"Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Teresa and Joe Giudice -- who face up to 50 years in prison for multiple fraud charges --recently sat down for their first post-indictment interview and revealed how they're doing in their personal lives.
"I can't fall apart," Teresa told Bravo's Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens: Live" in an interview that will air Sunday. "I have my daughters. They mean the world to me."
Clasping hands and wiping away tears, the couple admits that the situation has been extremely difficult. Teresa, 41, and Joe, 43, pleaded not guiltyin late July on 39 counts, including conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, and bankruptcy fraud.
Teresa went on to say, "You know, maybe out of all of this... I don't know... You go through things in life, I don't know why... I'm asking, 'Why is this happening to me?'"
Crying, Teresa says she tries to see the silver lining in the situation. "Maybe something my daughters can learn from this is my mom was really strong through this and she was there for us."
