Teresa Giudice revealed on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday that Joe Giudice had plenty of reminders from her father to obtain US citizenship.
Joe, 47, has often painted his failure to obtain US citizenship as a thoughtless mistake, something overlooked in the passing of time.
He currently lives in Italy while appealing his permanent deportation, having gone there after spending seven months in a Pennsylvania ICE detention center following his prison sentence.
Regular reminders: Teresa Giudice revealed on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday that her husband Joe Giudice had plenty of reminders from her father to obtain US citizenship
Teresa's father, Giacinto Gorga, critiqued Joe's inaction on Wednesday's episode of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey.
He told his daughter: 'I slap your husband. He never did nothing right. He did everything wrong. Six times I told him, ''Go make a citizen.'' ''Yeah, Yeah, I'll go.'' He never did. He gotta blame himself.'
Teresa, 47, said Giacinto's comment related to the fact that every time the family went on vacation, Joe would be in one passport line and the rest of them in another, which held them up.
'And my father used to tell him, ''Go get your citizenship,'' and he's told him a million times,' Teresa revealed. 'My dad really did tell him a lot of times.'

As to the question of whether she should remain married to Joe, Teresa said her father supported 'whatever makes me happy.'

On Wednesday's RHONJ, Teresa was shown flirting with her hunky pool contractor Tony, a high school flame, but she told Andy that when they dated, 'We never did the nasty.'
In a preview of next week's RHONJ, Teresa's castmate Margaret Josephs, 52, made a pointed joke at her expense, saying that a friend of theirs didn't date men who were 'jailbait.'
The crack was clearly aimed at Teresa, who was rumored to be with a younger man, though she told Andy: 'I wasn't pissed. I knew what she was doing. I just wanted her to know that I knew.'

Although still married to Joe, Teresa might feel good about her dating prospects.
In a game called Brag Race, Andy challenged Teresa and Wrap Battle judge Carson Kressley, 50, to hand around a breast implant from Tamra Judge, 52, of The Real Housewives Of Orange County.
When the implant came to them, they were required to brag about themselves, and Teresa said: 'I have a
