Joe Giudice said goodbye to his wife Teresa and the couple's four daughters on March 23 to begin serving his 41-month sentence for fraud, but once he finishes his time at New Jersey's Federal Correction Institute, Fort Dix, Giudice may be forced to leave the country.
Since it was revealed that the Real Housewives star is not a citizen of the United States (he was born in Italy), he is facing possible deportation at the end of his jail term.
"I'm not even worried about that as far as that goes," he tells PEOPLE. "That, we'll worry about when I get out."
