In this preview for the next episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa and Joe Giudice head back to court and shock everyone by pleading guilty to some of the fraud charges they were indicted on.
“Teresa and Giuseppe Giudice both admitted to a federal judge that they committed mortgage and bankruptcy fraud,” a spokesperson reveals, adding a statement that Teresa that says: â€œToday, I took responsibility for a series of mistakes I made several years ago. I have said throughout that I respect the legal process and thus I intend to address the Court directly at sentencing. I will describe the choices I made, continue to take responsibility for my decisions, and express my remorse to Judge Salas and the public. I am heartbroken that this is affecting my family, especially my four young daughters, who mean more to me than anything in the world. Beyond this, I do not intend to speak specifically about the case outside of court, at the recommendation of my attorney and out of deference to the Government and our legal system.â€
Teresa turns to prayer, reading scriptures and saying, “Please, God, I really need protection right now. Joe and I and the girls. Please protect our family.”
“When you get married, one of the vows is through good times and bad. Through sickness and health, until death do you part,” Teresa says in her interview. “So we are going through rough times. And we are going to make it through.”
“Before this happened, I knew nothing about our legal system,” Teresa admits. “But if anything, through all of this, it has made Joe and I stronger. I know who Joe and I are, we’re good people, and in my heart and in my soul I will make sure that this is rightâ€¦ whatever right means.”
