Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has her freedom back after spending 11 months in federal prison and a month under house arrest. Along with her freedom, she’s earned back the right to vote, something she’s looking forward to when the presidential election rolls around in November.
Teresa, who appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live earlier this week (watch video below) didn’t have to think twice when host Andy Cohen asked her who will get her vote. The RHONJ star revealed that she’s endorsing Republican frontrunner Donald Trump because “he’s amazing” — even if he did fire her from Celebrity Apprentice in 2012.
According to the ACLU, people in prison and parole cannot vote, but U.S. Citizens who have completed their sentence are able to vote — even if they served time for a felony conviction.
That means Teresa can vote for The Donald, but her husband, Joe Giudice will not be able to vote for Trump (or anyone else) in 2016. However, he should get out in time to vote in the 2020 presidential election — unless he’s deported.
During Teresa’s appearance on WWHL, she appeared to be shocked when Andy Cohen told her he would not be voting for Donald Trump in November.
“Of course, I’m gonna vote for Donald Trump,” Giudice told Cohen who told her that he’s “pretty sure” he’s not voting for the brash billionaire.
“Oh, my God!” Giudice exclaimed when Andy all but said “no way” to Trump. Why Teresa was surprised that Cohen, who is openly gay, doesn’t support Trump is mind-boggling — unless she is absolutely clueless about Trump’s views on gay marriage.
During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union in June 2015, Trump — who is on his third marriage — stated that he is for a “traditional marriage between a man and a woman.” Apparently it’s “traditional” to get married three times. But hey, he’s Donald Trump and getting divorced doesn’t seem to be a “YUGE” deal.
RHONJ star Teresa Giudice is joined by several other controversial celebs who endorse Donald Trump including Tila Tequila, a reality TV star who “sympathizes with Hitler;” controversial former MLB player John Rocker; musician and gun advocate Ted Nugent; and former Alaska Governor and Tea Party supporter, Sara Palin.
