
