Shortly after a New Jersey judge sentenced 'Real Housewives' stars Teresa and Joe Giudice to prison time for fraud, the couple sat down with Bravo's Andy Cohen. Teresa told the 'Watch What Happens Live' host she was 'shocked.'

Teresa and her husband Joe were found guilty of fraudulently obtaining millions of dollars in mortgages and failing to file another million in tax returns.

At the end of September, Joe Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in prison and ordered to pay more than 400-thousand dollars in restitution and could be deported to Italy.

Teresa was sentenced to 15 months behind bars. The sentences will be served at separate times for the sake of the couples four daughters.

Teresa will serve her time first and is scheduled to surrender herself the first week in January of 2015.

According to US Weekly, Teresa did address her children during the interview saying her oldest daughter Gia is 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,'" Teresa said.

"Oh my god, it broke my heart when she said that. She said the one person she was worried about was me."

The full interview with Andy Cohen airs on a special edition 'Watch What Happens Live.'
