First Look! Teresa Giudice's Emotional Reaction to Sentencing
After being sentenced to 15 months in prison for bankruptcy fraud, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice is in shock.
The day after her sentencing, Teresa and husband Joe Giudice, who was sentenced 41 months, sat down with “Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen.
Teresa, who will serve her sentence first, candidly shared how she was feeling. “I was so nervous yesterday that I was shaking. My nerves were pulling. At one point, I couldn't move my fingers. They were stuck. I couldn't open my hands. My nerves were shot. I've had sleepless nights. I, of course, I was shocked. It was very unexpected. I don't even know what to say.”

Holding hands with her husband, the cookbook author explained she is the primary caregiver in her house, so she wants to make sure Joe takes care of their four daughters while she's away.
She said, “My husband is a great father, a great husband, but I do everything with my daughters. I'm the one that's hands-on. All I've said to my husband was, 'Please take care of our daughters, that's all I ask. You've gotta do what I do.'”
What really broke Teresa's heart, however, was how her oldest daughter, Gia, 13, took the news. “She said it's going to be okay. She was being strong for me, I could tell. She said, 'Mommy don't worry about it. I'll be there. I'll help Daddy with the girls.' She said, 'That'll make me a better mom. That'll prepare me for when I'm a mom.' Oh my god, it broke my heart when she said that. She said the one person she was worried about was me.”
