Teresa Giudice‘s biggest concern used to be which co star on The Real Housewives of New Jersey she was going to set up next but in the last year her life has radically changed. Sure, Teresa is still all over social media hawking her products, but in the back of her mind everything has changed. After pleading guilty last March to 4 federal charges, she now faces up to 27 months in jail. Her father-in-law’s sudden death helped Teresa and her husband Joe Giudice (he plead guilty to 5 charges) postpone sentencing until September 23rd, but still, it’s right around the corner.
According to the July 21st print edition of In Touch, Teresa has lost a lot of sleep while thinking about possibly being separated from her children. She also hates that her oldest daughter is made fun of on social media sites because of her parents’ mistakes. Obviously, Teresa’s critics think that perhaps she should have thought of these repercussions before choosing to defraud people — and they would be right.
Teresa is hoping that she gets house arrest and is able to still be a daily part of her four kids’ lives, but there is always the chance that the judge will decide to make an example out of her. If that happens, then her kids could be raised by someone else for over two years. The thought of that worst case scenario terrifies Teresa. Do you think that the judge should throw the book at her or should there be leniency for the sake of her kids? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
