Teresa Giudice Heads to Prison Monday

Real Housewife of New Jersey Teresa Giudice is trading in her lavish lifestyle and Louboutins for a locked cell and a prison jumpsuit. The reality star is scheduled to check into prison on Monday, January 5th to begin 15 months behind bars for fraudulently obtaining millions in mortgages and failing to file taxes along with her husband Joe.


NorthJersey.com reported that during sentencing Teresa read a written statement aloud expressing her fear of prison:

"I fully take responsibility for my actions. I deeply love my family ... My four daughters are my life. I wrote this last night because I knew I was going to be nervous... I'm scared, I'm not going to deny it, I'm really scared."


Tre's husband Joe is sentenced to 41 months in prison and ordered to pay almost $500K in restitution. In addition to time behind bars, he could be deported back to Italy.

The Giudices won't serve their sentences concurrently because of their family obligations -- the couple has 4 daughters together. Their oldest daughter Gia posted this photo with her mom on January 1st:



And on January 3rd Gia tweeted this: 'can't sleep, to [sic] much stuff on my mind'

Earlier this year the tarnished stars listed their Towaco, New Jersey mansion for sale for almost 4 million dollars, as well as their summer home on the Jersey Shore.

In October they sat down with Andy Cohen for a "Watch What Happens Live Special" and pretty much said nothing. Cohen said later that the interview was "no piece of cake."

As to whether or not we will see Tre back on Bravo, Cohen told fans in Miami that he hopes so. I bet Teresa does too.
