Teresa Giudice won't say the word 'criminal': 'I don't consider myself that'

Teresa Giudice is ready to move past her legal woes.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star opened up on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Sunday about why she considers the word "criminal" to be a four-letter word.

"I don't consider myself that," she explained to host Andy Cohen. "I don't even want to say that word."

While appearing on the program, Teresa also gave an update on her husband, Joe Giudice, who began his 41-month prison sentence in March. The two pleaded guilty to multiple charges of fraud in March 2014, but arranged to have their time served separately so one of them could always be with their daughters.

Teresa said that while Joe never watched RHONJ while free, he's been keeping up while behind bars.

"He never watched at home, and now he's watching it there," the 44-year-old reality star shared.
